Favorite 1 – Friendships! A few of my college roommates came to visit last weekend and it was an enormous favorite! Spending four years living within 20 feet of these ladies was one of the best things that happened to me in college. We had the best time doing just about nothing. We laughed, and laughed, and then laughed some more. We stayed up late like we were in college, hello 2:30 am, and it was wonderful! I shared a little more about our weekend on Monday. I miss them already and can’t wait to get together again!
Favorite 2 – Dino Readers! I started a school-wide book club at my school 3 years ago and it is one of my favorite things. Every family gets a copy of a book and a reading guide with discussion questions for each chapter. This year I picked The Mouse and The Motorcycle and we loved it! Our ending celebration is tonight and we are watching Runaway Ralph and discussing the book. I’ve already started thinking about a book for next year. We have already read The World According to Humphrey and Charlotte’s Web Any suggestions?
Favorite 3 – Training With Friends! Our Maryland weather has not been so conducive to a fair weather outside runner, but I have been hitting the treadmill hard. I am remembering what a commitment training for a half-marathon is and it is so much better with a friend or 4. I trained for my first 1/2 with a friend, my 2nd pretty much alone, and now my 3rd with 4 friends. Our texts and knowing that someone else is out there running makes it so much better.
Favorite 4 – Spring Shoes! Seeing spring shoes online means that spring has to be here soon right??? That’s what I am telling myself as I hope for one last snow day next week. 🙂 I found these Sperrys on Zappos and Macys and they are both so cute and comfy.
Favorite 5 – March Madness! We are a March Madness family! We all fill out brackets, watch as much as we can, and are slightly competitive about it. The boys “play” the games on their basketball hoop and determine who wins their bracket. It is definite basketball madness around here for the next few weeks.
That’s it for this week. I hope everyone had a great week! I am looking forward to our St. Patrick’s Day celebration with friends and a weekend filled with sports. The boys have baseball practices, soccer practice, swim practice, and a soccer game. I’m looking forward to some sunshine and reading time too!
