I wanted to be home when Skye woke up for her birthday, so I jumped on the Peloton. It hurt, like usual—a lot.
She wanted to get right into the hot tub and dared these two to do this:
We opened gifts.
Along with a build-a-bear excursion.
And she wanted to ski.
Somehow she also requested Knox’s favorite restaurant for dinner;) She was so happy that we had both big kids and that Andrew didn’t have work on her birthday.
Let’s get talking about some favorites:
*My Merry Christmas to Me gift:). I’ve been eyeing these boots for a long time and finally grabbed them. They are much more comfortable than I imagined and a boot that will last (and be in style) for a long time. PS they are also waterproof.
*This bread from Costco. I had low expectations but grabbed it for lazy nights. Ummmm, this bread is unreal. Please get it. The bread is vacuum packed, so it has a long shelf life, and it is now something I will buy every time I am at Costco.
*I remembered another great gift idea for kids–> this laser gun set. My brother gave us this for Christmas one year, and it is always brought out when friends come over, and it is something Andrew and I love to play with them too.
*The only sleep mask I can use. I need one every night of my life; this one is padded and concave for your eyes. Andrew packs an emergency one when we travel just in case I forget mine;)
*This podcast episode with Molly Seidel. She is the best at sharing the lows and the highs of running and life. I respect her so much, and I love that she races even when she isn’t at her fittest and doesn’t care about being last in the pro field. We don’t have to be at our best to race. We still get to have fun and learn something new at every race.
*My first bunny tail. Marshmallows, caramel, white chocolate, dark chocolate, and coconut. I don’t know how I went this long through life without this.
