Strawberry Jam round 2 and Jurassic World


monday- 2 mile walk with Emmalee

tuesday- rest

Monday I got to chat with my friend Emmalee while we walked a nearby trail. Emmalee was my friend throughout college, but moved out of state. Luckily, she visits UT and usually we get to meet up once a year. This year, we took the kids for a walk while we caught up with each other. She’s 22 weeks prego with her 3rd and I’m 33, so fun!

The rest of that morning I did a lot of errands, some yard work, then chilled the rest of the day. As I get bigger, I have a lot more Braxton hick contractions. I’m trying to stay comfortable till at least 37 weeks, ha.

Yesterday I headed up to see Leah so we could make strawberry freezer jam like last year. My sisters all met up and Leah’s SIL too. It was so fun laughing and chatting and of course making soooo much jam. Seriously, we made so. much. jam. I was exhausted.

But now we all have enough jam to last us until we make it again next year.

The kids played outside while we slaved away.

The first thing J did when we got home was make himself a PB&J with fresh jam.

Last night Josh and I went on a date to see Jurassic World. It was an entertaining movie and brought back memories of my childhood. My brother Jordan was babysitting us and let us watch Jurassic Park, I don’t think I slept for a week!

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.

    Joe and I rarely go to movies, but I definitely want to see Jurassic World…just gotta find the time!

  2. haha I never liked Jurassic Park as a kid because it was a “boy movie” that my brother loved. I haven’t seen Jurassic World yet but I’m not opposed. Just not a priority 🙂
    LOVE homemade jam!!! Yum!
