10 Things that make me happy...

  1. That my uncle is doing much better! Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. During a time when things didn't look so great, it was good to know that people were keeping my family in their thoughts! Looks like he'll make a full recovery, although it's going to be a long road ahead. :)
  2. It's race weekend!!! WOOT WOOT! I'm so excited to finally kick off my triathlon season. I'm kicking around the idea of signing up for the Women's Only Tri on Saturday, but I'm definitely registered for the Wendy's Tri on Sunday. Should be a good race with lots of speedy women which is always fun! Should I do two days in a row of all out racing???
  3. The pizza I just ate... there, I said it. It was a California Pizza Kitchen White Pizza from the frozen food aisle at Kroger. Probably one of my favorites.
  4. And while I'm at the food portion of this post... my addition to diet coke. I know it's a horrible substance, but it's sooooo good! (hey, I could be addicted to worse things right?)
  5. Finding little notes around the house that my hubby left me. He'll be gone for 10 days so after sobbing like a baby this morning when I left him, the notes have definitely brightened by day.
  6. Knowing that Team Type 1 is starting the Race Across America on Saturday afternoon. Seems like RAAM just happened, but it's already been a year. I'll start my updated on the team and the race on Saturday. :)
  7. Booking a little trip away with the hubster for when he gets home (sure he's working at the conference, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the lazy river at the hotel). And who knows, we might get to hit Disney for a day!!!
  8. Doing my first open water swim of the season this week. I know... I have an Ironman in 3 months and I'm just now doing an open water swim. To my defense, I need to limit my exposure to the water. The proof is in this picture, which I snapped as I was entering the parking lot to the lake. And it's where my tri is this weekend. I love Ohio!
  9. Getting an email that my 288 marathon bars on being shipped shortly. If you are on facebook, become a fan (http://www.facebook.com/#!/MarathonBars). If you'd like a sample, just let me know! :)
  10. That it's almost Friday. Technically I only have 30 minutes until it's Friday. :)

What are some things that make you happy???

Yay..I'm so glad your uncle is doing better! :)

Good luck this weekend! You are going to do great!

That's so sweet that your husband left you little notes. My husband does that sometimes too and it totally makes my day! :)

Let's see, some things that make me happy: getting flowers from my husband just because, when my boys hug me and tell me they love me, having an awesome bike ride with no wind, and days when I feel fast like a fish when I swim.

Those are wonderful reasons to be happy. Good luck this weekend at your tris!

Rebecca said...

I will see you there on Sunday. Well we may not "see" each other but we will both be there :) racing our hearts out.
That was sweet that your husband left you notes, i do that for Steve in his lunch box for work and he often comes back with one for me. :)

Things that make me happy: when my boys hug and kiss me, watching them learn new things, crossing the finish line, baking...

Happy to hear your uncle is better!

No joke, I had a dream last night that I was drinking a pepsi over ice...I love that stuff but never drink it.

Good luck in your race!
