Date night… The absolute best part of the week. Starting off marriage with two little ones is the best but it also makes us really treasure those evenings we have to go on a date together.
Four of my best friends (the girls I go on a trip with each year and we end up eating an absurd amount of donuts each time) gave me and Andrew a gift card to Sundance for our wedding. The know me way too well… Sundance is one of my all-time favorite places to go. It is only about 20 minutes away but it feels like a little getaway.
They have two restaurants up at Sundance and I always choose The Foundry Grill. The food is insane. Just a picture of our starters ha… fried brussels sprouts (I can never eat normal brussels sprouts again after eating these… the sauce is perfection) and sweet potato fries:)
For dinner we both had the ribs and then for dessert I picked up one of their 7-layer bars. One of the only acceptable desserts with nuts in my opinion.
The drive back into town was just kind of pretty.
We went straight from our fancy setting to the arcade. I’ve been telling Andrew about how good I am at air hockey (my brothers taught me how to play and all of the strategy at a very young age;) and he didn’t believe me so we decided to play.
And I won.
He believes me now;)
And moving on to Wednesday… I woke up and got 3 miles done real quick at a 9:00 average. My legs were dead after those Tuesday mile repeats. Keep the easy days easy so you can get the hard workouts in (aka I have a lot of miles to run today so I wanted to be smart:)
Brooke and Knox were reunited. It had been almost 5 days since they last saw each other and they just picked up right where they left off.
It was LINDSEY’S bday so we went to her favorite place for lunch.
And afterwards both kids insisted that I hold them. My arms almost fell off. I don’t know how Andrew does it so easily.
Andrew came home from work a bit later and Beretta and I hung out with him on the ground.
We made this dinner last week and we have thought (ehhh… and talked;) about it a lot since then. Grilled turkey burgers with a fried egg, grilled zucchini, avocado, tomatoes and lettuce. The bowl of cantaloupe was a request of Brooke’s, she could live off of that stuff. Other notable thing from dinner—> we got Knox a new spiderman plate and I think it came close to making his month;)
Always a good sign when your sandwich is almost as tall as Andrew’s head.
Brooke did a million cartwheels.
And then we were all ready for bed by 8 pm ha. Long runs the next morning will do that to ya. I’ve been nervous about this 20 miler today (because it is going to be really toasty out and because that is a heck of a long way to run;) but I was reminded on Instagram yesterday one of the best running laws (I’m really into calling things running laws these days).
Stay in the mile. Take a mile at a time. Don’t worry about the rest, just live in that mile you are running.
And that is how today will go… Josse and I are just going to go ahead and stay in the mile. We will laugh, fuel, hydrate, focus, tell stories and probably see a few random animals along the way like we always do. One mile at a time, the best way to get through the hard parts!
Any fun plans for your Labor Day weekend?
Have any running laws that you’ve found in your life?
How do you get through the really LONG runs?
Any random games that you are pretty good at? Any other lovers of air hockey?
