I don't have pictures of me in the marathon because well, I was running (or just trying to finish rather), but I wanted to say that I had a great time running the 1/2 Marathon on Saturday in Salt Lake. This is only my second race. Last year I did one in China. But I learned something, I love to race! So remember how sometimes I get crazy ideas? Well, at about mile 8.5 I was thinking of some goals that I wanted to set. I got what they call, "runners high" and found myself just running freely and happily (it lasted til about mile 11 where I started slowing down and hitting my "wall", but anyways...my thoughts turned to doing more racing. I am still kind of young, pretty healthy and I felt strong. So, I have set a new goal to run a marathon in all fifty states! I am excited about it for a couple of reasons. 1. Because I love to travel and would like to see parts of the country that I haven't been to, and 2. Because it keeps me motivated and I have no excuse not to stay fit.
So, that's it! All I need now is some friends to join me in the journey, was getting pretty bored running by myself on Saturday. Hint Hint. Wink. Wink.

easter basket exchange
if you know me you know that I heart my girlfriends to death. I got the idea to have an Easter Basket Exchange from my friends in Connecticut last year, so I decided to throw a little Easter party for my friends in Salt Lake. It turned out fabulous, mostly because of my lovely guests. We ate, laughed our heads off as we always do and exchanged easter baskets with one another! Shelly gave me the cutest basket in the form of a stuffed yellow purse, perfect for spring! Thanks Shell! I seriously can't emphasize enough how much their friendship means to me and how lucky I am to know each one of these ladies. They are stunning! Can't wait till the next party!
(Kristien, Kristen, Julie, Wendy, Jacey and Amy…we missed you! We'll catch you next time!)

Last weekend my adorable friend Shelly turned 30. We had a little bash for her and our friend Ben offered to bring the cake!
Um…not really sure what he was going for with this red headed rendition, but hey…it still tasted delicious!
happy birthday peggy ryshelle!
We love you to all the way to the moon!
