29 for the First Time


Today is a very special day. Not just because it’s national running day (more on that later) My husband, Bobby, turns 29 today!!! I told him to enjoy his last birthday in his 20’s (speaking of which…when did we get so old? Weren’t we just in college? Weren’t we just newlyweds? Sigh.) At any rate, it’s his special day! Unfortunately he will be at work all day….and then again tomorrow evening. Major bummer. Only upside is now I can go to yoga! We celebrated with my parents over the weekend, and will celebrate more I am sure. (Can you tell we really like to celebrate special occasions?)


My parents and I surprised him with a cake, hence the goofy look on his face. He went upstairs to do something, so we pulled out the cake, lit the candles, and told him to come downstairs. I’m very very sneaky. He underestimates my sneakiness.



He is a big fan of Star Wars, but was not amused when I pulled out the Star Wars plates and napkins I had bought.


So, apparently the lady at the cake shop thought my mom said the cake needed to say “Happy Birthday mommy” so they had to wipe it off and change it. I told her she should have let them leave it haha!


Last year, I was not with Bobby on his birthday, I was in California, so I am glad I get to celebrate with him this year! Happy birthday Bobby! I love you so much and am so glad I get to celebrate with you!


As I stated earlier, today is also National Running Day. I hope you will get out and run, even if it’s just a mile!


Be sure to check out the Website, there is some great info on there. One of the things on the site asks you WHY you run. So, here are my answers:

-I run to be healthy for my family so I can be around a long time

-I run as a stress relief and to be alone with my thoughts

-I run because it’s fun

-I run because I love having goals and competing with myself.

QOTD: Why do YOU run? Ok, now get out there and DO IT! Are you running today?

    Happy Birthday to your hubby. Kind of funny on the cake. My sister made one for her son’s 1st birthday and actually mispelled his name 😉 I do run and celebrated today even though it was a non-run day for me. Started my day off just right!

    I run because I love the feeling of accomplishment after and because running is one of the best stress relievers … ever.
