The Weekly Chase #137!

We had such a fun weekend!!! It was Sawyer's 8th birthday on Saturday and we celebrated all weekend long!!!

Friday morning we took our "we survived the first week of school" picture!


And here's mine! I had to get a celebratory Starbucks frapp as a reward for surviving my first week back too!


After the boys got home from school, I took Sawyer to gymnastics practice and Hayden and I headed to Target for some birthday present shopping! Fun!

That night was pizza night (since I was running long the next morning). We also watched Donald Trump on TV since he was in Mobile. Several of our friends went to see him but we had better seats in the comfort of our home and on our couch lol!


I also enjoyed some snuggle time with this little guy on his last night as a 7 year old!


Saturday morning Jenny and I ran 9 hilly miles! I'll tell you more about that on Wednesday! When we were finished running we had a mini birthday party in the front yard with the birthday boy! So fun!!!


Then it was a birthday breakfast of cinnamon rolls (birthday boy's choice)!



And then present time!!!


Next our friends Kirstin, Jim, and their daughter Maddy all met us so we could head to the pool! The kids had a blast riding together and were so excited about the day!


We had so much fun at the pool celebrating Sawyer's birthday!!! And Kirstin brought homemade cookies to celebrate too!





We stayed at the pool ALL day! Sawyer said it was the best birthday ever which was music to my ears!

Sunday we went to church in the morning. Then later that afternoon we had more birthday festivities. Andy's parents and sister, her husband, and baby Ronan all came for a birthday dinner. Sawyer chose to eat at Moe's Southwest Grill! He loves Mexican food!


Then it was back home for some cake! He requested a white cake with chocolate frosting! :-)



Birthday tradition...putting frosting on his nose!


This lucky boy got more presents too!


Cullen LOVES all the wrapping paper and gift bags!


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! :-)


Road Runner Girl

Here are my goals from last week!

  • Goal #1: Run every day! Yes! I kept the streak alive! I had to wake up early and run in the dark but I still got that run in!
  • Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Yes!
  • Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. Yes! I did great this week! Going back to school helped me stay on track better with my eating!
  • Goal #4: Survive the back to school routine! Yes! I survived! I was so tired after school but I made it!!!

Here are the goals I'm chasing this week!

Goal #1: Run every day! Gotta get up early and get this done! Not letting my streak go!

Goal #2: Roll, stretch, and ice daily. Gotta keep this up so I can have an injury free racing season! I always get injured in the fall. I'm praying that doesn't happen this year! Really...I'm praying for no injury ever!!!

Goal #3: Maintain my weight by logging my calories. I plan to log everything I eat this week. Staying accountable is what helps me maintain my weight! I worked too hard to gain it back!

Goal #4: Finish my September calendar for work. I send home a calendar of what we will be doing to my parents each month. September is almost here so I've got to get this done. 

That's the plan for this week! I hope you all have a great week!!!

QOTD: What goals are you chasing this week?
