Sentence Per Picture!!!!

HELLO… I’ve got some things to share today!

Their morning planning meeting:

IMG 6119

Andrew went on an early long run in shorts and came back and said, ‘maybe this is why people wear running tights” (his legs were bright red) ha.. and then he continued to wear shorts for the rest of the day.

IMG 6214

I did a 2 mile walk and then took advantage of Brooke and Knox being at school…

IMG 6142

I watched two of my all-time favorite Friends episodes—> the episode with Phoebe’s crazy running (I think I’m going to try her running form one time at a race;) and the one where Ross & Monica show off their dancing routine at the New Year’s Eve party/show (I almost woke up Skye from laughing so hard)!

IMG 6131

My lunch was so good and so easy—>  leftover salmon/roasted broccoli from the night before, my favorite salad mix and a sweet potato.

IMG 6143

My lunch dates yesterday (Knox left after lunch)!

IMG 6144

Her reading game is strong!

Another 40something degree day so we took it outside to move!

IMG 6206

We had a staring contest and she won.

Brussels sprouts cooked in honey, balsamic vinegar  and olive oil!

Thanksgiving episode, the one Joey put the turkey on his head, hahaha ( I laugh every time I remember it)

Those are two awesome episodes. I love Friends. I just finished it again. One of my favorites is the one with the wedding dresses. But in general I like the second half of seasons better than the earlier ones.
I have wild and crazy laundry doing plans for tonight ;) And then sleeping in tomorrow. Getting up today was tough.

Reply

I just started watching Friends again because we no longer have DVR on the TV with my treadmill. (And I can’t handle higher technology than TV when I run!) Friends seems to always be on when I am running. I saw Monica’s baby shower recently – it was hilarious! Please start posting your treadmill screen again! I would love more details on your post-pregnancy walking regimen. Thanks!

Reply

I LOVE Friends! One of my faves is “The One Where No One’s Ready” when there is so much going on all at once. “Hummus. I got the hummus!”

No big Friday night plans over here—hopefully an early bedtime! :) Hope you have a great weekend, Janae!

Reply

Friday is my rest day ahead of my long run tomorrow (13 miles). I know this will sound like blasphemy to many but I like Friends, I don’t LOVE it. As such, I have no favorite episodes. I tolerate them and will watch them if there is nothing else on TV and its certainly entertaining but thats about it. Sorry.

Love that affirmation card. Too cute.

Reply

Love the Friends episode with Phoebe’s crazy running!! When my sister and I were little we have a big vent in our room that opened up to the living room and we would watch tv when our parents thought we were sleeping!! Now as a parent I’m pretty sure my mom and dad knew we were watching tv lol!!

Reply

My absolute favorite episode is the one where they do the game show in the apartment! No matter how many times I’ve seen it I laugh so hard! And I always cry when I watch the last one. It is a great show!

Reply

Those are some of my favorite Friends episodes! Sometimes I wonder how that show got filmed without the actors and actresses all laughing. If you’re ever looking for a cook appetizer, wrap bacon around brussel sprouts and brush maple syrup on them and bake in the oven. So good!

My sentence for the week is stay warm! Between a foot of snow yesterday and below zero wind chills until tomorrow night, I don’t want to be outside unless absolutely necessary.

Reply

I never really got into friends believe it or not. My brother is in town and we are just relaxing today because it’s so cold. I hope we get to do something or at least the house.

Reply

I literally JUST watched the “Phoebe crazy running” episode of Friends this past week – Hilarious!! Absolutely love Friends – too many fave episodes to count. But the episode where “Chandler Can’t Cry” is def. in my top five. I laugh (out loud) every time! Have a great day!

Reply

I thought I was a friends fan but I’m realizing more and more that I just watched it and should probably do so again. I don’t think I have a favorite episode. But I do like “PIVOT!!!” I think Ross might be my favorite character

Reply

LOL!! I said the same thing!!

