Our Thanksgiving celebration hit all of the key points—>  turkey, pie, a movie and some good ol’ fashioned quality time together.  Brooke will get home Friday morning and I’m already looking forward to decorating the house for Christmas with her! We started off the evening with Kneaders and I went with the turkey/avocado/bacon salad with focaccia bread.  I probably should have attempted to make a turkey at home or something like that for our celebration but when you are tapering […]

When we got out of our cars this morning we both looked at each other and said, ‘I’m grumpy’…. and then by the end of the 4.25 miles together we were laughing and in WAY better moods.   Brooke read about Rumpelstiltskin with grandpa while they both ate frosted mini wheats.   Just the usual stretching routine—>  I try to stretch and Brooke tries to make it so I can’t stretch:) We are celebrating Thanksgiving today so we went to […]

Before we get to the important Thanksgiving quiz that I am sure you are on the edge of your seat waiting for…  let’s review last night. Ms. Brooke fell asleep on me while I was rubbing her back and I put her to bed at my mom’s house for a few hours.   I picked up some of these because somebody told me they are amazing.  I haven’t tried them yet but I was too interested to not buy them. […]

It is the holiday season so that means a lot of us are cooking and baking up a storm.  I don’t have a ton of recipes that I make (pretty sure I eat my sweet potato/chicken/avocado combination every day of my life) but I do have a few things that my family/friends request for me to make during this time of year! I thought I would put them all in one place just in case you are looking for something […]

The most important event of the day:  a Cougar Tail.  A 10-inch maple bar.  Make the trip to Utah just to try one of these.   Let’s rewind to the start of the day: I slept in Saturday morning so that meant one thing…  my long run was on the treadmill and this is me reenacting how tired I was at the end. Photo credit- Brooke Jacobs.   Somehow I wasn’t bored for the 14 miles… my brain was all […]

Hey. Have an awesome Saturday.

For my Friday run I decided to hit up a pretty awesome 3 mile loop—> the same loop that I used to do with my sister ALL of the time when I was a teenager.  It wasn’t as fun of a loop without her but it still had a lot of great memories and the snowy mountain backdrop was pretty great too. It was crazy windy out so I made sure to wear a bunch of layers.  Kept it nice […]
