Being a Mother is the greatest gift....

Oh it's hard many a days - but what a blessing - what a joy.  When you can laugh and play with your kiddoes - it makes all those tough moments so totally worth it.
Yesterday was a low key - but perfect - Mother's Day.  I woke up to my McDreamy making us all breakfast (coffee already made like it is every day).  And we ALL ate a super yummy breakfast of Breakfast Burritos, together.  Thanks honey!!   Got a few of my favorites and he even wrote some sweet words for me (not a poem or a song - just a little sentiment he has been telling me since high school).
We (all but X-man) even played a little Spit which is always great fun.   

So I thank my main man for spoiling me - for loving me - for putting up with me - and for the gift we share - our children. 
I love YOU all around the world!  :)

I thank my kiddoes for (mostly) getting along - and for (mostly) sticking around for the day so we could spend (most of) it together!  I love you three more than you know!

Action Sports International

Not the most awesome photos - but proof that I finished my second 1/2 marathon this past Sunday (May 2nd). My official chip time was 2 hours 52 minutes and 26 seconds! I didn't prepare NEARLY enough for this run - like I hadn't ran in over a month and then I went out and ran a half marathon. I was able to run the first 11 miles and then had to walk/run the last 2 miles. But hey I finished - and I ran a lot more than I thought I would be able to. I have been pretty stiff - but today was a good day - still not feeling up to running - but give me another week and I should be ok. :)
If you live anywhere around the Lincoln area you really should consider running this run - the crowd support is just phenomenal. I have only ran this course so I don't really know how it compares to others - but it was an awesome first run for me and another awesome 2nd run!!!
Steve ran the full marathon - yeah he is a stud - I think it's just awesome that he is able to run it. His official chip time was 3:56:11. Go Steve!!!
Action Sports International - Me

Action Sports International - Steve

Funny funny funny!

Ok I don't have me a swagger wagon - but if I did I would be singing this song really loudly all the time - so hilarious!!!

I love their commercials - that dad CRACKS me up!

Enjoy this little laugh of the day!
