Welcome to another Week in Review, hosted by my friend Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets. I first fell in love with Meghan because of her cat Oscar.
But then as I got to know Meghan, I realized that she’s not too bad herself. I’m not usually pulled toward the whole food blogger thing, but she inserts enough inappropriate material through her posts to keep me interested. Plus, the food she makes is dope, and easy to follow (even for those of us in toast burners anonymous). But, before you leave here and ditch me for a food blogger, here’s this week’s Week in Review:
It worked out that I had my side of the family’s Thanksgiving dinner on the Tuesday night rather than the actual weekend. Andrew had to work, but Jake brought his friend and roommate Isaiah, and my mom and dad were able to join us as well! As you can see, taking self-timed photographs is not my gift. Freddy was missing from this one…
So we squeezed Freddy (and the reflection of the sun on his face) into this one:
Just before the weather started to turn, I took Katie and Callum to the Apple Barn after school one day. Nobody was there, and it was SO MUCH FUN.
Once it got stormy, we stayed inside and kept cozy. Brandy has supernatural amounts of patience with Callum. She lets him tug on her whiskers, kiss her eyeballs and drive his cars and trains along her back.
I’m putting this picture in here because it gives me all the big feels. Callum pushes our heads together and tells us to kiss and hug. And when we’re snuggling, he just stares up at us and smiles from his guts. One night I had climbed onto the futon with Andrew to cuddle and I guess Callum started snapping pictures of us with my phone and this is one of them:
Lora and I used to race together quite often but in the last few years, we both trimmed down the number of races we do. Lora focuses on a trail race around Cultus Lake held every October. It just so happens that the 10K CARES run landed on the same day as her trail race, so we had fun “getting ready” together on Saturday morning. We sent pictures of ourselves (not showing those ones lol) and texted each other all sorts of… inspirational messages.
I think we decided that we need to run a race together one day soon. The last race we ran together was the Fort Langley Half in July 2011 where we finished a couple minutes apart. That was over FIVE YEARS AGO! This has to change.
The race went really well on Saturday! I am posting a recap tomorrow.
The change in weather has brought in a few viruses, so we’re just trying to get lots of sleep. I’m still cooking and eating veggies like a champ and chasing them all down with gallons of water. I’ve honestly never felt better. Keeping up with my 100 push-ups has helped my core so much too. It’s amazing how the little things like this can make such an impact on our lives!
Do you like racing with friends or would you rather race on your own?
Americans—do you guys have big plans for Thanksgiving? Which weekend in November is it? Why do we have two different Thanksgivings?
