Hey, I cannot thank you enough for your sweet words yesterday. It sure means a lot to me (and my family). This life is sure a good one but there are a lot of ups and downs along the way… thank goodness for family, running and sugar;) Just expect a lot of the three things that I just mentioned on the blog over the months up ahead. Once again, thank you for your support and love. We can feel it.
I’m going to share the highlights from our Saturday.
9 miles on the treadmill (it was 17 degrees outside and I did not want to mess around with that). Like usual, running does that special thing for me and it even does it on the treadmill—> I step off the treadmill thinking more optimistically and hopeful than before I got on.
Just started reading Open, an autobiography by Andre Agassi (Julie recommended it and I love her recommendations). Also, athlete’s autobiographies are always my favorites… I love reading about what makes them successful and all of the things they do and get through to be where they are with their sport.
I LOVE seeing Brooke doing her homework (what she calls anything involving letters or numbers) and her concentration levels. This girl would do coloring and crafts all day long if she could.
We had an early lunch of burrito bowls. A base of rice with corn, peppers, chicken, onions, avocado and pico. Topped with some ranch after the picture.
Brooke adjusting the necklace that she made for Andrew:
Gave Beretta some goodbye hugs before leaving.
And then we met up with the family for my nephew’s basketball game. I cannot believe how tall my nephew is these days… PS Andrew just became a Great Uncle yesterday!
Brooke loves going to these basketball games so that she can play her own version of basketball with her cousins.
My sister’s little man was out for the game.
And he continued to stay asleep during the loud buzzers, cheering and being passed around from person to person. I guess I could probably do the same thing… I did once sleep through a pretty big earthquake years ago.
We are just wanting to spend as much time with my family as possible so it was Outback together for dinner. Steak + salad + baked potato for me.
And then for the evening we went on a drive.
And to give Beretta some exercise.
It was a gorgeous night.
Also, Andrew picked these up at the store for me. The perfect 9 pm snack.
What is your Sunday going to be filled with?
