Beats Half Marathon Training – Week 2 + Discount Code

Hello everyone!

I hope you all have been having a great weekend so far and have fun plans for your bonus day off tomorrow! I have to say, I’m definitely excited to have an extra day off this week. It’s been forever since I’ve taken a day off so this is a much needed break for me. In my opinion, all weekends should be 3 days anyways. That way you get one day to bum around, one day for fun stuff and one day for chores. Am I right or am I right?!?

Weekend in Review: Paint and Sip, Hiking and Carb-Loading!

Not sure how you guys feel, but I’m definitely not ready for the weekend to be over. I had a blast visiting with my family, reconnecting with old friends and catching up with friends I haven’t seen in a couple of weeks because of life craziness. There’s honestly nothing better than spending time outside enjoying the beautiful fall weather that Seattle has to offer with awesome people.

Since I’ve got quite a few pictures to share, I’m going to keep the commentary down to one sentence per picture. As always, I’m linking up with Tara at Running N Reading, Katie at Healthy Diva Life and Erin at Her Heartland Soul for their weekend recap linkups. If you have a blog, consider linking up your weekend recap posts too and/or stop by to read what others did over the weekend! So now let’s get into it!  Continue reading

Friday Favorites – Sappy Stuff, The Royals and more!

I know… I know… I’m checking in pretty late for Friday Favorites. I got off work a bit early today and really had the urge to write a blog post, so here we are. I’ve really been struggling to keep up with blogging on a regular basis, as I’m sure you can tell, since I’ve moved and started a new job but I’m not giving up yet.

Being a part of the blogging community is something that I really enjoy and it makes me happy, despite the fact that I usually can’t fathom staring at a computer screen any longer by the time I make it home at the end of the day. On top of this being something that I enjoy, I’ve recently started to realize that it is actually something that means something to other people. Who knew?!?!

Which leads me to my first favorite of the day…

Weekend in Review: Happy 30th To Me!

Last Thursday I celebrated the big 30, but I’ve been celebrating all week long. I’ve been told that birth week celebrations are a thing so I’ve been taking full advantage of it! I’ve also got big plans to celebrate with a group of friends next weekend by crossing something off of my bucket list, so I’m really excited for that too! Continue reading

So That Happened… Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Hey there!

Congrats on making it to Thursday! That’s no small feat by any means and definitely deserves a congrats and a pat on the back in my book. Since I’m not there to do it, raise your arm up in the air and give yourself a nice big pat on the back. PERFECT!

Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get into my contribution to Thinking Out Loud Thursday, hosted by Amanda at Running With Spoons where I talk about all things random and at the top of my mind right now. Let’s dig in!

Seahawks 5k Race Recap

Hey there!

I’m coming to you all a little late with my recap of the Seahawks 5k, but better late than never right? I signed up for this race a few months ago thinking I would be more back to normal than I actually ended up being when I made it to the start line. I didn’t go into this race with high hopes or expectations of being able to run the entire race, since the injuries from my car accident have been really aggravated lately so I was just planning to take it easy and not push things too hard. Not really my idea of a great 5k experience, but you do what you’ve gotta do, right?

Weekend Recap – Super Bowl XLIX Edition!

Hey there!

I’m checking in with you a little later than normal today because I had quite the eventful night last night, as you can probably imagine. I’m absolutely shocked after the big game yesterday. Just baffled. I actually considered not blogging today to mourn my loss, but I’m still so proud of everything that our boys accomplished this season, so I’m trying to focus on that instead.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday Everyone!

I can’t believe the day is finally here! EEEEKKK! I’m so excited to bust out all my green and blue and hang out with some of my favorite people to root on the Hawks! I’ve got all my blue and green treats ready to go and I can’t wait to stuff my face in a plate of cupcakes eat one cupcake in a very lady like manner. But before all the excitement starts and we all enter into a sugar coma, here are some links I came across this week that I wanted to share with you! Enjoy!

Stories From My iPhone…

Hey there!

Bet you didn’t think you’d be hearing from me TWICE in one day! I finally got my act together and organized all the random thoughts into my brain into a blogging calendar for the next week or so (insert clapping and whistling here). I know, I know… it doesn’t sound like that big of a deal, but seriously spend a day inside of my brain and you’ll realize this was no small accomplishment! I’ve got some really exciting posts and giveaways coming up for you guys that I can’t wait to share! EEEEKKK!

I’ve never sweat so much watching someone else workout in my life…

OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously. I can’t even get over the Seahawks vs. Packers game. I’ve never sweat so much watching someone else work out in my life! I’ve also never screamed so much at a TV in my life. What a game. Like seriously though. What a game. Continue reading
