Last night we celebrated our 2 year anniversary from the first time we met! I somehow convinced Andrew that we need to celebrate our anniversaries each year for our first date, when we got engaged, our wedding and when we got sealed. The more anniversaries the better, right?
Rewind to the beginning of the day—> My coach put 0 running miles on the schedule so instead of running we went outside to walk for a little while. Brooke and Knox were at school and I chatted with my sister on the phone while we got in some fresh air.
Carb-loading has never been a problem for me.
Brooke came home from school and that made Skye’s day.
Brooke requested a picture with the rollie pollie that made it into the grass before I could get my camera out.
The normal afternoon activities happened.
And then Andrew’s cousin came over to watch Brooke and Knox. They love him so much that they cried (I’m not exaggerating) when we got home because he is so much more fun than us.
Andrew and I are both so indecisive that we have to flip a coin when trying to decide where to go to dinner.
Oregano’s won. \
Skye is still at an age where she is able to join our dates easily because she just kind of hangs out and stares at us the whole time (as long as I fill her up with food before we leave).
After dinner we hung out at the Provo temple. We talked about a few of the things that happened on our first date like the fact that he wondered how it was possible for me to be able to talk so fast (I was nervous!), how he lost his wallet (but found it), how we both kind of overshared our life situations and most importantly how he had the idea that we should get our own desserts after dinner ( <— one of the reasons I knew he was the one, I don’t want to share desserts).
I am so sorry Skye, someday you will be able to try some ice cream with us.
I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with my watch for my race tomorrow. I think I’ll keep it set to show distance, lap pace and average pace but I’d love to hear what you have on your GPS screen while you run. Or maybe I should just cover it with tape so that I run based off of effort but then there is a chance I will go out way too fast.
I just have a few Friday Favorites to share with you today!
*The 5 year olds sometimes wake up a bit grumpy and Andrew found a solution to the problem. He just has Skye wake them up now for school and they wake up a million times happier this way ha. I mean how could you be grumpy waking up to her little face?
*My current favorite cereal salad (one of you told me that you called your cereal combinations a cereal salad so I have copied you because it makes me think I’m eating something healthier)… Lucky Charms, Life and Shredded Mini Wheats. Also, I’m that weird person that thinks soggy cereal > crunch cereal.
*I LOVE the Hyperions from Brooks. I just got these beauties because my last ones have too many miles on them. I’m hoping that a new pair of these motivates me to sign up to race a 5k.
*To go along with the above picture too, I love Gap jeans lately. I decided a few months ago to just get some new jeans that fit instead of worrying about fitting into my old jeans. I just got these and they are my favorite now.
*It’s official—> the Apples & Cinnamon huma gels are my favorite fuel right now so I bought a big pack of them. Once I go through these I’m sure I’ll be sick of them and will need a new flavor.
*Today will be Skye’s first time to a race expo. I see hundreds of these together over the course of her life.
*Skye is so proud of her tongue lately she just wants to show it off at any chance possible so this is her Friday Favorite:

Heather!!! “I’ve been running consistently for a little over a year now, but I don’t race very much. Over the weekend I ran my 2nd 5k in my little hometown. In the first one I was not at all prepared, I started way too fast (trying to keep up with my speedy friend) and ended up having to walk some to recover. This time my goal was just to run the whole thing- and I did! I even PR’d! My son and some friends came to cheer me on at the finish line, the weather was perfect on Saturday and it ended up being a really fun race! I’m already looking forward to the next one, and hopefully increasing the distance!”
Have any fun weekend plans?
Soggy or crunchy cereal? Have any favorite combinations of cereal lately?
