ANDREW and BROOKE got home yesterday after a long drive + a few extra hours due to traffic! It felt so good to have them home!
My Sunday consisted of a whole lot of nothing until they got home. I taught a lesson at church to the youth girls and ate food and that is pretty much it. Time is winding down and my body took full advantage of doing nothing and it was great.
Last night was Curly’s birthday party though so we did go to that to celebrate her!
He was pretty thrilled with the fruit snacks that I brought him!
My sister made such a good dinner (my niece’s favorite)! She did a big stir-fry with rice noodles and she makes the sauce by the SMELL! She doesn’t have measurements for anything but there was fresh garlic, hoisin sauce, fresh grated ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, fresh lime juice, some red pepper flakes and a little bit of vegetable oil in the sauce.
My nephew’s preferred way to stay warm during these winter months;)
After the party we came back home and Beretta was so excited to see Brooke. Her tag was wagging so fast that it is just a blur in the picture!
In case you missed out last week… the top three posts from last week were:
*Go ahead and add this to my Suunto Review… if you accidentally throw it in the wash (because it was in your pile of running clothes and it was way past my bedtime when I started the wash)… it will survive and actually still work perfectly afterwards. I do not know how it would have handled the dryer though and I never want to know the outcome of that…
It’s extra clean now too;) But maybe don’t try this at home.
*Just a sweet sibling moment where I found Brooke trying to help Knox tie his shoe.
*Really happy to have her home again.
*I think we will both be wearing beanies all winter long.
*Many of you have CIM coming up and plenty of marathons in the next few months and the spring… but this is what marathon I’m currently doing an amazing job training for.
*Brooke had a ‘Dad Day’ at her school a while ago. Getting this pic of them together at school made every part of my heart melt.
*Glad to see this scene again… we just need Knox home soon!
*Andrew and I were Facetiming one of the days he was in California and realized we were wearing matching shirts. Our brains were thinking the same thing that morning even though we were in different states ha.
*My favorite post-run activity. I learned it from my sister. To do this—> Just lay on the ground and think about how awesome you are for just running x amount of miles. Try it today. It is guaranteed to feel great and improve your mood even more.
*I AM OBSESSED. OBSESSED with Shark Tank right now. I want to come up with an invention just so I can go on the show. I also want to buy everything they feature which is kind of a problem.
Eating chocolate cake while watching is especially entertaining.
*I found the wrapping paper that Andrew bought to wrap my gifts for Christmas. He gets me.
*Don’t mind my lame answers back (I was just about to fall asleep but woke up very excited about it;) but look who wants to do a marathon next year!? ANDREW. I’ll get on board with this idea of doing a bunch of races together.
*PS he has already started training for our race against one another that we are doing next year (he says the winner gets $500 ha)… you can read more about that here (this race idea started when the kids told him I am faster than him;). He is starting with some Yasso 800s to prepare:) I’ve already reached out to my old coach for a training plan for me to do to prepare for this race. Who is going to come watch?
*My mom sent this to me telling me that I needed this shirt for when I was in school. When I was in high school my sister was once the English substitute for my class for about two weeks. She had to move me so many times until finally she just put me in the very back by myself ha. Even with my sister as the teacher, I had a hard time stopping my talking (so now I just force people to read what I want to say each day;)
Ever washed something that you didn’t mean to or REALLY did not want to!?
-Fun fact… if you put your cell phone in the washer like I did one time on accident (it got folded up into my sheets) it is not a happy ending like it was for my Suunto.
What was the highlight of your weekend?!
Any other Shark Tank fans? Have a favorite product that you’ve seen on the show?
In school were you a talker or not so much?
-It depended on the class I was in but I definitely deserved some karma from students when I taught high school myself.
