After a few weeks of running in the 70s, my Monday run felt like heaven because it was 57 degrees out. I met my sister for the run so between keeping up with her and the cooler temperatures, I was a bit faster than normal—> 6 miles @ 8:57 average.
After my run I did 3 x 12 squats with what felt like two medicine balls and I was pretty proud about that.
After Brooke went to school I picked up one of my nephews and we went to the park!
I’m thankful for the few hours each week that we are getting of one-on-one time (Brooke had hers after school while Skye napped!) before the baby comes. These Highlights books take me way back… they are Skye’s favorite right now.
For dinner we made Mindy’s homemade tomato soup. Tomatoes are still a big deal to me right now and when I saw her soup, I knew I had to have it. I’ll be making this again and again!
This french bread happened too and it was so good and easy to make too.
I have a few tangents for today!
*Skye is all about attacking me with the most slobbery kisses ever. It makes her giggle so hard.
*Last week Jen gave me the tip to try mixing a laughing cow wedge into my scrambled eggs and WOW. The flavor, the creaminess… it makes scrambled eggs even better! Try it!
*This was my lunch yesterday with a laughing cow/scrambled eggs breakfast sandwich, leftover veggies and a brownie because it was the perfect addition to the meal.
*Brooke asked Andrew to help her to learn how to make an apple pie on Sunday.
They used this recipe and my mom, sister and dad all said it was the best apple pie they have ever had. Get ready for Brooke’s bakery to open up in the next little while.
*Feel good short clips like this one make me so happy…
*Have you seen what elites will be racing the London Marathon in early October?! I am already counting down the days to watch this race… it is going to be so good.
