Family time, sunshine, and lots of food.

Late last night, we arrived home after a fun-filled weekend visiting my brother, SIL, and nieces in Florida. Here is a recap of our trip in pictures. 🙂

Coffee and pedicures! My runner’s feet needed some TLC.

What was the best part of your weekend??

Pedicures, Garukabars, and a Mini Workout

I spend my lunch breaks at work doing one of these two things:

1. Working out

Or

2. Getting pedicures with the girls

Yesterday was a pedicure day!

I’m jealous of people that actually have toenails.

For lunch I tried out my free sample of Garukabars. Go to their website and you can get one for just $1.00!

The bar is hand made with whole peanuts, dried cranberries, and raw honey and it was very tasty. I really liked the consistency because it was softer, Rice Krispie treat-ish, and not as dense as other bars. One bar has 260 calories and 10 grams of fat, so I ate half yesterday and I look forward to eating the other half this afternoon. Another great thing about Garukabars is that part of the proceeds to to the International Gorilla Conservation Programme. 🙂

After work I ran a few errands…the jewelry store to pick up my ring, the bank, and the Lube Center (yes, that is what it is called) for an oil change. This place is awesome…my car was ready to go in 10 minutes and they set my clock to the correct time. For the last 5 months I’ve been adding 2 hours and 22 minutes to figure out the correct time.

Since I wanted to get home to this beautiful girl…

… I did a very quick workout. I hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes and then did some push ups and abs.

I got home and made dinner…meaning I put the Amy’s frozen pizza in the oven and microwaved the steam fresh Brussels sprouts. :-). This pizza has cheese and pesto on it and it is really good.

Today is a rest day because tomorrow is the Zooma Annapolis Half Marathon!!

Do you like pedicures? I have a friend who feels weird about them and I think it is so strange ;-).

Are you good at tapering for races?

Florida Part 1: Annabelle’s first plane ride!

Last Friday, my mom, Annabelle, and I flew to Florida to visit my brother (AKA Uncle Disney) and his family.  Annabelle was beyond excited for her first plane ride :).

I fed her as soon as we got on the plane and she passed out for almost the entire flight.  Phew…I was a bit nervous about how she would do, but she was great!  The hardest part was getting her out of her car seat and putting the car seat and stroller through the x-ray machines!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Once we landed, Emmy picked us up from the airport and we headed straight to the mall…pedicures were desperately needed.  While we got our toes done, John, Morgan, and Kenzie took Annabelle shopping.  We are in trouble…she picked out her first thong!  ;-P

After visiting for a while, we headed to bed and Annabelle slept in her travel bassinet for the first time.  This thing is really convenient and worked great…I hope to get some more use out of it before she is able to crawl out of it.

She is a side sleeper and loves to have her arm over her face.

Stay tuned for Florida Part 2:  Morgan’s softball game and our trip to Sea World!

What do you think?

Have you ever traveled with an infant before?

Disney World or Sea World?
