All in the Family

Just dug this picture out of the closet today. It's a few years old, at Jeremy and Amber's wedding, but it's a great reminder of who made me who I am today. I love these people!

7 Miles

The title speaks for itself. I just really need to work on speed. I'm a slow runner, but I have made it past the halfway mark to the half marathon. Okay...time for a shower.

School Carnival

My little water babies aka: dunk artists. This is all they wanted to do...be dunked. This is what they begged for from the moment they heard the school was having a carnival. This is why I stayed up late last night baking eight dozen nut free zucchini brownies (from homemade mind you, not from a box mix). All for these kiddies, who I love with all my heart.

Happy 60th Daddy and Kathy


I wanted to send very special birthday wishes to two very important people in my life. My daddy, and my wonderful mom-in-law, Kathy. They share the exact same birthday. September 15Th, 1948. They were born in the same hospital, a couple of hours apart. Anyway, we had a huge party at our house on Saturday and everyone we loved came to celebrate this awesome occasion. Happy 60Th guys. I love you both with all my heart.

This Is Fun!

This one is called "Braids, Braids and More Braids." Is it normal for a mom to have this much fun doing her daughter's hair, because I am having fun!This one is "The Peacock". She loved it. I steal all these fun ideas from my favorite hair site, "Babes In Hairland."

Sundance Food and Wine Festival



We went with Justin's parents to the Sundance Food and Wine Festival. It was very, very hot, but awesome. The scenery was beautiful and there were so many wonderful wines we wanted to buy-but couldn't (THANKS Utah!). The food was really good and I even got one of the recipes from Tony Caputto's, but only after he noticed I was on my fourth sample and I had to tell him "If you would just give me the recipe, I wouldn't have to keep getting samples!" There was a live band, Fat Paw, who I have liked for awhile so I just had to buy their new CD of course (Tim Wray "The Velvet Ditch"). It was a fun, hot day.

I AM SORE!!!!!!!!!!

Today was my first 6.31 mile road run. I ran to my mom’s house by Brighton, and back. My hip flexors are so tender, I seriously can not lift my leg from the hip. Time for ice and Ibuprofen. Phew…took me 1 hour, 21 minutes. Now I need to work on the time since I can “go the distance“!

Sunset Beach Vacation

What a much needed, highly anticipated and eagerly awaited vacation.  We got to our rental home and it was a quaint little beach house 40 ya...
