Day 5: day in the life

Today’s eats were pretty good, and ended with ice cream. Let me say the day was insane, followed by ice cream with friends. A success I would say? haha. I don’t usually eat ice cream, but considering I kept my cool all day and still ate well up until then, I’m good with that. I thought instead of just food, I would show the schedule….It doesn’t look like it, but every minutes

7am: Breakfast- eggs, peppers, and bacon

8am: grocery store for lots of andrew goodies (more on that tomorrow….)

8:30: went to visit Carrie (The NICU babies past foster mom. he is now with his adoptive mom)

10am: T25 total body workout

11am: Protein coffee on the run. plus pepperoni slices. My dad had oral surgery. So I was running from my parents house to walgreens and mcdonalds for a milk shake

Question for you:

What is one (or two) things keeping you busy these days?

Mr Flower’s visit

In May, Mr Flowers and I started talking. (and by talking I mean facebook messages and texts) Fast forward to July, where phone calls began, and he was going to come and visit!  (man was I nervous!) But things fell through, when his uncle passed away the night before his visit.

We rescheduled for August, and again. ….Nervous. haha

Mr Flowers arrived the day after my hornet stings…..

~Friday~

Mr Flowers (or T that I call him on the good o’ blog) brought his twin 4 year old girls with him. We were treating the first get together like friends. We met at the park by my house. I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (I was shaking the entire time I was making the sandwiches haha)

At the park, I was greeted with a hug, and shy hellos from the girls. Then the kids took off, and T and I headed to the picnic tables. For about 5 minutes, I could tell we were both a little nervous. But then we got to talking, just like we have the past 3 months, and it was like we had been friends forever

After running around, Andrew and I took them to Ted Drewes! You can’t come to St Louis, and not get custard!

We ate on the  patio, and then the three kiddos colored and decorated paper, and before we knew it, it was 9pm and way past everyone’s bed time.  With a hug goodbye, they were off to their hotel

~Saturday morning~

I woke up bright and early, to a text from T.  They would be ready to go to the zoo in 15 minutes, whoops. Better go get Andrew up! haha.

While we were getting ready, T and the girls ran to the gas station to get drinks and snacks. I was impressed!

The zoo was an adventure, but the kids loved it! I was glad to show them a great part of the city.

(his girls with Andrew)

Then it was time for pizza and little relaxing.  Our mutual friend, Chrissy, had a birthday party for her son, and we all went to celebrate.

At the party, it never felt forced or uncomfortable with T and his girls. It seemed natural. Of course the other moms/friends were there asking who he was. haha. They even commented that it didn’t seem like our “first meeting”. I have to agree.

The only bad news: we didn’t take one picture together. And I didn’t take ONE PICTURE! WHO AM I!??!!? haha

Who knows what the weeks/months/years will bring, but I know, I can’t wait to find out.

 

The next visit….September 3rd 🙂

Question for you:

Would you call this talking, dating, or exclusive?

haha just kidding. I think my mom will appreciate that question

Last Day!

Last Day of First grade that is. How crazy is that?!?!?!

Ok. Let’s move on 😦

Today, is just random. But days like today make life exciting and fun.

First, I found some protein powder at Sam’s. FOUR LBS OF IT!!!!

Strength training workout of the day: Dumbbell Tricep Extensions (demo from sparkpeople.com)

Andrew had his last day of first grade.

The first second graders met at Ted Drews for a nice treat. The kids were everywhere!

I am going to start another project. Thanks pinterest! This one should only take an hour or so (more to come on that)

And look what I found on my way to bed!

Well, I hope you had a great Thursday.

Question for you:

Do you use protein powder?

What is your favorite way to use protein powder?

-I put it in with my green monster shakes. YUM!

Today’s winner: Dinner

A lot of my blog friends, have a What I Ate Wednesday. Well I picked Thursday instead haha 😉

Breakfast: Oatmeal Pancake w/ bananas, PB, and agave nectar on top

Snack: Cucumbers, carrots, hummus, and grapes

Snack #2: Peanut butter filled pretzels (while watching Ellen and reading blogs. I’m a muli-tasker, what can I say? haha)

(notice dirty sock and orange dart? Neither our mine. Neither of them did I pick up haha)

Snack #3: Colby cheese and apple slices (obviously I ate lunch in 3 parts today haha)

Dinner: The winner of the evening Barbeque!!!! This was our first time grilling since last summer!! (the horror!)

