Last Day of 28

Yep, tomorrow I will be 28 no longer. I am just so glad that I'll be 29 and not 30. I still have so much that I want to accomplish before I'm 30. I guess I could make a list of everything, but if I were to do that then I'd have to really do them, right? :) I definitely have to run a race in my 29th year. Since I've done quite a few 5ks and one half-marathon (I definitely couldn't do that without my coach, Austyn), I'd like to do a 10k. You probably thought I was going to say a full marathon, didn't you? Nope. Training for a half-marathon took a lot of time. I don't think there is any way I could train for the full thing with a new baby (okay, maybe there is a way but I'm thinking that it is not the way I want to do it). I'm going to be soaking up every moment of finally having a little baby in my arms.

While we had family here over Thanksgiving, I received an early birthday gift. It was such a sweet idea and so I just have to pass it along for others to use or just so you'll know how blessed I was to be married into such an incredibly thoughtful family. They took me into our library and had me sit down in a chair while Cory's Dad rubbed one foot, Logan (Cory's brother) rubbed the other foot, Sherrie massaged one hand, Becca (Logan's beautiful wife) massaged the other hand, and Cory gave me a facial and neck/shoulder massage. While they were doing all of this they each took a turn saying something they loved about me and their fondest memory with me. How sweet is that? Definitely at the top of my list for favorite birthday gifts. The funny thing about it was that they did it all during the half-time of the BYU game.
