This is my first Friday Fill-in. Feel free to join in and add to your blog!

1. Birthdays are ______. A big deal at our house. On their birthday the boys each get what we call their Birthday Week. It's a whole week when they don't have to do any of their chores and they get to choose what is for dinner that week, etc. We have a special plate, and a big banner that hangs up the whole week, a birthday doorbell, etc. I have always given them a kid party each year with a theme. That is one of my favorite things to do. I miss doing those now that they are getting older. I love making and decorating cute cakes to go with the theme of the party.

2. ____ is my favorite season because ______. Spring. It is like a renewal of life when I am so tired of the long, cold winters! I also love the smells and birds singing!

3. I feel my best when _________. I've got enough sleep and I have exercised.

4. ______ is my favorite food! Lasagna! And you thought I was going to say chocolate! That is my favorite food group! :D

5. First impressions are _______. Lasting.

6. The best piece of advice I ever received was ___________. Oh, so many! The one that helps me through each day is...Do not worry over things that you have no control over. It is a waste of energy. And I live by the's all about choices.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to _____, tomorrow my plans include _____ and Sunday, I want to _____! This weekend unfortunately nothing. I have to finish this book I am working on for my parent's anniversary and it is getting old! Tomorrow I have my long run I am not looking forward to either. I am planning on 10 miles. I will also still be working on the book and the invites and hopefully going to my son's football 7 on 7 tourney. Sunday I want to REST! But I don't see that happening because I have to get this book done by Monday! I do want to go to my in laws and visit with Karen and fam.

For more Fill-ins go here.

What a nice blog you have; it's filled with a positive feeling when you open it. I did think you were going to say chocolate, but at least you got it in as your favorite food group. I like to ride my bike in the summer, but jogging's not for me. Too much impact on my poor feet which have all they can do to stand and teach during the year.

I like your blog... the title is perfect. I also browsed your jogging blog. I started running again last year after 20 years!! YIKES!! Makes me sound old... Anyway, I ran my firs 5K in Sept. 07 and currently in the process of running my 2nd. I enjoy running... it's a great escape for me (also good running songs help too! I couldn't imagine running without my iPod!)

I really did think you were going to say chocolate.
