A weekend of celebration

These last few days were busy in our house. Thursday was my 35 (*cough, cough*) birthday. And to celebrate I was in a picture from the half marathon that ran in the the Community Seniors section of the Sunday Sun (local Sunday newspaper). Apparently some 70 year old lady was also running the half marathon and finished a mere 2 min behind me. How awesome am I? More importantly, how amazing is she?

Friday was our 10th wedding anniversary and Jay took the day off so we could go get him some much needed new clothes. He has lost weight in the last few months. After finding out his cholesterol was slightly elevated he has taken to eating much healthier and exercising. And his cholesterol is down not to mention his pants size. I couldn't be prouder.

And then it was Mother's day. Jack had to give me the gift he made at school when he got home on Friday because he was just so excited. I love me some homemade presents from my kids.


It was a great weekend. Birthdays are just so much more fun when you get to celebrate with these guys!

Back to regularly scheduled programming - whatever that is!

I just LOVE the photo of you and your boys. They are looking more alike every single day (especially as Jack doesn't have his glasses). Such cute little guys!

Beautiful pictures!!! You guys are stunning :) Happy Birthday and Anniversary . . . and Mother's Day of course!!

And I wanted to say congrats on your run - your marathon post was back when we were dealing with our horrible flu and I totally missed it. I am SO proud of you and think you are just awesome. I'm so going to make sure I do a half marathon one day in the next year or two for sure - you're my inspiration now! Although I'm a couple months older than you so surely I'll be slower - ha ha!!

Happy Birthday, Kami!

Cute picture of you and your boys. I didn't get a picture of me and mine on Mother's Day.

WHY DIDN'T I GET A PICTURE OF ME AND MY BOYS ON MOTHER'S DAY??

I love these pictures, Kami, what a wonderful week of celebrations.

And you're just 35 years young, there's so much ahead for you, beautiful friend. Good things.

And happy anniversary, 10 years is an amazing milestone. Hope you're not "spa'd" out ;).
