Pre-Turkey Weekend

It’s THANKSGIVING WEEK! Though I’m not going back home and seeing my family this year (womp womp), I’m still excited for the holiday and spending time with B’s family. FW loves hanging out with his cousins, and well, I love stuffing 🙂

This weekend was another nice weekend at home. I got in a few runs – outside AND inside – and as always, we had some good food. Here are some of the highlights:

A run outside to kick off the weekend. It was cold and wasn’t my fastest run, but it was good to get outside early while everyone was fast asleep.

Friday we celebrated Thanksgiving a little early — at FW’s school! They had a Thanksgiving lunch celebration for the kids and their families.

It was fun to stop by in the middle of the day and grab a quick bite to eat with him.

Friday night we ordered in – Aladdin’s Lebanese food. It’s nice when we can all eat the same thing, but because FW is such a picky eater that rarely happens. He does love their pita quesadillas with fruit, though!

Saturday morning included some dancing.

Followed by cookie baking (with a toddler and baby).

And then naptime.

While LM was napping, I was able to get in a short treadmill run. I did 1.5 miles running, then stopped and got water, walked a bit and did about 1.5 miles more.

After naps, it was time to head outside for a little walk! We all bundled up.

We walked over to my friend Emily’s house to drop off some cookies and FW got to play with her son, Jack. The two of them are about 6 months apart.

That night, B made us some pizza. I LOVE his pizza and this batch was especially good.

Sunday morning we did some more baking. This time, FW and I made lentil, banana and zucchini muffins.

The day also included some indoor playing.

And a short stroller run with the family. FW fell asleep while we were out.

Th rest of the day flew by! It included not only dinner with B’s family, but also a haircut for FW!

At last, he can finally see again!

Questions for you:

  • Did it start to get cold near you?
  • How do you feel about running in the rain?
  • Have you run with a stroller?

I’m linking up with the weekly wraps.

  1. I’ve ran in a total down pour before & loved it! However, that was several years ago so I probably wouldn’t do it again now, lol

  2. Your little lady is so pretty! I have never run with a stroller and am always so impressed by the Moms who do I can’t imagine how hard it is going up a hill! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your littles. Thanks for linking.
