Baby Forks are Fun

In case you were busy with life this weekend, here’s a couple of highlights from over the weekend:

Last night, my mom, Paul, Crystal, and my niece came over to cook out on the grill.

Danny cooked burgers and salmon. I bought strawberries that were the size of small apples.

I also had a slice of strawberry cheesecake that my mom brought. I couldn’t resist. I haven’t had cheesecake in forever, and it was so delicious.

The slice that’s missing is not the slice I had; it’s the slice my mom had. You better believe that I had a fat slice of cheesecake.

My McCutie Super Sweet niece got me the best Mother’s Day present.

How did she know?!

I made this cute flower-pot with my niece for my sister-in-law.

We put her tiny handprints on the flower-pot.


I didn’t go to the gym today. My calves were still sore from yesterday, and I just wasn’t in the mood to workout. I am going to try to go for a short run later. Instead, I ate breakfast and went shopping.

I had Fiber One and pineapple for breakfast this morning.

And yes, I ate it with a baby fork. All of our forks were in the dishwasher, and I was too lazy to wash one. Hey, if I’m not motivated enough to go to the gym, then I’m not motivated enough to wash a fork.

After breakfast and taking the kids to school, I did a little shopping.

I bought Baby McCutie Summer Baby a bathing suit and swim hat because we spend a lot of time at the splash park in the summer.

Baby bikinis are cute and all, but they don’t protect that sensitive baby skin from the sun!

I also ran to Ulta to pick up a new eyeliner because mine ran out. My favorite eye liner is the Ulta automatic eyeliner, and they go on sale for a $1 once or twice a year, and I always stock up. Well, I completely ran out of brown eyeliner and had to go pay full price for a new one. And they didn’t even have the color I wanted, so I had to settle for black/brown.

Now were just hanging out at home while the baby takes a nap. It is so beautiful out today, hopefully we’ll be able to fit in a walk or go to the park.

Questions of the day:

  • What’s your favorite makeup product?
  • What’s your favorite thing to shop for?
  • Any plans today?

Mother’s Day 5k

Happy Mother’s day to all you mamas!

My day started out bright and early with a Mother’s Day 5k.

We woke up about 6 am and got to the race about 7:45 am. I waited too long to use the porta potties and had to stand in line for 20 minutes. I just finished up right as the race started. Talk about perfect timing.

Unfortunately, I forgot my headphones and watch, so I had no way to time my walk/run ratios. I ended up counting minutes in my head during the race. Yes, I counted to 60 over and over again for the whole entire race. I ran for 3 minutes and walked for 1 minute. Except, I usually count slow, so it was probably more like 4 minutes to 1 and half minutes.

The course was very hilly. I’m not used to any hills, so it was hard on my calves.

Sue and Marlene are super speedy, and had to wait for me to cross the finish line 8 minutes after they did. I sprinted my little heart out at the end. They finished in about 28 minutes, and I finished in about 36 minutes. I came in 23rd out of 45 women for my age group, so I didn’t so that bad.

The kids colored me signs of encouragement.

There was tons of post race goodies.

After the race, we went to Egg Harbor for breakfast with my grandparent’s and in-laws. We had to wait a long time, and I was starving by the time we sat down.

I really wanted to order a giant unhealthy breakfast, but we went to Whole Foods for dinner last night, and I ate a lot, so I stuck to a healthier breakfast.

At Whole Foods last night, I had blackened fish tacos, fries, and a salad. I still haven’t used my WF gift card for groceries. I’m waiting until I have someone to watch the kids, and have a longer time to really look around. A piece of advice: Don’t take a family of four to dinner at Whole Foods if your on a budget. It cost us $40!

Back to breakfast…

At Egg Harbor, I had two scrambled egg whites, a whole wheat english muffin, and a berry fruit cup. I also stole some bites of Danny’s potatoes. The potatoes are the best part.

Danny and the kids got me some awesome Mother’s Day gifts. A Nine West purse that I maybe emailed Danny a link to, and a new yoga mat with a strap. Yay!

My mom, brother, sister-in-law, and niece are coming over in a bit to cook out on the grill. Have a great day!
