A fridge full of candy and my toddler is OUT OF CONTROL.

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but I could really use a glass of wine and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

It’s a list kind of day…

1. I’m actually SUPER busy at work and I am not used to such things! Things should slow down once January is over…I hope.

2. Our refrigerator doesn’t have much in it, but we have enough Christmas candy to get us through the zombie apocalypse.

3. I ran with Jeanette yesterday! She had an accident and has been recovering for a month. It was so great to enjoy a (treadmill) run with her.

I ran 6 miles and it was a tough one.

Mile 1 9:13-8:35 pace
Mile 2 8:00 pace
Mile 3 7:47 pace
Mile 4 7:41 pace
Mile 5 7:35 pace
Mile 6 8:35 pace

4. We discovered an indoor play place close to our house. We will be spending the entire winter here because Annabelle loved it and it tired her out.

5. Speaking of Annabelle…wow, this week has been a struggle. She will be 2 on Tuesday (I still can’t believe it.) and she is in a very difficult stage. I blame us for some things that we didn’t end before they started, but we def have a few rough weeks ahead as we try to change some behaviors. Parenting is hard, very rewarding, but hard.

She fell asleep leaning against the window yesterday afternoon. 🙂

6. She still loves selfies.

8. Go Ravens! I can’t wait for tomorrow!

9. I want to go to dinner and a movie. I haven’t been to a movie since last November (like November 2013). A date night is much needed.

10. I miss them.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how has your week been?

Moms…any encouraging words would be great. This toddler stage is tough!

Fun Things Friday: Stories from my iPhone

Happy Friday! I am so glad this week is over… I feel like I may have to bury my face in pizza and ice cream tonight.

Ok, so here are some random pics from my phone and I’m going to consider them “fun” today. Mmk. 🙂

I am properly preparing Annabelle for life…she knows the importance of a selfie.

My mom’s card to me on race morning…I absolutely LOVE it and I tear up every time I read it.

AB snuggling up with Molly. She just learned how to say “stay” and point to Molly. 🙂

I had an intense craving for Chipotle this week. Why is it so good??

Baby shower for my work friend Alex and his wife Regina. Can’t wait to meet their baby girl! PS Marissa makes the best cupcakes.

I took one of my internet BFF’s advice and added strawberries and bananas to my cereal (Kashi Honey Nut) and it was amazing.

Linda’s Life Lesson for the week: If you see that ice cream is 2 for $5, you must get 2. Or as my friend Matt pointed out, I should have gotten 4.
