Some Weekend Photos and My Weekly Plan

Happy Monday, friends!

How was your weekend?

Ours was great, as it was one of the last “free” weekends we have before we move to Colorado so we made sure to make the most of it.

First Friday Food Truck Festival:

Brian Food Truck

Tara Food Truck

Even though we were at the food truck festival and everything looked UH-MAZING, I was really craving some salad bar from the brand new Marsh grocery store they put in downtown.  So good 🙂

9 mile run on Saturday morning.  This is the longest I have run since the Mini Marathon and I felt great during and after!


Brian’s childhood friend, Ben, became a priest on Saturday 🙂

  1. You guys look like you are taking full advantage of your time outside before the big move! Yay for wedding weekends- exciting but exhausting!

  2. O can not wait for the recipe! I have been looking everywhere for Bob’s GF Scottish Oats!

    • Tara Deal says:

      Have you checked online, Rebecca? This was my first time using them. How do you like to eat them?

  3. Looks like you had a fun weekend! I haven’t gone hiking much these past couple years but would really like to start doing it again since there are so many beautiful hiking trails in the northwest!

    • Tara Deal says:

      This was really our first “hike” together like that and it was a blast! Definitely get back into it if you can 🙂 So fun!

  4. Looks like you guys had a super active and fun weekend! Way to go on your 9 miler!!

  5. On the agenda this week is to pack up winter stuff and take to my parents in pre move preparations since I can do that now before the babies arrive!!! I’m hoping to get a lot of other ‘non everyday use’ stuff up too!

    • Tara Deal says:

      So smart to get that stuff done now before the babies arrive! Good luck getting everything together 🙂

  6. love your hot pink & mint workout outfit!
