It’s been a busy few days! I was all ready to go with a lovely Happy Birthday post for Mark Thursday, and it just didn’t happen. I felt kind bad about it until I thought about it…What’s more important posting about his birthday or Sky and I celebrating it with him?! Sometimes we (the collective we all!) can get so caught up in taking the perfect pic, or pics for the blog, or playing words with friends, or checking email and we forget to actually live life and have fun.
I didn’t post because I was busy making sure Sky got an early nap so she wouldn’t be cranky during birthday lunch at Asado with Daddy! I took her to Frog and Kiwi to let her play and tire her out. It worked because she made it through lunch and a visit to Fleet Feet, Mark wanted to see the store, and the bike shop next door to fix the flat tire on the jogging stroller.
Marks birthday gift from Sky…
We didn’t end up winning any of the prize drawings, but Michelle got a NB bag full of goodies, and I got a perfect for me Asian themed running shirt that Janna tossed at me! Oh, and we grabbed some wine and apps after to celebrate! Was a really fun evening of running adventure with Michelle.
Friday I headed back to the store (5th visit…this coordinator gig kept me busy this week for sure, but I LOVE it!) for the grand opening sale. Turns out the one thing I actually needed was not on sale and the shirt I wanted wasn’t on sale either, but I had some grand opening specific money, thank you Dad!, and one of my perks is an in-store discount so I still got both items, and still have money left over to wait for the Stroller Running Group Moving Comfort event coming up! Ended the evening at the parents for Mark’s birthday dinner with them.
Spent Saturday grocery shopping and getting ready for Mark’s birthday evening at Joey’s. The one and only thing he really wanted to do this year was watch Prometheus at Joey’s in his in-home theater. It seats 6, so was us, Joey and his girlfriend and Bob and Michelle. Had a nice dinner, good wine and drank, and watched a really good movie! The nice thing was Justina spent the night with Sky so that we could spend the night at Joey’s. He lives far enough out that it’s nice to have that option! Sky was a happy camper when we got home…didn’t bother her at all that we were gone.
Today we are chilling, watching football, hanging as a family, watching the 49’ers game with Brian. Best part is…Mark has tomorrow off! Love just hanging at home with my man and my baby!
