The first time that ESPN has ever been on at our apartment:
Brooker and I started our Sunday off right by watching the New York City Marathon! It reminded me about how badly I want to do this marathon again. 2015?
Wilson Kipsang took first with a 2:10:59 for the men and Mary Keitany took first for the women with a 2:25:07. The women’s finish was intense… 2nd place came in just three seconds after Mary.
Meb came in 4th and I loved these two things about him:
1. So basically he is flying as he runs.
2. His stride is longer than his height… he is 5’5”. This also contributes to my belief that he pretty much flies as he runs.
I baked/cooked more yesterday than I did the entire year I lived at my parents’ house.
Amanda and I (and a few other peeps) made a meal for 100+ people for after church. Prego definitely helped us out but we added some fun spices and things to make it a little more interesting.
Before church Brooke and I baked pretty much the whole kitchen. Pumpkin and chocolate chip bread, cornbread (without eggs because my dad is allergic to them) and….
MY FIRST EVER PIE CRUST. I have had this on my to do list (I know, pretty intense to do list that I have) for some time now and I finally gave it a try.
My baking partner loves transferring flour from one container to another as I bake. She is always pretty proud of herself for ‘helping mama’ in the kitchen.
And because it was a rainy and cold day…
My mom made her taco soup and we all lived happily ever after.
