Just a few more pictures from Curly’s birthday party on Sunday because our family birthday parties are a very big deal to us.
She sat there for 90 seconds (not exaggerating) with her eyes closed while making her wishes before blowing out the candles. They better all come true.
She requested a pan of brownies for her dessert. She is one of the only people on this planet that likes chocolate as much as I do.
My sister made our favorite Chicken Cream Cheese Chili, cornbread, salad and fruit. My favorite fall/winter meal.
Brooke is stoked that she is now big enough for the kids table.
And we finished off the night playing Connect 4. I love that Brooke feels like she is one of the gang. She loves being at my sister’s house.
Yesterday morning I decided to go to a pump class with Sarah instead of going running. I will be getting my body ready this month to start marathon training (round #2;) in December. Trying to get extra strong and I made it through 1/8th of the 100 pushups that the instructor wanted us to do.
We showed up in the same sweatshirt. Doesn’t get much cooler than that folks.
For lunch I went to my favorite grocery store salad bar and just bought a container of my favorite toppings (the roasted brussel sprouts were amazing) and came home and added my own lettuce and dressing because I am cheap like that (they charge by the lb). It was crazy good.
Later on I went on a nice long walk with my sister and Brooke. I have NO idea how I used to run with the jogging stroller. I couldn’t believe how out of breath I was walking up the hill pushing Brooke… so I made my sister push her up the rest of the way up.
For dinner I had grilled chicken and vegetables and because I had been way too healthy all day I got out the brownie/marshmallow sundae to eat while watching an episode of Revenge before bed. Living the dream;)
How many pushups can you do in a row? Do you do pushups on your knees or toes?
Who runs with a jogging stroller?!? (We all need to clap for those that do:)
Would you rather strength train on your own or in a class?
How many candles were on your last birthday cake/pan of brownies?
