Colorful Dinner...

Last Sunday I made dinner....I know, some of you are probably shocked! BUT, you would be even more shocked to know that it turned out incredibly delicious! I made stuffed shells with steamed green beans, and a strawberry-spinach salad with pecans. As I was cutting veggies Wayne stopped me and said, "Hold it right there! Don't move anything!" He ran and snagged the camera from upstairs and took this pretty cool shot of the food! I didn't quite see it when it was on the cutting board, but once I saw the pic, I really saw the artistic side of it!

Let Them Eat Cake!!!!

Ok, so I have really been trying to avoid sweets since my marathon is only weeks away......but it was my birthday!! I found the most AMAZING oreo cake at the grocery store and just had to have it! Everyone seemed to enjoy it just as much as I did! I guess I don't feel TOO guilty eating it considering I have to do a 12 mile run tomorrow!

Happy Birthday To ME!!!!

So my birthday is today...February 22nd! Last night Wayne arranged to have some of our Carmax buddies get together at a local BBQ pit for dinner. Wayne even went so far as to make invitations! :) We hang out with these crazies quite a bit and there is never a dull moment! We ended dinner by singing and eating Oreo Cake...my favorite! The best part of it all??......my brand spanking new digital camera that Wayne bought me!!!! It is SOOOO incredibly awsome and I can't wait until the Spring when I can take it hiking!!!! Thank you Wayne! I love you!

I Guess it Was too Cold Outside!

Last Saturday I went out for an "easy" 8 mile run. I took my runner's belt which included two water bottles, some runners "Sport Beans," and my cell phone. An hour and a 15 minutes later I came back with one less water bottle.....the jarring from running down a hill popped it out of my belt. I could tell as soon as it hit the sidewalk because my legs felt water splash all over them. I thought it somewhat humerous considering I had only run about a mile! I wasn't too concerned about dehydration since I still had the second bottle, and the weather was fairly cool. I can honestly say that I have never had this happen before! I guess there is a first time for everything!
