It's Friday folks! I am so, so glad for weekends. Here's what happened this week:
1| My brother Dalton and my mom's birthdays were this week! I found this picture of Dalton and I when we were kids that is HIlarious.
2| Two hard tests down this week. It feels amazing to finish a test that you have been studying for and then be able to go home and forget about studying (for about 5 minutes, ha). If my life sounds like it is boring and filled with tests, well... it is.
3| Played Settlers of Catan with my brother and a couple friends. We made this new recipe which turned out to be delicious! Cheesy, barbeque-y goodness. It was so easy and you make it ALL in ONE pan. How's that for easy clean-up?!
4| Daniel and I had a little "date" in which we cleaned our room (again, so exciting) and planned our meals for the week. I'm not sure how much he loved this idea but I thought it was fun to do our normal stuff together. That way we both get to pick what we are eating (and I don't have to do the vacuuming).
5| I finally ran 10 miles! To some of you, this may sound like a lot. To some of you, it may sound like very little. To me, it is a LOT. Next week I am running my third half marathon and I am glad to have completed my 10 mile run (the last long run in my training program). For some reason, I have had an extra hard time with long runs this time around. I have been trying not to get discouraged that my time has significantly slowed since my last half marathon. Oh well! I'm doing my best.
|Yes, my water bottle and shoes match. I didn't do it on purpose but it's kind of awesome.|
