We had the honor of supporting the incredible organization GIRLS ON THE RUN while here in Dallas by serving post-run breakfast at their big END OF THE SEASON run this morning!! The turn out was SO STELLAR and there were so many girls (all ages) and their families excited for the awesome race!
Janette, the Girls on the Run – Dallas organizer is truly an inspiration! When she first introduced Girls on the Run to Dallas 7 years ago she had 30 people run this race…today she have over 750 participants!! It was truly spectacular!
“Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. [Their] core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development – their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors.”
Elby LOVED the race too! She was a big crowd-pleaser and also put to good use by being the perfect billboard to post the results from the race!!
We LOVE what this organization is all about and are thrilled to show how healthy eating is an important part of an active healthy lifestyle that can also be DELICIOUS! It was such a great start to our day!

This morning we joined up with some AMAZING mamas and their AWESOME instructor, Amber, for STROLLER STRIDES – HURST! It was the perfect morning…not too hot and sunny! Amber got class kicked off right away and ensured that for the entire 60 minutes you were feelin’ the burn and challenging yourself. She creates great combination of workouts that are done in a series so that you are “sprinting” while strength training. We wrapped up class enjoying a picnic of LOVE in the grass. It was fabulous!
Amber keeps your feet moving the ENTIRE time!
Picnic of LOVE
What do you do when your Mac yells at you because your wireless mouse’s battery is running low. With the scary yellow exclamation point and everything!
Option 1: Change the battery.
Option 2: Move to computer the next to you and leave the mouse next to you to slowly lose power and die.
If it were a Friday: Option 1. Since it is Tuesday and hence, the hardest week in my book, Option 2 it is!
Lots of love from a lazy Tuesday ”Love Bomb”,
So yesterday I posted the TOP 7 REASONS WHY ELBY MAKES A TOUGH TRAVEL BUDDY…but I must clarify, I LOVE ELBY. Elby is a true delight…hence the reason I have 10 reasons why she rocks and ONLY 7 why she doesn’t. So let the list begin:
#10- Driving Elby is like being a turtle. (You travel with your home on your back.)
#9- She get’s the party started. (When we pull up to a park and everyone looks, you know we are about to bring some LOVE! Sometimes I consider getting a fog machine just so when I open the door we can make a bigger entrance…!)
#8- You always make new friends. (People can’t deny the LOVE.)
#7- You get to see the nation.
#6- She sleeps 6…can you say SLEEPOVER?!
#5- You always get noticed.
#4- You never forget anything–everywhere you go you have all that you brought…EPIC.
#3- She is one giant, moving billboard: SPREAD LOVE!
#2- You never go hungry (I mean, she has had up to 1,500lbs of Oat Clusters & LOVE!)
And the #1 REASON WHY ELBY ROCKS: SHE IS COVERED IN LOVE!!!
Huge shout out to the moms of Stroller Strides Grapevine! We had such a blast with them Monday morning and their awesome instructor who works you head from toe…inside out: Farrah! Despite getting lost amidst the crazy highway construction, we finally arrived and immediately hopped into a tough workout. As we dodged muddy patches, Farrah ensured that every major muscles was not only working…but BURNING! It was awesome! Class ended just in time before another storm rolled in! It was perfect!
Post workout LOVE:
Love Grown = healthy babies = happy mommies
Farrah is an incredible instructor with high energy and great knowledge on the body! It was such a pleasure joining her and her awesome class!
