Sunday Links and Mother’s Day 5.8.16

Happy Sunday! And of course, Happy Mother’s Day to all you lovely mamas out there. Even fur baby mamas πŸ™‚ We had a beautiful weekend celebrating Mother’s Day with all the moms in our lives. A weekend full of laughter, memories, and food – we have a wonderful family!


Friday night we celebrated by grilling out pretty much anything you can buy at Sendik’s with my stepmom and family. Super relaxing and delicious! And of course I hung out with the Gussa over half the time πŸ˜‰

imageSaturday, we spent the day with my grandparents in Madison and had, as always, one of the best and most filling late lunches πŸ™‚ And our “appetizers” included chocolate covered everything… and the most delicious crab cakes in the world!


Last night we celebrated with my mama, by watching Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (classic!) and we went through boxes and boxes of artwork and school work that my mom kept from us since grade school! Oh my gosh, some of our stuff was so ridiculous and made me really question how I passed 3rd grade. HAHA.

This morning we ran a beautiful 12 miles together, and are OFFICIALLY two weeks away from our big race!! SO excited and slightly a little unsure of what my final time will be… but we have our goals and we have been training so well for this, I’m confident we will both hit our goals and feel amazing (at least emotionally) afterwards! πŸ™‚


Here are some yoga poses I’ve done this week too πŸ™‚






I hope everybody is having a wonderful weekend and enjoying this amazing weather with your mothers! Can’t wait to officially enter into more Spring-like weather! May is a jam-packed month for us, so stay tuned for some sweet updates coming up! πŸ™‚
