Happy Birthday!!
19 pounds and 8 inches since January - that's awesome!
Only thing better than rain while the sun is shining is running in the rain while the sun is shining on a HOT day.

Happy Birthday. I don't like to cook either. Great job on the 19 pounds lost. Jealous. I would love to lose another 10-15 pounds.

Candice @ I Have Run said...

Happy, happy birthday!! I need to stop buying chocolate covered raisins. That is what I ate for lunch yesterday. And I love avocados too! And for me, folding laundry is therapeutic. Great list and so fun to read!

Aren't you running Utah Valley this weekend?

Happy Birthday!

Love the random thoughts and I agree with all of them (even though I don't your husband and kids, but I will take your wonderful word for them :)) except the bread thing. I love the smell of baked bread and the taste of a good hearty/health slice.

Love the pix of the Husky. Is that yours? I had one when I was young and a big, fun beautiful black and white Malamute in my 20's.

Keep kickin!
