Skye is loving the sound of the treadmill already:) It is quite soothing to her actually. I completely understand why… the treadmill or the sound of my feet hitting the pavement while out on a run are quite soothing to me too.
I’m loving my 2.5 mile walks in the morning and especially when Andrew brings Skye right in front of me to say hello.
Rewind to first thing in the morning and we got to hang out with Knox for a little bit! He has a jail costume that he loves at his mom’s house so he was excited to show that off to us. Brooke bought him a fidget spinner!
After my walk, Andrew went out for a 6 mile run and the girls (Beretta is a girl too) all hung out in Brooke’s room.
Skye ended up falling asleep during our coloring contest.
But then she woke up shortly after and Brooke really wanted to hold her. I think Skye is looking a lot like some of Brooke’s baby pictures these days and Brooke looks just like my nieces so maybe they will all look alike.
This is one of my favorite things at Target. All you do is throw the bag of broccoli into the microwave (without having to do a thing) and three minutes later you have delicious broccoli.
They were a part of yesterday’s lunch (salad mixes are also a favorite right now but we will talk more about that down below)!
Later on in the afternoon we took Beretta out for a short walk!
And dinner was crazy good! We made this one pan lemon butter garlic shrimp and asparagus.
Baby foot with dinner in the background. When we were going around the table naming things that we are thankful for, Andrew said he is thankful that I let him cook normal food again. Smells were the worst and there were some (a lot) of foods I just didn’t allow in the house during pregnancy.
Dessert was provided by my good friend Paige. They tasted like heaven.
And a few minutes on the couch before bedtime… It’s normal that I want to go to sleep at the same time that the 5 year old goes to sleep.
Now that I don’t have any weird aversions or ridiculous cravings for Bisquick every meal, Andrew and I are really on a kick to fill up on some nutrient dense foods (along with treats too because those just make me happy) to eat at home. We made a list and Andrew took Brooke to Costco. I thought I would share some of our favorite Costco goods/needs/love. We already had a few of our MUSTS (during the winter at least) from Costco but a lot of the stuff we love is in the picture below:
Dave’s Killer bread, grapes, pineapple, bananas, brussels sprouts, broccoli, salad kits, broccoli, cauliflower rice, eggs, cheese slices, deli meat (that taste perfect with the cheese slices), pretzel things, milk, marinara sauce, ground turkey, eggs, tuna, shrimp, salmon, beef jerky, Kodiak Cakes, yogurt, frozen chicken, turkey burgers, sweet potatoes (oh how I love their huge bags of them), oatmeal, cereal and the random samples that I try while I am there that convince me to buy the product.
PS yesterday in the comments Mary was telling me about her runs in Boston lately (I hope it warms up for you guys soon!!) and the icicles she gets on her eyelashes. It reminded me of this run with Josse from about a year ago. I mean, I’m hoping that we just skip the cold winter this year but if not, I wouldn’t mind another run like this one again. Brooke saw this picture on my computer yesterday and said that I looked like Elsa!
Tell me about the COLDEST run you have ever done, please. Icicles on your eyelashes? Frozen shoelaces by the end? It’s that time of year to talk about this. PS isn’t it the best when you are running in crazy weather and you think about what the people in cars driving by must be thinking about your decision to run outside?!
What are some of your weekly staples at the grocery store? At Costco? At TJ’s or wherever you shop?
Favorite type of seafood, least favorite type of seafood?
What was the last dessert/treat that you had?
