A Little More Each Day

One working mama learning to run & to maintain my 100+ pound weight loss!

A gorgeous summer night (and a WINNER)

on June 21, 2014

Thanks for all of the great book recommendations! The winner (per random.org) of the signed copy of Train Like a Mother is Annmarie at FitFoodieMama. Email me at littlemoreeachday@gmail.com so I can send the book your way!

Last night was an almost perfect summer evening. I picked O up from school (and answered questions about Weight Watchers on the way out – I’ve got to get better at answering those questions on the fly!). We headed over to pick up our bag of goodies from the CSA. This week we got kale, a loaf of low carb bread (a little odd), beets, strawberries and zucchini.

Then we headed over to the best packet pick up ever, at least if you’re a little boy: at a toy store, with a makeshift beach set up out front and free beach balls just for showing up:

O loved the little beach they'd set up in the parking lot!

Tomorrow morning I’m running a 5K and then the 3 of us will do the family 1 mile fun run together. Very cute shirts too:

For some reason O thought the little guy was a monkey!

O got his first snowcone while we were there too. Thanks to Mickey Mouse clubhouse, I got to hear repeatedly on the drive home exactly why the shape was a cone.

Then we came home to this lovely piece of mail from Disney:

And all worked together to make a fantastic dinner (recipe coming next week!).

We went to sleep to the sounds of a summer storm. It was an absolutely fabulous evening all around! Hopefully it won’t rain us on this morning as we all head out for our family fun run! Send good, dry vibes our way!

  2. […] big sponsor of the event was a local toy store, so we had the very cool packet pick up I mentioned earlier this week. The race didn’t start until 8:30, so it was nice to get a slow start on Saturday morning […]

  3. That DCL planner looks nice! I am super excited for y’all… a Disney cruise sounds incredible!
