Today is the Greatest.

I must be easy to please. But today, so far (and it's only 10 a.m., mind), has been pretty fabulous.

Why?

1) The sun is shining and I'm sipping on a homemade iced coffee.

2) I got out for a run this morning to start out my newest mission (with my friend Melissa) - Couch to 5K. I have done it before, but it was B.C. (before child). Adding a stroller to the mix adds a whole new dimension. Considering I detest running, I felt pretty damn good this morning. And when I say detest, I mean, I used to hide under the bleachers during track practice during the group run. No joke.

3. When I got back from my run, I checked my email and I won this Cedar Plank Grilling Kit from Food Blogga. I can't tell you how excited I am to try grilling with cedar planks. Plus, it's just always fabulous to win things, isn't it? I won these ToeSox from the Sisterhood a few months ago, and I never knew how happy a pair of socks could make me. So, I'm thinking I may be on a roll with the winning. Now my fingers are crossed for this or this. No whammies, no whammies.

I am hoping the day continues on this path. I'm pretty easy to please. I 'd settle for a day when G does not swan dive off of the coffee table (I am seriously looking into a helmet). Or maybe my dogs can refrain from knocking over their water dish and then tracking it all over the house.

And maybe, just maybe, the laundry fairy will show up at my house and fold the three foot pile of clean clothes by the washer.

Cross your fingers for me.

The times that I have won were when I'd been least expecting it. Seems that way, anyway. So, congratulations!!!!! (Addicting, though, isn't it?)

Yay! I'm glad you had a good day! And nice work on the morning run. I'm doing my first day tomorrow at the crack of dawn. I'm excited! Your post reminded me a bit of Ice Cube - "Today I didn't even have to use my AK. I gotta say it was a good day." Sorry, I had to.

Really simple. Old coffee from the morning, poured over ice. A little milk, a little vanilla syrup. Yum. And I have to have a straw. It's a must.
I used to work for the biggest coffee company in the world - any guesses? HA! Thus, I am a little picky on the blend I use. Usually a light/medium bodied blend works best.
