Picture less

I don't have any pictures from today yet...but Emmy has found a boyfriend at the gym (he likes her too its crazy but she could have done worse lol).  Really I just wanted to record my workout.

I was looking at the elevation chart for the Augusta Half and it looks like this...
(Red? Really?)
So during my first day of "speed work" on the Hal Higdon plan I used some incline.  

After body pump...1/2 mile warmup at slightly faster than normal pace.  Then increased incline to 3 and adjusted speed to 6.3 and ran 5 x 400m. I have no idea if its the right way to do it. But it was hard and I have lots of room for improvement. So it can't be hurting!

Weekend Wrap Up

Yesterday we were super busy.
We cleaned out Caitlyn's room after I ran and went to the gym.  Then when mom and I went to dinner with Lindsey and her mom, they built a tent to watch movies.

I don't want to imply that everything around here is a competition...but we built this tent tonight.

 And I think it's clear who the winner is ;)

Caitlyn and Emmy had a fashion show before church. 

Who would have thought heels would be tough for a one year old.

Clearly not the case.

Then we had church.
And Maria's.
Driveway time.
And then it was time to eat again!

See? I cook!

Walk in the park

We took the girls to the park tonight. I took a rest day since I've been having to spend all my time here...

in the floor stretching my IT band.  I also had my session that I "won" with the trainer at the gym yesterday and I'm pretty sure every muscle I own is sore.  

The girls were home with their daddy today.  They did some home improvements.

And played in the rain.

The humidity has some static going on.
On the agenda for tomorrow:
-organize all the girls clothes. This may be a little ambitious.
-6 mile run around the neighborhood.  I mapped a route with my garmin.  This may also be ambitious.
-boot camp at the gym.  There's a first time for everything. 

Have a good weekend :)

Cleaning out my closet

I cleaned out my closet yesterday and found the girls some good play toys.

I can't believe I used to wear some of this stuff!  

This morning we got ready for the gym....

It was pigtail day :)

Caitlyn made her baby a bed while Emmy was napping.

Then she had to give it a try :)

National ice cream day to present

Sunday I actually dragged myself out of bed and ran before James left for work.

I actually enjoyed it and once this humidity dies down I will be doing this a lot more.

After church we had to go get ice cream.
You have to get ice cream on National Ice Cream day.  I am sad to report that there are no pictures of Emily with her ice cream...because she wouldn't eat her food and didn't get any.

Dad was off Monday so the girls got to get spoiled by both grandparents.

It was also actually nice outside.  It's been such weird weather.

I got in my long run at the gym yesterday morning for the week, I got in 5 miles while watching the Bourne Identity. I was nice.  Then when I went to work, cousin Karly kept the girls.

I have no idea how she got Emily to hold still that long!  And since I wasn't here at bedtime Daddy James decided to switch things up....

and ohmygoodness that's my baby sleeping in her big girl bed :( no like

It's not raining....not right now anyway.

We snuck outside for a few minutes before the thunderstorms are scheduled to show up.

Poor Daddy James has to work today but somebody has to do it :)

The girls have been having a big time at the gym and with their Grammy.  They have been staying busy for sure!

Happy Saturday!

Swimming with Mae Mae and Ellajay :)

This morning we started what I hope will be a Wednesday morning tradition for weeks to come: we went swimming at Emily's bffs Grandmas house.  

The setup was perfect for little ones.

Carpet on the deck =no splinters.

Puddle jumpers abound. And Caitlyn has a built in BFF! 

All these girls are so cute together! So much fun!

The weekend is over already!

Saturday morning I got up and ran with a lady I met on Facebook and it was super fun!

These were our stats.  We slowed down a little at the end because I'm a talker...whoops.  When I got home I cooked breakfast.

That baby loves her some turkey sausage!  Then I packed them up and headed to the gym.  

The girls are getting to be right at home up there and the nursery girls are so good to them!

Tonight we hosted a welcome to the neighborhood cookout for some new neighbors and it went really well.

The downpour was the only chance I had to stop and take a picture.  Thankfully it didn't keep up long.  I think we ended up with about 28 people and after fixing a couple of lunch plates only had 2 hot dogs left.  That spells success to me! Can't wait to do it again!

Day with Grammy

.The girls got to spend their day with Grammy and Grandaddy today.  They got to go on a lunch date again...

To wendys! And got frosty's I'm sure.

Then Grammy took the girls back to our house for Caitlyn to take a nap. And Emmy got to spend some time on the swing.



Not good. She's still got a knot but she's tough.

I'm not sure if I put this one up yet but look at this precious face!

Sassy pants

Emily had to rearrange her whole room to gather up this ensemble....

But she was working it!

Then while I was getting Caitlyn down for her nap I came out and found this. Eek!

She got out her own ice cream!
