Favorite Things


After a really long week, (I woke up thinking it was Friday on Wednesday) I am excited that the weekend is peeking it’s head around the corner.  Thank goodness!  This Friday is all about Favorites!  Here are some things that really stand out for me.


My friends, Christie and Cindy, both love their Momentum Jewelry bracelets and I’ve adored them since they got them.   They are just super cute and I love that the bracelet part is like your favorite worn tee!  I finally have my own now!  I treated myself to one as a pre “Your 20 miler is going to go awesome!” gift. 2014-09-18 07.10.28


Cara and I are back at it again!  We are headed to Raleigh today to pace the Race 13.1 Raleigh Fall race.  We are super excited!  The weather looks to be near perfect and we have several friends who are coming too!  It’s also a bonus trip because we are staying with my sister and family who live near there.  I get to have some baby niece time with two sweet girls and catch up with my sis and brother-in-law.2014-08-08 10.47.45


I’m a planning Queen!  I love to research and look for places to eat and visit when we head out on our run-cations.  So the first thing I did was jump on Yelp to look for places to eat near packet pickup.  After a little bit of research, I found out that Chuy’s was near there!  Nick, after visiting Texas for work, and Christie have RAVED about it.  My usual pre-run meal is a steak burrito with rice and beans so I’m pretty excited that we will try this place out! 


It was a 2 cup of coffee kind of day on Wednesday!  Usually, I try to have just one cup a day, but I gave in and went for the second cup!  It was worth it! 🙂


Yesterday was a 13 hour day!  I left the house around 7:15am and didn’t return until 8:15pm.  Nick was such an awesome guy!  He stopped and got one of my favorite meals from a local Greek restaurant and it was awesome to have a chicken pita waiting for me when I got home!  It made a long day much better!


What are some of your favorite things that happened this week?! 

Check out my post again and others when you head over to this week’s Friday Five linkup:  Mar on the Run, You Signed Up For What?, and Eat, Pray, Run DC.

Happy Week!

  1. Oh, 2 cups of coffee!! Love those days and what a sweet husband!! So sweet!! I definitely LOVE that bracelet! I just check out Momentum Jewelry and I’m totally buying one!! So cute!! Also, yaay, have a fun time in Raleigh!!! XOXO!!!

  2. Those bracelets are great! I’m loving the weather we are having here in Chicago this week – I love the fall, and generally we don’t see much of it (it goes from 90 to 30 in days, it seems). Even though it’s only September and technically still summer, I’m in love with 50s and 60s we’ve had 🙂 Have a great weekend!!
