Yes...I know...

I am totally lame for not writing these past few weeks. I somehow just couldn't bring myself to write anything. I also would like to make a disclaimer...This blog is going to be more about my life now instead of just my running. Now that I live away from my families, I want them to be able to see what's going on in my life. Plus it is much easier to write about what I am living at the moment than just when I decide to run! So now with that said...I will continue! Christmas is coming soon and I am sooo excited about this! But right now, I am going to take this time to catch up on a few things. 

First...I never finished my 30 days of Thanks. 

I am going to do one last one. I struggled with this one just because I have so much to say and I don't want to write a whole paper that no one would read!

I am so very Thankful for my Husband. He is absolutely amazing. Yes, we have had our ups and downs, but that comes with being together for almost 9 years! We will celebrate 5 years or marriage in March and this amazes me! I can't believe it has already been 5 years! I still remember our 1 month "anniversary" in June of 2002. We were at Church camp and I gave him some of the lamest gifts! lol But we both knew then that we were going to get married. :) He has been there for me...put up with my crazy antics...and loved me for every minute of every day. He is amazing and I couldn't have asked God for a better Husband. I thank my Lord every day that I have with him. 
Cody, I Love you! :)
This is us on our 1 month "dating anniversary" in 2002.
We were so cute!
And so young!!! :)

Now on to less sappy stuff! :)

Thanksgiving 2010!
We were unable to go back "home" to see our families, so we had Thanksgiving with each other and this guy...

My "little" brother Jeff.
Cody and I made our first turkey...

Looks pretty yummy to me! And it was! :)

We also had plenty of sides...

Not so healthy, but they sure were yummy!
And Jeff made deviled eggs that were so good!

We also had a pumpkin pie and an Apple Crumb pie I made.
I forgot pictures of those, but they were soooo yummy!

I had made some pumpkin bread a week earlier.
It was sooo yummy! I decided to try it with wheat flour and it was so yummy! :)

We also made our first fire in our fireplace! :)

It was a great Thanksgiving, despite the fact we didn't get to see our parents.

Looks like we won't be making it home for Christmas either, so our parents are coming to see us instead! They will be coming at different times, but that's ok. I'm just excited to see them!

Until next time...

WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
