The Weekly Chase #202!

Happy Monday everyone! Today is our Christmas program at my preschool. My students have been practicing so hard for weeks! It's going to be super cute!

Friday night Hayden had his very first school dance!!! I can't believe my first born is getting so big!!! He went with two of his good friends! We kidded him about being a stud since he had two dates lol! They all had a blast!!!




After the dance we took them (along with the younger siblings) to go get ice cream! 



Saturday morning marked the beginning of half marathon training again! I ran 6 miles! Then I had a LuLaRoe Pop Up Party! It was very successful and so much fun! 

Here's a picture of the hangers from the items sold (this doesn't include the leggings that sold)! 


Speaking of LuLaRoe....some of you may have seen this on Facebook and Instagram.....but I have signed up to become a LuLaRoe Consultant!!! I LOVE these clothes so much! If you want to shop with me then please join my VIP group on Facebook! It will take 6-8 weeks for me to get my inventory but I will be doing some giveaways in the group until then! http://www.facebook.com/groups/LuLaRoeMindyBobe 


I also have an Instagram page for LuLaRoe as well! https://www.instagram.com/lularoemindybobe/

Sunday morning I woke up to rain! We desperately needed the rain! And it was fun running in it! It rained ALL day so we enjoyed a lazy day at home!

Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)

Fitness Friday...December 2nd Edition!

Y'all! Can you believe it's December already???? Christmas is going to be here before we know it and I am so NOT ready!!!

I had SUCH a busy week this week! At work we have been practicing our Christmas program every day. Our program is on Monday and it's going to be super cute! The kids have all worked so hard! But it's hard getting 4 year olds to sit still for practice everyday!

The best news this week....Archie passed his C.L.A.S.S. training test and earned his bachelor's degree!!! We had an amazing experience in our training class. The instructor was awesome! I was so nervous about this test...especially because Archie had to perform the skills without treats. But he did AWESOME! So so proud of my sweet pup!


And yes...in case you are wondering...that IS LuLaRoe that I'm wearing! I'm wearing the Irma top and it's so cute! I wore it with black leggings that day (Wednesday) at school! 


Of course I wore more LuLaRoe to school this week too. I wore a Randy on Monday (sorry no pic). I wore leggings on Tuesday!


And I wore leggings and my new Sarah sweater on Thursday! Y'all I LOVE Sarah! So so pretty! 


Thursday night Hayden had his first band concert and Sawyer had his first choir concert! They sounded so amazing! I LOVE that my boys are pursuing music in some way! Music has always been a huge part of my life and I love that they are loving it too!


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I got in all my runs for my streak this week! It was crazy weather though. It went from cool to hot back to cool! I only got in one strength training session this week though. The week has just been so busy and I didn't have time to squeeze another one in. 


  • Friday- 2.6 mile run in 20:46 average pace 7:55
  • Saturday- 3.5 mile run in 27:42 average pace 7:53
  • Sunday- 2.6 mile run in 20:40 average pace 7:52
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 21:09 average pace 8:00, Strength training: BodyPump

  • Tuesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:15 average pace 8:03
  • Wednesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:25 average pace 8:09
  • Thursday- 2.6 mile run in 21:30 average pace 8:09


It was a great week of runs! And BodyPump was great this week but harder since I took off for Thanksgiving. I was pretty sore afterwards.

This weekend I am running 6 miles. Half marathon training is officially starting again! My next half is at the end of January so I gotta get to training!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

The Weekly Chase #201!

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving! I know I sure did! I enjoyed spending lots of quality time with my family! It was a GREAT week and I'm sad it's over!

Today it's back to reality. But....in good news....we only have three weeks until Christmas vacation!!! I can do this!!!!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We spent the night Wednesday night at Andy's sister Katie's house. It was also Archie's first sleepover lol! He slept great that night but never really rested or relaxed during the day. I think he was too anxious and wondering what was going on. Every time we would go outside he would go straight to the car wanting to leave! Hopefully he will get used to going other places especially since it is our Thanksgiving and Easter traditions to spend the night at Katie's house.


We had lots of yummy food! And Archie even got a special Thanksgiving treat...a pig ear...his favorite lol!


