Life Lately

I’ve been a little MIA on the blog lately, except for my weekly marathon training updates. I went back to work a few weeks ago and it has kept me super busy. Luckily I’ve made up for it on the weekends. They have been jam-packed with fun, friends, family, running, and some relaxation too… just the way I like it!

Here’s a little recap of life lately…

August 9-11. Kevin and I had a blast running the ROC Race on Saturday. Afterwards we spent the day with my good friend Ashley from college and her new fiance. She asked me to be a bridesmaid and I excitedly and happily said YES! The next day I had lunch with another college friend. It felt good to catch up with both of them.

August 16-18. We had dinner with some good friends from our Bradley Method childbirth classes on Friday night. Then on Sunday I ran and PRed at the Hartwood 10 Miler. After that we attended a charity beer pong tournament that Kevin set up to benefit our 13 year old niece Jasmine. She has a condition called Aniridia, which causes her vision to deteriorate. The event raised a good amount of money to go towards surgery to get iris implants so that she can see well again.

August 23-25. I spent the weekend with my cousin Jed and his two girls who were visiting all the way from Oregon. They stayed with us for a couple days before heading into D.C. to stay there. I only get to see them once a year or so, so it was awesome to spend some time with them. We went to the Civil War Anniversary in Manassas which ended up being very interesting and fun!

August 30 – September 1. Labor Day Weekend! We took a trip to Philadelphia to see my family and have Kevin’s 1 year photos taken (more on these later!). We spent Saturday doing the tourist thing in Philly with my cousin and his girls who took a day trip up from D.C. That night we hung out with my friends from home and my sister, and then on Sunday we had Kevin’s photo shoot, which was a big success!

Sugar coma.

Sugar coma… fell asleep at dinner!

September 6-8. Kevin’s dad came to stay with us for a few days. On Saturday morning I had an amazing long run with my OBX Marathon training buddy Amanda. Then Kevin and I went to a BBQ at my friend’s house and got to spend some time with some of my Penn State girls and their husbands. On Sunday (today) Kevin and his dad went up to Pittsburgh to see the Steelers play their opening game, while I went to a friend from school’s Thirty One party and then a baby shower. It was a fun “mommy and baby” day out. I am really enjoying the age that baby K is right now, he is SO much fun!

Pointing and waving at everything in sight lately!

So much happening lately! And it’s not slowing down any time soon. Somehow my sweet little baby boy is turning ONE on Thursday! His party is next Saturday which means we have a lot of work to do and a lot more visitors to see. Even though life is busier than ever and things like cleaning my house and doing laundry get pushed to the side sometimes, it has been a lot of fun and I wouldn’t trade the memories we have been making for anything. Although I did ask Kevin for a cleaning person for my birthday in October… 🙂

Until next time, whenever that may be!
