The BIG 3-0!

This is my birthday present from Drew. Call me old-fashioned for wanting a basket. (That's cool! Seriously, call me a nerd!) I wanted it especially for going to the farmers market on Wednesday's and Saturday's. Imagine flowers, fresh bread, fruit, and veggies hanging out of it. Sounds lovely right? It gets even better. The basket comes off with the push of a button so I can carry it with me!

Of course since I got a new toy, Drew had to get one of these so the whole family could go for bike rides. It's almost become a tradition for everyone in our family to get spoiled on a birthday - it totally doesn't matter if it's not yours. Works for me (wink, wink)!

Plus, Drew starts his marathon training Monday so now we can all cross-train together!

Happy Thursday Friends!

Random - MIA

I'm sad because for whatever reason my iPhone cord is not working correctly.  I have tons, I mean TONS of photos to share.  And I've been to so many different places in the last month and a lot has happened. We've been to Grand Rapids twice, I went to Chicago for the night, we've been to the beach, and got new windows. But sadly, today is not that day. 

AND I've been MIA lately because I've been tutoring an Indian student in math for 3 weeks.  He's only here for 4 weeks and he's from Calcutta, INDIA. So when I come home in the afternoon I'm busy cleaning up, checking emails, reading your blogs, and playing with my kids.  I'm so thankful for this opportunity, but I do miss my mommy friends and their kids too.  Next week girls!  I can't wait!  Let the mommy fun begin again (for me).

So last but not least I turn the big 3-0 tomorrow.  30! and I'm so pumped.

(Oh and pics to come ~ pinky swear!)

Not so Wordless Wednesday

Do you ever have a day where you've got what seems like a million things going on inside your head?  That's me today. Especially when I've got an idea in my head and it sounds so lovely - then gets totally squashed. Then I thought of the serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Yep, that's what I needed.

Last Thursday when it was so hot outside.

Yesterday I asked Teague to push Finley and he happily ran over to help her.  LOVE!

Sorry I've been so absent lately. I've been reading and running A LOT.  My 10k is this Saturday and my last training run is today. Well, tonight since I'm waiting for Drew to come home from a business meeting.  I'm excited!

Happy Wednesday Friends!
