30 Days of Thanks!

Looks like I got a bit behind on my 30 days of Thanks! Time to catch up! :)

Day 5:
I am Thankful for my parents! I am so blessed to have the Mom and Dad I have! I was blessed to be able to have a stay at home  mom that was very active in my  life. I also had a wonderful Father who  was always there to support me in everything I did. I was very active in Band (yes, I was the biggest band nerd you could find, lol) and they both were there for every competition & football game. They went above and beyond helping, They weren't just there to watch, they did almost everything to help! My dad built things and worked booths and my mom cooked and did TONS of decorating! I loved every minute having them there. My mom and dad paid for and did almost everything for my wedding. It was a fabulous wedding and I don't think it could have been any better without them making it happen! These are only the smallest of things my parents have done for me over the years. Since I have been married, my mom and I made weekly trips to the grocery store, and now that I live 6 hours away, she sends me packages of goodies in the mail. My dad would always come to my rescue when I had car issues. :) I'm sure I could go on and on about how wonderful they are, but I guess I should stop. :) I am just so Thankful and blessed to have them in my life. I love you mom and dad! :)

Day 6:
I am thankful for my in-laws! God blessed me with the best in-laws. Cody and I have been together for almost 10 years and in those 10 years I have been welcomed into their family like I was one of their own! I am incredibly lucky! Not only do I get goodies in the mail from my mom, I get goodies in the mail from my mom-in-law as well! When we lived closer, my mom-in-law would always surprise me with little "Happy's". Whether it was a cute notepad, body lotion, or anything else, it was always a very nice surprise! :) My Father-in-law is always looking out for us. He is a "researcher" of sorts. He is always looking for the best of everything for his children. I am so thankful for the new family in my life!

Day 7:

I am Thankful for my puppies! They are teaching me responsibility before I have my own children! They are also teaching me patience every time they pee on the floor, or bark until I want to kill them. HaHa :) They make my life happy. I am never lonely and there is never a dull moment with them around! To bad I had to lose a couple of flip flops from them both. The puppy stage is a killer! I enjoyed having Samson for 4 years before we got She-Ra, but I think She-Ra is a great lil addition to our family! :)

Hope everyone had a great day with the extra hour of sleep! :)
One good thing about having puppies and not children yet, is they don't wake up at a specific time! They would sleep all day if they could! :)
So I enjoyed my extra hour of sleep this morning! :)

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have

Starting over with something new.

Way back in 2012 I started running...for reals... I ran my first Virtual Half Marathon in June and then in the Fall, I started meeting up with a Moms RUN This Town friend 3-4 days a week to walk/run 3-4 miles with our kiddos in the stroller. We started training for the Cowtown Half Marathon and I started dropping weight. By December, I had lost 35 lbs (this was total since having Sophie, not just in 2-3 months) and I looked the best I had looked in a very long while. Then I ran the Cowtown Half in February of 2013, hurt my hip, stopped running, walked the Dallas Rock N Roll Half a month later and then stopped running for good until August of 2013. I then started trying to pick it up a bit here and there while also participating in Stroller Strides.  The thing is...I started gaining weight once I stopped running. Didn't matter if I was doing stroller strides. I just kept getting bigger. First it was just 10 lbs. I kept it at that 10 lb weight gain from August until January
