Answer to question from the last post about how far the average professional midfielder soccer player runs in one game: EIGHT MILES….isn’t that awesome, especially considering that most of that is SPRINTING. They are hardcore.
Workout: 7 miles on the treadmill. I was going to go to the gym to cross train this morning but as I walked by my treadmill to head out the door it literally started calling my name and I couldn’t resist. I will cross train tomorrow, I will cross train tomorrow….unless I feel like running:)
Snack of the day (in addition to string cheese(S), pretzels and wheat thins):
Sunshine Chips from Nature Box (sweet potato, squash, taro, carrot and green bean chips). Veggies and chip/crunchy/salt craving satisfied in one snack:)
Starting in just a few (okay, okay 5) months I will be making some new little family holiday traditions, stuff like that gets me beyond excited. I think you know if you have been reading longer than 2 posts that family and spending time with them is the most important thing in the world to me. I started thinking about the traditions we did as kids around Easter time…..
1. We ALWAYS colored hardboiled eggs the night before Easter using PAAS coloring and stickers.
Now for the grandkids easter egg hunt they fill up the plastic eggs with money and candy, hence why sometimes I push them out of the way to get to them first. I am ashamed.
(He is just acting really sad for the picture, I promise. I am his favorite)
2. We would wake up on Easter morning and eat ORANGE ROLLS (please tell me you have had those) while checking out our Easter baskets. They were filled with peeps, jelly beans, chocolate eggs filled with marshmallows and a giant bunny. The bigger the bunny we got each year = my parents were happy with us and we must have been good. I have no idea who this child is but his parents must really love him.
3. When we were little my mom would always make us an ‘Easter Dress’ and take 400 pictures of us in them, maybe that is why I post a million pictures of myself on the internet? When we got older she would take us shopping for a new Easter Dress. For some reason she won’t keep doing this for her 26 year old.
4. A big easter dinner of ham, 3 different potato dishes and fluffy rolls. For dessert we would have cake topped with more Easter candy (okay, I was the only one that would add candy on top of the cake). I may or may not be counting down the hours until I this week’s Sunday dinner and the awesome Easter basket Billy will be giving me (hint, hint).
If you celebrate Easter, what were some of your Easter traditions? Did you color eggs? Have an Easter egg hunt?
What was in your Easter basket?
Do you know how to sew? Did your mom ever make you your clothes?
-I do know how to sew, I used to make teddy bears, blankets, aprons and even some jumpers when I was younger.
Random question for bloggers: Do your husbands/wives/boyfriends/girlfriends read your blog?
-Yes, and he always reads the comments too:) It is fun because I can leave hints all over the place for him.
