It’s been a great Mom’s Day so far.
Ken and I kicked off the day with our first real brick workout. We headed out the door at 7:00 a.m. for 90 minutes on the bike.
I love Ken. But, this bike might just also be the love of my life. Nothing wrong with a threesome.
Check out this awesome jersey and arm warmers from Yellowman at Athleta. Love them.
We rode west to the foothills. It turned out to be only 84 minutes of riding because we climbed the whole way out and freaking blasted it coming home. 23 miles total.
Then for the 20 minute run:
It was already warming up. We kept an 8:44 pace for 2.3 miles.
I felt great. The legs get a bit rubbery coming off of the bike, but that’s why we do these things, right? To train our bodies for the big day.
We got back from the run to find this, which made me smile big.
And these cards which made me smile so much bigger my face hurt:
Glaring gender differences.
But, “Thank you for a great childhood'? I’ll take it.
We got take out breakfast from Einstein’s and headed to the park.
I have no idea who this kid is. I’m not kidding. I think she might be taking a dump. She just kept hanging out with us. I told Sam I was adopting a four year old for Mother’s Day. And, yes, that is a designer Snuggi Ken’s sitting on. It’s all class around here.
I’m glad Sam’s not too cool to chill out at the park. He’ll have to move if a special need’s child arrives:
Guess Emma wasn’t in the mood for posing but at least she wore her high heels:
I know how lucky I am. It never escapes me. I never fail to soak it all in, not take it for granted.
Tonight – dinner with my mom – lemon drop martinis, grilled shrimp, edamame quinoa salad and lemon bars. These are Paula Dean 2 stick of butter lemon bars, so they will rock the house. LEMON!
Happy Mom’s Day to you guys too.
