Fun For Friday - 5 Things to Smile About

Well Thursday totally got away from me. I had meant to do a post about dark-thirty safety, but I'll do that next week. It's Friday and I like to keep Friday light when possible. I mean, most of us are brain-drained am I right?

Friday can also be a good time to look back on the week, especially on the things that made you smile. Here are 5 things (for Friday of course) that made me smile this week:

1. Unplanned 10-Mile Run

On Sunday, I set out on a run with very low expectations. However, I finally got out of my head and 10-miles later I was in a much better place (and I don't mean sitting at home with my rear on the couch).

2. Quiet Cool Evening

I guess this is technically last week, but it's been nice having cooler temps in the evenings finally. Saturday evening I was home alone, well, except for the crazy maniacs (AKA Maddie and Heath). I loved being able to pull on my fuzzy socks and prop my feet up.


5. Email from Friend

You ever have those days when someone emails you at just the right time? Or maybe it's a call or a text, either way, it kind of makes your day. It's nice feeling like someone is thinking about you, cares about you, misses your company. Thanks Jess!

4. Healthy Bites

I recently won Lindsay's contest for some Healthy Bites and they arrived Thursday. Seriously, the girl is a genius with flavor combinations. I received Pumpkin White Chocolate Coconut Butter and Strawberry Vanilla. One word: YUM


5. Midday Run with Jason

Jason and I don't run together very often any longer. He has dealt with his own running injuries and just sort of got into a running funk. He also doesn't like getting up and running in the early hours. So, it's a rare treat to run together. AND it's been way too hot to run midday anyway. But Wednesday the temps finally felt more like fall, so we headed out for a lunchtime run. Even though the wind was gusting, it was a nice run together.

What's something from this week that's made you smile?
