Happy Birthday Mom!

by Meghann on September 2, 2010

Happy Birthday Mommy!


For some reason when I was looking for photos of my Mom on Facebook the majority of them were of her and Maddie.

Does she love her grand pup or what? πŸ™‚

Today my beautiful Mother turns 46.

Don’t be scared of that age Mom! Be proud of it! Own it!


Currently my Mom and Dad are celebrating her birthday weekend in Colorado with family and friends. Even though my Mom is miles and miles away I know she still reads the blog everyday and would love it if we could greet her with some birthday love the next time she signed on. πŸ˜‰ 

So, if you have a minute, please leave my Mom some birthday love in the comments section!

Because, after all, doesn’t she look fabulous for being 46? Doesn’t look a day over 35 if you ask me. πŸ˜‰

Oh! I almost forgot!

Happy Birthday to my Aunt Liz too!

They are twins after all. Can’t wish Happy Birthday to one without wishing it to the other. πŸ˜‰

I celebrated my Mom’s birthday this morning with some early morning Yassos on the track. I completed 7 sets of 800 with 3:40 jogs in between. Including the warm up and cool down I did a total of 6.8 miles in about 52 minutes. It felt good. πŸ™‚

A Pack & Go Breakfast



Breakfast Cookie a la Fitnessista made of 1/2 cup of Rolled Oats, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Chips, Cinnamon, and Honey Peanut Butter.


Figs, Figs, and More Figs! (and blueberries)


When there powers combine…


You get breakfast!


Perfection. πŸ™‚

One last HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! and I’m off! πŸ™‚

My parents call my dog their grandpup too! I think it is them not so discreetly hinting that they want a grandchild. They’ll just have to make do with the “fur child” for now!

Happy Birthday to your mum! You should try roasting the figs in the oven and then drizzling them with honey and serving with mascarpone cheese… it’s unbelievably good! x

I never thought you and your mom looked alike until I saw that picture of your faces right next to each other! Happy birthday to her!

21 Meghan September 2, 2010 at 9:39 am

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your mom and aunt! They are young..and look it too! I had younger parents than most of my friends growing up also and loved it!!

I have yet to try a fig (I know..) and I am dying too since seeing them pop up on your blog recently!

Happy birthday to your mother! She looks great!

My mom is a twin, too. Is yours identical? If she’s fraternal, then you are more likely to have twins!

23 Meghann September 2, 2010 at 9:55 am

My Mom is an identical twin, but I’m a fraternal twin.
