Friday Favorites

Welcome back to another edition of Friday Favorites with Allen, where I take a look at some of the awesome things in my world!

  • 10 Year Anniversary Present: As you may know, last Friday was our 10 year anniversary. While Rachel and I have a huge two week trip planned for late August/early September, we still wanted to get each other a little something. Rachel ended up getting me a gift from etsy, which I absolutely loved. It uses old license plates to “spell out” our anniversary date. The traditional 10 year anniversary gift is tin or aluminum, so this was a cool gift on multiple levels. She specifically requested Alabama and Georgia be included, as those are the two states in which we’ve lived together. Check it out below…


  • runDisney New Balance Shoes: Every year since 2013, runDisney and New Balance team up to release a character or ride themed running shoe. Last year, they released the Dumbo Vazee Pace, which is a neutral running shoe. I tried them on at the expo last year and really liked them, but ultimately decided to pass on them. Lucky for me, they ended up at the New Balance Outlet a few weeks ago at a significant price reduction. We ended up heading to the outlets so I could pick up a pair for myself. I really like them!
  • Hillbilly Elegy: One of my February goals is to read 2 new books. I picked up my first book last night at Barnes and Noble…Hillbilly Elegy. I’ve been hearing great things about this book, so I’m excited to read it.


  • 13.1 Mile Training Run: Rachel ended up taking off today from work. I typically take Fridays off since I work on Sundays, so we decided to go for a long run. Rachel hadn’t been able to get in her half marathon run since the January WDW Half Marathon was cancelled, so she suggested we run 13.1 today. I am always up for running with the wife. We had a great run this morning and she was able to knock out her 13.1 miles. I was so proud of her! Only 3 more weeks till we run the Princess Half Marathon at Disney in late February. Rachel has wanted to run this one for several years now!
