Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had an amazing weekend no matter what you were doing.

My weekend involved lots of this:


Prepping for my upcoming certification weekend is fun, but I am still getting nervous. ย I just want the weekend to be here NOW! ๐Ÿ™‚

I made a BIG pot of chicken noodle soup for my little sister. ย She actually lives a couple of blocks away from me and is getting over strep throat. ย She told me the soup would make her feel better, and I couldn’t say no to the request! ย I pulled out our Le Cruiset for the very first time (it was a wedding gift!) and I love it. ย I can’t wait to make more soups in it.

I threw every veggie we own into a bowl and called it dinner. ย Yum!

Sunday morning started with my final long run in my half marathon training. ย I can’t believe how fast I ran those twelve miles…sometimes the body is just amazing. ย I am very happy with the pace I was able to maintain and will post a training recap post later this week.

12 mile run

After my 12 mile run, I made a loaf of Julie’s (Peanut Butter Fingers)ย Pumpkin Banana Loaf for Brian and I had to sample a piece…Boy is that stuff good!

Nothing too exciting happening at the Rochford residence, but still a great weekend.

Now it’s Your Turn:

  • Share something fun/exciting/anything from your weekend!


  1. I ran my last half marathon, ever! Happy about that! (:

  2. I love pulling out wedding gifts and using them for the first time. 1 year and 3 months later, we’re still doing that, and it’s fun!

    I couldn’t run the Monumental this year, but I’ll be volunteering at the expo on the Friday before the race!

      I would LOVE to meet you…what booth will you be at!! AND How lucky that you still have unused wedding gifts! FUN!

  3. Awww…so nice of you to make chicken soup for your sister! I love the Le Cruiset line of cookware! I have a couple pieces at home, but I’d love to get a pot like yours.

  4. Nice job on the 12 miles!

    The weekend was full of lots of great things! I love when weekends are relaxed but so much fun!

  5. That 12 miles was amazing – you’re a beast!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Chicken noodle soup is the best when you have a sore throat – especially strep…that is no fun!!
    We went out with friends (sans kids!) Saturday night and had a blast! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. So jealous of your la creuset dish! Confession: I cannot wait to get married just so I can register for all la creuset dishes lol. Please don’t judge me!

    • Tara Deal says:

      Davida, that is one of the GREATEST things about getting married…all of the amazing and generous gifts!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Not judging at all!

  7. i LOVE my le cruiset dutch oven and use it all winter long!

  8. I loved that chicken soup ! I need to do it more often and maybe sneek in some pumpkin too!
    Oh yes, there are some stubborn ones โ€“ they really have no idea what they are missing.
