I switched from my running shoes to boots yesterday morning to go pick up Andrew’s request for donuts (I have helped him to see the light with the love for donuts).
31 years old!
The kids were not thrilled that they had to go to school on Andrew’s birthday…. They were confused why school wasn’t cancelled for this holiday.
Andrew’s request for his birthday = to do nothing besides hang out at home and just relax all day. After a few months of pure craziness for him, having nothing on his schedule was his biggest dream. We got him a Nintendo Switch for his birthday so he was hanging out with Zelda. Skye and I went to Burn. Okay, this is officially my last time before the race (words you never thought you would hear me say—> I’m hooked on strength training).
Jicama, cucumbers, peppers, avocado, chicken, carrots and lettuce to make a ginormous salad. We sometimes buy extra dressing at restaurants to use later on our salads at home.
Mario Cart for the win!
I started to feel a cold coming on in the afternoon which means I am loading up on Sambucol. I swear it works for me (or maybe it’s just the placebo effect).
And for dinner Andrew chose pizza at home so that Skye could just crawl around free while we ate.
Let’s get talking about some of my favorite things this week (affiliate links included)!
*This book. I was on the library’s waiting list for quite a while to read it and when I finally got it, I read it very fast. I cried so many times throughout the book and look up to Anthony Hinton in so many ways. Anthony was put on death row for a crime that he did not commit for 30 years before he was finally released.
From the book:
*The Bentgo box for Brooke’s lunches. Tamara told me about these and we are obsessed. It keeps everything right where it should be and super fresh. It’s helping me get a little more creative with Brooke’s lunches too. PS it’s an Amazon deal today too!
*Summer is getting closer which means I’m switching in my beanies for hats when I don’t want to do my hair… and for my runs. I bought this one at a running store (and now I want all of the colors they offer).
*And this one to wear on RACE DAY!
*A snack that we found at Costco that is so easy to just throw in my diaper bag. Every single one of us love them. Costco always has our backs;)
*These stance running socks that say ‘You Got This’ on the top… just the reminder I need!
*Both the flour and corn tortillas from Tortilla Land are my favorites because you cook them yourself at home. They taste so fresh and delicious.
*This flyer about Des Linden… ‘To win Boston I stayed in the moment for 9,594 moments.’ Goosebumps. That’s what it is all about… just stay in the moment and I’ll be doing that next weekend.
*I saw these at the running store, didn’t buy them and now I wish I did. I wanted to hear if any of you have tried them? What were your thoughts?
Has anyone tried anything besides safety pins to put on your race bib?
Do you like to wear hats or visors when you run? What brands do you love?
What do you have going on this weekend? Anything races or anything fun for St. Patrick’s Day?
What’s a favorite from your week?
