Fitness Friday...February 3rd Edition!

Happy Friday y'all! It's been a busy week! And I've been way behind on blogging and I apologize for that!

My new LuLaRoe business is going great! But it is taking up way more time than I thought it would! So blogging has been put on the back burner. Hopefully I can get quicker with things and learn to manage my time more wisely in the next few weeks. But I'm having fun with it and that's what counts! Thanks for your patience!

This past weekend I had my in home launch party for LuLaRoe! I had so much fun! And the sales were quite successful too! I just can't tell y'all how much I love this clothing and this business!!!




In other news....my hubby traded in his truck...and got me THIS!!! 


A new 2017 Toyota Sienna mini van! Yes about a year ago I traded in my van for a Rav 4. I love the Rav 4 but we really missed the space of a van. And now that we have an 80 pound dog that likes to go for rides...it made sense as well lol! So the hubby is driving the Rav 4 and I'm a mini van mom again!

Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had a great week of runs this week! 


  • Friday- 2.1 mile run in 16:56 average pace 8:01
  • Saturday- 2.6 mile run in 20:41 average pace 7:53
  • Sunday- 3.1 mile run in 24:32 average pace 7:53
  • Monday- 2.3 mile run in 18:34 average pace 7:56
  • Tuesday- 2.1 mile run in 16:30 average pace 8:01
  • Wednesday- 2.3 mile run in 19:04 average pace 8:14
  • Thursday- 2.1 mile run in 16:56 average pace 8:01


Today I am heading to New Orleans for the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon! I'm super excited! I LOVE this race!! And I really need a girls weekend too! ;-)

I hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Fitness Friday...January 20th Edition!

Happy Friday y'all! I know my blog has been quiet lately. As most of you know...I have recently started a new business selling LuLaRoe clothing. There is a waiting period from the time you sign up to the time you get your call to become official. I've been so busy getting ready and apologize for the lack of blogging I've been doing.

But I'm super happy to announce....that I got my call last Friday (yes it was Friday the 13th) and am now an official LuLaRoe Fashion Retailer!!!


I went to Costco with my friend Kirstin to buy hangers for all my inventory last weekend! We had so much fun! 


Kirstin is wearing the Julia dress and I'm wearing the Amelia dress! So comfy and cute!

I'll be doing weekly sales so be sure to join my group on Facebook to stay in tune with everything
going on!

And here are all my other Social Media channels for LuLaRoe if you want to follow me there too! I'd appreciate it!!!


I'm super excited because my initial inventory is supposed to arrive this afternoon!!!! It's gonna be a busy weekend of unpacking it all and photographing it all! So fun! 

This week was nice since we had Monday off and only had to work and go to school four days. Don't you wish every weekend was a 3 day weekend??!! 

The boys had school pictures this week and got to be out of uniform. They are pretty handsome in my book!!! 


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I got in all my runs this week of course! No strength training since I've been so busy in the afternoons with LuLaRoe. I need to somehow work that back into my schedule. 


  • Friday- 2.3 mile run in 18:08 average pace 8:00
  • Saturday- 11.1 mile run in 1:36:52 average pace 8:46
  • Sunday- 2.6 mile run in 21:23 average pace 8:06
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 20:59 average pace 7:58
  • Tuesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:18 average pace 8:04
  • Wednesday- 2.1 mile run in 16:35 average pace 8:03
  • Thursday- 2.3 mile run in 18:11 average pace 8:01


So that was my week of runs! I reached day 972 this week! Getting close to 1000 y'all!!!! 

This weekend is taper time! I'll be running 6-8 miles tomorrow. Then next weekend I'll be running Big Beach Half Marathon and the weekend after I'll be running Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans Half Marathon! Gonna be fun! 

I hope you all have a great weekend! It's supposed to rain all weekend here but that's ok because I'll be busy photographing and organizing all the LuLaRoe inventory!!!

Fitness Friday...January 13th Edition!

Happy Friday the 13th y'all! I'm so excited because....it's a 3 day weekend!!! Yay!!!!

We went from super super cold weather to temps in the 70's this week! I will say...the warmer temps are my favorite! This southern girl does NOT like the cold y'all!

Because it was super cold we got Archie a jacket to wear on walks! He LOVES it and looks so cute in it!



Andy also got my Christmas present from the in-laws all hung! My father-in-law built me some shelves for my Starbucks You Are Here Collection Mugs! I LOVE them! But I need more shelves lol! I still have more mugs that aren't displayed lol! But it's a great start!


Since it was warmer this week I wore my LuLaRoe Amelia with my Sarah sweater to school one day! Super cute and comfy!


This week was also honors awards ceremonies at the boys' school. Sawyer didn't make it this time but Hayden made ALL A's!!! SO proud of him! 


And on Thursday afternoon I saw that people with MY sign up date were starting to get their calls from LuLaRoe! I decided to drink out of my Starbuck Magic Kingdom mug that afternoon in hopes that some of the magic would fall on me and LuLaRoe would call! And don't you love my new leggings??!! I'm loving anything paisley right now!


Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had a great week of runs! I hit day 965 of my run streak this week! Due to the extreme cold and possibility of ice I didn't do a long run this weekend. So I've got to get it done this weekend!


  • Friday- 2.6 mile run in 21:23 average pace 8:08
  • Saturday- 2.7 mile run in 21:24 average pace 7:55
  • Sunday- 2.7 mile run in 21:11 average pace 7:48
  • Monday- 2.6 mile run in 21:18 average pace 8:06
  • Tuesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:15 average pace 8:03
  • Wednesday- 2.6 mile run in 21:29 average pace 8:08
  • Thursday- 2.5 mile run in 20:18 average pace 8:01


It was a great week of runs! I froze the first part of the week and wore tons of layers! Then the last part of the week I was back to wearing short sleeves, tanks, and skirts! The love of living on the Gulf Coast!!! 

Like I mentioned above...I have to run a long run this weekend! My goal is 11 miles. 

I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
