Speaking of Friday, got any plans for the weekend? Huh? Huh? Well, I DO!!! My husband and I are having a DATE NIGHT!!! We haven’t had one of these date night thaaangs in a loooong, LONG TIME, so yep, I’m pretty excited!! Can ya tell?! Huh? Huh? Can ya?!

Alright, I’ll simmer down now (well, maybe), but to be honest…I don’t wanna and ya can’t make me because I’m in a GREAT MOOD!! Let me put it to you this way, If I were wearing a mood ring RIGHT NOW, it would be allll sparkly and purple(y) because (yes, you guessed it) I’M IN A HAP, HAP, HAPPY MOOD!!! Give the girl a prize…she’s on fire!! Hehe!! Okay, I’ll really put a lid on it now because if I don’t, you’ll probably be exiting stage left (or right)…right off of my blog!!

(Please don’t leave! I’m sooorry!!)

I guess you’re (probably) wondering why I’m foaming at the mouth with enthusiasm and excitement, right?! Well, if not…WONDER…WONDER AWAY KIDS!!!

This afternoon, I reunited with a close friend from high school, Jessica, and it was magnificent to see her again and to meet her gorgeous (yes, GORGEOUS) daughter + her soon to be (second) little bundle of joy! Oh, I tell ya, fun times we had in high school! FUN TIMES!! What a beautiful mommy of (almost) two!! It was SO FUN to eat lunch with them and to reminisce about “old times.” Ahhhh, my heart is filled with SO MUCH LOVE, I’m afraid it might just burst into a thousand little hearts!! Ohhhh boooy, I LOVE looooove!!!

Freshman year: Jessica (from today), Jessica, and ME! I had lots of friends named Jessica…weird?

{MOVING ON!}

Well, now that you know how MY afternoon went, HOW WAS YOURS?! Care ta share?

Oh, OH, wait (don’t leave yet), I forgot to mention THE BEST part of my morning!! MY 8 MILE RUN!!! Yep, I ran 8 miles this morning at The Yorktown Battlefields and it was…Hard? Hilly? Windy? Sweaty? Fun? Yes, yes, yes, yes, aaaand…YES!!

    Your mood is infectious. Sounds like an awesome day. It was super windy here today. I have been trying to limit my runs to 5 miles max with a possible long run on the weekends. It is funny to think that 5 is just a short run but it makes my day seem so much more open. Awesome day teaching classes with little athletes. Can’t complain πŸ™‚

    Nice job on the run! The weather looks like it’ll be wet, so no fun outdoor plans, but I am meeting up with some friends I haven’t seen in a long time over brunch. Catching up with old friends is the best! Have an awesome date night!

      Aww, thanks SO MUCH!!! It ended up strange how I almost did negative splits. My workout was 2 miles warm-up, 4 miles @ 7:30, 2 miles warm-down! I really wasn’t trying to! Haha!
