May 22nd, 2017

Whew, we got a lot done in my mom and dad’s house yesterday! We got a lot of trash cleaned up and burned so that was good. I was in charge of keeping the fire burning and under control, and I like to think I did s good job! Haha and I ended the day super dirty and tired! 

So yeah, I ended up sleeping super well last night, and woke up feeling pretty good this morning! I had some coffee and toast, then hung out and watched the news with my grandma and uncle (he’s living with my grandma right now). 

Anyway, around 11 am my brother came here in my moms car, so we could run to the bank, get gas, pick up some food, and then head back to my mom and dad’s to get back to work. There wasn’t as much to do today. I burned some more stuff and picked up trash around the yard. 

Around 2 pm, I decided trying to run would be s good idea. I mean, it was almost the hottest part of the day (it was 74 degrees), the sun was out, and there isn’t much shade out on these back country roads. Yeah, great idea…
So, about halfway through I was hot, tired, and crazy thirsty, so I had to text my mom and ask her to bring me Gatorade, which she did. Thank goodness for that! After a few long gupls of that I felt a lot better. I ended up covering 3 miles, which is about half a mile farther than I though I ran, so that was a pleasant surprise. πŸ™‚


After my run, my mom, dad, and I hung out on their front porch for a little bit, then my dad and brother had to get back to working on a truck, but my mom and I didn’t have much else to do so we went back to my grandma’s house for dinner. 

Now I’m full of pot roast and mashed potatoes, and my mom, grandma, and I are probably going to hang out here for the rest of the night. 

Happy Monsay!

Good Bye Cold From Hell, Friday’s Gardening Adventures, And Other Saturday Stuff

As of today I think I can say I am finally over the cold from hell! Yay!!! Not gonna lie, I still have a little bit of a cough, but other than that I feel sooo much better! πŸ™‚

So Luke and I have been incredibly productive this weekend. This week was a short week for him (he gets every other Friday off), so we hardcore took advantage of that.

First thing Friday morning we took the dogs to the park to let them burn off some energy. While we were there we learned just how possessive Finn has become of us. He didn’t want any other dog (besides Lily and Dean of course) to get near us. At one point Luke was petting some dog we didn’t know, so Finn kinda knocked him off of Luke and then sat between his feet and growled anytime the other dog got too close. Haha I do like that he is being super protective of us, but at the same time that’s not exactly something he should be doing at the dog park. I think as he gets older he’ll mellow out a little bit and realize that the other dogs at the park aren’t going to hurt us.

Once we got back from the dog park our gardening adventures began. I started weeding one of the little plots that we already have lettuce and broccoli in, while Luke attempted to start our garden tiller. After about half an hour of trying to start it and lots of cursing and searching on the internet, he declared that the tiller had shot shit and we needed to go rent one. So after a little more internet searching, he found a rental place that had a really good one that we could rent for 3 hours for $40. Not bad. So I had to abandon my weeding so that we could go pick it up.

Luckily the renal place was only 15 minutes from the house so we didn’t end up wasting too much of our time driving home and then back to the rental place with it. It actually only ended up taking Luke a little over an hour to get everything he wanted to till taken care of. That tiller was pretty freaking awesome and I have a feeling we’re going to be renting it again next year.

img_3421

After dropping the tiller back off at the rental place we had some supplies we needed to go buy. First we stopped at Walmart to get some house stuff that we needed. None if it was necessary for our gardening plans, but it was along the way and it made no sense not to stop there first haha. After Walmart we drove almost 40 minutes into Missouri to Johnson Farms, which is where we like to buy our plants. They’re pretty cheap as far as started plants go, non GMO, and locally grown, which is all super awesome! πŸ™‚ They also host the KC pumpkin run which I really really want to do this year! But that has absolutely nothing to do with anything that we did on Friday, so moving on. πŸ˜‰

We ended up getting yellow pear tomato plants, sweet yellow tomato plants, and “the best” tomato plants (the’re just your standard red tomatoes, but that’s what they were called and I thought it was neat), banana pepper plants, watermelon plants, zucchini plants, cucumber plants, mint, and a blueberry bush. The very nice cashier gave us a slight discount on the watermelon plants because they were a little sad looking, so that was nice, and all in all it only cost us about $32. So yeah, that’s why we really like Johnson farm. And Luke told me I should do the KC pumpkin run there this year, so hopefully I’ll be able to! πŸ˜‰

img_3422

So once we had the plants loaded into the car we started making our way to Tractor Supply for fence building materials. On our way there we ended up driving on the running with the cows half marathon course. I did the 5k last year and had a bunch of fun doing it, so when I saw the signs I got super excited haha. Luke asked me why I didn’t do it this year (the race was today, actually) and I’m not sure why I didn’t. I probably should have. Oh well, maybe next year.

