Our Weekend in Pictures

Whoa, last week was a doozy, and this week is going to be pretty crazy too. I have a lot going on at work and am getting prepared to run the Hyannis Half Marathon on Sunday by eating as clean as possible, sticking to my training plan and trying to get a lot of sleep and kick this lingering congestion. Here's hoping I can make it happen! 

There is so much going on but I wanted to put up a quick post with some of the cute pictures I took of Maddie over the weekend and let everyone know that I still hate winter, especially after spending three hours running outside in it yesterday.

All of us had a three day weekend that made me wish all weekends were three days; it is just amazing what I can get done with just one extra day, and getting to spend extra time with my little family was pretty great. Highlights included: longs runs on separate days (yay for  not eating up a whole day!), Nutella pudding (by me) and banana bread (by Matty), Maddie's first time with  paints and a trip to the Museum of Science to see the dinosaurs and press buttons together. I know it is only Tuesday but I expect this week to chew me up and spit me out...right onto the Cape as soon as I get out of work Friday! Not so bad, if I look at it that way :) Hope your Monday disguised as a Tuesday is lovely!

Maddie made her first snowman!

Matty and I don't "do" Valentine's Day, but I came home from a long day of work and a board meeting to find a gorgeous vase of flowers sitting next to a perfectly crafted cocktail from that man of mine and it could not have made me happier. I tried to reciprocate with a cute coupon book that included a Groupon for his favorite German restaurant and a "get out of a diaper change free" card. Ah, romance, ain't it grand!?
Maddie wanted to wear my boots and take pictures. I sure love this outgoing little person!
Maddie's friend had her third birthday party and they hadn't seen each other in a while, so they celebrated by taking turns pulling each other in a wagon full of blocks. Toddler friendships are the cutest.
My little artist - taking her method very seriously.
Maddie asked me to put on her polar bear pajama shirt and shoes for her because she needed to go to her job, I asked her where she worked and she said "The playplace, Mama" as though that was the stupidest question she had ever heard. Then she picked up the phone, probably calling into work to let them know that her Mama was holding her up. Good work ethic on this one.

Showing Dada how to press buttons at the MoS.
Another work of art.
But seriously, this face! It tends to make all the stress and chaos melt away :)
