7 Miles and a Birthday

Today I met my bestie at a local park I love, and we walked 7 miles.  I am walking the half marathon with her this year, so that was our long training walk for this week.  It went really well and the weather was great for it.  That park is super hilly, but I figured it's a good way to prepare for the race, because a portion of it is actually through that park.  After I was on my way home, which is about a 25 minute drive, I realized I'd forgotten to get a photo of us.  I will have to remember next week!

I love this time of year when it starts to get cooler and the days are more pleasant.  There is something about leaving the windows open and getting that cool fresh air that I love.  On the interstate driving to the park this morning I noticed that the trees are starting to change.  The way the light hit them was so beautiful.  Fall has always been my favorite time of year. 

Friday was my birthday and I turned 34!  It's so hard to believe I'm that old...not that I think 34 is old at all, I just remember a time when I thought 30 was old, but now that I'm over that hump, I realize I still feel much like I did when I was a teenager.  Sometimes it's odd to think Jeff and I have been together for more than half of our lives.

Jeff took me out to lunch on my birthday since he had to work that evening.  We went to the mall and ate at Red Robin.  I got a free burger since it was my birthday and I'm signed up on their little membership thingy.  I got something called the Burnin' Love burger, and it was SO good.  It's spicy and I've been craving spicy stuff a lot for some reason (no, I'm not pregnant).  :)

I walked around for a bit and went to Ulta to look for a couple nail polishes I saw on you tube that I just really wanted.  They had a couple, but not the one I wanted the most, Autumn.  I also had a coupon for a free lip gloss at Sephora, so I went there.  They were out of them, but game me an eyeliner instead.

My mom, brother and best friend came over in the evening, so that was nice.  My mom got a small round cake and we just ordered some pizza.  I know, healthy right? ;)  I was super surprised when my mom and brother gave me my gift.

I've always wanted one of these.

It's kind of hard to see the details, but there is a kitty charm, my initials, a bird, and the spacers have flowers.

My mom and brother had to work the next day, so they left before it got too late, but Diane stayed and we chatted till pretty late, as we tend to do.

Earlier in the week my inlaws came over and we all went to dinner.  My mother in law's birthday is a few days before mine, so we gave her the gift we got her and spent time together, and it was nice!  Sometimes I feel like we go so long without having people over. 

I had a great birthday and got some really nice gifts, including gift cards to Kohl's and Jeff got me a new purse.

I love animal print.  Can you tell? ;)

I've been working on something I am excited to share, but I will probably have to start another separate blog.  I decided to become a presenter for Younique products, but if you have ads on your blog, you aren't supposed to post to sell it.  So, if I started another blog, I could post about it there.  I hope any of you who are interested in cosmetics or skincare will check it out.  In the meantime, feel free to e-mail me if you're interested.  Follow me on Instagram if you aren't already.  I'll be posting photos there.  I'm singingbird80 there.

Here is a photo of me wearing the 3D mascara.  It's SO awesome!

See how long my lashes are?!

My right eye (your left) has the 3d mascara, and the other a drugstore mascara.

It's shaping up to be a busy week.  We've been working on some stuff around the house, like staining our deck and I need to steam clean our carpets soon, too.
