Flashback Friday- Truly Happy

I have had a TOUGH Week. My schedule is all over the place and things seem to be a bit OUT OF CONTROL.. So today I thought it would be fun to post pictures of days where I was TRULY TRULY Happy... I have a 20 mile run tomorrow, to get ready for Vegas... WISH ME LUCK!!!We went to the beach in April.. It was COLD and WINDY!! Little Stud #2 could barely breathe because of the high winds.. but the sky was beautiful and we were TOGETHER....
I planned a special Birthday for my Best Friend. We hiked to the bottom of Snoqualmie Falls, went shopping and went to dinner on the water. It was a GREAT day!
Muscle Man and I went on an AMAZING trip to Hawaii for my buddies wedding. The kiddos were safe at home with Grandma and Grandpa. We got to really RELAX, it was very much a second honeymoon.
The boys and I went to a beautiful park to take some Fall pictures. One of my favorite pictures was taken this day. It was drizzly and rainy, but all I remember is how peaceful it was to be out with my boys..
Every year we go and pick out our Douglas Fir Christmas Tree. This is Little Stud #1 and I, Little Stud #2 was in my belly almost booked...
It snowed, never snows too much around here. so we all got dressed up, built snowmen, went for a walk and watched cars struggle to get up a steep hill. It was AWESOME!!!

  • There are some great great posts about what people are Thankful for, it would be awesome to see those Thankful posts with some pictures. I LOVE PICTURES!!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Hey wasn't my very favourite show Twin Peaks filmed partly at Snoqualmie Falls? We went there on my honeymoon (early 90s) to scope out filming sites. Best trip ever. And romantic.

very excited for Vegas as well! I'm envious that you're doing a 20 mile run. I'm on taper already and it's boring me half to death =/

great photos, by the way. =)


*Please read my blog post for today. I am shamelessly plugging it coz I REALLY don't want YOU to miss it. Check it out and you'll understand why =)

Good Luck tomorrow on the 20 miler. I am sure you will do great and it will be good to not have to think about your schedule for a few hours anyway. I mentioned you in my blog today. Now that I am done with my marathon, my goal is to complete my 1200 miles in 2010. I'm excited to be doing this with you.

Terri said...

That looks like such fun! Love the photos!

Janice {Run Far} said...

aww, great post. I need to do something like this. I have been really down in the dumps lately.

Julie D. said...

what great pictures. You know, I want to write something close to the idea that 'I understand'--but I really don't. The loss of your dad, will be a process of grieving that only you will know. What a great way to grieve...looking at the happy times. praying for you.
