Lulu is terrified of thunderstorms. She refuses to leave my side if it's ever storming. I don't hate the cuddles.
Pre- and post-run selfies. Sundays are my rest days right now, so by Monday morning, I am SO ready for a run. I love that about rest days - they really make you appreciate the days you run.
Starting to slowly work on speed. I want to really ease into harder workouts. I want my hammy to stay healthy - not to mention all my other injury prone areas.
More breakfast burritos. Mmmmmmm. I'm loving this meatless sausage we are using. It's delicious. I'll find the brand and share it with you guys!
Jake had to work overnight on Sunday, so he didn't have to go into work until 2PM yesterday (Monday). We got to have a lunch date at Mama Jean's! It was awesome. I even got my all-time favorite salad - the Farmhouse Salad. It's delicious.
I ran what felt like a million errands yesterday, but now I feel so good having gotten so much done. I snacked on this in the afternoon. We both love these, but I hadn't had the lemon before. It was really good.
Jake left his clothes on the bed so he could put them back on after work - I think Lu missed him.
I've been searching for some longer jean shorts and I finally found some! These are from American Eagle, but I got them at Plato's Closet for $7! They're so comfy.
Aren't these pretty?? My Dad made them for us to use at our reception in June. <3
I made this snack right as Jake got home from work. I turned my back for one second and came back to this - a bite missing and Jake nowhere to be found.
Guys, try these cookies!!! We hadn't had them before, but holy cow, they're my new favorite. I added a little cinnamon to the mix, too. So. Dang. Good.
Jake's family was coming over for dinner, so we hung out in the backyard until they came over.
Relaxing and drinks in our backyard - yes, please!
I 100% forgot to take a picture of my plate before I devoured my food. But, Jake grilled a buffalo tri-trip and I picked up some sides from Lucky's. Penny, Jake's momma, brought a delicious salad, which we inhaled. The tri-tip was amazing! I love that Jake is so good at grilling.
Then it was up at 4AM to meet these pretty girls for a humid 8-miler! Super thankful for this group!
I need to start packing today! I can't believe we leave on Thursday...this week is flying by....I mean, I know it's only Tuesday, but time is going by crazy fast. ; )
I write about whatever is going on each day. I want to use this space as a place to document my dissertation and training journeys.
