The Color Run and a cleaning tip.

Monday, September 1, 2014

Saturday I had the pleasure of running The Color Run with a running bandit. Well, not exactly a running bandit, though she did have the bandana to go with it. My sister-in-law, Corey, wasn't able to make it to The Color Run as originally planned, so I asked Abbey to go in her place = awesomeness.

No one told me my shirt was see-through. Ugh.

Waiting in the chute in the shade where it was chilly!

I didn't take any photos on the run, we were too busy walking and chatting. This isn't a run where I'm ever motivated to run - so many walkers. So, we just chatted it up and splashed each other with color.

We found a nice person to take our photo :)

Strike a pose.

And then it was time to clean-up and quickly get ready for our housewarming party! Photos to come.

P.S. Abbey's beau Jay found a tip online last year to use Suave shampoo to clean off the colors from the run. It worked perfectly and was far easier to clean than last year. Thanks Jay for the tip!

Ice cream and Winnie the Pooh for the win!

We had a long needed date night to Jose's!

Daddy was left alone with Miles for a few hours...

Opened a coffee pot we recieved seven years ago; ready for the house warming and currently making tea.

Homemade broccoli soup, ahhh it tastes so good.

Finally, the sign is being finished and ready to hang.

That's a little bit of what's happening around here. A lot of final prep for an open house party this weekend and mentally preparing to head back to school. I usually look forward to fall jeans and hoodies, but man I've got some pounds to lose if I hope to fit into mine! I'm using MyFitnessPal to get back on track and Paprika to cook more again. Starting to feel like my old self, just need to break out of this running slump...

Yay for the Color Run Saturday!!

I am a wife and mom in New Jersey who is obsessed with my family, food, fitness, and photography. I love to read and play with new tech; which might be the reason I'm a librarian, too. I'm living proof that there's no end to what you can learn.
