Good morning! I hope your day is off to a great start. Let’s get chatting about our Thursday.
My sister had to be back to her house by a certain time which meant it felt like we were FLYING on our run yesterday. I’m calling this my tempo run for the week and I came home very proud.
I put out the mat to stretch but decided that the mat yesterday was made for just lying there and relaxing instead of stretching so the kids joined me in that.
The biggest event on our schedule yesterday was Grandma School. My parents are going above and beyond for this for Brooke and Knox and I feel so incredibly grateful.
My mom had her entire main living area set up for them along with a full agenda planned for the day. This is a big silver lining for us during this time in the world…. My kids will remember this special time that they get with my parents for the rest of their lives. They are learning so much from them and it made me cry again (so far this 3rd trimester has made me cry multiple times a day) on the drive home thinking about how amazing this experience is for my kids.
Skye was very sad that she wasn’t staying (she makes it a little difficult for the big kids to learn if she is around:) but I think she is enjoying her one-on-one time with me. We had to stop at the store on the way home (another bonus is my mom lives by the most beautiful grocery store that is so fun to shop at) and Skye scored her favorite yogurt while we were there. Those Chobani Flip yogurts are heavenly in Skye’s opinion.
Our kids are obsessed with Panda Express so I wanted to try to make their favorite parts about Panda at home—> Fried Rice and Chow Mien! Both recipes were super easy and now we have a lot of leftovers too.
Maybe my form of nesting is actually cooking and baking because this is not normal for me but I made apple crisp afterwards with apples from our apple tree!
Time for a few of my favorite things this week!
*I rotate through shampoos randomly but my sister has used the MATRIX shampoo and conditioner for at least a decade without fail. It really is just the best and I always get so excited when I actually remember to order it and have it because it makes my hair feel amazing and look a little bit more like my sister’s hair:)
*Julie recommended this book on a post last week and I ordered it right away. I was hooked from the beginning. It is a murder mystery that kept me guessing (and a bit creeped out) the whole time and now I wish I wouldn’t have read it so fast because I want MORE…
*This beautiful story. ‘I see the world with the realization that we love big.’
