Some moms get flowers, some get lovely blue boxes with sentimental treats inside. Some moms get homemade glass jars with a tealight in the bottom (yup - my grade one-er did just that), some get a poem or breakfast in bed.
My hubby is not a sentimental man ... in fact, yesterday at the Mother's Day lunch we held at our place, some of my sis-in-laws were talking about renewing their vows. My hubby looked at them and said, "I promised God once, why do I have to do it again?"
Such a romantic *rolling eyes*.
BUT when it comes to gift giving, he knows me well. And I got spoiled. Maybe you won't think so - but that's probably why I married him, and you didn't *grin*. He got me a Nike running chip for my runners. The perfect gift for me.
And today ... I ran. 17.14km in 1:36:02.
I am CRAZY excited about that ... I will totally kick the 1/2 marathon in September. And I'm hoping to kick it in less than 2hrs. Looks like that's gonna be possible ...
Ok ... so the chip was a hit - as was the Canucks hockey jersey. He got me a blue one - which are a hot commodity right now ... and it saves me from having to shimmy myself into Mattias' jersey at the next game *grin*. I actually prefer the retro jersey ... but he couldn't find one anywhere ... and I'm just hoping that me getting one of these guarantees me a spot at one of the upcoming playoff games *wink*.
I've also posted some pics of my friend Nicole (and a few of her and I) at my RedHanded Photography blog HERE. Can't believe that we've been back from almost a week already ... seems like a dream.
Hmm ... I think I need to shower *grin*. Seventeen km kinda ... stinks *laughing*.
Have a great one!
