boating is better than lifting weights

Happy 1st of September(my Bday is officially in less than a week!!) I hope most of you are still enjoying your long weekend today. We definitely have had a great weekend filled with a lot of family and I wouldn’t ask for it any other way. Today I’m hoping to scope out some Labor Day sales but enough about that, let’s talk about the weekend.

Friday night, I posted a pic on Instagram stating it was date night, but I was mistaken. How could I forget football season!? So, I actually got to stay in my grubby clothes all night, and get In N Out(it was so so good). That also means I won’t see my husband for a few months…Luckily, Josh and J can bond over that.

I on the other hand, was bonding with my sister and mom while painting. My mom was brave enough to tackle her china hutch and dining room chairs. It was a large project and took 2 full days! It turned out better than expected, but you know me and white paint, I love it!

Saturday my sister decided to invite all of us(me, my 2 other sisters, and all our families) onto her boat. Fortunately, we were all able to come even with short notice. It was so fun to have all the cousins play and  get to go tubing. I LOVE tubing, but since we didn’t go to Lake Powell this year we haven’t been tubing or boating at all! I’ve got some war wounds and super sore muscles, but it was totally worth it. Thanks again Neeley!

This was Mason’s face the whole time!

Sunday my BIL Jared gave a talk in church(it’s called his homecoming talk) since he’s been home from his mission. We all went and heard him give his talk, then had a big dinner for family and friends. J loves feeding the horses with Jared and finding bugs with him ha

Then I begged my boys to take a family pic with me(Josh hates pictures). This is the best one I got, I’ll take it!

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.