Anyway, once we got to Tractor Supply, Luke didn’t like the T-posts that they had there and he wanted to see if we couldn’t get rabbit fence or chicken wire cheaper at Home Depot, so that was our next stop. Turns out that rabbit fence and chicken wire were both cheaper at Tractor Supply, so we didn’t get it at Home Depot. We did, however, get some landscape timbers to use for our fence post. So then we went back to Tractor Supply, decided that rabbit fence would work better for what we wanted to do, bought that, and then finally, 3 hours after we had left, we headed back home and got back to work.

Luke dug the post holes and stuck our “fence posts” in them while I planted everything. After I had gotten all of the plants in the ground I helped hold the rabbit fence in place while he secured it to the fence posts. Luckily that didn’t take too long, and once that was taken care of our garden was pretty much complete!

img_3424

This is why we had to build a temporary fence. The dogs just will not stay out of the garden. Apparently Lily just likes to hang out amount the tomato and pepper plants haha.

So even thought our project is done, there’s still plenty of work that we need to do. That’s the problem with gardening, the work is literally never done. πŸ˜‰ But once the fence was built it was about 8 pm, so we decided to call it a day.

So when I got up this morning, it was very reluctantly because I knew I had a lot to do today and I was sore from all the hard work Luke and I did yesterday. Plus I needed to run. Since I had been sick I hadn’t been able to do much running, so now I need to start slowly getting back into the swing of things. Unfortunately running didn’t exactly sound all that appealing this morning, so I made a little deal with myself. I’d run a mile, finish weeding the garden plot that I had started weeding yesterday, then call it good as far as outdoor activities go for today. So that’s what I did.

Running actually did feel kinda good and it helped work some of the soreness out of my muscles, but I still didn’t feel like going for more than a mile. Still better than nothing though. πŸ™‚

Once that was out of the way I got my weeding done, showered, got a little bit of housework done, then took a nap. Oh man, yesterday really wore me out! 

img_3429

It’s looking pretty good out there! 

Later in the afternoon Luke and I went grocery shopping. We got in and out of Aldi with all of our usual supplies in 18 minutes. We basically ran through the store grabbing what we needed. It was great haha! 

Now we’re hanging out in the back porch, drinking beer, and enjoying the nice weather. 


I hope you’ve had a super Saturday!

Thursday Things

Happy Star Wars Day! I feel pretty darn good today! Probably because I didn’t skip out on my morning cup of coffee haha. I very much have a caffeine problem

Anyway, I made another vlog thing this morning before I went for my run! It’s just another “10 things about me” deal, but go check it out if you haven’t read any of the “10 facts/things/randomness about me” posts that I have floating around here on this blog. Or if you just want to listen to me talk and watch me be super awkward, that’s cool too. πŸ˜‰

https://vid.me/mfI5

Now that I’ve got that out of the way, I can get to the other stuff I want to talk about!

I definitely should have woken up earlier, waited to record that vlog, and gotten out on the road earlier. It was warm and sunny today and, as you may know, that tends to cause problems for me. Especially when the suns been shining for a while and the pavement heats ups and you start getting heat thrown at you from above and below. Luckily that hasn’t beenΒ tooΒ bad yet, but as it gets warmer it will. Not looking forward to that…

I had kinda wanted to get in 4-5 miles today, but I stopped at 3 because I was feeling hot and miserable. Still though, it was a pretty decent run. Aside from getting hot, I don’t have anything to complain about. πŸ™‚ Not gonna lie though, it was kinda nice to see the sun for a change.

