HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I hope your weekend starts ASAP! I’m going to get in a run first thing (sometimes I can’t remember what it was like way back when to not start my day with a run) and then we shall see where the day takes us.
Let’s chat for a bit about yesterday!
Just curling a few of pieces of Brooks hair while she ate some pistachios:) We didn’t have much time so snacking and her hair had to be combined.
My family did a few family pictures yesterday. Besides at weddings… it has been quite some time since our last family photo. I think I was 10 in the picture below.
THANK YOU to the amazing Lindsey for doing these, her photos always make me so happy.
She even brought me an apple fritter. She is the best of the best.
Brooke was caught red handed eating snow.
I changed into sweatpants when I got home and then the kids and I were off to do a few errands. One of them being Target, our happy place.
Walked by these and you already know my feelings about Oreos…. I can’t imagine this flavor being super delicious but I could be wrong. Has anyone tried them?
Pretty happy about the fact that it feels like it is getting darker later on in the day!!!
While we were out the sweetest police officer made Knox’s day by stopping to say hello to him and he gave him a badge. Knox was pretty shy during the experience but it was all he could talk about the rest of the day.
ANDREW FOUND SOME SWEET POTATOES in our cupboard and so our S.P. drought was finally over. Baked slices in the oven and added some cheese, chicken, guac and tomatoes. Corn on the cob on the side. My ideal meal right here:
Our family night for the week (we do this every Thursday… lesson, activity, treat) involved playing a new game, Candy Land. For the lesson we just talked about how to be a good friend.
The Yonana machine was a success. We put in frozen bananas and other frozen fruit that we had in the freezer and the kids both loved it.
I hope you get in a great run this Friday. Friday is usually when my motivation is lowest but for some reason I’m really craving a good run right about now.
PS my brother showed this to me and I couldn’t stop laughing… I hope you enjoy it too (the last one is my favorite):
If you have a running accomplishment you want to share then please send them on into me—> firstname.lastname@example.org
Madeline!!! “On Saturday, I ran in the Greenville Health System Half Marathon. I tend to start out flying out of excitement and my third mile was 6:54 (fast for me), I was able to level out and run a strong race on a beautiful course with a finishing time of 1:33:01 (7:06 average)! This was a three minute PR to the half marathon I ran in November and shockingly I placed 2nd in my 20-24 age group of 79 runners and 23rd/746 overall females! I was shocked and so thrilled!”
Bridget!!! “My mom will be running her 12th consecutive Boston Marathon this year and on this occasion will be representing Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She has set a goal to raise $15,000 for this amazing cause- which helps to fund cures, research, and ensure access to treatment for blood cancer patients. My mom is an oncologist, and an avid marathoner, so both of these pursuits are fueled by her passion. She is always training for another race- has run downs of marathons, half marathons, and smaller races, and is such an inspiring doctor, woman, mother, and one of my best friends.
I was hoping that for those who wish to, they will consider joining me in helping my mom raise these vital funds through a donation at the link HERE!!!! Thank you in advance for your generous support!”
What are your feelings on Peeps? What about the combination with Oreos?
Favorite section at Target?
What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
Who has a mom that runs or has been a runner in the past?
-I specifically remember my mom and I hanging out while she ran on the treadmill when I was a little girl and we would watch The Price is Right together.
