High Five Friday

Fave Five Friday

Is it really Friday already?! This week has flown by…seeing as I thought that yesterday was Wednesday. Well, that means that i am linking up with several bloggers for my Favorite Five Friday! Thank you Angela, KatieHeather, other great bloggers for the Friday Favorites link up!



I just neede a reminder sometimes…

While this weekend was not a PR, it was a lesson in having a good time, finishing a run for fun once your goals are no longer in reach. This was my initial 1st ½ marathon – and it ended up being my 4th of the year!

Someday I will make it to Magnolia Market and buy everything! I love this place and I love Fixer Upper!

Why can’t my trees still look like this?!

@maniacmiler This track looks like it would be the best track run ever!
