Spartan Winner & Weekend Happenings

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend…I know I did! :0)

I’ll being with the winner of my Spartan Racing Giveaway:
Kimberly from Healthy Strides!

Congrats, Kimberly!

My Friday afternoon began with a bunch of scared puppies. They were scared because we had workers in our kitchen demolishing our countertops! We finally bit the bullet and decided to install granite and backsplash. The project will be complete on Tuesday. For now, my kitchen is in shambles – I have no sink, can’t use the oven, etc.


They got over their fear by clinging to their mommy. :0)

Saturday morning, I ran 6 miles with one of my favorite running buddies, Kelli!


It was hot and we took it slow, but we got it done!


Yay for favorite running friends! :0)

After running, I returned home to prepare for a Baby Shower for a dear friend from high school. I mis-calculated the distance to the shower and thought I was 45 minutes late (whoops)…turns out I was actually 15 minutes early! Score! It so happened that the event time on facebook was an hour off! Ah well – worked in my favor anyway!


Isn’t this the cutest pink elephant cake?


I also attended the dance recital of two of my girls from church. They danced so well and the recital was a real treat!


On Sunday, I stopped by to visit my grandfather and given him his card. Isn’t this the cutest thing, ever? He has to read by way of a magnifying glass with a light on it. He makes me smile! :0)


I visited with my dad/mom on Friday night along with my brother and sister in law for dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. I can’t find a recent picture, so this silly one will have to do for now! We are a bunch of goofballs! :0)

Jason and I spent Sunday afternoon with his family, followed by dinner at Sonic!


I ordered a half price PB&Banana shake and was given the biggest shake I’d ever seen! Even though I can’t use most of my kitchen, my freezer still works – so now I have leftovers! :0)

How was your weekend? Anything exciting? Hope you enjoyed your Father’s Day!

  6. If I had views like that running, i *might* just run. Maybe. ;)

    Yay for new kitchen countertops! I wish we had a backsplash, it wasn't done when we moved in, and I'm too cheap now to do it.

    I would love a milkshake right now... But I couldn't resist not eating it all, so I need to wait until I have husband around to share it, and maybe tomorrow, after I weigh in ;)
