A girl just needs a….

I have no idea where she got her broccoli obsession from?!  Brooke was crying about something random and then as soon as I asked her if she wanted some broccoli she stopped crying and got to work.

Brooke had a play date but she was not interested in any hugging.  She is going to be a heartbreaker.

The weather told us that it was necessary that we spend the rest of the afternoon and early evening at the park.  

My ‘I’m going to wear these every day during the spring’ shoes came yesterday (and that made my day).  They are on sale here!

We ended up staying at the park until way past our normal dinner time so we needed something fast to eat.  We went to Cafe Rio and I was going to get my usual salad but every now and then a girl just needs a big container of nachos topped with 1/2 a cup of guacamole.

And if your Costco has these popsicles you really need to get them.  Had a strawberry one and loved it.

Once again I proved to myself that I really should just stick to running by losing terribly at Nintendo at my friend’s house.

SO I definitely just bought those shoes because of this post. I need some good walk around summer shoes. My Sperrys are awesome but they need to be rotated with something with a bit more support. Thanks for the link!

OMG so funny about the broccoli, because my 19 month old is obsessed with it too! So much so that when you ask her what her favorite food is, she ALWAYS answers with “broccoli.” And when she sniffs her blankie for comfort, we ask her what it smells like and she also replies with “broccoli.” It’s SO bizarre, eh? Like, it’s a good veggie and all, but there are better ones out there. Also, there are donuts.

Thankful it is friday. Food…… yep that about sums it up

Slept better so happy for the day.

Stressed! Trying to finish up all our taxes today, cleaning for a party we are having with neighbors tonight, trying to fit in a run outside (it’s going to be 40+) and having to work for an hour this afternoon. I think the cleaning my own house has me the most stressed. Who wants to do that when I can just run and forget all about it.

killed my WOD this morning!

i’m also really happy that it was warm enough to go outside in shorts this morning. spring is actually coming!

Ready to face the day!

I’m in a great mood. It’s Friday and I get to see my running friends Sunday at the NYC half and I bought my favorite pre run fuel on sale at the supermarket yesterday. Super pretzels! They were on sale for 2 boxes for $5.

I’m feeling slightly sad that it’s my last day of March Break, but slightly excited to go back to work at the same time! My little boy (17 months) has an obsession with broccoli as well! How strange!

I am: FEELING EXCITED for R’N’R’ HALF!!! That was hard to write in 5 words or less because of the long name of the race haha. The rock ‘n’ roll half in DC is tomorrow!!

And can I hang out with you?? Your day looked like so much fun. And Brooke’s clothes are cuter than mine ;) Have a great weekend!

Those nachos. Omg. I need them ASAP!

Reply

The little broccoli lover is adorable. Fun fact: when I was young, my favorite food was broccoli! Above pizza and all else. I only liked it cooked though, not raw like Brooke!

Reply

Wow those nachos looked amazing!

Ready.For.The.Weekend

Had a good run last night, half day at work today, taking the kids to the zoo today. Should be a pretty good day with some rest and relaxation this weekend.

I love that pic of Brooke eating the broccoli with the tear in her eye. She is so sweet.

Today I am tired.

P.S. I am running a Pro Compression Marathon sock giveaway @ http://wp.me/p4fmQC-68

My mood is EXCITED because I’m moving today! I had a great run last night that pumped me up and gave some good endorphins and energy which is good because I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me!

Brooke is adorable, but that tear rolling down her face breaks my heart! You are lucky she’s already obsessed with veggies, got a good kid there! :)

In Love with Brooke’s headband – and the way she pulls it off!

Jealous that she LOVES broccoli (I have to choke it down!)

Euphoric (or maybe tired) after my 5am alarm and 13.5k run this morning!

Hungry for nachose (and guac!)

Excited for the weekend!!

Right now I am discouraged. I am training for my first marathon, and it’s just a little over 3 weeks away. Two weeks ago I ran 20 miles and felt great. Today I was supposed to do 22 miles, and that was going to be my last really long run because I would begin to taper. Well I had to stop at 20 because I was in major pain that I have never felt before in my running career. I don’t think I let my legs rest enough for this long run, but I am reminding myself I will be okay for the race when it comes!

Five words: Thrilled until Monday snow comes.

Brooke’s pants match her hair band! So cute. And I think I see a solitary tear still on her little cheek. I guess she was too busy getting the broccoli to wipe it off! What a sweetheart.

FRIDAY!! Sunny! Gotta get moving!….

Got off work early so I have a couple free hours before I pick up the girls…. The sun is shining, it’s beautiful outside, I should really go for a run, but I’m EXHAUSTED from a long week and I just want to sit on the couch and watch food network… Maybe I’ll do a little lounging and a little running :)

Reply

Pretty comfortable considering I’m pregnant. :)

I wish my kids ate broccoli like that! Brooke has good taste. Broccoli is the best. I love those shoes but the colour wouldn’t work for me – the blue ones look perfect.

Lazy, Happy, Relaxed, Thoughtful, Peaceful

Have a great weekend.

Sometimes parenting is stressful so today my joy is a little down. Life goes on. I still have three healthy amazing kids that are strong, smart, beautiful and healthy. In the grand scheme of life I hope I can keep that in perspective. Today my five words are:
1. sad
2. angry
3. grieving
4. brokenhearted
5. confused
Thank you for the Brooke Sweetness with her broccoli! That child is so cute.

Hi Janae, it’s my first time commenting but I’ve been a reader for a few months now! You’ve actually inspired me to start my own running blog (I’ve been running for a few years). I’m focusing on post-baby marathon training for now.

Love her matching leggings and headband! Funny the things our kids love. For my guys, it’s peas! Which is great since they’re so easy to have on hand. Those nachos looking so good! I’ve seen a few nacho pics going around lately, so I think I need to have some soon!
