Feeling Rough... but Happy Monday!

Hi, everybody!

Well, the good news is that I hit 23.4 miles for last week! That is officially my biggest week ever.
I capped it off with a 6 miler on Saturday morning. The run itself was pretty unmemorable, but I did learn a valuable lesson: when it's 32 degrees and drizzling, the boardwalk part of the Duluth Lakewalk is slippery. I learned that the hard way when I slipped on it and fell 3 miles in. :( I came down on my knee, but it's actually my back that was really hurting after the fact. This little guy was my friend the rest of the day:
I'm doing OK in that regard right now, thank goodness.
But, I'm feeling a bit rough this morning. We spent Superbowl Sunday at Buffalo Wild Wings, and I let myself indulge a bit because I LOVE BWW. I'll spare the details, but let's just say I either overdid it or had something my stomach didn't want.
So, instead of running, this is how I'm spending my day thus far:

PJ's, Ginger Tea, and Jersey Shore.  I feel really bad not running, I even called home to see if I was doing the right thing, and she told me I was. It's early enough in training that it's OK.
But, I"m still gonna do a Happy Monday, if nothing else to cheer myself up!

 It's no secret that Mondays can be kind of a downer at times, especially coming off a good weekend. With that thought in mind, I bring you "Happy Monday!", in which I post a short list of things that are making me happy at the moment. Big things, small things, silly things, serious things, any thing that I find bringing a smile to my face can be on this list.
So, here are a few things that are making me happy this Monday!
1. This picture
My future husband, ladies and gentlemen. Superbowl Sunday, wearing a Packers shirt, and eating cheese. The man is 100% Wisconsin, and it cracks me up.
(For the record, I have never seen him as happy as he was at the end of the game last night, nor will I ever probably see him that happy again. It was unreal.)

2. The Puppy Bowl

Hours and hours of adorable? How can that not make you happy beyond belief? 
These two were my favorites--CB the Beagle/Shih-Tzu mix, and Chih the Shih-Tzu (who reminds me of my "nephew", Dave). It didn't help my puppy fever, that's for sure. Why oh why do we have to live in another building that doesn't allow pets? :(

Short list today on my end--what's making you all happy this Monday?
