Weekly Wrap

Guest Host: Wendy from Taking the Long Way Home

Notice anything different? Yup, we are giving the Weekly Wrap an ol’ shake up. Change is even good in the blogging world, right?!? Holly and I are opening up the Weekly Wrap to a Guest Host for a bit. Does that sound like something you’d like to do?

This week our Guest Host is Wendy from Taking the Long Way Home, she has so graciously agreed to be our guinea pig for this first week. What does that mean for you as a linker? We want to spotlight Wendy, make sure to visit her blog and comment. By the way, this is a great blogging boost. You will be able to link up directly on Wendy’s site as well as both Holly and I right here.

Our normal rules do apply like we ask that you mention in your post that you are linking up and do link back to us and the host, use our badge it lets your friends know where they can get more info should they want to participate.  It is fine to use the normal Weekly Wrap badge but you are also encouraged to use the new one at the top of this post.

We hope this will be a fun way to spotlight some of our readers and give them a taste of what hosting the Weekly Wrap each week is like. I feel like it’s worth mentioning again at what a great opportunity to grow your own blog and make different connections. You just may meet someone that will become a lifelong friend! If you are interested in guest hosting, please send us an email. My email button is on the right under connect with me and Holly’s is on the top under Contact Me!

Weekly Wrap 94 Ocean Time

I have been enjoying some time with friends at the Beach this weekend. I hope you were able to catch up with me on my social sights and see what went on.


Weekly Activity


Before I elaborate anymore let me stay accountable by sharing how my active week went.

Sunday – Relax and enjoyed Mother’s Day
Monday – 3.31 miles and another heavy leg day! Packed up the RV and headed home tonight, womp womp.
Tuesday – 2.45 miles – Back at home it’s harder to get many miles in without driving somewhere
Wednesday – 2.75 miles and back and bi’s at the gym
Thursday 1 mile
Saturday – 5k at the Beach

I knew I would only get in a few miles this weekend so I opted to run Mon – Thurs before we left.

Update on my Shopping Spree  

Last week I told you I ordered these sandals from Volatile. I got them in and they feel amazing! They were so comfy. I got them in taupe (brown) color but I think I need them in black too! If you’ve worn Volatile before you know the bed of the shoes is very soft almost like the yoga mat types. The heel is just high enough to dress up a pair of shorts and they will look great with those summer dresses!

I really like the “T” strap design it just seems to give your legs an instant slim down!

I also may have already made another sandals purchase too.  What??? They were so darn cute, and just look at the cool rope design! You can’t beat the price with a stick either! If you decide to get either of these, please do use my link as I make some change off the sale! But don’t be surprised if I use if for more shoes! #keepingitreal


Coming Up

I am wrapping up some Memorial Day plans and I can’t wait to spend the weekend with another set of friends! This time it will be all adults! Hey, we’ve got to have our fun too!

  1. Those sandals look super cute, and comfortable (most important)! I might have to check them out!

    I love the guest host idea for the Weekly Wrap – you ladies deserve a little break. This is such a HUGE link up!

  2. I can’t believe it’s already Memorial Day this weekend! It’s been so cold this month, it doesn’t feel like it’s almost summer! Your trip to Pensacola looked so fun. I’m jealous! I hope to get some beach time this weekend, but we’ll see…

    • I enjoyed our beach trip. I particularly enjoyed getting up early and having coffee on the beach. It was so calming!

  3. hope you are enjoying your time at the beach! Fun to have a guest link up and mix it up a bit. Hope to join in more this summer so maybe I will even host for you sometime

    • We would love to have you Deborah host the Weekly Wrap, you just let us know when. I’m back at work today but wishing I was still at the beach! They say today was the prettiest day of the weekend!

  4. Your camping antics totally crack me up! And you successfully found another race 😉
    Kim Hatting recently posted…Can you say DOMS?My Profile

    • Look I fought this 5k with a vengeance! They tell me I committed to it under the influence of wine so I had to do it! That is just wrong, but I’m glad I did after the fact!

  5. Yoga mats for the feet sound great!

    The guest link up is a fun idea. It’s great that you and Holly do this link, I’ve found so many blogs I wouldn’t have read otherwise, but I’m sure you need a break every now and then!

  6. I am so jealous of all that beach time!

    We have no Memorial Day plans. My brother will be in town by my parents very briefly; I had thought to go down, but he’s there for just a few hours & it just doesn’t pay for me to spend 4 hours driving when I’ve got a lot to do (including run 12 miles the next day).

    Have a great week & holiday, Tricia!

  7. Super cute sandals! Glad you are having beach fun 🙂 The hosting is a good idea…smart #holottafun ladies 🙂

  8. I ordered a few air of shoes from Macy’s and I got in Sandlea similar to those wedges but they aren’t nearly as comfortable so I may have to return them. It just always seems to be a hassle returning things online!

