They came!!!!!

Today my new running shoes came!  Remember?  The ones that I won from Brooks?  They are BEAUTIFUL and SOOOOO comfortable!  Even though my knee has been bugging me, I decided to do a little 2 mile run.  I was GOING to do 3 miles, but then I remembered that I have to do my first 5 mile run on Saturday, I didn't want to jeopardize that run!!  Here they are!!  My new running shoes! 

Aren't they beautiful!  Usually the sneakers I need are so ugly looking!  What a nice surprise!  Know what's even cooler?  Most stores don't even have them yet!  They JUST released on the 1st!  They really are very comfortable!  I am quite pleased that I went a half size up and extra wide.  SO much more comfortable!  My toes didn't hurt at all!  Even though I only did 2 miles, I was BEAT!  It was SO hot in the gym - even right in front of the fan!  Have I ever told you how much I hate the treadmill?  No?  Let me tell you again.  I hate the treadmill.  Here is a sweaty pic to prove that 2 miles kicked my ass tonight!

See - totally beat!  I have to say - my face is really slimming down!   Today I was going through some old pics and I was shocked to see that my face looks thinner than it did when the hubs and I first started dating!!  My body is still bigger, but I think having two kids could account for that!  Check out this pic!  UGH, I wish I still looked that young.  Thank God the hubs decided to shave that mustache.  YIKES!

With those giant glasses and that 'stache - he looks like a cop from the 1970's!  Book em Danno! HA!  Poor Pete - he is lucky I love him so much!  Seriously though - my face looks a lot thinner now - doesn't it?

Ok - it's been a long day - both kids are sick.  My son puked in his car seat so I had to strip it down and wash it - I figured I'd wash them both while I was at it.  YUCK - I hate washing car seat covers.  Someone should invent one that isn't so friggin hard to strip down!  Anyway - since we only have 1 humidifier, we stuck the areobed in my daughter's room and let my son camp out in there.  They both think that is pretty awesome!  The two of them always jump around on the aerobed.  So funny!  I can imagine my brother and I thinking that would have been fun at that age too!

Well, I'm off to shower before I stink up the house!  Thanks for reading!  Have a wonderful night! - Monica