img_3304

The Midwest got hit with a CRAZY amount of rain over the past several days. In the St. Louis area a bunch of roads are completely flooded, bridges have been washed away, like, all of my friends from there have flooded basements, a lot of people have lost power, and some people haven’t even been able to get to work because the Mississippi river is so high and the roads are so bad. Luckily it hasn’t been that bad here in Kansas. For the most part everything around here is just wet, muddy, and gross. And we’re not suppose to get anymore rain until next Thursday, so everything around here should start drying out. πŸ™‚

img_3303

Eww not looking forward to those day’s in the 80’s though…

The one bright side to all of the rain is that it’s been great for my peach tree! My little peaches are getting bigger and bigger every day! πŸ™‚ I was a little worried about the rest of my garden though. My little plots of lettuce, broccoli, and brussle sprouts got a little bit flooded. Luckily all of the plants seem like the’re recovering from that now that a good majority of the water in their plots have dried up. Now I really need to pull some weeds and they should be golden! I’ll probably work on that tomorrow though, I plan on getting up earlier and getting more done then. And maybe once my garden plots are all weeded and look nice, I’ll post a little garden update.

img_3312

Anyway, I guess that’s all I’ve got for today. I need to go do some blogilates and then attempt to clean up the house a little bit. I’m not even going to bother with my muddy floors yet though, because the dogs are all filthy. I guess I’ll try to take care of all that stuff tomorrow as well.

April 25th, 2017

Seeing Monday Night Raw live last night was pretty exciting! Not gonna lie though, I’m not all that into wrestling. It’s definitely not my thing, but Luke’s been super into it since he was a little kid, so he had an absolute blast! πŸ™‚ I still had fun though. I got to see quite a bit of Chris Jericho which was neat because he’s totally my favorite wrestler. So like I said, I’m not very into the whole wrestling thing, so my opinion is based solely on the fact that his pants and boots are super sparkly and I love it haha. And his light up jackets and fashionable scarves are pretty neat too. πŸ™‚

So I’m not even going to attempt to recap what all when down with all of that, because I don’t really have that great of an idea haha. Like I said 8 million times, this isn’t really my thing. πŸ˜‰ But anyway, while we were at the Sprint Center I found the section we’ll be sitting in for the Green Day concert in August! They aren’t very good seats, but they’re better than I thought they were going to be, so I’m super happy about that! I seriously cannot wait for August!! I’m so freaking excited that I get to see my all time favorite band for the second time!

img_3135

There is one thing I am a little bit upset about though. Rancid, who are a very close second to Green Day as far as my favorite bands go, is going to be touring with Green Day for a little bit. Of course they wont be with Green Day in the Midwest though, so I won’t get to see Rancid open for Green Day. That would literally be my dream concert…But anyway, the other day I found out that Rancid will be touring with The Dropkick Murphies this summer and they’re playing in Denver (or at least near Denver, I don’t remember exactly) which Luke and I would have totally been able to go to! He even said he would have gladly taken me to that show because that’s two super awesome bands playing together. The only problem is that they’ll be in Denver THE EXACT SAME DAY AS THE GREEN DAY CONCERT!!! And as much as I love Rancid, I am not going to be missing out on Green Day for them. Especially since I’ve already got the Green Day tickets, and honesty I’d rather Green Day anyway. I just really really really love Rancid and it would have been cool to see them both.

Well that’s enough complaining about first world problems for one day. I guess I should talk a little bit about running now. πŸ˜‰

 I was supposed to do an interval workout today, but since I was up kinda late last night and some alcohol was had, I wasn’t feeling all that great. My stomach was cramping a little bit and I was getting really hot, so my intervals turned into an easy 30 minute run. So even though that didn’t exactly go well, I’m glad I got something done this morning. πŸ™‚

img_3133

After my run I showered, watched a little bit of Netflix while I made/ate lunch, did some yoga, and then did a bunch of cleaning. I kinda neglected that yesterday so I had a bunch of dishes and laundry to catch up on, along with dusting, vacuuming, mopping, and all that fun stuff.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Lunch was roasted veggies and some turkey sausage. Yum! 

That pretty much took up a good majority of my day, but by the time Luke got home the house was clean, and dinner was almost ready, so I felt like a total domestic goddess. πŸ˜‰

I’m guessing the rest of our evening is going to be spent in front of the TV (unfortunately that kinda happens a lot on days that Luke works). But tonight I’m going to spend some time on my stationary bike (I moved it into the living room last week πŸ™‚ ), instead of just sitting on the couch the whole time. 

I hope your week is off to a great start! 

~Ashley

Happy Monday!

Good morning! Or afternoon, or evening, or whenever you’re reading this. πŸ˜‰

img_3095

I’ve just got a few little things I want to mention today, so this post is probably going to be short, sweet, and to the point, and I’ll probably go into a little more detail about some of this stuff tomorrow!

