Skye woke up at 3 a.m. and then slept again until 7:15 a.m. so I was pretty thrilled about that. I know that there will probably be a sleep regression up ahead but until then I’m just going to celebrate feeling like my brain is working a little bit again.
Brooke was off to school. Andrew hung out with Knox and Skye because I had a running date to attend.
Josse and I met up for another run! Thursdays have turned into our run together days. We met at one of our favorite paths—> Flat as a pancake, gorgeous views and no noise from cars to interrupt our very important conversations.
We ended up going a bit further than we planned on (6 miles @ 8:08 average pace) but it felt really good. I’m either on the treadmill for 3 miles or taking a rest day today and then on Saturday I’m going to do a short run with 7 x 1 minute fast for me paces. PS if you are in need of some workout ideas, I’ve got a million on my WORKOUTS PAGE!
After our run we hung out on the curb like the good ol’ days and stretched for a few minutes.
And then I passed off the workout baton to Andrew for him to go get some endorphins. He went mountain biking yesterday and he actually crashed but ended up totally okay thanks to his helmet. He is a daredevil, I am the opposite.
Skye (well, she slept the whole time) and I went to pick up the kids from school and then we grabbed some lunch together. I tried to get in some extra time with Brooke and Knox yesterday before they leave today. Knox is going to his mom’s and Andrew is flying Brooke out to California for her to visit her dad. Andrew is flying back after he drops her off so he will be back this weekend and then go back out and get her on Sunday. It’s so nice of him to do this because I am not yet ready to fly with Skye but over the years she will join us on many trips to Northern California.
We started off our February by completing one of our traditions together. We made a bunch of sugar cookies (recipe here.. it’s our favorite) to take to friends!
I hope they like sprinkles:)
I did the selfless thing and hung out on the couch with Skye later on while she napped. She sleeps way better cuddled up on someone so that is why I say it was so selfless (even though it’s one of my favorite things to do).
We still haven’t made it to Costco (our fridge is a ghost town right now) but this whole meal came from our freezer which was a success!
The kids had the same thing but with chicken nuggets instead of salmon.
Sure going to miss them!
*Please put this on your calendar and go enjoy free froyo next week. We go every single year and of course we will be there this year too.
*I know I’m obsessed with The Greatest Showman but this clip made me cry and have goosebumps for 4 minutes straight so if you want to cry… watch it.
*Speaking of this movie… I was very happy to find Andrew alone blasting the soundtrack and singing along.
*A reader recommend that we try this game out with our kids and she was right, they LOVE it. It also makes us all crave donuts for the rest of the day.
*You know I love watching Shark Tank right?! Well, we were pretty excited when one of my running partner’s (we used to run together 4-5 days a week) husband was on this last week! He got a deal too!
*Another MUST for Valentines day candy! SO good.
*My February bow subscription. My goal is to collect 100 bows for Skye to choose from… not sure how Andrew feels about this huge goal of mine;)
*After decades of loving Target, I finally got one of their red cards. Saving 5% each time I shop just means I get to buy 5% more each time;)
*And somehow Skye is 8 weeks TODAY.

Kelsey!! “I live in Florida, work for Disney, and in January 2017, I ran my first ever marathon, The Walt Disney World Marathon, in 4:35. One year later this month (on 1/7/18), after a year of training, inevitable ups and downs, and races (including a half marathon PR of 1:45), I ran the same marathon in 3:43! A 52 minute improvement from last year. Now, at age 30 with a 3 year old (named Sky!), I have my eyes on a BQ. “Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases some past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each foot strike rubs away a word, a look, or an event which led us to believe that success was beyond our grasp.” This quote has carried me through many things in life and running:)”
Are you a daredevil or would you rather play things safe?
Have any fun Friday night plans?
Are you traveling at all this month? WHERE TO?
Share a Friday favorite with me please!
