Pedicure or Pac Meeting?

Pedicure please! 
Jesse had Scout Pac meeting last night while my Mom and I decided to go get pedicures done! 
I would of gone with Jesse but...I think he enjoyed Pac meeting more! :)
My Mom is officially doing the Top of Utah Marathon with me! YAH!!
She is the reason why I have any desire at all to run a marathon.
All growing up my Mom would get up early and go to the gym or running in the mornings.
She has ran over 16 marathons! 
(My Dad has also run some as well)
She thinks she is a little old for it. But we push each other!
Our feet were already not very pretty-from soccer and running for me.
Lets just say there was a pretty big pile of dead skin from taking our calluses off!- TMI??
With all this training our feet will be pretty bad by the end of summer again.
I love my Mom and it was so good to spend time with her especially getting a pedicure!

 Lately I have been thinking more about my life
How grateful I am for it.
No specific event or occurrence has cause this.
I don't know if its because of 
the longer runs I have been going on and we have time to reflect..
or maybe the fact that I am out of school and have more free time to think..
or the longer showers I have been taking because we have hot water now..
or maybe because I just need to be reminded of how blessed I am.
I have gone through my share of trials. 
Many nights crying. Some times not wanting to live anymore...
But that all has brought me to where I am now.
I can't say I would want to go through some of the things I have again
and I still don't know what is suppose to be learned from some of them
but I am glad they happen.
I have learned and I have grown.
I am becoming who I need to be through them.
One thing I know for sure is that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me.
It might not have everything I would want in it..
thoughts have crossed my mind about how it would be taking out and adding a few things..
but I wouldn't change it.
I am grateful for where I am at
and excited for where I can be.

Mother's Day Weekend

This past weekend felt pretty busy but at the same time I feel like I should have gotten a lot more done. That happens quite often. 
Friday we went up to Logan and hung out with some good friends-Jordan and Kylie
Jesse and Jordan talked about business while Kylie and I talked about Nursing! ha
We wanted to go to a Logan original..
We went up to Logan to do some work on our car. Saturday morning we took it in for a tune up. We figured it would take a good 3-4 hours. (which ended up taking over 6 hours in the end..) I really wanted to get a new shirt for summer so we went to the DI then Ross, TJMaxx, DownEast, then the mall...and I got Nothing! pretty pathetic waste of time. Either I am too cheap or their really was nothing worth the money to buy. bummer. Better luck next time. Jesse said it could be a sign that I shouldn't buy anything and we should save??..but he was a good sport to go everywhere with me. (since we had nothing else to do ;) )
But we did enjoy the nice weather on Saturday and hit up the golf course also while waiting for our car.
That wasn't a waste of time! :)

Saturday night BBQ at the Jensen's! We ate always! But hopefully that will change. As the Jensen's we are starting our own Biggest Loser this week and it will go till August when we go to Lake Powell. I am hoping this will motivate us to eat better, exercise more and lose weight! Thanks Dallin and Megan for the great idea! And on that note..I signed myself up today to run my first marathon. Top of Utah in Logan this fall. Call me crazy-Let's hope this training does me well.

Macie, my niece, has been so fun to play with lately. She is so cute! She is at that age when she says and does the funniest things! She is getting so big. And I can't believe we will have another nephew here real soon! :)

Sunday was at my Mama's! and I forgot to get a picture with her on Mother's day!

She is great! Like a best friend. I talk to her about everything..and maybe too much sometimes! but I sure do love her so much!
