Oh man, yesterday I decided it was time to get myself in shape. On top of running a 5k in November, we have the St. Barbara's Day Ball in December. I really would like to lose about 15 pounds. The last two days I have been going to the gym for about an hour and boy am I sore! I'm going to start going during the week before work and I can't wait to see some results. I'm hoping that it will make me feel better during the day as well, I need a little bit more energy during the day.

We have enjoyed a pretty quiet weekend, I have gotten lots of cleaning done. I even shampooed our carpet downstairs, it just seemed dirty from when we moved in so we went and bought a new carpet shampooer....this thing is fancy! I swear it looks like a spaceship haha. Kyle thinks I'm crazy but cleaning is fun for me.

On a pretty exciting note (well exciting to me lol), my mom was able to get out of the house this weekend and go to the races. My Dad said everyone was so happy to see her, it has been since May since she had been out there. I was able to watch it online and hearing the announcers welcome her back was so sweet. My Dad didn't win the main race but he won a special race called "the duck race". I was sooo happy that they were able to spend a day there and even pick up a win. She is headed to Arizona today for another treatment, please keep her in your prayers as we are hoping for good news again!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!


  1. That's great! I'm so glad you're mom was feeling well enough to get out :)

  2. Complete awesomeness that your mom made it out to the races!!!!!!!!! Prayers going up:)

  3. That's awesome she was able to get out and have fun. I wish I had the motivation to run but with bad knees, the motivation is always missing. We're having a St. Barbara Ball too but for some odd reason ours is in Oct.


Love hearing from you!! :)
