Dang Jazz!

I am pretty upset this morning! Last Night I stayed up as long as possible to watch the Jazz the game and when I drifted off to dream about Kyle Korver :)... they were looking good. It was a close game but I just knew they would pull it off...Well I thought they would pull it off. When I woke up at 4:50 this morning the first thing I did was turn on the TV to ESPN to see what the final result was! To my dismay the Jazz lost! I turned off the TV so I would not have to see the highlights of the game! I hope they have better luck and on Saturday! I think I will be able to watch the whole thing, maybe I am the good luck charm!

Eric's Day at the Track

Eric always tells me and Kenzie how easy running is. He says "if I wanted to, I could out run you guys any day." I always tell him, "you would not make it a mile..." (ie: When I was training for the 1/2 Marathon Eric always told me that it was no big deal and he could do it with no training, these were the days that he wanted me to help with apartments, of course) So... a couple Sundays ago we decided to go take the dogs to the middle school track here in Green River, so Kenzie could practice hurdles and we could hang out, enjoy the beautiful day, and play around. On the way over there I asked Eric if he was going to show us how many miles he could run, he said "sure"!

This is his first lap. He is very tired and is about to give up but Kenzie offers to run a lap with him...he agrees to run one more lap (only a 1/2 mile)!

Even Boo is offering to help! This is after the 2nd lap with Kenzie.

And now he is walking again! I offer to run the last two with him! We finished and he was beyond tired! He works his butt off everyday but I think his lungs are a little out of shape! And now all he does for the rest of the time at the track is sit just like this...

I do believe that my husband can do anything he puts his mind to, but it was quite funny watching him find out that it is not as easy as he thinks!

Kenzie's Track Meet!

Kenzer going for her PR in Pole Vault last Friday at the Green River invite!

She did so good in all of her events!
She took 9th in the hundred meter hurdles which is awesome for a Freshman at a varsity meet!

She also got a PR in the long jump! She will kicking every body's butts before long.

Jazz Game!

A couple of weekends ago I finally received my long awaited birthday present! Eric got Jazz tickets for my whole family! It was so fun! They were playing the Spurs (my most hated team-"whiner babies"). The game was amazing! The seats were closer then I had ever been so I was so excited! The Jazz, being their usual selves, didn't kick it in till the 2nd half but they played so good! They held the Spurs to the lowest score EVER! I could not have chosen a better game to see! I even got a Deron Williams shirt to show my love! I really do LOVE that guy. Not as much as I love Eric of course, but I do love him!

I think my mom and dad and Jodi and Matt had fun too! Jodi didn't send me any pictures of her and Matt but take my word for it they were their normal cute selves! And you can tell by the look on my mom's face that she was having a blast! Super Cute, Mom! After the Game we ate at the Melting Pot (my absolute favorite!) and stayed the night. On Saturday we just shopped a bit and went to a home show! I won't bore you with all of those pictures but I got some awesome ideas for our addition! (OK, maybe just one cute picture from Saturday)

Rock n' Roll Marathon

So, if you have read any of my previous blogs you know that I ran a 1/2 Marathon in January of this year! It was amazing! Eric and I forgot a camera so we used Marty and Norm's (my in-laws) camera. They finally got back earlier this week so I went and got the pictures off their camera! So guess what, you guys get to be flooded with Pics from Phoenix! I bet you are ecstatic...
I was almost done here! What an awesome feeling! Well- I was not "feeling" awesome but you know what I mean!

I am happy to say that I ran the whole thing! I think this picture is taken is right before the finish line! I was so happy! Goal accomplished!
Eric was by biggest supporter! He only complained twice that I was spending hours and hours at the gym instead of helping with the apartments.

Notice all the food I am holding? After you get done running 13.1 miles they flood you with fruit, Popsicles, and CHEETOS! Are you kidding me? This might be the one time in my life that there is now way in heck I could eat Cheetos! The Popsicle was awesome, I could not eat much else!

Jen (my sister-in-law) also completed the 1/2 marathon! She was going for the run/walk approach so I got to see her cross the finish line!

Goal Accomplished!

And last but not least, a tribute to our biggest fans!

Ian! Jen's Hubby and Eric's little brother! I think he also trained with Jen a bit!

Laura and her daughter. Laura stated the training but she decided to get pregnant so she cheered us on instead!

Marty and Eric! Marty was also my shopping partner after the race!

Chris! Laura's Hubby and the reason she could not participate :)!

Stormin' Norman!

My new adventure!

After I finished running the half marathon I took a major break. I have not run more then 10 miles since January 19th! So, needless to say, I have put some pounds on and I am not feeling so energetic anymore! Another effect of the Training was that I lost ALL of my jumping ability! So I made a decision last week to get back into shape, but I did not want to run several miles a day, because I still want to be able to be better then or at least keep up with the girls I coach (volleyball). I have been hearing from several friends how great the P90X program is! So I have decided to give it a try! I got home Saturday night and found that my new “motivation in a box” had been delivered! I will be starting the program full-fledged tomorrow, and no, it will not always be tomorrow! I am supposed to take before pictures and pictures every 30 days for the next 90 days to see the results. No worries, I will not be posting these pictures but I will sure keep you posted on the results! Hopefully they are awesome! !

I am so very excited!

Say Hello to my Little friend! I ordered this today and I think I found an awesome price on it! I am so excited to have it in my hands! I will be playing with it so much that I might not get anything else done! I will be going to the Jazz Game Tonight (My birthday present from my Husband) so it is very unfortunate that I will not have it tonight, but I am still excited beyond words!

Fun Weekend!

I had such a fun weekend this past weekend! I wanted to share the pictures with you!
"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink."~Barbara Alpert

My sister Jodi and I had so much fun together! We don't get to spend very much time together on a regular basis so it was so fun to get to see her and share this great weekend with her! I will have to come steal her from her hubby more often! How do people make it through life without a sister? We are part of such a Great Family Business!

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." ~Marcel Proust

These are my gorgeous and wonderful Mary Kay girlfriends! I loved getting to know every single one of these girls better this weekend! From left to right they are Gina Sims, Me, Jodi Mitchell, and Fara Hiser!
I really hate being on stage but it wasn't so bad after all! I think I am going to start practicing so that I can get used to it!
