In case you missed out on last week, the most viewed posts were:
Sundays are my off days from pretty much everything besides snuggling and staying in pajamas until the last second possible.
I really gotta make sure to get Skye’s neck clean during bath time… there are a lot of rolls there these days!
Eventually we did make it out of the house to go to church.
And then we came home to Skye and Andrew.
The kids were pretty excited to get decorating for the birthday party we were having at our house. We celebrated my dad’s bday, my nephew’s bday and mine all in one party. PS I have celebrated my birthday with my dad every single year of my life… It’s our thing.
I was very impressed with how well the kids know me… they put together my favorite trail mix of candy and did a good job mixing it all up.
I bet you can guess what we requested for dinner—> my mom’s lasagna. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Garlic bread, veggies and salad too!
Skye loved her time with grandma.
And her great grandma too!
And then Andrew pulled out his masterpiece. My love language:
A four layer yellow cake with chocolate frosting. It was incredible. He wins.
My little nephew was speechless (and shaking with excitement… I’m not even exaggerating) when he opened his new Cars toys.
Curly wrote me a letter that made me cry.
And my mom gave me this book. I can’t wait to read it!
Pretty sure it feels like it was just a year ago when I was holding my niece just like this and now she is holding Skye.
And now let’s talk about the random things I’ve been thinking about:
*Does anybody else love the athlete profile stories sometimes more than watching them actually compete? I LOVE watching the behind the scenes of what these athletes do to get to where they are. I love seeing how they have overcome so many different obstacles and goosebumps/tears are usually included for me whenever I watch any of these.
*Brooks (they have cute V-day stuff here) conducted a survey with runners for Valentine’s Day the other day and these were their findings! I am torn on the ideal run date… a romantic beach run sounds really good right about now but so does an adventurous trail run! I want to choose both on that question. On my first run date with Andrew (it was our second date) I took some time thinking about what outfit to wear.
*I loved Jane’s comment the other day and I’ve been thinking about it a lot ever since. It really is all about the little efforts that we are making in each area of life that mean something. I get it in my head that I need to get ALL of the things done each day and I never do so it just leaves me feeling defeated… paying attention to making little efforts each day instead sounds like a much better plan. Also, does anyone else think about their to-do list a little too much every day? I feel like some days I think about all of the things I should be getting done way too much so along with focusing on ‘little efforts, everyday’ I’m going to focus on putting the to-do list off more often!
What is your ideal run date? Romantic beach run or adventurous trail run?
Any goals that you have this week? Anything you are focusing on working on? Anyone else think about their to-do lists too much?
What is your favorite Olympic event to watch?
What would you choose for your bday dinner and dessert?
