my [long] weekend in photos

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.

Untitled

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.

Untitled

we did a whole lot of nothing on sunday and ended the day at tijuana flats. needless to say, this boy loves that place.

Untitled

greg and i both had today off so we started the day at sea world!

Untitled

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?

my {thanksgiving} weekend in photos

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.

Untitled

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.

Untitled

the kids went to their first movie on friday! we saw the good dinosaur which was cute.

Untitled

we took a couple bike rides this weekend and went to the park a few times. we are hoping for cooler weather soon!

Untitled

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.

Untitled

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?

Friday I’m in Love

Happy Friday!

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.

t w o

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?

f o u r

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?

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.
Enjoy.

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.
Amen, sister.

Have a great weekend!

Cheap Date

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!

The Social Network

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.

Just Go With It

In case you don’t know this about me…
I love FRIENDS
…like *own every season with a special commemorative box* love.

Of course, my favorite FRIEND is Rachel. I’ve always loved Jennifer Aniston.

So, it’s no surprise that we went to see her new movie on opening night.

Well, it. was. amazing. You *have* to go see it.
Like…right now.

So cute and so funny! And such a great cast!

And I’m not just saying that because I like all of her movies,
even the ones that aren’t THAT good.

But for real. It’s really good.

 

So, go see it and let me know if you liked it as much as we did!
