*WHY I RUN. A GUEST POST FROM MY PILOT BROTHER! (Turns out he needs to start a blog because his post had higher views than I have had in a long time ha)
Let’s talk about some things that have happened recently…
Recently Took this picture:
Recently Ate this… Trader Joe’s has the best treats.
Recently taught the 8 year olds at church and the girls wore polka dot dresses.
Recently Bought this chalkboard to put up our weekly dinners.
Recently Started Reading this book w/Brooke so I can learn how to help her with her math over the years (thanks Kristin for the suggestion, it’s awesome):
Recently Wondered why Skye always chooses to sit on my head when there is an entire bed for her to sit on.
Recently Followed brittanyanne278 for her inspiring/positive outlook on life. She has been through so much (she used to be a big runner and then was in a terrible accident and is now paraplegic) yet just shares so much goodness and brightness. I really look up to her.
Recently Loved (and still love) this tinted sunscreen/moisturizer each morning. When I went for my hydrafacial the esthetician recommended this stuff for me and I’ve been obsessed ever since.
Recently Thought About how life changing it is (I’ve tried both multiple times;) to work towards being better rather than bitter when life gets hard.
Recently Forgot how old I am and had to figure it out based on what year I was born.
Recently Enjoyed Normal ice cream for the first time (if you are ever in Salt Lake City PLEASE go there). Skye grabbed Andrew’s ice cream so fast that she knocked it off the cone a few seconds after this picture was taken.
Recently Played Soggy Doggy. Skye is skeptical of it but Brooke and Knox are currently obsessed with this game and we play it a few times a week.
… along with a lot of Operation.
Recently Learned from Kate how to set downtime on your iPhone (so that you just get phone calls and texts but don’t find yourself 45 minutes deep into IG without realizing when you should be sleeping or getting ready to sleep… I also set mine for a few hours after the kids get home from school/dinner so that I am not finding myself on my phone but can still take pictures)… Settings—> Screen time—> Downtime:
Recently Laughed about this little clip my brother sent me… ps why haven’t I thought about doing a donut trail mix?
And from what Mindy posted:
Recently Watched Made To Be Broken on Netflix. SUCH a good documentary about Karl Meltzer trying to beat the record for the Appalachian Trail (2,189 miles.. with a gain/loss of over 464,464 ft).
Recently Dreamed about moving to Hawaii for the next three months.
Recently Smiled when I saw on Skye’s camera that Brooke darted into Skye’s room when she woke up to give her a hug.
Recently Added this to the top of our sideboard (we used to have holiday decorations here) and I love how simple it looks:
PS I have a Skye update going up this afternoon on HRG Baby so check back for that!
