My new found passion...



When I closed my store, I made a goal to start running. I love to run and it is a huge stress reliever for me. When I choose to do this, I kept telling myself that I can do anything I set my mind to. After running a business for three years I feel like this whole new person that can do anything I set my mind on. Afterall, running is a complete mind game. I sign up for the Halloween Half Marathon in Provo with Cory, Brad, and Shelley. We had a good time. I finished in 2.13 which was awesome for my first 1/2 marathon. At mile 10 my hip was giving me some incredible pain that slowed me down quite a bit. I couldn't walk the next day but the pain was worth it. Now, on to training for my full marathon in May...

Cory and I trained together. I am so thankful for Cory and Lindsey. They are such an amazing couple! We are so glad to have them with us. This was the funnest Halloween I can remember. After the race we went to Brigham for a trunk or treat and then to visit Grandparents. We went to Melissa and Herman's for dinner and caramel apple dipping! Then on to Farmington to visit the rest of the grandparents. The kids had a good day and seemed very pleased with the candy. Halloween was INCREDIBLE.. Ha Ha

Can you believe it????

Can you believe that I am updating my blog? It has been since March since my last post. Time needs to slow down a little around here. There has been so much that has happened in my life over the last several months. To summerize here is a list of my highlights:

1- Cuddle Haven closed on August 13, 2010.
2- Owen started Preschool, got potty trained, and turned 3.
3- We finished our basement.
4- Jeff and I went on an amazing cruise to the Eastern Carribean.
5- Cory and Lindsey moved in on September 25th.
6- I am now a stay at home mommy!
7- Kaebrie is turning 2 on November 10th.
8- I trained for and ran my first 1/2 marathon.
9- Reorganized, or should I say, organized my life. Finally!
10- Received so many blessings by having a sincere faith in my Heavenly Father.

There is so much more to post about but I decided to start with this weekend and gradually do update posts separate so this one doesn't turn into a novel. Then again, I most likely don't have any readers anymore. It has been awhile!
