Does It Get Any Better?

Yesterday was an amazing day. In the morning, Doug went for a run as I was directed to sleep in and run Sunday (which is exactly what I did). Shortly after he left, I got up and started cleaning the house and getting things prepared for my graduation party. With the windows open...the sun...shining. The sky...blue. Temperatures...in the mid 60's...it was already a beautiful day. I knew it would be a busy day and probably wouldn't have time to take Molly for a walk. So when I spotted the neighbor dog outside, I went to ask if he could come over for a play date with Mols. OMG! What fun. I laughed at those two all day. For a while, it sounded as if I had invited Michael Vick over. They growled, grunted and body slammed each other. I was afraid the neighbors might call animal control! Take a look at these and you'll see how funny:

Come On...You and Me. Another Round.

Cheese! Did you say cheese?

Isn't this the funniest picture EVER??

Big Man Snoring the Afternoon Away.

We finally sent Harley home after he was exhausted and we had laughed ourselves silly over his loud, old man snoring. Then we took a short nap ourselves before the big party.

I just want to say, I have the best family and friends ever! I love them all so much and they mean the world to me. It was a great party with great drinks, way too much to eat and great conversation. The night flew by and the party was over before I knew it. I didn't want it to end and actually made Karen stay a bit longer than she planned. As I hit the sack, I thanked God for having such amazing people in my life. I am so lucky. Here are just a few pics...there were too many good ones...I couldn't post them all...

Our roses from last week's Lincoln Marathon accompanied with some of the neighbor's flowers.

Enjoying the beautiful evening.

Me and Mom.
Sunday morning started with a short run before packing up some graduation cake to take to mom's so we could partake in coffee and cake (with mega icing) for breakfast. It was yummo! Then it was movie time where I, of course, fell asleep. Happy Mother's Day Mom. And to all of those great moms out there...Happy Mother's Day to you too!
