I decided that my Thursday morning needed something a little different so I went to the track to run in circles for a bit.
At the track I did 6 x 400s around a 7:50 pace with 200m recovery jogs. This is the time of year when things for my marathon training usually ramp up and so it felt good to get moving and to do something different even though I’m not training for anything.
I am guessing by my next watch picture we won’t be able to see my feet at all:)
We had a very low key day at home which included a pedicure/manicure for Skye.
But at night we had our family over to celebrate Brooke’s birthday (her bday is tomorrow:)!
A blurry picture but it is of my dad and Knox discussing WWII… they could both talk about it for days.
Brooke requested pasta for dinner and this Pasta Primavera was amazing! We will definitely be making it again.
This cantaloupe salad included cantaloupe that was mixed with a pear and it was heavenly.
Dessert of course included a lot of sprinkles.
We finished off her family birthday party like we always do… with a piñata!
I have a few favorite things to share today!
*I cannot tell you how many times I have listened to this song on repeat already. It’s a few years old but new to me and I love it.
*It’s impossible to have too many pairs of sweats. I bought these tie-dye sweats because I couldn’t get over how cute they are and once they arrived I realized they are also the softest sweats. Brooke wants me to find a pair for her now. PS when I went to order them they said they would take about a month to get here but they only took 3 days so I’m not sure if that is normal or not.
*I wanted to fancy up Brooke’s birthday cake so I picked up this set (they can ship it too) from the The Sweet Tooth Factory! Brooke loved it.
*THIS. Why would we ever expect anything different from our bodies?!
*This story that my mom shared on Facebook!

What plans do you have for this weekend?
What size is your foot?
