Our Friday night consisted of our usual clubbing until 3 a.m.
Okay, that is a lie, I don’t remember the last weekend that wasn’t revolved around delicious food, little kids and some form of television watching. Don’t be too jealous of our crazy party animal ways.
I was talking to runner friends yesterday and we were discussing how different Friday nights are for runners vs. non-runners. For a runner the whole night is based around eating the exact perfect food for fueling their run in the early a.m., hydrating like a mad woman, going to bed before the sun does and making sure that all of your long run gear is organized and ready to go. We are strange people aren’t we? I am not going to lie, I am enjoying staying up way past my ‘marathon training’ bedtime.
Billster and I drove up to Draper (where my aunt lives) and were served some crazy awesome lasagna, salad with avocado and caesar dressing and a side of pineapple and strawberries.
After dinner we walked on over to the park and I kissed my aunt’s pet polar bear,
and then we got a picture with almost everyone looking.
I ended up with mud all over my pants (at least it will mask the smell of the salsa and tuna that I spilled on them earlier).
Little punk children that were playing at the park at the same time we were decided to put mud on the slide as we were going down.
Why I outta……..
Other exciting events of our park extravaganza: Billy ended up bleeding onto the baseball bat (he is not making an obscene gesture at you all, I promise he is just trying to show how hurt he is),
because the 8 year old’s baseball skills were a little advanced for him. Don’t worry, no stitches…..just a Dorra the Explorer Band-Aid. Pretty sure they decided to bat up on the big toy because it made it easier to hit us with the ball while we were sitting on the bench.
All night long I begged the littlest one to come cuddle with me. Each time she responded with a big fat no.
Finally, when her mom said it was bed time she sprinted over and nuzzled her way onto me……..she is a smart little girl and knows that I would be able to talk her mom into letting her stay up just a few more minutes for quality snuggle time.
Um, yeah….those are 3d freckles all over my face, I promise.
While Billy was watching the Laker’s game the girls made cheesecake. Sit down before you read the next sentence…..we didn’t eat any. I know the math doesn’t add up, 3 girls that love dessert skipped it and decided to save it for Mother’s Day.
I was actually physically TOO tired to eat it. I would have eaten it if Billy would have spoon fed it to me as I lay down like I begged him to but he thought that was a little too far. I reminded him that it was our anniversary week, and then he reminded me that I asked him to help me lower my sugar intake and handed me an avocado instead. Now that is love.
Favorite cheesecake or cheesecake toppings?
-I LOVE Cheesecake Factory snickers cheesecake. For normal cheesecake please pile my plate 6 inches high with raspberries.
Favorite game or thing to do at the park?
-Water fights are the best. Also, tag on the big toy when the ground is ‘hot lava’ so you can’t ever step on it….that game is intense.
Are you a big dog person, a little dog person or a no dog person?
-I think I love BOTH so much but if I had to choose….a BIG dog (not a polar bear size but more like a lab size).
Who is racing? Who is watching races this weekend?
-We are going to watch the Provo City Marathon before I teach spin in the morning!
