Good morning! Can you believe that it is almost AUGUST? It feels like this year has gone by at a snail’s pace but then I realized we are almost in August and that just felt crazy to me.
It was a hot and humid run for us so when I saw this later on from Megan I had to laugh because I do this way too often.. Can’t wait for those two weeks of fall running;)
After my run I did Becky’s pregnancy full body workout with a little buddy behind me. With each week of pregnancy I can feel more and more muscles not wanting to fire (especially when I run) and that is helping me to feel motivated to stick with some strength training each week.
Knox left for two days and he requested crepes for breakfast while we played with his army set before leaving!
We had another doctor’s appointment to go to and the baby is doing well! I haven’t felt the baby kick/move as much as I did with the girls’ pregnancies but we found out yesterday that is because with this one I have an anterior placenta. I was very relieved that that was the reason I don’t feel him/her as often as I was expecting.
Going for Costco’s ice cream sundae after the doctor’s appointment was a great idea.
Yesterday in the comments, Karin told me about a gnocchi with a 4 cheese sauce that she got at Costco and I had to copy her. You guys influence me all of the time;). All four of us loved it and we added some roasted brussel sprouts to the side for a winning meal.
A few tangents to talk about this morning!
*Skye is on cloud 9 when I paint her nails (I use this set for the girls and it comes with stickers etc too). I have a weird obsession with always having my nails painted so I passed it down to her.
*Brooke told me that when she has her owl stained glass hanging from the outside of her door that it means she is sleeping and doesn’t want to be disturbed, ha. We take our sleep very seriously over here. Also, this is a random story I forgot to tell you… My sister said that when she had my kids sleep over a few weeks ago they were driving back to her house that night and her little boys were talking about what they wanted to do in the morning. As the boys were talking about their morning plans Skye looked at them and told them to not wake her up early, ha! Let’s just hope this next baby loves sleep too.
*Andrew has been finishing up his long runs and getting in the hot tub lately (he finishes around midnight). He has the temperature of the hot tub turned down a bit so it’s not crazy hot but he says it feels so good on his muscles afterwards. I can’t wait to start using this after my runs in the winter!
*Another purchase that was made because of you guys (thanks Jenn!). The fruit by the foot Starburst edition. They seriously taste just like Starburst and we have been bringing them on our hikes.
*Just in case you love every interview you can listen to/watch from Des Linden like I do, here is a new one:
*I love coming across articles/posts about things that people are just now learning that might be pretty obvious/common knowledge to everyone else. This two were DEFINITELY news to me:
I had never seen the arrow until now!
Anything that you’ve recently learned that seems to be something that most other people already knew?!
What about you… has this year felt like it’s gone by slow, fast or somewhere in between?
When you watch a show/movie that isn’t on tv, what app is it usually through? Disney+, Hulu, Netflix, other? <–Just for my own curiosity.
What is your absolute favorite month of the year for running?
-October because that is when the St. George marathon is and the temperatures during that time of year are just heavenly.
