Okay.Â First things first.Â Letâ€™s talk about Ironman March.
During Ironman March, you swim, bike, and run the total Ironman race distance, but you do it over four weeks.Â A typical week involves swimming about 875 meters, biking roughly 25 miles, and running 6-ish miles.Â Itâ€™s challenging but do-able and is a great way to prepare for REAL spring and summer triathlons.Â It was fun to see people finish ahead of the 31 daysâ€¦ I remember a few of you were done in a week!
Anyone up for it?
So.Â Since we are on Day 2.5 of being snowed in, our fridge is looking bare and boring.Â Instead of sharing a recipe, I thought Iâ€™d share whatâ€™s in my purse.Â Gina did this last week and it was so much fun to read.
Hereâ€™s what inside my Skip Hop diaper bag (which is pretty but functional – you can even throw it in the washing machine!):
A plastic lion.
My point and shoot camera
Three sets of gloves (so this is why my bag is so bulkyâ€¦)
A reusable, fold up grocery bag
Operation Beautiful Post-It Notes
Changing pad, diapers, wipes
Sweet Debbieâ€™s Organic Treats (a vegan/allergy free cookbook Iâ€™m reviewing)
The Frontgate catalogue (everything in Frontage is so pretty!)
And just for fun, I thought Iâ€™d do a photo of what was in Henryâ€™s elephant backpack on our recent trip to Florida.Â Heâ€™s too young to really wear it, but he really loves watching me carry it!
Beach ball (Deflated beach balls are my #1 diaper bag tip â€“ then you have an awesome toy anywhere)
A tiger car from his Nana
Regarding those stickersâ€¦Â Before we got on the airplane, I stopped at CVS and bought him a sticker dolly book. We spent forever dressing them â€“ best plane activity ever!
He thought the lipsticks were baby bottles!Â How great is that?
Whatâ€™s one super handy item that you always keep in your bag?Â
