The ladies awakened early and had their Valentine’s baskets ready for them.
(Sweet, beanie boos, a cute coronary heart sweater, a guide, some bathtub bombs and lip gloss. They had been pumped!)
When the women had been a lot youthful and I noticed present baskets for each.single.vacation, it made me really feel burdened. I used to be simply making an attempt to maintain them alive, clear, fed, and completely satisfied, so issues like Halloween baskets or Valentine’s baskets appeared unfathomable to place collectively. As a substitute, I simply tried to do different issues to have a good time, like hearts on their door with issues that I like about them. I nonetheless do that one right this moment and the women adore it – they preserve the hearts up all yr.
Now that they’re a bit older and might, , gown themselves, bathe themselves, and so on., it’s a lot simpler to do enjoyable little additional issues once I really feel prefer it.
(Confession: I’ve solely tried AG1 a few instances up to now and didn’t just like the style. The model requested me if I wished some to check out, so I figured I’d give it an actual try to probably share with household and buddies. Seems: I adore it. I even began craving the style within the morning after consuming it persistently. I like all the vitamins and I really feel nice after a few weeks of consuming it every morning on an empty abdomen. They supplied a reduction code to share, so I’ll put up it as quickly as I’ve it!)
I dropped the women off at college with their Valentine’s containers and goodies for his or her buddies, and went straight to the Pilot’s squadron.
On the way in which, I picked up a number of dozen Valentines donuts to depart on the bar for everybody to get pleasure from, together with playing cards and roses for his or her family members.
After I dropped off the great, I headed someplace I by no means go anymore: the bottom health club!
I LOVE figuring out on base. They’ve all the things I may ever need, all the enjoyable useful gear, and the vibe all the time challenges me to work exhausting. The bummer is that it’s a stable half-hour from our home (40 in visitors), so it’s not reasonable to go through the week. Since I used to be already on base, I figured it was the right time for a exercise area journey and obtained in an superior whole physique exercise.
Breakfast was ready for me within the automobile:
1/2 cup oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
It set within the fridge in a single day so the oats had been comfortable, and it was the right post-workout gasoline.
I headed straight dwelling to get to work for a few hours (answered emails, recorded a podcast episode, and designed the exercises for subsequent month’s Match Group) after which took Maisey on a stroll.
Lunch was leftover Tremendous Bowl chili, a bit of sourdough with butter, and a easy chopped salad with Poshi asparagus and Primal Kitchen dressing.
I obtained again to work (studied IHP, 1 1:1 consumer name, labored on my Friday Faves weblog put up, despatched some invoices), took a meditation/prayer break on my Go Mat (10 minutes)
after which had a lil afternoon deal with:
a decaf espresso with almond milk, collagen, and a See’s coronary heart truffle.
Rapidly, I blitzed via the home (ran a loud of laundry, wiped counter tops, vacuumed, and switched out the dishes) and headed to a gathering at church. After the assembly, I picked up the crew, who had tons of valentines and goodies from faculty!
We headed dwelling the place that they had after-school snacks, and we dropped Liv at dance with extra Valentines to trade. P and I labored on her homework at dwelling and obtained prepared for somewhat household date night time at Fleming’s.
Fleming’s is likely one of the eating places in Tucson that’s persistently very excellent. All of us love their meals, so I figured it will be the right Valentine’s dinner.
My lil Valentines:
As all the time, all the things was unbelievable.
We began with the salad (the Pilot and I cut up one), a shrimp cocktail, and P had the cheese plate from the children’ menu. Liv and the Pilot additionally obtained cups of lobster bisque – I attempted a style and it was aaaaamazing. For our entrees, all of us obtained filets, and shared asparagus, onion rings, and Fleming’s potatoes (cheese and calmly spicy). The Pilot stopped consuming desserts again in October so I shared this chocolate lava cake with Liv (P had ice cream and whipped cream). I had some sauvignon blanc and a Valentine’s cocktail that had gin, strawberry and lemon.
After we obtained dwelling, I’d like to say I crashed into mattress in a wine and steak induced slumber, however…not fairly. I folded and put away a load of laundry, set out the women’ garments for Wednesday, the Pilot completed homework with the women whereas I packed lunches,
and stayed up too late studying. 😉
I crashed out round 11 and was able to blitz once more this morning.
How was your Valentine’s Day? What was the BEST factor you ate yesterday? Any superior exercises?
