Fun Friday Facts


Thursday- 3 miles with Brittany

Just another beautiful run with a great friend. I totally forgot to take any pics, too caught up in the conversation;)

Fun Friday Facts

1. During our first year of marriage we went on a trip back east with Josh’s family. It was so fun to go to so many historical sites and learn about our (my new) family history. I had never traveled to most of these places(NY, IL, MO) and they were so hot and humid. UT is hot, but it’s very dry. This picture was taken at the hottest place on out trip, in my opinion. We were in MO and I felt like my skin was melting off and then seconds after this photo the biggest thunderstorm rolled in. It was crazy!


2. This is me and my lil sis Bree 2 summers ago. I was pregnant with J and she wasn’t even married. Now she’s married and pregnant and has the same due date as I did with J! How the times have changed…


3. Also while I was pregnant with J we headed up to Jackson Hole, WY with my family. It was freezing here but it was so beautiful. We got to stay in a really nice cabin(my dad’s boss owns it) and have fun with family. No, that’s not where we got Jackson’s name from, but I still regret not getting him a Jackson Hole onsie.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis weekend I have 2 baby showers, can you believe it? I can’t, but it sure is fun to celebrate with them!

What are your weekend plans?

Anyone live in MO? How do you survive in the summer?


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. That pink sweatshirt is a great color for you! 🙂 I have a concert this weekend, but that’s about it! Enjoy the baby shower fun!

  2. Two baby showers! I think I’m going strawberry picking, possibly spending time in my parent’s pool, and relaxing! Have a great weekend!

  3. How fun!

    Yes, when I visited Arizona and New Mexico, I couldn’t believe how dry it was! I mean, I obviously know that it’s the desert, ha, but I had never experienced something like that – so hot in the sun, but nice and cool in the shady. PA is so different!

    No clue what our weekend plans are but I cannot wait for whatever!! Have a great weekend (:

    Yay for a good run with a friend! 🙂 You know that makes me smile!
    Cute travel times! 🙂 I love traveling and wish I could do it more often! Budgets are the worst!
    And don’t even bother coming to Atlanta… the heat and humidity here are insane. Nothing dry at all in these parts! In fact, much like that picture, it can be super sunny and gorgeous and then a storm with flash flood warnings will roll in. Insane.
    I cope with it by stressing about my frizzy and muggy hair conditions, complaining about how it slows my runs down and many pool days. 🙂 The first two aren’t so much coping mechanisms as they are legit complains. Have a wonderful time at the baby showers this weekend!!!

    I can definitely say the one thing I have never missed since moving to Denver is humidity.
    I grew up in Michigan and the lived in NYC for the last decade and you pretty much just sweat from April-October nonstop. haha- it’s gross.

  7. We are having a big birthday dinner with Andy’s family to celebrate all the June birthdays since we have a TON of them, but that’s all we have planned for this weekend…and tonight is PIZZA NIGHT!

  8. I bet Utah is beautiful! I would love to run there one day 🙂 Have a marvelous wknd!!

  9. It’s funny that you’re talking about humidity and you’re planning a trip to FL in the summer…where it is SO HUMID! It’s usually 90% humidity by 6am. BE PREPAREEEED! (a la Scar from Lion King). I’ve got some parties to attend, some volunteering to do, and a baseball game to cheer on this weekend!

  10. I was born and raised in the Midwest. I lived in Iowa my whole life and just recently moved to Nebraska. And you are is HOT and HUMID here during the Summer’s. I suppose that I am just used to it now, but it is certainly never something that I will ever enjoy!

  11. Love that you didn’t take any pictures because you were too caught up in conversation 🙂 Those are the best! I can’t believe we’re at the age where everyone is having babies..but it’s so fun to celebrate! I live in Arkansas, so humidity is a DAILY thing…ICK! Have a good weekend!

  12. 2 baby showers? how fun! those are so much fun to attend

  13. olivetorun says:

    That is a lot of babies… crazy how you two had/have the same due date! Have a blast at your two showers- I hope they don’t make you smell melted candy bars in diapers 🙂

  14. Courtney says:

    I live in IL, so it’s crazy humid here, too! I drink lots of water and dress in layers 🙂

  15. A Jackson Hole onesie would have been hilarious! 🙂
