Well, since I’m on a race to see just how much I can get done before I pick up the boys in 45 minutes, this will be quick.
Dump style of course.
I’ll save my recent running and workouts for the next post if you don’t mind as I have a few running related things to discuss. I’ll try to keep that one on topic as I really can’t make any promises with this mess that’s about to follow. I’m a little scatter brained at the moment.
First, before I forget. If you’re local There is a special blood drive tomorrow afternoon for avid cyclist Mark Olsen who was diagnosed with Leukemia in May.
Here are the details.
Just click here to schedule an appointment if you’re interested. (If needed use code sportrx .)
I’ve never donated blood before, but am looking into scheduling an appointment for tomorrow.
So yeah, the preschool thing. First off, waking up at 5:30 am has been a bit of an adjustment the past two days. For ALL of us. I’m sure we’ll get used to it, right?
If you follow in instagram, you saw the first day picture. If you missed it, well here are a couple more for your viewing pleasure.
Stop it. NO, I did NOT cry. Thought about it, sucked it up though.
Their first day artwork.
Yes, those are self portraits. Don’t worry, I won’t tell them you asked.
Naturally we celebrated the first day of preschool by going to our favorite place.
And, already I was suckered into buying some yogurt drinks because some girl at school has one in her lunch. Really?
I will not disclose how much money was spent at Costco, but it was a large amount. And about 10 minutes after I finished unloading everything (talk about a workout by the way) I realized we’re have ONE roll of toilet paper left.
Lovely. Isn’t that how it always works though?
Last night I should have worked. I didn’t.
I looked outside and saw this.
Then I just spent extra snuggle time with the boys and actually read a little and went to bed at 10:00 pm. It was glorious.
So was this that I read from One Thousand GIfts.
Um, talk about hitting home.
There’s this whole Slow Down Challenge going on and I’m so in. Like, really IN.
Day two of preschool took a little extra bit of caffeine in the form of an iced Americano before 6:00 am.
As promised, I will not show pictures of school days every day, but here are a few that made me smile this morning.
I haven’t had protein powder since the whole STUFT Detox thing, so decided to experiment this afternoon. The only sweetener the Vega protein uses is stevia extract. I love that everything in their products is plant based.
Naturally I had to make a protein mocha with it.
It wasn’t too shabby. The protein definitely had a different taste to it, but it was good. I mixed half a packet with 1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a VIA packet of Starbucks instant coffee and a little extra cocoa powder for fun.
In other news, the new mama and toddler friendly roasted vegetable the past few days has been roasted cauliflower.
I forgot how good it is with marinara sauce. And if I put enough olive oil and parmesan cheese on it for the boys, they love it too.
And, well, I’m off to teach a couple classes.
I’ll be back to chat running later.
Totally random, but I’m loving Kelly Ripa’s new hair cut.
So cute, right?
Anyone else need to slow down?
