HAPPY BIRTHDAY SKYE! Silentish Saturday Things.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SKYE!!

I seriously cannot believe that she is now one.  This year flew by!  She has brought so much happiness to our family and has brought us all even closer together.

I feel beyond lucky to be her mama.

It’s crazy how much she has changed over the last year.

Our Friday—>  We all woke up about 25 minutes before we needed to leave and somehow made it to school on time.

Treadmill day.  8 miles @ 8:27 average with very sore legs from the snow running the day before.

After school—>  Drive up to SLC.

The coolest vending machine in the world…You can donate cows, goats, sewing machines, food, glasses etc to those in need and we waited in line to do this for about 45 minutes.  There were SO many people donating and we got there before it was busy… so cool!

Happy birthday, sweet Skye!

Today, I am meeting up with a running friend to hit some trails before driving up North for a 49er game tomorrow. My sister and BFF are coming along so I am super excited and we’re hitting up the Lululemon outlet on the way there!

Have a great weekend! My bday is on Thursday and my sister’s was this last Thursday. It’s a great month for birthdays!

I cannot believe how much Skye has changed either! She is adorable! I am glad she had such a nice family celebration on the 1st anniversary of her birth! This is a sign of a full happy life I am sure.

Today my parents are in town and they will join us at our son’s Basketball class. Next Chick-fil-a (our son’s self-imposed tradition after Basketball) for lunch, and then swimming at the YMCA.

Reply

Oh thank you so much:) Enjoy your time with your parents and I love that tradition! Thanks Tonya.

Today is my rest day and they’re calling for a winter storm here in East, TN so I’m stoked. :-D My 3 things…

3. Going to a live nativity scene OR a Christmas parade before the snow comes

Happy Saturday!!!

Happy Birthday Skye!! I have a 5 month old and it’s so crazy how fast time is flying! She’ll be one before I know it. Today we are going sledding, to Waffle love ❤️ 😄 and stake conference. I recently found your blog and I just love it! You’ve helped me get excited about running again! I’m doing a 10k, a half and a marathon (st George) next year! Thanks for your positivity and running tips!

My girls are headed to a Christmas party at my Mom’s neighborhood and I think my husband said we are looking for a new car. I need a new car but I don’t want to look AT ALL. Anyone have a Kia Sorento?? I need something not too big, with 3rd row option, and decent in the snow, with enough space for me to put my work therapy bag and some other materials. Then hoping to have a relaxing evening without kids which never happens. Laying off some workouts for a couple days as I have some annoying hip pain that I am fairly positive will go away if I just take a few days off, easier said then done…

Reply

I had one and loved it! My sister and aunt both have them and love them. They are nice affordable vehicles that look expensive. I would have gotten another but I needed a little more space behind the third row for cellos when we carpool. I loved mine.

Reply

Oh car shopping is not very fun… good luck! Let me know what you end up getting! You are being smart about taking some days off, you’ll be back to running pain free soon! YOU CAN DO IT:)

Reply

Oh and Happy Birthday Skye!!! My youngest just turned 8 and it goes by fast.

Reply

Happy birthday Ms. Skye!! I hope you have the most fabulous day :)

Three things I’m doing today:
1. Short run (Ps – Went to a PT yesterday and they did a full exam on my knee. Nothing horribly wrong with it, they tested for any soft tissue tears and even did an x-ray. It seems like my right glute doesn’t activate at all and my hips are a little uneven BUT I’m gonna be okay!!)
2. Definitely taking Eve to the dog park at some point because I’ve neglected all her all week
3. Girlfriends holiday party this evening! Friends + Christmas pajamas + Cookie making :)

Have a great weekend!!

Reply

YES… I’m so glad you are going to be okay! Hallelujah:) Enjoy the holiday party and the dog park. Thanks Arthi!

Happy Birthday Skye! She is cutest. I hope she has a great day.

Today is my daughter’s first ballet performance. She is a cherry! Then it’s off to a neighborhood progressive Christmas Dinner. Our neighborhood loves getting together. I could not ask for a better place to live. Then I need to do gift wrapping for my daughter’s 4th Birthday next week. Time definitely goes by too fast with little ones!

Reply

Oh enjoy the ballet performance, this is going to be amazing. I am so happy you love your neighborhood… that progressive Christmas Dinner sounds like a blast (and delicious). 4th birthday… it really does just zoom by. Have so much fun!

Reply

Happy birthday, Skye!!! I hope you have a wonderful celebration with your family!❤️

Today, I’m going with a teacher friend to shop for school books at the Scholastic Warehouse sale, wrapping the start of presents, and finishing up the Christmas cards!

Reply

Enjoy Jenny! Sounds like a really great day. Thank you!

Happy Birthday, Skye! The year flew by.

Three things……cookies, cookies, and more cookies. It Christmas cookie baking day…..with a run and chic-fil-a thrown in.

Enjoy Skye’s first b-day! I think the first birthday is most exciting for parents. I guess we get to look back and see how far our little babies have come in a year and think about how far they’ll go in the next year.

