Can you believe that it is May 1st today? It has officially been a month since Henri and I drove out of California. That blows my mind!
This past month has really been a whirlwind – a cross country road trip, starting a new job, moving into my parents’ house, Easter and my second marathon – so let’s take a quick look at the highlights of the past 30 days!
A Look Back @ April 2014
Favorite Eats – This is a hard one to pick! It is a pretty close tie between our last trip to Cafe Rio in Utah (just because I know it will be a long LONG time before I can have it again)…
… and the BBQ experience in Kansas City. The meat was super smokey and flavorful, the sauce was delicious and those onion rings – heaven!
Favorite News – Finding out that I’m officially running the Chicago Marathon in October – and that my friend, sister, and sister’s boyfriend are all running it too! I know its basically 6 months away but I can’t wait!
Favorite Training Run – Any time that I get to run anywhere besides on roads and sidewalks I know that it is going to be a great run. It’s been pretty rainy around here so the one day I was able to make it out onto the trail by my house was extra special. I am looking forward to many more runs like that this summer!
Favorite Clothing Purchase – I don’t think I’ve taken my Boston Marathon jacket off since I bought it at the expo. Not only is it my favorite colors but if I spend the amount of dough I dropped on that jacket you better believe I’m going to get my money’s worth! (my mom’s rule of thumb is that you have to wear it at least once for every dollar you spent – following that logic you’ll find me rockin’ this bright orange beauty every day until mid-august! 😉 )
Favorite New Product – It took my a loooooooong time to jump on the green smoothie trend but when I was at the grocery store the other day I gave into the impulse to grab a Green Machine juice off the shelf. It was so good that I’m kicking myself now for not trying it sooner.
Favorite Thing About Being Home – I love getting to see my family every day! After 6 years of being so far away and only seeing them a few times a year it is just so amazing to spend a lot of time with them – whether it is for a special occasion like Easter or just doing normal things like going to the grocery store!
A Glance Forward @ May 2014
I can already tell that my favorite thing about May is going to be all the CELEBRATIONS that are coming this month! Henri and I are actually taking a quick trip back to California this weekend for my sister-in-law’s graduation. I’m really looking forward to spending the weekend celebrating her and her accomplishment!
There are also a lot of birthdays in our family that come around in May – my mom, my mother-in-law, Henri, my grandma and lots of aunts! Needless to say, there will be lots of parties and lots of cake eaten this month!
