Today’s post is a bit short because Brookie has croup. I’m so busy taking care of her (and part of this post I wrote the day before:) but here is how our Thanksgiving looked like. I hope yours was a great one!
The morning started off with 9 miles @ 8:24 average pace. When Brooke woke up she wasn’t feeling great but it didn’t get bad until the evening.
Knox and I went to visit Mer (she hurt her foot so she wasn’t able to come to Thanksgiving).
Skye fit right in with the girl cousins.
Lots of cooking, cleaning and sampling.
Skye was the first one to face plant into the rolls.
And then we all dug in and yes, I put sheets on our couch because I love it so much and didn’t want food to somehow get on it ha.
My brother-in-law’s first (of two) 10 lb plates of food… he needs to enter an eating contest.
Dessert! If you haven’t made my family’s date bars then you need to now (recipe HERE).
Around 6 is when Brooke’s breathing got really bad and she started having a barking cough. We got her to see someone and the steroid they gave her for croup helped pretty quickly but she still had a pretty rough night.
I have a few Friday favorites to share (affiliate links included).
*MY FAVORITE JEANS on the planet (that I wear multiple times a week are finally on sale which they never are) HERE!! They are the black ones with buttons on the front that I told you about a few weeks ago. Use the code Dealwithit for 25% off.
We saw Instant Family last week and it was SO good. Andrew and I laughed so hard (along with cried) and absolutely loved it. One of my brothers adopted through Foster Care too and I love that niece of mine so much and we are so lucky to have her.
*The way that Beretta looks at Andrew when he tells her we are going to go on a walk.

Sloan!!! “The school I teach at (which is also the school I grew up at) hosts a 5k every year as a fundraiser. Last year I did not run the time I was hoping for and felt absolutely horrible. This year I was able to drop my time significantly and feel much better! I ended up coming in 5th overall and finished 1st for the females. It’s so fun doing races with family! My brother finished 1st in his age group and I’m positive he would have run even faster had he not had a double side stitch. I coach cross country and we had a great turn out from our boys and girls team. We are very hopeful about the future of our program. This race always reminds me how fun racing can be if we let it. I’m thankful for family, running, and running with family.”
