An early birthday surprise! :0)


“Peacocking”…doesn’t everyone do it? Yeah well after our 12 mile run on Saturday, we decided we just had to do it, too!  Neither one of us had much sleep the night before, so that didn’t help with our delirium…


See, told you everyone was doing it!! :0)

I was sore all weekend from that darn run, too!  It was hot, humid, muggy, nasty, need I go on…and I was drenched from head to toe by the time it was all over with!  FALL please get here soon!  I’m not going to know what to do with myself in Alaska where I’ll have to bundle up! :0)

Today, we agreed to meet to run a slow 3 miler since we were all still sore from Saturday.  My awesome friends decided to surprise me with a little birthday celebration after our run!  My birthday isn’t until August 27th, but the three of us won’t be together as a group again until after that date….sad times! :0( 


How cute is this card?! It’s totally going up at work!!! :0)

They also got me these amazing cupcakes!


If you live in my town, you know this is the best cake around!!!

My FAVORITE cake is chocolate with whipped peanut butter icing!  I also love strawberry cake with strawberry icing!  Lucky for me, this local bakery makes BOTH!!! Yum!


Group picture! :0)

This is really dumb, but I set the box down on the ground to take this picture and by the time I picked it back up, ants had decided to invade my cupcakes!  We caught them early enough, thankfully – so all was well and no cupcakes were ruined!

I left from our run and began my drive home totally forgetting my poor baby at the groomer!  I was halfway home when I realized!


I’m such a bad puppy mom!  She wasn’t too upset with me though and she gave me lots of kisses to let me know that she forgave me!! :0)

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a great start of your week!! :0)
