30 Days of Thanks!

Looks like I got a bit behind on my 30 days of Thanks! Time to catch up! :)

Day 5:
I am Thankful for my parents! I am so blessed to have the Mom and Dad I have! I was blessed to be able to have a stay at home  mom that was very active in my  life. I also had a wonderful Father who  was always there to support me in everything I did. I was very active in Band (yes, I was the biggest band nerd you could find, lol) and they both were there for every competition & football game. They went above and beyond helping, They weren't just there to watch, they did almost everything to help! My dad built things and worked booths and my mom cooked and did TONS of decorating! I loved every minute having them there. My mom and dad paid for and did almost everything for my wedding. It was a fabulous wedding and I don't think it could have been any better without them making it happen! These are only the smallest of things my parents have done for me over the years. Since I have been married, my mom and I made weekly trips to the grocery store, and now that I live 6 hours away, she sends me packages of goodies in the mail. My dad would always come to my rescue when I had car issues. :) I'm sure I could go on and on about how wonderful they are, but I guess I should stop. :) I am just so Thankful and blessed to have them in my life. I love you mom and dad! :)

Day 6:
I am thankful for my in-laws! God blessed me with the best in-laws. Cody and I have been together for almost 10 years and in those 10 years I have been welcomed into their family like I was one of their own! I am incredibly lucky! Not only do I get goodies in the mail from my mom, I get goodies in the mail from my mom-in-law as well! When we lived closer, my mom-in-law would always surprise me with little "Happy's". Whether it was a cute notepad, body lotion, or anything else, it was always a very nice surprise! :) My Father-in-law is always looking out for us. He is a "researcher" of sorts. He is always looking for the best of everything for his children. I am so thankful for the new family in my life!



Day 7:

I am Thankful for my puppies! They are teaching me responsibility before I have my own children! They are also teaching me patience every time they pee on the floor, or bark until I want to kill them. HaHa :) They make my life happy. I am never lonely and there is never a dull moment with them around! To bad I had to lose a couple of flip flops from them both. The puppy stage is a killer! I enjoyed having Samson for 4 years before we got She-Ra, but I think She-Ra is a great lil addition to our family! :)


Hope everyone had a great day with the extra hour of sleep! :)
One good thing about having puppies and not children yet, is they don't wake up at a specific time! They would sleep all day if they could! :)
So I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep this morning! :)

Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
