MIMM #2 New Shoes, a Wedding, and Boating

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! My weekend was crazy busy. Great to see many family and friends, but we’re pretty exhausted today. Luckily, today is my last day of summer vacation so I can catch up on sleep.

Marvelous is…running 10 miles solo. I had a great run on Friday morning. It pushed me beyond my comfort zone because of the high mileage. It felt so great to get the miles in and to know I CAN do it by myself. I fueled with fruit snacks that turned into Gushers by the time I ate them. It was a hot, sweaty run!

Marvelous is…getting a mini-break from this little guy. We had to board him for the first time over the weekend because of a wedding we attended. It was hard to be away from him for a night, but also kind of peaceful.

Marvelous is…new running shoes! Not for me unfortunately, but I was happy hubby bought a new pair because he was in desperate need. He decided on the Saucony Hurricane. Pretty snazzy.

Marvelous is…feeling confident with my body. I bought a new dress ($15 from American Eagle online) and a new necklace ($13, Kohls) for the wedding we went to.

Marvelous is…seeing two people in love and strengthening relationships with my husband’s family. My husband’s cousin was married on Saturday. The wedding was absolutely beautiful.

Marvelous is…spending time on the water with my husband. We spent the day on my brother’s boat on Sunday. The weather was hot, but beautiful. A guy at the sandbar took one look at me and said, “I hope you’re wearing a lot of sunscreen.” Yep, end of summer and I’m still pale, but I’m okay with it.

I had a marvelous weekend and now am  looking forward to this week! I return to work at a school tomorrow. I’m looking forward to starting the year with everyone else, as last year I started in the middle of the year.

I am grateful to spend time with both my husband’s and my own family this past weekend. Have a great week!!

How was your weekend? Did you do any “last time of the summer” things?

  1. That is a marvelous weekend! The wedding looks gorgeous, and I love hearing people say they feel good in their body. Yes! We need that self-acceptance and confidence- you look great too, by the way. 🙂
