10 miles @ 8:06 average with the girls. I definitely copied Maddie with these shoes and I love them. They aren’t as cushiony as the Cliftons, they are lighter and a big springier but they still have that “I’m getting older and needing Hokas to keep my lower legs/feet happy” feeling that I love.
When I am not in training for a race it is so hard for me to remember to do the extras.
I’m recommitting to stretching and foam rolling because I can’t run healthy without both.
Made another batch of this heaven.
Mel’s Creamy Gnocchi soup is amazing. Every recipe that I have ever tried from her blog is amazing.
Annual Christmas sugar cookies with the kids happened on Sunday but here is the picture:) The thicker the sugar cookie, the happier I am.
Along with some snuggling by the tree.
I finished up the night at a Favorite Things party.
I came home with this and cannot wait to try it.
Today’s post was written with Skye’s help.
For today’s questions… I want to hear about your unpopular opinions (most of mine are about food ha). I love reading people’s answers to these things.
Here are some of mine:
*Twix is overrated. I don’t want a dry cookie in my chocolate. I used to love them and I don’t know why.
*I like it getting dark early. It makes my kids want to snuggle me more in the evening. It also makes me feel more okay about my decision to be asleep by 9 pm;)
*I hate honey. I love honey nut cheerios but don’t give me any real honey, please;). Especially on a piece of bread. I just want butter.
*A lot of toppings or meat on pizza (unless it’s my sister’s homemade pizza). Give me the sauce and cheese (and maybe some fresh basil and tomatoes) and I am a happy camper.
*I HATE COLD ketchup on fries (I hope this is actually a popular opinion). I want packets from the restaurant that are room temperature, ketchup from the fridge is not for me.
*Parks and Rec—> I have tried to get into that show 5 times and it just hasn’t happened and I’m not sure it ever will.
*I think eating the same meal over and over and over again is the best (Andrew is who switched that up for me because before him, I REALLY did that often).
*Marvel Movies and Star Wars. Just not for me. I’ll watch them but the odds are high that I’ll probably fall asleep during them but that is true for most movies.
*Andrew does not like Serial (that podcast from 2014… I loved it). I don’t understand this at all but this is his unpopular opinion… definitely not mine.
*I don’t like Captain Crunch one bit. Maybe not as big of an unpopular opinion now but it sure was when I was a child growing up with my brothers.
*Andrew does not like syrup. He really doesn’t even like pancakes unless he has honey butter or really good jam to go on top. It’s strange. He also doesn’t like toppings on/in his ice cream so we can’t take him super seriously on these types of topics;).
*Andrew doesn’t like watching football on tv which is unpopular among many of his friends and brothers.
*This is more of a recent thing for me but I can’t stand Goldfish crackers. Maybe I was sick when I ate them pregnant or something but I would be okay if I never had to eat them again. Even the smell of them…
*Andrew does not like warm showers. It’s bizarre.
*Andrew LOVES the smell of cows. I do not.
*Andrew also just told me that he doesn’t like drinking water ha.
Give me your unpopular opinions!
