Winter Happenings

on December 17, 2018

Well, hello! I am clearly crushing it at this blogging thing (ha!). It seems like I blink and two weeks has gone by (or more?!).

Life just seems to be flying by right now. Between working on our race, finishing up the last couple of weeks of the class I am teaching, homeschooling Brooke, running a household and training….I just need a nap.

On the workout side of things, I have been really good at getting in my 30 miles a week for the last 3 weeks. I even got 10 miles in last Wednesday (6 of them outside in a blizzard). My goal of 30 miles in the M-F work week even came to fruition last week. It was pretty nice to play on my bikes and skis this weekend 🙂

I did a thing and signed up for the Belgian Waffle Ride (since I will be there and have a babysitter). It is 136 miles and 12,000 feet of climbing. What did I get myself into??!! It is May 5th, so let the training begin!

How about some random pictures from the last couple of weeks??

Spotted this little Ermine in our window well while I was running on the treadmill. Cutest little thing ever! I put a piece of 2×6 wood at a slant so he could make his way out.

Elf on the Shelf has been doing her thing.

There has been a good amount of outdoor play, but also so quality princess/makeover time. Clearly Brooke has a lot of work to do…

Saw the most gorgeous sunset on the way home one night….


Also saw these mamas and babies…

Went to the forest and cut down a Christmas tree…before Church, in 8 degrees. I needed more clothes.

I wear leg warmers to run in all the time and get teased for it! Finally, they are becoming a THING. Best day of my life.

Already have as many ski days in as all last year. So thankful for the killer snow this year!

In race news….we sold out in a week. Like well over 1000 people. We cant wait. It’s going to be awesome!

Side note: Ken and I almost ended up with frostbite creating this in 5 degrees.

The Pottery Barn bed saga continued….Ordered in March, 3 replacements later and finally she has a bed that is not cracked. It only meant that we had to drive the guys who assembled it back and forth 7 miles to their truck in a blizzard because they were afraid they would get stuck. Then, they forgot their tools so I had to go to town to ship them back the next day. Never ordering from them again!

When your kid asks to play with your phone, but you refuse to put games on said phone….little paparazzi….

Working on her selfie game. Hmmmmm Keep working….

Current road conditions…

Ken and I went on a fat biking date yesterday. He told me it was going to be a relaxed date ride. We climbed over 1000 feet in our 11.8 mile round trip. Ha. Thanks, Honey.

Went out with a girlfriend for dinner tonight. Third time in the 9 years I have been married. Clearly, I enjoy staying home with my family. BUT it was nice to have a focused adult conversation.

And now, I must stop procrastinating and return to grading! Getting pretty excited for some Christmas festivities over here!!!
