Seven miles with Candice to start out my Thursday!
She is training for Boston right now so I’m going to join her for as many runs as possible during her training. PS we went to Boston together in 2015. I sure wish I was joining her this next year too!
How we survive running in the winter here.
She sent me home with two bags of caramel corn and while it was a dilemma on the drive home, I did in fact give one of the bags to Andrew;)
I love her hair after a good nap.
Once Brooke was done with school we went on a little date together before she leaves today for a week. She held my hand the entire time… I was pretty happy about that.
For part of our date we went to a place where you pay for a cup and then can fill it up with everything you want. My cup resembled a child’s choice and Brooke’s resembled more of an adult’s choice.
From there we picked up the rest of the family and met my brother and his family (the ones from Kentucky) at In-N-Out for dinner.
They have a little girl that is three months older than Skye so it will be fun to see them grow up together (they are moving closer soon).
Time for some Friday Favorites:
*I’m just thrilled that scrunchies are coming back so that Brooke gets to experience something that was a big part of my life as a kid:).
*My friend was cleaning her kitchen with these so I went home and bought them on Amazon that night. They are all purpose cleaners and smell like heaven. I already love cleaning my kitchen (I got this weird trait from my mom) and the smell of these just takes it to the next level.
*Not the prettiest picture and I took it once I was halfway done with it but this is a lunch that I eat probably two times a week. TJ’s frozen pesto tortellini frozen dinner + grilled chicken (we make a bunch and then use it throughout the week) + I usually add some spinach or broccoli too + a banana with almond butter on the side = quickest easiest lunch.
I also love to combine their frozen macaroni and cheese and steamed broccoli too. Most of the time I crave warm lunches in the winter.
*This long sleeve shirt from Urban Outfitters. It is quite comfortable and I want it in every color now!
*I have always loved baths and now I love them even more at our new house. When we walked through this house during the open house I may have gotten in the bathtub to just test it out. I fell deeply in love with it. I love a good bath bomb and would LOVE to hear some of your favorites!
*These face masks at TJs feel so so good. I have no idea if they really work but they sure feel good.
*MY MOM’S HOMEMADE CROCKPOT CHOCOLATE. Every year I look forward to this chocolaty goodness.
*You may wonder who in the world buys and loves white chocolate candy bars… Me. Me. Me. This one is just so good and if you hate white chocolate, I’ll give you my address so you can just mail it to me.
*The best mug on the planet. It keeps my hot chocolate warm and toasty for so much longer and helps me to spill less.
I love hearing from you guys about the things you are doing… send them to [email protected]
Sydney!!! “I wanted to send you two running accomplishments! The first being my training is starting to really click and what used to feel long is now feeling shorter!! This is my favorite time in a training cycle. I’m just base building for the Vermont Marathon right now but dang am I having fun! The second accomplishment is I am writing a book of short stories and poems about being a gal who runs long distance! I finally stopped letting fear of what other folks might think or fear of judgment hold me back and created the social media (Instagram: @runwildandbepoetry) and website (here) for the book! It feels amazing to pursue this dream!”
Are you a fan of baths? Have any favorite bath products that you love? SHARE PLEASE so that I can try them.
Thoughts on white chocolate?!
What are your weekend plans? Traveling anywhere for the holidays?
Have a long run this weekend?
