How did I spend my week off from school?
It was really a laid back kind of week. Tucker had quite a few sleep overs, we did some shopping, Ward and I worked on sanding and painting our bedroom and the ceilings in our bedroom and kitchen.
Stacy and I tried out Crossfit.
I also did a lot of running this week. Yes, I do run every week. But this vacation weeks are extra nice because the running happens mid-day in sunlight!
I was featured on Another Mother Runner. That was my rockstar day.
I bought myself an early birthday present. I absolutely love these socks. I have decided that these socks will be my official racing socks for 2012. You can get them too for less than $12 at Amazon. Actually, right now they are $11.03, but two days ago they were $12.
Yesterday I did take the kids to the Maine State Museum. Admission is quite inexpensive ($3 for the 3 of us) and it's a 15 minute drive.
Then last night we had family over to celebrate my birthday. We did celebrate a bit early since my actual birthday is on Tuesday, the 28th, but it's break and I wanted to do it early.
I did get an awesome YMX shirt and some Zipfizz from Jill and then some cash from my dad and my in-laws.
I'm pretty sure she rocks as a sister-in-law. Don't you think?
I am definitely going to be spending the $$ on some new shoes. I really want to get girlier with my new shoes but at the same time, I know mens shoes fit me better. I have a lot of thinking/shopping to do!
I also wrote my Yaktrax review after walking in the woods to find snow. I definitely called it in the post when I said after I post this we'll get snow. I actually said something like a nor'easter. We did not get a ton of snow, but we did get a couple of inches last night and it is so pretty.
Ward and guys are doing their 20-miler today, but before they head out, I'm going to get out there with my Yaktrax for a 5 miler, or more. We'll see how I feel. Have you entered my Yaktrax giveaway? Enter here. If you live in a snowy place, you will not regret it.
Later on tonight, the Rail Trail Chicks and I will be heading out for another birthday dinner to the fantastic Slates in Hallowell. I seriously love February break with all of the birthday celebrations!
Finally, I need announce the winner of the Larabar's Giveaway. Congratulations, Amy, over at Running Escapades. She's another New England blogger and a teacher. She just ran the Hamptons Half Marathon and it ends at the beach. I need to add that Half Marathon to my bucket list.
