Finally Made A Plan

I was going back and forth about what the f I was going to do for my birthday this year. As I mentioned in a previous post, I usually do the dive bar pizza thing and drink too much and eat entirely too much, and I knew for sure I didn't want to do that this year. Tonight, after talking it over with Steve, I've decided to get a handful of my girlfriends together (14, which is really good for me, I usually try to include every single person I know into these kinds of celebrations) to have a nice low-key dinner/celebration.

As I said in the invite, I wanted my birthday to reflect the direction I want my entire year to go in- low-key and not so much focused on how much I can drink and eat. But rather, I'd like to take more time to relax, be with close friends and eat a good meal!

I'm really looking forward to it.

More than that, I really and truly believe that this reflects on one of the most important changes that I've been making over the course of the past year. Which is to take better care of myself.

I also decided to send the following email to my sisters and mother...which is very un-Molly-like. But again, felt like I needed and wanted to speak up about what I wanted for my birthday:

Hi There,

Sorry to be so forward, but I thought I'd give you all some ideas (if you want them) for my you all know, I am going to be focused on getting in shape over the course of the upcoming year, even more than I am now. Plus I'm going to be running a marathon in just over a year and I need to prepare.

Here's what I want/need:
gift certificate to YAS for more spinning and yoga classes, lucy where I get my running pants and bra, Title 9 cause they have good running pants and undes and I might get a new running watch OR Top to Top where I get my running sneakers and socks.

Again, these are just suggestions, but I wanted to put it out there. Please don't take offense to this, or roll your eyes, or forward this to your friends to show how crazy your sister/daughter is.


It's going to be a good year!

For now, I'm going to bed and getting some much-needed rest. Both Clancy and I got a little messed up in Arizona. He's a little worse off than I am- see for yourself below!
