Emilee and I were talking about this yesterday on the run…
Yes, our running goals are important, but sometimes we use running as our excuse to chat with each other and our friends for an hour or two in the mornings with zero interruptions;).
9 miles @ 8:27 average.
We started a new tradition in our family. Each year at about this time (right between Knox’s and Brooke’s birthdays), we are throwing them a combined friend birthday party with their classes from school. The kids were very thrilled with this plan!
So the day was filled with getting everything up and ready.
We stopped for pad thai while we were out.
We were very thankful to have my mom, in-laws, sister, brother-in-law, and nieces there to help.
I was telling my neighbor about the party a week ago and how I was about to call and rent some jump houses, and then she said, “Oh, we have a few in storage; just take ours.” It was so nice of them!!
And now I need to sleep for 48 hours straight;)
Just a few Friday Favorites today!
*My kids pretty much give me the mother of the year award when I have pumpkin-shaped waffles for them in the morning. The easiest little tool to make my kids think I am cool this time of year:)
*Andrew always comes home from Costco with at least one new thing for us to try out, and I loved what he got this last time. The tiniest bit goes a long way, and it just takes pancakes/waffles/french toast to the next level!
*This book is loved by our kids and me. There are SO many flaps on each page with more and more information on our bodies. I love that the kids will bring up different things they learn from this book throughout the day. I just ordered the Usborne Look Inside Our World, too because we love this book so much (plus it has 2,200 5 star reviews).
*JOGGER SEASON IS HERE, and these ones just happen to be my favorites.
PS Liquid IV is doing a big sale until Monday, and you can save 30% on all orders with free shipping. Pina Colada is my favorite! Code: HUNGRYRUNNERGIRL
