Sunday: 5 miles @ 9:00 pace outside

Monday: Rest

Tuesday: 4 miles @ 9:30 pace outside/ Body Pump


A new STUDY has found that just 5-10 minutes of running a day could lower a person’s risk of heart disease and premature death. Soooooo, pass this little tid bit of information on because that’s totally do-able and WELL worth it 🙂

I love anything and everything Pumpkin. Pumpkin in my oatmeal, in my shakes, in soups, in ravioli. My mom always makes me something pumpkin for my birthday. Usually it’s pumpkin cheesecake, but last year, she made pumpkin fudge and it was SO GOOD! All that to say, the Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks. Shockingly, I’m not a huge fan of the PSL. And by that I mean, I would certainly drink one, but don’t go out of my way to get one. This is how I prefer my PSL…

DLites PSLNow that’s what I’m talking about! I was so happy that Pam and I’s ice cream date was on Wednesday last week 🙂

This weekend my mom and I went to my second cousin Jackson’s 1st Birthday Party. He is the cutest little boy and I just love his dimples! They had a burger bar for lunch and of course cake for dessert. He was a champ with his cake and like me, only wanted the frosting. Can’t say I blame him.


It was a nice afternoon with family. My other cousin flew in from Chicago and it was great catching up with her. When she announced that she’s pregnant, my mom noticed I was tearing up and pulled me aside. We went outside for a few minutes, where she helped calm me down and did her motherly thang. I really hope I’m as good of a mom as she is 🙂

As for Labor Day. Well, I labored. I might look happy, but…


It kinda sucked because Todd rarely has days off (this being one of them) and I was working from 9:45AM to 5PM. Oh well. At least Riley girl had company and was able to play with her daddy all day 🙂


Hope you guys have a grrrrrreat week!

  1. I agree with you completely! I can’t get on the PSL craze. I love pumpkin flavored everything (including pumpkin flavored coffee) and pumpkin desserts but PSL – take it or leave it. I must check my local frozen yogurt place to see if they have it coming up! And, cheer up. Hopefully talking with your mom helped (I know convos with my mom always make me feel better too). Thinking of you!

    • Thanks, girl! Talking with my mom certainly helped, always does 🙂 And THANK YOU for your non PSL love, haha. I hope your froyo place carries something pumpkin this season!

  2. Ohhhhh I guess your glad that September has arrived … PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING haha lol 🙂 annnnd I shoulda known you worked around running shoes 🙂 which shop?

    • I can’t wait to get rid of summer… but that won’t be for another few months here, haha. I feel like if I wait until November for pumpkin stuff, it’s already replaced with peppermint!
