"See The sun " - Dido

Today's  post in [mostly] photos.

Very happy about this:

"See The Sun" on Sunday . . . . YAY me!!



Saw this at the Hallmark I frequent:


I received this from MY Mom yesterday.

Yes, Mom it's the little things to me.  They make me happiest.  It is my favorite Christmas gift.

Got these from the Pita yesterday.  I think they enhance the loveliness of the tree, personally.

Yes, we have a shooting and/or falling star.  I.  Give.  Up.

But, hey . . . . I got this early for this Sunday's little trot [ewwww] run [from the Pita]!


You bet cha' Baby!  "RUN EMZ".  I heart this.

I also hearted the email from a company telling me of my "other" Christmas present.  HILARIOUS.  Note to husbands:  If you buy your wife something . . . . make sure they do not have your wife's email on file.

That was the most awesome email I have ever forwarded.  ever.

His reply, "Merry Freaking Christmas!  SUR-PRISE! SUR-PRISE! sur-freaking-prise!"

My wife pays the credit card bill so I have to wait until the month (Dec. 9) closes before I can start Christmas shopping for her. But of course, I am smart like that.

racing dawn said...

Hahaha. It was a surprise when you got the email, right? That should count!

Hopefully I'll finish the race before it hits 80 degrees... :)

Rae said...

I love that ornament! Now I want one!

How funny that you got the email about your present. Love PITA's response. :)

Marlene said...

Snaps to Mom and Pita for AWESOME PERFECT GIFTS!

Jen said...

Love the ornament! What a thoughtful mom! I've only been able to surprise my sweetie twice. Twice in 17 years. And it's not for lack of trying either. I'm excited to see what was in the e-mail!

Happy Feet 26.2 said...

The Pita is super sweet! Too funny about the hubby. I am seriously impressed. He bought you a gift AND it was early. WOW! Extra points for the hubby, even though you received the email. I can ASSURE you, I will NOT be getting such email. :)

Anna Walker said...

Awesome! :)
I love the little goodies that you have been getting! That ornament is so cute though! Good luck with your shooting/falling star!

Laurie said...

Weather looks amazing, you're going to rock that race! That's so funny about the email, my husband can't keep a secret he would've ended up telling me before the email could even reach me. Love the daisies, those are my favorite! Your Pita seems pretty cool and your mom is Awesome! Oh, and if this wasn't already a long enough comment, I could go for peace on earth and really cute shoes too. Okay, I'm done now.

Barefoot Neil Z said...

Hi of 30 here! *wOoT*. Good thing I didn't put the berkenstocks away. (I gotta get them things re-soled for winter, and let out a notch on the straps to allow for wooly socks)

Emz said...

Mooshy - ya. you are like brain surgeon [did I spell that right?] material. we know.

RD - at 9amm it'll be 65 - you're good my speedy friend. ;)

My mom. rocks.

The Pita's engraving on the iPod = tears [happy ones]. seriously. it. IS. the. little. things. with. me.

Slowmo - yes. wear your speedo. lounging my the pool to follow the DECEMBER RACE!

Laurie - i loved your comment all of it. happy me.

Still Running said...

Completely jealous of the weather. Already sick of "wind chill" this season.

Emz said...

Neil - Birkenstocks. OMGosh. How did I forget about those?! Wore those all through my freshman & soph HS years. . . . I'm sure they are way better for my feet than the heels but . . . . I likey my heels. ;)

Stillrunning - don't know how you do it. Just reading "wind chill" sends a chill up my spine.

Big Daddy Diesel said...

LOL!!! Make sure they dont have your wifes email on file!!! That is awesome

abbi said...

Good forecast! Pretty funny about the e-mail with the gift!

JenniferLeah said...

awww LOVE the ornament. SO special :)

Nice one PITA...:P *grin*

Jon said...

I am moving to Tuscon. It is December and THAT is your weather this week?

Is that an engraved iPod mini or Shuffle? awesome!

Tay Talk said...

hahaha- Oh I love men and how they try...really hard at times. So precious.

