8 WINDY miles @ 8:22 average with Emilee yesterday. The morning started out quite chaotic because we all slept in but somehow the kids all made it to school on time and I got in my run before Andrew had to leave to the dentist (<— he had been dreading this appointment for at least 2 months, he hates going to the dentist).
It was 37 degrees out but looked much much colder.
There were plenty of smiles throughout the morning…
And I also received plenty of ‘evil eye’ looks too…
After Andrew’s dentist appointment we went out for a lunch date together with Skye and Beck. Andrew has a crazy week ahead with school/work so we wanted to get out together heading into that.
After lunch we went on a drive for Skye to get in her nap which meant we actually got in some good talking together:).
It was warm enough to play outside!
And if the big kids are doing homework, Skye is sure to join them.
Of course we had more eggs for dinner ha and then I made these best butter biscuits and they were a hit (the burned veggies in the eggs were not a hit with the kids;).
I have some favorite things to share with you today!
*Glymps app that Beth shared with me. It is an awesome/easy/accurate way for Andrew to know exactly where I am when I am out running which helps me to feel more safe especially with trail running. You can set the timer for how long you want your location to be shared with the other person along with being able to send the recipient a message and your destination etc.
*A gratitude journal. Before I started blogging I was an avid journal writer and I’ve missed it a lot so I decided to start up again. I bought the ‘Grateful Heart’ journal from Lamare and I love all of the prompts that it gives me each day. It’s a really great way for me to unwind at the end of the day and
*A NEW GAME!! My kids love that fishing game (you know the one where it turns in a circle and you use your pole to try to catch them as they open and close their mouths?) so I thought this game would be really fun for them too… and it is!
*Not sure why it took me 34 years to combine Andes mint pieces with brownies but it was love at first bite when I made these last week.
*One can never have too many joggers (<— what I tell Andrew;). I tried out the Activeflex Slim-fit navy joggers and fell in love quickly… added bonus is they are only $17! I love that they have a higher thick waistband which makes them extra comfortable. I want to live in them and their soft fabric (they feel like I’m wearing pjs all day). There are tons of colors too!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
Do you keep a journal? Have you in the past?
Any apps for your phone that you have found lately that you love?
What do you wear most during the day… jeans, leggings, joggers, skirt, nice pants?