Andy and I did our annual Black Friday shopping date...although we got started a little later than normal this year. That's ok though since we didn't have a must on our list! 


Because of not getting his naps....Archie was so exhausted on Friday! Poor doggie!



Friday night we had "Friends-giving" at my friend Kirstin's house. But I failed to take any pictures! I know! What's wrong with me??!! We had a fun night though!

Saturday we headed back out of town to have Thanksgiving with Andy's extended family. Of course I wore some comfy LuLaRoe leggings to travel (and eat) in! 



His family lives out in the country and Archie of course went with us. He had a BLAST getting to explore off leash! We were amazed how well he did and that he would come to us when we called him! He's such a good dog!




It was a great day with family!!!!


Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)

The Weekly Chase #200!

Happy Thanksgiving week y'all!!! I am so thankful to be off of work this entire week! I'm looking forward to spending lots of quality time with my family and fur babies!!!

This weekend I met a turkey during my long run!


One of the farmers down the road from my house made him out of a bale of hay! At Halloween time they had a pumpkin jack 'o' lantern made out of a bale of hay too! So cute! 


I also have to share with y'all my newest pair of Lularoe leggings! These were my unicorn (a print you search and search to find)! I had only seen them with a teal background so I was so excited to see them with a black background! And I was fast enough to get them! The Disney girl in me LOVES these castles!!! 


Saturday we did some shopping! It got really cold this weekend and we discovered that the boys don't have any warm clothes! So we got them some jeans, long sleeve shirts, and jackets!

After shopping Andy just pulled right into Starbucks without me having to ask! He really does love me!!!


Archie stayed snuggled in his bed on Sunday morning when it was so cold! He LOVES his bed!!! 


Andy also decided he wanted to paint the living room this weekend! So we picked a color, went to Lowe's, and he painted! 


Because it was so cold on Sunday morning....I got to wear the new running tights I bought at TJ Max this summer! They are super cute!



Archie also decided he really wanted to go for a car ride after my run Sunday morning. So being the good doggie mommy that I am I took him for a ride around the block. He was one happy doggie after that lol! 


Now it's time for the Weekly Chase! It's a new week and I have new goals to achieve! I hope you will link up your own goals with me too! And feel free to use the badge below in your post too! You can grab the badge HERE! :-)

Fitness Friday...November 18th Edition!

Happy Friday y'all! And...happy we have the next week off for Thanksgiving!!!!! I'm a little excited y'all!!!

I had a great week! It started out a little rough though because Archie started having diarrhea and threw up one night. He had apparently eaten something he shouldn't have. We ended up taking him to the vet and now he is back to normal praise God! I did NOT like seeing my sweet boy not feeling good!

When he first had an upset tummy we cut back on his food serving. He was NOT happy about that lol! Boy LOVES his food!

Sad puppy dog eyes!


Preschool was busy for me this week as we got ready for our Thanksgiving Feast! I got my little class all ready to be Indians! So there was lots of glue, hot glue guns, and painting t-shirts done this week! But we are ready to feast today!!! :-)

I also went on a field trip with my Hayden this week! We went to the Mobile International Festival! We got to learn about different countries and try food from the different countries! It was a neat field trip but super crowded. That made it a little less fun but we survived!




Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I got in all my runs for my run streak as well as my goal of at least 2 strength training sessions! I'm trying to talk the hubby into going to BodyPump tonight and if he agrees then that will be 3 times this week!


  • Friday- 2.6 mile run in 20:31 average pace 7:47
  • Saturday- 2.6 mile run in 20:49 average pace 7:56
  • Sunday- Battleship 12K, 7.46 miles in 1:00:29 average pace 8:08
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 21:23 average pace 8:06, Strength Training: BodyPump

  • Tuesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:08 average pace 8:03
  • Wednesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:10 average pace 8:01, Strength Training: BodyPump

  • Thursday- 2.6 mile run in 20:53 average pace 7:55


So that was my week of fitness! I had some great runs this week! Them temps were in the high 40's and low 50's each morning so that made for some great running weather! And I'm so proud I got in all my strength training this week! I really didn't want to go to class Wednesday afternoon but I went and of course I didn't regret going! 

This weekend I am planning on doing a 5-6 mile run. I'm not in official training mode yet so I'm going to enjoy running what I feel. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
