Happy Friday y’all!
What a week friends. Something about having a long weekend always messes me up for the rest of the week. Add in needing to go grocery shopping all week (so we’ve been scraping by on what’s in the fridge) and in the end you have one big hot mess that has been my life. But hey, the pool is open and it’s summer time so all in all we’re good!
Let’s take a look at this weeks Friday Favorites!
May Step Results
The results from the May step challenge are officially in
Week 4 total 80,714
Last week total 31,379
May Total 347,539
Daily average 11,210
One of the items on my “big bucket list” (You know, the one that doesn’t actually exist.) has been to run a marathon. I have put 5 half marathons under my belt and have always said that I want to do one, just one full. It isn’t going to be fast, it isn’t going to pretty, but it’s going to be an accomplishment.
Well, it’s not official yet, but I think 2017 might be the year and this might be the race. Honestly the thought of biting this off makes me somewhat nauseous. But even if I can train to run 14-15 miles 😯 , I’d like to think I could make it to 16 or 17 😯 . So even if I walked 5 minutes and ran 10 at a slow pace, the rest wouldn’t be too bad 🙄 .
I’ll keep you in the loop if & when things become more official.
VBS Week 2017
Next week is VBS week and it is always a summer highlight for the girls. This will be our 3rd year of attending and me staying to help. We are all so excited! However, I think Em is happier than anyone since she will officially be in the “big kid” room now. She has been waiting for this for a LONG time.
My favorite part about VBS at this church is that they write all of their own curriculum. You can really tell that they put a lot of thought and work into it.
VBS week makes for quite a bit of chaos, but the memories last for the entire rest of the summer!
Chalk Art Tip
In my recent chalk art post I was given a tip on how to make colored chalk more vibrant. Recently I gave it a try and LOVED the results. Sorry this photo doesn’t exactly do it justice.
The tip is to dip the chalk in water before writing with it. The results are colors twice as vibrant as before. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
