Number One – MORE DAYLIGHT!! Yeah yeah yeah, I haaaate losing an hour. Especially because I am an early riser! The morning is MY time! I hate the first few days after springing forward… but once I am used to it? It’s the best. I love leaving work, driving home, and still having the SUN out! The best summer days were in Lubbock. Seriously the sky would still be somewhat blue at 9 pm. It was fantastic. I am really excited about having more sun around, and reeeeally looking forward to it warming up a bit!!!
Number Two – a husband that will eat whatever I put in front of him. This is so amazing, and I really appreciate it. Cooking is relatively new to me – I didn’t start playing around in the kitchen until I started to get healthy a few months before our wedding. I had these three and four ingredient cookbooks and that was about it for me. Can of something soup with some meat and bread… dinner! Once I started paying attention to what I was eating, and cooking healthy meals, I was hooked in the kitchen. I’m really drawn to recipes with strange ingredients and trying new things… and I love that Brandon will eat anything I serve him. There was even one time right after we were married – it was this casserole where it called for a T of this and a T of that for all these spices. T = tablespoon. I kept thinking to myself “they MUST mean teaspoon…” but trusted the recipe (that I found on the internet). I should have trusted my instincts. It was HORRIBLE. Brandon ate it. He is not horrible.
Number Three – The SpaGirl Triathlon. I cannot stress enough how heartbreaking it was to cancel that half marathon. I also cannot stress enough how thrilled and excited I am to be participating in my very first triathlon this Mother’s Day Weekend!!! My Mom and I are going down to San Antonio together and she will be there at the finish line waiting for me! Tri training so far has been mostly fun – even though I have spent more time in the gym than outside. (Biking in the mornings before work just isn’t safe outside in the dark.) I try to keep my runs outside, but it’s been a big change going from Half training to Tri training. I am really, really glad I still have this race to look forward to! (Plus, I love weekend vacations!!!! My mom and I are going to have a BLAST!!!!) Also? I think it’s going to be awesome to tell people I finished a triathlon. AND I promise you that wearing a tri suit makes you feel like SUCH a badass. Seriously. I kind of want to wear it all the time.
