One day I will get back to writing good content + about running, but until then enjoy all of these Christmas trees that I loved while shopping around town the other day (plus the last one which is my tree at home!)
So I know I’m late on posting this but holy moly I am thankful so many things in my crazy, wonderful life.
I don’t have to run, I get to run.
I choose to work three jobs because I love them all and I want to provide for my family.
I get to live in my hometown surrounded by family, lifelong friends and new friends.
I got to travel with my husband and my dog to see our family in Tennessee.
Look at how cute Murphy is!!
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
I ran on the treadmill yesterday and did a Beachbody 21 Day Fix workout today. Here’s the getting back on track!
Most of western Kentucky moved trick-or-treating to last night since the weather was awful for today (cold, lots and lots of rain). So Ryan and I (with a little help from Murphy) handed out candy last night!
For everyone out and about tonight – be safe and have fun! Eat some candy for me 😉
Welcome to July — isn’t that crazy?! July is randomly one of my favorites months and I love celebrating Independence Day, the last few lazy weeks of summer (before my side job as an adjunct professor starts back up) and all the fresh fruits and veggies from our friend’s garden + farmers market.
I also am in the minority when I say I LOVE to run in the heat. I swear I am faster in the summer. While there is not a local Independence Day race in my hometown, I am planning on rocking my red, white and blue tomorrow on my run!
This month I am pinning all the patriotic things, running gear and easy summer recipes.
Runners are usually pretty easy to buy for — some new gear, an entry to a race or even a massage makes us happy. But for Valentine’s Day, I decided to compile a list of some unique, fun and simple gift ideas.
Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you all had a great Christmas weekend with friends and family and lots of good food. It was a busy weekend for us, but one filled with lots of love.
Ryan’s parents came to town late Thursday, so while we worked on Friday – they shopped. Friday night included steaks at Texas Roadhouse.
Since Ryan had to work for a little bit on Saturday, it gave me some time to do some last minute cleaning and shopping. Once everyone was together we went to the theater and saw Jumanji. (Ryan’s parents had never seen the original, which was crazy to me!)
Trying to get a family picture with Murphy is not the easiest thing to do.
Christmas Eve is when the fun really started. We had everyone under one roof (my parents and brother + Ryan’s parents) and the first of many homecooked Christmas meals.
Ryan’s dad also got us Bean Boozled. It was hilarious and disgusting.
On Christmas, Ryan and I woke up and eased into our morning. His grandparents and uncle came up from Tennessee for the day, so they met us for presents before heading to my parent’s house where we were hosting Christmas lunch.
We had a great spread (which I forgot to take a picture of) and spent hours telling stories and chatting about life.
All in all, it was a great Christmas. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life.
How was your Christmas?!
Did you host or travel?This was our first married Christmas not traveling and it was SO nice.
What was your favorite gift? Ryan got me a super cute necklace that I can’t wait to wear every day.
