Made it.

Helloooooo New York!!

Leap Day Miracle... or day zero #24

What!? You have never heard of Leap Day Williams??
Well, I decided to take that message to heart and am currently headed for a 
husbandless, babyless, venture to the city that never sleeps.
If I survive the hobos, rats, pigeons, attackers and so forth... expect an epic return post.
And if not... at least I got caught up on my blogging :)
Happy Leap Day everyone!!!

life lately


Just to prove that we do do some things outside of running together, going to the gym, visiting family and friends, and terrorizing the cat. Like play in oatmeal boxes:
 Doing the Tom Brady... "you want me to throw that to him?"
 Snuggling with our new Mickey Mouse blanket from cousin Benjamin while watching the house of Mouse when "brrr [its] cold," as little d says every morning.
 although this is my favorite watching position (I promise I only ever let him watch TV when I need to foam roll or make food...also, it happens to be the only time I can take a picture of him without it being completely blurred!)
 Kevs borrows little d's scarf when the frigid Kron air gets to be too chilly for his liking.
 Then while Mr. D is home... this happens. So... not my fault.
 When he's with me he is just gangstah. Or in onesies so I can oggle his chunky legs.
 All in all.. life has been good. We are only months away from having a place to call our own but in the meantime we are having a great time hanging out with Abbie and Grandpa and Daddoo.

love letters week 7







Mr. D's belated birthday festivities

Was it really two weekends ago? It was. This past week with Mr. D home and commuting has been heaven and has made my life feel much more normal for at least a week... he related it to spring break  [you know, just a few weeks before summer vacation] and it has been such a welcome break. 

Not like the last few months haven't been awesome since my parents help me out with dishwashing, laundry, babysitting, buying groceries and baby clothes, and about a million other things I am sure will shock me once it no longer magically happens. I have been so spoiled :)
 
Speaking of spoiled, to start of Mr. D's birthday weekend we were originally going to go to Cheesecake Factory for some avocado eggrolls... too bad a 90 minute wait doesn't mesh well with a hungry toddler. But we went to another restaurant that was equally yummy and had some to-die for gumbo. We both decided if we ever go back there, we are just getting a heaping helping of gumbo.
Fitting I passed this sign on February 15th, huh?
For part of little d's present he found a ceramic football magnet to paint while I helped make other other bomb present.

And I sent out for Aunt Michelle's Muffin to it! muffins... Nutella, s'mores and banana PB chocolate chip. I think s'mores may be my new favorite!!! Seriously heaven. 
And so perfectly intact after a trip across the country. :)
And I got these cute little faux canvases at wa!mart photo... who knew they would turn out so cute?
The one below was even "flagged" because they thought it was a professionally done photo. Way to photograph, Keely!!
I cleaned our cars (I always try to think of something inexpensive to do).  His car took 15 minutes, mine took 45. So I suppose it wasn't really doing him a favor aside from un-pigsty-ing my own car, which I should have done months ago.
Made some oreo chocolate chip cookies... wow are they good. Just imagine how good each of them are individually, add it together and multiply it by infinity.
So so good. (although I have learned my lesson to use smaller amounts of cookie dough)
Almost as good as pinterest. Go ahead, pin it. :)
The cooking piece de resistance... crushed oreos baked in vanilla cake with nutella as frosting.
OH. EM. GEE.
Oh. Yes. I. Did.
The birthday setup for when he came home at midnight (I had to hide most of it in the morning since a little someone kept thinking the gifts were for him and another little someone kept jumping on the cake to smell it... I'll let you guess who was who.
Mr. D even made a little tie of his up for little d as thank you. :)
And we had a dinner of italian chicken and caprices mmm
...Oh, right on the plate little d made. :) He keeps putting his hands on the plate and saying "wow!"
What a funny little guy. And I think the Mr. liked it too!
All in all a wonderful weekend. Hopefully we made it a little special for our Boss man!

Another miraculously good (and much needed) night.

Terrified he would have a terrible night following the one night wonder, when I put little d down for the night, I went right to bed.

At 7:45. Pm.

Although I woke up at least 4 times in a stupor thinking "why isn't he awake right now?" I went right back to bed each time, and we both got up for the day at 7:45am.

Unfortunately it has wrecked havoc on his naps that have been under an hour both days, but I'm thrilled my bug is finally getting a good nights sleep. Even if it doesn't leave me much time for doing anything in the day.... I suppose I don't need 12 hours of sleep every night though, right?? :)

Thank you little d. The rest of my life I will remember this as the week I finally got sleep. There may be hope for a sibling after all.

Marathon Monday week 12


28 miles this week... 7 weeks to go. dun dun dunnnn.
Mon- 5 mile TM run (57 min), 30 min weights

Tues- 20 mins rowing, 40 mins elliptical, 50 mins Pilates (have I mentioned it has been about 3 years since I have been to a pilates or yoga class that has actually been challenging? I was the youngest person by at least 30 years in that class and I sorely miss pilates pulse and power yoga classes!)

Weds-12 miles run in 2 hours (10 miles on TM in 1:40, 2 miles in the BOB in 20 mins)

Thurs- 60 elliptical, 30 min weights

Fri- 5 miles TM run (50 min), Yoga (45 minutes was all I could take of that class... I am too impatient for glorified stretching!)

Sat- 6 miles TM (60 mins)

The good thing about this week is even though I was a mile shy of what my training plan called for, this week is my cushion week, meaning I had 19 weeks to train for only 18 weeks of planned training, in case I got hurt or sick which knock on wood I did not. This works out well for me because I am just repeating this past week THIS week, and next week I will be set and on schedule for the most grueling month of my life!! :)

The best part of the run: little hands sticking out demanding snacks. Too funny.
Not so favorite part of the run? I'll give you a small sampling:
NON. STOP.
 But at least he isn't crying like he did a few months ago :)
Aaaand his reward for being awesome during the BOB portion of the run:

 Post run meal of champions: POM, supercarbs and cocoa.
 Also I think these two memes sum up my life very well... mostly the second to last picture of both.
