A few miles done Monday morning followed by a pump class (look at me already chipping away at one of my November goals… I just had Brooke pat me on the back).
It is Curly’s birthday today (!!) so Brooke and I took her out yesterday to start the celebrations.
We picked her up after school and then she chose our activities for the day—> Cafe Rio for lunch, an arcade and then hot chocolate and the Boxcar Children show (yeah, the books are much better) at my house.
I have my nieces and nephews choose out their favorite cereal for their birthday breakfast. Marshmallows is always the best way to start the day. She won the mustache at the arcade and was extremely excited about it.
Dinner for one—> Brooke took a crazy late nap and my stomach was growling at 5:15 so I had a turkey burger salad and sweet potato all topped with thai peanut dressing from TJ’s. I even got out a placemat because I was feeling fancy.
A little while later we went to a fiesta with the crew. This reminded me of the time that I ran 13.1 miles with a piñata head.
Afterwards Megan made us a big patch of popcorn and Brooke fed it to everyone.
And my favorite moment from yesterday was when Brooke was playing in her room and then ran into the bathroom when I was getting ready and hugged my legs and looked at me and said, “Mama, I missed you.” My heart actually exploded a little.
