Bits of lately.

Almost every morning this week Caleb and I have texted each other at work swearing we will go to bed earlier that night so we can finally catch up on sleep, but does it ever actually happen? Nope. Isn't that just life? We're total night owls by nature, and can't help it! Maybe that will change one day.

At least we have an excuse this week...its SPORTS CAMP WEEK! If you've read my blog the last few summers, you know its our church's biggest event we put on for the community (think VBS but sports themed, all outdoors, 100+ volunteers and 300+ kids). Full post on this to come!

My sweet cousin turned 9 last week. It's crazy to me that I only have two first cousins, and they are so much younger than my brother and I. However, that doesn't stop us from hanging out! My family is really close and I love the sweet young girl that Maddie is turning into. She's a total goofball. Last year on her birthday I made her a random chalk crown and took her photo with it, so my Uncle suggested we do the same thing this year! It's amazing how much she's changed, but also how little she has. Regardless, she's stinkin adorable!

Meal prep never tasted so good. Seriously, fresh berries make me so happy.

We hit the pavement last week and I surprisingly wasn't dying of soreness the day after. Yay for small victories (or maybe I just need to be running harder!?)!

We officially decided on a vacation spot AND now my entire family is able to come! Caleb and I are elated to get to go on another vacation with my family - those weeks away with them are so special to us! Hilton Head, we're coming for you! We've missed you ;)

Hope everyone is having an amazing, warm week! What's new in your world?


  1. I really need to start walking/running again. I did so good my first 4 days back in MN the following 5 not so much...
    Sports Camp Week sounds like such a blast!!

  2. Awww, I wish HHI wasn't 3.5 hours away or I'd come stalk (I mean, visit) you. ;-)

  3. The chalk crown (and your cousin!) is adorable!

  4. Aww I love the photos of Maddie with her chalk crowns! What a fun tradition you've started with her :) Hoping you guys get caught up on sleep sometime soon! I feel like the heat of Summer really gets me sleepy by the end of the day, not to mention if it's super busy, it makes it that much worse!

  5. Girlfriend, I am over this heat. I know you've been out in but I want some Fall in my life STAT.

  6. Woohoo for having a vacation booked!! I'm going to the beach with my whole family in 2 weeks and I'm looking forward to just spending time together! And running around with my niece and nephew :)

  7. I went for my first run in a while and I wish I wasn't sore...but it felt good lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
