I Just LOVE Her!

This is my sister, Nicole! There are many reasons why I love Nicole today though, she gave me a smile when I so desperately needed it. I wasn't having a great day at work, I was almost in tears in fact. Everyone was in a bad mood guests and co-workers. Tips were TERRIBLE! I just felt like nothing could go right. Close to the end of my shift I snuck to the back to check my phone to see if I was even a little bit popular....I had a picture message that looked like this:

The text read: Did you know you look at me while I'm working..... Well ya do!

I automatically teared up (Ok I'm a little sensitive lately so mock me if you must) and thought if nothing goes right in the day who cares because I have family and friends that love me and remind me of that with the funniest and nicest little things in life. So Nicole, thanks for reminding me. I love you!

Run Away With Me?

So if any of you talk to me on a regular basis you know I'm training for a marathon....the San Francisco Marathon next year on July 31st. I know I'm crazy! I thought there is no way I can run that far....well watching Biggest Loser last year I thought yes I can if they can do it I can do it! Then I never did ANYTHING about it. I went to the gym still on a regular basis but there wasn't running involved.
Then May of this past year came around the family got together I made sure I went to the gym in Boise everyday with Kassy (those of you who don't know, she's my older sister). She is inspiring!!! She pushed me she showed me new moves! I loved it. She mentioned a marathon I was all for it. Well I went home and started running on a daily basis.
I am happy to report that after about 4 months of on & off again training I am back on the saddle. I go to the gym at least 4 times a week. I try to not run less than 4 miles a day and set goals for myself at the beginning of each week on how far I can run each week. I went from a non runner to a machine. I would like to say I've slimmed but the more I go each week the hungrier I find I am so instead of fighting it I just eat but I stay the same so that's good :)
This post it about trying to decided where to run my half marathon?? Any suggestions? Throw them out I would love to hear them! Anyway happy blogging!

Oliver Henry

For those of you who don't track Kip and Kimberly's blog like I do I thought you all should know I am once again "Aunted" :) Oliver was born this past Monday he was a few weeks early but according to the Family he's doing well and he's off a ventilator. I'm so happy to have a third nephew! I can't wait to meet the little guy and well you all should be jealous because Kip and Kimberly as you well know make ADORABLE children!

Can't time stand still?

So it's been a while! Life always has a way of continuing on without me blogging it's weird! Someone should really do something about that.

Well I have had tons of fun working and playing the past few months. I got to see almost the whole family in May, which is rare. I visited Washington in April which was AMA-ZA-ZING!

Summer got off to a late start here...lots of rain, which I'm ok with! It snowed in late May which was depressing for me but now we are up to 95 Degree days! I'm still serving and it's paying the bills.

I've been marathon training running at least 30 miles a week for the past month...well last week I got sick so I only did 10 miles total all week. I really want to run the full or half (depending on how I'm doing) marathon in Bellingham on September 25th :) So we'll see right now I can do 9 miles in about 80 minutes without stopping. So that's a highlight for me.

I live in a new apartment with two new roommates. They are great and I enjoy them but I'm not really around them cause I'm at work most of the time. Kristyn got married that was a huge relief now that all the wedding stuff is done :) I enjoy my new ward a lot! They are so friendly and sweet. It's the first ward in a while I actually look forward to going because of the company and not the spirit...BUT the spirit there is great too :)

Anywho I'm running off to work and I'm sorry there aren't pictures I will put some up soon. I will also blog in more detail when I get a second. So I hope you're all doing well! :)

My Bad....

So it's been a while...and I'd like to say I've had a very good excuse except....I don't.
So in the past few weeks I've had a few hobbies and a few big events.

Hobby....numero uno always. I think I have a severe I'm dieting with the gym to see if I can really keep up with the big boys!

Hobby Number Seven (so I skipped a few number I want to keep you on your toes...) Snowboarding...I've been a few dates with a few different guys snowboarding I went for the first time since...well he who shall not be named proposed...I have been having a blast doing it though. This last time I needed a few days with some IMPORTANT VIP's so I headed to Boise to see Bretton and Tyrrell and spent a day boarding and just relaxing it was very nice!!!!

Work isn't really a hobby BUT it's a that has kept me busy and I've thoroughly enjoyed waiting on people hand and foot...not..jk sorta....

I also have enjoyed playing with my roommates!!!! Kristyn just got engaged and is getting married June 5th so that's super exciting and will be time consuming in this house. Shea and I have been playing a lot...not doing anything imparticular but we did roadtrip to Boise together...:)
Shea and I leaving boise....
Shea was waving bye to Boise

Church has taken some time too! I have enthralled myself in scriptures and talks lately especially if I'm having a hard day so that's been an amazing blessing! So all of you who are examples or people I confide in I appreciate the love and support in that area of my life. :)
So ANYWAY more pictures of life will come I'm in a no makeup phase right not many pictures are taken....BUT you will get tons of RoadTrip pictures from me in a few weeks because I'm taking a much needed trip to Washington April 9th- whenever Daniel and I figure out I should come back :) So Never?? JK Love you all!!!!

Dear Mom & Dad,

I LOVE YOU! It's Valentines Day and most people think it's only to celebrate with people you're in love with aka significant other. They are wrong. I got home tonight and was reminded how loved I really am. I worked all day then went to the gym really late, then ran to the store so I could get a few things before tomorrow so I didn't have to shop on Sunday. I've been really distracted this week kinda dreading it actually because I have to work right when church is and Church has been the highlight of my weeks lately.
I started putting eggs away and such and I notice on the counter a package and it's addressed to me! :) :) I was so excited to get a package!!!! I got all rambunctious and showed it off to my roommates before opening it! Inside were baking goods! Which EXCITED me even more!!!!!!!!! I danced around the house saying my parents love me, I don't need a Valentine I have AMAZING parents! So I just wanted to share with all of you how awesome my parents really are (even if they technically don't share the same DNA). Mom & Dad thank you for my package I know the love and care that comes with it and I can't say it replaced the spirit of Church but it gave me a piece of your spirits and I know how Christ like you two are and what an example you are to me so it means a lot! I LOVE YOU!!!
***Side Note: To those of you who did not get Valentines Gifts from your parents it does not mean they love you any less! I just have really good parents! :P