So, on Saturday we bought tickets to go see Monday Night Raw, since it’s in Kansas city today. I’m not huge into wrestling or anything, but Luke and his brother are, so obviously they’re super excited. And I kinda am too. It’s something new and different to do, plus going to it will definitely beat sitting and home and watching it on TV!

Since we’re going to that tonight and will probably end up going to bed super late, I had considered running today instead of taking a rest day (which Monday’s typically are for me), so that I wouldn’t have to try to do it tomorrow on limited sleep. But I woke up still feeling a little bit beat up, so I guess I’m not going to be running today after all. Oh well, I got all the dogs walked and therefore got in 8,500 steps by 9:30 this morning, so it’s not like I’m being super lazy or anything. πŸ˜‰

25d64810-9470-47bb-871f-1a0489ef40a8

It’s about 10:15 am now as I type this, and Luke is going to be home from work at around 3:30 pm so we can get ready and then drive to Kansas City, so I’ve still got some time to do some yoga, pick up the house a little bit, eat lunch, and make snacks for the drive to Kansas City and back, so I guess I’m off to go do that! As always, if you’re at all interested in keeping up with my everyday adventures, I’ll be posting a bunch to my Instagram story. 

Happy Monday everyone!

Will Run For Pizza, Mornings Are Hard, A Garden Update, And Other Saturday Stuff

It seems like my rest days are always jam packed with all sorts of activities and things that need to get done, and this Friday was no different. Luke and I finally got Finn into the vet for his last round of puppy shots and got him started on heart worm and flea/tick prevention. Now we just have to wait a few weeks to get his rabies vaccine and then he’ll be good to go until next year!

Luke and I had made bets about how he was going to handle being at the vet’s office, meeting new people, and then getting his shots. For the most part he acted pretty much how we thought he would. He was super excited to meet everyone, the other dogs in the waiting room made him kinda nervous but he handled it well, and he even enjoyed getting on the scale to be weighed (he’s gained 10 pounds since we got him! He was 11 pounds when we brought him home and yesterday at the vet he weighed in at 21 pounds. He’s growing so fast!!). We were both surprised at how well he handled the shots though. He can be a really big baby at home sometimes. Like when he’s chasing the cat and she scratches him, or getting too rough with Lily so she nips at him. The way he cries you’d swear he was dying… But the shots didn’t phase him at all, which was great! And he left the vet’s with a clean bill of health. πŸ™‚

img_2876

After Finn’s appointment Luke and I took all of the dogs to the dog park, dropped them back off and went grocery shopping, went to the DMV which was a whole thing. Luke wanted to renew the tags on his car and his brother’s car first thing in the morning, but his brother was at his girlfriends the night before and didn’t get us his insurance card until 10:30 am. So by then there was a 4 hour wait at the DMV closest to us, so we drove 40 minutes away to the other one that only had a 1 hour 40 minute wait. So while we were waiting for our turn we ate some lunch and then went to Khols because I really really really need some summer clothes. While we we’re there I ment to only get “real” clothes since I have plenty of active wear, but I absolutely needed to get this shirt. I mean, it’s a very accurate statement! And I’m totally going to wear it as a regular shirt anyway. πŸ˜‰

img_2890

After our little shopping adventure we got into the DMV just as our number was called, got all of that taken care of and drove back home. Once we got back Luke mowed the backyard while I did a little bit of weeding in the garden and then played with the dogs. After that it was about 3:30 pm and we had every intention of calling it a day and to spend our evening hanging out and playing video games or whatever. Until we realized we had forgotten to pick up a few things. So we piled back into the car, drove to Walmart and got what we needed, along with a huge water bottle/jug thing that holds 2 liters of water. I’m pretty darn excited about that. And then went back home and around 4:40 pm we called it a day. πŸ™‚

img_2893

Seriously though, grocery day is my favorite day! Plus look how happy and healthy our cart is. πŸ™‚

It was really pretty outside yesterday. I think the high was around 77 degrees which is a little hot for my tastes, but I can admit that partly cloudy, warm, sunny days are kinda nice. But once it starts getting really warm it starts getting really hard for me to sleep. I get so hot so easily and being hot is super uncomfortable for me and that makes it hard to sleep… Which makes mornings really hard. Especially mornings when I try to wake up earlier, like I did today. I got up at 5 am, let the dogs out, then went right back to bed and didn’t get back up until 6:40. And even then I really didn’t want to get up. But I knew every extra second I spent in bed was just another second that the sun spent getting higher in the sky and the hotter the pavement was getting. Yuck. I hate warm weather running.

