Happy birthday mom!

It comes on the blog a day late but we’ve been celebrating all weekend! Happy birthday to the most fabulous mom on the planet!

She’s where we get our crazies from and I’m so grateful for all she’s done in my life!

Her putting up with taking a thousand selfies in the parking lot is just another reason I love her.

A fantastic woman like my mom needs a fantastic celebration, and that’s precisely what we did! It involved a little shopping at the mall…

Some time spent watching movies and hanging out. And she was kind enough to repair some pants of mine…

My mom’s giant delicious birthday party spread. I had to eat some of everything.

Chicken, ohmygosh delicious whiskey marinated steak, roasted veggies, veggie risotto, Asian chopped salad, and a twice baked potato.

I’m also partly impressed, party embarrassed that my parents stayed up later with their guests than I could. Everyone was having so much fun the party ended up going until almost 3 in the morning! I called it quits long before then, but my future looks pretty bright if my parents still have it in them to party like that every once in a while 😉

Workout: ran a real slow, over 10 minute mile Sunday to get the kinks out, so to speak.

Sunday my hamstrings were sore and stairs were a bit of a challenge for me, but my Monday, and definitely today, I’m feeling great! I feel like I clearly did a lot of the right things post race to make recovery speedy. I’ll be sure to share it all with you later today!

Question: what were your Memorial Day plans? Who parties harder: you or your parents/kids?
