Three Things Thursday....Best Things

Good morning!!!  Today's Thursday randomness is brought to you my the Healthy Blogger Challenge with Fitness Cheerleader!! 
Question of the day....
What is the best thing that has happened to you this week?
Well the past few days I have been giving little Em lots of extra hugs and cuddles since she has sadly come down with hand foot mouth....which by the way is agony to watch and I'm sure to have!  Through the sickness we have had a good week so far!
1.  Closer than I think....The other day I decided to add up my mileage for the year just for the heck of it.  I was shocked to see that I am less than 200 miles from 1000!!  Considering I have been pregnant all of 2012 this is amazing to me!  I can remember 2 years ago when Mel started the 1000 mile challenge I never thought I could hit 1000 miles!  It's amazing what your body can do that your mind never thought would happen!!
2.  New discoveries....One thing that we loved about our old house was the beach and park just down the street.  I was really bummed to be moving partly because of this.  This week Em and I have been exploring around us and have found two new discoveries....a new beach that we love and a running/bike riding path less than a half mile from our house!  I know over time we will find our niche in our new neighborhood but these new discoveries were great!
3.  Healthy baby and mom...I went for a check-up yesterday for Little Miss #2.  I had had a tough stretch last week where I was feeling really weak and almost passed out one day.  The doctor said it was due to my consistently low blood pressure and most likely everything is just fine...just need to make sure I'm hydrating well during these hot, humid days.  Phew!  Also Little Miss #2 is doing well with a strong heart beat as she is camped out on my right side.  Routine check-ups are a huge blessing...Boring is a blessing with babies!!!

You're turn!!!  Let me celebrate with you!

  1. So happy to hear that #2 is healthy; as are you! I could not agree more with your statement that boring is a blessing with babies. I loved walking out of an appointment with nothing to share aside from the expansion of my belly! Take care these last few weeks.

  2. Boring with babies is a blessing for sure! I think the best thing that has happened to me this week is that with a series of disasters (high centering my dad's boat, being evacuated from our campground due to a massive fire, and my 18 month old son ending the day with 10 stitches in his chin ALL IN THE SAME DAY!) that I was able to still see how lucky we were that none of those events were as bad as they could have been. I was grateful for that.

  5. Boring IS a blessing!

    I loaded my littlest guy onto the bus for his first day of kindergarten this morning. I didn't cry til I got back to the house. That's a win in my book :) (now PLEASE let him have a good day!)

  9. So happy to hear mommy and #2 are healthy! The best thing that happened to me this week is a PR and a pain that turned out not to be an injury that lasted more than a few days!

    Have a great day Nancy!
