Last day to help donate for Isabelle!

I know I have officially become one of the worst bloggers out there. I have been meaning to post pictures from the race and tell everyone how it was. Nick and I did great! I am so proud of us! I came in at 2 hours 12 minutes and he came in less than 4 minutes behind me! We trained extremely hard for this and it is just a nice feeling when you accomplish a goal. This took months and months to train for and I do have a feeling that it will not be my last!

This is Isabelle over at our house last night asking everyone to help us donate. This is the last day to help us reach our goal, if you haven't donated please do so!

I'll post more pictures from the race!

Pictures I've been meaning to post

First off, these are the beautiful flowers that Whitney and Michelle made for Chrissy's shower the other week. I'm quite impressed with their flower arranging skills!!! I had lots of glass containers filled with lemons and limes so there was lots of bright colors for the party.

This is a perfect example of how Marty and I are every time we see each other. We are singing along to some Britney Spears at Whit's I miss Marty!!! Happy Birthday girl...I love you!!!
She's been telling me that all of her Richmond girls are taking her to brunch tomorrow morning where there is a Drag Queen show too!!! She'll be sending me pics all during brunch, what a way to celebrate your birthday weekend!!!

Look how big Cody has gotten!!! I still can't believe that he is almost 60 pounds. This is a typical day with him jumping in my car before I get into...when I feel guilty about not giving him a walk that day...we go for a car's his favorite thing to do besides eating!!!

Is it just me or do husbands really have that small of a brain to remember stuff?

Ok, since I haven't been posting anything fun lately (if you don't know by won't work)...I have to use my husbands. Again, I am a newly (kind of) married woman who is still learning her husband. All I ask is "Baby, please take the meat out of the freezer so it will be thawed by the time we get home from work." He says he will. Now this isn't the first time I have asked him to take it out while he's on his lunch break nor is it the first time he has forgotten. So he calls me at 5:00 beating around the bush to go play a game of darts with his best friend, Will. I don't care if he plays darts with Will, just say "I'm going to play a game of darts with Will." It's that easy not to beat around the bush and then he goes on to say..."oh by the way, I forgot to take the meat out of the freezer, what do you want to do for dinner?" I guess this is just something I am going to have to get used to but it drives me crazy! I asked him two things today: 1. get meat out of freezer AND 2. figure out what to do for dinner...I don't feel like thinking of something. Well his bright idea is...lets just make sandwiches (except for the fact we don't have bread or sandwich meat...I know...seriously need to go to the grocery...BUT I am trying to be the good wife and use what we have in the cabinets before we go to the store). I hate to bitch but please let me know I am not the only one that gets frustrated!!! I guess I got so frustrated b/c in the same conversation he said, "so & so really wants us to go hang out with them tomorrow night." Really? We have plans to go eat a dinner with my sister and brother-in-law that we have been planning for weeks (he forgot about the first one, then sis had stomach bug, so needless to say this is way over due). At that moment I was for sure I knew the reason why wives had to nag their husbands! If I had to "remind" him about the freezer or dinner a million times he would just get mad at me and say not to remind him because he's "got it." But, when it seems like when I let it go...HE FORGETS! The joy of marriage!!!!
By the way- I am absolutely insanely in love with him...he is an amazing husband- cleans, grills, does laundry, clean up doggy he knows I am giving him a hard time!
We are so close to the race I am starting to get NERVOUS...not only is it supposed to snow on Friday (really...b/c we live in Alabama and this will make it like the 3rd time THIS YEAR)...we still need's yalls help and donate. For something creative...check out Isabelles mom's blog

Monday, February 8, 2010 we come baby!

I can't believe we only have a couple of days! This is it! We have trained for months and months and the time has come. I can honestly say that I am ready for it...I can only pep myself up for this weekend. I am just so proud to say that we have raised over $3,600 for The Bell Center. That is over $1,000 goal they have given us! You still have time to help us raise money.

Truthful Tuesdays- Groundhog Day

"If you could do-over one scene from your life...what would it be and why?"

I have just found Elizabeth's blog, so I am going to start participating in Truthful Tuesdays. She has picked this question today because of the great movie...Groundhog Day! If any of you know me, there are unfortunately way too many scenes I wish I could do-over in life...for example, the stupid ways that I act when I've had a little too much to drink. You girls reading know exactly what I am talking about. Sometimes I feel that I am just queen of the world and end up saying things that I totally regret.
That makes me thinking...what are some of the things that you wish you could redo?

So...the race is only 2 weeks away!

Hey everyone...I have turned into the worst blogger since my computer crashed. I had such an amazing weekend with all of my girlfriends as I threw such an amazing shower for my best friend, Chrissy!!! Needless to say, Chrissy and her sis, Cindy...had a very interesting trip from Nashville to B'ham for the party. What turned from a 2 1/2 hour drive turned into a 28 hour trip trying to get here!!! Who knew a blizzard would be hitting Tennessee and Alabama...really what are the odds? We had friends and family flying from all over so the party was going to have to happen no matter what. I will be posting pics from the amazing party!!!'s officially less than two weeks away to our race. Since we had friends staying in every inch of our house we were not able to run the PRACTICE HALF RUN Saturday, which of course makes me completely stressed out. I had to break it to my coach and tell him that I haven't run since last Wednesday but he made me feel great and said that I would be great!
