Moving Mommy Monday

This weekend was pretty calm, just bunch of running, football, cleaning and a fundraising event. Well that doesn’t sound too calm but it felt like it was HAHA!!

Friday, when I picked my little one up from daycare, HE WALKED TO ME. YAY!! He’s been taking a few wobbly steps here and there but this time he had bit more control. Our walk home was a bit different too because he just wanted to be on the ground. I guess you can say we’ve reached another milestone (and my hubby and I better be ready). So we cleaned up a bit and just relaxed.

Saturday, I hit the pavement for a 12mile run with my running buddy and a new running partner we met at last week’s running deal. My buddy Kabibi wasn’t feeling to well so she took it easy and our new partner and I kept moving. I love Kabibi she has so much drive and doesn’t let anything stop her. It may have taken us a little longer to get the mileage in BUT she got it done. The best thing about long runs with a partner is that you get to chat and share life experiences with each other. We had a conversation about sexual child abuse. I got a chance to share some of what I learned at the Enough Abuse training of trainer. We parted after about 7 miles so I got my prayer list done.

Saturday night, I headed to a fundraising event for GrassROOTS Community Foundation. My Aunt Tracy is always introducing me to great causes and amazing people. (I love to see African Americans having a great time or giving back to their community. We just can’t seem to get this stuff on the news. I just don’t get it.) Back to the event, GrassROOTS is an organization that is promoting health among young African American girls. Black Thought of the roots is connected to this organization and gave a great performance. The nice thing about these events is that we get to hear inspiring stories by the people who have dreamed big and made big moves like Dr. Janice Johnson Dias who started this org. AND we heard some great music from a few new musicians. Oh and we had a great time on the dance floor. The DJ was playing some great songs that didn’t include any line dances (so rare now a days). Overall, we had a great time for a great cause.

Sunday, we went to a football game, dropped my cousin off a Barnard University and my little one and I hung out at Aunt Tracy’s to watch the lifetime movie Steel Magnolias, exactly why I don’t have cable. TV can really take up way too much of your time. I literally sat still and watched TV for 5 hours, that’s more than I watch at home in a week. LOL.

Another great weekend that ended in reflection. I’ll be thirty soon and I’ve just been asking a lot of questions about my current place in life and my future. (More about thins in about a month probably, after my race😉). Hope y’all had a great weekend!!

Making moves as a mommy…it’s a work in progress😉!
