My sister is having a baby today! We are sitting in the waiting room as I type this, waiting for her arrival!
Yesterday Ashley started having contractions very regularly. We met her at the hospital and walked the hospital for awhile.
(Isn’t she the most gorgeous pregnant momma you’ve ever seen.) She was checked again and sent home for awhile.
After a jacuzzi bath her water finally broke and she was on her way. After hours of labor she still looks incredible.
I don’t know what I would call this week… A funk? I’ve been barely running, primarily doing yoga, eating like shit and cranky…
And today, my co-workers got me a great card and a box of wine for Social Worker Appreciation Month. And I got an email from a different co-worker that meant a lot to me! THEN, when I got home from work I got ANOTHER super sweet thank you card from the girls’ nanny with gift cards for a date night, for making her feel like family (I just love that girl).
What a whirlwind of a week and this weekend was a great end to it.
Then we took the girlies out for Spot On (their fav) and stopped off at Home Depot (their least fav). Did I mention I got flowers on Thursday? They look amazing today.
Since the time change, my snooze button & I have entered into very serious relationship…
That damn snooze button promises me 8 more minutes of sleeping, over and over and over……… Does it make me feel more rested? No. Do I get my running in? No. Then, like tonight, I have to make those miles up, I have a marathon to train for. I’m 10 weeks out from the marathon. Ten weeks. So I’m sorry Snooze Button, I’m breaking up with you.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine egg, butter, and syrup, and cake mix with and electric mixer on low speed until thoroughly mixed. Add m&m’s. Drop rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
Both Bill and the girlies loved them!!!
If you have never grilled lettuce, you are missing out!
You take a head of romaine lettuce and cut it in half lengthwise. Lay it face up on the grill, drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil (then I sprinkle with Johnny’s salt). Grill each side for 2 or 3 minutes. It’s sooo simple, yet sooo good.
