I’m pretty excited about my new favorite hoodie!!!
Now that it is getting cold again all I need is a comfy hoodie to live in all winter long. The tanks are being sold again too and the hoodies come in navy, black, grey, red, green and blue! They are all HERE!!!
They also make a great gift for any runners in your life (and a great gift for yourself too:) They will be available for the next 10 days (last day to order is Nov 9th)!
Who knows what I say when I hit the wall… but that is why I have a hoodie to apologize for me.
Our last day in California was yesterday. When I take Brooke to California I pretty much get there right before she sees her dad and and then hit the airport right after I pick her up from him. We were gone for about 50 hours total. It felt like it completely zoomed by which is always nice when I’m missing Brooke but I’m so happy to not be doing these trips alone anymore. It was so great to have Andrew and Knox.
The first thing we did Sunday morning was breakfast with one of Andrew’s friends from high school. He lives in the area so he and his girlfriend invited us over for an amazing breakfast. The table was decorated perfectly. Decorating is definitely not one of my strengths so I am always amazed by people that are so good at it.
The sweet potato and celery root hash was insanely good. I’m going to get that recipe for you asap. She has used the Whole 30 Program in the past. This was her favorite recipe from when she was doing that and she still loves making it.
It switched off between raining and complete sunshine about every 9 minutes yesterday;)
We went to church together afterwards (I don’t understand the poof my hair is doing below either) and we actually ended up going to a Spanish church service because of the time that we were able to go. Andrew understood every word and luckily I understood a little bit from the few years of Spanish I took in high school.
From there we took Knox over to the Palo Alto Children’s Museum. He used to say that he wanted to be an engineer when he grew up and now he tells us he wants to be a police officer who loves to do science labs too. This museum was PERFECT for his age and his love of science. He tells us that science is his favorite part about school too.
If I could choose one restaurant to magically make it’s way to Utah, it would be Pluto’s. They have the most beautiful salads there. When Andrew told me he was craving something fresh for our lunch, I knew just where to take him.
They have you choose your protein and then you can add up to 7 toppings. I went for grapes, roasted sweet potatoes, butternut squash, strawberries, edamame, peas and I can’t remember the last topping but it was amazing.
It started raining again so we took Knox to a movie (I fell asleep… of course) but the boys liked it.
And then we picked up Brooke!!!!!! I always feel whole again when I see that little face.
She went trick-or-treating with her dad while she was gone and brought back a banana Laffy Taffy for Knox because he loves banana flavored candy.
I do not understand banana flavored candy but the rest of my family does.
We drove back to Oakland (we fly in and out of there because the tickets are cheaper) and made sure to grab a milkshake on the way. I don’t have In-N-Out milkshakes often but whenever I do I am quickly reminded of how good they are.
And these two were right back to their normal craziness.
The flight home was actually really scary. It was the worst turbulence I have ever experienced and the pilot had to reroute us a bit to get around the storm. Brooke slept right through it and Knox thought it was a fun ride. I might not be able to get on an airplane again for a little while ha.
We finished the night off strong with some mohawk selfies on the bus.
Also, I lost my voice. It started out Saturday afternoon… I can only talk in a whisper right now. Know of any good remedies to help with this?
Do you speak any other languages?
Ever had any scary flying experiences?
Banana flavored candy—> yay or nay?
Ever done Whole 30? What was your experience with it?
