Today I am Thankful for:
(The numbers refer to my journal for the One-Thousand Gifts... in other words, just ignore them)
218 // Y'all already know I love my Wednesday lunch dates with my hubby... but this past Wednesday we took advantage of our Subway points & got both of our lunches for free. 2nd time we've got to do that with our points. That's some serious eating at Subway to rake up enough points for 2 full lunches.
219 // Ricky stopped on his way home to get chew bones for the dogs. Zoe has been coming out & socializing more since its warming up (her poor joints) & she likes to tease the boys when she has a chew bone, so Ricky stopped to make sure his little fur-girl was happy.
221 // The power of a meat-free diet!!!! Y'all... you know I'm passionate about a vegetarian lifestyle but I'm even happier about it after getting some test results back from Ricky. Certain conditions & tests have improved DRASTICALLY & I know its because he has cut out so much red meat in his life. Now, he's not vegetarian, but he has cut it back so much living with me & my meat-free dinners (he'll eat meat for lunch at work) but its obviously made a difference cutting back some. So even if you cant imagine giving up meat totally - just cut it back. For animals sake... for your own health.
222 // New running shirt! I have ran the Triple Crown here in town for the past 7 years & never have I seen a Triple Crown running shirt. This year, they have some really cute designs. I was so torn on which one to get, but ended up getting this one just because it has the total miles for the 3 races. Being a numbers girl, I of course had to go with it.
224 // The rain held off for the 10k race on Saturday!! ... its so funny because when I was at packet pickup, the guy asked me if I was ready for the race & I said, "I'm just praying the rain holds off" - he said, "Yeah, I never knew runners were such praying people. I've heard more people say that today.".. & then he said, "If anyone up there is listening, I guess we'll find out tomorrow"... in my head, I was like, God, please show this guy you aren't an "IF"! ... & then it didn't rain. All I kept thinking about was that guy & wondering if he took note that all those prayers were indeed heard :)a
225 // So happy about my time at the 10k
227 // Sitting outside to do my Bible Study. There's just something about nature that makes me connect more with God. I loved having my Bible open with the sun on my face.
228 // Impromptu game night with friends.
229 // Emerson loves her Pappy. She just laughs at him & plays with him. When she yells for him & says "PAPPY" it just makes my heart smile.
231 // Our full gang showed up to Bible Study this time around. It was great seeing everyone & just being together.
233 // As much as I hate loosing an hour of sleep, I SOOOOOO love more sunlight at the end of the day!!
234 // Swiffer mops on a rainy day with muddy dog feet.
235 // Got 6 cases of sparkling seltzer water. Let me tell you, this stuff is like GOLD around here. Its so hard to find at the grocery so I went to a grocery by my work at lunch & they had some. I bought every carton they had!!! That should last me.... a few weeks...
236 // Hair Day! ... I love when my hair is so straight. I just wish I knew how to do it myself. #notpossible
237 // Free Weight Bench. This could NOT have come at a better time. I'm planning on starting a new workout program after this half marathon & it focuses on weight training. The plan calls for a weight bench, but you can make do with other things, which I was planning on doing. AND THEN.... Amazon sent me a thing asking if I wanted to review ---- guess ---- a weight bench! A perfect size one too for me ... & for this program. YES YES YES YES & YES!
So what good things have been happening in your life this week?
