WA Showers and Birthdays



I intended on working out, but life happens, the end.

Some WA Highlights

The whole purpose of my trip to WA was to be at my sister’s baby shower. But let’s be real, I really wanted to see my parents so I jumped at the chance to visit(we’re throwing her another shower in UT).


Since our family has lived in WA(in the same house) for over 25 years we have a lot of family and friends and they all came out to celebrate. It was so nice to see everyone and my sister felt so loved. My aunt and mom’s best friend did such a wonderful job.

My brother also had a Birthday while we were up there so we made him one of his favorite dinners. It was fun to get together with our family and his inlaws. The best part may or may not have been the Sunday bar his wife created because he doesn’t like cake(I’m not a fan either).  Best. decision. ever.


Just to show you that WA really is rainy 80% of the time.


We were walking up the street to see my Grandpa and his dog in our ridiculous hoods.


More WA highlights to come=)

Are you a cake fan? What’s your favorite ice cream?

Do you get discouraged when you planned on working out and it just doesn’t happen?



About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    Im much more of a brownie/cookie fan than cake- but I still don’t pass it up! And I don’t really eat ice cream that often!

  2. I am a BIG time cake fan!! And to go with the theme…cake batter ice cream is a major favorite of mine! 🙂

  3. I just like the frosting, never been a big cake person but I like the ‘accessories’ of desserts aka sprinkles whipped cream frosting. haha

  4. Mmm cake! I tried to make cake balls the other day, epic fail LOL I love funfetti cake the most!

    I pretty rarely have cake, but the only way I like it is a day old and refrigerated…weird I know. It looks like you’re having such a goo time!!

  6. I love cake-flavored things more than I like cake. Cake flavored ice cream, froyo, and alcohol 😉 My favorite ice cream flavor is cake batter!

  7. I love all desserts but I would never get a cake and I’d probably choose froyo, brownies and cookies over it. I’m actually not a big fan of grocery store cakes. The icing is a little too much for me!

  8. Looks like you’re having a lot of fun!

    I definitely get discouraged when I am not able to work out as planned. But you’re right, life happens! 🙂
