Family dinner + an ALL day conference…+ super exciting opportunity!

I know I’ve said it before, but it still stands true, pre-run coffee is the second best coffee. Following very closely the FIRST best coffee, post-run coffee. I had a few sips before heading out for an easy 3 miles with Rhea.

Sunshine runs are my fave.

I had a quick meeting in-between my run and the gym, so I inhaled breakfast before that started.

When you want to be close to your sister, but don’t really want to go outside…these two. Rhea sits in this spot all day, every day.

Lunch was a chicken Caesar salad with avocado. This was delicious. My all-time favorite Caesar salad dressing is Primal Kitchen’s Caesar. It’s the best.

City Utilities had to have our power off for about 30 minutes to work on something and Rhea was terrified of their big trucks. Never mind that she sees Jake in his all the time…she took refuge under my desk. Such a sissy.

I had a faculty meeting in the afternoon, so I moved out to the sunroom for a little more light while the power was out. SO thankful for technology and all it can do.

My Dad and I went on a bike ride last night, so I invited my Mom to join us for dinner after. We had the rest of the zucchini lasagna that I made Sunday. They love it just as much as Jake and I did.

Zucchini lasagna and garlic bread – the best combo.

My sister sent over some clothes that she did’t want anymore. I set them on the bed and Lu didn’t waste any time making herself a bed on them…

I am so excited to share this amazing opportunity from Trail Sisters! Each quarter, Trail Sisters and The North Face will provide six mothers with $150 (and some goodies) to put towards anything that will help them get out the door for some well-deserved and needed “me time.” Examples include, a mom could use that $150 to hire the next-door neighbor to watch her child, or she could purchase a child carrier so that the child could come with.

This will allow us to help 24 moms throughout the year, but we’d like to go above and beyond, and with your help! We are offering the option for anyone to donate to this grant, and The North Face has generously committed to matching an additional $500 per quarter! This means more grants for more moms!

Any and all moms are invited to apply for a $150 grant (must reside in the USA). We just ask that you fill out a short form so that we can learn more about you.

I have a conference today from 9AM until about 7PM…woof! I’m sure it’ll be good, but that’s just a loooong time.

Happy Tuesday, friends!
