Weekend Wonders + New house

Happy Weekend!!!

The good news is, we got a new flip house! The bad news is …we’ve got a ton of work on our hands (Hence this big giant bucket “closing gift” I got for Nick!). But, I think this house may be our best one yet! I know…I know…I say that every time but this one is pretty awesome and we’re only 2 days in! We closed last week, got our hands extra dirty this weekend and dove in head first.

But first, we celebrated! ^^

First thing Saturday morning we got right to work to get things moving as fast as possible. These windows were just a little dirty. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m thinking of adding “Professional Landscaper” to my resume now. I even got to use some power tools this weekend! Nick normally doesn’t trust me much with these things but this time I got to work on chopping down some major greenery in our majorly over grown backyard. I was only a little nervous a snake would pop out but THANK GOODNESS I didn’t see ANY! Wheeewwwww!

With such a busy weekend of work, I didn’t get a single run in. I would still consider intense yard work a major workout though.

How non-running days really feel though….: (Can I get an amen?)

The dogs got to come by to check out their new home too! ^^They of course walked right in like they owned the place. Joey hung out upstairs where the carpet is because he hates hardwoods. His little paws don’t have much padding and his go-go-go spirit just can’t contain himself very well while he ice skates across hardwoods. We’ve even attempted socks for him but he’s not a fan of those either. Poor guy.

We got home just in time to catch the Kentucky Derby race yesterday! Nick’s pick (Always Dreaming) won the derby! Too bad he didn’t really bet on it though. Mine (Irish War Cry came in 10th….so good thing I REALLY didn’t bet money on it!)

We decided we deserved a little breakfast treat this morning for all of our hard work. Plus, we needed some extra energy for today’s tasks! ๐Ÿ˜‰ This french toast was to DIE FOR!! And that coffee was MUCH NEEDED!

:::::Drum roll please::::: It’s that time of the week again! It’s time for your weekly dose of Weekend Wonders! If you’re new around here, this is the time when I get to share my most favorite internet finds of the week with you. Anything from healthy articles to funny little gems that I can’t pass up and not share with you guys! So, get comfy, and get to reading!

1.) Did you guys catch this?? I can’t.even.imagine. I can barely run a sub-8 mile much less sub-5!!! They must have wheels for legs or something.

2.) Are you a run streaker? I’ve always considered doing one but somehow I always miss a day! But, I’d love to try and participate in this one!

3.) I’m addicted to watching running documentaries on YouTube. This one was on the Barkley Marathon and it’s absolutely insane. These runners are seriously dedicated and amazingly tough! (But maybe a little crazy too! Ha! :))

4.) Because these look like they should be in my future.

5.) Just in case you needed a little Sunday motivation to get your week started off strong! “8 Reasons to Run Today”.
