I started off my Thursday with 8 miles. I’m finding myself running these days like I’m cross country skiing and not lifting up my feet/knees very much at all so I’m going to work on that during today’s run.
I love when I find random things along the way on my runs…
Brooke had her last day of tennis and they gave her a gatorade at the end so that made her day. PS I love Target’s activewear line for girls. I want everything they have in my size.
A different brother (the one that wrote this post) came into town yesterday so we went to lunch with them. Skye went crazy over the grilled pineapple and Andrew made sure to wear his Angels jersey because my brother is a big Dodgers fan.
While we were eating I found out that my brother calls salad dressing—> Lettuce Lotion.
And then we went and played pickleball. We had a lot of people playing so we took up a few courts for our families to play.
PS my sister and I decided we are going to join a pickleball league so that will be exciting.
I played a few games but then took it easy with Skye in the shade because it was 94 degrees.
Non-stop fun with cousins is exhausting:
I have some favorite things this week to share!
*We have officially used our Pickleball set every single day since we bought it. We bought a driveway set so that we could play whenever we wanted or play when the kids are asleep etc. The kids love it too and I highly recommend ours (HERE) if you are needing one. Our sporting goods store (Als) had it on sale for $75 so if you live in the area, grab it there.
*My sister brought over her salad spinner the other night and told me that this needs to be a Friday Favorite (and that I need to get one too ha;). She uses it multiple times a week to clean and dry her lettuce and thinks everybody needs one.
*Brooke is ALL about joining me in my 3492 nightly routines that I do before bed and we just started a new one. We have both been using some of this lotion on our hands before we sleep and the smell really does help us to feel calm.
*LOVED this episode last week with Ali and Jess Sims and now I really think we need a Peloton so that I can take her classes.
*I bought another pair of the joggers. These are the teal version and you just can’t beat how incredibly soft they are for $13.99. They work perfect for being out and running errands and also for every second you are at home like what I’ve been doing:)
*Ms. Chef over here made pancakes for 7 kids the other day and they tasted amazing. We finally got a griddle and it makes life so much easier (and I feel better about Brooke using this vs the stove) and it makes it so much easier to feed big groups of people.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
