Thank you all so much for the sweet birthday wishes. I have been so busy this weekend, like non-stop, I was only able to get online a few moments at a time and only on my cell phone!
It was really good though, starting the day my sister and I went to a fundraiser race- for aid in Burma. Its a 5k race, which my friend and I had been training for. However we were almost there and I realized I had forgotten my running shoes. Since I was planning on being out all day I grabbed my clothes and my flip-flops planning on putting my shoes on in the car, but then forgot them altogether! Lucky for me however, in this race they actually have a flip-flop division. The idea being that in Burma hundreds of villagers have no choice but to run and often in the cheap rubber flipflops.
I didn't really get to run much of the way- its super hard in flipflops and my shins have been in bad shape, they may be splinting. But it worked out alright. Loads of people go to just walk and there's children and mom's pushing strollers.
Anyhow it was a nice way to start the day. Then I meant my husband and kiddo for breakfast, went shopping with my sis, then my friends had a little party for me where we did some crafts that we found on Pinterest. And then I had a really nice dinner out with my husband. It definitely wasn't a day to count calories, but it was really great!
I just have to say that over the last year I have really changed. A year ago you could not have paid me to get up and go walk a 5k, let alone willing to choose to go do it, let alone on my birthday! You guys have been a part of that for me- a huge encouragement
(hehe). But for reals, when I was at my worse you all helped me through that. Its exciting to be able to look back and to see change and growth.
