My niece was clearly very happy that I came over to babysit yesterday. Actually they really do love it when I am in charge because I don’t make them do their chores. My sister is always thrilled when she gets home.
I am still trying to convince my sister to get a high chair for Brooke at her house since we are there so often but until then…
I did what any good babysitter would do and attacked the pantry. The three C’s… Cereal, Cheez-Its and Chicago Mix popcorn (caramel popcorn and cheddar cheese popcorn all in the same bag mixed up together—> try it).
By the time I got home and had a chance to eat dinner I was starving and the only thing I had patience to make was toast with almond butter and bananas. Remember back in the day when I actually made real dinners? Yeah, that was fun.
At least Brooke ate enough vegetables for the both of us.
The usual ‘put Brooke to bed and make one of my friends hang out with me at night’ occurred. Candice and I both kind of loved this flavor and I am sure it will help fuel her as she runs the St. George Marathon this Saturday.
I have two very exciting email excerpts to share with you.
1. I finally signed up for CIM. It is official now. I am running it. I was 99% sure up until yesterday that I was going to run it and I didn’t want to actually sign up until I knew I would be at that starting line for sure but now I am sure. And I am more than ready to get that PR.
2. Probably the most exciting email I have ever received in my life:
Once upon a time I entered a raffle to win the Boston Marathon Treadmill. I would have never in a million years thought that I would actually win it but I did. Answer to my prayers especially because I no longer have my old treadmill and I have really wanted the Boston Marathon Treadmill. It will come in 2-3 weeks which is perfect timing… Utah will be getting really cold and I am positive that there will be many freezing mornings this winter where my new treadmill and I will spend a lot of time together. I already have its spot ready.
Bangs Friend, my sis, Brooke and BIL were all with me when I got the email that I won and I may have been freaking out just a little bit.
Are you a milk drinker?
Have you had any exciting news recently? Please share!
What is the next race that you are signed up for? Who will be at CIM?!?
Who has a treadmill? What kind? Who wants to come over and use my treadmill?
