This Weeks Favorites- Family and Treats

Let’s take a look at some Favorites from my week 🙂

Family Time. There’s nothing better than spending time with your family. Whether its for a meal or just to hang out, I love being with my family… even more so now that Kara is here.

PS that stuffed bunny is the dogs, not Kara’s.

The Weather. The weather in Tampa this week has been/is perfect! Looks like I’ll have perfect racing temps for the Gasparilla Half Marathon Sunday 🙂

Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter. Warning. Don’t have an open jar of cookie butter in your car when you’re stuck in traffic… it’s not good for your waistline. It IS however, helpful to keep road rage at bay 😉

Play Dates. I’ve been loving meeting up with my new mom friends to exchange stories and experiences. It’s nice to know you’re not the only one going through some of the random/messy/screaming/tired things that come with having a new baby. Shared tips and advice helps, too!

Dark Chocolate. While waiting in line to return a dress at Ross, I picked up these dark chocolates. I know I included Ross finds last week and I know 20 cents isn’t that much savings, but they were just calling my name. Dark chocolate doesn’t seem to upset Kara at all, so I’ve been using that as my something sweet after meals.

Gasparilla Distance Classic. I love love love this whole weekend! The expo is AWESOME and I heard that Shalane and Meb will be there- Ahhhhh!!!!!! I’ll report back with more from Gaspy weekend next week 🙂

Being a family of three. Not gonna lie, it’s still weird that we are parents. I. Am. A . Mom. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it… it’s just that sometimes it doesn’t seem real. (Kind of like Riley. I still think she’s going to appear at the back door one day.) We tried for so long and now have a kid <3

  1. Oh wow, yes, thank the Lord for Cookie Butter. Trader Joe’s does the best! I’ve thought about trying to make an imitation recipe with the peanuts that we have this week. You just reminded me of that! 🙂

    • Aww man, sorry you don’t love it. They have a chocolate swirl one and one other that I can’t think of. Or you could just get Nutella, lol
