Park Fun/Sickness/Nanny!

 I ran only twice last week, because I was so busy, but I did have one of my better runs on Thursday!
I only had time to run 2 miles, and I knew they had to be fast! I had a friend coming over later that morning and the rest of my day was packed! I headed out by myself while my awesome hubby watched Sophie! I do love running with my new BOB, but when I get the chance to go solos, I almost always take it! It showed me how fast I could really go! I'm doing the Jeff Galloway method right now and just changing up me intervals each time to find the right one for me. For this 2 mile run, I did a 1 minute run, 1 minute walk interval. I would run as fast as I could for that one running minute. I really like it! I've also tried 30 sec/30 sec, which I don't seem to like so much. I took Sophie to park last week and did a 3 mile run at a 3min run/2min walk and I liked that one too! It was much more tiring, however. I wouldn't have been able to keep it up as long. So I may stick with 1 min/1min for now.

I am LOVING the cooler weather here in Texas!

I think Fall is finally making it's way here! :)
This week is back in the upper 90's, but it looks like the 80's will be the high next week!
I see a lot more visits to the park with Sophie in our future!!! :)

Here we are at the park after our 3 mile run! Sophie was pooped! haha :)

And here is Sophie enjoying the swings!!

This past weekend I haven't been feeling very well.
I guess I have what they call an "end of summer cold". 
I don't like being sick. Especially when I still have to take care of my little one.
I do have to say, however, that she is such a good baby girl!
I spent most of Sunday laying on my living room floor sleeping on and off. I could barely hold my eyes open. Sophie took 2 naps with me and then she played while I was in and out the rest of the day. I was so impressed at how good she was! When I did finally wake up, nothing had been destroyed, and she was a happy baby! This was great considering she has recently discovered toilet paper...and counters...Nothing is safe anymore! haha! But she was so good while I wasn't feeling well. I am one proud momma. :)

This past Friday I started my new job as a nanny!
I will be taking care of a 3 month old and a 5 yr old (when she's not in school). They are 2 of the cutest little girls! And the best part is, I get to bring Sophie along with me! It's a win win situation! I know Sophie will definitely benefit from being around other children! And the 5 yr old gets to see how her little sister will be next year! :) I'm excited to do some fun Pinterest things with Sophie and the 5 yr old this Fall!

And don't forget about my upcoming 5K Foam Fest~Dallas Giveaway!!!
I will be posting it on October 1st! :)

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :) I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love... My BOB Revolution SE ! I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here ! :) My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces ! They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes! I love their moto! Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray. In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver . Th

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful! We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do! It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option. We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :) And that's not all of the big news! I