Reply

Sentence of the day is “It’s -1 outside; let’s make some tea.”
I’m going to hit the treadmill at the gym for a 5-miler this afternoon. Boston is a mess weather-wise right now so I’ve been watching a lot of HGTV on the treadmill at the gym.
My favorite friends episode is probably when Phoebe’s music blows up because she has a cold and her voice is all raspy:)

Reply

Those are the BEST episodes! I also love the episode where Joey wears all of Chandler’s clothes :)

Reply

Re: Brussels sprouts- My favorite way to cook them is similar: halved, tossed with olive oil and sprinkle of salt; roast until brown and a bit crispy; then drizzle a mix of equal parts honey and balsamic over it. Keeps them crispy and tart and sweet! I could eat them every day…

Reply

That’s exactly how we made them yesterday !!! Great minds think alike!

Reply

The best ever… I want more right now! I hope your day is amazing Erin!

Reply

I have heard and just read some of the comments that some people don’t like Friends which is just so confusing to me :) I LOVE it. I have been going home at lunch to walk on my treadmill instead of my normal walk outside since it has been so cold. TBS does a marathon of Friends starting at around noon here so I know I could watch on streaming with no commercials but when a commercial comes on, I’ll mute the tv and read my book. Quite the system going on over here :) Hmm – one of my favorite episodes is probably when Chandler proposes to Monica and the room is all candlelit.
Random but that affirmation sounds like it could be written by your Mom (from what little I’ve learned about her from your blog and never having met her!)

Reply

My favorite episode is when Joey and Rachel start dating and Ross has them over for fajitas!! My college roommate and I die every time we see it

Reply

OH MY GOODNESS… that one is amazing. I think I need to watch that one today!

Reply

Andrew is officially insane!! I can’t believe he is still wearing shorts. I would not make it one mile!
Love that picture of Skye – she is beautiful!
I’m craving brussel sprouts now, at 9:47 am! Roasted is the only way to go.
My favorite Friends episode is the one where Phoebe sings the “Smelly Cat” song. I die laughing every time!
I’m going to venture out some time today for an easy 4 mile run…it’s currently 16 degrees and I will most definitely be wearing running tights!

Reply

My rest day is always Sunday! And in the past year I’ve also taken Saturday as a rest day too. It’s nice to have weekends off. I had salmon and sweet potato for dinner last night too (with cauliflower and quinoa)! Glad you’re enjoying the relatively warm weather! 😁

Reply

Had a 5am workout sweat fest with the hubby, it started the day on a real good foot!

Reply

Okay, that is so fun that you guys worked out together… way to go Erica! I hope your weekend is perfect!

Reply

I love Brussels sprouts,cooked the same way. However I add pecans, yum.
I LOVE how beautiful your family is, in spirit and appearance.
Please tell me where Skyes blanket with the rose buds came from. (Expectant grandma here 😀)
No run for me today, cycle and some yoga.

Reply

Be ruthless to the things that don’t matter. This has been stuck in my brain all week.
No big plans tonight. Maybe going out to eat and run a few errands…maybe chill at home :)
Friday is always my rest day unless I have the day off and rested on Thursday. I have two good workouts for Saturday and Sunday.
My favorite Friends episode is where Ross buys a new couch and won’t pay for delivery “PIVOT! PIVOT!” I’m cracking up just thinking about it. Close 2nd & 3rd is Ross and the leather pants or Ross and the tanning booth. Seems like Ross has the funniest story lines.

Reply

those Brussels sprouts look delicious! My son loves watching friends now which makes me happy since such a great show from when I was younger!

Reply

Friday night plans for me will be going to a physical therapy appointment after work. I messed up my already messed up shoulder on Christmas Eve and I want to get back to strength training so PT for me for awhile. Not convenient when everyone at home needs mom but I tell myself I was long overdue to get this shoulder fixed and since it is winter and dark so early it is the perfect time of year to be away in the evening. Then my husband is meeting me for dinner since Monday is my birthday and we are booked for the weekend.

Reply

I love roasted brussels sprouts or shredded and stir fried. Boiled are just disgusting.

It’s 9 degrees out today and yesterday was supposed to be my rest day but we got 10 inches of snow. 2 hours of shoveling means today is yoga and/or Pilates to stretch out those achy muscles.

