5 things Friday!

Time is just flying by, here at the good ole Ronald McDonald House. Make it slow down!

Here's 5 things from my week...

1. My beautiful sister came to see us. She's the one who lives in Wisconsin, so we don't see her often. But since she's only 2.5 hours away from Chicago, there is no reason not to get together! (We'll be heading her direction next weekend)

How adorable are my nephews! It just kills me that I can't be a part of their daily lives, that they have to be reminded of who I am, but that's just life. I cherish every moment I do get to spend with them.

2. I love love love makeup. I just recently discovered Sephora and Ulta, I don't know why it took me so long. My life will never be the same.
 I had a giftcard to Ulta, and knew I wanted to try out the new contouring kits.
This stuff is awesome. I'm not yet a pro at applying it, but I'm having fun trying. (Thanks to a lot of YouTube videos)

3. Another love of mine...Goodwill. There are so many around here.
My twinnie found these booties for me. They are brand new from Target, and were still tied together with the tag attached. I love finds like this! I can't wait to wear them.

4. My sweet niece is doing really good. So far she really isn't having any side effects at all. (Besides losing her hair) She has days where she is more tired than others, but overall she feels good. #thankyouJesus

One night when we should've been sleeping, we were
playing on Snapchat (katiefictm)

5. As I've mentioned, my running goal this month is 100 miles.
As of today I'm at 95!! Tomorrow I'll run 10, and then possibly 5 more on Sunday. So I'm going to surpass that goal! I'm so excited. I've only ran 100 miles in a month twice, and I've never gone over that.
 It's easy to get all these runs in with the beautiful views around here.

Volunteers come in every night and make dinner for everyone in the house. A few times a week a group comes in to make cookies. These were made by some girl scouts, and one of them left the sweetest card.

That's it for me, have a lovely weekend!!


  1. These are awesome! I love that there are so many volunteers who come in to take care of the families going through treatment. I'm sure that's one less thing for everyone to worry about. What a precious note with the cookies too. :) Way to go on your 100-mile goal!! It'd be difficult not to go out and enjoy that scenery ... might as well run while you're out there. :)

  2. I also love Goodwill! There just aren't very many good ones in my neck of the woods. I always look for a Goodwill when we go on vacation in bigger towns. Your sister in Wisconsin looks so much like you and your twin--y'all could be triplets!

    1. There's not many good ones in KY either. There are so many here, maybe because it's close to Chicago. Anytime a few of my sisters are together people always ask if we're triplets!

  3. I love Goodwill too! So much fun finding bargains! So glad to hear your niece is doing well! And congratulations on the 100 miles.

  4. That note... that is precious!!!!

    I have never been in any 'real' make up stores before either. I dont know if that's a good thing or bad thing :)
