Disney on Ice

Last Sunday mom, Christen, and I took Aubrey to Disney on Ice in Birmingham! 

As soon as it started my inner child was beaming. 

I was giddy! 

Mickey, Minnie, all the princesses & princes. What more could a girl ask for?

We had so much fun! If it ever comes to your town, I highly recommend going to see it, whether you have kids or not!! :)

My oh my I've had a fun weekend!!!! 

Babysitting the kids Friday afternoon!!!

My friend Melissa came into town Thursday and we went to Christmas Village (an arts and crafts show) with my sister Christen! We stocked up on our Christmas presents. I only have a few more to get! 

Friday, Melissa got to come to my classroom for the afternoon and meet my kids! They loved having a special guest. :)

Mom & dad got me tickets to the Bama/lsu game for my birthday back in August and yesterday, I finally got to use them. :) Since Melissa was in town and she has never been to a Bama game, she went to the game with me!! I was so excited for her to finally experience a game. :)

On our way to ttown!!

Strolling the girls around campus...stopped in for some ice cream on the strip! 

Aubrey got to be a football player! 

Tailgating with my sweet friends! 

Before the game! 

Roll tide! 

I even ran into my sweet friends, Amanda and Kristin! 

We had so much fun yesterday. I think mom & dad did a pretty good job on the birthday gift this year. It will be hard to top ;)

Oh, and the Bama victory over lsu was icing on the cake. What an awesome game!!!!

1 mile down...

My running buddy Melissa and I have decided to do another half marathon together!! We are going to do the Mercedes again in February!! I am pretty excited but I haven't run outside since August so I have got to get back in the groove! I ran outside on Saturday and it felt pretty good. I absolutely loving running in the fall! It's so pretty and feels amazing outside. 

I made my own training program & am pretty much doing an extra mile each weekend until race day. There are a few weeks I only bumped it up a half a mile because I had a few extra weeks. I am going to continue working out 3-4 days a week at the gym like I have already been doing. Strength training will help with my runs on the weekends!!

Crossing that finish line back in February was the best feeling ever and I can't wait to accomplish it again! Hopefully beating my time last year too. :) 

I'm also going to do #55milesinnovember with @hausofgirls on Instagram! I took a break in August & September and didn't record it in October (even though I probably met the 48 mile goal from running on the treadmill at the gym) so I'm excited to jump back into these challenges! 

What goals are you planning for the next few months?
