High Five for Friday!

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.
