Weekend plans

It's FRIDAY!!! So excited for the weekend. We've got some big plans going on in this neck of the woods.

Well, the Hubs and I are certainly starting off our weekend on quite the exciting foot. 
I swear... we are constantly doing laundry. We just did 2 loads on Tuesday. It's FRIDAY. How? How do we still have laundry to do?? I honestly do not know how we physically managed to only do laundry once a week before we had our own washer and dryer. Mind = baffled.
Hint for washing sweaty workout clothes: add a big splash of white vinegar, a spoonful of baking soda, and Tide with Febreeze while your washer is filling up with water. Then add the sweaty nasty clothes. Sit back and drink a glass of wine. Hang dry. Be amazed. Works wonders every time.
In addition to our exciting laundry filled Friday night, we're also gonna do some grocery shopping AND some house cleaning.
It's funny because it's kinda true. Danger.
Saturday is when the REAL fun starts... first, we have a local, small, family run 5K that we're doing with my in-laws. And, the HUBS is going to RUN!! SOOOO excited! This'll be good for 2 reasons: 1. I get to run with the Hubs! My two favorite things in the world, combined! 2. He'll stop me from running too fast and hurting my knee any more. God knows I can't be trusted to not run faster than planned on my own. Remember?
I'm also SUPER pumped for this 5K because I'm going to try out my new shoes on a longer-than-one-mile run!  
Seriously- I'm WAY too excited about this. Whatev. Don't judge.
Post 5K (and, unshowered-- you're welcome in advance, friends), we're heading to meet some very good friends at a pumpkin patch for our annual friends & fun filled fall day (yes, the day has a name!). CANNOT WAIT. Pumpkins! Cider! Doughnuts! Hay rides! Corn mazes! CAN'T WAIT!!! Seriously-- I'm beyond excited.
Then, Sunday the Hubs and I are celebrating our 1-year wedding anniversary (which is technically on Monday). VERY excited to spend the whole day just us. Vomit, I know. :)
I'm also secretly hoping that if Saturday's 5K goes well I might be able to get in a semi "long" run of like 6ish miles on Sunday morning while the Hubs sleeps in. FINGERS CROSSED!
Hope all you have a fabulous weekend too! I'll leave you with a little Pinterest stolen inspiration...



  1. Congrats on yesterday's mile success! I'm super proud of you for holding back and not blowing that mile out of the water & for not adding more! Such self-control! You know what's funny (besides the e-cards above and how much they relate to my life)? is when I looked at the above pinterest pic, all I could think about was how I wanted to know if shew as going to heel strike or not. I am such a #runnerd! Can't wait to see you guys tomorrow!

  2. How did your race go this morning????
    Happy early anniversary!!! Do you still have your cake topper to celebrate with??? We kept ours, but then our bakery also gave us a new one for our 1 year. It was so yummy to eat.
    I am going to try out an all female cross fit gym in a little bit. I am pretty nervous. Wished I had a friend to go w/me. :/
    After that it was our homecoming football game. Since our team is currently ranked #1 in the nation I am sure that a lot of people will be there. I am so excited!
