How is this the last day of 2017 already? This year went by crazy fast… especially these last few weeks!
I love this picture of Skye because it looks like she has a little smirk on her face:)
Those cheeks of hers are incredibly hard to resist.
Skye slept like a champ on Friday night—> 5.5 hours in a row! Andrew and I both felt amazing when we woke up this morning and add to that a 2.5 mile walk, I felt really good this morning.
I also listened to this podcast during my walk and while doing a few other things yesterday morning. It was SO good. If you need something to listen to during your runs this week, listen to this one. Des is so inspiring and so down to earth. I loved her tips, her story and then hearing her talk about her mantras… calm, calm, calm, relax, relax, relax (said in pattern with her running) for most of the race with a healthy mixture of RUN YOUR FACE OFF too ha. It made me so excited to run again!
Lunch was the typical salad with chicken, sweet potato and a piece of toast w/pb (that I had already started eating before taking a picture)!
Then I attempted to get ready for the day but then that never really happened;) This picture is a great reminder to me to clean the mirrors at some point in the next month maybe.
Also, Brooke will be proud to know that I wore the bracelet that she made for me the entire time she was gone.
Knox and Andrew went to go see a movie!
Once the boys came home we all went outside for a little bit because it was 53 degrees outside! I wish we could send some of our warmth out east! Skye was questioning my beanie selection for her…
And then we left the house. I’ve missed seeing those mountains!
We stopped at two places while we were out… we had a gift card for Krispy Kreme so Knox and I went in to grab some donuts.
Knox told me he was going to get a sprinkle donut because he missed Brooke and sprinkles remind him of her.
PS a hot chocolate and donut before dinner is always a good idea.
And then we stopped to pick up sushi! We decided to have a little date night while Knox watched a show and Skye slept. I have missed tuna tataki and sushi so much.
I’m picking up Brooke today! I can’t wait to see that little face of hers!
2017 has been quite the year over here (I’m sure it has been for all of you guys)! We’ve had a lot of changes (HELLO, SKYE ((the highlight of our year)), a lot of miles were run, Brooke started KINDERGARTEN, Knox has been rocking pre-school, Andrew finished up another year of school (he 1.2 years left) and I’m just thrilled to have Skye here (and to not be pregnant anymore;)! I thought I would share the top 17 posts from this last year in case you wanted to check any of them out!
*A big change for our family… We cannot wait to tell you about! (This was when we announced we were expecting)!
*My feature with OLD NAVY active gear and what inspires YOU in 2017! (This was probably one of the absolute coolest things I’ve done for work)
*What I do when I see something on my body I want to change! (I share what I do when I don’t love my body and the cottage cheese on my leg)
*Meet our new little addition! (Skye’s first time on the blog)
*15 pictures from our really special day! (Andrew and I were sealed in the temple and I share a bit about what that means here)
*They met! (The first time Knox, Brooke and Skye all met)
*Your unpopular opinions and sentence per picture! (These are hilarious!!)
I’m really looking forward to sharing with you how our family continues to grow in 2018, getting back into running shape again and hopefully some personal records (or at least the training to begin for a pr race)!
What was the best part of your 2017?!
