Fitness Friday & Birthday Weekend - 8/26

Well, it's Friday again and officially my birthday weekend! There are so many fun things planned this weekend - I can't wait! First, let me share my workouts for the week..


Currently Training For:

  • Cajun Cup 10K (Lafayette, LA)
  • Cajun Country Half Marathon (Lafayette, LA)
  • Disney's Princess Half Marathon & Glass Slipper Challenge
  • Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon
Saturday - 5 mile run
Sunday - 2 mile walk with Brayden
Monday - Tone It Up Girls Workout
Tuesday - Tone It Up Girls Workout
Wednesday - Rest Day 
Thursday - 2 Mile walk with Brayden
Friday - 3 mile run


On Saturday morning, I went for a 5 mile solo run around my neighborhood. I didn't start until almost 8:30 a.m. and it was HOT. I was going to attempt six miles, but my head was starting to spin from the heat by 9:30 a.m. Thankfully, cooler weather will be here within the next few months and running later on Saturdays when Jason has to work won't be a problem!


Hi turtle friend!


My lungs are what bothered me on Saturday's run, and I definitely had to walk a few times. I'm attributing it all to the heat. :) Hopefully tomorrow's run will be much better!


My friend Kim came over to spend a few hours with Brayden and watch him while I ran. So thankful for her!!


This week was also the first time I took Brayden on a walk without the car seat in his stroller. HE LOVED it and was so excited to see everything around him! The sun was still out on Sunday evening's walk, hence the shades. He ended up falling asleep during the walk!


This week brought more rain but also several pretty sunsets!


On Sunday, we are taking Brayden to his first Astros game! You have no idea how excited I am!! We've also been practicing in the baby carrier and he loves it!


Speaking of my sweet boy, he turned 20 weeks old this past week! He sure is so much fun! I just love it!


Also for the weekend, we have dinner with both my parents and my husband's parents to celebrate. We are also taking family pictures tomorrow morning and uhhhh...our outfits...I have no clue what we are going to wear! Yikes! I love the idea of Brayden wearing a patterned outfit, then Jason and I each wearing a color out of his outfit but omg...it's not as easy as I thought! Ah well, it will all come together!

Have a great weekend!! :)

Early Birthday with Friends

This past weekend, my friends threw me an early birthday party! My birthday is technically this weekend, but this past Saturday worked best for everyone to be together!

Originally, we were going to eat dinner at O'Charleys, but the line was 8 thousand hours long. My mom and dad were keeping my baby, so I needed to get back in a reasonable time. Waiting forever to be seated then waiting on food? Nope...NEXT! 


Instead, we ended up at Rotolos. My birthday dinner with this group of friends was at Rotolos last year as well and it's also where I told them I was pregnant. There were no surprises on this birthday, but we still sat at the same table for old times sake! Hah!


I somehow managed to put on  makeup, too!


They were out of my favorite wrap, so our waitress suggested I try it in pizza form. It was good, but I definitely miss my wrap!


What's a birthday without cake?!


My friends know me all too well! I loved everything!! :)


After dinner, we picked Brayden up from my mom's, then returned to my house to put him to bed and play a few games.


The Game of Things is HILARIOUS! One of my favorite group games to play with friends! Basically, you're given a topic and everyone has to write a random response on a slip of paper. The slips are given to the "reader" and the person to the reader's left has to try and guess which answer belongs to which person. SO FUNNY!


My dogs aren't spoiled or anything...


Group selfie!

We had SO much fun! I always enjoy hanging out with my friends and spending time with them!! :)


As an added bonus, we went to lunch with some out of town friends on Saturday morning. They made Brayden this adorable Mickey quilt and wanted to deliver it to him in person. I know he's going to cherish it for many years to come!

Overall, it was a great day!! :)
