The spring weather finally decided to cooperate this week (somewhat). Although the temps have been cool every morning, it definitely warms up by the afternoon! This kind of weather can stick around as long as it would like!

With that being said, I definitely made sure to take advantage of the weather this week and make my way outside for several runs!

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to run solo (minus the stroller) and it felt great. I've really been working on my running form and I could tell a difference with this run.

My goal was to stay beneath 10 minute miles - mission accomplished!

On Monday, our whole crew joined us for a 3 miler around the neighborhood! The walk went by so fast - it hardly seemed like 3 miles at all!

Our church schedule has also changed up a little bit due to CRAZY construction over here, so I've had the past few Wednesday nights with nothing to do. It's been amazing and definitely helped with getting that extra week day run in!

A 3 mile run is just what I did on Wednesday afternoon and you can see the aftermath of my run in my arms! Those cups were not for me, they were definitely for my little tag along!

A few other non-running happenings took place this week! 

On Saturday, Jason surprised me with a super fun gift! I love it!!

Picture day was also this week and I was super excited to dress my little guy in my favorite outfit in his closet! Hah! Even though I didn't have a girl, I still love to accessorize him (for now, while he lets me)...

Pixie was groomed this week and came home all refreshed and pretty!

Last but not least, we tried out this new place called Louisiana Reaulx. It's basically ice cream that starts out as a liquid, is poured onto a frozen stone, mashed together until it's frozen, then "rolled" up into a cup. There's video on my insta-stories (for now) so head over there to check it out if you're interested in seeing the process - it really is super neat!

That's all for me this week! I plan on running a 6 miler this weekend but it'll probably be with the little dude so we shall see how that goes! Other than that, I hear it's supposed to be another rainy one.

Have a great weekend, y'all! :)

Friday Five Linkup 2.0


Link up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!


  1. What a unique way to serve ice cream. I have never saw this. Your little guy is so cute and stylish!

    1. I'd never seen ice cream served that way either! It was fun to watch them make it all! Thank you! :)

  2. I hope the rain holds off for you! Looks like you got in a great week, and that ice cream looks like a great way to end it! YUM

    1. Thanks, Patrick! That was a pretty neat way to end the week if I do say so myself! :)

  3. I think there is an ice cream place like that opening in our town soon - it looks fascinating, so naturally we will have to try it out!

  4. Those ice cream places seem to be more and more popular. I keep seeing friends in Texas trying it out, and I haven't seen them in Colorado. I want to try it.

    1. Hope they make it to Colorado soon! The ice cream was very tasty! :)

  5. OMG YOUR LITTLE BABY PIXIE!!!! She is so dear!!!!

    1. Aw thank you! That's my little queen B! She's such a mess! Hah!
