I love surprises. They are fun, exciting, and romantic! Today has been a rough day. Brad has been out of town for two weeks and it is starting to wear on me a little. I am stressed, tired, and I miss my husband! This morning I was an emotional wreck. I was crying over every little thing that was going wrong and when you have two kids a lot of little things go wrong. Poor little Jason kept telling me "be happy Mommy!" then he would give multiple kisses and told me at least 20 times he loved me. All of that was so nice and made me cry even more. Then there was a knock on the door. I was expecting me new running shoes so I was pretty excited to answer and check them out. When I opened the door there was a package but it didn't look like my shoes. So I went inside and opened the box to find these beautiful calla lilies with a sweet little note from Bradley! It was the best surprise at the perfect time. I definitely needed something like that to let me know I was doing a good job and that he misses me as much as I miss him! I am so lucky to have an amazing husband that I love more and more every single day we are married. I am so glad we have forever together!

26.2 miles

So it is official! I am now signed up to a run a marathon in October. I am not sure how I really feel about it yet. When I start to think about it I get really excited and a little nervous (I think it is good to be a little nervous) and then I start to freak out quite a bit. I think about how I am only running 3 miles at a time right now and how some days that feels hard and I am supposed to run 26 miles in just 6 months. So I decided this morning I need some kind of boost and I thought maybe a new pair of running shoes would do that trick. Mine are starting to get worn mostly because I have had them for a couple of years now. I have heard Asics and Mizuno are two really good brands so I have been looking and I found a pair of Asics I like a lot. They have really good reviews and on top of good reviews they are 140 dollar pair of shoes....yeah I bought them for 89 dollars!! boo yah!
