Cabin trip, birthdays, and a new workout


friday-4 miles on TM + resistance bands

saturday- walk at the cabin


This weekend we headed up to Josh’s family’s cabin in Oakley. It was gorgeous weather and a great weekend to enjoy the last bit of fall color. The trees are quickly losing their beautiful leaves.

Friday, before leaving for the cabin I ran a nice slow 4 miles on the TM and it felt like I could run forever. I love taking a break and then when I come back it always feels so good.

After the run, I tried out my resistance bands for the first time. My MIL Lee Ann got them for me for my bday and I love the variety they give my workouts. I tried a few moves to target my arms and I felt the burn. I’ll share more moves with  you as I learn them.

on the way up to the cabin…it’s not a road trip with the Scott’s unless there’s car dancing.

I made these cookies for J and his cousins to decorate at the cabin. My sister Leah made them a week or so ago and they were to die for! They had a lot of fun decorating and eating them ha

After the kiddos went to bed us girls got our Jamberry on. I’ve never done a full manicure before and it took me awhile to do it but I love the result.

Saturday morning we all got up and went on a family walk. It was too pretty out not to. J insisted on bringing that truck with him and did a pretty good job carrying it most the way;)

Then we took ATV rides and the boys didn’t want to stop. Don’t worry Josh ended up putting both boys in front and going very slow.

The cabin is always such a great time. I love spending time with Josh’s family.

Sunday we had church and then I made this chicken Alfredo pizza. I had leftover sauce the other night when I made fettuccine and froze it. Last night I used it as sauce, topped it with mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and chicken seasoned with lemon pepper. I thought it was very tasty and the boys ate it up too.

Later that night we headed to my mom’s for a dessert party for my sister Neeley. Yesterday was her birthday and she loves pumpkin pie. We had pies, cookies, and ice cream=)

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.
