This was a reallllly good way to start off my week.
I’m a way more fun mom when we are outside. When I’m outside I feel like I can easily let go of to-do lists, be present, be silly and just relax… Now to learn how to do that better when we are inside:)
I think I’ve created children that are addicted to being outside too:
Before I ran with Brooke I went with Emilee and we did 9 miles @ 8:19 pace. Sometimes I jump on and off the curb when I am running for a bit to vary things up and to get different muscles to wake up and work. Variation is an important part of avoiding overuse injuries—> I talk more about this here!
This girl loves having her nails painted but it isn’t easy for her to stay still afterwards to let them dry.
This. I stopped and stared at this sign for a minute because it seemed too good to be true.
The amount of salt and garlic I put into guacamole is unreasonable but it just makes it taste so so good (I used mini tacos that I cooked in the air fryer as my chips which made the guac taste even better:)
And for dinner our neighbors invited us over for the best burger I’ve ever had.
I have some tangents to share today!
*Beretta is so thrilled to have another little one to feed her from the high chair. She is not interested in what Beck is eating these days but she is just preparing herself for when he does start having more food to give to her.
*Brooke went over to sit on my mom’s lap and I had to laugh because I don’t think it will be long before they are the same size:).
*My kids hit the jackpot with their cousins.
*I don’t like Skor bars/toffee bits etc. I’ve tried for so long to just power through toffee items or desserts that have a bit of toffee in them and tell myself it is good but I’m finally just letting go of trying to like it from here on out.
*My cousin was in town (remember how she used to be on the blog all of the time?!) and her little guy! I need her to move back to Utah again.
*You guys convinced me yesterday, I’m going to chop my hair! My appointment is on the 21st, I cannot wait.
Leslie’s comment is what 1000% sold me on the idea;)
*Remember how I told you last week that my brother loves warm soda? I found out why! He lived in El Salvador for two years (he was on a mission for our church) and he was in an area and time that it wasn’t safe to drink the water while they were out all day. They relied on soda throughout the day and didn’t have a way to keep it cold while they were out… so that is what got him going on the warm soda thing!
*Megan asked this on her IG and I had to ask you here too! I am #6 and anything cooked more than that is considered burnt in my opinion!
What # of toast are you? What are your favorite toast toppings?
Toffee—> love it or leave it?
Tell me a way that you vary up your running!!
If your store was selling avocados for .20… how many would you have bought of them?
