The Reese's egg. Why is it so much better than the regular ones? I think it's because there is a slight bit more peanut butter and no extra chocolate around the edge. I also think the lack of corrugated and sharp edges makes it better. Why have I thought about this enough to write a paragraph? I ate one. I confess. Who else fell victim?
This is my Easter dress. I bought it on Thursday at TJ Maxx. It's a size 10. I will never take for granted the simple pleasure of being able to walk into a store, pick out 20 dresses in a certain size and being able to fit into every single one. Life is so much easier that way. (And more enjoyable!)
You might have noticed--I got my hair chopped off! And yes, I do mean chopped. I didn't realize how long it was until she told me to look at the floor after the first snips. Whoa!! It was longer than my hair has ever been before. I do like it long but realized I had gotten to the point of putting it in a ponytail every day. It was too hard to dry, straighten and keep straight. Not to mention we are heading into another torturous Texas summer. This shoulder-length will be perfect.
These are just a couple of random pics. As you can see, the freckles are coming out!
Anyone who prays go ahead and put me on your list this week. I really need mental and physical strength heading into the big race this weekend! I can't believe it is time for my first half marathon! I know I'm ready. To be honest, I'm a bit shocked that I completed the entire 12 week training plan and didn't decide to quit at some point. I remember going back a forth quite a bit as I was trying to make the decision whether or not to do this and when I was finally ready to commit, this is what I said:
...the answer became perfectly clear to me. It really goes back to what my whole "journey" has been about from the very beginning. Doing the thing that is impossible for me to do. Doing the thing that, when completed, has no plausible explanation other than God.
When I cross the finish line on Sunday God will get His glory! Can't wait! Anybody else doing Heels and Hills?
