Friday Favorites: my first one ever!


Thursday- 5 slow miles outside, solo run, 10min pace

Arm workout streak 4/6- only did push ups and dips(my arms are sore!)

I did not feel like running yesterday morning, but our window was open and it was such a beautiful morning. I needed to take advantage, so I did. My legs felt so dead after playing soccer the night before. I had to walk a couple of times and felt pretty defeated. I’m still glad I accomplished the run and I really enjoyed being outside. It was cloudy and not too so I can’t complain.


Our neighborhood has a play group every week and this week all the kids played at my neighbors house. She had a kitty pool set up, sand pit, and bikes to play with . J had a great time playing with everyone even if I did forget his swimsuit, mommy fail.

Friday Favorites

1. I love my bare mineral makeup, but my bank account does not. So in between I have been trying this mousse foundation. I really love it. It’s lightweight, doesn’t have a ‘makeup’ smell, and cheap($7)!

3. Jackson’s hat that he wears everywhere. I love finding out his little ‘things’ that make him who he is. He has such a fun personality andΒ  I can’t help but giggle because I think he looks like the dad from “What About Bob” when he wears the hat, so cute!

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.

    Ah, glad you got to take advantage of the weather outside but unfortunate that your run wasn’t your best. No worries though, like you said, you powered through it and it was great to be outside! Awesome Friday Faves post! πŸ™‚ So endearing that you’re loving all of J’s personality isms! Also, absolutely awesome that your neighborhood has get togethers like that. Awesome.

  2. My Friday favorite this week is that it’s Friday. I’m just glad the weekend is here! I’m heading to the beach for some fun girl time. Can’t wait! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m a Bare Mineral’s girl too, and whenever I run low, I try to stretch out the make-up so I don’t have to buy more. It is a bit pricey. Also, J’s adorable hat is now officially one of my Friday faves too, such a cutie!

  4. This is such a fun post!

    Heck, the fact that you didn’t feel like running, but got yourself out there anyway, is a huge accomplishment in itself! A few walk breaks aren’t bad, especially if you ran your legs a lot yesterday. All movement counts πŸ™‚

    I love the movie “what about bob”. haha- J totally looks like the dad!

  6. I had a WONDERFUL de-stressing afternoon yesterday with my family and that had to be my favorite this week. Don’t you just love watching your J’s personality come out and come to life?? Everybody warned me about the terrible 2’s but I have just LOVED this year with him so far πŸ™‚

  8. Aren’t Friday Favorites fun?? I just started doing my own version of them a couple of weeks ago and I am loving them!

    I use that same mousse foundation. I love it. I am too cheap for any makeup that isn’t sold at Target plus I actually like it.

    I never wore make up besides eye liner and mascara all throughout high school. In college my sisters turned me on to Bare Minerals and I’ve never gone back. I HAVE tried other things but I don’t like it… I prefer to not FEEL the makeup on my face πŸ™‚

  11. He does look like the dad from What About Bob!! Too Funny! My Friday favorite is Burt’s Bees chapstick. It’s basically my everyday favorite. I really am an addict.

    Way to go Shar–you running machine!!

    Love J’s hat. A mini Dr. Leo Marvin! That is hilarious.

  13. What great pics! I love J’s hat (and I also adore the movie What about Bob!)…
    When we used floaties as kids we called them our “muscles.” J is rocking his muscles!
