For all you people who think boys are the ultimate prize in the baby race, you’ve never gotten to have this kind of fun:
That’s right. Girls are awesome and this little lady is the awesomest of them all ♥ As you can tell, Beanie has started flexing her independence and wanting to dress herself, which is fine except people are beginning to wonder if Ace Ventura is her father. Hey, I couldn’t care less if this is how she wants to run around, as long as she eats her veggies and still gives us hugs before she goes to bed every night ☺
Happy Friday, y’all!

First off – Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!! I hope your day has been spectacular and I hope you get some type of rest and relaxation 🙂
Back in January, I said I wasn’t going to make any resolutions. I swore off of them because I never stick to them. Instead, I said I was going to make monthly resolutions consisting of things I could actually accomplish. In Feb, my SIL and I decided we were going to go back to Couch To 5K and attempt to complete it. I finally did it. I must have started this program three times (probably more) and I finally finished it. It definitely wasn’t in 8 weeks, I mean, it was all I could do to work FT, be a mom FT, be a wife FT, and take online classes but I managed.
Today, I ran my first 5K ever.
Mariner Mother’s Day 5K
This was, by far, my fastest time ever. Go figure, the only person I knew there (that was running, E and Beanie came to cheer me on) was the UPS man that delivers to my work. We didn’t run together but I’m pretty sure he beat me. Story of my life.
The course was exactly what I thought it was. It wasn’t pretty but I finished. And I’m still alive, that’s a bonus. I survived and I’m already planning the next run. I think I can honestly call myself a runner now, even if I do get out ran by old men.
The rest of the day has been a lazy one but that’s a typical sunday for us. Although I did get an awesome card from Beanie
Mother’s Day 2013
She even got dressed up for me 😉 because, you know, you can never have too many tutus on. At once. And shoes on the correct feet? Overrated!

I’ve made some major strides with my running lately
Run through town on 4.29.13
Run through town 5.1.13
Rin through town 5.4.13
The times are getting better and the distance is getting better as well. I guess practice does make perfect but moreover —
I REGISTERED FOR MY FIRST EVER 5K!!
I’m super excited and nervous all at once but shoot, 3 friends of mine just did a half-marathon, I think I can handle this. At least I hope so.
