First #MIMM of 2016, some DIY beauty, and CHECK IT.

I know.  I'm over the "first ___________ of 2016" now.;)

Is it just me, or are Mondays my biggest photo dumps of all?  I have the whole weekend to take pictures, and since I'm in love with everything, I have to post it here.  So sit back, enjoy the snaps and minimal text!

I'll use any excuse to get my parents to come visit us, or in this instance, to come back.  My Mom is either the same way, or she really falls for it.

We have leftovers for dayyyyyyyyyzzzzzzz.  New Year's Eve was dinner with mine parents and Harry's parents, so we had a ton of pasta in the fridge.  We each split two different dishes for lunch Saturday.  It seemed like the right thing to do.  I added a handful of spinach to my plate, because green is pretty. 

Because I go back to work on Monday, I decided to take my Saturday as easy as can be.  Bubble bath?  Yes.  And from he DIY department, Sole Mate Steph made something special for me for Christmas!

It polished my skin like nothing I've ever used in my life.  Also, I may considered eating it at one point -- it smelled reaaaaaaaaaally yummy.  I refrained.

Harry and I were inspired, so we made our own bubble bath, that was so soothing and calming.  It didn't really bubble all that much, which was disappointing to me because I'm all about building bubble castles and whatnot, but it was nice all the same.  This Mason jar was the only container in which we figured DIY bubble bath should be.

Another DIY:  A mask for myself.  Why I posted this picture:  I sat down next to my husband for ten minutes before he figured out that I had it all over my face.

Saturday nights require pizza, so we ordered our fave.

And we finished off the last of these.

Sunday morning:  Yeah.

A four-miler through the park = my longest run for 2016.  HA.:D

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, it was a little slick in some places.

And I'm here to remind you, you...HAPPY WINTER THINGS ARE NOT OVER because Christmas is done!

Football may be mandatory on Sundays, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little distraction on your husband's iPhone.  Belle.<3

The rest of our day
So check this out.  I have my new race schedule up, and believe it or not, I nearly have a race (in some cases, two) every single month.  I am missing one month, and that's December.  Several steps will need to be taken for me to figure out what race that may be...;)  I feel great having a clear path in front of me, and while I'm not tri'ing this year, I have my sights set on some PRs.

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret:  As of December 31st, I didn't have this anywhere near done.  I started and completed it this past Saturday morning.:)  So now, I'm allllllllllllllllllllllll

How's THAT for marvelous?!:)

Back to work after the holidays!  Are you ready?
-Me.  Thanks to BFF Tommie Jo for sending me this SUNDAY MORNING.:P


  1. I love your DIY spa day! Very jealous. I was blessed with a cranky, sick toddler this weekend, so the 'pampering' was in the form of drool, and karate chops to the head. Thanks kid.

  2. That lemon sugar scrub? Probably would have eaten it. And OMG THAT SMORES ICE CREAM WHAT

  3. My youngest son just "couldn't" go to school today. He's having trouble sleeping. Well maybe if he'd go to bed at a decent time...


  4. Those DIY bath products look amazing! I always wanted to do that, but I never find the time!

    1. That's what I thought, too, but these are really easy to make and take no time at all!

  5. Good looking race schedule!! I am doing the North Shore 1/2 Marathon in June as well-- its my favorite race!!

  6. How was your first week back? Now starts the countdown for spring break right?

    You have some fun races on your schedule. For sure I'll see you at Shamrock Shuffle and in Seattle. Let's coordinate so maybe we can stay in same hotel. The Humboldt Park 5K caught my attention. Oh, and I've only done the North Shore Half Marathon but never the 5K. It is a cool course but there is one KILLER hill.
