Is this real life?

Friday-3 miles on treadmill while watching TV =) 

It was cold, so I wore my long sleeve comfy race shirt inside, maybe one day I’ll venture out in the snow, maybe.


Lets back up to Thursday. J was invited to a Christmas party by his friend Lacey. We were asked to bring toppings and a Christmas book to exchange. He had more fun eating the toppings and gingerbread than decorating it. I’m totally okay with that;) 20131212-142421.jpg 20131212-140626.jpgI was busy stealing all the babies, they’re just too cute! 20131212-142456.jpg All the kids got to open a book, J got a cute elf book. I love having a new book to read to him every night as part of our Christmas countdown. He opened it too quickly for a pic ha 20131212-142409.jpg  How fitting was the party gift?

20131213-205125.jpgFriday after my workout J and I cleaned up the house a bit, then we just got to play all day together. I love days where I don’t have to leave the house when it’s below 20* out.

That night we all went out to Pizza Pie Cafe. Josh and I used to go there all the time, but there wasn’t one by us when we moved. It’s actually the place we ate at before my first half marathon to carb load=)

20131213-205147.jpgJ had fun playing with his water cup ha we ate till we were all passed stuffed and headed home. No pics because it all looked pretty nasty but it was tasty, I promise. I even splurged and had Dr. Pepper. I don’t even know who I am anymore! J got super sticky and wanted another bubble bath. He enjoys them. . . a lot!

Anyone going to a Christmas party?

when you’re out to dinner what do you splurge on?

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. Okay this is probably a stupid question, but when did you change your blog name and look? I love it! It’s super cute! 🙂

    We are having a Christmas/Holiday party at our house with some of our close friends. And then I have one for work! I splurge and get an after dinner coffee or tea haha. I do this at my house as well but I feel so much fancier out in public!:)

  3. I’m not going to any holiday parties until I get back to Chicago, sadly. When I’m out to dinner, I usually splurge on an appetizer of some sort. I don’t really drink anything other than water (or beer), so if I get a craving for something different, I will. Otherwise, I love appetizers or extra bread!

  4. Whenever I go out to dinner I try to eat things I can’t/won’t make. So I rarely order chicken dishes, because I’m most likely to be able to recreate those!
