Happy Monday, Y’all!
I hope you had a lovely weekend…mine was not too shabby…
I kicked it off with Race for the Cure (here’s me looking super-pumped super-early in the morning that day):
And before you go thinking my outfit was boring…take a look at these super-cute argyle socks:
I set out with the goal to beat my best time for a 5K (which was 33-34 min – I know, I’m pretty awful with running, but working on it!) Well, I did just that…I used my RunKeeper app the whole time and based on that (haven’t seen my official time chip results yet), I ran the race in 30-31 min. I feel proud of myself to have improved my running this year…it’s a big deal to me to shave off even a measly couple of minutes. Anytime I wanted to walk, I was able to mentally push myself forward and keep running. That has always been the hardest part for me. I hope to break into the 20s next time – maybe for the Turkey Day Run? I am still in training for my upcoming half marathon, and this was a great confidence booster.
The rest of Saturday was pretty low-key…I got some housework done, played with my boys – Breckin and I even snuck away for a quick bike ride – and then we all made S’mores around the firepit in the evening.
Oh, but wait – I did go from this:
Oh yes, chocolate-y dark brown hair prevails for fall and winter!
Sunday was a work day – boo. But thankfully my weekend shifts end at 1:30 so the day was not completely wasted. When I got home, we decided to head for an early afternoon dinner at Los Arcos – I was so in need of a margarita…and some quality time with my boys…

Here’s to a happy week! xoxo
