greg worked on friday night so the kiddos and i held down the house. heather and i got up saturday morning to run and the weather was absolutely horrible. it was cold and so windy so our 8 miles turned into 6 and i was perfectly fine with that decision.
afterwards, we headed to o2b kids to celebrate kyler’s birthday, super hero style!
crosby says “cheeeeeese”!
happy birthday kyler girl!
we debated having a fire on saturday night but figured it was too cold for that and we wouldn’t enjoy it, so we watched the martian instead on our warm, comfy couch. it was really good!
kenley and i did a little craft together this morning after i saw this pin on pinterest. we modified it a little and used washi tape instead of ribbon, so now she has festive artwork in her bedroom!
i headed to panera to get some work done when the kids went down for their nap and ended up meeting a friend for a chat and a quick trip to target. we ended the day with a very quick trip to the y and a broncos victory!
we had a fun, chilly weekend. how was yours?
crosby is reluctant to do the slide by himself, but he was happy to go with kenley!
greg and i finally watched jurassic world on friday night. it was so good!
saturday morning came early and we knocked out 12 miles, which is my longest training run to date. if i’m running anything close to 13.1 miles, i want to be getting a medal for it, however, heather suggested 12 and i agreed. it was hard and i moaned and groaned the rest of the day.
we headed down disney to help celebrate lyla’s birthday and hang out with some friends. these three were brave enough to get in the water and i was happy to take pictures.
we had so much fun playing, swimming, eating, and chatting. can you tell it was way past nap time for our kids? they fell asleep as soon as we got in the car.
we did a whole lot of nothing on sunday and ended the day at tijuana flats. needless to say, this boy loves that place.
greg and i both had today off so we started the day at sea world!
we rode two roller coasters and enjoyed a snack before heading to lunch and to the mall. we had such a fun day together!
we really enjoyed having an extra day this weekend. how was your weekend?
we played at daddy’s work on wednesday night while he was working to kick off our long weekend. the ice slide may be my favorite thing ever.
thanksgiving day was full of playing, cooking, and eating. daddy fried the turkey and i made the sides, including homemade mashed potatoes and stuffing. crosby didn’t have one bite of thanksgiving dinner and greg and i ate leftovers all weekend.
the kids went to their first movie on friday! we saw the good dinosaur which was cute.
we took a couple bike rides this weekend and went to the park a few times. we are hoping for cooler weather soon!
saturday night, i headed over to cocoa with some other moms to stay the night before the race this morning. we hit up the expo and carb loaded before heading to the hotel for the night.
4:15am came very early, but it turned out to be my day. i had an amazing race and was beyond thrilled with my 2:14:09 finishing time. i will write up a full race recap this week because i definitely want to remember this one.
we decorated the house this weekend, so we are ready for christmas! wyatt and kennedy came to play this afternoon, so we had to do a photo in front of the tree!
we had a great thanksgiving and long weekend, but it sure went by quickly. how was your holiday weekend?

I can’t even tell you the last time I’ve read a book…for fun…and I just finished Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving–and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity. I highly recommend this book if you’re at all interested in running. It’s very informative and easy to read. I also learned this week they have another book out too – Train Like a Mother – which is on my list to read next.

I stumbled upon this article this week and it is very thought provoking.
How To Ruin Your Life (Without Even Noticing You Are)
Have a read for yourself.
t h r e e
This article, on the other hand, is not as thought provoking. It’s just true. Give me all the coffee and ALL the wine.
Why Do Moms Always Talk About Coffee and Wine?

This one is two-fold. Greg and I have been catching up on the Hunger Games movies. We watched Hunger Games last week and this week we watched Catching Fire. We are planning to watch Mockingjay (Part I) tonight! The movies have been really good (even Greg likes them) and it’s been so nice to just sit on the couch with each other and watch a movie. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since we’ve done that. No phones, no technology, no kids, just us. It’s been just what I’ve needed.
Your turn! What are you loving this week?
Don’t forget to check out what these ladies are loving too!

Mean Girls turned 10 years old this week? Please explain how that’s possible.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this movie to this day. It’s so fetch.

Some days we just need a little reminder that we really are good mothers.

I’ve recently fallen in love with Amy Poehler thanks to my Parks & Rec marathons during maternity leave.
Now I love her a little bit more.
Have a great weekend!
It was double date night with Melissa & Ben tonight,
and somehow we pulled off one of the cheapest date nights ever!
Dinner: Chili’s $25 gift card + tip
Treats for the movie: $7 at Target
Treats at the movie: Popcorn with Regal gift card
Movie tickets: $9 for 2 tickets on Living Social
We saw The Adjustment Bureau (obviously) and it was good!
Not great, not terrible, but good.
It was a fun and cheap night!
After watching the Oscars, we figured it was finally time to see
The Social Network.
That’s what we’re up to tonight,
after a rough afternoon of watching the Bethenny Getting Married
marathon on Bravo. 🙂
Sorry Ben for watching your Valentine’s Day present before you.
