Tuesday Thoughts

This morning I debated staying in my jammies all day on my couch watching reality T.V while eating ice cream right out of the box. Doesn't that sound glorious?

 I put my big girl panties on and drove to work. Mainly because I have a hair appointment this afternoon. I CAN'T miss that. Priorities.

Cai and I booked our hotel for Hospital Hill Run KCMO I'm super excited for the girls weekend. The run terrifies me a little tiny bit.

I follow them on facebook and they had a post yesterday "If someone who had never done Hospital Hill Run had asked you to describe the event, how would you...?"
  • The most terribly awesome experience you'll love to hate!
  • It's called hospital hill for a reason but its a beautiful run
  • It's a challenge and the name is very fitting. However, the route is beautiful and the people in Kansas City are very supportive. They brought out hoses, ice, water, etc. to encourage the runners. I am proud to have checked this race off
  • At about the second mile is a Catholic church, "Our Lady of Perpetual Sorrows". If you ran those first two miles with your ego and not with your brains, the rest of the race will be Perpetual Sorrows
  • You must prepare!
    This is not a run to take lightly!
    Hill training will make or break u
Umm...I'm scared. But we can do it! We can do ALL things though Christ right? lol.. I'm sure there will be prayers, tears, and cursing.

St. Jude has announced their 2013 date.

I haven't decided if I'm going to do the full marathon or wimp out and stick with the half. The feeling I get when I reach the finish line at 13.1 is so beautiful. I can't imaging going another 13.1(that's my story and I'm sticking to it) I'll pretty much do whatever cia does. Because I'm 10 and I can't make my own decisions.

March 2013 marks 4 years for us in LR. I can't believe we've been here 4 years. It's starting to feel like home (minus the dry county part, the camo and the ridiculous amount of snakes) I no longer cry when we leave STL, I now call this my home, and our house has become a hotel I mean a home :)
I still secretly pray we get transferred back to STL or Dallas.

I'd like to give a shout to to my bestie Lauren. Even though she totally flaked out on running with me and Cia (she had an injury) I have to give kudos's to her and her weight loss.

Before: Still amazing and beautiful

She's totally going to kill me for using this picture.

Girlfriend has lost over 50 pounds! Doesn't she look great! I am so proud of her!
Lauren and I were college roommates, even though we went to different college. We instantly hit it off. It could have been our shared love for beer and Pointer's Pizza but what ev. She's my girl. I could not ask for a better friend. I call her for everything. She always knows what to say. She's the one I call when M is on my reserve nerve. She always talks me out of dipping his toothbrush in the toilet.  Lauren is beautiful inside and out. I miss her dearly.
I got this email from Cia today: It made me miss her too..
YOU are an AMAZING mother, friend, sister, and sole sista. Know God is with you, and I'm here if you ever need anything. An ear, prayer buddy, Babysitter, Dog Sitter, Albi, Cell mate. I got you covered. I LOVE YOU!

Wow I'm missing my girls, I think I need to plan a STL trip ASAP!

Happy Tuesday!



  1. Get your booty up to the Lou - miss your face! And I'm way more scared about Hospital Hill now. I like how you failed to mention this hill hell BEFORE you convinced me to sign up, haha!

  2. This is so crazy, I was going to suggest you run Hospital Hill!! I used to live in KC and it was the second 1/2 I ever ran. It.Is.AWESOME!!! There is practically a hill every mile. By far the most challenging run I've ever done, but crossing that finish line brought more sense of accomplishment than almost anything I've ever done (minus the delivery of my little man)! You're going to rock it!
    I'm actually debating whether or not I can fit a trip back home to run that...
    I can't wait to hear about your experience!

    1. So is it as bad as everyone says? Please say no... Lol! You should totally make the trip to KC!!!
