Bangs Friend is training for her first half marathon and she is rocking it. I love running with her because we get to talk and talk and talk and it is extra fun to be there with her when she accomplishes new personal distance records. Yesterday’s distance record for her was the 7 miles that we did together at an average of an 8:06 pace.
After our run I came home and made Billy do my 8 minute arms video with me. I wanted to show off to him that I can do 30 seconds worth of push-ups on my knees. Why is running so much more fun than any other form of exercise?
Webster’s Dictionary defines going to brunch as: ‘The greatest thing in the whole wide world and the foods you will eat at brunch will be your favorite foods because they involve all sorts of sweet carbs.’
We drove on over to Palo Alto to go to a little place called Tootsies.
Our brunching best buddies. Remember the day when I flew to California, Billy started law school, we were staying at some friend’s house because we didn’t have an apartment, I went into labor and then I had Brooke the next day?
We were staying with this good friend during that crazy time of our life!
Brooke could not take her eyes off of Ernie. He really is the best dog. PS in Provo (where I am from) there is now a business where you can rent a puppy for an hour!?! If I can’t get a puppy yet you better believe I will be asking to rent Ernie all of the time.
I hung out with Brooke while Billy went in and ordered and all I told him was that I wanted pancakes but he obviously went above and beyond my request…
And my ricotta pancakes. I don’t know if it was just the placebo effect but just knowing that these had a special ingredient like ricotta in them made them taste like the best pancakes ever. I also had some eggs and potatoes.
Afterwards we went to the mall to walk around for a little bit because we really wanted be in the same building as the rest of Northern California…. Memorial Day sales brought everyone to the mall.
Billy will be taking the patent bar this summer so he still has to study even though it is summer (that should be illegal) but once he got home we dug out our chow mein leftovers and watched movies. My kind of day.
