Friday Favs

1. My sister in law and her kids have left, but it was such a fun week playing with them. Wednesday J got to swim with them at my moms while I got my hair done. Later on we headed to my sister’s house for a delicious BBQ and smore’s. I was in heaven with all the food and snuggling that sweet new baby of hers.

2. Chill days. Yesterday we were supposed to go to the water park, but things came up and J asked if we could just have a chill day. I love that he can be totally entertained just doing crafts at home, playing in his sand box, or making himself a throne complete with ‘desks’ make of pillows to hold his snacks. He cracks me up haha

3. Summer salads. I love them! They are so easy to make, and delicious. Last night we had a chicken strawberry salad(one of my all time fav). I marinate the chicken for a few hours in a ziploc bag in the fridge(I use Grill Masters seasoning in a packet, this one was called Zesty Herb) then grill or bake the chicken. Add whatever toppings you want!

4. Pies. I really love pies, but hardly make them because Josh isn’t a huge fan. Last night at church the sweetest lady taught us some tips and tricks to making the best pies with less sugar. I was skeptical, but after tasting her peach and apple pies I was sold!

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.
