YUM! and FUN!




OH, I am loving summer days! we just got home from a morning at Bible Study, and the park. My girls are EXHAUSTED, and crashed at the moment. Emma had a blast on the swings!

We also went to a birthday party this weekend of my cousins daughter who turned 7, on 7-7-07. How fun is that? Sarah enjoyed her cupcake...but not the frosting that went up her nose!

I have been busy looking and dreaming of scrapbook supplies. I am getting SO inspired by other blogs I am reading...there are so many creative ladies out there!

We are in for a weekend of birthdays...Mia has her party of Princesses on Sunday, and a friend who shares Mia's birthday is having a party on Saturday..should be fun and tiring!

This is the first time using my new camera for pictures on the internet..not too shabby!

Today, I became a Mom....







Four years ago, today my daughter Mia was born. She is one of the biggest joys in my life. She has been my "Mommy Coach"for the past 4 years...teaching me through trial and error what it means to be a Mom.
She is a true princess...she only wears dresses, skirts or Cinderella outfits. She likes to paint her nails, do her hair, and wear high heels. I couldn't have asked for more of a "girly girl"

So, Happy Birthday Little Princess! May your day be filled with love and laughter, and all the things that make you smile. Thank you for making me a better person in this life, I cherish every moment of it with you!

OUCH!


Okay so I have been doing SO well with this Body for Life Challenge...but man am I sore! I worked my hamstrings 2 days ago, and I am still feeling the effects! I am supposed to run 6 miles tomorrow, and I don't know if I am going to make it!

The food is GREAT! We had french dip for dinner, and an omelette for breakfast. WOW! Have never cooked so much!


Bad news....my girlfriend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer is having a hard time. She has 2 little ones, and is torn up about the possibility of leaving them without a mother. And her husband is devastated at the thought of losing his wife of 6 years. She is at stage 3, and beginning chemo next week. She has already had a double mastectomy. I live about 6 hours from her, and hate the fact that I can't do anything from where I am. I will just pray, and ask others to pray that God would heal her body. She has a purpose in this world, and it is NOT to bring two beautiful children into this world to leave them motherless!!!!


Good news...I just got a job! After finishing my marathon with Team in Training, I just had to have more! So I applied to be a Team Manager....and low and behold I got it! It is a work from home position that will allow me to work at home and be with my girls, and yet do some work outside of the home too! All for an incredible cause!

Above: a picture of the Team RIGHT before we got on the bus to run the Rock N Roll Marathon!


Well I am off to HOPEFULLY scrapbook with some friends...then for long run tomorrow!
