I did it! 5.2 miles

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'm looking forward to our run next Saturday.  WAREAGLE!!!

Early Morning Run

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!

It's been a while

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.

My brother, Josh, had back surgery and Parker wanted to take a picture.  

Walking with Hannah and Emilee, my two nieces. 

On our way to school!  Such a sweet boy!

Fun at the park!

Have a great week!

Five for Friday

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!!!
