I'm Going to Miss You Guys....and Birthday Loot!

Today was a vacation day for me!  Wahoo I love vacation days.  I started out by going on a three mile run with Jim.  It was really just a recovery run, and it didn't go so great.  I was pretty tired from my week and it was my fourth day in a row of running.  Anyway, I got it done!  Friday is always my "off" day and I am so glad - looking forward to the break.  After my run I ran some errands and got my hair cut and colored.  I love having my hair styled because my hair dresser always styles it straight.  I really love it straight, but I don't straighten it very often because it takes so long.

I'm going to be out of the blogging world for a few days.....I'm going to miss you guys!!  Seriously!  I have become quite addicted to the blogging community.  I hope everyone has a terrific weekend.

Yesterday of course was my Birthday!  I had to work, but my friend MaryBeth took me out to the cheesecake factory.  It was great.  After I got home I went to dinner with Jim, my sister, and our best friends Ken & Cindy.  I got some serious loot for my Birthday!  I sooooo love Birthdays.  Jim got me a cute chocolate brown Lab stuffed animal.  He's so sweet.  I saw it at the grocery store about a month ago and fell in love with him because he looks just like my Jack.  Jim went back and bought him the next day :)  Jack is not a fan!  Jim also bought me a new excited!  I got several gift cards too, so lots of shopping in my future!  OK, lots of Birthday pics to folllow.  Sorry if it's alot of pics of me today...more fun pics to post next week.

  11. Have fun in Boston!!

    We have very similar hair - my favorite thing about getting it cut is that she straightens it. I always say I'll do it, but I rarely take the time...

  12. Happy Birthday! You are beautiful whether your hair is straight or not!

    Have a great weekend!

  13. Happy Belated Birthday Michael.

    Your hot looks really good. That darn Jim is one lucky guy.

    I know that you guys are in Boston now. Hope the game was great. Fenway is the top of my bucket list. Maybe next year.

  14. Happy belated birthday! Sorry I missed it! : )
