    Food always tastes better when it’s made special for you! When I was pregnant, my fiance made me zebra cheesecake brownies when I was craving them and they were fantastic!

    Awww that is so sweet of him!!! They look a little crispy but sometimes that is exactly what you want. I would make some for my house but I think they would tempt me to much. :/
    Strollers are awesome for little toddler legs that get tired fast.

    That is SO sweet! Endurance training is definitely a team sport in that it takes others to support you in achieving your goals. I really believe that relationships in general are about tradeoffs – one person supports the other when needed, and you flex according to whatever is going on. It doesn’t have to be 50/50 every day as long as the support is mutual!

    Awwww bless him! It helps to have support at home when things get tough with training, and you are training way more than I ever have! Glad the cookies turned out well too…they are actually making me want a cookie right now! 🙂

    So sweet of him! I have a story to top the prepared cookies dough story: When we first started dating and were grocery shopping, I went to the banana’s and grabbed a bunch and broke off what I needed. My husband (bf at the time) was like “what are you doing?!” and I said I was breaking off what I needed. “You can do that?!” completely shocked. He thought you had to buy the exact amount of banana’s that were out. lol.

    Food always tastes better when you know a lot of love was put behind them to make it 🙂 I know how important it is to have a supportive spouse! I’ve been one and I have one so there will be sometime in the future where you will have to do the same for Derek I’m sure! That is part of the fun of marriage 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your week!

    What an AMAZING husband! Talk about brownie (or cookie) points for this one here. I think your boy has ladies “awwwweing” and swooning all over the globe 🙂

    Mmm, cookies! Derek is a champ.

    Yes, families with toddlers do the zoo. It’s an outdoor, relatively enclosed environment where they can run around like maniacs, but you can be mildly entertained by the animals so it’s not as brain-numbingly boring like the playground can be. And apparently it’s educational, especially when potty training.

    I seriously cannot handle how sweet that is! Seriously, the support crew (be it spouses, sibs, parents, friends) that help us through these endurance events really deserve a medal just as much as the participants. Go Derek!

    Ah, that is so sweet!! (pun intended 🙂 Glad you got a “fun” day in at the zoo this weekend – everyone needs a little rest and fun sometimes! You may be crazy busy right now, but think how much time it’ll seem like you’ve “gained” once the Ironman’s done…unless of course you go for another or reach even higher, which I feel like completing a race always does for me – I have to set new goals 🙂

    Super nice of Derek! Nick also loves CCC. I went to Lowry Park a couple of weeks ago with my sister and nephew and it was packed with strollers! It’s perfect for toddlers. My nephew is a year and a half and loves it. Plus it’s pretty inexpensive. Glad you had a little R&R from all the training. 🙂
