We tried to give you our toughest looks for the picture. I did 5.5 miles on my own and then the kids and I went out for 1.5 miles of run/walking together. Knox has decided to go for the ‘marathon in a month’ too so we have quite the team right now.
Things always get a little competitive when they run together… Knox is all about the fast sprints and then taking a break and Brooke is all about conserving energy to go longer without stopping. They switched off using Andrew’s Garmin throughout the run because that is also a source of competitiveness for them:)
A bit later on and we were off to my parents’ house for Brooke and Knox to go to grandma school. I am always just so amazed with my mom’s lesson plans that she has for them each week. Brooke asks me a few days a week what will happen with grandma school if our schools ever go back to normal because she is planning on grandma school to continue throughout the rest of her education:)
Then Andrew, Skye and I left and had a lunch date at 180 Tacos.
Followed by my current ding dong need.
Fast forward a few hours and absolutely nothing sounded good besides pizza so I cooked up some frozen ones from Costco.
But the kids made sure to make Beretta’s dinner extra fancy with a garnish.
I have a few favorite things to talk about today!
*My favorite sweatshirt that I wore all of the time last year (doesn’t fit this year) is still on Amazon HERE!
*The temperatures are dropping (or will be soonish) and my least favorite thing is having cold fingers during a run… I wore these gloves ALL winter long for my runs and they are the best. They are only $12 and you don’t have to take them off to use your phone. My running partner, Emilee, had them and raved about them so that’s who I learned about them from! I hope you love them too (ps on days in the low teens I would add hand warmers to my gloves but anything 20 degrees F and above and these gloves keep my hands perfectly warm)!
*Skye’s Bog Boots. I bought these boots for Skye last year and I was so happy to find that they fit her this year too. They are my favorite toddler boots ever.
*If you haven’t tried TJ’s apple cider donuts yet, you need to. They receive two thumbs up from every member of our family.
*Okay, just one more TJ’s item… The cinnamon broomsticks at TJ’s have made our house smell like cinnamon heaven. We have one in our main area and it smells so so good.
What is your favorite scent to have where you live?
What is a food that you’ve never had and it seems like everybody else in the world has?!
-I was texting Megan about my Ding Dongs yesterday and she told me she has never had one before!
When will you probably be starting to wear gloves for your runs this year?
