Who loves daddy?

Last Saturday I worked from 10am-10pm so Jules was home with Brett all day. Since then, they have been inseparable. He would just put his head up to her and she would give him a big hug...over and over to pose for the picture. It's so cute how they play together.

Jules got up on the table and I gave her a fork to go at it with the chocolate cake.
We always go camping over Memorial Day weekend but this year my parents were on vacation in China so we decided to go for Labor Day Weekend instead. Jules loved riding on the four wheelers. All the kids have to use helmets but there isn't one small enough for Jules so here she is testing one out anyway. She wasn't a huge fan. Holding her is my niece Brook who Jules just loves. When those two are together, they are inseparable.
Did you all know that fall is here? Yesterday as I was running errands I looked up at the mountains and realized the trees are turning colors? I couldn't believe that I hadn't noticed it yet. Then I remembered that earlier that day I noticed that Jules had 3 molars that I didn't know about. She now has 11 teeth and all this time I thought she only had 8. I guess they call me Spacey for a reason. I do have to admit that I haven't really been all there for the past little bit.

I would like to thank all 2 of you for coming to my Tupperware Party last week, yes I said 2. I still haven't closed the party so if there is anyone interested in anything just let me know before Friday. Can't beat the life time warranty!

Tupperware Party this Wednesday

Do you hate throwing rotten produce away? I hate that strawberries only last 2 days, carrots only last 2-3 weeks and the list goes on. There is now a solution to help it last longer, stay fresher and more crispy and it's called Tupperware. So it's really late notice and I really hate these type of partys but here I am throwing a Tupperware Party . The party will be this Wednesday the 10th from 7-9pm. Sadly, for our wedding we didn't get much tupperware so 2 1/2 years later I am still in need and this will help me out a lot. If you would like to come see their latest stuff, come on over, and see our new place too. If you need our address please e-mail me at Something about putting my address where anyone can see it is a little creepy, so e-mail and I can give you more details. I would love to see any one of you that check this blog on a regular basis. Oh and I'll be sure to make some yummy refreshments!

1/2 Marathon/Fox 13 News

I did it!!! This is me rounding the corner with about 25 feet left to go.

Me and Kyle after the race.
Brett's dad, Ross, waiting with Jules for me to come. Kyle had already made it about 9 minutes before me.
Me and Kellie who went through more than her share of problems along the way. Sterling, my brother, was supposed to do it with her but his knee started giving out on him so he had to quit about 2 weeks before the marathon. He also had his appendix taken out in the middle of the training so it's probably for the better that he didn't run it.

It was one of the best running experiences I have had. It started out with me, Kellie, and Kyle, who I did my long run training with. We all got split up in the 1st mile because there were so many people. If we got past one person we just kept going. We were all able to run at our own paces and made our goal times even though we didn't see each other the whole rest of the way. I did really well and was feeling great until about mile 9 which lasted for about 3 miles I swear. My goal was to just finish and if I got lucky it would be under 2 hours. I got 1:56 minutes which I was very happy with. I was sore for about 2 days but then felt fine. My heroes along the way were this lady who had a sign on her back that said "Running for 2, due in March". She's crazy, I tried running a lot when I was prego and didn't make it very far. Good for her though. The other best part was signs that families had written along the way encouraging their loved ones. It encouraged everyone a bit. My least favorite from them was "That was the easiest 10 miles I've ever driven". I was able to laugh about it, but at the same time I wanted to shoot them. I would definitely do the Hobble Creek 1/2 marathon again. As for a career in full marathons, I'm going to have to say "no way!" 13.1 miles is enough for me.

As for another note of success. Brett was on Fox 13 morning news a couple of weeks ago for his a cappella group. Check them out
