Hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! I definitely enjoyed my 3 day weekend 😀
Started the weekend off Friday wondering just how effective my interval training has been with increasing my endurance. My co-workers were talking about all doing a 5K ina few months and it got me thinking….dangerous right?! I decided I would see how well I could run a 5K. In less than 36mins apparently 🙌🏻 Last mile was rough but I’m super proud of myself for not giving up.
The rest of the weekend was spent with family enjoying super yummy food I don’t normally eat. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, homemade white gravy….so worth every bite! Since my guy and I both had Monday off we decided to head to our favorite spot and do a little night fishing. Only caught a catfish, but the views didn’t disappoint!
“At Garden Elementary, we grow character.”
This morning I got to start my day at the Character Breakfast Celebration where my munchkin received an award for being a shining example of gratitude. Ugh. My heart could burst with how proud I am of her and how proud she was to be recognized by her classmates and teacher for this!
Let’s finish the week strong and make it a great weekend! Weather isn’t going to be that great in this neck of the woods but we desperately need the rain here in SWFL. We have a MASSIVE wildfire burning a few miles down I-75 from us that has been burning since last Saturday that has burned almost 4000 acres. Across the state right now there are I think close to 15 wildfires going. This time of year down here can be rough so I’m grateful for a rainy weekend and hope it puts an end to our fires for a bit.
A couple days ago my daughter said she wanted to go on a nature walk so I did some digging and found an environmental park less than 10mins away. Sunday after an awesome breakfast we headed out for our nature walk and let me tell you, Florida did not disappoint!
I love that within 20mins we have access to beautiful spots like this as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the country! We are lucky lucky ducks getting to call SWFL home 😀
