I believe they ran 12 miles @ 8:04 common tempo.
So… I don’t understand how properly you all know Janae, however February thirteenth is among the most vital days in our family. Earlier than Janae, I didn’t know birthdays have been such an vital piece of historical past and it’s required to be celebrated and introduced to all we are available contact with, whether or not it’s the barista at Dutch Brothers, the retail employee at Lululemon, or simply about anybody that breathes within the close by neighborhood. Don’t get me unsuitable, I really like birthdays (particularly when Janae got here into my life), however I’d moderately have fun with a number of shut ones in secret haha. Anyhow… birthdays are nerve-racking, I’d moderately take a crashing affected person within the ICU than attempt to plan the proper birthday once more… haha simply kidding. Yesterday was superb, minus one factor…
Janae began the morning off early, like at all times, along with her working crew. I’m not a morning particular person, I’ve by no means been – so I did a little bit pre-birthday adorning late final night time and completed at 12:30 am. Janae got here house to a couple presents and a counter filled with letters. Considered one of our favourite traditions is to have the children write birthday letters to us and it’s actually enjoyable to see what they are saying and the way the letters change over time.
We bought all the children to highschool, and we ran as much as Salt Lake for some birthday purchasing a the mall. I’ve by no means met a little bit boy that LOVES going to the mall. He saved selecting out garments and giving it to Janae.
Beck doesn’t keep nonetheless, not to mention give lengthy hugs. However as we speak was totally different; he was buttering up the birthday woman all day. I’m positive he knew that many treats, cake, and ice cream have been on the best way – he was ensuring that he was going to get some.
For the primary half of the day it was simply us three. I do know Beck knew it was a big day as a result of he was excellent, even when he was 3 hours late to his nap time, he was nonetheless going sturdy, having fun with all of the spoils of birthday celebrations.
If we’re ever in Salt Lake, we at all times attempt to eat at a brand new place. THIS PLACE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. We went to a small Italian place referred to as, Sicilia Mia. We bought the Bruschetta and we bought…
The pasta carbonara with some actually actually previous cheese…
and at last, Beck bought some spaghetti with purple sauce, and Janae bought a dish that had meatballs, lamb and a lot different goodness. We completely liked this place!!! Our server was from Romania and informed us all about his household and residential.
Now, do you bear in mind how a lot I used to be telling you about stress? Nicely, this was it – I assumed it will be an superior concept to google search “The Greatest Banana Cream Pie,” and make it from scratch. I assumed I’d rating some main factors with Janae. I additionally thought I used to be fairly good within the kitchen, properly…. not all the things goes to plan. I believe this recipe was a recipe from Hell. Right here it’s: (https://preppykitchen.com/banana-cream-pie/) for many who are courageous sufficient or those that are simply WAY higher within the kitchen than I’m. It began all alright, then I didn’t prepare dinner the filling sufficient so it was simply soup and I attempted to thicken it with whipped cream, that didn’t work in any respect.
Regardless of what it seems to be like, these usually are not brownies. This can be a crust burnt to a crisp as a result of I forgot it was within the oven. As soon as once more – very humbling expertise. I’ll stick with the boxed cake mixes for now on.
Fortunately for me, the children, and particularly Janae…. Janae’s mother introduced over some Magleby’s well-known chocolate cake. Janae’s mother should of identified that with my cooking one thing was going to go unsuitable – so she saved the day. As you may see Janae didn’t need to wait and already had a bit of birthday cake.
After an thrilling and profitable day of birthday celebrations, all of us bought into mattress and watched America’s Funniest Dwelling Movies. It was an AMAZING day, and all of us made it by way of alive. Now there may be solely 364 extra days till a very powerful day of subsequent yr. Please notice, I’m being a bit dramatic😂
