Omg! Shoes!

Lately during my workouts, I haven't been giving it my all. I have a 5k less then a month away and I'm not even taking training seriously. I know I could PR on this course since it's flat but even that isn't getting my butt out of bed. However, there is a holiday called Valentines Day and my dad loves me so much to get me a lovely present. Usually it's something small but he went big this year. 

These shoes came in the mail and my workout today was my best one in a long time! The shoes didn't really give me the power but wearing them made me feel badass! Thank you Dad for helping me find the motivation I've been needing :)

Valentines Day

I really wish I could post pictures of the kids but sadly I cannot :( Words cannot describe how crazy they were yesterday! Note to self: If I ever have kids, there're never having sugar!

The day started out perfectly, the kids brought in their valentines for their friends, a ton of sugary snacks for the party (which were later regretted), and all the girls were wearing pink! We had a good morning with all ten kids, then things took a turn for the worse. After nap and diapers the kids had their party! There were cupcakes, cookies, chips, candy bags (which were placed in their bags), and noodles (snack from the kitchen). Everything went fine until the sugar set in. The kids lost it and were crazy! Ten two-year-olds on sugar is the worse. My face was licked, I was hit and kicked, and time-outs were given! I was so tired by the end of the day. Such crazy kids!

My parents were awesome as usual. My mom made my dad and I an amazing pasta dish! Top it off, my dad is getting me a pair of Nike Free :) The plan is to have them broken in by the St. Patty's Day 5K.

It's been a minute...

I'm back into the swing of things at work again. I'm still fighting off this stupid cold though. Parents keep sending their kids in sick so therefore I'm getting sick. People know not drink out of my water or share food I touched. This week has been a little worse. I feel really tired and just want to sleep once I get home from work. Being on your feet all day can kill you (and chasing around ten two-year-olds). \

However, I live for Fridays since it is Elmo day for the kids. It keeps them quiet, and the only other thing that keeps them quiet is eating! The video is probably as old me but it's a classic!

But usually I'm wishing that I'm at the beach without a care in the world
