Friday, I love you.

Happy Friday. I do love a good Friday afternoon in the recliner with the DogNamedDub by my side as we catch up on one or fifty blogs. I only have a single minute to post this sweet little blog…. I must get ready for a football game. (Another favorite thing about Friday nights.)

I recently read something that said you can tell so much about a person by what’s on their nightstand. I thought I would share mine as my Friday Five.


Jesus Calling.
Hands down BEST devotional EVER. Every single day is like, “Wow! I totally needed that today!” I also gave one to my BFF as a gift. I love it that much. (And her.)

What did we do without Ipads? I love mine. It is the holder of all things amazing. Nook. Kindle. Pinterest. Facebook. Blogs.

Garmin charger.
I love my Garmin. It is my BFF for this marathon training. It is my favorite running purchase ever. Love.

TKES Handbook. I read this once a week. I secretly love it. Shhhhh.

A picture of my favorite person. My sweet Rylie. (I miss her more than words.)

In reflection: I totally think my nightstand describes me. I am a sinner that falls daily. God is always there to pick me up, and give me just what I need. I love reading and need immediate access to the internet at all times. I’m training for a marathon and long runs control my life. I love honest people and my sweet friend the Garmin 210 is the most honest person I know. Sadly. I’m a teacher and I 100% love LOVE LOVE my job more than words can ever explain.  I miss my sweet family each day… but I know I am right where I need to be.

Ten extra bonus points for the person that names the parenting book that is somewhat hidden. WOAH: Before you get allllll kinds of “WAIT…. Baby Cain?!?” No. Sorry. However, we Cains love to read and LOVE anything that teaches. Yes, that IS indeed a parenting book under there. Confession: I read anything and everything that I think will teach me something about sweet children.  

Love love,

There are 567,940 things that I SHOULD be doing right now. The top of that list includes writing a paper that is due this weekend (but I have a XC meet and a football game to attend so it must be posted tonight!) cooking dinner, or vacuuming the floors. (This must happen daily thanks to a DogNamedDub.)

However, I felt like the blog needed an quick minute of my time. Here's what's up.

I just walked in the door about 17 minutes ago and made a cup of coffee. I've been wanting one since the storm started. (Plus I thought it would motivate me to write this paper. That worked well.)

Here is my life as of lately:

Cross Country. Yes. My absolute fave. I love them all. Even when they make me sad with "ahhhhh we love rain days!" Boooooo rain days! Nothing beats running outside!

My husband. Such a hottie. Especially in pink Southern Tide. (But what's new. He's always a hottie!)

My friends. They are the absolute best. I am happy they love red and black. Or maybe we wouldn't be friends?!

Family. I miss you. Please come see me soon!

First grade. I love you. You make me sleep realllllly good at night. But I love every single moment.

Running. 14 miles made me reconsider my love for running. I cried. Lots and lots. And I complained. More and more. However, I reallllllly love the time we spend together as well as the life problems we solve.

Life. Just absolutely 100% chaos. But it's the #CainLife

Love love,

Life Is Like....

Life is like... really good right now. We made it... May is here. Bring on the to do list that is 18 miles long.  Rather than the millio...
