Running Around & Chilling Out

Morning, friends! I hope you are well and had a good weekend. Mine was a wonderful combination of go, go, go and chill out and rest. Saturday was fast and furious and Sunday was errands and relaxation so I'm ready to tackle the week. Right now the weather looks fabulous and I have a bunch of fun stuff going on in the next few days so I'm smiling and enjoying life.

Let's check out the weekend in review. This weekend I...

… snapped up some amazing deals during the Sephora sale. My treasures are set to arrive today and I can't wait to dig into my beauty buys. I'm stoked I was able to nab the Naked on the Run before it sold out and I'm looking forward to my first foray with Butter nail polish. The Cartier, St Laurent and Fresh products were all samples and I'd love to hear thoughts if any of y'all use them. #ilovemakeupsales #soexcitedfornewperfumeandlotion
… Saturday morning we were up bright and early for the Army Turkey Trot. Daddy and Babyspice rand the 10K and Mama B, Sportyspice, Le Husband and I ran the 5K together. Well, Mama B took off and WON her age group and the three kids stuck together. This year was SO MUCH better than last year both weather and race wise and it was fun tackling a race with those I love. Cheers to Mama B winning a turkey and Babyspice winning a PIE for 2nd place #funfitfamily!
The family that runs together, looks cute together. 

… treated myself to amazing banana french toast at Silver Diner. #sooooogoood

… drove home, showered then headed to my hair appointment. It was just a color touch up and trim but  it made me feel fabulous. Is there anything better than an hour or so at a salon?
Love the color touch up and new mousse
… bought a new mousse that I LOVE so far. Check it out if you're in the market. 
Purchase *here* or at a salon

… hung around the house and then got ready for dinner with a bestie. Was super excited to wear two of my favorite fall pieces. Loving my plaid pieces and of course my fabulous faux fur vest. 
Just a bit of fall fashion
… met up at a DC favorite for dinner. I hadn't seen my bestie in awhile and it was wonderful catching up with her wedding plans and life. Even though things have changed we're still able to pick up where we left off. #friendsarefunandsoaredrinks
Oh sangria, how I love thee.
… had a freak out moment when the Metro stopped running trains to my stop. So grateful for my amazing husband who drove to come pick me up in DC. #wtfmetro #thankyouhoney

… slept in Sunday morning and then attacked the laundry monster while prepping chili for dinner.

… caught up on some readying and blogging.

… went for a beautiful fall day bike ride with Le Husband. LOVING this mild fall weather.

… Snapped up these beautiful babies. So happy with my new rain/snow boots! #cheerstoreisales


… ate delicious homemade chili while watching football and catching up on our shows.

… tried out *this* recipe. So yummy, can't wait to try another twist on it.
I used chocolate instead of white chocolate, mmm, mmm, good!

… skipped out on my soccer game because my shin still hurts from two weeks ago.

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?

Way to go Mama B!!! I love that your family ran a race together, too cute. That bowl of chili just got me inspired to make chili this week!

Sounds like a great weekend! I love trips to the salon...I always leave feeling like a princess, haha! The combination of the faux fur and the plaid is so cute, I will have to try that! Also, you had an awesome Sephora haul. The UD eyeshadow primer is awesome, I love using it!

Homemade chili is the best! I love the way that Fresh mask smells! So good!

It looks like you snagged some pretty amazing goodies during the Sephora sale! I love the Urban Decay primer, it's seriously the best! No matter how much I sweat, my eye makeup is not budging! And that's so awesome that y'all all ran the Turkey Trot together! What a fun and healthy thing to do as a family!

Illegally Blonde said...

Love Butter London polish! I did not get any Sephora fun as I did that a couple weekends ago... Love your outfit, I have that shirt, we need to twin soon. And your hair! This might be the first time your hair is longer than mine! Love love. And the leggings.... I love your family!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Foxy's Domestic Side said...

What a great weekend, and the fact that your whole family runs is so awesome! What a fun thing to do together. And dinner with a good friend, even better. I think I need a fur best in my life too!

Erin LFF said...

How fun that the whole fam got involved in the race- and hooray for good weather too. That makes ALL the difference. Your banana french toasts looks like the PERFECT post-run meal, yum! :) I love the boots you got!!

Tiara Wasner said...

Sounds like a great weekend! Sorels are hands down the BEST! I have more than I would like to admit and of course I'm eying a new pair. SHHH don't tell my husband ;)

Caitlin Elizabeth said...

You got some awesome finds at Sephora! The Turkey Trot looks like so much fun and so great your family does it too! Awesome job of your mom for winning!

Not A Mom said...

So many things I want to comment on, I hope I can remember it y'all! Your hair looks fantasticcccc and I loved y'alls leggings in that picture! The sephora buys confession: I've actually never tried Butter nail polish but I am dying too after seeing all my blogger friends post about it. I am freakin' over those winter shoes, Target has a bootie version that I've had my eye on for a bit..may have to go get them so we can kinda match ha!

lil desiqua said...

Such a perfect fall outfit! I love friendships where even though things may change, you can pick up where you left off- those are the good ones! Annnddd, now I need to go get those boots. I had no idea REI was having a sale, and I desperately need some heavy duty boots before winter arrives!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I grabbed Naked on the Run, too! I wanted it for my sister for Christmas and I was so nervous it would be gone by the time regular VIBers were able to shop the sale!

Tracy said...

I *almost* ordered Naked on the Run for a gift for my mom but went with a Tarte palette instead. I have that Fresh rose mask and it's fun and smells good but not worth paying for the full size IMO (luckily I got it as a gift).
Congrats on your 5k! You guys DO look super cute!
