this AM i woke up totally on the wrong side of the bed....to say i was in a monday morning funk would be an understatement.  i stayed up entirely too late doing important things like watching bravo's shahs of sunset (did i seriously admit that), then i got in bed and started thinking about all the things i had to do this week....i stared at the ceiling for a very long time....then the alarm went off to go running but right before i was about to leave i checked my phone and my runner partner had canceled....i needed to turn my day around.  ask warren, he'll vouch that was mood was rotten.....
so after dropping taylor off, walker and i went for a run.  and i must say there is nothing better then pounding the pavement when things aren't going your way.  before i left, i created a new playlist that included we are young (seriously see if you can listen to this song and not be transformed into a 21 yr old) and otis (this just makes you feel like a bad a$$).  and afterwards, i was transformed into a new person.....
 so i think i owe my family a due over for this AM.....
 here you go honey :)
in other news....i did start my front porch makeover......and i am already so much happier!!  i painted my bench, got ferns, added pine straw, had some bushes chopped back, and bought flowers for my planters and bed (now if i can just plant and water them)......
still need to paint my front door and ceiling and get a new light but things are looking up!!  okay, i'm off to love on this little man...
have a HAPPY monday!!!!

I have those days every once in a while, typically do to late night TV watching! I am glad to hear you are out of your funk. :) Exercise makes me feel so much better.

Aren't Mondays the hardest! We were coming off a week at the beach for spring break, so when that alarm went off, not only did I turn over but my hubby did too! Ugh! Then it got better from there. I am off to run some miles myself and then can hunker down for tv tonight with the kids...love your progress on your porch!! and your son is beautiful!!! i could squeeze him too!
