Trying to get a selfie in with Andrew’s creepy guy in front of our house:
Surprisingly, running is feeling easier this week than it has in a while. I’m not sure why but I’m just going to go with it.
6 miles @ 9:11 average and I even ran up some small hills in my area that I haven’t run up in months.
To go along with feeling better running… food is also starting to taste better than it has in a while. I woke up thinking about Thai food and couldn’t get it out of my mind until I ate it for lunch. Andrew is more than happy to go with me to get my cravings in… but I’m sure he wishes I craved in-n-out;)
Skye is all about the massaman curry and fortune cookies.
You know my sister has had a VERY productive day on her home renovations when she is wearing these pants;) She just finished her range hood so we went over to see it. Her kitchen is almost complete and then she will show you the before and after.
Brooke is off to spend the weekend with her dad here in Utah this weekend so I took her on a date before she leaves today and she requested two activities..
For dinner I was really feeling like some soup so I made this Creamy Roasted Cauliflower Chowder. It is too good.
It’s a recipe that the kids love too (especially if we have crescent rolls to dip them into:)
We finished off the night with a walk and a surprise visit from my parents and then Andrew came back home after another training once the kids were asleep and we watched our 8,302nd episode of the office together (we will never get sick of that show).
I have just a few favorite things to share today:
*I’m going on 8 years of being a Brooks running shoes purist (aka the only shoes I will wear to run in). I have a deep love for their running shoes and I cannot wait to try out the Levitate 4. I’ve used each version of the Levitate and loved them for the spring they give each step… they energize me when I’m feeling flat. I’ll give a full review of them as soon as I get about 100 miles on them!
*My brother sent this to our family and you can enter in your name and see how popular your name was at the time! You can do it here.
*Music that I cannot stop listening to this week—> Sara Baraeilles- Songs from Little Voice!
*Cheesy Netflix love story movie (that Andrew loved too and we both laughed multiples times throughout the movie): Love, Guaranteed.
*(An old photo) Whenever I wear THIS SWEATSHIRT I always get a lot of questions about it so I thought I would include it in a Friday favorite. I’ve had it for a few years now (in three colors) and wear them all of the time (bonus, they work for pregnancy too). They are so thick and warm, LONG and just as cozy as it gets.
*(Another old photo:) but now that it’s getting cooler, we are all transitioning over to leggings for our running (ehhhh rest of the day for me too:) and these are awesome. They don’t move when you are running, they have pockets on both legs, they come in about 20 different colors and they wash excellent (and seem like they should be way more than $26).
You can get them HERE!
Tell me one thing you are looking forward to this weekend?
Is your name a popular name, somewhere in between or not very popular?
What were the last pair of running shoes you wore?
Thai food… do you like it and if yes, what’s your favorite dish?
