5 Things Friday

Happy Friday and Happy October! (I know, we're already 3 days in.)
Today I'm linking up with Clare for 5 Things Friday!
1. This Banana Bread. I've made quite a bit of banana bread in my life, but I have now found my new fave recipe. It's so simple too! Seriously delicious.

2. One of my runs this week. I promise I won't talk about every single run I go on. I'm just so happy to be running again, and I can't stop myself from talking about it!

3. I am still unemployed. I could get used to this! Actually, no I couldn't. It sucks not being able to sign up for any races or being able to buy all the cute clothes and shoes.
 I had a few interviews this week, and I'm 99% sure one of them is a sure thing. I'll know early next week, I am hoping this is it! Hopefully I am done with interviews. I think I could do them in my sleep now.

4. One thing I love about Fall is birthdays! As you know, I have a huge family, and 8 out of all 11 of us (including parents) have Fall birthdays. (Mine is in 15 days!! Please stop time!)
We like to do birthdays big in our fam.
Handsome brother
 My gorgeous oldest sis

5. And what I've been looking forward to most this week...
 Visiting this pretty city with this pretty lady! I was in Chicago last year for the marathon and met Michelle then. Over the year we've kept in touch and our friendship has grown and I'm so excited about hanging out with her again this weekend!

Tell me a highlight (or two) from your week!



  1. Love Chicago! I lived there for 10 years. Ive ran the Chicago marathon 3 times, including last year. Have a great time.

    1. I did not know that!! Let's run Chicago next year together. ;)

  2. Can't wait!!!!!!....see you tomorrow!!!!

  3. I get excited for you when I see you ran... so glad your injury has healed up.

    1. I am so glad too. Thanks for sharing in my excitedness. :)

  4. I am just so excited your back to running too!
    I say sit back and relax your time off from work, it's a great time to regroup and make new goals and future plans and actually have the time to think about them and work on them:) Although I do hope you hear back from one of the jobs soon!
    I actually took a 2 year break, I mean I worked a little did a few weddings just to keep the income coming, but I spend the 2 years just traveling and rediscovering myself, best decision I ever made, even if I used up most of my savings, LOL

    1. I think that's awesome that you took a break and were able to do all of those things. I can't imagine how refreshed you must've felt after that! I'm sure using that savings was so worth it!

  5. um you had me at banana bread. YUM.

  6. I've been in Hilton Head, SC this week, and have really enjoyed running on the beach! So glad you are back to running! I'm anxious to try the banana bread recipe; thanks for posting!

  7. You can talk about all your runs. We are happy for you too.
