Hello Monday: Mother’s Day Edition

Hello Monday!

Hello loud birds chirping at 5:15am.

I think the birds knew that it was time to wake-up and run. My alarm was set for 5:20am. Ye gads, what was I thinking.

So this running thing, it is not fun running as it gets warmer. So my choices are 1. get up early and run before it gets sunny and/or 2. run after 8pm.  I chose to get up at the crack of dawn today. Six miles done.

Hello to Mother’s Day yesterday.

I hope everyone had a good one.  Angry Kid and I went out to lunch with my mom and family friends.  Angry Husband took a picture of Angry Kid and I later in the afternoon.

Hello to a new iPad case as a Mother’s Day gift.

My Avia recommended this one from Brookstone. I love it. Angry Kid picked out red because it means “LOVE”.

I got my iPad in March. I seriously needed a case, and the keyboard, a total bonus!

Yippee, the family got me the @Brookstone iPad case that I wanted for Mother's Day. Angry Kid said he picked out red, because it means love. #mothersday

Hello to Angry Kid seeing his mentor, Jacob.

Jacob is 13 and will be a freshman in high school in September. How time flies.  He is my friend’s son, and I remember when he was a tiny baby. Seriously, this almost 7 year old and 13 year old are very similar. It is scary.  They both love USC also.

Hello to forgotten photos.

Oops, I forgot to post edit the photos from our last soccer game in February. I went through about 100 photos this weekend and edited them.

Yes, my son climbed up on the playground equipment.

Hello Star of the Week.

Angry Kid is “Star of the Week” this week.

His birthday is Saturday.  I told him that he needed to work on his poster. He asked if I could, “take care of that”, ha.

Of course, my best work is done at the last minute, you know, midnight.

Organizing for Star of the Week poster

I will be working on my presentation for the Orange County Social Media Summit the next few days.

I am a keynote speaker. I am crazy. 600 SIX HUNDRED people. What the heck was I thinking?

Are you coming?

Well…

I sure hope your speech went well! Oh my goodness. I can't imagine how nerve wracking that must have been! I love your dress in the picture of you with your son. What a beautiful family you have.

Good for you for getting up and pounding the pavement so early. I just got back into running and as the temps warm up here I know I'm going to have to get out earlier to beat the heat. Sounds like it was a good Mother's Day and your kid's expressions are always priceless :)

Thanks so much!!! Wearing a dress was a much needed break from wearing jeans and converse all the time.

Thanks so much. The speaking and keynote went well with some technical difficulties. I should be doing a recap post soon. I'm waiting for them to post the video so that I can link to it.

Seriously, it is so hard to get up early. I've changed my mind and find running at 7:30pm much more easier than the crack of dawn....Yes, it was a good Mother's Day. My son always makes the oddest faces....
