Monday, Monday. I’m ready for you! …well, I’m hoping I will be after this cup of coffee. Being that I’m usually a decaf gal, I should be buzzing around the house in no time, which is good because I have quite the ambitious to do list set out for today. It’s surprising that I have a long list because this weekend was quite productive (and fun!) with David’s mom and dad in town visiting.
The biggest check off the list? My new double ovens are installed!!
I have yet to wake up in the morning without smiling and saying hello to them. I think it may be love. After all, without the oven, I wouldn’t have stood a chance at creating these Garlic Parm Sweet Potato Fries.
We didn’t spend all weekend in the kitchen, though. We ventured out so Mema could buy Hailey her first pair of shoes.
They have little bear ballerinas on them and Hailey loves them! Well, she liked wearing them and chewing on them. I’m sure soon enough she’ll realize their real purpose.
Hailey looked so styling in her new kicks, that I didn’t want to be left behind, so my feet got a treat, too.
I didn’t realize how worn out my old shoes were until I put these on. These Brooks Ravennas make me feel like I could run forever… or wog a 10k, which is good because David and I are going to sign up for this one in Davidson on Hailey’s first birthday! I love how supportive these shoes are. I over pronate and the Ravennas help correct it.
But we weren’t all chores and exercise this weekend. There was food, too.
And a special treat- meal planning in bed Sunday morning.
Now, we’re to Monday. It’s 9:40am and I already have 3.5 miles under my belt, along with breakfast, a shower and the first load of laundry. Luckily the caffeine is kicking in now and hopefully I’ll buzz through emails, phone calls and a few more household chores before H wakes up. Wish me luck!
How often do you get new running shoes?
It’s been TWO YEARS since my last new pair of running shoes. That’s before I was even pregnant. Holy moly.