We had hamburgers, sweet potato fries, and watermelon. It is starting to feel like summer! (along with the 95 degree weather- YUCK)

(3 plates you might ask? My mom came over to eat with us, since my dad is out of town)

Dessert: Good o’ ted drews 🙂

(huge ice cream. saving the other 1/2 for tomorrow)

Question for you:

What is something new/different that you ate/drink today?

What is your favorite snack?

three days!

Breakfast with the little guy was oatmeal again. Its in the 40s here!!!

My oatmeal: oats, PB, banana, cinnamon, and a scoop of pumpkin.

I tweeted this morning about whether or not I should go back to bed or go to yoga….

krissyswim16:go to yoga? or go back to bed?

Well I told myself, YOU’RE GOING!
And it was totally worth it. I even tried a new pose (we used the wall though, which helped A LOT!)

I wasn’t too impressed with it

On the way home, I got a 300 calorie pumpkin spice latte. Im not sure if it was worth it, but MAN it was good!

Then lunch. Good o’ pasta, broccoli, peppers, chicken, and parmesan cheese

And dessert was a chocolate pudding with some cinnamon pita chips. It was DELCIOUS.

 time to get Andrew from school, do homework, and then I cleaned up the Lego mess……and I found that the red spray paint SPREAD PAST the drop cloth I put down. AWESOME. So for an hour I was scrubbing that off the laminate floors. (it still looks pink. darn it)

Dinner was thanks to trader joes pizza dough. Love that stuff and my picky eater does too!

I had a side of acorn squash and he had carrots

I added corn to my pizza- DELICIOUS!

 we got Ted Drews ice cream. (my weakness) and watched the cardinals game at my parents house, with my parents, nephew, and andrew

I defiantly ate way to much ice cream. Deep breath- moving on.

THREE DAYS TO THE HALF MARATHON!!!!!

Question for you:

Have you started eating/drinking warmer things now that its cold outside?

(I guess I shouldn’t talk. I ate a whole galloon of ice cream after dinner and it was 48 degrees outside haha. But the oatmeal and coffee this morning was awesome!)

Oh my hip

Saturday morning started out nice and easy with the lil guy. My son and I watched Beauty and the beast after breakfast. We then got a call from my sister in law and nephew. They were going to a parade and we decided to join them!

It sounded like a great idea. We got there around 10. And the boys were playing, while we were chatting of course. And then Andrew fell.

THey were climbing on this little area (that I guess is used as a workout place to do sit ups and pull ups). He ended up slipping off on of the metal poles, and landed right on his right thigh.

I saw it. It didn’t look good.

He wouldn’t put ANY weight on it. And wanted to go home instead of the parade. UM. what? Andrew’s never one to miss a parade. so I knew something was wrong. He was in a lot of pain and crying.

So for the next two hours, andrew and I spent some time together at the urgent care. They took two xrays. And saw nothing wrong

We then went to my parents house (where I had to carry him in, since he still wouldn’t walk on it)

He is staying with them, because while we were in the urgent care, my friend’s Sarah and Jessica where coming in from California and Tennesse. After making sure he was comfortable, I headed home to meet the girls.

They are finally here!!!!!!

We were all STARVING. We headed to Favazza’s for lunch. Which is a delicious italian restaurant on The Hill.

No pictures were taken, because eating was HIGH on the priority list haha

We shared toasted ravs, and I got a chicken caesar salad.

Then it was back to the house to let our bellies rest. We were stuffed!

but only for a few hours, before heading to get ted drews ice cream! A St Louis favorite.

This was pretty much dinner.

We then watched a little tv.

PS the movie Switched, is NOT good. we had to turn it off

After getting pretty, we headed to Fast Eddies in Illinois.

We had a few drinks (and french fries)

Me and Sarah

Me and Jessica

There was a band, so we did some dancing and singing. with LOTS of people watching haha

Then home, PJs and bed. I swear we can do some major talking. And even more laughing.

But we still missed our friend Carolyn, who couldn’t make it.

~~~~

 this morning we woke up, and decided target and starbucks was in order

I bought some halloween stuff, and got a pumpkin spice latte that the blogging world has been raving about.

It. Was. Awesome.

I drank it in about 10 minutes haha

Then the girls had to leave 😦

The GOOD news is, is that Andrew is FINALLY putting weight on his right leg. So hopefully we won’t have to visit the ER today!

Question for you:

What do you and your girlfriends do for fun?

Do you see your girlfriends often?
