new running shorts!

So, I finally found some new running shorts that are a "swishy type material". They worked SOOOO much better than my usual Sofee shorts. Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Sofee shorts, but they just don't work quite the way I need them to when I have sweat dripping off me. haha.

I'm so happy I decided to do this!

Working towards a goal has been great for me!

"Thank you Jesus for helping me with my goal."

Half-Marathon, HERE I COME!!!


Wednesday, July 14, 2010

it's official...

I'm officially registered for the Women's Half Marathon on September 25th!!!

I'm super pumped/nervous/excited because I workout ALL the time, but now I actually have a GOAL to work towards.

"I can do ALL THINGS through CHRIST who strengthens me!" - Phil 4:13

That is my FAVORITE verse, and it is going to help remind me through this whole thing that I can do anything with God's help!!!

Blake's new playground is bigger than McDonalds!!!

This thing is AWESOME. and yes, you better believe I was playing all over it with him!!!

I was seriously dizzy and my head started hurting, and thought I just might hurl!

road sign I saw...

so I was driving along and saw this sign on a church that really caught my attention:

Eternity is a long time to be wrong

This really made me disappointed in myself. I feel like I haven't been telling people about Jesus and all that He did for us enough lately. I mean, yes, I try to be a good witness, but I need to do more TELLING others about Jesus and His amazing love. If people don't hear about it, how else will they know? I hate thinking that I could be the ONLY person that somebody might have a chance to talk to about Jesus, and I let the opportunities just pass me by... I am going to work on this.

catching up...

where did June go?!?!? This summer is just FLYING by! I'm having a blast! :)

this week has been busy, which I love, because I would much rather be busy than bored.

Monday I watched Blake for a bit and at night Daddy treated me to dinner out. I picked ihop because I have been wanting to try something new...Strawberry Crepes. They were delicious! It was breakfast for dinner + dessert ALL IN ONE! YUM!

Tuesday I watched a new family so the mom could go to a job interview. They JUST moved here. They were so sweet. 6 and 7 year old + a 8 month old baby. When I was leaving, the little girl asked if I could come back tomorrow! It's times like those that I enjoy because I really feel appreciated. Then, I hung out with Robbie and Myrt. I rode the dirtbike for a while since Myrt got tired of it...let me tell you, that thing goes 50 mph! I was cranking it up as fast as it would go! I had so much fun! At night, I accompanied my daddy to a Rotary dinner banquet since my mom is at Kacy's tournament. (Always enjoy time with my Daddy, plus I like going to all those things with him because I get to meet important people and get my name out there for future references..haha)

Wednesday I hung out with Blake again. Then, my dad and I met Aunt Toni and Anna Kate for dinner at Dalt's in Nashville. I love trying new places and foods! :) We got the Queso Dip for an appetizer and it was soooo yummy!!! Then, I ate the Patty Melt for my entree. Good too!

and today I spent the day at the pool. Morning with just Myrtle, and then Robbie came after he golfed. it was fun! Myrt is so cute and was copying everything I did today for some reason. The water was FREEZING right at 10:00, so we both layed out and tanned. Later, we had fun swimming and playing in the pool. We even did our own version of "water aerobics". haha that was a hoot!

Nextrino Activated Charcoal Tea Tree Soap

I was sent some brand new soap from Nextrino to try and review! It is an activated charcoal tea tree soap that is all natural, vegan, and ...
