To keep myself motivated, I’ve been running 5ks. Mike’s high school reunion is coming up in June so I have to be ready!

 Winking smile

My goal is to run 3 miles as fast as I did in high school. My last timed race was 26.36 so I have to get about 5 minutes faster. Maybe by the end of the year? I’m running the Race for Autism in Balboa on Saturday. Can’t wait!


Oh, do you like my running skirt? My wonderful hubby bought it for me along with another pink one. Okay, another story:

The Thursday before my birthday, Michael told me that he found out about a trail in Encinitas that he thought I might like to run while he took the boys to play at the beach. Kinda skeptical, I agreed to give it a try.

So, he ends up taking me to the store in Encintas. They were having a Valentine’s party and had us run 2 miles with a partner with our arms tied together. running skirtsWell, my partner and I got second place and won a free skirt! So awesome. Then they all sang happy birthday to me! Wow what a spontaneous and amazing evening. Such a fun birthday gift. Thank you Michael. I love you.

Boyz II Men


As if the shoes and the apron weren’t enough, my mom also took my sis and I to see Boyz II Men as part of our birthday present.

Let me just start by saying that I’ve always wanted to see them in concert. I absolutely love their music and I always have since junior high, but really got into them in high school. I mean, who doesn’t like their music? Their songs are classic.

Needless to say, the concert was amazing. They are great performers and I would go see them again in a heartbeat. Here are a few pictures from that night. Thank you again, Mom, for making one of my dreams come true!

Kelli Thorson was in town, so we went to the zoo. It’s crazy how we both started out here in San Marcos as Newlyweds and now, 5 years later we both have 2 angels. I’m so glad we are still friends after all this time. Love you Kelli!
