What better way to start your day of putting a house together/renovations than with a morning run together? We both couldn’t find our garmins for our run but I’m guessing I just finished up the week with a total of 47ish miles. A little lower than normal but I’m happy those miles even happened with everything we’ve accomplished this week with the house.
I’m actually thinking about dropping down to 5 days a week of running because when I have done that in the past during marathon training my body was very happy and I had my favorite marathon ever (St. George Marathon 2 years ago:) I felt like it just worked for me, there were no close calls with any injuries and I felt more rested with 5 days of running a week. I’ll try it out next week and report back. I kind of want to switch one my normal days of running for a day of strength training rather than just trying to squeeze in a few minutes of strength after my runs?!
Finding that magic number of miles/days running each week is the best.
We then said goodbye to our apartment, turned in our keys and ate a muffin for breakfast.
A few of you asked what Brooke thinks of her room… she is in absolute heaven over here. I think her ‘fancy’ chandelier is her favorite part of the whole room. Whenever people come over to visit, she guides them straight back to her room to show it off.
One of Andrew’s absolute favorite places to eat is In-N-Out so we grabbed the good stuff before a day of errands.
Most important errand we did—> we picked up a million groceries so we can FINALLY EAT AT HOME. I cannot wait. Grilled chicken salads and watermelon are on the menu today.
She is quite a good lil’ helper:
After Costco my sister and her family came over to check out the set-up.
My sister helped us figure out the layout of our furniture (she really needs to be an interior decorator).
Yep, Costco for the 2nd time in one day because we realized we reallllllly wanted one of their rugs for the family room.
And then Home Depot because what would our weekend be without some time spent there. Brooke has been bringing her Dr. case with her everywhere… ya never know when you are going to need a plastic stethoscope.
We sure are lucky to have him.
We grabbed a ceiling fan for our room because I LOVE LOVE LOVE sleeping with one on.
Not to be cheesy or anything but this house thing is kind of a big deal for me and the Brookers. We’ve loved where we have lived before but now we really feel like we are at home. It’s just nice to have somewhere we will be for awhile (instead of moving every year:) that has a yard, that we can all make our own and stability because we’ve been all over the place ever since she was born.
SHE TURNS FOUR NEXT WEEK!?!?
We had another late night together of putting stuff together so Andrew picked these beauties up for me.
DON’T FORGET TO GET YOUR ‘BE HAPPY GO RUNNING‘ SHIRTS!!!
How many running days a week is your body happiest with?
Who else has a birthday in August? Anyone else have a birthday on the same day as Brooke (the 15th).
Are you a fan of decorating? Where are some of your favorite places to get stuff for your home?
Sour treats or chocolate or does it depend on your mood?
