Mother’s Day and Goals

Let’s begin where we left off, oh yes, Saturday. Saturday I got to meet up with these pretty ladies. Seriously, I love making friends through blogging, I’m not sure I know how to do it any other way. . .


Janae, Ashley, Annette

That night, I went to an event with the hubs. He owns a DJ business called All Star Events. It was a surprise party for a lady turning 50! It got pretty crazy. . . for UT anyway=)


phone pic, not the best

Grandma watched J and my SIL sent me this pic. I always know he’s having a good time at Grandma’s house. Not to mention we got back at 10 pm, J was still awake and eating ice cream with Grandpa. Let’s just say, he didn’t want to go home.


Mother’s day we went to my in-laws after church for dinner. My FIL always makes Mother’s day dinner and he never disappoints.


I’m so lucky to have such a wonderful mother. It was fun to celebrate her last week and celebrate my MIL this week. I feel like I won the MIL jackpot. We can always talk, hang out, and laugh together. I love her so much! Seriously, my heart swells when I think about how great my mom and MIL are.

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.

  1. Planting raspberries is awesome! J is such a good little helper! I’m going to try planting strawberries πŸ™‚ I’m working on drinking more water currently too. I dug out a water bottle to take with me to work today.

    I carry my water bottle with me everywhere- that definitely helps so that when I’m bored, I take a few sips!!

  3. Erin says:

    Sometimes I feel like I drink too much water!! I’m always thirsty! And we just planted a bunch of stuff too!

    That is the cutest picture of you guys planting raspberries! I’m jealous, those things are good but they are pricey and therefore a splurge purchase! Good job with your tempo runs last week, I need to work on that this week too! I’m working on breaking 24 minutes in a 5K (race this weekend) and I have a feeling I’ll either just make it or miss it by about 10-15 seconds. We’ll see. πŸ™‚ Happy Mother’s Day to you, lady!

    • Thanks, I need to do more tempo runs this week, but I take it one day at a time. That would be an amazing PR, you can totally do it!!! The Raspberry bushes were only $10 a bush, but buying a carton of fresh raspberries is soooo expensive!

  5. Drinking more water is a daily goal of mine. I have been doing a lot better with it now that I carry a water bottle around with me CONSTANTLY!

  6. So cool you got to hang out with Janae! I love raspberries but they’re so expensive right now that I can’t justify buying them so I stick with strawberries and whatever else is cheap/in season. I’m not training for a race but I do want to get faster/stronger before September because I’m running a 5k that has awesome medals and I want to place πŸ˜‰ That means that I need to get more consistent in my pace and maybe knock a few seconds off of my fastest time!

    Looks like fun! Good job on your goals too!
    I’m training for a crazy trail race in Leadville- training is going ok, but I feel like I’m not going to be ready for this one no matter what i do!

  8. Becky says:

    Your goal to drink more water is such a great goal! We are supposed to have good weather where I am too this week, and I am looking forward to enjoying it!

  9. those strawberries are going to taste so good!
