Summer Blues... there such a thing?

In my world I think not. I love LOVE love summer. Everything about it, from the blaring sun to the creepy bugs. It is hands down my favorite season. If it were 90+ and sunny 367 days a year I would be in heaven (yes, I know there are only 365 days in a year....). It is strange though, given this info, that I loved the PNW so much. That's neither here nor there, the fact remains-I love summer, and summer is here!

So I was so excited this weekend when LB and I packed up the car and headed to the beach. We spent the whole day Saturday just chillaxing on the beach, not a care in the world.

8 AM (diet) Pepsi in hand, in the middle of the street....Mom of the Year Award!

Beach time...
We dug so many holes my arms and back were sore on Sunday....Talk about a workout!


Sunday I got to meet up with an old friend I haven't seen in a long time! Our kids got to meet for the first time and they hit it off immediately. It was great to catch up with her and of course the conversation turned to fitness. She mentioned Wildman Training, and I was all ears when she said it was using body weight, at home, and it works....obviously, she looks amazing! I'm going to give it a try and see what happens. I need to gain some strength to improve my overall fitness level. Starting tonight I am going to give it a try and see how it goes.


This past weekend at the beach definitely helped me feel rejuvenated, revived, de-stressed, de-compressed, alive, care-free and happy....and that my 5 Mile friends is awesome.
Me and LB <3


  1. Looks like a perfect weekend. Love the the beach, it can heal anything, from a broken heart to a knee scrap the ocean is like magic for the heart and soul. So glad your feeling relaxed. :)

  2. Ahhhhhhhhh what a great weekend. Glad you enjoyed! You deserve it!

  3. @RunWiki you are SO right, it cures all that ails! I will be going back...hopefully every other weekend! =)

    And thanks Marlene!!! =)

  4. You look so HAPPY and at peace.. That is what I want for you :) HUGS lady!!

  5. i loved summer slightly more in KC where it wasn't the crazy miami humidity...but yes summer is superb!

  6. What awesome pictures! That looks like a blast.

    Nothing better than fun time at the beach.

  7. Love love love the beach! You look fabulous!!! Enjoy those moments...they are the ones that last!

  8. That's one of the good things about where I live too. We're completely surrounded by water here in Michigan, not to mention all of the inland lakes, so there's always somewhere to go for that.

    That said though, I'm not a big summer fan. Give me 55 degrees all year 'round with a lot of mostly sunny forcasts and that'd be my heaven.

  9. Sounds like an awesome weekend! I LOVE the beach...just call me Queen Beach Bum!

  10. Great beach pics! I wanna gooooo! Glad ya'll had fun...

  11. LOVE the last picture!!!
