10 pictures on the 10th day of the month!
{Document a snapshot of your life & find beauty among the ordinary things in your day!}
The 10th was Saturday, so here is a sneak peek of our day.
Originally, we had plans to go to Tahoe this weekend, but because it was in the 60's in Tahoe all last week & most of the snow that was there melted, we decided to stay home & enjoy a weekend at home. Good thing we stayed home, our weekend ended up being packed! 
We woke up Saturday morning earlier than usual because Kate's Girl Scout troop was having a Girl Scout cookie booth at 8am. (I usually like sleeping in past 8 am on Saturdays)
 Kevin dropped her off and I stayed in bed drinking coffee & watching the Olympics. This is one of my favorite mugs...a student got it for me. You can get them {HERE}
I also read a little bit of my book....gotta love Mary Higgins Clark.

Made my light & fluffy pancakes for breakfast & made them into heart shapes.

Added some sprinkles because sprinkles make everything better :)

 Our Valentine decorations are simple...a heart garland on the fireplace (I also have one in our kitchen) and a LOVE sign.
It was such a beautiful day...75 degrees, so it was lunch outside. Still drinking my coffee :) I had 2 fried eggs, some toast & some kale.
  I used Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe's on my eggs. SO good!

 The kids played outside for a bit & Kevin was on a mountain bike ride...the weather has been so warm that the trees think it is Spring.

 Check out the blooms...so pretty, but so much pollen!

After Kevin got home from mountain biking, I headed on a 4 mile run. I started running again last week. I hadn't gone running in over 5 months!!!
 It feels good to be running again, even though I am way out of shape. UGH.

 I had a destination for my run...I ran to where my sister had a booth set up for World Vision's 6k.
In March, we doing a 6k for Water. The average distance a child in Africa walks for water each day is 3.7 miles...a 6k. Every year for the past few years we have done this 6k as a family. 

Luke is playing T-Ball this Spring, so we bought him his first official glove.
He is so excited to play.

Afternoon snack....Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Avocado smoothie.
Recipe {HERE}

Our church has a Saturday Night Church service. We love it.

 It's more casual & it means we can have slow Sunday mornings as a family.

This past weekend at church, Gary Haugen the founder of IJM was the speaker.
IJM stands for International Justice Mission...you can read about this awesome organization {HERE}

After church, we had dinner & watched more Olympics!
For dinner I made Insant Pot Korean Beef. Recipe {HERE}
Since the Olympics are in Korea, I thought I would make a Korean meal for the first weekend of the Olympics.
The next 2 weeks, I will make meals that incorporate other countries who have a lot of Winter Olympians. I will have some Italian dishes, Chinese meals, Danish & German dishes. 
You know I love a theme ;)

So, there you have it...my 10 on 10 for February.
Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Yay for starting to run again. And what a great cause!!

  2. What a fun post! I've been meaning to do one of these (if it falls on a weekend since I can't take pictures at work) and I totally forgot this past weekend!
