#TBT & a Fabletics Review & a little message

I always have a lot of hope when we get to Thursdays. For one we are SO close to the weekend ...anddd it is more than acceptable to drink tonight. Need I say more?

I am bringing you a mess of thoughts over here today so hang on...

First I haven't shared a Throw Back Thursday picture in a while so here is a very appropriate one from last year's Lucky Leprechaun Race (my very first race). 

Because of traffic and the madness that surrounds this race, Jacob actually missed my first finish line. SO this is me recreating how I ran AFTER the race for him. I may be leaning over a little dramatically because this is also after a few green beers.

Did I mention that I am running the Lucky Leprechaun again SATURDAY!!! 
That is right people. 
Race recap time. 
My favorite part of blogging :)
Also this year Jake is running it too, which like usual gives me the warm and fuzzies.

moving on......


I am going to make this short and sweet.
Go sign yourself up. Right now.

This is completely not a sponsored post but if I have one piece of advice for the new runners or even new-to-the-gym peeps out there, GOOD WORKOUT CLOTHES make all the difference. 
I have bought some great pieces at JC Penney and Old Navy but now every month I get a few emails reminding me of new merchandise out on this site and it is all so DANG cute. Now that I have a few outfits including this one...

(which was my first and still my favorite) I am building a great collection, that is also great quality. The materials are wonderful. 

Each outfit on the site is two or three pieces for only 50 dollas, NO SHIPPING & I even had to do one exchange because of size and it was the easiest thing in the world!!! 

My absolute favorite part is that if you don't need an outfit or WANT to spend 50 bucks one month, you just skip the month. No penalties. 

My best friend signed up a few months ago too and she is so happy with her stuff &&& to put the cherry on top of it all, your first outfit is only 25$$$$$$$$$$$!! How can you beat that?!

(Also I am really sorry for the lack of selfies that this review promised. Major Fail.)


Lastly, thank you so so so much for all the sweet comments and messages about signing up for my first MARATHON. I am still a little in shock that I made the commitment. I have been listening to some doubtful thoughts since pressing that scary submit button SO it is so nice to come here & feel encouragement from you sweet people. 

I have honestly had the best time following other bloggers' journeys to their goals...whether it be crossfit or a 5K, or a bikini competition (y'all are the really the crazy ones). So I am hoping my journey is something you can enjoy too :)

I know some blogs that are bigger feel a lot of pressure and negativity (which sucks & I wish it would stop) but I honestly have only really felt how awesome women can be and love that for the most part we are all cheering each other on. SO thanks for being so great!


&&& for some reason I thought it was appropriate to end today with a SPICE GIRL reference. Corny as hell but appropriate.



  1. Oh yeay! With a good plan and careful planning you will make this happen! Congrats on signing up for the 26.2!
