Silentish Saturday!

And just like that, Christmas is over… this last month has flown by!

My day started off with a few miles in 17 degree weather before Andrew went to work.

Once Skye woke up I had her open one present from Santa (we did presents from me and Andrew with Brooke and Knox and then Santa gifts yesterday) and then waited to do the rest for when Andrew was home.

We spent the day at my sister’s house.

Her couches are the best to snuggle on.

Lots of facial expressions yesterday.

Skye kept ‘calling’ Brooke and Knox on her new phone.

STEAK for dinner… it was so good.

Food coma.

And homemade oreos for dessert.  We also subbed in funfetti cake mix into the oreo recipe for the other batch to try another variation.  They were delicious.

Brooke comes home today and I cannot wait to see her!

How in the world did you convince Skye to WAIT to open her presents from Santa??? That must have been difficult! Sounds like you had a nice day. Happy Boxing Day!

I was shocked she agreed to it ha… but she loves going to my sister’s house (they spoil her!!) so it was a win-win for her! Have a great day Jenny!

Taking a day off from the exercise bike (my legs are SORE, but in the good way) and doing some yoga/Pilates! Other than that, we are just taking it easy…the time after Christmas always feels a little weird, but pretty relaxing, too. Maybe I’ll have to bake again…so excited for you to have Brooke back!

I listened to you on the Suite Run podcast yesterday and I dreamed last night I was out running the Utah trails!! I guess it really sunk into my subconscious…or I miss traveling and running…or both!! Might have to book a trip to Utah when it’s safe again!

I hope your dream comes true and I’ll join you on the utah trails! Enjoy the baking and resting… I’m loving this slow time of year! Have a beautiful day, Kristin!

Any tips on getting back into running and exercise?
I used to do so much running and yoga and loved it! (and felt so much better for it!)
Major lack of motivation and feeling like I “can’t do it” “I’m too unfit to start” are definite barriers!

I’m going to write a post about this soon! YOU CAN DO IT ABBI! We all start somewhere and so many of us feel that same way, you aren’t alone. We can do this and all it takes is trying for a few minutes and then adding upon that over the weeks and months. I know you can do this and I’ll be your biggest cheerleader!

Merry belated Christmas! 😊🎄 Do you have a face mask you’d recommend like the one in your picture? Runs are getting to be in the teens here too so looking for something similar. Thanks! 😊

Hey April! You need a top like the one I have on! The one I am wearing isn’t sold anymore but I have this one too and it’s amazing… https://athleta.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=631817012&vid=1&tid=atpl000007&kwid=1&ap=7&gclid=CjwKCAiA25v_BRBNEiwAZb4-Zf3J6sTosdk2ec5el7D6oP1rWzT9HUqmDnc2tCHo5JeQiLFslSTdvhoC2yIQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#pdp-page-content

Good luck and keep me updated on how you are doing!

I definitely need one like it! Thank you!

What was Skye thinking about in that picture with your niece? It is so funny and begs to be captioned.

Reply

Bahaha! She is probably wondering why in the world I put mashed potatoes on her plate… she does not hold back what she is thinking or feeling with her expressions! Have a fabulous day Belle!

I ended up ordering a balaclava too! 😂

Your babies are so adorable! Thank you for sharing them with us! Happy December 26! Love that you run in 17 degrees. Its 24 here and I am NOT gonna run, 30’s yes, less than that, HECK no!

Reply

Thank you so much Melva and I hope you are having a great day so far! You are smart… running in the teens hurts ha. I did the treadmill today because it was too 🥶!

Hi Janae! Merry Christmas!! Looks like you had a wonderful time and I hope the good times continue through the weekend! Today I’m dropping off presents for some friends and watching a Christmas movie with my fiance (not sure which one, he wants Die Hard and I want a nightmare before christmas).

Reply

Hey Amy! Merry Christmas to you! Andrew watched Die Hard the other night! I hope you win the movie debate😉 Enjoy friend!

Did Beck suddenly grow and get all these amazing expressions?! I think Skye is teaching his all sorts of things ;)

Your day sounds nice and cozy with family. I am so glad Brooke comes home-it will be so fun having her back.

Today we had some sun but as soon as we got on our bikes, it started to lightly snow! Luckily we took the bikes with spiked tires but it was fine. It’s a holiday over here so lots of families were out walking (but there is nothing open today, just gas stations!)and enjoying fresh air.

Enjoy your weekend!

Reply

Hahah YES, Beck is definitely learning these facial expressions from Skye! Your bike ride sounds like it was so much fun, I want to ride bikes while the snow is lightly falling. Sounds like the perfect day. Keep enjoying and thank you Kelly!

3 things I did–walked twice, read a book, ate cookies and leftover chocolate cake and watched my son watch NBA games all day. I guess that’s 4!
Merry Christmas and glad Brooks is coming home!
Btw, I ran today in 23 degree weather–may I ask here you bought that hat you had on in the first picture. I have something similar but it’s loose compared to yours.

Reply

Merry Christmas, Janae! You have such a beautiful family.
Things from today:
– Playing with all the toys my boys got yesterday!
– Making cocoa with frothed milk using my new, awesome milk frother
-Having delicious leftovers for supper and snuggling. My husband is a fantastic cook.

Merry Christmas!!! Could you tell us where your face mask is from that’s covering your head & mouth?
Thanks!

Hey Ashley! It’s actually part of my long sleeve shirt that I was wearing. It is really old and I can’t find it online anymore but I also have this one which is very similar. I hope you are having a great day!
