I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends! What was the best thing you ate? Mine was my mom’s pumpkin pie followed by my aunt’s apple crisp, which tasted quite a lot like my mom’s recipe. I wonder if it was the same one? I dunno, but I should have asked her. Anyway, I thought it was about time for another Photo Dump, so here are a bunch of random pics from phone recently. Enjoy!
So many pug rolls. We refer to Murphy’s extra padding as his “skin suit,” just in case he needs room to grow!
TV time during dinner. We recently went out to dinner at The Fours in Marshfield, and we got seated in a booth with its own personal television. Quinn thought it was SO COOL.
I conquered my first “Flight Simulator” at KFIT earlier this week. It’s a double-under workout where you climb up a ladder starting at 5 reps (unbroken) to 50 reps (unbroken) and then back down again. The hardest part about this workout is that you can’t move onto the next set until you complete the previous one unbroken, so you can’t move onto 10 reps until you complete 5 and so on. We usually have a 10-minute time cap, so I never make it all the way up and down, but I finally did it in 9:45!! Hey, it only took me 4 years!
What big teeth you have! Just playing at the library.
Quinn sprints! Mal, Quinn, and I have recently started playing (and loving) a game called “Quinn sprints.” We basically just sprint around the house while holding Quinn. He thinks it’s hilarious and cracks up like crazy!
Hanging out with Q-Man and Murph-Dog. I love how Quinn wears his sunglasses!
Dying during a recent workout at CrossFit South Shore. I swear 65-pound Thrusters never get easier. They just make you feel like garbage, especially after a bunch of rowing. Blah. Unrelated: I wore my pants inside-out (without knowing) to this class.
Quinn’s new turkey. My aunt Joanne sent this feathery friend to him and it was love at first sight! (He’s kissing the turkey in the photo below!)
On our way into Cask ‘N’ Flagon. The “Dada Monster” chased Quinn from the car to the front door!
Tiny cuffed skinny jeans. Too cute.
After we picked up our turkey for Friendsgiving. We were all pretty pumped, especially Mal!
Early-morning long run at Southfield. It was cold and gray and reminded me a lot of marathon training last winter. I actually really loved it. I think maybe I’m turning into a cold weather lover… but ONLY for running.
My very technical 8-week half marathon training plan. I wrote it on the back of a CVS receipt on the way home from Remicade (before getting stuck in the elevator) and then snapped a photo of it to show Marisa, who I roped into running the race with me. (FYI: I already deviated from my plan and made it a bit harder. I only have 8 weeks until race day, so I figured I might as well make them count!)
An epic breakfast sandwich that I ate this morning. Eggs + bacon + cheese + DKB = THE BEST!
