A Beautiful Run + the Perfect Gift
I had a really great birthday – thank you sooo much to everyone who commented, tweeted, instagrammed and facebook’d me for my 29th! I love you guys!
I enjoyed my share of delicious birthday treats including this beautiful chocolate chip milkshake that I split with my mom on Monday night:
^ This beauty was really too good to put into words. Have I ever told you that I love whipped cream? I honestly would have been happy with a cup full of the white fluffy stuff and no ice cream!
I worked off the milkshake Tuesday morning with a gorgeous birthday run before work. Yes, I actually got up early on a weekday to go running. I know it shocked me too!
The sun rises so quickly. When I got to the beach the light was just peeking over the horizon, but by the time I wrapped up my run it was hot as an oven out!
My right knee is still acting up. After texting with my coach we determined it’s probably just my IT band misbehaving. I’m doing all the normal recommended things to get it back in tip top shape!
^ That pic looks a little fuzzy because there was a ton of condensation on my camera lens when I got done with my run on Tuesday. It was soooooo humid out. I much prefer running in the evening when it’s hotter but less humid.
It also takes me a little while to really wake up in the morning. On long runs it’s okay if I’m half asleep during the early miles because I have a long way to go, but on shorter runs I could be half asleep for 3/4ths of the run! haha #ButSeriously
I had a typical day at the office for my birthday…
Afterwards I met Adam for dinner at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. On the way home I had to stop at the pet store to pick up some cans of food for Cecil and when I got home Adam had the best surprise for me!
I walked in the house and on the TV he had “Danny Castellano is my Gynecologist” queued up on Hulu. For those that aren’t familiar, that is an episode of The Mindy Project (my favorite show). It’s not just any episode, it’s my MOST FAVORITE episode of any TV show ever.
Adam had made a little Mindy playlist which included “Danny Castellano is…” along with the “Harry & Sally” and “Harry & Mindy” episodes (duh). We spent the rest of the night watching Mindy and eating sour gummies. *sigh* It was my perfect night.
The first year that Adam and I were dating he got me a pretty ring from Tiffany’s for my birthday. I thought he set the bar really high with that little turquoise box and I wondered if he would ever be able to top that … but he totally nailed it this year.
How Adam knew which episodes of Mindy were my favorite I’ll never know. It’s not like I talk about them or quote them all the time or anything. So weird ;).
Now I am counting down the hours until Friday. After work Adam and I are heading into Miami to see the Miami Dolphins scrimmage…. I’m so excited that FOOTBALL is finally back! Whoo!
Let’s cross our fingers that today goes by quickly!
What is the best/most thoughtful gift you’ve ever received?
Would you rather run when it’s more hot/less humid or more humid/less hot?
