Morning Jogs With Husb

I have had the goal to go running in the mornings for a while now but I just couldn't do it without a buddy.  Last Monday, Anthony just decided that we were going to do it together.  He sets the alarm for 6 in the morning and wakes me up every morning.  We get all bundled up and go jog around the block.  Last week we only ran 3 out of the 5 days and did a total of 4.2 miles for the week.  When we started I could not even run one lap (0.7 miles) without stopping.  

This week we have run every morning and did a total of 10.5 miles.  On Wednesday I ran 2.5 miles which is the farthest I have ever run without stopping.  The next day we ran a 5k!! That's 3.2 miles without stopping. I was determined to do it in under 40 min. so we picked up the pace for the last 3 min. or so.  We sprinted the ending stretch and it felt great!  I am so proud of myself and am so thankful for such a wonderful partner in life who helps me to accomplish my goals.  Plus we get in really good conversation before our day even starts.  I love our morning runs!

 A big thumbs up after my first 5k with Hubby by my side every step of the way.  Notice the huge grin and red face.
3.2 miles in 39 minutes and 48 seconds.  I have until the 14th of April to improve that time because we will be competing in a 5k race.

Dream House

A while back when I started nannying we went on a walk through the little guys neighborhood and I discovered my dream house.  There a tons of beautiful homes in his neighborhood but this one is my favorite.  I hope Anthony and I can save up enough money so we can aford a home like this someday.

 Such a cool tower thing.  I don't really know what to call it.
 I love the paint colors and the brick chimney.
 Look at this house! It is so perfect.   I love the chimneys, all the windows, the layout, the front porch, the list goes on and on
 They even have a front porch swing!  swoon.
 I love the American flag and the pair of rocking chairs.  Such the classic American Dream House.
I super dooper love this house and so does Anthony.  Can't wait to own our own home someday.
