Woah…another weekend in the books! A busy, hot, relaxing one for sure!
Check out my SKINS DNAmic Compression giveaway from last week!
Morning run and done! While I wish that I could actually get up in the morning throughout the week, I will take what I can get. I almost got rained on a little, but it quickly subsided.

Morning hills workout – complete ———– No one ever said it would be easy…but in the end, it will all be worth it. I really need to get my tail in gear in the morning! My body is ready to get up and going for my long run on the weekend…but during the week? No way! This needs to change… #streakingwiththecoolkids @pinkcupcakegirl #rwrunstreak @runnersworldmag
When I got home, little man wanted to get up and go to the bathroom, and since the hubs was still laying in bed, I got him around…or at least to the bathroom. I started the shower for me and set little man on the potty. The hubs was on little man duty the rest of the morning, but I knew it was going to be interesting since he saw me before going to daycare. After I was ready to get to work, I started throwing together my snacks and lunch for the day. About that time, little man and the hubs came downstairs. I talked little man into going with daddy to daycare and I would see him after work. It took a little begging, but he finally ran off and I was off as well!
A long day at work means that the weekend with no plans will feel pretty nice!
After going outside over my lunch break and realizing how nice the day was, I decided that I was going to take little man to the splash park after work 🙂 I knew he was going to love it!
Once we got home, settling down was not on the little man’s agenda… So after I watered the garden, I refreshed the water in the little pool and we played a little more!
The evening ended with little man getting a bath, and then watching a little TV and just hanging out together, snacking on granola 🙂
As the weekend should ALWAYS start,…with a run! This weekend was a little more special because one of the group runners is getting married today! We got together and made her and her hubs Mr. and Mrs. shirts 🙂 A fun surprise!
After our morning run, I headed to the store for some dog food and a little coffee…I could have waited until I got home for the coffee, but I was really jonesing for a macchiato 🙂
Once returning home, little man was ready to get up and around for the day. Who would blame him?! It was going to be a warm day, but we were going to make the most of it.
I was surfing the FB while we were snacking on breakfast when I saw that Hildebrand Farms was having a “June Dairy Month Celebration” at the farm in Junction City. There were tours of the farm, samples of different dairy products, a corn pit (or 2), a hay bale playing area, and make-your-own ice cream demonstrations. It was something different, and we decided to go!
Since little man stayed awake most of the ride home, we ate a snack and then he was off to his room for a solid nap. Well…and I could use one too.
The rest of the evening was fairly uneventful. I made up a bowl of Sweet Corn Goodness (sweet corn + avocado + red onion + lime juice + tomato + cilantro) for “dinner”…which anything without meat is not a meal for the hubs. I wasn’t home for quite a bit of the day…so I forgot about making food…whoops!
I started the morning a little later than I wanted to…but run & done!

Thank goodness I lived in my new @teamtiux compression socks the past day…sore shins and calves yesterday felt great this morning! While my legs felt good, the humidity kicked my bum…I spent the last mile walking shirtless to try and cool off. Needless to say, my stomach never gets the sun my arms and legs do… #VegaFueled #FuelYourBetter #thefitfork #streakingwiththecoolkids @pinkcupcakegirl #rwrunstreak @runnersworldmag
When I got back, little man was helping the hubs cook breakfast 🙂 Those two “playing” together is one thing that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! They were making scrambled eggs with onions, meat, and cheese for breakfast wraps. Yum! I decided to double team my morning smoothie with my Nuun hydration + raspberries + protein powder = great combo!
We spent most of the day “relaxing” in many forms…
Little man and I “soaked” the tortoise for a little while…he was sure to tell me every time Murtley (or as little man calls him…”MoMo”) pooped…
Most of my day was spent pitting cherries – 12 pounds in fact, probably more…
The hubs had a great idea to take little man to the pool, but as the day went on, it just didn’t happen. I thought about taking him out during the “twilight hours” = cheaper entry fees, but I was just as tired. So we headed outside and played in our pool again. We facetimed with Nana and Papa for a little while to show them how much a fish little man is…he sure loves being in the water!
Once we were ready for bed, we decided to settle in for one more kids show – Super Why, and a little ice cream. These days, little man ALWAYS asks for sprinkles…and I also added some fresh cherries 🙂 A good night cap to the weekend 🙂
