Yesterday’s run started with a long sleeve shirt?! My body was confused by what was happening outside ha, but after a few miles, I warmed up again and I was back to a tank.
Nine miles @ 8:35 average with Emilee and Skye was my post-run photographer.
Another school day!
I ate take-out alone in my car while listening to a podcast, and that felt very nice.
Beck had a dr appointment, and Skye came with us after preschool.
And then we got ready to celebrate Brooke with my family!
Brooke wanted spaghetti, so we did that with sauteed zucchini/squash, ground turkey, watermelon, french bread, and salads.
I was going for a four-layer cake, and it definitely didn’t happen…
Luckily, she was very happy with the two-layer cake instead;).
Let’s get going on my favorite things this week!
*Another posture helper that I am loving. One of my running friends works for Chirp, and after hearing her talk about how awesome it is, I finally got one and wished I had it sooner. It is used to roll away pain and stretch out after a workout (or at night). It’s designed to fit between your shoulder blades which is awesome (it also has a spinal canal, so it doesn’t hurt your spine as you roll). I love that it is harder than a foam roller which helps to stretch/roll it deeper. It feels so good after holding babies all day and sitting at the computer (still working on my posture!!).

*Cynthia told me about this ceramic one-egg frying pan, which is making many appearances in our kitchen. The egg doesn’t stick in the slightest, and it makes the perfect-sized egg to fit on a bagel for an egg sandwich.
*I am pretty sure I have eaten this combo every single day of the week. Basil leaves, tomatoes, mozzarella, salt & balsamic glaze. I will never get sick of this.
*I’m really talking about food a lot lately ha—> Don’t mind the fact that it melted a little bit but for my Scotchmallow fans… See’s Candies offer it in BAR FORM NOW, and it is next-level delicious.
*Trader Joe’s sells these cooler bags at the front of the store and you might need one. I usually have a stop or two after I go to TJs, and having this bag to keep my food cold is the best. I unload it once I get home and put it back in my car so I don’t forget it for the next time. I should have put my above Scotchmallow in it.
*Just in case you need a gift for anyone around nine years old anytime soon, Brooke told me that her favorite gift was this smoothie set. My kids love all Melissa & Doug food sets, and I love them too.
Have any fun plans for the weekend??
