Four out of five of us had a really great morning. Skye was not thrilled that she was not going right into their classrooms with Brooke and Knox.
Back to more routines and getting in the run even earlier because now the kids need to stop sleeping in until mid morning and get to school:). Emilee and I were talking about how it is going to take a few weeks to get back in the habit of being early early morning runners again. When it’s hard to get out of bed in the mornings now I’ll just remind myself of last winter and running at 4 a.m. in a blizzard for ultra training.
I am taking today off and then race day tomorrow! My legs are feeling fresher than they have since December haha.
Brooke woke up, had crepes (w/sprinkles on top) for breakfast and was so excited to see her signs out front!
So we’ve reached this stage in life with Brooke:)
Brooke requested that we come and bring Panda Express for lunch. This was Knox’s first time eating lunch at school so that was pretty exciting too.
Judging by this picture… Brooke had a great first day of school.
Brooke loved all of your comments (THANK YOU) and this comment from ‘Kimmy Gibbler’ made her so so happy…
We then went to classic skating. I’ve broken one bone and it was while rollerblading (I was racing my brother in his car) and luckily no bones were broken yesterday.
She then requested Pizza Factory with my parents and my nieces.
Followed by a very sprinklfied funfetti flavored cake.
Birthdays are my favorite but they are also exhausting… I was wasted by the end of the day ha!
Time for just a few of my favorite things right now!
*I have a few of these tanks in different colors (tons of colors to choose from and they are so soft) and I am really loving them!
*My current favorite Costco buys:
-The coconut almonds with dark chocolate are unreal and perfect snack anytime of day in my opinion:). I’ve told you about these before but just in case you missed that post and need some happiness in your life.
-The cilantro lime crema is SO good on tacos, nachos and anything else you want to put it on. This will definitely be a repeat buy for me.
*I was grocery shopping with Knox the other day and when he saw these he told me that he thought I would love them. I bought them and he was very right. I. LOVE. THESE. (Can you tell I have a thing for chocolate + almonds?)
*My mom brought this back from Hawaii and every time I put it on I want to eat it because it smells so good. No joke, the most delicious smelling body cream I have ever used. It makes me crave that pineapple dole whip from Disneyland every day now ha.
*I’ve had a few people ask me about what alarm we bought for Skye for our trip next week—> HERE it is! It only has 3.5 stars on Amazon and I’ll give my full review next week when we use it more but we have tested it out at home and the alarm is LOUD when the wristband gets wet. It fits really nicely on her wrist and she doesn’t mess around with it while it is on. A friend told me that their alarm went off when a little kid drooled on it so I’m sure there will be some false alarms on the trip (if she spills any liquids on it etc) but I just want to be as safe as possible while we are there.
*Thank you Target for the Our Generation brand of dolls/accessories. Brooke loves this brand of stuff and everything they sell is SOOOO much cheaper than American Girl Doll stuff.
Ever broken a bone? How?
Have anything you are looking forward to this weekend? A long run or race?
What brand of running tanks have you been really loving lately?
What’s your favorite type of lotion?
