Morning

This is post 399.... Hmmmm.. with all the SUNSHINE going around Bloggy land Tomorrow is going to be a Fun day at Tall Mom. Think Sun and an opportunity to save your eyes and do something for charity.... I know I have peaked your curiosity :) I will be passing out some Sunshine Awards and posting more photos from my Wellness photo shoot. So come back Pretty Please :)



Since I have to leave for my 15 miler with Emily and Zoe I leave you with these quotes from John Wooden. Funny how quotes from a Basketball legend totally apply to life and running.


"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you you can do."


"Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming."

HAPPY SATURDAY!!

We have an Open House to TRY to sell our home today, so send us good selling vibes :)

What do you have planned?

Not much going on here. Hubby is trying to file our taxes and I'm attempting to get the house in order, while the kids play Wii. Exciting, huh?

Emily said she had a great time running with you! She felt you were great running partners and loved the breakfast too. This blogging is a wonderful way to meet people. I feel like she just met up with someone we both know! Pretty cool! And she told me about the "goofy" challenge. I hadn't thought about it but that is what she is doing this weekend.
