Get the Lead Out

I've decided that it's time to get in shape. Damon says, "Finally!" I have maintained my pre-baby weight for the past year but that's about 20lbs more than what I should be. I've started walking the track at UTPB which is about 2.6 miles and trying to make better food choices. My clothes are already starting to get a little baggy. It's a great feeling! I have a goal to be able to run a 10K next March. Considering I haven't run a mile since I was in college, getting ready to run a 6 mile stretch will definitely be a challenge. Of course this will necessitate getting a new "work-out" wardrobe and finding a good sports bra is a daunting task. Wrestling with spandex is almost a work-out in itself!

Shake Things Up

Big changes are in the works for me over the next few weeks. First - next Wednesday I will wrap up my pre-reqs for the Texas Tech BSN program. I should be a Red Raider this fall! Guns Up!!! Second - I applied for a new job at MCH. It's with the Cardiac Rehab Center so I would be back to patient centered nursing care with more family friendly hours and a lot less stress. There will be a pay cut but the positives vastly out weigh any $ amount. I'll get to be home for dinner every night and I'll only have to work 1 weekend a month. Hopefully the interview process will begin this week. It's fun to think about possibilities but much more exciting to plan for a definite future.

And I Quote...

Damon on our 9th Anniversary - "I think this is going to work out. I think we're going to make it!"

Sidney when asked where she lives - "With Papas! In Kermit!"

Sidney after getting in trouble - "I'm gonna be sad!"

Blue-bonnet Browsing

Blue-bonnets were my mom's favorite flower and I'm so glad we were able to get some pictures of them when we were in Austin. Sidney wasn't especially cooperative with our photo shoot but we had a lot of fun running through the flowers.

Rachel's Austin Shower

Last weekend we went to Austin for Rachel's wedding shower. It was so good to see all our family and friends. Aunt Pam hosted the shower at their beautiful new home. Can't believe Rachel will be a "Mrs." in a month!

Sid had so much fun finding Easter eggs this year. She didn't want to carry her basket so she would run and find the eggs then carry them back.

Cascarones! Sid wasn't very happy with Damon trying to break them on her head so we threw them at the garage wall. Fun but messy!
"Oh? I can eat them too?"
