My husband and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary at midnight! When we got married, we started the party New Years Eve about 9:00 p.m., then said our vows just after midnight. It was so much fun and a great way to start every year.... Read more
I hate cold/wet/rainy

I was born and raised in Florida, south Florida to be exact. Sun shining, beaches, tank tops, flip flops, sparkling pools - you get it. All that, year round. My winter coat was a Levi's jean jacket that got used maybe 2-3 times for "chilly we... Read more

Ok, ok, I haven't been on Spark in ages. I fell off my wagon. I can list a lot of excuses, but I won't bore you with them. I am re-committing myself to getting back on track. My weight didn't suffer too badly - a gain of 2 pounds from my for... Read more
The stem cell transplant....

My aunt was diagnosed with lymphoma almost 8 years ago. It has been an off and on battle for her - times of being sick mixed with times of good health. In July, the bad news came that her cancer had become a more aggressive form. No more chem... Read more
I am a DORK, with a capital D!!!

The race pictures are online from my half marathon on 10/11. The photographer managed to get about 7 shots of me. I look like a DORK in every picture! Like, I could be Queen of the dorks. In my future races, I will run with a paper bag over m... Read more
My half report.... a week late!

Last Saturday was my half marathon here in my town. That 's a big deal as the races here in East Texas are VERY limited. I got up at 6:00. The race didn't start until 8:00. I wore my pink in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month. My DH got... Read more
Running my half in Pink!

Tomorrow is my half marathon. I can't believe it is here and I am very, very nervous! I just keep telling myself that the course is open for 4 hours and I can reach the finish line before they close it! Today I pick up my race packet. ... Read more
Camping, cancer and coolness!

My son and I participated in the Cub Scouts Mom and Me camp out this weekend. We had loads of fun. I wish I could say I got loads of sleep! Note to self - for next year, get a bigger tent and ear plugs. One of the ladies there has been ... Read more
What do you do for the cure?

My page has been updated to show my support. I am passionate about the cause - my Aunt Marchia is an 8 year survivor, my Uncle Mackie is a 20 year survivor (yes, men get BC, too), and my Grandmother lost her fight after her cancer metastasized ... Read more
Panic is setting in
Saturday, September 27, 2008      4 comments

Tomorrow I turn 38. That, surprisingly enough, is not the source of my panic. The half marathon I am committed to running on 10/11 is. Yup, that's 2 weeks away. Did I mention my longest run to date has only been 8 miles? I have given myself... Read more
Wax on, wax off

My bucket list is shorter. I was able to cross off "Get a bikini wax" this week. I had it done Tuesday morning. I still can't believe I did it. None of my friends have ever had it done, so they were looking to me to be the maverick. I don'... Read more
That's my butt.

Have I lost my mind or what? That's my butt! In a bathing suit. There it is, my new profile picture. It's looking pretty good, but better is around the corner. My half marathon is in 4 weeks. I am not ready! But, I guess I will be. ... Read more
Candy corn flavored WHAT?

So there I was, innocently checking out at Target. Out of the corner of my eye I see it, the Hershey's kiss display. Nice. DON'T LOOK I keep telling myself. You know - like a car wreck on the side of the road. You don't WANT to look, it is ... Read more
The day at the Water Park...
Sunday, August 17, 2008      2 comments

Today we went to a water park. It was a lot of fun and my kids had a blast! Last year, we went and I hated it. I was only about 15 pounds heavier than I am now but was out of shape. I wore baggy water shorts and just did not enjoy myself. T... Read more
What I really think about the scale....
Monday, August 04, 2008      1 comments

I recently read that a Sparker smashed the scale against the wall. All in the name of frustration. We've all felt frustrated - we work hard, eat right and the numbers don't move. We are all here on Spark because what we have been doing isn't... Read more