Luckily I did do a few things last night that made this morning a tiny bit easier. I prepped my coffee maker and had my coffee mug, honey, and spoon all sitting on the counter and ready to go. So I didn’t have to fumble around for all of that. All I had to do was press a button and get my soy milk out of the fridge, so that was really nice. I also laid out my running gear in one place, so I didn’t have to run around all over the house looking for it. So at least things were a little bit easier. But I still didn’t get out on the road until around 8 am because I procrastinated with breakfast. Oh well, baby steps right? Tomorrow I’m totally getting out on the road earlier for my long run.

I totally wish I would have done that today. My run was hot, slow, and slightly miserable. Getting up and out the door about 2 hours earlier probably would have helped a lot but oh well, I got it done and I’m probably better for it. Sometimes I kinda wish I enjoyed the warm weather a little bit more, but I’m a cold weather person through and through and that’s not going to change anytime soon.

img_2904

Also, how pretty is my strawberry plant?! I’ve never seen a strawberry plant with such vibrant pink flowers. From what I’ve seen they’re usually a paler shade of pink. I’m not complaining though, it’s so super pretty. πŸ™‚ It’s got quite a few flowers growing on it (this is the only one pictured because it’s the biggest and prettiest) so I’m hoping I end up with a bunch of berries! Nothing is better than a fresh picked strawberry that’s still warm from the sun!

The rest of my garden is doing pretty well too! My broccoli, brussel sprouts, and lettuce are all coming up and growing! I’ve even been able to weed out some of the weaker plants so I’d say they’re off to a good start! My carrots and onions aren’t doing as well though. Only a few carrot plants have popped up and they haven’t really grown much yet. And I haven’t been able to find any of my onion plants yet. I’m really hoping they’ll catch up eventually, but honestly our soil isn’t really any good for root plants. It’s got too much clay in it. What I really need to do is mix some sand in the plots that I want to grow root plants in, but since I’ve already planted the seeds it’s a little late for that. Maybe next year though.

And oh my gosh you guys! I cannot even begin to describe to you how freaking exited I am about my peach tree!!! It’s covered in all sorts of little, green, baby peaches, and it’s just super green and lush looking in general. It didn’t produce any peaches last year but it did a lot of growing. So I’m hoping this year it stops growing and produces a lot of peaches, and it looks like it just might! But I guess we’ll still have to wait and see what happens with it. πŸ™‚

Tiny little peach!


Haha I guess I got a little bit off track there, but anyways…After my run I enjoyed a nice post run shower Gatorade. Yup. Some people drink shower beer, but I prefer a nice cold Gatorade after a warm weather run. Especially since I tend to get really bad headaches if I don’t drink some kind of electrolyte replacement after warmer run, and the shower just seems like a really good place to do it.

img_2905

I’ve been in a very green mood lately, and I think my shampoo/conditioner, Gatorade, and green instagram snapchat caption proves it. πŸ˜‰

After my shower shenanigans, I gathered up my laptop and giant water bottle so I could do some blogging while hanging out with the dogs in the backyard. Aside from the fact that it was really hard to read my laptop screen in the sun, that was really nice! Our backyard is really green (told you, I’m all about the color green right now) and pretty. Especially since Luke mowed it yesterday. And I don’t care what anyone else says, the Midwest is just a super pretty place in general. Sure we don’t have any big mountains, or red dirt, or ocean views, or anything like that. But we do have beautiful trees (at least until you get into western Kansas), plenty of wooded areas (the woods is my favorite), fields full of lush green grass and beautiful wildflowers, pretty rolling hills all through out Missouri and the part of Kansas I live in, and I even think all the corn and bean fields are pretty in their own way. And don’t even get me started on old farm houses and barns. Those are the best. Oh and all the cows are super neat too.

I realize that I just went on a really weird tangent, but I really do love living in the Midwest.

