I am . . .

. . . . thankful for my niece Emma today.  Happy 10th Birthday!
. . . . grateful Peanut gets moments like this with the Pita.

 . . . most "worry free" when I'm doing this:

not racing . . . just running. 

 . . . . Happy my friend is home from her 3 week vacation.
. . . . Happy I get to have lunch with "happy" today.
. . . . thrilled Peanut is [finally] loving volleyball.

. . . . a woman who has been challenged beyond what I thought I was capable of handling.  I may be a little stronger than I thought after all. ;)
. . . . always more content after I've had my morning chat/visit with Peanut.

. . . . happy that I have brother & sisters.
. . . . sad that Peanut doesn't.
. . . . Blessed to have my Peanut.
. . . . getting a [super] sweet arm band from "Q".  awesome.  I'm sending him Rhubarb pie.  Pretty sure he's getting the raw end of that deal.
. . . . stoked that I won/was right [as usual] ; ) and that the Pita lost the bet and had to bring in all the Costco carts, in two rows which equaled 3 trips . . . . looking like he was an employee [minus the sweet beeping mechanical machine]

. . . . happy he doesn't read my blog.
. . . . hoping my pace partner for my Top of Utah Marathon doesn't back out on me!!  Come on W!  Crank it up!
 . . . . loving my new kicks


I'm sure [sarc-mark] they'll do great things for my running form and core.

Happy Hump Day.  I love Wednesday's.

Oh, Emz. I totally love your new shoes. Where did you find them? Cause I think I should have a pair that I can stare at and dream of wearing once my Half is over in November.

Happy Hump Day! Run on.

Teresa said...

First of all, those are fabulous shoes. I love, love, love shoes and am currently wearing a pair of six inch heels myself so that picture was like porn LOL Secondly, those photos of your daughter with your husband and you are absolutely precious! I'm happy you have lots to be happy about. Have a great day!

Marlene said...

I don;t know how you wear those shoes! I would die!!

Have a great day!

Allie said...

I love those shoes. I have so many awesome shoes that I never get to wear anymore, maybe I should start vacuuming in heels?

ShutUpandRun said...

Can I borrow those shoes for when I run and have to fend off attackers? Seriously, I bet you look crazy HOT in those. Not hitting on you, just sayin'.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

I am loving this

Petraruns said...

the shoes are FIERCE! Thank you for putting it all out there sweet Emz!

Jamie said...

I'm looking for some new shoes and your shoes are making me jealous! It makes me happy that you're happy for everything you have. :)

Jamoosh said...

1-Damn girl; check out those abs; impressive.

2-Are those shoes for a "Pimp and Ho" party?

Emz said...

Jamoosh - you are dead to me. I'm calling Lady J. Send me your credit card.

Heather said...

OMG! those shoes hurt my feet just looking at them! how in the world do you walk in those? and then run?

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

I would break my ankles! And then be not very happpy. But hubbs would love it if I just put them on and stood still. ;-)

I love the shopping cart bet!

Thanks for the prayers. I'll expain it all tomorrow/soon.

Chloë said...

I was ten when my little brother was born, and there was no other siblings in between us. Just saying. :]

Caratunk Girl said...

Aww, love this post.

AND if it makes you feel better - I am an only child with lots of great adopted brothers and sisters (friends) who would cross the ocean for me. Peanut will have the same.

Anne said...

Loved this post and your last one too. You are great at writing these touching posts :)

Sexy shoes! :)

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Those shoes are completely fantastic! So many things to be happy for here...including tomorrow's thursday!!

your daughter is a gem!

Angie said...

Oooo- wear them to church and know that, somewhere, in a sacrament meeting far away, I am smiling. Also, mailed your package today.

The Non Race Runner said...

I love the Costco cart win! Score one for mom, although I'm pretty sure with you and those shoes your Pita would do just about anything for you? Good work :)

MCM Mama said...

I was going to say something about how wonderful this post was, but then I saw the shoes and OMG I can think of nothing else. I want! ;o) But yeah, shoes like that totally screw with my running.

Syl said...

shoes, happy and running, sounds to me like the perfect mix ;-)

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

#1 You are super strong as the past three months have shown, so you are stronger than you think you are and I am still so proud of you!
#2 I love that you found ANOTHER opportunity to showcase your abs.
#3 Like you need a pace person helper. I don't know anyone who can keep up with you.
#4 Peanut.
#5 Am I the one back from a 3 week vacation? Because to me, it feels like I was gone for 3 days and someone turned the heat up 20 degrees.

Jeri said...

uh how cute are those shoes? But seriously won't that make you 12 feet tall? not fair. :)

Cathy said...

Love your posts! It's my first time visiting your blog - I really enjoyed it! And by the way, what do you do to get such great abs?
