Snippets


I had every intention of running this morning while the kids were at school, but no go.  These past few nights insomnia has been in the house, I think I slept three hours last night.  It's dark and rainy today, so you can see where this is going.

Mike and I had a great night out for our Anniversary, it was cool enough out that I wore my tall black leather boots and wrap dress, which was a nice change from jeans and tees.  I ran into a running group friend at the Irish pub where we met up for our training runs back in March, he hurt his ankle and hasn't run for five weeks, so we swapped injury stories.  Mike and I exchanged gifts in the car (so romantic), mine was a $30 itunes gift card for new running tunes, and I gave him.....socks.  Well, he needed them.



I can't stop eating roasted veggies.  We've been making cauliflower about once a week, last night Mike made two pans of roasted butternut squash with shallots, and no joke, I ate one pan by myself before we even had dinner.  We were in Wegman's yesterday, and they had itty baby cabbages wrapped in plastic, you just throw it in the microwave to cook it. 




This gives you a better idea of how small it is.

I think my insomnia has something to do with my Mom finally closing on the house I grew up in, and she's retiring tomorrow.  I decided not to go to my 20 Year High School reunion next month, I feel like it's too soon to go back home, when home isn't there anymore, and that will definitely make me sad. 



I had a fun afternoon with my friend Kelly on Friday, we took the kids to Pratt's Falls for a hike and to soak in the beautiful weather.  It was so nice to just gab the time away, and the kids had a ball looking for fossils and salamanders.


When I got home I had a package waiting for me, for an upcoming review and giveaway.....Eliza just loves the color.....shocker.

Let me get this straight, you wear leather boots and tease us about them and then you show a picture of a cabbage!

Whatever!

Thanks for the encouragement and congratulations on my first race.

Those are some crazy socks, I hope they target the hammy.
I really need to find a decent waterfall around here, short of driving 7 hours or whatever to Niagra falls.
Good luck in the Sleep department, you're still in the midst of 26.2 days of deserved rest.

I honestly thought that was the biggest brussels sprout I'd ever seen! Had to go back and read the text... I was skimming pics first. :)

Your anniversary gifts crack me up! Glad you got out and had fun. I think I need a set of days of the week compression socks the way my achilles is behaving.

From a guys point of view, go through his sock drawer and toss the old, holey socks, because he wont, and will still wear them, because they are comfy, it will drive you nuts.

abbi said...

Looks like a lovely fall hike. Roasted veggies sound good too...I love fall!

Katie H said...

Eliza is too cute!

I'm debating on whether or not to go to my ten year reunion in Nov.. I feel like facebook has made the need for these obsolete.

I hope you get some restful sleep soon- that's the worst!

kristen said...

I can't wait for THAT giveaway!!! I'm already claiming dibs on them!

And I love practical gifts. Socks is perfect.

Jill said...

Happy Anniversary :)
Hope the insomnia clears up soon...I got the same thing going on and it just plays havoc with life, huh? Sorry about your childhood house...I had to let mine go 2 years ago and it wasn't very easy. Love those pink socks, soooo fun! Hugs to you, Molly!!

Julie said...

Hi Molly,
I love the bright hot pink socks! I still need to get a pair of those babies:)

Sorry to hear that you are not able to go to your 20 year reunion. I went to mine two years ago and had a great time. I graduated with almost 200 classmates and only 80 of us made it.

Have a fantastic week!

I had already reached 1000 miles when I got injured. So I am just building up bike miles! Much easier!

Kelley said...
