Friday excitement

Happy Happy Friday!! Do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend?

We have a few things planned for this weekend that I am excited about. .. and that got me thinking about all the things that are coming up that I am excited about, so I thought I would share what exciting things are coming up!!

New house

We are building a new house! We are currently in the design process. . . which is equal parts stress, fun and exciting. We are moving about a half a mile from where we are now. We love our current house but is it on a busier road, especially with a toddler! We are hoping to break ground in August, and if all goes well, be moving in February-ish!!

Country Fest

7th annual trip to Country Fest!! And this year we have 1st row VIP Gold tickets. Who has two thumbs and is so frickin’ excited –> this girl!!

BBQ

Scott’s family is coming over this weekend for a BBQ on Saturday night to celebrate Way’s birthday/Father’s Day. To help out with the grocery challenge both Way and Ashley are bringing some yummy things to share.

Vegas!!

Every since Scott and I went there last winter, I have been itching to go back! And Laura is going to go with me. There is another medical conference that I will be attending, but I am super excited to go back again in September. Mon Ami Gabi’s French toast–> YES!!

Des Moines Half Marathon

So I’ve decided! I am going to be doing the Des Moines Half Marathon in October. I appreciate all of your supportive comments and encouragement with my decision. I have decided on the half, because every time I thought about marathon training, I just felt overwhelmed. .. and it shouldn’t be like that, it should be exciting. Also, half marathon training isn’t as intense as marathon training and I just feel like I don’t have the time and energy that I would like/need to do that training right now. Someday! But just not now. Smile I like having a goal, so I am looking forward to running the half again this year and getting some redemption from my horrible finish last year. Also, right now Scott is dealing with foot problems, but I am hoping he will get better soon and we can run it together again!

The newest release of BODYPUMP is out! I have been practicing it at home and it is awesome. The tricep track is killer and I love it!! I am enjoying having a regular class at the YMCA again – Monday and Wednesday nights. And I am looking forward to teaching it soon.

Coco Beach

Family vacation planned for December to Coco Beach . I know it is super far away, but I am already excited to take Luke back to the beach. He will be so much older than when we were in Marco Island in February and I think he will be so much more fun to play with in the sand and water.

And this book. . .

I just picked it up from the library this week and have heard good things about it, so I am excited to read it!!

What about you – any exciting plans for the weekend or coming up???

  1. So many fun plans for your family! We are looking forward to a low key w/e after busy work week. You’re going to rock the half! I lobe halfs b/c training is much more manageable & recovery period is much shorter. The full is just hard on the body!!

  4. Building a new house sounds incredibly exciting! Have fun making all the plans and try not to stress too much, I’m sure it will be your dream come true 🙂 As for this weekend, I’m currently doing battle with a cold and would be so happy if the boyfriend took me to have pho tonight. I’ll have to guilt trip him into it haha. Have a lovely weekend!

  7. Congrats on deciding to run the half…and on the eventual new house!! I would love to build my own house one day, so I can only imagine how exciting it must be to start looking into designs and whatnot.

      Yes and Yes! We go every year and love it!! It’s in Cadott, WI, which is a little town just outside of Eau Claire. And Packers and Leinenkugels stuff is everywhere!!

  11. I bought “Eat, Live, Run’s” book right away when it came out and I thought it was really good. If you follow her blog I think you’ll really like it. I hadn’t followed for very long so it gave me a chance to get to know her a little better.
    I’m happy for you about the half choice and for the house! Yay! 🙂
