Back From Vacation

Hey guys! I guess you could say that I unplugged this week;) We just got back from Boston late last night and it was an awesome trip.

So, the Needtobreathe concert was AWESOME and the Boston House of Blues is a pretty cool venue. I got to see two really good friends at the concert as well, which was a pretty sweet surprise! Hi Beth and Alex! :)

Ashley and Uriah are awesome hosts. Ashley puts me to shame with her domestic skills. Gosh, I've got to learn how to make chocolate chip cookies like that. No more cookie mixes for me, I guess ;)

Kenny got us Boston College football game tickets for Saturdays game against Colorado State. You see, I am not exactly a football fan so this was our attempt for me to like it. It was pretty cool live! There were a lot of older die hard fans with their retro game logo seat pads. SO cute!

I'll do more of a recap tomorrow! Don't forget to enter my Freshly Picked Moccasin GIVEAWAY and remember that you have numerous entries per day.

See ya'll tomorrow! :)

Freshly Picked Moccasins Review and Giveaway!

Ever since I knew I was having a little boy, I've been in love with the  leggings and moccasins combination for my little bug. There is something so cute and simple about a t-shirt, leggings and moccasins.

My absolute favourite moccasin company is Freshly Picked, based out of Utah. They seem like they are the originals in my books...the moccasins I've drooled over from the very beginning. The lovely Rachel from FP has been awesome in e-mailing back and forth with me for this giveaway.

I chose the birch color because it is so neutral and easy to pair clothes with.

Side Note- Oh my gosh, you people with little girls, check out these beyond adorable moccasins from the series called Picnic Pack. There are also watermelon and ant prints!
Pineapple Print Moccasins

I love how easy these shoes are to put on due to the elastic around the heel. They slip on with ease, which is a-ok in my books with a squirmy 8 month old baby! I can't comment on how they do with walkers because my little guy is just starting to crawl around, but I have read positive feedback about leather footwear for babies. Another plus to these shoes is that they stay on his feet!

FP has been featured in Parenting Magazine, US Weekly (hello Blue Ivy!),, Keeping up with the Kardashians and Kourtney and Kim take New York. Source All the cool kids, people!

I am very excited to be a part of a giveaway to you, my readers. YOU can win a pair of these adorable moccasins for your little one, or a little one that you love, or a little one on the way, perhaps? You can choose one pair from their many colours!

This giveaway is open to US AND CANADIAN residents. Please note! If you are Canadian, then there is a $11.55 shipping fee.

Disclosure- I was sent a pair to test out and was not paid or encouraged to say positive things about their company or product, these are 100% my own opinions!

Happy Winning! :)

Two Weeks Left of 28 and Other Things

It is windyyy this am. We lost our power overnight, but thankfully it's back on and I was blissfully unaware that it went off. I may or may not be afraid of the dark ;) Thankfully Sadie kept me safe all night while Kenny worked.

Saturday morning started off at 9am with CPR recertification for my dental hygiene license. I loved my instructor, 2 hours and we were done. Whoop! Best class I've been to yet (not hard lol) He was so engaging, fun and knowledgable that he made it a really good class.

This weekend was just what I needed. Dan and Katie came up on Thursday and stayed until Sunday. Man I wish they lived closer. Laughing with them is one of my favourite things. Tate and little Miss V. hit it off, too!

Tate loved when Uncle Dan read him Hug Time:
This is hilarious and so true. White girls in yoga pants totally love all things pumpkin and fall. Haha! I am definitely included in this statistic. Thanks Leanne for sending this to me!
Oh, this kid. Love him to pieces. We went to Chapters and got him this little book with baby faces because he squeals with delight every-time he sees a picture of himself!
P.S Yes I know he needs a haircut:D lol!
How cute and maritime-like is this bottle of blueberry jam? I got it for placing 2nd in my age group at the Maritime Race Weekend last week. It's really yummy jam!
Since my race, I've done 2 5km stroller runs and a 9km run pain free, so I am feeling ready to jump into higher distances. Not 100% sure about my half in a few weeks because I've lost a lot of endurance and speed. Hopefully I can make it back!

Guys I have 2 weeks until I am 29! What the?! My last year in my 20's, I feel like I have to make this year the best one yet!

Boston this week!! Whoop, I'm excited to get away, even if it's not a far away vacation. I love Boston and get to see my sister and that's pretty fun!

How was your weekend?
Anything fun we should do in Boston?
Does your career require you to re-license every year? 
Does turning a certain age freak you right out?!

Currently #2

I had fun doing a currently post, so here goes #2. I feel like I originally got the idea from Katie, so thanks girl!

I'm Currently:

drinking my last cup of pumpkin coffee.
watching Sadie sleep beside me. a lazy morning for the pup.
wishing I didn't kink my neck last night in my sleep
dreaming of being able to stay at home with Tate for a few years
saving for my vacation to Austria and Switzerland
indulging in a crazy cinnamon bun Kenny bought at the country market. Move over, cinnabon!
looking for cute fall clothes, for both Tate and I ;)
thinking that I am going to go for a run once Kenny gets home!
craving hmm, sushi! 
loving my little boy. such a mobile little monkey these days
looking forward to  NEEDTOBREATHE concert next Saturday!!!!! *Slightly excited*
wondering how little man is going to do on the drive to Boston. 
justifying a shopping spree in Boston for fall clothes ;)

Here's a song from NeedtoBreathe's new album:

Tuesday Training #9

Welcome to Tuesday Training #9! Join in and post whatever you like about your training. Take my sticker (above) and link up on the bottom!

This past week was another low mileage week. I think that was a smart move because my heel caused me zero pain yesterday! I really hope that this pesky injury is on its way out the door. Bye bye achilles!

Let's look back at last week's training:

The gym. I love my gym days, it gives me some "me time" and lets me workout which makes me happy. Not being able to run tends to make a bit on the crabby side;) I was only able to make it 2/3 gym days last week because well, life happens.

This is a recycled photo from my Thursday Thoughts post I believe. I highly recommend using the bosu ball because it engages your core. Why not make your workout a little more challenging?

I went to the gym right before they closed on Sunday and fit in a strength workout. I think I did my workout mostly on a bosu ball again, plus a couple of circuit machines and some abs.

On Monday I planned to do a little run, but I decided to give my heel one more day of rest and to see how it feels. I have one more Physiotherapy appointment covered and then that's it! Going 2-3 times per week will use up your $700 pretty quick ;)

In case you missed my recap from the race on Saturday. I did the 10km race and everything felt good, I just felt like I really pushed myself. I can't wait to get my endurance back and push myself again in a race and hopefully get the 10km time I am wanting:)
yup, recycled from yesterdays post! :)
How did your training go this week?
Are you nursing an injury?
