Catching up on camera

I am still alive and kicking. I am even still running.
I am slowly digging myself out of chaos.
Manageable chaos, self induced.

Thanksgiving has passed.
Christmas is already a memory and life is breathing again.
I am crawling out of my hole.
I had a few days it was hit or miss. Long days, late nights and lists that never appeared to have a period. And we are not talking menstrual, we are talking punctuation.

I am now running in multiple layers of uncomfortable clothing.
Tights that are too tight. Thermal shirts that itch. Hats that make my hair stinky.
Layers, soo many layers that stick in weird places and bunch up leaving me feeling like the Michelin Man.
OHH and lets not leave out the fact that its so stinking freaking bloody cold all my devices keep FREEZING up and shutting off on me!

Ill catch you up to speed through some photos.

LACEY, PAULA AND MATT surprised me with a mini birthday party. This was seriously one of the sweetest things. Because my birthday is so close to Christmas it is really a P.I.T.A. 
Everyones busy, and I feel like a burden. But they made me feel like a princess. 
Whiny Butterfly may be a nickname I have adopted. 
I opened Laceys gift, the one she has been ITCHING to give me since Thanksgiving, and jumped all over like monkey. 
She found me a running skirt from Lululemon with BUTTERFLIES all over them!! `

I have wanted a pair of these obnoxious running glassed for a year! My mother in law bought me them for my birthday. I wore them on Christmas to try them out. I got caught in a white out, they were AWESOME. They kept the snow out of my eyes and added the perfect amount of ridiculousness. They are so FUN! I want them in every color! 

All my goodies on!

PART of my goodies from Christmas. Andy always spoils me. 
Brooks windbreaker
Runners World Journal
Runners World Train Smart. 
Smart Wool Buff with Merino wool
Nike layering thermal shirt
A bib/medal hanger

THESE ARE THE MOST AMAZING SOCK. Andy bought me a pair 2 years ago. They don't get wet! My feet stay dry and warm.They are expensive, 50$, but worth every penny if your an outside winter runner.

I got distracted this morning and "Ran" out of time to go to the gym. I had to buck up and venture outside in sub zero degree weather. 
I NEVER got cold. However, if my eyelashes could speak, they would be cursing me. I actually had a car come to a complete stop. This man rolled down his windows, with a big smile he yelled "You are the BEST, Good for you, you are the BEST!" 
I smiled until I realized I dropped my brand new glasses somewhere through the village of Holly. I found them! tucked away in a snowbank. OHH happy day! 

So...If I can organize my day properly ttomorrow, I will give a review of all my new goodies..including the new New Balance running coat Andy bought me for my birthday!
And loved.
