Apparently 2010 will be my year for running races. In the last week I have added two more races to my calendar! I am now signed up for ....
  • Moab 5 miler (I am going with Beckie who is doing the 1/2 marathon! I wussed out and am only doing the 5 miler.)
  • Women of Steel Tri (May)
  • Escape from Alcatraz swim (June)
  • Ragnar Relay (June)
I am sure there will be more to come ... stay tuned.

I guess I should start, I don't know, WORKING OUT! Wish me luck!
(what am I thinking?)

19 years and counting!

Friends Christmas Party 2009
It is one of my most favorite weekends of the year! I look forward to it for weeks. You already know what a lucky girl I am to have such amazing girlfriends and how I cherish them.I am amazed that 19 years has gone by ... and while our lives have been eventful, little has changed when we all get together for annual Christmas sleepover at the cabin. We eat and laugh and share our lives with each other. There is little sleep because we don't want the night to end. We are so glad Shan waited to have her baby so she could be at the party!The best part is that Beck comes for the whole weekend! I love it! I take a day off school and we hit the ground running. As ALWAYS it went by way to fast. We crammed an amazing amount of stuff in. Every girl should be so lucky to have a BF like Beckie! LYG girls!

Pie! Pie! Pie!

My favorite part of THANKSGIVING is the pie! (I don't really even like Thanksgiving dinner). It has become a tradition in my family to have "a pie per person"! We don't really ... but come pretty close.

My Dad and I start eating pie the night before ... just to test them out. This year was no exception. Dan made the most beautiful pies! We had pecan (made by me), cherry, apple, mince meat, berry, peach and Jennie's chocolate! My mom and Hun set a most lovely table ... as always! Would you expect anything less from them?
I took up knitting this Thanksgiving. I thought I would just knit out a scarf over the break ... how about a wash cloth!
Notice the dark hair with a little dash of holiday red!
