Weekend Update: Labor Day 2013

I crushed my to-do list this weekend!!

S’mores blizzard – loved the chocolate pieces and it tasted just like a s’more!


Run around the Lake – 14 miles done! Dad biked the whole way and Scott ran the whole way with me!!

Mile 1. . .


Mile 2. ..


Mile 5. . .


Mile 12. . .


Mile 13.9. . .



It went a lot better than I was expecting. It was super nice to have company the whole time. And the weather was perfect – slightly overcast with the sun peeking through every one in a while.

We went on a after dinner boat ride, no adult beverages, but Luke went on his first tube ride with Grandma.


I didn’t drink my latte on the porch, it was too chilly in the mornings, but I did enjoy my special K bar on the porch later in the day. Winking smile 


BODYPUMP 87 –> awesome!!


Presentation for Healthy Living Summit –> it’s going to be really good!! Lots of good tips and suggestions for improving your blog.


Mark your schedules: 9:15am Saturday morning – Blogs in Transition: Embracing your blog.

Research new phones –> umm nope. We don’t plan to switch for a few months and basically I am going to cross my fingers and hope that we can keep the iPhone on the new plan, because how am I going to Instagram? My favorite comment from the last post was. . .and I totally agree. Smile

I made anther batch of Special K bars. . . and we already had enough sweets (ice cream cake) that I didn’t make rice krispie bars or fruit pizza. Scott was especially bummed about the fruit pizza, so I might have to add that to my to-do list for next weekend.

And check out this after run breakfast –> delicious!!


And the best part of the weekend was just hanging out. . .


And we stopped at Scott’s parent’s house for dinner and a play stop on our way home. . .




Hope you had a great weekend too!! What was the best part of your weekend???