After hanging outside for a bit I made myself a bacon, egg, and guacamole sandwich. Oh man that was the best thing ever! I mean, you already can’t beat a bacon and egg sandwich, and the guacamole just made it that much better! πŸ™‚ Once that was all shoved into my face-hole I got to work on the mounds and mounds of dirty clothes that were all over my bedroom and bathroom. I’m not entirely sure how just Luke and I create so much laundry, but we totally do haha. While I had the washer and dryer running I got to cleaning the rest of the house, since I was kinda in a cleaning mood after that. I wish I had hardcore cleaning moods more often. My house would be much more tidy if that were the case, but alas, cleaning sucks total ass.

img_2914

Around 4:30 pm we decided to take the dogs to the dog park. Dean is teaching Finn to chase birds so that’s a lot of fun to watch. They just run around the big open feild flushing birds out of the grass. Poor Finn has little legs and can’t quite keep up with Dean yet, but he sure tries! He’s also learning how to stay in one place until released. Lily and Dean are already really good at that, but Finn was sure happy to sit still after running around with Dean for a while. 


Now we’re home and probably just going to hang out for the rest of the evening. 😊

Do you run for pizza? πŸ˜‰

Do you think grocery shopping is fun? 

How was your Saturday? Do anything exciting? 

Thursday Things

Finn slept all night last night! Yay! I also slept a little bit better so that’s nice. πŸ™‚ I got up at 7 am, ate breakfast, had a cup of coffee, and geared up for my run. I was super pumped and ready to go! Unfortunately my upbeat attitude and dreams of a super fun run came crashing down the second my Garmin caught a GPS signal and started running. My legs felt like lead, my hips were on fire, my quads were crazy tight, and I was hot but not really sweating much because I hardly drank any water yesterday because I’m dumb. Good times.

I thought about toughing it out, hell I almost did. But at 1.3 miles I started getting kinda dizzy, so I decided to stop at a 1.5 miles, go home, drink a bunch of water, stretch, foam roll, and eat some damn vegetables.

Processed with Rookie Cam

But first I had to shower because I was kinda sweaty and gross. After I did that I did start working on the hydration thing though. While I was working on that, I went outside to take care of the rabbits and play with the dogs a little bit. But when I went to the rabbit hutch I realized that Rey wasn’t inside anymore. Upon further inspection I found that she had dug her way out. Great. I started frantically searching the yard, hoping that she was still somewhere near by. That’s when I saw her run out from under the shed, see me, then run right back under it again.

I found her, then tried coaxing her out with orange slices and dandelions, but she had probably been out all morning gorging herself on all of the grass and weeds in the backyard, so she wasn’t budging.

img_2854

So, see that cinder block that she’s behind? Yeah I had to dig it out of the ground and then pull it out from under the shed. That wasn’t an easy task, but I got it out of the way and Rey was still just sitting in front of the hole I made, but now with her back to me. So I slowly reached under the shed, carefully positioned my hands over her, and snatched her out of the hole! SUCCESS!! She is now safe and sound in a dog crate in my kitchen, until I figure out what to do with her now. I’m just glad I had found her and got her back safely before something else found her.

img_2857

After the bunny was safe again, I ate some lunch, had another bottle of water, and then took Lily for a walk. For the most part it wasn’t a very eventful walk, but we did find a cat that looks a lot like our Winchester. This guys just a little bit lighter in color than Winchester is. I just thought that was neat haha.

img_2866

After our walk I finally quite procrastinating and got my stretch on. I did a 30 minute yoga video specifically for runners. That was really nice and I felt pretty darn great afterwards. And then I rolled my hamstrings and hips a little bit. I probably should have done my quads too, but I kinda wanted to wait for Luke to get home so he could do it with my roller wand thingy. He can get them so much better and deeper than I can! I feel like its a leverage thing or something.

Processed with Rookie Cam

Anyway, after my little yoga session I may or may not have took a short little nap on the couch with Finn and Lily. I guess we were all tired from the bunny fiasco. That was a kinda stressful situation haha. Anyway after our little nap, I chugged another bottle of water, put on a pair of compression sockes (my heals were hurting a little bit, so I figured that’d be a good idea), turned on the latest episode of the Runner’s World Show and got to cleaning the house. πŸ™‚

img_2869

Around 5 pm Luke got home and announced that we were going out to eat after he got done showering, and that I needed to change out of the running tank top I was wearing. Haha I mean, I do spend about 85% of my time in active wear, but I’m also running really low on tank tops and “nice” shirts. I guess I need to go shopping… Anyway we ended up getting Chinese food and it was pretty good! 

After my failed attempt at running this morning I thought that maybe I’d give it another shot this evening, but now it’s 8 pm and getting a little too dark for that. I guess I can stationary bike or foam roll some more or something. 

I hope you had a happy Thursday!