My sentence of the day is, But I don’t want to go outside.

Reply

Ok I literally just watched those exact two episodes of Friends like 2 nights ago! I started it again and now hubs is hooked (he has never watched it before) so I can’t watch it without him. My favorite is Ross and the leather pants. I think. I just love so many of them!

Reply

No running accomplishments? Probably the bitter cold!

Reply

I KNOW… I missed them this week! Hopefully next week some people send some in:) And hopefully it warms up a bit too! Have a fabulous weekend Stacey!

Reply

I need to know more about your eye lashes! I’m obsessed. How often do you get them done? Is it super expensive? I’m in Denver so I have no idea what to even look for! Yours look so natural and not like you’re a dancer of the night ;) I’m also pregnant so can I do it while pregnant or should I wait?

Also Skye is amazing and I love her bows and ive been taking notes for my little girl on the way. I have a boy now and he wasn’t as fun to dress :) bring on the tutus!

Reply

Brooke and Knox are going to have so much fun growing up together. They’re so lucky to have each other and be so close in age.
My favorite Friends episode is probably the one where Chandler is in the box to make things up to Joey. It was my Netflix show a few months ago; now I’m wondering if I should watch it again. My husband can’t stand Friends, which blows my mind. I guess it’s the same way I feel about Seinfeld.

Reply

I love those cards, where did you find them?

Friday night plans are to chill-ax after all the snow we got yesterday, most likely a pizza and fire night!! xoxxo

Reply

HEY TARA!! They are the best… here is the link!

Sounds like the PERFECT Friday night to me:) Enjoy!

Reply

There is NOTHING like a sweet sleeping baby smile! I can see why that is your new favorite picture of Skye!

Well, I ran yesterday in cold/wind/slush, and it was miserable. It’s been so cold in the east here that I’m starting to dread running, my body hurts, and I’m not a TM runner. Today we have 20-30 mph winds and negative wind chill. SO, I’m listening to my goals for the near year and listening to my body and cross training today and tomorrow. I’ll get back to running Sunday! Missing a couple of runs in miserable weather won’t hurt me in the end! Boom! ha ha I’m proud of myself for finally realizing that!

Enjoy your weekend!!!!!!!

Reply

HUGE Friend’s fan here!!
1. The One Where Rosita Dies
2. The One with Frank Jr. – its the one where Joey builds the entertainment unit, & Ross makes the list of names.
However i don’t believe i have a true favorite. They are ALL SO GOOD!!!!!!!

No Friday plans. Just plans to get a few good runs in this weekend. Next weekend is my FIRST FULL MARATHON!!!!!

& Skye is so stinking cute!!!

Reply

I love the Friends episode where they all find out that Chandler and Monica are together….”They don’t know that we know that they know…”!

Reply

The vent idea is genius! A+ for creativity. Love skye’s hairdo in the staring picture contest. And you are looking great – how do you manage to look so beautiful while sleep deprived?!

Reply

We are dealing with record low temps and frozen pipes at my house!! We are on day 2 of no school and somehow I ended up with 2 extra kids at my house!! Luckily I was off from work any way today.

I am just ignoring the mess they are making as I hold the hair dryer to our pipes and pray.

Reply

Oh Carrie!! I am so so sorry about your frozen pipes and the crazy cold you are experiencing! Please keep me updated on how you guys are doing!!!!

Reply

Ross stuck in his leather pants -the all-time best episode, I’m laughing just thinking about it.
Talking through the vents… I really really love that, your kids are geneus!

Reply

Yes, Ross with baby powder all over the place!!

Reply

I love that one but it also really stresses me out!!! Haha

Reply

Favorite Friends episode, the one at Monica and Chandler’s wedding where Rachel takes the pregnancy test in the bathroom and Phoebe fibs and says it’s negative. Rachel says ‘how could I be upset over something I never had?’ Then Phoebe tells her she lied and she really was pregnant. I cry every single time. Nice my eyes are welling up just typing it!

Reply

I hope to run outside after work…..it has been miserably cold in Tennessee…makes motivation hard!

