Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to yoooou! Happy birthday, Dear Nana!! Happy birthday to YOOOOOOU!!!! Today is a pretty special day in celebration of a mighty special lady, my grandmother. She lives far from me and I hardly ever get to see her anymore but I miss her like crazy. I miss the days when we both lived in New Jersey before she retired and moved to Ohio where she now lives.

I talk about my grandmother in my About Babbles section here and it speaks the truth. I wrote there that she’s “Patient and kind, opinionated and always there to give you good advice whether you want it or not sometimes, and that’s a good thing. She is a person hugely responsible for shaping me into the woman that I am today and I love her dearly for it.”

My grandmother is incredible. Attentive, supportive and sometimes maybe she asks a few too many questions than people are comfortable with. I love her with all my heart for all the wonderful qualities that make Nan uniquely her. Love you, Nan! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

As my grandmother celebrates her birthday, today I’ll be doing something completely different. I’ll be running a 5K today complete with 20 different challenging obstacles and a lot of mud. Can’t wait! My best friend, Mike and I are running it with his wife and a few of our friends. Next month, she and I along with a few girlfriends of ours are doing an all girls mud run too! Nothing like some good clean, er… dirty fun.

In other news, this week my favorite recipe I bookmarked was Slow Cooker Kalua Pork with Chive-Lime Rice from Nobel PigThe title completely and accurately conveys the flavor explosion that your mouth is about to experience. I mean, come on!! How good does that sound?!? You gotta pop on over and see how gorgeous and mouth-watering it looks too. I am making this insanely delicious sounding dish this weekend and I cannot wait. As always, you’ll find a recap of all the deliciousness that you may have missed here this week.

Enjoy!
