Silentish Saturday!!

Met my mom yesterday morning!

She texted me first thing in the morning and asked me to meet her at the mall for some walking and talking… yes please!  Next time we are going to go when Cinnabon is open because the smell was beyond amazing and called to me the entire time.

My mom does A LOT of walking these days (we did 4.5 miles yesterday!!).  She found a pair of Altras that keep her feet really happy for all of the miles.

Skye slept the entire time!

For the next few weeks you can find me at the mall every so often with my mom walking the halls  (I love that the mall let’s people do this before it opens)!  Maybe they will let me run here too during the winter:)

Lots of oatmeal eating going on over here (they say it helps with your milk supply)!

She had a good day at school!

Keeping the staring contests going…

Went over to Mer’s house to bring her lunch and to celebrate her birthday!

Kneader’s is her favorite restaurant.  I had the bbq chicken salad and turkey bacon avocado sandwich.

Stopped at a park for a minute and they had a race.

That’s awesome that the mall lets people walk before everything opens! Such a great idea. When I make it to Utah, all I will be doing is eating at all the restaurants you post about lol.
Today is going to be slightly boring for me! It feels like -8 right now… So my day will involve buying makeup since I ran out of concealer, reading on the couch and maybe baking. No run today so fingers crossed tomorrow will be warm enough to go out!
Have a great day Janae!

We’re hoping that today is going to be the last really cold day (-3 currently with a high of 10). With that in mind, my agenda is:
1. snuggle on the couch with coffee and read all the blogs
2. Netflix and treadmill
3. Meal prep. I’m going to be cooking up a few meals to freeze for lunches and dinners – thai curry, veggie burritos, and stuffed shells.

Reply

I need to copy you and get some meals in the freezer for us to eat:) I hope your run was amazing Beckett and I really hope that it warms up soon where you are!

I spent the first couple years of my son’s life walking the malls every weekday with the stroller. Best form of exercise! :)

Reply

Your family is so sweet :) I always smile so big at your posts. You all seem so happy.

3 things I am doing today are taking a hot yoga class, watching a lot of Lost with Chris, and meal prepping a bunch of food. Have a great weekend!

My sister has twins, and when they were newborns I made her lactation cookies to help with milk production. She swore by them! I found the recipe on Pinterest. Also, they loved noise too, so my sister had a white noise machine in their nursery (I know – like you need ONE more baby item). I’m doing a short run, walking the dogs, and grocery shopping today. Have a good one!

Reply

I need some of these lactation cookies… I’m going to look them out. Thank you so much Jo Anne and I hope your day has been amazing. PS twins… your sister is a rockstar!

I am SO jealous of the warm weather y’all are having right now! It is 10 degrees in Northern Virginia this morning with a wind chill around zero, so…
1. I will be running 16 miles on a treadmill thanks to the school gym and Netflix
2. my kids will be watching too many Lion Guard episodes
3. We’ll probably have a movie night with hot chocolate.

Reply

I can’t believe how cold it is for you guys… come hang out here for a few weeks until it warms up:) I hope your 15 miles were amazing and enjoy that hot chocolate (I’m going to have some too)!

Reply

I’m still in Williamsburg VA chaperoning a school trip, so…

1. Hanging out with like 150 teenagers in a hotel for 2 hours of free time this afternoon and hoping for the best.

2. Visiting the Mariners Museum (and….yeah, boats are not my thing… neither are museums).

3. Going to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not with the whole crew tonight.

Cold stone right next door to Cinnabon? Heaven! I’m working and then having a date night with my husband at our favorite pizza place! Can’t wait until 630!!

Reply

Enjoy your date and pizza! One day I’m going to get a cinnabon topped with coldstone haha! Have a blast Aimee!

Weights
Hope’s swim lessons
Going out to dinner

We are getting our Chimney swept (Fun, right?! HA!), doing some yoga this morning plus hanging out with my cute niece this afternoon! Should be a great Saturday!!

Those salads at Kneaders sure look delicious!!! Oh and I absolutely love those Instagram finds!! Both are just perfect!!

Happy Saturday Janae!!

1. Going down to the new family history center downtown. Supposed to be really cool!
2. Attending my cousin’s wife’s baby shower. Right now this side of the family has 2 girl great grandkids and this new one is a boy! So we are excited.
3. Homework. And classes haven’t even started haha But I need to have 2 chapters read before my Wednesday class.

I loved seeing all the walkers when I’d have to open for the day when I was working at the mall. That would be awesome if they let you run. For some reason I really liked running inside. I’ve always thought it would be fun to either do a stairs workout or play hide and seek in ikea. I’m pretty sure both of those things would be frowned upon.

Reply

I love a big bowl of oats! Even for a snack ;) When I was nursing the kiddos I would do oats/protein powder/ ground flax (Good for milk supply too!!) with a big scoop of nut butter!! 3 things today… snuggles. naps and movies! It’s -14 here!!

Reply

I mall walked yesterday to get most of my 10,000 steps in :) then I did manage a couple of miles outside but it’s been single digits here in NYC with wind chills currently at -8.
I’m going sledding today if I ever finish putting on all the layers of clothing to keep me from getting frost bite. Lol.

