Happenings Lately-projects, running, and life


tuesday- 1 mile warmup + stretching


thursday- 2 miles outside/ 2 miles inside = 4 miles

This week has been crazy busy over here. We have renters moving into our basement VERY soon and we have a lot to get done to get it ready. Luckily, I’ve been able to squeeze in a few workouts here and there. Thursday I went out for a gorgeous run outside but only  1 mile in I needed a bathroom so I sprinted back and finished on my treadmill. Part of pregnancy is having to pee all the time haha.

Since we’ve been trying to finish all these projects we’ve had a lot of late nights or nights where the minute we’re done I just want to go to bed. That meant no time for blogging, so I’m playing a little catch up.  Here’s the highlights from the week.

We put in these doors to separate our dining room and living room. Since we’ll never need a formal dining room we made it into J’s new play room. Now the nursery is empty and ready to be decorated for baby girl.

They play room is perfect! It’s right off the kitchen so now J and his friends can play and I can see them. J has loved playing right by me while I cook or clean on the main floor. Those doors were A LOT more work than I thought. To save money we just had someone install the doors and then we puttied the holes, sanded, painted, took all the white protectors off the glass(harder than you think) and it took days! But it turned out great!

I’ve been snacking on these when I get a sweet tooth. They’re chewy jolly ranchers and I’m loving them.

We got a pretty good snow day this week so J and I shoveled the driveway. Mostly me while J played, but it was great to be outside.

We spent a morning at the Curiosity Museum with friends.

Can’t wait to be done with our basement, then we get to work on the nursery. Have a great weekend!

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.
