Ok, so I am stuck! Stuck at a place between mile 13 and mile 17......but I just can't seem to get to Mile 18! But, I know I can do it.......I just am mentally stuck!

So, here's the solution (actually, it was Scott's idea!):

NO EXTREME MOOSE TRACKS UNTIL MILE 18!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GASP! Shock! Yikes! Yes, that's right! Now, I love this stuff. I mean love it. Yes, smarty pants, I WOULD marry it!

So, I made this little ring around the ice cream using my Crop Suey kit, and it is there until..........until I make it to mile 18!

Now.....I am motivated like never before!

Pray for my friend...........

If you have a heart........and a second.........please pray for my friend, Becca.

She has just learned that her boys, of eleven months, will be returned to their biological mother next week. Please pray that God's will be done in this situation, and pray for Becca and her hubby, that they will lean on HIM for guidance.

Bless her.

Ok, I don't care who you are........this is funny!

My mom showed me this...........hilarious! And, to think......he knows EVERY SINGLE MOVE!

Man, I freakin' wish I had half of her rock hard body!

Happy Birthday to HIM! 35...........and still hot as evah!

And, you wonder where my kids get their personality! No joke! This guy is good stuff!

Ok, so I could post 35 things I love about him, but there are really about 75 things, so I will wait til he's a little older!

I could post 35 things that are a sign that he is OLDER than me........but, I will save myself the time to dig those up!

I could post some very tragic pictures of when he was younger and so skinny, and lanky, and awkward........but then he MIGHT return the favor and do that to me one day

So, instead, I will just profess my ridiculous obsession with him here:

"Ok, so you know, there is this super cute guy, and I, like, totally wish he would be hot for me, because, like, you know, I am so totally hot for him. I mean, when I look at him, like, I just wish I could be near him,and like, when I think about him, I totally want to make out with him. And, then, like, I turn on the radio, and like, I hear this super cool sweet song about how good love is, and like, I totally think about him, and then I get super hot for him,and then, like I just want to call him, and hear his voicemail pick up, so that, like, I can just hear his voice. Like. Do you know him? Scott Smith...........super fine!"

Yep, you got it. That's MY man! Happy Birthday, honey!

Set your TiVo...............

Well, i have mine set for sure! So, we went, and it was LIVE!

She said, "Welcome everybody........we are Live from Chicago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Ah, that was great stuff! No joke!

And, after the first show (Will Smith and Rosario Dawson!) we stayed for a second taping. (we had seen the screening of the new movie the night before!)

Now, I could give a play by play about how Kristin got in the line, and Susie and I hopped in a cab, dashed into our hotel room, packed like maniacs, got back in a cab, headed for Harpo Studios (luggage in tow) and hopped out, stashed our luggage in the office at the Oprah Boutique, ran across the street to get in the line, and barely made it!!!!!!!!! Then, we were let into the studio, and the second taping began! Great fun! Amazing, talented kids!

And, then..........she says something like "well, Sprint wants our audience to keep in touch with their talented they are giving everyone a BRAND NEW SAMSUNG INSTINCT phone"


Crazy, Crazy good times!

Then, we hopped out of the studio and headed over to the Oprah Boutique to do some shopping! Too much fun! Oprah stuff everywhere, and the best part is that ALL of the profits go to the Angel Network! Good Stuff!

So, then, jetted over to the airport, and headed home!

Good Times, I tell ya, Good Times!

I can't wait to see the show tomorrow!

2 months away...........

And I am feeling defeated!

Just for a day, I suppose, but none-the-less, I do feel that way today! I guess that is the ups and downs of the training.

So, I set out for my "long run" today, and I only made it 12 miles. Yikes. 12 miles. And, I know that is great.......I mean, just a few short months ago, I would have killed for 12........but, that being said, I still have more to go.

My feet hurt, my toes felt like they were all broken at the joint, my knee, oh, my right knee. My hip, my back was throbbing, and it was ultra cold. So, I just could not get warmed up.

So, 6 miles short of my goal, I stopped. Yes. Just dead stopped in the road, and turned around. To WALK home (oh, the horror, I walked!)

I felt defeated for the entire 2 mile walk home. UGH!

So, I began to talk to my pshyche, and to listen to God. You know what:

I press toward the mark. I will not be defeated.
I can do ALL things!
My chains are gone, I've been set free.
God with us. God with us.
Jesus, bring your rain.
I have been tested, and when I am finished, I will come through pure as gold.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be his name.

***********So............tonight, as I sit, after my very unproductive and defeated Veteran's Day.............I am reminded that with only 2 months away, I have trained, and I have trained my body, and am only 9 miles short of my goal! My training is right on target, and I will see this thing through.

Every day CAN'T be a good running day, and I will grab my ipod, and try again another day! And, yes, I WILL do it!

(oh, and I think I'll run over to Fleet Feet tomorrow and get some new shoes: just in case!)

2 months and counting! Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Remember this?!

Well, guess what...........we fly out in the morning....going again! Someone pinch me! I can hardly believe it! It's gonna be the best!

And, we are going to a private movie screening! I won't give too much info now, but you might want to tune into the show Thursday! Hint, Hint!

Ok, lots of bags to pack, boys to get ready, hubby to smooch on, and laundry, oh the laundry!

Good stuff!

The best 11 years of my life!

Spent with one man!

I love him:

1. He checks me out........and I like it!

2. He loves our boys.

3. He prays for me, about me, with me and over me.

4. He loves his mother and that is an admirable trait. I hope my boys take that after him:)

5. He kisses like a ............well, I can't say that, cause then everyone would be jealous! But, let me say.........I like to kiss him.......(with my tongue!)

6. He is smokin' hot!

7. He sings........and it is the sweetest thing I've ever heard. I just close my eyes most of the time, and soak it up.

8. He cares. About everything. His closet, his pastor, his friends, my family, our nieces and nephews, the country, babies, my scrapbooking, our children's friends, and everything in between. He is genuine.

9. He is so thoughtful. He notices the little things.

10. He loves me very unselfish-ly........even when I am not love-worthy. For real.

11. He is still with me, and 11 years later, wow! There is something to be said for this man!

Scott, you are my hero! You know it. And, I can't wait for more!
