By some miracle we made it to school on time after the time switch this last weekend… it was rough getting everyone up but it happened.
I got out for some miles with Emilee. I have to brag about her for a minute… she hit 100 miles last week (in 6 days, she takes a rest day each week too). I cannot wait to see how she does in Boston!
Skye was just so thrilled that she found her tutu.
Another soccer game (Brooke’s bff came with us and Knox has a crush on this friend… it’s already starting! They will just be dating each other’s friends in high school ha).
We had steak and chicken fajitas for dinner and chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream for dessert!
Let’s talk about some tangents.
*On Sunday we invited my family over for nachos and they were a hit! I cooked chicken in the crockpot with a bunch of salsa and then did a layer of chips, cheese, shredded chicken, red onions and beans and then cooked it in the oven until the cheese was melted. I then topped it with avocado, tomatoes, cilantro and sour cream and it was SO good. We will definitely be making this again and maybe try my sweet potato nachos combo with it too!
*Skye is all about parties and she gets so excited when everyone comes over. She can’t choose a dress to party in so she ended up wearing FOUR different dresses just while we were eating… she just kept changing her mind.
*Popcorn made on the stovetop was one of my favorite childhood foods that my mom always made. We made it with the kids (with extra butter and salt) for the first time and they told us to never buy the bagged kind again because they only want this stuff… I have to agree with them. We followed this recipe and added a whole lot of butter and salt on top. It’s even better than air-popped or microwave, try it if you haven’t!
*Andrew’s great uncle brought to church to show me the sandals that the Raramuri (which means, ’those who run fast’) Runners run ULTRA-MARATHONS in. He will be running their ultra-marathon in their hometown that is a 100k and I can’t wait to hear all about it.
If you have 6 minutes then check out this clip about these amazing people!
*Speaking of ultra-marathons, we came across one during our trail run on Saturday. The runners had 6 hours or 12 hours to see how many times they could run from where I was standing for this picture to the peak of this mountain. My goal is to run up it once in the next few weeks because these runners inspired me so much.
*Every Sunday night Megan posts around 20 of the most hilarious memes ever to help everyone start their week off right. Andrew sent this one to me because he said he relates very deeply with it. Why is it so hard to remember if we turned them off or not?!
*Samantha sent this to me and maybe this is why I can handle crazy running events yet a paper cut ruins my day;). Running is exercise induced discomfort and I can handle that… pain is what I don’t like.
*Thank you skiing for making me love this winter more than I ever have before and now we get to enjoy spring!
*It’s Andrew’s birthday week and I’m looking forward to Tucanos with him on Saturday, all of the mountain-bike shops and celebrating him like crazy.
He has Skye’s heart:
What food reminds you most of your childhood?
Have you ever run barefoot or in shoes that don’t look like the running shoes we see out often?
Kettle corn or butter popcorn? Any delicious popcorn recipes for me to try?
