Love Your Body 5K with the sisters!

Katie, me, Suzanne, and Darci

Yesterday, Suzanne, Darci, Katie and I did a 5K at Sugarhouse Park. I have wanted to do 5K's and 10K's, half, and maybe even someday a whole marathon for a long time, but...never have. Well, obviously I am not in the best shape of my life, or even close to it, so it was the Perfect time right?! Well...I walked it, but I did it. It is a little jump start to some of the things I want to do in my life, and we had a great time! Suzanne, and Darci(my two younger sisters) ran and did a great job. Katie(my SIL who is a sister to me) was kind enough to walk with me. She kept me marching up those killer hills and helped me reach both of the goals I set for myself. I am so glad that Sue invited me to do this 5K with her, and I am glad that I got to do it with some of my sisters! This is just the beginning for me!

I'm thankful for my Mom today...

She has done so many things for me; especially in the last few years. She has taken care of me and my family numerous times as I have been recovering from back issues. She is a great example of charity. I hope I can return the favor and serve her and others. She is an awesome grandma. My kids love having her around and all of the fun that comes with her. She taught me about being a Mother and I am so grateful that I get to be a stay-at-home home. I know it is a huge blessing, and one that she didn't always get to have, but she made the best of it. She has shown me, that life is not always perfect, but we make the best of it. It is imperative to keep going forward and progressing. That is happiness. She is such a great Mother and I love her so much and I hope she knows how important she is to me. She is beautiful on the inside and out.
Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Help me find some balance :)

I need some balance in my life. I really do. There are SO Many things, worthwhile things even, that I need to be doing, but I can't find the time to do them. I get stuck in a rut, and it is Hard for me to climb on out. So for awhile, I can be really good at making great dinners, and then that kind of slacks a little, and then reading scriptures and prayers, and then its spending time with my kids, or getting to the temple and dates with Jess, then, I can blog really well for a few weeks ;), and then I put that on the back burner and I am good at cleaning and then spending time doing something else for awhile. WHY?! I don't know, but I know that I want/need more balance in my life. I have big changes going on right now, and I have a lot to be thankful for. I want to be able to do some of the things I think are important all in the same day ;) do YOU have balance?

I have more on this subject, but I want to hear your thoughts first. ALL of you! Even if you have never commented before! Loves ;)

Not--so--Sunny California

We are here in beautiful Southern California and the weather is not quite cooperating! Oh don't get me wrong, we are still having a Great little vacation, but it has been chilly this week here in Cali. We went to the beach in Malibu on Tuesday, and after a few hours, the clouds rolled in and we rolled out, and we haven't been able to get back to the beach since! We are so thankful to get to spend a little quality family time together, as we don't get to see much of Jess since he is in school. We are having a GREAT time and hoping that Vegas proves to be a little warmer when we are there over Easter weekend! We will post pics of our trip when we get home!

Okay...So it has been awhile. I don't know what happened. I just needed a little blogging break. I know, I should have told you before I left. I am here now! It seems like a lot of people have needed a break. So anywaysies...what have we been up to....
Jess-still working and going to school. He is super busy!
Me-boring you with this uninteresting post.
M-into basketball right now. Tonight at practice, he was totally showing off. He was so cute and so proud. He told me he is the best on his team! He has a good self-esteem!
L-into dance and being a major help to me. She does whatever I ask her to, and she even offered to scrub the kitchen floor for me! She knows how much I love a scrubbed floor!
A-dancing too, and keeping busy trying to be big. She asks me random things like " Why did Heavenly Father give us a tongue?" and today she asked me what fine means. Like "I am fine."

We are getting excited to have spring come. We went to Bear Lake a couple of weekends ago, just to get away. It was so fun. We stayed at some condo's and took our friends with us. That made us more antsy for nicer weather.

My mom came and stayed with us for a few days last week. It was fun to have her, and she helped me get some things organized. I don't think organizing ever ends. One day, that weekness of mine will become a strength. I Hope!

I promise I will be back soon with some more interesting posts, I think I am ready to blog again, and lets be honest, facebook has lost some of its "new and exciting" so now I will have more time!
