So my recap this week might not look or sound like much but here lately, this is great for me! I've also been birthday party prepping for the last several weeks so needless to say, that's consumed a lot of my time.

The week began with a Monday night dinner with my parents and "Easter Bunny" gifts. Yes, the Easter Bunny still passes for us (even the grown kids) and now there's an overload of chocolate in my house. Yikes.

This basket is about 30 years old!

After dinner, I did my usual PT squats and lunges routine. My right knee has been tweaky lately (not IT Band tweaky) and I realized that the lunges made the pain worse. After backing off of the lunges this week, my knee is feeling a little better. Hopefully it continues to improve. (It honestly feels like runners knee.)

On Tuesday, Brayden and I went out for a 3 mile run and as I mentioned yesterday, we discovered a new route! 

Y'all have no idea how much of a game changer this is for me when running with Brayden. Lately he's started getting "bored" after about 2 miles or so and if we have to loop back in front of our house and pass it again, he's not a happy camper. So, with lots of snacks and no need to loop back in front of our house, we are good to go again!

Another crazy storm also threatened our area on Tuesday night but I think they overshot this time - they predicted all kinds of stuff and nothing happened. I'm sure they just didn't want a repeat of last week. Guess that's how the weather works for you! Better to be safe than sorry, I say! 

We also got a little rained on during our run but it wasn't anything too terrible and passed rather quickly.

On Wednesday, I picked through the Tone It Up Girls YouTube channel and found a workout that I liked and could modify with my tweaky knee.

Thursday was Brayden's birthday and also an opportunity for us to try out our new route. It worked great! Another 3 miler in the books an gorgeous spring (although kind of humid) weather!

After work on Thursday, I also met up with my sister in law for a cup of coffee at PJ's! She was in town for an appointment and it was nice to catch up with her.

This week has also been all about baseball in my house! The Astros revealed their World Series Champions flag as well as their WS rings! I'm loving that baseball is officially back!! 

Tomorrow is our 11 year wedding anniversary and this year we are sharing it with Brayden's Birthday party! I've been so consumed with party planning, I haven't even thought about where to eat or what to do but I know we will end up doing something.
Have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. Sounds like a great week! Enjoy your anniversary

  2. CONGRATS on 11 years - that is a long time! I hope you have a fabulous weekend celebrating

    1. It really is a long time! Yet the years seemed to fly by. Crazy how that happens! Thank you so much!

  3. Have fun celebrating this weekend. I hope things get better with that knee. Glad it isn't IT band related though!

  4. I typically have not had problems with my knees (other than that freakish surgery last summer), but lunges are not easy for me either! My knees kind of turn inward (not sure of the medical term for that), so it's always a challenge to maintain my balance (in a lunge position) without straining them.

    1. Glad I’m not alone! No more lunges here (at least for a while)!

  5. Great job getting in those workouts this week! Happy Anniversary! I hope you have a great weekend.

  6. Happy anniversary! Your little guy is so cute!! I hope he has a great birthday celebration!!

  7. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to Brayden!
