I can't stop doing my happy dance!!!

I don't even know where to start so I will just spill it...


Obviously i's need to be dotted and t's need to be crossed but we have an accepted offer and suddenly life is going to be very different, very soon.

I feel so relieved & happy that we get to move on. Our house was such a wonderful first step for us. We learned so much but having our roots not rooted anymore is so freeing. I am so happy we can concentrate on Jacob & school and not feel the weight and responsibility of a home for awhile.

I think I will get much more emotional about it as we move closer to the closing but for now we have so much more to think about and plan. ALSO, slowly but surely, I cannot wait to share it all with you guys :)

To make this weekend even more amazing, I had the best freaking race on Saturday!!!

My average pace was by far my best yet and I completely destroyed my goal.

I honestly cannot even tell you where the speed came from. I have not been doing anything special or different. Last year I ran this race in a little under 39 minutes. I peeled 6 minutes off my time!!! I can't even believe it.

It was cold, but not windy and I think the perfect mix of that plus the nice downhill at the end helped me really dig deep and hold on in that last mile. 

The party at the end was awesome. You only had one beer ticket but they let us drink till the beer ran out. All of the volunteers were so nice & we knew a lot more people at the end of the race then we usually do which made it even more fun. 

I only ate a banana and peanut butter before the race. It really has become my go to lately. 

I am trying to think of more details but I can't! I think my brain is on overload... Here are some pictures from the race. I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend too!!! 

DID you run this weekend!?!? Tell me about it.


  1. Congrats on your race!! You really kicked butt girl.

  2. Congrats on selling your house! I can't even imagine how freeing that must feel! I know that sounds backwards but my husband and I bought our house 3 years ago, and now things have changed and we want to move but we're stuck with it for now...
    And more congrats on your race! That's a killer time!

    1. OH GIRL! I seriously hear you about the house. I honestly love our house but I tell all of my friends getting married and such, don't rush!!! It is very limiting to own. It sure has its perks but it holds you down. We weren't settled in our careers and things change and its scary to know you can't just go.

  3. Congrats on selling the house and CONGRATS ON YOUR RUN!!!!!!!!! You are such a bad ass :)
