So April 5th is my DIL's birthday and we love her so I wanted to get the "perfect" gift. Do I get her some spa time to relax, do I get her some "girl clothes", do I get a gift card for a nice dinner out with her DH???? Oh what to get. Then I started thinking about what is important to her. She became a runner and we are very proud of her. She has done 2 marathons and runs on a regular basis. Her mother is very overweight and doesn't support her at all. She is constantly telling her that it is dangerous and she will hurt herself. But she is very responsible and doesn't want the weight problem her mother has that she might inherit. So she took up running. I think she is doing awesome and is being a good example for her two children which I love! Especially since the granddaughter has a tendency to be a bit "chunky". So I researched things that had to do with running and got her a runner's jacket that got good reviews and running tights that also got good reviews. I mean everyone likes a new outfit for your chosen exercise. I think this will let her know how much I support her and her efforts running and staying in shape. I do hope she likes them.
On another note, was surprised at the scale today as it said 107....wow, talk about having some cushion pounds for a treat!!! We are going out with friends on Saturday so I will be ready to chow down.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing just great.
Have a terrific day.
