September 5th, 2010

I have something really BIG to share. Many of you know I have been walking and running for the past 5 months. It was a personal goal I set for myself back in December, to get my butt moving and to see where it took me.

I did some soul searching and decided I needed a running event to keep me on track and motivated. I was talking back and forth with some girlfriends about it when I received an email from my GF Shannon. This is what it said...."OK, if you are interested, what about this being a girls trip to Disneyland with a 1/2 Marathon thrown in the middle".

I received on February 20th at 5:51 PM and the rest as they say is history. In the process of training, I have lost 65 pounds and suffered an injury....Thank God it wasn't fractured :) SEE PHOTO.

So, I counted and I have 96 days until the big event. I ran 4 miles today and am really pushing to get back to my pre-injury running schedule. So, let me hear from you. I want and need your encouragement. CAN NOT WAIT to cross that finish line with my girlfriends. Hugs

A class With Friends :)

This past Saturday, my friend Janet Hopkins taught classes at my favorite scrapbook store in the world, By Design Scrapbook Boutique . I had not signed up for the classes ahead of time because of all the crazyness that is the end of school. You all know what I mean, right? Anyway, I went to the store just to say hi and to catch up with she and Tracy. Guess what, on a whim, i just stayed and took a class. Had no tools with me, Tracy let me borrow (Thanks Tracy). Plus, I sat by my design team friends Teri and Linda and they have EVERY supply ever made :) I LOVED the project and plan to give it to Reagan's Math and Science teacher. This is her first year to teach.

I continue to be amazed every time I sit in a Janet Hopkins class. She challenges and intrigues me more than any instructor I have ever had. She uses the most interesting, everyday items in her projects and turns them in to works of art. Taking a class with her is like scrapping with your BFF. So, thanks Janet. You made my day!! If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, DO IT. Oh, By the way, all the papers are available for download through House Of 3.

I also, met a blog friend in Class. She inspired me to Blog, so thanks for that Nancy :)

Living In The Moment

I am REALLY trying to be more present. Enjoying EVERY moment, right then, right there. Not just hearing my children, but really listening to each word they say. I have been leading the kind of life that is moving way to fast, stirring the crazy pot if you know what I mean. Today, Reagan asked me to eat lunch with her at school. I went, and here are a few pics of the fun time we had together. Enjoying each other, enjoying the moment :)
