I have always LOVED turquoise! I now love pink and turquoise together. Laila painted this birdhouse that Brad made her. Originally we were going to put it outside her window but we decided it would be cute hanging up in her room. Now we just need a lil birdie :)

Happy Mother's Day to me!

Brad made me breakfast and the kids brought it to me in bed. I think this is what I look forward to the most on mother's day. I had been hinting for years now about a ring that I want and even blogged on it after Lydia was born. Yesterday Brad told me that is my gift but that I needed to order it. So finally yay I get my ring. I am really excited and can't wait to see what it looks like on:) It sounds like I could be waiting up to a month though:(

Here it is..with my kids names of course.

I have been working on getting back into running since about last july. As soon as I start to feel like I am getting stronger I start to feel that little twinge of pain in my shins. I run through the pain for about 2 weeks until I can not walk without cringing. After this stage I lay off running for a couple weeks until the pain goes away and then start back up again. This has been my life for almost a year now. It is annoying when you finally want to run and can't. Well....the last couple months have been painless up until last weekend. I started to feel that twinge in the shins and now I am running through the pain. I really don't want to have to stop yet again. I have reasearched why people get shin splints and have yet to figure out my specific problem. I have been a runner almost my whole life with a 5 year furlow in there and never had shin problems....Here's to icing and ibuprofen and hoping I break the cycle soon!!

I am only posting this on my blog because I am just so frusterated and need to get it out without starting a facebook debate. I am sooo tired of reading about how Obama deserves no credit for OBL's death and how it's an american victory. What a slap in the face. The people who claim to be the most patriotic are the ones who are bashing our president which is like the most unpatriotic thing you could do. Some of these same people are the ones who got heated when there was talk of soldiers losing their pay for awhile. How can people say that it was all Obama's fault and then weeks later say he had nothing to do with Osama's death. I don't like talking politics in general because I usually have a different opinion than most of my friends so the last few days have been so frusterating on facebook. I think I may just stay away for a few days.
