Birthday Fun & An Outdoor Run

Happy Wednesday!

Today is a special day because it is someone’s birthday who is VERY special to me. Someone who is by my side through good times and bad, who supports me, loves me, who encourages me to follow my heart, and someone who I love more and more every day. Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband, Dana!

You are as studly now as you were back then…

I couldn’t resist.


The weather yesterday was absolutely beautiful! I went out for a run after work and my car thermometer said 60º! I was out running in shorts and a long sleeve. It was a little messy but totally worth it. You can’t get views like this on the treadmill.

I am also 90% sure I spotted an eagle! I’ll spare you the picture of a little speckle of an eagle in the sky. At least I can say I tried to capture the moment. I tracked about 3.5 miles and for once in a long time, I wanted to keep running, but needed to stop due to time.

Bring it on Spring. I am so ready for you.

For dinner, we headed to Dana’s parents place to celebrate his mom’s birthday which was yesterday and Dana’s birthday which is of course, today. We snacked on crackers and cheese as an appetizer while we chatted and caught up on a few things. Then came dinner which was bacon-wrapped steak, baked potatoes, and a mixed salad. I ended up eating everything except for half of the steak, it was a big guy! 🙂 Check out the pretty plate!

After dinner Sue served up a healthy and refreshing fruit bowl with raspberries, strawberries, kiwi, and blueberries and topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt. Yum!

Everything was very delicious! Thank you for a great dinner! Man, we have been spoiled lately with my mom and dad’s dinner on Monday and Dana’s parent’s dinner last night. Food tastes better to me when someone else cooks it, and I know I’m not alone on that one. Very great company as well!

Off to work I go. I have a nice dinner planned for tonight per Dana’s request! Have a great day.

Did anyone else enjoy an outdoor run yesterday? What is your favorite part about running outside?
