My run was done in two segments yesterday:
Segment 1(5 miles) done on the treadmill while Andrew was out getting our tires changed. Then when he got home I had to be somewhere so I pressed pause on my run.
Segment 2 (5 miles) done later once I got back home to finish on the treadmill. I started a book and I got really into it and wanted to keep reading—> The Couple Next Door. I don’t know why I love suspenseful/mystery type books as much as I do, but I get hooked.
Both segments started with a little stroll on the treadmill with Brooke. She loves being included for her chance to run before I start.
Andrew’s scene once he got home. For part of the time I am running Brooke will make me a card and then hand it up to me before she moves onto the next card.
This one was a Christmas card. She is getting in a lot of practice with her scissors at school (and now at home) and I am crossing every finger and toe she does not decide to cut her hair all crazy with scissors. I am pretty sure 75% of my nieces have done that over the years.
Sometimes Brooke asks me to show her pictures of when she was a baby. She saw one where she was swaddled and requested it. She was able to get out of it in 2 seconds so I guess I have lost my touch.
Currently on a bagel kick over here. Throw some eggs and sautéed squash/zucchini on top and you are good to go!
Andrew had a nice friend join him for his lunch.
After lunch my sweet mom stopped by for a second because she had some things for us to take on our road trip today. I think the below sticker book with all of her favorites will keep her entertained for quite some time today.
The trail mix that she brought for me will keep me entertained for hours too. You just can’t go wrong with trail mix and this combination looks perfect.
After that we went to do some errands.
Two things about this below picture:
1. Their little bond melts me. Brooke is Andrew’s little shadow some days and she just can’t get enough.
2. Andrew is currently taking one of those survey things that people from unknown numbers call to ask. I don’t think I have ever participated in one of those but Andrew answers those survey questions and is so nice on the phone about them.
We took Brooke to see the movie Moana . Oh my goodness, best kid’s movie I have seen in forever. Andrew and I both agreed that we will have to buy this one when it comes out because it was so good and of course Brooke loved it too!
I don’t think Brooke has stepped on a crack since late 2015.
After the movie as we were driving home we noticed the car in front of us was swerving all over the place and almost had a serious head on collision (along with a few other almost accidents) so we called the cops. We waited throughout the whole process and waited in the car to fill out statements (he was arrested).
Brooke fell asleep in the car so I got to work on my lesson for church as we waited and on the Hot Tamales that Megan gave me.
By the time we got home we were starving for real food and Andrew ordered pizza (we had a free coupon even… isn’t that the best?!) and it was delicious. Pineapple and pepperoni is our normal order.
When it is too cold to work on your bike outside, you do it inside while watching Home Alone.
Also, I was laughing when I saw this online the other night and Andrew looked over and told me that this CliffsNotes would still not be long enough hahaha:
What are you currently reading? What is your favorite genre of book to read?
Favorite trail mix combination?
What was your weekend run?
Last movie that you saw in the theater? How was it?