*High Five* on the sun bein out too! It's been nice here this week so far and it's had been so nice for running!

Slomohusky said...

Ha Ha! I will have to wear the speedos straight to the airport! I have an early flight out after the race. Which will make the TSA full body seach interesting/lively?! ;)

Mandi said...

Hahah, I love his response to you getting the confirmation email!

Also, love the EMZ runner girl! So cute!!

Merry Christmas!!

TRI714 said...

All very cool. I do especially like the star trying to get away.

Emz said...

Slowmo- perfect. Love it.

Jon. No. Joke. Awesome December weather. It's a shuffle. I've wanted one for so long. At $49 a pop - why the wait, right?! ;)

Quinton J said...

Yup…you NEEDED that shuffle. That big ol’ thing that you’ve had strapped to your arm has been weighing you down Big Time. I’m thinking you’ve just knocked 5 minutes off your PB right there. PITA’s like a Big Handsome Super Hero.

Sunday…it’s on.

Goose said...

Your ipod from Peanut...adorable, perfect, and so precious. You've done well.

misszippy said...

Perfect gifts! Love the contrast of the flowers with the tree.

You're gonna rock it this weekend!!

Tara said...

What is that? An IPOD? I want personilized engraving too! That's very cool.

It's supposed to be in the 60's here today...in Colorado. WTH? Love this weather.

Aimee said...

Yays all around! Yay for the flowers! Yay for the ornament! Yay for the shuffle! So awesome! :)

Chloë said...

Oh no! It's so disappointing finding out by accident!

Oh well...at least you got some lovely flowers and an iPod and of course that adorable ornament as a surprise! :]

And that temperature is criminal for December. Oh my goodness. Now in March, I wouldn't mind it so much...

Colleen said...

I'm so incredibly jealous of the weather out there! :(

That ornament is cute! Yay mom...

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I LOVE your personal ornament.

Thought of you while I was at Walmart: a RUN DMC softie, t-shirt was on clearance. I did a double take, thinking it was "RUN EMZ".

Stacie said...

I love the ornament.

So glad you got a new iPod and sunshine for this weekend :)

One of my friends just did the same thing. He ordered a gift for me and had my email listed for some reason. Too cute but I love it.

Melissa Cunningham said...

Julie @ Hotlegs Runner said...

Mom and Pita are very sweet! =) I wonder what my mom and man will get me. I hope they give it to me early too. Haha!

Teamarcia said...

Yay for cool gifts!
I swear we have that same wonky star--does it not sit correctly on anyone's tree?

Johann said...

You have a super mom with that super gift! Wow, your marathon is now here...exciting stuff!

Kate said...

Ok... so what is the OTHER gift? I am dying to know what the email revealed!?

:) I love thoughtful little gifts like those. They mean the most.

Barbie said...

Char said...

Ooops and hahaha to Pita's little email address mistake.

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Mom's rock. And even big girls need them. :-)

Hilarious about the gift... I manage the money here so I always see "interesting" charges when he's trying to buy me a gift. He says I'm the worst surprise spoiler EVER.

Jason said...

same star, same leaning problem. shooting star in our house.

That might be the coolest christmas gift ever. I mean seriously how cool that the whole fam is all EMZ.

Spoke to my mom today and I told her Karen and I ran the marathon on Sunday and she asked AGAIN....
Mom: how far is that?
Me: huh?
Mom: You know how many miles?
Me: 26.2. If you go to Boston it's the same distance, and if you are in Portland they do it at the same distance there to. So weird right?
Mom: You are a PITA!!!!!

Emz said...

Yay for extra pita's running around this country!!

Awesome.

You never know.

Lee said...

Nice ornament and ipod
I'm clearly living in the wrong place temperature wise. Although I do find it harder to run in the heat than the cold.
Looking forward to hearing how things go on Sunday.

Pam said...

Hilarious about the email. That totally sounds like something MY pita would do!

You bought the mug, right? Tell me you bought the mug.

I LOVE the ipod!

Karen R said...

It's so great to be surrounded by such wonderful family that get you things that you will treasure forever!

And I love, love, love the mug! :)
