I LOVE WATCHING HER RUN. Love it.
Sunday morning walk group:
Our Sunday morning started bright and early. Andrew left for the hospital so Brooke and I spent time discussing the dreams she had followed by her telling me the order of rides she wants to go on next time we go to Disneyland.
Brooke asked if she could ride her bike so we took it to the trail for her to ride and I walked. These are her second pair of running shoes and I am guessing my 4 trillionth pair of running shoes!
I love my Revels very much and Brooke is still a Nike girl (mainly because we have an outlet right by us where we can find them for super cheap).
This girl LOVES animals. She said her favorite part of the bike ride was all the puppies she saw along the way.
We came home to breakfast. Kodiak Power Cakes are back in the mix again for me.
Later on we were off to church together!
For the first hour of our church we go to a meeting called Sacrament meeting and then for the second and third hour the kids go to primary. I go to Sunday school for an hour and then I work with the youth in my ward (what we call our church groups) for the third hour. During the second hour I was going through Brooke’s journal and I found this and yep, the tears started flowing like crazy.
I was craving some type of comfort food for dinner and this Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder did the trick. I’ve made it before and it is so good! You use almond milk instead of cream too and the roasted cauliflower pieces (roasted in olive oil and garlic) is amazing. I ate after church at 5 because I can’t wait any longer to eat dinner. Andrew had some when he got home from the hospital (and I had another bowl).
More peaches of course! Random but I didn’t injure my finger, my gel nail started coming off and I hoped the band aid would save it, it didn’t.
After our peaches we decided to make cookies for Andrew but selfishly for us too;)
These snickerdoodles were AMAZING. You don’t have to use cream of tartar and they are thick and chewy and way too good.
Time for a few Monday Matters before I let you go today:)
*Michelle shared this awesome race with me… this might be the race that will get Andrew to run with me again;)
*Girls trip officially starts in 3 days… food, swimming, more food and talking.
*On Monday’s I’m going to start a thing where I share the top 3 most popular posts (according to analytics) from the previous week just in case you missed out:
***Rickee is a teacher in my area that just got engaged… instead of registering for wedding gifts, she created a Donors Choose (like gofundme but for education-related things) project seeking 600 coats for the homeless kids in her school district. She is pretty amazing… DONATE HERE!!!
*WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW:
*Brooke and I officially have 80% of all of the lyrics memorized from the Leap soundtrack due to her need to have it always playing. She told me this is her favorite movie ever just in case you are wondering whether or not your kids would like the movie.
*I hope your Labor Day is a great one and that you get some time outdoors!
Ever done a virtual type race? Which one?
Do you have the day off? What are your plans?
When you make pancakes or waffles at home… do you have a mix that you normally use or do you make a certain recipe?
Soda people (the above picture has soda cans and it made me wonder)… what is your favorite soda? Coke vs Pepsi?
