Your Mom...

Somethin' for the Kiddies....

Sunday, May 11, 2008


This was another exciting week at our house with a few lovely events...and due to the fact that it is Sunday night and I am awaiting my husband's rub-down of "Icy Hot" on my aching legs, I have to make this quick with pics (I know...creepy TMI....).

First...the race! It was a major success! It exceeded expectations in every way...great weather, well-prepared, no major aches or pains, and the adrenaline boost you get from runinng with 14,000 other people. I would write more, but I feel my running partner, Stephanie, really did it justice with her recap of the day and hilarity that ensued during the race. The only thing I want to add is that, at about mile 13, someone was busting out "Whoomp, There it Is!" on their ghetto-blaster and it was all I could do to stay contained and not bust out the running man and/or cabbage patch at that moment. I was so concerned I would waste energy I needed to get through the next 2.5 miles...I held back. It was so hard not to get my jam on right then and there!!

Earlier in the week, Lucy performed in an adorable "spring musical" at her preschool. Look at the little girl in her daisy dress...killin me...

Also, I forget to mention last week I got my's quite a bit shorter and I am highly enjoying...check out my large and happy face!

And lastly, Mother's Day! What a nice, fun and relaxing day it has been. A breakfast with family and lazy morning, solo shopping in the afternoon and swimming with the kids tonight...just perfect. My mom and dad gave me the coolest's a Hummel that my mom found, and it looks exactly like Lucy and Tommy - all the way down to the hairstyles! Mother's Day rules!

And hello, Lucy's daisy dress... adorable. I'm dieing. Is that from Boden? I almost bought my neice one from there something like that but with a pear on it. haha!

Lastly, the hair. Soo cute. I love it. And it makes me want to chop mine all off again. Love it!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hummels. My Grandma used to collect those. How sweet!

Love the daisy dress. I can NOT wait for Casey to start the preschool stuff like that.
