It is Friday!!! Let’s start off with some of our favorite things right now and then we will catch up with my long run and food on Thursday!
*WE GOT OUR WEDDING PICTURES BACK FROM LINDSEY ORTON!!! I will have the entire post up (along with 600 pictures) on Monday if you want to check it out!
*Our family has been going to town on these this week. I love it when Andrew goes to Costco on his own because he brings home all sorts of new things for us to try and 102% of the time I end up loving what he brings home. I guess it’s kind of hard to not love something at Costco though.
*Good thing we have the perfect bowls to consume all of our cereal together! (General Mills sent these to us… THANKS!!!)
This Mrs. thing is sure fun.
*Beretta loves Andrew a crazy amount and I love it when she sits like this while he pets her haha!
*Sports bras that make me happy—>Frontrunner Racer Sports Bra (the red one)—> I’m in love for a few reasons: seamless fabric—> reduce chafing, LOVE the ombre effect, the molded cups (they are sewn in) gives great shape and awesome support and it is a super soft fabric against your skin! I’ve never tried a sports bra shaped like this one… I’m a fan and I’ll probably buy 4 more because I use too many old sports bras. The AnyDay Bra is made to be a t-shirt bra + performance bra in one:) It is versatile enough for during the day and then also when you need it to preform! It also has molded cups and a super soft brush band against that is up against your body and some nice convertible straps.
*This Jimmy Eat World song that just came out.. I love running to it. I am pretty sure I listened to them at least twice a day all throughout high school… ehhh and college. We are kind of wanting to hit up their tour in Europe this year;)
*We put some wedding money together and purchased something extremely important in life… I’ve been borrowing my mom’s blender for the last who knows how long. It was time to finally get our own and we are loving this one… in the 24 hours that I’ve had it I have made approximately 6 smoothies with it.
*I was tagged in this post and I find more truth in this below image/text than I should:
*The snaps that Andrew send me tell me that he runs for the same reason.
LONG RUN TALK!!! My Thursday started off with 18.06 (hey, every .01 counts when you get up in those double digits;) miles! Josse joined me for the first 12 (she has a race on Saturday so she didn’t want to overdo it) and then I finished up on my own. I am pretty sure the last 5 miles consisted only of me dreaming about getting back to my car to put on lip gloss. My lips were so chapped, I couldn’t think of anything else. Andrew is still amazed over how many times a day I apply chapstick or lip gloss… I can’t stop.
We did a different route than we usually do, Josse had some great stories for me and my plantar fasciitis is feeling great ever since I stopped sleeping on my stomach. I really think that is what was causing my feet problems—> pointing them all night long will do that to ya.
I have had a slight head cold so the run didn’t feel super great but I’m just guessing that all of the hard runs mean that marathon day will feel amazing.
There is only time for maybe one more 20 and 22 miler before the race and then TAPER TIME. How does marathon training feel like it just flies by sometimes? I swear I just started getting into training for St. George.
And then it was onto kid time. Those little faces have my heart. I’m sure loving how life has worked out for us.
*We set out to return some shoes for Andrew and I found these two showing off their sweet dancing moves.
*I wish you could hear their little conversations, it is hilarious. This photo was taken mid-discussion about what is better between pretzel bites and classic pretzels at Pretzel Time. They both have great debating skills thus far.
*Andrew and I made some dinner together… you can watch the video here. We talk about all of the most random things you can think of from our next trips to kids to jobs to injuries to running to kids to how to get through a divorce etc.
*We FaceTimed with his parents too and Andrew was laughing pretty hard. The head tilt back while laughing is always a good sign.
*And then the best time of the day=
Are you a chapstick or lip gloss person? Anyone else obsessed with it like I am?
