**Happy Monday! I hope your Monday has been a good one so far. We are leaving this frozen tundra of Utah to go to HAWAII for a week! Andrew and I decided a few months ago that for our birthdays this year, we just wanted to do a family trip together instead of presents. We found crazy cheap tickets, we are staying with some family/friends and they have a car for us to use so we are all set to go. I’m excited to trade in the snow running for a bit and see what the sun looks like again because I have almost forgotten.
**We stayed at Andrew’s parents house so we could get to the airport quick this morning. We snuck out for a run first thing while the kids were asleep. I’m very happy that he is game for early 19 degree runs with me… even though he wore SHORTS and no gloves. I seriously do not understand how he doesn’t freeze but he said he felt great. This was one of those runs where I felt chilled to the bone from the wind by the end of the 7 miles.
**Mountains way far away out there… I love running where there is a whole lot of nothing.
**We had eggs and pancakes and then we were off for the airport. The kid’s each have backpacks full of stuff to attempt to keep them entertained on this long flight.
**Knox’s favorite way to travel.
**We found out our flights are delayed 4+ hours so we went on a lot of walks.
**And got our sunglasses ready for our trip.
**Yeah, we were bored for a while ha.
**Ready to GO!!!!!
**There needs to be water fountains for water bottles everywhere. Thank you SLC airport.
**Monica nailed it with this one. I’m so glad that others agree with me on how awful Olives are:)
**Doesn’t matter if people are playing with him or not… Monopoly is life.
**Ever run some sort of PLUNGE race during the winter? I cannot even imagine jumping into the lake as a part of a race but it turns out people do it…
**Andrew is the constant jungle gym.
**Sometimes I find Beretta sleeping/hanging out like this. Body on the carpet and head on the hard surface… I don’t get it.
**Just proud of her MOM sign that she put on the wall. NBD.
**A picture from a few weeks ago but it makes me happy.
**Just in case you have ever wondered about which donut you are… you can find out here.
**My mom told me that she drools every time she sees Chip cookies on my blog but they don’t deliver to where she lives so we brought them over to her instead. My mom gave them a 10/10 rating and she doesn’t exaggerate about food items like I do so you can truly trust her opinion.
Ever been to Oahu before? Any recommendations?
-I went to BYU Hawaii but that was almost ten years ago… it has been a long time since I have been here!
What are your feelings on olives? Andrew loves them… I don’t ever want to eat one for the rest of my life.
Have a water bottle that you love? What brand is it? Anyone else use a hydroflask? I nearly have a heart attack anytime I think I lose it because I love it so much.
What was the temperature for your run today?
