friday- 3 miles on TM
Another weekend of some fun fall activites. I’ve said it before and I’ll prob say it a million more times…fall is the BEST in UT. The weather is perfect and this weekend we tried to take advantage of it.
Friday we woke up early to meet at my MIL’s house.On the way J and I stopped at a park because the colors on the mountain were so pretty. I’m no professional so the pictures don’t even show how bright they were, but I did capture J and he’s pretty cute;)
Had to get one with his boots. He LOVES his Toy Story boots=)
My SIL Whit met us at Lee Ann’s to paint some pumpkins with our boys.They were both very focused on painting them just right.
Seriously, do you see his chubby little arm? I die!
After, we chatted in the driveway while the boys rode bikes, played in the dirt, and ate some Popsicles.
That night I made one of my favorite fall recipes. It’s so easy since it’s a crock pot recipe. All you need is:
chicken breast or pork chops(one for each person, frozen is fine too). Josh doesn’t like pork, so we used chicken.
1 yellow onion chopped and peeled
2 green apples chopped
brown sugar to taste
a dash of salt and pepper
You put all of those ingredients in the crock pot on low for 5 hours, or high for 3 hours. Serve with sweet potatoes. Such an easy healthy dinner that tastes so good! The chicken is so moist and sweet. I love how the onion and green apples taste together, all very yummy!
Saturday J and were back outside raking leaves. He loves playing in them and I love watching him. We played for a solid hour before we went inside to warm up.
We put some more Halloween decor up, went to the Asian market to get some ramen Josh has been craving since we were in Tokyo, and Josh watched the BYU game while I went and did my nails with my mom and sister.
Sunday was the usual church, nap, and dinner with family. This week my mom invited us to dinner. J was such a gentleman and helped with the dishes after(smearing mashed potatoes on everything with a sponge, so helpful ha).
On a running note- this weekend was the Haunted Half I’ve ran every year since they started it. I’m so sad I missed out but I’ve loved seeing all the pics. I’ve decided to take a step back from running races this year to give my body a break. It has been SO hard! So, I need to live vicariously through all of you, tell me about your training and races!
what’s your goals fitness wise this week?
