WOW, that is all I can say about the women’s marathon. I absolutely love this picture of Kara and Shalane, they gave their all and I love how good of friends they are. It doesn’t matter how fast you run the marathon, I think we all feel the same way as their facial expressions are showing they feel after 26.2 miles.
We got hooked up last night with TWO dinners. I had another brother in town yesterday (3 brothers visited in the last 3 weeks, I am sure it is just because they know we are about to move) that had to leave by 6 and so we had dinner at 3:30. Dinner at 3:30 is actually really nice, it gives you plenty of time to get hungry again for another meal later and even more time to have dessert. My mom made her Russian Chicken, brown rice and veggies. I basically drench the entire plate in that sauce.
Second dinner happened a few hours later. The other day when we were buying the watermelon and walking out of Costco one of the employees couldn’t get over how fun it was that Billy holding the watermelon like that looked just like my stomach. I tried to convince Billy that it really does actually feel like I am holding a watermelon all day long and that is why I need 3 times as much candy and hourly back rubs but he wouldn’t buy it.
Too bad watermelons don’t have belly buttons that stick out two inches because then we really would look like twinners.
Another delicious Costco find that we brought to dinner were those croissants that are the size of a poodles head. I have deemed croissants the best pregnancy food because they are so light and airy that they don’t make you feel full at all so that you can eat as many as socially acceptable and feel great.
One of Billy’s best friends told us that he wanted to make his ‘summer salad’ for us before we moved. I have brought up the conversation (I even tape recorded it so that I had hard evidence) almost every other day because I knew I would love this salad.
The salad had strawberries, chicken, almonds, fresh parmesan and a raspberry vinaigrette, it was even better than I imagined. He also made homemade limeade and we drank it out of mason jars, I felt like we were living a Pinterest scene.

Costco lovers: What was the last thing that you bought from Costco? Do you ever buy stuff from there other than food?
How often do you get on Pinterest? Ever made a recipe from Pinterest? How did it turn out?
What are some of your favorite salad toppings lately?
Ever ran a race in the rain like the Women’s Olympic Marathon yesterday?
-When I ran the Utah Valley Marathon a few years ago it was snowing at the start and then rained for almost the entire race.