I cant choose one Friends episode, I love them all! The one where they play football and Rachel stinks and Ross and Monica fight over the Gellar cup; the one with the cheesecakes and they eat it off the floor; the one with Brad Pitt where there is the “I hate Rachel Green faclub”; the flashbacks to college them where Monica is trying to be sexy with carrots and drops the knife on Chanler’s toe…….they are all so funny!

Reply

I just checked out those affirmation cards. They look so cool! I might have to buy them when I get a bit of extra money.

I don’t have any big Friday night plans. I’ll probably stay in and watch Blue Bloods on the couch. I haven’t watched in in awhile.

Reply

No sentence of the day sadly. I watched Friends – can’t remember any particular episode though. Fridays used to be my rest days but this morning, I ran just under 9 miles solo and it felt so good.

Friday night plans = staying home and watching a movie in PJS. In fact this is what happens most nights after work…

Have a great weekend!

Reply

My favorite episodes of Friends are when everyone finds out Monica and Chandler are dating, I die every time they are trying to get the others to admit they know, also the episode where Ross laminates a list of women he can hook up with without any repercussions and tries to hit on Isabella Rossiline at the end of the episode. But honestly, so many are favorites it is hard to pick just one. Also the game show to win the apartment is awesome.
My brothers and I always used to talk between the vents, it felt so sneaky but I’m sure my parents could hear us too :)

Reply

Just finished work and I’m off to a yoga class which after a rough day at work I’m really looking forward to it. I don’t think I could ever pick 1 episode that’s my favourite but Phoebe’s running one and the one where Joey learns French (because I’m half french I find it SO funny!) are my top two! My best friend and I were neighbours growing up for a few years and we got walkie talkies to talk to each other when we weren’t together:) Have a lovely weekend!!

Reply

My Friday night plans consist of a 7 mile easy run while watching Riverdale, and then studying for my Global Business class. I am currently training for the Little Rock Marathons in hopes of a sub-4. I have recently been using the Hanson’s Running program, and I am really enjoying it. I can definitely tell a difference in my running.

As I am living the single life, I always think back to the Friends episode where Monica tells Richard she is “being breezy” on his answering machine…..I use that line all the time when talking to my friends about dates. Cracks us all up!

Reply

This is really random and has nothing to do with your post, but we share a love of broccoli (and running and candy :) so I thought I’d let you in on my new fave way to prepare broccoli. Usually I just toss fresh broccoli in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic powder and then roast it. BUT this week I got a little crazy and made homemade pesto and then tossed it on the broccoli before roasting. Life changer! SO good!

Oh and yes, LOVE Friends! Too many fave episodes to name here, but one that comes to mind is when Ross asks Rachel to help him move the sofa into his apartment…pivot, pivot, pivot! Haha!

Reply

My sentence for the day is: Try and do new things in 2018.

It came about as I was finishing up my blog post for today. Yesterday – while at work – I got to belay!!! One of my coworkers got some amazing pictures that I put in my blog.
And I’m going to try to do a running streak; at least one mile every day on 2018. I’ve never done one before but so far so good. :)

My wild & crazy plans for tonight are: running at least one mile and finally getting the Christmas stuff put away.

Reply

Haha the shorts thing really cracked me up!
My friend and I are cooking dinner together and having game night because I’ve eaten dinner alone a lot the last month and a half, oh the joys of being a grad student. -_- But first I’m going to try and slog a few miles out on the treadmill at the gym. I’m hoping I do at least 3. I really hate the treadmill, I actually don’t think I’ve run more than 3 consecutive miles ever on one. =/

Those Brussel sprouts look so tasty!

NEWS: In-N-Out adds first new menu item in over 10 years: hot cocoa

How happy are you???????

Okay, I’m seriously laughing out loud at Knox and Brooke’s conversation through the vent! My sister and I did the EXACT same thing when we were little!!! I thought we were the only ones! HAHAHA! I mean….it does work! ;)

Those two Friends episodes are seriously THE BEST ever!!! Gosh, that show never gets old!

Reply

TGIF could not ring more true for me today! Long day just made better by your post – thanks for that! I love the Phoebe episode too and that affirmation card is A+!
