Bikini Mixer swim from Victoria's Secret.
Okay people let me tell you my OBSESSION with Victoria's Swimsuits... it borders on crazy!
I own probably around 5 VS swimsuits & just ordered the one above yesterday. The bottoms are on back order till mid-June, so I figure I'll just wear one of my black bottoms with the top in SPI.
I got this one when they were having an amazing sale at American Eagle & have worn it a few times since. I friggin love this bikini! The back is a little hard to figure out and tighten, but once it's on it's comfy & so freakin cute!!

I dream daily about laying on a beach somewhere soaking up the sun with a drink in my hand. In less than 2 weeks that dream will come true!
We're going with The Hub's whole family to South Padre Island.
It's an annual trip we all take together & it's really what we look forward to every year!
I don't know what it is, but being near a beach makes me happier than most anything else I can think of.
Whenever we take vacays The Hubs & I make sure it's somewhere warm and tropical.
We'll be going on another Disney Cruise to the Carribean the end of the summer as well with stops in Cozumel, Jamaica, Bahamas, & Cayman Islands.

I freakin love this!
We all need motivation sometimes!
Look I ran 4.5 miles last Saturday morning which I was excited about, but haven't ran again.
(I'm running today and doing the CX Works class!)
I ate like shit & didn't workout or run on Sunday and Monday due to being lazy & the holiday, but it's time to get back to it and get my ass working out again.
I have less than 2 weeks before I'm laying on a beach in SPI so it's definitely needed!

It's only a 30 minute class & trust me that's all you need. It's pretty hardcore and works your entire body! Maybe because we were already somewhat tired from running, or maybe because the class kicked our asses, but we both were sore for days!!
Here's the stats on this class:
It's definitely a tough class, but we've decided every Wednesday night we're going to run then hit the CX Works class. Help build muscle before vacays start!

I've always been one to believe that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Yes some things are insanely harder than others, but it's your want that makes the difference.
I always said that I could never become a runner. I gave numerous excuses why I couldn't or didn't want to run.... for years.
But I finally got off my ass and tried it and now I love it.
I finally reached 4 miles last Saturday morning & felt like I was an actual runner. I didn't hurt after, sure my legs were sore but nothing that killed me.
Absolutely nothing is impossible if you put your heart and soul into it!

After we finished we ran a few errands then went to see Rio 2. I have to be honest and say it definitely wasn't her favorite movie ever, but we had fun! Saturday night we went to our neighbor's house for a bbq & to watch the Preakness. So much fun to catch up with everyone!
Sunday morning we were up bright & early to get our family pictures taken. Our good friend, Kelli is an amazing photographer so I can't wait to see how they turned out!
After pics we ran around and cleaned everything in sight. It was so nice to have a clean home, car, and yard! We finished the evening laying out by the pool with all of our neighbors then having the best shrimp boil!

I feel like as a woman we never believe any of these things about ourselves, but completely see them in each other. Especially close friends, we see everything they really are... smart, beautiful, strong, etc. but yet fail to see these amazing things about our own selves.
I "compete" with a lot of friends every month on running. I hate that I only ran 3 miles one day and they ran 6. I hate that I have to stop sometimes because my asthma is kicking my ass when I know they can run without slowing down the whole time. Then one of them reminds me how far I've gotten in such little time. They remind me that I'm stronger than I think I am.
I love that I have such amazing awesome friends who lift each other up & cheer for each other even though we're trying to out run each other. It makes the journey 10x easier. My friends are all smart, witty, gorgeous women who deserve to think of themselves that way. All women are!
So stop the constant battle with yourself and start seeing you as others see you.
Open your eyes and mind to think that you are beautiful, smart, funny, etc.
Because all women deserve to feel beautiful every single day.

Saturday night we met Eric's family for an early Mother's Day dinner. We had a great time catching up and laughing! Bella had a kid's night out at the ymca so we met up with friends and had a mini date night. (We had to leave at 10 to get her so it was an early night for us!)
Sunday The Hubs & Bella surprised me with brunch at Z Tejas! It's my favorite place for brunch and it was delicious! I even got a mimosa with my meal which was yummy!
We met up with all our neighborhood friends Sunday afternoon at the pool & ended up letting all the husbands grill fajitas for dinner. It was a blast and dinner was delicious! We really do have the best neighbors ever!
Overall an amazing weekend!

Just incase it slipped your mind, Sunday is Mother's Day!
I'm not sure our plans because The Hubs is keeping it all a secret from me & he's trained Bella well enough to not spill the beans! But I know it'll be awesome whatever they have planned.
I hope every Mom, Grandma, etc. have a wonderful Mother's Day!

These look fabulous for running. I like that you can make them shorter or longer depending on your tastes. They seem super comfy as well.
Y'all know my
obsession love for anything Nike & these shorts are swoon worthy. They're short enough to run in, but not overbearingly tight. Plus they have the dri-fit technology that is amazing when you're on a long run. I'd probably go for a black pair over this peachy color, but either way I love those damn shorts!
The thing I love most about these is how soft and lightweight they are. (And that they're only $25!) They come in tons of colors & have the moisture wicking so that you stay cool while you run. Score!
What's your favorite running shorts?