Cuddling my dog and doing laundry too.

Reply

Skye is getting so big already, and so adorable!
Today I’m running with one of my favorite friends, getting my hair cut and highlighted and then I have to shop for a fancy dress for a work party in a few weeks. My first date that I went on a few weeks ago went well. We hit it off amazingly well and he’s going to my work party with me, so I’ve got to find a really good dress. 😉
Enjoy your Saturday!

Reply

AHHH Christina… I am so glad your date went so well and now to the work party wahoo! I hope you found the absolute perfect dress! Enjoy getting your hair cut too (and a run… sounds like the perfect day)!

Reply

You always post the most delicious looking food pictures!! I need to come to Utah, apparently!
Three things today – lower body strength training has to happen today, my workouts are still restricted after surgery but I need to do something! I also have a bunch of food I have to make for one final family Christmas tomorrow. And my friends and I are venturing to a town nearby that has some cute Amish stores so we can get some food, spices, etc.

Reply

Only three? For sure running, preparing sharing time, making cookies.
Next three… hopefully ;) … washing my hair, cleaning kitchen, painting my nails.

Reply

Love that you went mall walking with your mom! And I agree with the Cinnabon smell…every time I go to that mall it’s a temptation. I could never work at Charming Charlie’s across the way—I’d be so hungry ALL day! :)

My day will include bday preparations for my daughter (she’s 18 on Monday, how did this happen?!), a good and hard Spotebi HIIT workout, and some vacuuming. Random, but all necessary. :) Have a great Saturday!

Reply

AHHH wish your daughter happy birthday for me on Monday:) Sounds like a great day! Hahah yeah… I think I need to go today to get a Cinnabon because I can’t stop thinking about it. Thanks Michelle!

Reply

That’s a lot of walking. I don’t mind to run 4.5 miles but walking takes so much longer. But of course you were walking with your mom so that would be enjoyable. Was that more than hour of walking?

Reply

Yeah we had a blast… we had so much to catch up on since we don’t see each other as often as we used to. I think it took us about an hour and fifteen minutes. I hope your day is a great one Mary!

Reply

I love the instagram poem. I really needed that. Made me tear up actually. Enjoy your day Janae!

Reply

I am so glad it could help you:) I hope you are having a beautiful day Becky!

Love your mom’s shoes! That toe-box looks so nice and roomy!!!

Three things I did today:
Watched 2 basketball games
Grocery shopped
Opened our box of See’s candy (nuts and chews). We have been waiting patiently to open it!

I wanted to run in between my son’s basketball games but my daughter and I were having fun chatting and holding twins of another mom at the game. Sometimes you just have to chill out and relish the spontaneous moments spent with people (This is how I reassured myself!)

Reply

YES YES YES… Somedays just call for people rather than a run! And now I want some See’s candy so bad:) Enjoy the rest of your weekend Kelly!

Reply

Three things: laundry, planning next week’s school (home school), marathon nursing my 4mo old tank of a baby :) How does your mom always have PERFECT hair?? How is her health? She looks like she’s doing well!

Reply

Hey Anna!! Hahaha I love the last item on your three things today! How many children do you home school? You are amazing. I agree… my mom looks so good and her hair is always perfect. Health wise she is doing better than ever. She eats so well and exercises every day. It makes me so happy to see her feeling so great. I hope you are having a beautiful day!

Reply

So glad she’s doing well! You’re parents both seem so sweet <3
I have 7 kiddos. I am currently homeschooling my oldest 5 (11th, 10th, 8th, 7th and 4th grade). It is a LOT of work but SO worth it to get to have us together so much. My kiddos are truly the best of friends and there is SO much noise and laughter going on here every day. It's super fun :)

Reply

Thank you so much Anna! Oh wow… you have your hands full! You sound like an incredible mom… those 7 kids are the luckiest! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Tiny little treadmill run, sledding and snowboarding play date, and hot chocolate.
I love that the malls are a place to go to move. I used to take my kids there before it opened to burn off some energy and then I joined Stroller Strides and we were able to have our workouts in a local mall. Without the mall, my kids and I would have been much less active when they were really little.

Reply

I seriously LOVE that mall and go whenever I’m down that way.
3 things I’m doing today:

1- it’s my son’s 8th birthday AND baptism so that’s taken up most of the morning
2- relaxing after the busy morning
3- evening will consist of birthday boys dinner pick and a possible movie

hope your Saturday is going well

Hi Janae, this is TOTALLY random, but I’ve read you’ve been to San Francisco a few times. My boyfriend and I are vacationing in Maui in March, and have a six hour layover on the flight out (and back, but that’s another story;). We thought about going to Fisherman’s wharf for brunch or lunch, do you know of a good, not too touristy, place to eat? It doesn’t necessarily have to be at the wharf either. I thought you’d be the one to ask;) Thanks a lot, and congratulations on Skye, she’s perfect!

1. 10 LONG solo treadmill miles (this cold weather snap needs to go, PRONTO!).
2. Networking event with my fit fam!
3. Matching socks…glamorous Saturday night in for this mama :-)
