Officially over the hump for the week...maybe?
I feel like the 2nd half of the week is always busier for me!
Tuesday night went for a bike ride around Conesus Lake,
which is in my hometown.
I have run around this lake many times for training,
but it's a great ride too, mild rolling hills & great views!
18.5 miles in the 70 degree sunshine, I was happy girl.
|Start/Finish at one of the parks on the water|
Made some dinner at my parents that night:
|Spinach salad with Sauteed garlic zuchini, mandarin oranges and feta :)|
No dressing necessary!
I had the day off yesterday,
no phone calls
Was up early and on the road by 7 with my mom...
All for a VERY good reason.
[Just a heads up, there are going to be LOTS of baby pictures today]
I spent my day with this little man:
|My nephew Alden Alexander <3|
My mom and I drove to Elmira for the day
to hang out with my sister and her little man.
Hung out at the house, went to lunch and relaxed some more!
|Kept myself occupied playing Risk while he slept on me....|
|My little peanut :)|
I spent the day snuggling with him,
playing tummy time with him,
helping feed him...
and taking lots of pictures of him.
Okay, I know I know, lots of baby pictures.
I love my little nephew,
my sister is lucky to get all her time with him,
(and I am lucky I get to sleep more than she does).
Remember that time I told you about my living situation?
Well 5 is down to 4, which means....
I FINALLY have my space for my stuff!!!
Last night I got home, and spackled some holes.
No Hollie, not hoes, HOLES (in the wall).
(btw. that conversation totally made my morning.)
I am redoing one of the rooms in the house.
It needed some SERIOUS cleaning.
John was also seriously impressed with my spackeling skills.
No more swiss cheese walls!
Can't wait to paint & decorate this weekend!
Once I get the room painted and redone this weekend,
Laura-cave/office/guest room will be all ready!!! :)
Today started off right...
Therapy & Starbucks.
(really doesn't get much better.)
Working all day
then home to run,
then dinner with John, our friend and her daughter:)
IRONMAN 3 premier with the boys!
It's going to be a good day :)
Oh & today Alden is 1 month!
Happy day to my little nephew!
What have you been up to last few days??
Have you ever punctured your road bike tire so bad that you needed to replace it (and not just the tube)?
And for road bike riders...Do you think it's worth it to go to a higher priced tire (that claim to be more durable)?
Sounds like you had a awesome day off and was much needed with as busy as you have been! Your nephew is super cute!ReplyDelete
It was a great day all around.. rest and my handsome little man!Delete
Even though you had a lot of important stuff happening today(meeting your nephew, going for a ride,etc) i still can't get my eyes off that salad. That looks yummy.ReplyDelete
p.s. I just came back from the pool so that was the wrong time to read a blog that has food pictures :)
I love making salads with random stuff on them. OH boy... every time I swim I get more of an appetite than any other workout!Delete
Aren't nephews the best! I got to babysit mine for a bit last night (he's 2.5 months) and it was awesome!!ReplyDelete
It's amazing, I still can't wrap my head around the fact that my sister has a baby...but I love it!Delete
Awww your little nephew is soooo cute!!! I would have loved snuggling with him all day too!ReplyDelete
What a cutie! New baby smell is the best. And I'm not talking about their poopy diapers either! ;)ReplyDelete
My boyfriend notices my flats ... not me. He always changes them lolReplyDelete
Love how you had your day off! Your nephew is TOOO CUTE!
That salad looks delicious! I'm definitely going to have to make it!ReplyDelete
