Five on Friday

I had some strange dreams last night… Some huge sea creatures and my aunt shooting kittens off of our balcony. What the heck?! Dustin however had a dream our house went under contract on May 7th, send us happy thoughts that day, maybe it's a sign..

Onto the highlights from my week-
Our Colors for Mayberry team had a blast at the Color Run Saturday. This was my 2nd time to do it, I hope to do several more. It's so much fun. Thank you all for signing up and running in honor of my little brother. Next up, Warrior Dash in 2 weeks, from color to mud!
Back in my parents hometown, a 5k was put together for Christian on Saturday. It was the Miracle for Maryberry 5k. So awesome that everyone put this together and ran to raise money for our family! People rock. I wish I could have been in both places!
You may have seen my tennis shoes with holes in them on my Instagram, I said I was going to reward myself after the color run with new ones. I did just that! Loving the Nike Flex Run, they are so comfortable and lightweight. Thanks to a sale and a $20 coupon from Famous Footwear, I scored them for $59 after tax too, WIN!
There's that AWFUL picture again... Thank you all for your awesome comments and suggestions regarding my major hair probs, if you missed it make sure to read here.... 

And here is a text from my mom after she read it! Thanks mom, this is half YOUR fault you know?? 

My friend Cassie and local blogger over at True Agape has created a new product that is a great way to start some awesome conversations with your spouse and really make you think. It's a way to spend some creative quality time together. 
Creating True Agape launched Wednesday and you can view a sample here, it includes a copy of a free date!

With these activities you will get to spend quality time together and share laughter while facilitating discussions about real life scenarios. These at home dates do more than just give you something to do.

  8. So glad to hear the 5Ks went well!! I've heard the Warrior Dash is so tough, good for you! You should totally embrace your curls! I stopped fighting mine and really like Ouidad products on it. I still have days when I hate it but it helps to have the right hair cut too, which is something I really need right now!

  21. ALWAYS a yay for new workout shoes - might have to be my favorite kind of purchase!

  22. Your picture of your hair made me laugh because that's how my hair tends to look in the morning if I brush it out. The worst is if it's been in a bun while I sleep. If I take it out, and brush it out it looks just like that.

  25. Congrats on the GREAT turnout the color run was! I'm sure the mud run will be just as successful, if not more. :) It's so amazing that your entire community has come together to support you all.

    Those shoes are so great! Having fun clothes/accessories to work out in makes it so much better.
    Have a great weekend!
