Hope your weekend was as fabulous as mine was! This will be a short and sweet post because this girl has got to get to bed!
We spent the beautiful warm weekend in Dallas, TX with my husband’s side of the family for our niece’s 3rd birthday party. While we were down there, we were also able to see our nephew’s first soccer game, and get lots of baby lovin’ in!
Of course the weekend wouldn’t be complete without a run, so Saturday morning my husband and I took a quick 20 minute run around the neighborhood. I’m slowly but surely starting to feel like I have my strength back from being sick, so getting out and stretching my legs felt AMAZING. It’s been killing me that I haven’t been able to exert much energy lately, but I know it’s for the best and the rest is much needed. I’m hoping to get in a few short runs after work this week and work my way back up to where I was before the Bronchitis hit two weeks ago! Such a bummer, but I’m 99% positive it was God’s way of saying, “SLOW DOWN!” Ok, ok, I get it.
Running with the hubs makes my heart so happy! We don’t run TOGETHER often, so it’s always a treat when I can make him come with me! And actually, this was HIS idea, so that worked out nicely! We honestly probably only squeezed in two miles, if that, but exercise is exercise in my book, especially when I’m trying really hard not to over do it. I don’t have a race lined up until a 10k in May, so April will be a recovery month!
I always like to make it a point to do at least one active thing while we’re traveling or “on vacation” because I hate to get out of the habit and/or feel like I can’t eat a few extra treats while I’m there! And it’s a good way to really experience where I am, and get some fresh air! Plus, it always boosts my energy, puts me in a good mood, and makes me feel productive. Win-win-win.
I’ll leave you with a few snapshots of the party! The theme was “fairies” and my sister-in-law did such a great job putting it all together! How cute were all of her decorations?! For snacks she had Chick-Fil-A nuggets, cupcakes, banana chips, pretzels, and gummy worms. You know, typical fairy and gnome food!
And birthday girl Layla, she’s a doll!
There were wings for all of the little girls to wear. Too cute!
That’s my other niece, Maggie. Stylin’ in her shades.
Proud big brother, Rhett!

So thankful to be able to celebrate these special times!
How was your weekend? Do you make it a point to exercise when you travel? Been to any kids birthdays lately?
