Early morning on the treadmill! Andrew was at the hospital so I hit the treadmill while the kids were snoozing for my classic 7 miles…
And then we were off to school and I experienced major mom guilt when I walked them inside and realized I had forgotten the theme day… pregnancy brain is real and mom guilt is even more real.
We were out and about getting things done during the afternoon!
I think I wore Knox out when he almost fell asleep on a bench… he loves trying to feel his new little sis and puts his hand on my stomach a lot.
We made it to swimming lessons too.
And then it was time for cleaning rooms, pajamas and a picnic while watching a movie.
Clearly I was really in a cooking mood… sandwiches for all.
And then I did an amazing job sitting on the couch for a long time. My energy level is 2% in the evenings.
Ended the day of eating with some popcorn and tried my hardest to stay awake until Andrew got home (he’s got a commute in addition to the 12 hour shifts)!
*My sister has been tinting her own eyebrows so I ordered the stuff she uses and she is going to teach me how to do it myself now (or maybe I’ll just go to her house once a month and have her do it;)
*I bought two dresses while we were in Vegas and I’m in love with them! My goal is to have a few dresses that work for pregnancy but also for non-pregnancy times! I got this one (they have a lot of fun colors) and this one and I am obsessed.
*11 days until THIS IS US starts up again. I cannot wait.
*My current favorite app is called MARCO POLO and it is so fun. Basically it is just video messages back and forth with people. Monica and I have quite the deep discussions over Marco Polo now.
*I was tagged in this post for the most amazing running shorts EVER. I really need these. I have a Halloween 5k I am wanting to do and these would be perfect!
*My mom sent this video to me and this is definitely a Friday Favorite! I want to watch it 10 times in a row.
*My current favorite food philosophy:)
*Brooke’s hair gets quite tangled and this stuff SAVES us. With swim lessons again this is amazing… plus it smells so good.
*Have you tried these? The perfect mint.
*A few weeks ago I asked you guys for recommendations of tanks with high necks! A few of you recommended THIS ONE (in picture with my treadmill at the top of this post) and I am in love with it. It is so soft, I want to wear it daily and only $20!
Time for your amazing race accomplishments!! You guys are incredible. If you want to be featured then send them in to [email protected]
Gabi!!! “The “Karwendel” (in Austria) is a massive mountain range of limestone, beautiful, wild and rugged, with 125 summits over 200 meters of height. Fortunately the Karwendel has been placed under protection since 1928, so there are almost no cars, only a couple of skiing lifts and just a few accesses where you can reach this nature park by car. The crossing from west to east (in one day!) took place the first time in 1969 as a sports competition. Until 1990 it attracted enthusiastic (aka ‘crazy’) hikers and trail runners who wanted to have a real tough challenge. Up to 4000 participants enrolled, that was too much for this sensitive nature reserve. After that it took 19 years until the event has been permitted again-with a limit of 2500 participants. This year the Karwendelmarsch was sold out 4 months before the start! Hikers can either choose 35k or 52k, the trail runner course has 52k, a lot of elevation gain comes along, 2300 meters in ascent! I chose the 35km and I’m very happy about my accomplishment! This year there was a new record. Johannes Klein finished in 4:07:20! This is absolutely amazing! I love this event very much and definitely will come back next year. I’ve already participated three times in the Karwendelmarsch and I must say that I’m addicted.”
Kelly!!! “I ran my first ever half marathon at the Rock ’n’ Roll Virginia Beach last weekend- Sep 3rd. Amazing course, fantastic support, and so much fun that I’ve registered for another half marathon in 6 months (and even convinced my best friend to dress up and run with me)! As a Navy veteran, I love new challenges and this is exactly what I needed to push myself out of my comfort zone! Your blog is a source of motivation and comfort… overcoming an injury so close to race day had me worried I wouldn’t be able to compete but I took time off (I feel your pain in not being able to train like I had hoped) and emerged a much calmer, healthier me. Finish time: 2:43. I started in the last corral and finished filing like #1! A number is just a number, but that was MY time, every minute of it, and I’m amazed at my own accomplishment.”
What are some of your Friday favorites?!
When was your last treadmill run? What is the longest distance you’ve ever done on a treadmill?
PS I would love to hear some of your favorite children’s books… we are doing a lot of reading over here each day for Kindergarten and we need some new books!
What is your Friday night going to involve?
