Another treadmill walk in the books over here!
Yesterday I walked for 3.1 miles and in just 9 more days I will have my doctor’s appointment to see if I am cleared to start running again! I’ll start out very small with my running but I am excited! This is random but do certain running clothes that you own remind you of specific races or running memories? Whenever I wear this orange tank top I am reminded of the Tucson Marathon which went very well for about 19.78 miles but not so well for the rest;)
Took the Brookster to school and this is how she wanted to pose for the picture:
And then once she was out of school we all jumped in the car to run a few errands! I had about 2 seconds to grab a snack for us and sometimes it only takes 2 seconds to prepare the world’s greatest snack—> a spoon and a jar of almond butter.
Skye stayed in the car snoozing with either Andrew or me while we were out and about.
Brooke needed something for school so we ran into the mall together to get it!
Lunch was a really good one. I have been feeling like eggs a lot these days. Speaking of which, I really need to make a huge batch of hard-boiled eggs (aka Andrew’s most hated food). So a bunch of eggs with onions, cheese, spinach and butternut squash (the precut bag from Target is a favorite) hit the spot. So did the bacon, that always hits the spot.
Andrew made such a good dinner last night! He used this recipe for the bbq chicken (in the crockpot) along with cauliflower rice and roasted broccoli.
Post dinner deliciousness were these cake bites that were sent to us. Nothing much better than getting something full of sugar in your mailbox unexpectedly.
Let’s get talking about some tangents that have been floating around my head to share with you!
*This is Us starts back up again tonight!!! I cannot wait for tonight’s episode… it feels like it has been forever since the last one!
*I also cannot wait for this:
*My mom was over yesterday for a little bit and she could not believe how much Skye loves Brooke’s entertainment already! Brooke would come over to her and sing, dance, talk to Skye and then the second she would leave… Skye would start crying so hard. Brooke would then come back to Skye and Skye would stop crying.
*My mom took Brooke for a little while to hang out. Then they picked up donuts for my sister’s family and had a donut party.
*She makes it REALLLLLLL hard to get anything done around here and I am more than okay with that!
*Ever wonder why my family is often in a lot of clothes with a Y on it?! It’s because my brother-in-law works at BYU and gives us gear that we love.
*This is from sometime last week. When Andrew is home, we have a chance to make more delicious meals… when he is not home, I rely on a drive-thru or whatever meal I can make with one hand (ehh… cereal).
*Brooke and Skye had their very first tea party together. Brooke even brought in a little toy carton of milk for Skye because she knows Skye can’t have tea yet.
*I wish I could blame being tired on the fact that I was wearing my shirt backwards for awhile the other day… but I can’t because I do this quite often normally.
*We all have those crazy hair days… some of us more often than others.
*I thought the Hint of Lime tortilla chips were the best tortilla chips ever but I stand corrected… Hint of Jalapeño win.
*My current reading… My oldest brother and grandma put together and typed up all of my grandpa’s journals from when he started writing one. Andrew never met my grandpa so it has been fun for him to read this too and get to know him a bit. So many good memories. If you can, keep a record of your life somehow for your posterity to read (my posterity will read mine and think I was obsessed with donuts, hot chocolate, running and my family… and they will be correct).
*I swear the days right now go by so crazy fast. I get into bed at night and think… what in the world did I even get done today? And then I remind myself that I spent the majority of the day cuddling Skye and that is exactly what I need to get done each day right now ha.
*I love the little ringlets that Brooke gets in her hair.
*We are ready for summer already;) Skye’s swimsuit arrived in the mail (it’s from Baby Gap) and I can’t wait to see her in this.
Have any Tangents to share?
Do you have naturally curly or straight hair?
-Straight as a pin!
What did you have for dinner last night?
For those of you that have had kids and run… how long of a break did you take from running after having a baby?