    • I do not like hassles either. If I don’t go right ahead and send stuff back as soon as I realize I need too, they get overlooked!

  9. Gee sorry for all the spelling errors. New phone!

  10. It’s always great when you can snag a cute pair of sandals that are comfy, too. 🙂 Have a great week!!
    Clarinda recently posted…Week in Review – 5/21My Profile

  11. I definitely need to try some of those sandals! All I wear are sandals and they would look better than just flip flops. It looks like you had a great week of running. A 5k at the beach sounds like a lot of fun. I loved all of your family pictures, it looks like you had fun!

    • We had a great time at the beach even if it was just over the weekend! The waves were really cutting up too! I haven’t seen them that rough in awhile!

  12. Oooh cute AND comfy sandals? Sign me up! I want to do a beach race! But I just did an 8k/half marathon so I may need a few days off. Have a great Memorial Day!

  13. A 5k at the beach sounds nice! Nice sandals. I need to get new ones. I mostly wear Chacos or flip flops. Hope you have a great week!

  14. I love a good shopping spree! Looks like you found some winners.

  15. I hope you had a great weekend at the beach! I am constantly on the lookout for cute and comfortable sandals.
    Lisa @ Mile by Mile recently posted…The View from the SidelineMy Profile

  16. Yay for finding great shoes. I ordered some expensive shoes on my quest for more comfortable office-appropriate shoes and I’m not sure if I will keep any of them. I feel like I’m the only woman who hates shoe shopping — I feel like shoes are bad boyfriends who make promises they never keep. 😉

  17. I think having a guest host for the weekly wrap is a wonderful idea! I would love to sign up for an upcoming week 🙂

    You always seem to have such a fun time wherever you go! Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend – I have a race in my hometown of Buffalo, so I’m hoping we have a lot of fun!

  18. I like the sandals. I used to have a few pairs of Volatile brand shoes, I liked the platforms on them. I still have them somewhere but don’t wear them anymore because platforms are so… 1990s? LOL. But I’m short and I liked them and they were extremely comfy.

    Glad you had a wonderful weekend at the beach!

  19. You all look like you were having a blast at the beach! Good times for sure! And look at you- you even found a 5K to run in! I hope you are enjoying the sand in your toes! I like the idea of the guest host each week- good idea! Enjoy your week and get ready for your next adventure!

  20. I love the guest host idea!
    Laura recently posted…5k Training and Meal PlanningMy Profile

  21. I’m in the hunt for summer sandals too, but I think I have a little bit of time. The weather is crazy, so I think I can wait until next month.

  22. I have such a hard time finding cute sandals that are supportive. I typically stick to my Birks just because they are the only ones I can wear for a long period without my feet hurting! I hope you are having an AMAZING time at the beach!

  23. oooh!! how exciting!! a partnered up link up!!

    I hope you had an awesome 5K this weekend!

    I am very excited for the holiday break!!

  24. I love the guest host idea! I hope your 5K went well (and it was on the beach – can’t be those views!).

  25. Those are some cute sandals… glad the are comfy too. This guest host idea sounds like fun!

    Thanks for the linkup!

  27. You are going to be very well-shod for summer. 🙂 Super cute sandals!
    Jessica S recently posted…Finding time for self-careMy Profile

  28. Please forgive me, I just realized last week in my return to blogging I completely forgot link up rule 101 and I spaced adding the image and link up info. As someone who does link ups, you’d think I wouldn’t have been so spacy, LOL It’s been too long, luckily your mention of it snapped me back into proper etiquette, thanks!

    A 5k on the beach, nice!!! Hope your having a great time on your trip. I’ve lived my camping life through your IG posts for a while. Luckily in a short time I finally get to get my own camping life again, LOL

  29. I’ve never tried Volatile before but knowing that they are soft almost like the yoga mat types has me intrigued. I can’t believe Memorial Day weekend is almost here. Have fun with your friends!

  30. cutest shoes ever… I will need to look into those… (not currently wearing sandals due to black toenail on my big toe… hopefully soon though…)!

  31. This host guest series is a great idea! Perfect chance to get to know all the other weekly wrapper’s better 🙂 Very cute sandals, too. I’m all about the sandals in the summer!

  32. I think the guest host for the weekly wrap is a great idea! Hope you enjoyed your Mother’s Day!

  33. You two ladies have done it again! What a great idea to have a guest hostess and Wendy has done a fabulous job! Enjoy your beach time and soak up that vitamin sea! Love and hugs!

  34. I am soooooo looking for to the three day weekend. I know you’ll have a lot of fun! Cute sandals! I like a T strap and can sometimes do a stacked heel, but no high ones for me.

  35. It looks like y’all had a blast in Pensacola! We ate at Peg Leg Petes on Mother’s Day! Love that place! I love Volatile sandals and haven’t ever ordered any off of Amazon. Will have to check them out! Hope you are having a great week!
