WHAT THE HECK. How is it the end of August? I just don’t understand. How am I already planning my baby’s 1st Birthday Party. NO. NO. But also yes because he is the perfect age right now and is just hilarious. Harry turns 11 months old on Friday. He’s super chatty, loves to sing, could eat bananas and avocados all day long, loves going for walks, loves Ruthie, still thinks he’s a dog, loves bathtime, and is really good at giving kissies. He doesn’t like Chipotle, getting his dipey changed, or going to bed.
So it’s already been a month since last time and I feel like not much has happened. The biggest thing that happened was that my sister got MARRIED. YAY. It was the most perfect day, perfect weather, perfect venue….just everything. I don’t remember much past 9 PM LOL but that’s OK. It was my one night per year to get crazy and celebrate my fave lady.
I had to give a speech at the wedding dinner and I’d say it went well…except for the part where I called their dog “The Golden Teddle Doody.” I meant to say “Teddy the Golden Doodle.” Oh well. It all worked out.
The food was fab, the dancing was fun, and the photobooth was just a blast. Ugh, I want to do it all over again.
Sam and I even got in some fun hiking together (this rarely happens hehe) and we slid down the Alpine Slide. I wish I would have gone faster but it was a super cool experience. If you’re in Lutsen, try it.
Other than that, I feel like life has been the same. Oh, except I can’t stop drinking the new LaCroix flavor…HELP.
I’ve been making it to the gym 3-5 times a week so I’ll give myself a pat on the back for that and typically run 3 days a week. On wednesday I usually do my longer trail run at the willow river state park. I’m still not sick of that place.
At the gym I’ve been trying to do heavier lifting like deadlifts and presses mixed in with some stuff like lateral lunges, box jumps, snatches, and sprints. Gotta keep it fun and exciting ya know.
Eating has been…lets just say MEH. I keep telling myself…”OK, today is the last time I’m going to have ice cream”…then I find myself indulging in a bucket of it the next evening…I guess I’ll never be able to give up the sweet stuff.
I do try to balance out my sweets by eating lots of veggies/protein. Lately my fave snack is hummus and cut up veggies. Or fresh grilled kebabs. I could eat this stuff all year long. Maybe I will.
I’m getting pumped for the fall weather/fall foods. Hello soups and stews, pot roast, pumpkin pie, and everything else that comes with cooler weather.
OH, I almost forgot. Our house is on the market. YAY. It’s a big relief but also a big stress because we just want to sell it and move on. It will happen when it’s meant to happen though right?
Okay, my LaCroix is gone so I must go find something else to drink.
