And you thought I was done with DIY projects. . .

Happy Friday!!

Yesterday I took another rest day. J was up all night again not feeling good, so I spent the morning cleaning and doing laundry. Luckily, throughout the day, he started feeling so much better. His appetite came back, and so did his personality. He was running circles around this zombie mama.

Wednesday’s lethargic train playing. . .

I got a little cat nap and then I got to work on our deck. I didn’t get much done, it’s a tedious process. I used the same Restoluem paint that I used on the fireplaces and outside lamps. Here a little before and after. I’ll have more once the whole deck is finished.

Once Josh and my dad got home(my mom has been in Houston, TX visiting my brother and SIL who just had their 4th baby. After 3 gorgeous girls, they finally got a boy!!!) we had dinner and then the boys went out to do yard work.

Baby Lucas

After 2 rest days, I’m hoping to get a run in and get outside with lil J. Being cooped up in your house is really not fun. How did we do it all winter?

Here’s to hoping no one else get’s the flu!

What are some of your Easter traditions?

anyone wanna come help me paint, I’ll pay you with chocolates;)



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.
