ten happy things friday


Who doesn't feel happy after they see one of these?

We went to the zoo this week with some extended family and the littlest was so happy despite the heat.

The kids were spoiled by G-Pa (my dad) who bought food to feed the birds and fish. He also bought them popsicles and ice cream.


This is just a happy girl with her popsicle on the train at the zoo. She fell asleep about 10 minutes into the ride.

I like running. I am running over 2 miles at a time now (and I plan to get that up to 5 miles). It has made me feel much better both physically and mentally.


Homemade salsa. It's fresh and addicting and bad for my tortilla chip habit which I had dropped for a whole month until Sunday.

Lime-aide with fresh mint.

Kids that forgive you when you're having a bad mood kind of day.

Vanilla ice cream with peanut butter swirled in. Yum.

something new

Sam, despite her new found independence of crawling, has decided to become a hip-hugger. Over the past two weeks she has grown increasingly fussy and clingy. I think she's starting to teethe. Anyhow, I'm a sucker and can't hear her cry for too long before I pick her up and let her slap me in the face and pinch my cheeks. (She really does that. She grabs faces and pinches.) She's finally taking a nap and I'm finally writing something on the ol' blog.
I wrote that paragraph yesterday... 

Saturday was fun. We met up with some old friends to meet the newest baby in our group of friends, Travis. He is adorable. It was a lot of fun just hanging out and catching up. Then we spoiled the kids with bad food and went to Target so I could use my birthday gift card. I bought new socks and a hat for running. The socks kept my toes happy on my first 20 minute run (no walking). I only have 3 weeks left of my C25K program! I am really happy with my progress and am looking forward to my run tonight.

That's all she wrote. This time.
