I just can’t get over how nice it is now to be able to just go for a walk whenever we want to outside. We had a long winter and we are just going to celebrate spring as much as possible.
It was crazy sock day at school yesterday and this is about as crazy as our socks get over here.
My sister and I got busy making pizzas for dinner. We celebrated Andrew and my mom’s birthday last night! Her recipe for this pizza is HERE.
Opening Day = Andrew’s happiness!
Turns out the exhaustion from the ultra is kicking in a bit… Knox asked me why I was wearing different shoes after I had been wearing around these two shoes for THIRTY minutes without realizing they were different shoes.
They thought I was pretty cool for climbing to the top of the monkey bars with them.
And then we had everyone over for dinner…
+ Cake and ice cream.
Time for a few Friday Favorites (affiliate links included)!!
*Andrew and I were over at a friend’s house earlier this week and they had THIS ICE CREAM SET . Brooke and Skye went crazy over it and played with it non-stop the entire time. These friends were telling me it was one of their top two most played with toys in their house so I ordered one for our house.
They haven’t stopped playing with it but I always feel a little bad when Skye assumes that it is real ice cream.
*The Tootsie Roll Eggs are officially the best Easter candy on the market. I will stand by this opinion of mine forever. Thanks Maggie for sending them over:)
*I get a lot of questions from people wondering how I hold my phone when I run—> Koala Clip. It is the absolute best and you don’t even feel it on your back (plus it is easy to access when you need it).
You can use code HRG10 to get 10% off!
*Megan D sent this to me the day after my race and it made me laugh so hard. We do know we don’t have to do this right?
*Skye’s Friday favorite, she got a drop of my coke on her finger and this was her reaction to how it tasted when I wasn’t paying attention. I get it Skye but you won’t get another taste of that for a few decades;). I’ve told you this already but seriously, nothing tasted better than soda during those final miles and afterwards. I wanted to take a bath in it.
*MY PLAYLIST! I loved it, I sang to it and it was just what I needed. Toby sent me this song beforehand and I must have listened to it a dozen times. I felt like Sara Bareilles was speaking to my soul as I was doing something UNCHARTED for me during the race.
Here was the rest of my playlist with some very random throwbacks that I know every word to (and the dance… I’m looking at you Soulja Boy):
Have any favorite things from this week?
What type of shoes do you wear most often outside of running?
Looking forward to anything this weekend?
What’s your run today? Anyone have a long run this weekend?
