A minion, a hot run and a pool workout

Happy Friday!

 Since being here in Chi, all the days feel the same. Sometimes I can't even remember what day it is, because they're all the same! But they're all good for sure.

I know it's hot everywhere right now. I'll never complain about the heat because I'll take it anyday over snow and cold weather. But goodness, it's hot!
 This morning I went out for a 5 mile run, and only made it 2 miles. I had to finish it on the treadmill. I even got started a little earlier (7:30), but it didn't help.

Another beautiful park I found
Let's talk about hair.
As you know I recently cut off 7". Well now I'm wanting to do more.
My hair is very hard to handle. It's super thick and wavy.
A few days ago I was mindlessly talking about how much I loathe my hair, when it hit me; at least I have hair to hate! I had to apologize all over myself to K, for complaining about my hair, when she just lost all of hers.
It was one of those moments you wish you could go back and redo, but ya can't. Of course K is SO sweet, she just laughed and thought it was funny!

I'm thinking about cutting my hair off and wearing wigs too. They're just so much fun! And I can support my niece at the same time...

Kristin had therapy in the pool yesterday, and I got to join her. I love a good pool workout!

Last night was also craft night! I am terribly un-creative, so I had to find some inspiration on Pinterest for my clay pot. My minion still turned out a little creepy. But we had fun!

These boys are the sweetest, most polite boys ever!
Have a wonderful weekend!!

IF I were to cut my hair...blonde or brunette wig?
Have you done a pool workout?


  1. I vote for a RED wig!! ;) I love both of those on you. It took me back a second to see you so blond though. How fun are those wigs!!!
    I like your minion. Just about fun anyways.
    Those boys. Aren't they precious - they're into their crafts.
    Good for you not pushing yourself any further in that heat. That's dangerous heat right now.

  2. I love both of those styles on you! You are so gorgeous! Your niece looks so well in those pics. I hope she is feeling okay x

    1. Thank you, Jess! She's feeling great. Really no side effects at all, which is amazing.

  3. Brunette because I love the waves.

  4. This is a great party that many people have never done before.
