Here are ten random things for your Tuesday afternoon:
-I am obsessed with the newest addition to my room. Just need to add some pictures to the magnet board.
-Brooke was throwing a 2-year-old-mini-tantrum on Sunday (I wish I could remember what it was about) and we all just kind of ignored the tantrum and then she ran into the other room to ‘cool off’ on the couch for a few minutes by herself. So much personality in such a little body.
-I am getting so good (okay.. maybe not good but I can actually do them now) at one-legged squats that I can take a blurry selfie while I do them now.
PS don’t look too closely for grey hairs. I find about two new ones each day.
-We have been partying a little too much and Brooke fell asleep on my niece. My sister’s three kiddos are going to be the best big brother/sisters to the new little one on the way!
-Anytime we go to a store that has candles I plan on spending at least a good 15 minutes smelling candles with Brooke because it is one of her favorite things lately. Whenever she finds a good one she sprints over to me so that I can smell it too. (Extra blurry picture- I’m sorry)
-A reader sent me this picture and I need an ice cream doughnut sandwich now. I don’t know how I feel about the mint chocolate chip in the middle though… I think I would choose chocolate chip cookie dough.
-My latest thing—> Each night I write something that I am grateful for and also a thought/story/something from the day that I want to remember.
Speaking of September 2nd… Two years ago today is when my sister met Brooke (aka Spikey) for the very first time.
-I show people that I love them by baking for them.
-Every now and then I do turn down sweets. For example- today as Brooke and I were at the mall I really wanted a Cinnabon Cold Stone sundae but I decided to go to my sister’s instead and eat her nectarines from her tree.
-7 treadmill miles with the sister next to me this morning. That tempo run yesterday wore me out. Today I felt like a slug and I am pretty sure I was 75% asleep the whole time.
Brooke and I are off to go get our family pictures taken:) Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!
