March has been one big celebration month!! We literally had 7 birthdays in our families this month! Which means 7 giant family gatherings, with amazing people and CAKE ,,wonderful celebration dinners,,and CAKE ,,3 long weekends out of town,,and did I mention CAKE ???
It kind of reminds me of Christmas time,,your all excited to have the treats you only eat about once a year. But by the end of December I'm just over it!! So March has been a month like that for me,,,so bring on APRIL!!
I'm over the CAKE and ready to get SPARKED UP!!
Who's with me??!!

Well, my husband & family have helped take the "sting" out of turning 50!! ha ha As my husband so lovingly put it..." wow your a half a century old!!" I think I prefer 5 decades?? Or maybe 2 score and ten?? However you put it,,it remains what it is...age has never really bothered me, it's a state of mind as far as I'm concerned. We were able to get away for a long weekend,,shop,,relax and of course eat amazing food!! We've also got a couple more trips planned,,one to a hot springs for "spa weekend" whoo hoo for pampering!!
I did set out 6 months ago with some goals to try and reach by my March 9th birthday ....
wanted to lose 30lbs~~ I lost 11.5 lbs!
finish C25k~~ done!!
work on C210K (a 12 week program)~~ I'm on week 7!!
Journal everything to help my grieving process over losing my mom...~~this has helped tremendously!!
And try and find something positive before 8:00am~~ surprisingly, most days this can be accomplished!!
So moving forward into my next "half a century" I will keep doing what I'm doing, striving to hit my goals and remember "this is life, don't miss it!!"

Instead of getting down about all this snow, we decided to take a drive to a friends cabin. I am so glad we got out and enjoyed the day,,it was like National Geographic!! ha ha We saw these 2 bald eagles, ( rarely see two together!) and 1 golden eagle. Also saw these wild turkeys roosting in the trees! I mean come on, who knew turkeys did that!?? I sure didn't! This picture doesn't do it justice, there were close to 100 of them!
We also watched a huge herd of elk in the foothills and of course lots of deer. Well worth the drive. To top it off I let myself have a treat,,a nice hot latte!!

This is my 2nd entry regarding something special/positive before 8:00am,,I've got some wonderful comments to my first blog, so I was thinking it would be fun for EVERYONE to add a comment to this blog with their OWN special or positive moment before 8:00 am....
Here's mine for today: The snow!! Woke up to the ground covered with the white stuff & all foggy looking outside. The snow was coming down in big, fluffy flakes. It was so quiet and peaceful. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL

I'm trying to work on the positives in my life...counting my blessings...being thankful for everything!! So I came up with the idea of seeing something special or positive everyday before I get to work!! No matter how big or small.. ( I'm telling myself it can happen,,those moments are out there, just have to look for them!! )
So for my first day: The truck next to me at the light had a German Shepherd puppy looking out the window. Doesn't seem like much but it was a long hair shepherd that looked exactly like our Grizzy when he was a puppy! He's been gone 2 years now, but seeing that puppy brought a smile to my face and warmed my heart with memories :)
