Mother's Day

Jon started off mother's day in a risky way. I woke up with him trying to steal my pillow. I am NOT a morning person....I have been known to hit Jon when he gives me a good bye kiss in the morning. So, I was getting really angry and was about to bite his head off when he successfully got my pillow and replaced it with a new fluffy one. Then I went out to find him making breakfast and doing the dishes on my new waterproof and comfy floor matt. Jon then told me that "I hope you like your gifts, I was very thoughtful". That man cracks me up. He also got me a balloon that said sassy mom, and a I love mom cake.
I can't seem to make this picture rotate, but its cute so just turn your head! These are the beautiful girls who call me mom.

 And this is the man who made me a mom. Love him so much!

Run Sarah, Run!

 Leslie has been trying to turn me into a runner, and so far it's working! We ran a mud run together on April 26th. It was a blast! We got quite muddy, and had some great laughs. I had a graceful fall flat on my back in one mud pit that was priceless. The mud was so great, it even pulled off the soles of my shoes!
 Then this weekend on the 3rd we ran a half marathon! And when I say ran...I mean jogged/walked. I was doing pretty good (keeping up a 14 min mile) till about mile 9. Then I hit a big ugly wall and got a cramp in my leg. I ended up walking the rest of the way. Sweet Leslie never gave up on me and believed in me every step of the way. She didn't leave me, and went as far as walking arm and arm with me for the last mile (which helped ease the pain of my limp!) The experience humbled me and reminded me just how important it is to surround yourself with selfless loving people who will literally be a shoulder to lean on in hard times. I am so blessed by those around me!
