Well, I had a fabulous birthday.

Kyle sent down a package to my sister that included several life-size cut-outs of Kyle's face taped to popsicle sticks. Random friends were supposed to hold them in front of their faces, read the "script" on the back, and hand me a present from Kyle. My favorite thing that I received from "him" was a dinosaur sandwich cutter. It cuts two identical brontosaurus's (brontosauri?) into your pb and j. I've used it several times already. Kyle used it on a pbj in the kitchen yesterday and I was laughing HYSTERICALLY at those little dinosaurs. Chuck exclaimed about what a waste of money it was and Kyle said, "But look how happy it makes her!" It's true.

I also went out to a delicious and fun dinner with all of my parents. And I spent some time around Chicago- including Fleet Feet where I got fitted for new running shoes. It was so cool, how they do that. And I ran the Nike Women's 10k on Sunday morning, which was so fun. AND I didn't walk at all, which makes 6.2 miles the longest I have ever run without walking. Pretty cool, huh?

I had a BLAST- it was probably my favorite birthday so far. Pictures are forthcoming. I just keep forgetting to bring my camera to the office.

I ran TWELVE MILES today. And my knees are really paying for it. Ouch.

Our dear friends Nikki, Ryan, and Leah should be here very soon- so I've got to dash!


  1. I love Kyle...he could give lessons on how to make a girl happy on her birthday!
    Keep on runnin' rock.

  2. I wish I had been there for your race. Have a fun day! BTW - We love our double heart sandwich cutter. I am guessing giving-gifts is not Chuck's love language :)
