Happy Easter and Meet My Peep

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Easter for tomorrow.
I actually had off from work Friday and the kids and I slept in, did a little shopping and enjoyed our day. Today has been an absolutely beautiful day. (more on the days activities later) But if you want to really enjoy some Easter cheer and take a look at some creativity with peeps, you need to check out http://www.askgrandmaj.blogspot.com/. She even made me my very own peep. I'm posting mine here, but to see some really cute other ones, visit her website and say "hi". Grandma J is a very special person. She even came out to meet me when I did my first marathon with TNT and she didn't even really know me before then. So here's my special peep.

I love it and it's very appropriate for me right now, especially today. Our TNT group was doing a buddy ride today which is basically an "unofficial" practice. They were meeting way down south (I live way north) and not meeting until 9:00. With a long ride on tap, I was worried about getting done, getting back home and showered in time for my son's soccer game. So, I met another of my teammates at the lake near our house and the two of us headed out to the glorious countryside from there. And what a glorious day for a long bike ride it was! We got in 52 miles and had a great time.
And I was able to make it home, take a shower, even eat something for lunch and then head out to my son's soccer game. He played awesome and they won 2-1. What more could one ask for? Well, maybe that tomorrow be as beautiful as today. Why does it always seem that Easter is cold and everyone freezes in their pretty Easter outfits?
What ever you do Sunday, have a wonderful day!

Happy belated Easter, Briana to you and your family!
Wow, I can't believe how much you like your Peep! Thank you for the wonderful acknowledgement. If it weren't for blogs that actually have a meaning, like yours...I'd have no reason to blog. Mine is pretty hollow and full of fluff, like Peeps lol.

BTW, as the grandmother of a leukemia survivor, I was more than honored and proud to see you at the San Diego Rock & Roll Marathon. You are an inspiration to many. Thank you
