I’ve got a new BABY UPDATE—> Here!!! 37 weeks!
Happy Thanksgiving! If you are celebrating today, I hope your day is filled with your favorite people, lots of good food and a lot to be thankful for! I’m sure thankful for you guys and the connections we have built over the years… thank YOU for hanging out with me online!
The treadmill won my debate over what to do for my run yesterday. I knew I wouldn’t have time to run and watch the new episode of This Is Us (and I was way too excited to watch this week’s episode) so I combined the two for 5 miles of run/walking at home.
Beretta always stares at us like we are crazy when we run on the treadmill. She can’t understand why we would ever run inside when there is a whole world outside of different scents, cats to chase and places to take her running:) She doesn’t get my love for watching emotional tv shows while I run but maybe someday she will.
Andrew and Brooke stayed at his aunt’s house on Tuesday night before he took her the rest of the way to her dad for Thanksgiving! His aunt had pumpkin pancakes (jealous) for them and Brooke’s new favorite dog to play with in the morning.
Luckily, I was able to FaceTime with them a few times before she was off!
I didn’t leave the house all day yesterday until it was time to get Andrew at 3. I finished a bunch of stuff around the house and sat at the computer for hours and then jumped in the car to get Andrew at the airport.
I listened to this podcast yesterday on the drive and it was SO good. It also made me really want to try Barre3. Who wants to come to a class with me in February?
And then Andrew arrived. He is flying out on Saturday again to pick up Brooke and then drive home again with his cousins. He is quite the guy for doing all of this so that Brooke could be in California for Thanksgiving (traveling is not a thing right now for me… I swear the airplane ride is what put me in labor ((even though I’ve been told a million times that it wasn’t)) a little early with Brooke).
Beretta is positive that the arm rest in between the driver’s seat and passenger seat was made specifically for her to rest her head on whenever we drive anywhere.
We got up to Andrew’s parents’ house and they had creamy potato soup ready for us
After dinner they had The Goonies on and for the first time in my life I watched some of it. Andrew isn’t very happy that I have gone this long in life without watching it but someday I will watch the entire thing with him!
There was also some chocolate milk drinking… almost as good as hot chocolate. If I would have added marshmallows I’m sure it would be just as good as hot chocolate.
We also made a stop at the store to pick up some last second Thanksgiving stuff. I didn’t see this sign until we had already parked but next time we go to this grocery store, we are so parking here!
Andrew was pretty happy that his parents had Egg Nog. One time we were at a family gathering with Andrew’s family and Andrew put a bunch of alfredo in a glass and told his brother-in-law that it was Egg Nog. He took a big swig of it and yeah… it definitely took him by surprise!
I got this picture yesterday of Brooke doing her Thanksgiving meal prep. For some reason she looks so old to me with that apron on!
Have you ever done a running streak? Runner’s World has a fun one starting up today if you want to join it!
