Happy Mother’s Day & the rest of my birthday weekend!

Hi everyone 🙂

I’ve seen so many heart warming posts the past few days for mother’s day! So here is my 2 cents, because even though this weekend was pretty crazy busy I’d never forget my mum ❤

So Happy Mother’s day mum!! Thank you for ALWAYS being there for me and for being the most strong and brave person I know! Love you!! These are from my mum’s trip to New York last year! A time that I’d always cherish since we did so many mother – daughter things!! Like afternoon tea at the Plaza hotel 😉

And of course I wouldn’t want to forget, my @M&M_taleoftworuns, who is like a mama number 2 🙂 Happy mother’s Day to both of these incredible ladies who we ❤ very very much!

Oh, and just a few moments from my birthday weekend which was amazing! Many many thanks to @mymamus and my friends for making it so special!

Friday morning I went into work to see this ❤ My good friend and co -worker takes very seriously the blowing a candle/make a wish birthday ritual and she needed to make sure I will get mine! Yes, that is a yummy blueberry muffin which I ate later that day! It was my birthday after all…

Like the past 3 years – i am starting to believe it’s becoming a tradition – I spent my birthday in a symposium/conference again… The best part though? My poster (like a showcase for my work) got first prize among all the other postgraduates (aka around 80 posters) 😀 Woo Hoo!! Oh, and of course I got some beautiful roses (and tons of ice cream!) compliments of @mymamus 😉

Tapas for dinner and some wine, yum yum yum! And of course you can see clearly in my face my unconditional love for cupcakes!! ❤ ❤

Even though it was my birthday, I couldn’t not run/workout or somehow spent some of my energy… So I had my birthday run with my running buddy, great 8km with the sun shinning and a temperature at around 26C (70F) – in the UK this is considered a heat wave…no i am not joking!!! Well, i did get a little sunburned on my shoulders…

And then a 30′ weight lifting session since I still had quite a bit of energy left (and needed an excuse to eat to more ice cream cones LOL!)

Oh and finally, right before I passed out on Sunday night, I did a little bit of Sunday food prep! After all the splurge this weekend I am hoping for an extra healthy week!! As for those ground turkey stuffed eggplants, I promise I ‘ll share the recipe soon! They are sooooo good!!
