I wanted to write a special post for Mal on his birthday, but I didn’t want it to be too mushy-gooshy and embarrass him either, so here’s a Top 10 list of reasons why he rules.

  1. He has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh every day.
  2. He’s really smart. He might even be smarter than me, which I hate to admit.
  3. He’s never afraid to speak his mind.
  4. He loves iced coffee and beer as much as I do.
  5. He supports my running hobby by running races faster than me with me.
  6. He gets excited about the little things in life.
  7. He’s a really good judge of character.
  8. He’s proud to tell people that he’s a teacher.
  9. He supports my career and everything that goes along with it.
  10. He’s loves Murphy just as much as I do.

Last Night’s Dinner

Last night’s dinner was packed with vegetables. Love that!

Homemade Boboli pizza with shredded cheese, marinara sauce, green bell pepper, red onion, and black olives.

This morning’s breakfast was overnight (cooked) bulgur mixed with chia seeds, almond milk, ground flaxseed meal, almonds, and a scoop of peanut butter. I also enjoyed a glass of iced coffee with vanilla soy milk.

Question of the Day

Why do YOU rule?


Leave a comment on this post about why you rule and wish Mal a happy birthday, and I’ll randomly pick someone to win a signed copy of my book tomorrow morning!


  1. Happy, happy birthday! You’ve got one special lady there.

    I rule because I have the ability to choose how I react to the events in my life. That makes ALL the difference!!!

  2. Happy Happy Birthday Mal!! I think it is so wonderful you are a teacher.
    I rule because I love to keep my eyes open to all the beauty in the world.
