5 Things Friday!

Happy Friday and happy 2nd day of October!
This is my favorite month of the year. Why? I'm glad you asked. Because it's my birthday month!

Here are 5 things from my week:

1. A couple weeks ago Jeremy and I went to see Lady Antebellum. They were fabulous.
Well, a couple days ago Charles Kelly liked my pic on Instagram! I may have freaked out a little bit.
2. This baby. (Who I nanny for) I adore her. Sometimes I wonder if this is what it feels like to have your own.
Giving kisses already!
 3. Once a week a friend and I walk 5 miles. This rainbow was at the start of our walk yesterday.
 Here's the weird thing about walking, it is so hard for me to 'walk' as exercise! I mean, we walk fast, we're bookin' it. This isn't a leisurely stroll. But it's so hard to hold myself back from running! I always feel more tired after a walk, then a run too. Which makes no sense to me. But hey, calories are being burned, and that's what matters.

4. Just because I haven't posted a pic of one of my twinnie's cakes recently, here ya go. Raspberry Almond Cream something...
Thankfully I ran 16 miles just a few hours before consuming some of this amazingness. 

5. Half marathon #17 tomorrow!! Tammy and I are heading to TN this afternoon, and running the Southern Tennessee Power Classic half marathon in the morning. Honestly, I'm a little scared of this elevation though. 
 Seriously, who makes a course like that! ;)
It's not gonna kill me though, which means it'll just make me stronger.

Have a great weekend, my friends! 


  1. I love Lady Antebellum but haven't been to a concert yet. I loved their Crossroads episode with Stevie Nicks.

  2. Good luck on the race!!!!
    What a sweet face to work with every day

  3. Good luck on the race tomorrow, I have to say I think the course looks awesome (says a girl who loves hills, LOL) Have fun at it!!!
    Also, can I just say OMG that is awesome that he liked your picture, I'd so be telling the world, LOL Love it! Now if Kenny Chesney did that to one of mine, well ya I'd be totally freaking out in amazingness!!!!

  4. Enjoy your half! That is amazing about Kenny Chesney! I would freak out too! And your twinnie can cook! Wow!

    1. Yes, she bakes cakes and other things professionally. I love being her taste tester! :)

  5. That elevation chart, wow. That will deserve some more cake!!!

  6. That is a nerve-wracking elevation chart for sure! I'm sure you did great!
