Reflections

 A few random thoughts to share. :)

Last week was a crazy, but fun week. We are finally settled into our back to school routine, but I am so glad we will have a little bit of Summer weather left to enjoy. If we weren't at school, we were at the pool. They love summer just as much as I do!


Over the last few weeks the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has been taking over social media by storm, and last week was my turn to be challenged. The Hubs was out of town during my 24hrs, and while I have no doubt that dumping ice cold water  everywhere is right in the Cutes wheel house, I knew getting their effort on camera would be tough. So, we happily donated. :) 
I will say I was shocked to see a few negative comments about the challenge. Personally, I think in a world filled with negativity (especially on social media) it was refreshing to see something positive. Awareness is being raised, donations are being made, children are learning multiple lessons, so what's not to like? Dump away my friends! 

I am in week three of the C25K running program. I've been stuck on this training week for awhile. It's been hard to stay motivated and find consistent training time. Occasionally, we have been getting taste of the cooler Fall air headed our way. It has been nice because I can run outside with the Cutes without us all dying of heat exhaustion. I am hoping Fall will bring my motivation along with it's cooler temps.


And this, my friends, might or might not be the reason I need to kick it up a notch in my C25K program. The Hubs and I recently discovered the Talenti gelato at the grocery store as a splurge purchase, and oh my! Every night after we put the Cutes to bed we race down the stairs to indulge in this icecreamy goodness. One night, while we were reading just how many calories we would have to burn off from our new addiction, we realized it was produced in Marietta, GA (basically our backyard). How fun! (You hear that Mr. Talenti taste test coordinator? I am right here. Close by. Just saying.) 


Speaking of indulgences...last week was the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale. I might have done a little damage. And when I was done with my damage, I called my besties and my sisters and made sure they were in on the fun. I love it. It's like my summer Christmas. :) I was so excited to see by the weekend some of my purchases already started to arrive. Yay!


Thank you for sticking with me through all my random thoughts! :)

Hope everyone has a great week, and check back soon...Carrie Beth and I have some fun things planned over the next few weeks!
