Five on Friday: I got my husband back, it's racing time, and some theatre!


1. My husband is home!
Kevin has been out of town for work this week and I missed him so much! I'm so glad he's home! K.C. announced to me on the way to school yesterday morning that he wants to have a "Surprise! You're home from your work trip" party for him at Chuck E. Cheese tonight. These boys (all three of them) make me smile!

2. Race seasons begins again tonight.
I'm running a 5K tonight, a half next weekend and have three or four more races I plan to run this fall. It's so much fun!

3. The changing seasons make me so happy!
I love that it's gotten down into the high 50's early, early in the morning. I love summer, but I can't wait for fall. We have a whole list of things we want to do this fall and I can't wait to share them with you!

4. Les Mis was phenomenal!
My mom and I went to see our local community theatre's production of Les Mis one night this week. It was fantastic! I've seen quite a few of their performances, but I was really blown away by the quality of this one. The singing and acting was impressive. I won't pretend that I wasn't really ready for the Revolution to end (it had been a long work day plus soccer and dinner and intermission hadn't even started at 9:15), but other than the slight length (which I knew about anyway), it was great!

5. Exciting things are happening at work!
I don't post about my job or what I really do because I like to keep that totally separate, but there are so many exciting things going on around here! I am so thankful that I have such a fulfilling career that allows me to do something I fall more in love with daily (even if I sometimes want to just take a breather, turn off my phone and shut down my computer) and at the same time, allows me to have the home life I always wanted. That balance is really rare and I'm just really thankful for that today!
