Well, happy Monday y'all! I know you're just chomping at the bit waiting for my Monday rambles....or maybe not but here they are anyway!!!
I had a fantastic weekend. So refreshing to have a weekend all about ME:) Just a great opportunity to reconnect with my husband, hang out with great friends, bust a gut laughing, drink a little wine, eat too much sushi, finally get my toenails repainted after about 6 months, get a wicked awesome massage, rip the back of my jeans out trying to climb a rock wall perhaps slightly under the influence, light a small chunk of my hair on fire on a candle on the table, talk, dance, read, run, tango.... All in all, a great weekend. I woke up Sunday morning feeling very content. My life is in a very happy place. SO..... Time for a gratitude list!!!
*I'm thankful for my very best friend. The man who can talk to me with his eyes and no words are needed. The man who still treats me like a trophy wife EVERY day after 13 years. Opens my doors, takes my coat, and pulls out my chair....the man who values and respects me.
*I'm thankful for good friends who "get" me. Friends I can be totally myself with and never worry about what I say or what I do. Friends that make me laugh until people are wondering if I'm having a seizure. Friends who I don't see for months at times but KNOW nothing will ever change.
*Thankful for my amazing kids who make it exciting to come home! Make me remember that everything about my life is an adventure!
*Thankful for my sister-in-law who opened her home and spoiled Reese this weekend! Thankful for ALL my family who is always willing to help when needed.
*Thankful for my blog buds who are constantly inspiring and encouraging me! Thankful that I feel like I have a community that will drive me to be a better runner but still pick me up if I fall.
*Thankful that Theo (now called Teddy) weighs almost 7 pounds and is a happy healthy baby with NO problems.
*Thankful that although I can feel my foot, it is cooperating and letting me run!
*Thankful that I got my son's progress report and got this! You probably can't read it well but he is in 1st grade and is reading top of his grade at a level typical to a child in the 4th grade, 5th month! I'm so proud of him. He loves to read and loves for me to listen to him!
*Thankful for just every moment of this precious life that I was given just one of.
AND NOW TO THE RANDOM:
*For those who asked, I cut my hand between my thumb and my pointer finger trying to separate two glass bowls off the top shelf while making my daughters birthday cake. 3 stitches and I also got a nice dagger in my chest. I was not wearing a shirt because it is totally normal to bake cakes for your kids without a shirt on....(nothing twisted here. My shirt was sweaty after running so I took it off)
*I'm running a 5K next weekend. Actually, I'm not running it, I'm racing it. I'm planning to puke on my shoes. I felt particularly inspired by Ginny's post about her Friday night 5K and her thoughts on racing and then again by Amanda's FANTASTIC tune-up 10K!!
*I wore these jeans around for like 2 hours with this hole in my A$$!
*AND.... Just to prove I have it all together, the inside of my purse....
I read so many great race reports today! I'm going to make my rounds to comment tonight! Have a good one:)
