Enjoying Life one RUN at a Time

Benaiah’s Favorite Seat + My Friday Favorites!


Ahh, Friday, it’s good to be back. I don’t know what it is about Friday’s…Landon and I have been together all week (thank you vacation time from work!) and I’m still excited that it’s Friday. Maybe it’s because the rest of the world is too? I’m hoping to sneak in a little tiny bit of exercise today (more of that later today) and maybe call it a movie night. Yes, that sounds nice. I hope you all have fun Friday plans or at least relaxing ones! 

Since its FriYay, let’s celebrate with a round of weekly favorites! 

Benaiah’s MamaRoo


Even though this bouncer came with a hefty price tag, Landon and I have decided it was totally worth the money (actually most of it was paid with my gift cards!) The MamaRoo moves your baby in motions that are similar to motions that you make and it even has different sound settings (heart, ocean, rain…). 


Since Benaiah is used to all the running he and I did together, he loves swaying and this bouncer has proven to be super helpful when I need two arms again. 😉 

Voice to Text
Speaking of two arms, please don’t  tell me I’m the only one whose recently found/fell in love with voice to text? It is so handy now that I normally only have one arm available. Instead of sitting there typing out texts with one hand (which takes forever and let’s be honest, who has time for that?!)  I can just speak and my phone does it for me. Oh, and it works on emails. Life is great. 😉 

The Last of the Season Fruit


As much as I cannot wait for sweater weather, all.things.pumkin., and warm soups, I’m also savoring the last of the fresh fruit and warm evenings. Current favorite fruit? These raspberries were on point and I probably could have eaten the entire carton.  

Family Walks 


I totally failed and I didn’t snag a picture of us walking as a family yesterday, but I did get a picture afterward. I think Benaiah enjoyed himself 😉 and if felt so great to get out of the house and get some fresh air. 

Favorites from around the Web 

  1. Taralynn made this not only adorable, but delicious looking fruit breakfast pizza and I need to try it ASAP. 
  2. Julie shares her thoughts on fitness and how her approach to fitness has changed over the years.  
  3. DAIRY FREE PUMPKIN SPICED COFFEE CREAMER? Yes please! Amanda nails it again. 

I’m singing off for this morning, check back in later- you bring the coffee and I’ll bring the conversation.
