Enjoying the weekend. How about you?

Good Morning!
I hope you are having a great weekend.
Enjoying some family time over here; just missing kiddo #1
This guy and his girlfriend before homecoming #2.
Kind of weird not having him around.
Not sure I'm ready for him to be so grown!

Had a little movie night action on Friday.
Apparently my life wasn't complete because I've never seen "Remember the Titans"...
John Brown hind parts and sneaky selfies!
Someone isn't a fan of selfies.

The original plan was to ride along for my sweetie's 20 mile run but chilly, misty weather called for a change.
I can't seem to shake this head cold so I reluctantly dropped him off and headed home for a quick run.
Notice the awesome running gear...
I miss my shorts already! 
Made it a 2 miler and I wasn't alone.
My running partner isn't in the best shape but he did pretty good.
Ok, he did good for about 1.5 and the other half, well...
There was a lot of sniffing and grass watering.
Mikey was a trooper.
And he was pooped!
I'll make him a runner eventually. 

My friends, I hope you are having a good weekend.
We are about to head out on a little run...
It is 31° out.

Have a great day!

Enjoy each moment {Five Things Friday}

A little something new for me!

 Five Things Friday Link Up via Fitting It All In

I love reading all of the 'Five Things Friday' blog posts but have never gotten around to doing one!
I thought today would be a good day.
I think I may be cheating a little bit but that's ok, I'm a rebel like that!
My Five Things are also a Flashback Friday thing.
I may have mentioned once or twice that I got married last Friday.
So here are Five Favorite Flashback moments from last Friday!
This. Man. ♥
This. Moment. ♥

This. Signature. ♥
This. Selfie. ♥
This. Lady. ♥
 My favorite people in the world. No, not all of my favorite but those closest to me.
My husband, my son and my Mom.
I don't do many things in a traditional manner and these pictures make that quite obvious.
It is not in how you do something but in what it means to you.
This ceremony was 30 minutes from the moment we walked through the door to the moment we were back in the Jeep.
30 minutes that will last a lifetime.
Each moment of our lives is an experience that builds upon the next to help us become who we are and who we are meant to be. 
Enjoy each moment or at least be mindful of it's passing.
My friends, I hope you have a great Friday.

More Friday Link Ups!

The blog battle continues!

Oh my gosh, what am I going to do with this blog?!
In an effort to simplify my life a bit, I write up the 'bones' of my blog posts and schedule them to automatically post. Well, that has not been happening which results in a 2-for-1 or 2! Ugh!
I thought I had it sorted out but I guess not.
I apologize for the spamminess of it all!

As always, all kinds of fun stuff going on over here!
My 3-week break from classes has ended and I am back to homework and paper writing.
Technically I am back but it is taking my brain a little longer to get on board than I anticipated.
So we will call this a transition week.

I am still trying to accomplish all of the name change things...
what a job!
So proud of my kiddo...he passed the written portion of his driving test on Wednesday!
Now to complete 50 hours of supervised and the driving test and he will be a licensed driver.
Seriously, where did my baby go?
Back when he didn't need a license to drive!
So proud of him. ♥
Being a single parent is a tough gig...
My heart goes out to all of you doing it all alone, just know you are stronger than you believe and are doing the best that you can with where you are in your life and that is all you can ever ask do your best with what you've got. Your kids (and you!) are doing great! 

Speaking of kids...
Ok, so I have my two fur babies and I do not claim crazy cat lady status or anything like that but I do love these little monsters. This little one is something else!
The yoga mat is clearly hers.
Let me take that back, the yoga mat is hers once I am using it!
She has zero interest in it if it is just out but let me set foot on it...
About 30-40 minutes of yoga around the cat.
Apparently I was disturbing her because she kept giving me dirty looks like I was in her way.
Entitled little princess!
Try to chaturanga with a cat booty going back and forth across your face!
Never a dull moment.
With yoga done, my daily mile at sunrise done and it was to the school to drop off a forgotten wallet, to the store for a tie (homecoming round 2), a quick oil change...
Oh and I have decided that everything in life should have a drive-thru.
10 minutes in and out and a free car wash to boot!
My honey says I am a big spender but well worth it when you have a short attention span and a long to-do list!
I thought a little outfit of the day would be fun!
A little side braid with a little L-O-V-E!
Not too shabby, right?
And note the fat cat sleeping on top of the favorite chair...
There are two identical chairs but this one is somehow comfier as they both fight over the same spot and I spend all kinds of time cleaning cat hair off a white chair...
I hope you have had a super day!
Sorry again for the blog post mess ups.
Make it a great day!

Short & Sweet hump day chat!

Happy Hump Day! 
It is a beautiful day here in Michigan!
A perfect day for a run!
Yes, a run!
I have to admit, this has been the longest year ever and I miss my regular runs.
I am registered for a race this weekend and can't decide if I want to do it or not.
Decisions, decisions...
I did get out there and throw down 2.1 miles and had a 9:39 pace.
I am good with that!
Perfect running weather!
Shorts and a light long sleeved shirt were just right.

If you follow me then you know I can't help but take lots of pictures.
The colors are just amazing right now.
It made for a beautiful run.
Fall is my very favorite season, I love the smell and the sound of the leaves blowing around.
This little leaf got stuck amongst some colorful friends!
And for some reason I am obsessed with the pine needles.
It is a needle year and these guys are everywhere!
I love it, love it all!
I do have to apologize for such a quick post but it is a busy day and I didn't have time to snap any pics after or during yoga this morning.
I feel such a difference in my body now that I have made yoga a regular thing.
I promise we will chat about it some more soon!
Make it a great day!
