Crazy BUSY Life!

Hey guys, sorry I have totally NEGLECTED my blog lately... :(
Since school started, life for me has been non-stop! Dental Hygiene school..... Study, STUDY, study!
Although it seems like I have done nothing BUT studying... I have been up to a lil more than just that. I'm glad I finally found some time to catch y'all up on what's been going down! :)
First off...
Last weekend was RACE weekend for me. My first ever 1/2 marathon!:)
Although waking up at 4am to run 13.1 miles does not sound like fun, it really was! I cant wait to do another one! And then eventually be able to scratch off "Run a full marathon" off my bucket list.
Here's some shots from the trip...
Day 1… Pick up our numbers and everything we need for the race, and then go SHOPPING!!

Unfortunately, shopping didn't turn out how I had wanted it to!! I got to the point that I was just looking for the most hideous outfit to try on for a laugh… Jessica and I definitely got a laugh out of this jumper thingy? YUCK! What is going on with the trends this season???…
Day 2… RACE DAY!! starting at 4 a.m. YIKES!
My running buddy Jessica and I- still 1/2 asleep- trying to wake the HELL up!! You cant run asleep people!

The best part of Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon’s…. the concert!! Brett Michaels- not bad.
As for this weekend…
Mike was chosen to race the NASCAR simulator for a chance to win a trip to Miami. We woke up early this A.M. and went to check it out.

He got 1st place!!! So far no one has beat him yet!!! YAY!
As long as no one beats his time by 6p.m. tonight that trip is OURS!!! How awesome would that be??!! Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Then it was time to take Mike’s new toy out for a spin.

But first, I NEEDED a helmet! Mike already made it clear to me that I was not allowed to get a pink one. Damn, he knows me to well!!! And there were some nice pink ones. Sad smile He wins… I ended up getting a shiny black one. I was so excited to get my very own helmet, I wore the thing all the way back home….

I am a dork. OH!…but I do have a plan…. As I said, Mike stated that I could NOT get a pink helmet Sad smile…. BUT he never said I couldn’t put hot pink stickers all over it (my plan)… and maybe I win! HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Tonight we will be stuck to the TV as we get to watch our HOGS play! For those of you that don’t already know…. We are HUGE Arkansas Razorback FANS!!
WOOOOO PIG WOOOIE!!
 
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!!
Toddles!

I so want to run in some sort of marathon. I think I would die, but it would definitely be an accomplishment to be proud of. Good job!

LOVE the helmet! My husband's best man just got a bike. And he has been pushing my husband to buy one. Maybe sometime in the future. I would totally rock a cute biker vest.

I hope you guys won that trip to Miami. It is gorgeous down there. They have some of the best beaches. Which I know you will be a huge fan of.

Glad to hear all is well, and you didn't get swept away by Irene. :)

2 hours and 9 minutes is awesome! I'm so proud of you girl! That is also pretty amazing that y'all won the Nascar trip. Jesse is going to be so jealous. :)
