My sister had our kids over for a cousin sleepover which meant Andrew and I were able to go on a run together. He had trails scheduled on his plan so we went for it (even though we both woke up with zero motivation ha). I haven’t done trails in MONTHS and I was expecting to be hiking a lot of the way but I was able to run more than I thought and we did 4 miles on the trails w/ 679 ft of elevation gain. Running with Andrew must be my good luck charm.
I was definitely reminded during this run that trail running puts me in the best mood and makes me so happy… I really think it was a big part of getting me my 10 minute marathon pr last year too. I’ll be on them a lot in 2021.
Random story but I woke up in the middle of Thursday night to Andrew snapping over and over again and he was dead asleep. He told me later that in his dream he was snapping at people ha and he was doing it in real life too.
Andrew went to a work training and I did 3 more miles on the streets before picking up the kids. They had the best time ever and my sister even sent them home with new Cosmo stuffed animals.
Then we had different cousins over and Skye is positive that she is no different than the 7-12 year old girls that she was hanging out with most of the morning.
I can’t stop eating sticky finger salads.
And Andrew and Knox went out on a date together. We have started doing 2 week uninterrupted parent time this summer with Knox so he will be gone for the next 2 weeks and then we will have him for 2 weeks straight in August. We are going to miss him a lot but he is going to have a blast.
Of course they had pepperoni pizza.
The twins hung out too.
Then we just all hung out together at home.
I have some Friday Favorites to share today!
*I’m all about the Amazon fashion now. I got these new joggers and they feel like butter on my body. I saw my sister and sister-in-law the other night and as soon as they saw my joggers and felt them they had me send them the link right that second. They are only $15 and I want to live in them. They have a ton of colors too! My shirt and shoes are also Amazon loves.
*Our family’s current favorite game—> Bananagrams. We can’t stop playing it.
*I decided it was time to get a new Thread Wallet (my last one was a few years old and getting pretty dirty). I love this thing so much because it holds my cards in there so perfectly and makes it so I always have my cards and keys together. Before I had one = I lost my cards all of the time but I never lose them anymore.
*Brooke loves crafts and I am not good at crafts so when I see one online that I think I can handle, I go for it ha. These girls were showing how their kids paint rocks with this paint set and I bought it right away. It is perfect and Skye loves doing it too. Brooke is creating a little ‘painted rocks garden’ in our yard and it’s pretty adorable. This set comes with 18 colors and will last us a very long time (now I need to find some other projects for them to do using them too).
*Uplift Crossback. My chest is needing major support right now and the Uplift Crossback is giving me all of the support that I need. This bra will be getting me through pregnancy and Brooks has a great run bra finder to help you figure out the right run bra for you. Oh and the Juno is another favorite for me right now!
Have a favorite run bra lately!?
Do you ever sleep talk or sleep walk etc?
Favorite board game type of game to play these days?
Would you rather run on the trails or the roads?
-I think my perfect combo is 4 days on the roads and 2 days on the trails per week.
