Fab Five Friday

It is back.... at least for this Friday....  Things that I am loving and are making my week lovable, tolerable and much more fun.  I hope you enjoy...I think tomorrow will be 30 days in a row of blogging...I can not believe it.  Stay tuned, I will try to end the streak on a strong note....

1) My NEW Saucony running shoes: When I decided to start running again a few weeks ago, I began having tremendous pain in my left foot.  I was like "Geez, I am a doctor and have no idea what is going on with my foot."  Well, after consulting several friends, I decided new shoes were a must.  We headed down to Swags for new running shoes.  LOVE THESE SHOES... no more foot pain with running.  (the old shoes were able to be folded in half...they exist no more)
 2) Fancy, Re-vamped Blog:  I mean, isn't it awesome.  I can hear you answer yourself, "Yes."  Well I think it is pretty awesome.  I am fond of the toolbar that helps to clean everything up and make it more user-friendly.  I love the family mission statement JT developed for the section about us... I think the header is quite fabulous.  All of this re-design was the brain-child of my dear friend Elizabeth (the same friend who took our family pics and the ones of Tedi from the last post)  I am so pleased with it....Hope you enjoy like I am....(and you if you need your blog sproused up, drop her an email)

3)  My Men: Aren't they handsome?!?!?!    I love these two guys....they make coming home from work the best part of my day.  I sometimes wonder why I have been given so much that I do not deserve.  For that I am thankful!

4)  Note Cards:  If know me, you know I love cards.... sending them, receiving them, buying them...  I guess it started in high school when my friends and I would incessantly write notes to one another.  We would see if we could fold them in cool ways or encode secret messages.  It kept going in college when I would send my friend Emily cards.  Then in med school, my friend Lisa loved cards as much as me and it continued....  For my birthday, my friends and family listened.  Below are the note cards I have been given and purchased of late.  Don't you love them?!  If you want to know where to get awesome cards like these, just let me know.  Also, if you need a pick-me-up or some other encouragement, send me your address...I love sending cards and would love to drop one your way.

5) What I am Reading:  I decided about a month ago that I do not know one thing about boys.  Yes, I am married to one, one that is well-trained by his mother and by me (sorry, JT).  However, raising a boy is different thing all together.  I did some research and found two books to start with.  Currently I am reading "That's My Son" by Rick Johnson.  Growing up with a sister and living with my mom most of the time, I never really experienced life with boys in my house.  I am not used to the noise, the smells, the overall loudness, energy and all that comes with little boys.  This book is providing great insight for me...not just with raising Tedi but also how to better relate with my husband.  I would also recommend it to women without sons who want to understand men better.  Great read and I hope to finish soon!
