Five on Friday

It's been a minute, hasn't it?

I think the end of 2017 was the busiest end of year ever for me. It was non-stop from mid-November until now... and even now, I'm still on the go because I'm currently exploring a new-to-me town, Austin, TX with the awesome group of women that I work with.

Today, we're off to Waco, Texas to MAGNOLIA MARKET! Am I a tiny bit excited? You bet. As soon as we decided that we were headed to Austin, I have been mentally planning the day trip to Waco. I adore Fixer Upper and Chip and JoJo, and cannot wait to see Magnolia Market in person in just a few hours.

Here's the first Five on Friday for y'all!

One of the gifts under the tree for me this Christmas was an Apple Watch.

10 days later, I'm happy to report that I LOVE this watch. Huge fan. I don't know how I made it so long without it. It worked great for the 5K that I ran this past weekend and I'm on a mission to figure out all of the fun things that I can do with it.

Speaking of 5Ks, it's that time of year again. Cold weather has arrived and it's time to run all of the races all around Columbia. I ended the year with three races in town and got some pretty epic finish line pictures, like this one:

I call it the "I can finish this race in under 29 minutes?!?! RUN!!!!"

We're getting super outdoorsy and active around our house. After talking about it for yearssss and years, Patrick and I finally have our own mountain bikes.

Of course, as soon as we got the bikes, the weather got super cold and not great for biking. We've been able to get them out around the 'hood a few times though. I love biking at the beach, but I love being able to hop on the bike at the house and go for a ride. We're hoping to get to some of the trails soon, like Harbison State Forest, but haven't quite made it there yet.

If you haven't been to Columbia Craft Brewing yet, you need to make plans to go there soon as well. Columbia was in desperate need of an additional brewery or two and Columbia Craft was the first of 3 planned breweries to open up.

Their Columbia Craft Lager and the 007ession Session Ale are my two favorites.

We may not have gotten snow in Columbia this week {boo!} but we do have a pretty cool outdoor ice skating rink.

Ice skating + Columbia may not sound like a good combination, but I promise you that it is. My uncoordinated self made it around the rink several times without any mishaps! Main Street Ice is legit.


Happy first Friday of 2018!
