The treadmill is really hard for me these days and I’ll leave it at that BUT I am very much for the fact that it makes it possible to run with kiddos when Andrew is gone. 8 miles @ 8:20 pace.
Weird fact I was thinking about with my back to back long runs this week—> The morning after my 20 miler I was pretty sore but then I did 16 miles that day and the next morning I wasn’t sore at all. I was tired and worn down but not sore… my theory is that the second long run just flushed out all of the lactic acid or something;).
Andrew left early to go to California to get Brooke.
Utah got hit with another snow storm so he barely made it to the airport on time to catch his flight because there were so many accidents on the freeway. Once he arrived to get Brooke their flight back was delayed a few hours to get back home so Andrew and Brooke went and hung out at Andrew’s grandparent’s house.
It snowed the entire day. It was gorgeous but Andrew is doing his 20 miler today so this should be very very interesting….
The snow inspired Knox to want to make Snow Ice Cream. I have never heard of making ice cream with snow but sure enough, I looked up a recipe and there were a ton of them!
We used this one… sugar, vanilla, milk and some food coloring.
These two finally made it on the plane back after a bunch of delays (Andrew has the worst luck with flying). He sent this picture. It felt so beyond good to have her back home again.
I have a few Friday Favorites to share with you today… In case you received any gift cards that you need to use up:)
*My favorite gift this Christmas—> The below picture from Andrew. He puts a lot of thought into his gifts and this one made me cry. You can get your own designed here.
*Also, TAKING BACK SUNDAY TICKETS!!! I have been to their concerts a few times… 15 years ago:). I listen to them all of the time still and can’t wait to go with Andrew.
*I bought this sweatshirt on Amazon because it was cheap, it looked really warm and different than anything I have. I was sending this picture to Andrew to show it to him ha and I look tired because I was exhausted. For the price it really is super soft and long enough for me… short tops on me are a big pet peeve of mine. It’s very cozy.
*We have a MINI Target here now in addition to our normal Target. I am standing at the front of the store taking the picture and there is the back.. it’s tiny and almost as fun as the normal big one.
*Brooke and I both have voted that this is the best brush on the planet. We both have a lot of hair and this detangler helps out big time!
*My new favorite duffel. Perfect for quick little getaways!
*We found little notes from Brooke that she left to surprise us with while she was gone in California over the break. Whales are Andrew’s absolute favorite (which is why we went swimming with whale sharks) so this picture she made for him made him tear up a little bit:)
*I have been listening to the podcast COLD the last few days and it is unreal. SO CREEPY.
*A new pair of Sorel Slippers. My last pair had seen their day so Andrew got me a new fluffy pair for Christmas. They just are the best.
*My friend posted this and I couldn’t agree more… cookies have been a part of each meal because that is just what I like to do in between two holidays.
Should Andrew brave running 20 miles in all of the fresh snow and craziness outside or run TWENTY MILES on a treadmill?!?
Have any fun weekend plans? ARE YOU READY FOR 2019?!?!
Do you like going to concerts? If you could get a free pair of tickets to see anyone in the world perform… who would it be?
Are you a slippers wearer?
