Today, I’m linking up for the first time with Running with Spoons for Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  Here it goes…

Thinking-Out-Loud

1.  Yesterday Parks was all about sticking out her tongue.  I’d stick mine out at her and she’d stick hers out right back at me – it’s hilarious.

IMG_37482.  I’ve eaten waaaaaayyy too much sugar in the past 2 weeks.  Between christmas cookies, fancy coffee drinks and just about anything else I think I’m on a constant sugar high.  I think it’s about time for some sort of cleanse or something (I actually have never done one of these or really know what it is but I’ll let you know if I actually do it and how it goes)

3.  I also haven’t run since bald head, my knee feels fine but with all the snow it’s been more difficult to find an opportunity.  We don’t have many shoveled paths here and I’m not quiet comfortable running the roads with a baby jogger and ice.  A gym membership is sounding more and more appealing (santa?  are you reading? please?)

4. Every day Parker and I try to go over the Christmas story.  We’ve read a few books, played with the kids version of youversion, and played extensively with her own nativity scene.  Parks would tell you her favorite “character” is the angel, and she’s not quiet sure why everyone always wants to be inside the stable, when obviously it’s more fun to be on top of it:)

5. This is our new favorite game

6.  I’m in a slightly grumpy mood today.  I shouldn’t be, it was in actuality a pretty good day – it stinks how sometimes 1 thing can just overtake your mood right?  I really need to run…

 

Are you dealing with a holiday sugar high?  Tips to beat it?

What gets you out of a grumpy funk?

Well, it finally happened – after almost 3 years we actually got snow (and boy did we get a lot of it!)  On Sunday the weather man forecasted 1 inch starting after 3 but by the time we left church at 1:15 there was at least 4 inches on the ground (note to self: wearing Birkenstock clogs to church on a day when its supposed to snow = not a good idea).  Unfortunately, that meant a 3.5 hour ride home for us:(  Then again, early Tuesday morning they skys opened up again.  This snow was much more exciting because:

a. we were all home and able to enjoy it falling without needing to drive anywhere or do anything2013-12-08 14.04.33

b. Andrew got to work from home

c. Since it was still daylight,  Parker got to play a bit in the snow (I’m not sure she found this quiet as exciting as I did)2013-12-10 11.57.58 2013-12-10 12.02.22-2

d.  this cooped up momma finally got a little exercise in shoveling the snow (we can talk about my severe lack of workouts later, ok?)

e.  The roads were plowed and clear by late afternoon, so Parker and I were able to run off for a quick Starbucks date with my sisters so Andrew could have the house to himself for a conference call2013-12-03 17.25.16

f. I got a bunch of Christmas shopping done (online of course)

g.  This snow still looks prettyIMG_3752

h. (I totally almost labeled this one 9 and then realized I wasn’t counting – epic fail) The dogs love the snow and have been playing outside for hours = exhausted pupsIMG_3753

i.  Everyone off of school means rapid fire group texts
