Baretta is officially very familiar with every Disney princess and their stories because of Brooke. She should be very thankful.
Brookie had a cough yesterday morning when she woke up so we decided to keep her home for most of the day. We got a whole lot done and my hair for the day was just killing it. BUT I did get the entire kitchen organized, cleaned and put together which felt pretty amazing.
At about 4 pm we were wasted and fell asleep while watching the Olympics and I woke up to Ms. Brooke jumping on me. The best way to wake up.
I actually don’t know how she went almost four years of her life without a pup.
My personal favorite part of the house:
Andrew loves to grill and I love to eat grilled food. Bbq chicken, zucchini and squash with some corn bread, avocado and berries. Our first real meal at home (at the counter… we get a table in about a week).
We made sure to get in some serious bubble time.
And then a walk. Brooke picked out her rain boots for the occasion.
And a girl and her dog and rain boots.
We got home and got to work on some Oreo milkshakes (can you tell we are really happy to have a kitchen again…).
And then we watched the Olympics pretty much the rest of the day.
I LOVE watching tennis, swimming and gymnastics but obviously, I’m most excited to watch the marathon (women’s on 8/14 and men’s on 8/21).
Two random things I read the other day—> 1886 was the year that the first Olympic Marathon was held… it was 24.8 miles long! The winners of the Olympic Trials (Amy and Galen) both won $80,000 there!
I’m so excited to watch Meb, Galen, Jared (he lives near me!!!), Shalane, Desiree and Amy!
PS I met Meb a few years back and when I told him how incredible he was for running such a CRAZY fast marathon he told me that I’m the incredible one… because I am out there on my feet for way longer than him and he’s already showered and eating breakfast by the time I’m done… So really I’m the real winner;)
It’s our 1 month anniversary today! We are going to celebrate by going up the canyon and going to my friend in the pink tank’s wedding. I am so so happy for her!
What are your favorite Olympic events to watch?
If you could choose one event to participate in (and be REALLY good at it)… what would it be?
What is one of your goals for running this week?
-To have a goooooooood long run. We won’t be running a ton next weekend so the long run will be really important this week.
