I decided I would try and go to bed early since my alarm clock would be going off at 4:00am. I got in bed around 9 and was out by 10. I was so excited, yet very nervous. Would I be able to keep up? Would I make it back to my car? Those were just a few thoughts that were running through my head. I woke up at 1 and looked at my clock and then again at 2. Finally, my alarm went off and I jumped out of bed. Why is it that I jump out of bed at 4am but have to make my self get up at 6am for work?!? So I got up and took a quick shower, put on my clothes and made a Vi-shake for the road. I got there and met the group. Everyone was so nice. There were two other ladies running the 5 mile route so I stuck with them. The first 3 miles went by fast and I was doing awesome. After that My stomach started cramping. Note to self- don't drink a shake that consist of milk before a run, especially a long run. Yes, I was the one who had to make a stop behind a building. Luckily one of the ladies brought toilet paper. Ha, that's a first for me. After my pit stop, I was fine.

I have committed to run with a running group, Sole2Soul Sisters, starting Saturday morning at 5:00 AM! Yes, I said 5 AM. Am I crazy?!? Some will be running 10 miles and the rest will run 5 miles. I will be in the 5 mile group. I am nervous yet very excited. Like most moms, I put my child's needs before mine but its time for me to do something for myself. I have no energy which is because I haven't ran in 4 months. Lets pray I survive!

I've been MIA lately. Work has been busy and life has been crazy. I plan to blog more, but until then I will leave you with a few pictures.
Have a great week!

I don't know about you, but I'm sure glad it's Friday. It has been a long week. Parenting has been a struggle this week. No one told me it would be easy, but battling with an almost 3 year old is HORRIBLE!!! Parker doesn't want to listen to me and loves to back talk. He got so upset on Wednesday morning and had a temper tantrum all because he wanted to stay home from school and play with his monster trucks. Anyway, this should be a happy post, not a venting post, so here you go.
1- GIRL'S WEEKEND. I'm getting together with 5 of my closest girlfriends for a weekend at the beach. My friend Amy and her husband own a condo in Orange Beach so we will be staying there. I can't wait until 5:00 so I can head that way.
2- Parker and I had a date night. Lee fished in a tournament so I figured it would be nice to spend a little quality time with my special little boy. We ended our date with a cupcake from Twist!
3- On our Mommy/Son date, my child made a HAPPY PLATE! I was so proud of him. Happy plates are far and few between in our household.
4- I'm loving my new job. A few reasons-I can wear jeans on Friday, we have Kentwood water which means I drink 60+ oz per day, I have to be there by 8:30. These are a few of my favorite reasons this week!
5- It's AUGUST! Nothing major for the month but my baby niece starts kindergarten and my oldest niece will be a senior in high school. Chelsea was in kindergarten when Lee and I were dating. She was my heart from the first day I met her. Okay, starting to tear up thinking about her growing up.
Okay ladies, have a wonderful weekend!!!