Reply

Yes, yes and yes… it really is. It’s a fun celebration to see how we did it all together:) Thanks Lee! Enjoy the cookies, running and chic-fil-a!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SKYE!!! I can’t believe she’s a year old already, either. I feel like I just read your post about Brooke’s first birthday. I hope everyone has a wonderful day celebrating Skye, the cutie pie! Also, the binky in her mouth…!!! My first and my last were my only binky babies and I swear my favorite thing in the world was always their binky smiles! 🥰 Ah, take me back! Well, some days, haha!

Today for us… making a casserole for the ward Christmas breakfast (in the oven), 16 year old off to the ACT (check), making hats for kids at the outpatient center at the local children’s hospital, and sorting/repackaging/prepping my Disneyland necklaces for my Etsy store restock (alright, that was four things…sorry). Not to brag or anything, but it’s pretty exciting around our house today, haha! 🤪

Happy birthday again to Skye. I really hope you and Andrew get a moment to soak it all in, too. I know you each have been through difficult times where you may not have thought a day like today would happen for you, but here it is! I’m happy for your entire family, Janae! ❤️

Happy birthday Skye!! Time sure flies when you have kids!!

It was my middle child’s bday yesterday, she turned 12. We are doing her party today and she’s a big cat lover so she requested to go to a cat shelter where you can pay to hang out and lounge with some nice adoptable cats. Should be fun!

Have a great weekend!!!

Happy birthday Skye!!

I need to come to Utah. Your pictures are so pretty! Also, I love your boots!

Reply

Happy Birthday, Skye!!! It was my daughter’s birthday too, and she turned….. 20! I’ve been looking at her baby pictures and reminiscing… missing those sweet baby days!

We’re going to another daughter’s piano recital, this AM, helping a friend work on building her house, and then practicing a song I get to play organ WITH A GUY WHO’s PLAYING THE BAGPIPES in our Christmas church service on the 23rd!!! Going to be epic! Getting supplies to make gingerbread houses with the family. And this evening is my running girls dinner at one of their homes- Ahhh, ❤️ them! Going to be a great day!

Happy birthday to a sweet girl whose smile lights up the room! I hope that even Beretta can find his own special way of wishing you a happy birthday!!

This morning I taught Body Flow when I didn’t really want to–I’m just tired and achey right now from so much time sitting down grading (and so much time to sit down over the rest of the week ahead of me…), but it wound up being a really solid class. I apologized in advance for any choreography screw-ups and for having the same playlist as the week before because it’s finals time and I am spending so much time grading papers. The people in class seemed to be VERY kind and awesome and understanding. And somehow by the end of class it felt as magical as a class where I am on my game. I have to work at the store all afternoon, and I am HOPING LIKE CRAZY that I have nice customers coming into the store nistead of some of the very entitled-acting people we can get. And tonight, I am grading papers.

Last weekend was for celebrating my 5K (even when I “pre-gamed” by having ice cream and cake the day before my run), and this weekend is for putting my head down and just getting WORK done. And once all of the work is totally done? A very luxurious pedicure (and paying extra for the ‘sports pedicure’ treatment with extra sugar scrub on the legs…) and manicure. Every dang penny will be worth it!

Happy birthday, Skye!

I did my long run (10 miles) in a complete downpour! I had to slow in some places due to humongous puddles in the road, but I stayed upright and kept moving. Now I’m recovering like it’s my job.

Happy Birthday Skye! Today is my daughter’s 1st birthday too! Happy celebrating!

NO WAY!!! I LOVE IT!! Have the best time celebrating her today:)

Happy happy birthday Skye!!!

Today, I ran a half-marathon! I was decidedly undertrained for it and I’ve been struggling with IT bands, but I made it through! 10:41 min/mile avg pace!! Time for a massage and movie with the very supportive husband. :)

Happy *birth* day to YOU and Herzich Geburtstag (happy birthday) to Skye!

Why doesn’t pregnancy fly by as fast as the first year?! You have the sweetest family. Enjoy your weekend!

Happy 1st bday Skye! That 1st bday is the best! I ran a marathon today! What jacket do you wear for running in the rain? I ran that entire race in the rain and 4 hours in the rain is a looong time. So i was freezing for the majority of it. And i was wishing I had a better cover for that. My thin jacket just soaked up the rain. Not my time goal as my body crashed hard last 3 miles but I did it when I thought about quitting!

Reply

Happy birthday Skye!!
That pasta is my favorite thing at the Cheesecake Factory!!!
Today I slept in, ran 3.5 cold miles, and ate Chick-fil-a :)

Reply

Happy birthday Skye! My three things – I had an awesome day! First – I ran a 12.5 mile leg in a 100 mile relay to raise awareness for multiple sclerosis. It was brutal because there was so much snow on the trails and it was so hilly. But I was able to feel in touch with nature and grateful the entire 4 hours it took me to finish! Second I drank the best hot cocoa and Pepsi to rehydrate. Third – watching the Hiesmsn trophy award ceremony with my husband!

Reply

Happy 1st birthday Skye! And well done Janae for doing such a great job with her and the other kiddos :)
Have a wonderful time together!

I just read every comment (catching up on your blog posts from the last couple weeks. my daughter is a few weeks younger than Skye, & she’s been keeping me super busy!) to see where Brooke’s cherry blossom hat is from. How has no one asked about this yet? haha I need it! Please share.
