Hello lovelies! I couldn’t be happier it was Friday this week! I planned to write this last night but sleepiness got the best of me and I ended up falling asleep in Jack’s room, waking up at 1 AM, and only then remembering that I had stripped the bed. Boo for having to make your bed at 1 AM ;( So it is a little late to the party this morning!
So here are my five things this week:
Little Miss Bowe got sick this week. Thankfully she is feeling better because there is nothing worse than being sick in the summer! Back to the pool today we go!
2.) POOL TOYS
We have hit the pool almost everyday and are becoming connoisseurs of pool toys. This is our latest purchase. We have met a couple other families at the pool and one of them had this. I am hoping it will be just as exciting when it is ours and not someone else’s!
Baby Jack gave us his first laugh this week but we have had a harder time getting him to repeat it. Baby laughs are the best thing in the world. Hopefully, I can get a video of it because I still go back and watch Bowe’s first laugh.
I have made this salad several times now and each time it is as good as I remember. It is easy to make and tastes delicious. Here is the recipe! It is a great way to use up your salad greens. I have changed up the recipe and used arugula and spinach in addition to lettuce and skipped the beans Using leftover grilled corn is a great way to use up last night’s dinner.
I went for a solo run (sans stroller) this week and I shaved two minutes of my mile time. Now I am SLOW with the stroller but I didn’t realize that running without it and the kids would make that much of a difference. Nevertheless, I am always happy to be able to have the option to run with them because otherwise I couldn’t go as much. I wrote a bit more about how I am fitting in exercise everyday in this post 5 Tips for Fitting in Exercise With Kids. Just a few ideas for what has worked for us!
