Lettuce Wraps and I Slept In


Wednesday- 4.5 miles 9:06 pace on the treadmill + abs

Well getting up early and feeling awesome lasted a whole day. Yesterday I slept in and had to do my run on the treadmill because I missed my opportunity to run outside. That’s alright, it was great while it lasted. . .


I had my buddy with me and he was awesome. I can’t wait till he can run and he asks to go running with me. (Is that too much to ask?)


A couple highlights from the day

Our dinner was buffalo chicken lettuce wraps, strawberry salad, and watermelon. The perfect summer dinner. I got the idea for the lettuce wraps from Chelsea(wow I guess I just want to be her this week=)) and it got 2 thumbs up from my family!


The hubs and I got to go on a date last night to the Draper Temple and the sunset was gorgeous!


We picked J up and payed my SIL with frozen yogurt=) If you ever wanna entertain your toddler, just give him a sample cup of froyo. It’s free andΒ  J loved it!

Mangoes, Reese's, and gummi bears in chocolate an raspberry froyo

Josh’s DJ company was doing the music for the event so we stopped by for a bit. The boys tried on some football helmets and J was pretty skeptical. We’ll have to get him more comfortable before little league=)


I hope you all had a great Wednesday!

What’s your fav froyo flavor?

What college football team are you rooting for?

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. Don’t get me wrong, I love your blog, but I am ALL about the pictures of J πŸ™‚ He is such a cutie! Favorite froyo flavor is salted caramel or cake batter.

  2. I really love cheesecake flavor or caramel. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a BAD froyo flavor. I’m not a sports fan..so I’m not cheering for anyone πŸ˜€

  3. I’m so plain when it comes to froyo, I go with the original tart flavor and put berries, mochi, and occasionally some chocolate chips. I don’t really root for any college football team. I’m a Buffalo Bills fan, but that doesn’t mean much since they’re consistently awful. It’s SO nice that you guys still make time for date nights!

    That dinner looks fabulous..and the fro-yo! And I root for University of Tennessee (:

  5. Yum yum lettuce wraps! Glad you like them!! I have to tell you that I have not been watching football since the BF has moved…otherwise when he’s in town ESPN is on my TV 24/7 πŸ™‚ I live for fro yo with lots of rainbow sprinkles!!

    You and J take the most adorable pictures together, I can’t get enough! MORE MORE MORE! How old is he? Also, what kind of lettuce did you use for your wraps? I’ve tried using different kinds but mine never look as good as yours did.
    Watermelon is by far the most amazing summer fruit on the planet. Gaaaa now I want some. Fro yo flavor favorite would have to be red velvet or blackberry – depending on my mood. My toppings never waver though – graham cracker crumbles, sprinkles and strawberries. Great, now I want that too! Good thing vacation starts today and I can indulge, right? That’s enough of an excuse. πŸ™‚ Sorry you slept in, but sometimes, those are the best mornings.

    • Oh you are just too sweet! You bet you can indulge on vacation! I’m thinking lots of fro yo and lots of beach time. Remember your sunscreen so your not a lobster like me every time you go in the sun! You’d think I’d learn, but nope!

    Looks like a great day! I am totally craving fro-yo now. I think it’s been over a week since I had some…tragic!

  8. Great run, even if it was the treadmill and not outside. I love that little J man…So sweet πŸ™‚

  9. I LOVE using lettuce in place of tortillas! I just recently made some Asian lentil and mushroom lettuce wraps and they were SO good!

  10. He is such a cutie! And oooh lettuce wraps sound so great right now, and that froyo looks yum too! Fave froyo flavor – Red Mango used to have a cola flavor that was great. It’s gone now tho. 😦

  11. It has been several months since I have had frozen yogurt. Is that a crime? Should I be arrested? I usually get something chocolate-y or cake batter-y and add tons of candy and brownie bits. It always ends up costing me like $5 but it is always worth it πŸ™‚

  12. It is nice to have a treadmill just in case those outside runs don’t work out. I mean sleeping in is sometimes so necessary
