This, that, and then some more of something else

Hollywood Half Marathon

Have you ran any marathon's lately? I get this from my boss all the time. I laugh, it's not like I like to run, because I really don't. I only do it for the photo opportunities. Really.
Matt, me, Mark, and Susie 
Taken at zero dark in the morning. Always great seeing a friendly face in the morning.

And here were are with Irene. Irene was my 'Lets do this thing' partner that day. Had such a great day with her.

It was great running through Hollywood. I kept thinking here I am running with someone who doesn't drink, and here all I could think about is drinking. Hey there were all these cool bars I had heard about and had been wanting to try, and now I know where they are at. Even though my doctor said no more drinking. BUT I don't drink everyday, it's more social. I just love hanging out with friends. OK yes I am making excuses, but whatever...I love Jesus but I drink a little. LOL. Yes you had to be there.

If this doesn't motivate you, then nothing will. At this point when I saw these guys it was at mile 11/12. It was ALL Uphill towards the end of the race.

Then just random photos. 

 Sweet messages from Mark. I sent him a message saying I was proud of him. 
 The Medal.
 A must need, a pair of sparkly race legs from Team Sparkle!
He was so happy here. I love his smile. I love him.

It was a great day spent with amazing people.


Not sure if I mentioned it yet, but maybe not. I got chosen to be part of my local stores design team. Remember When Scrapbooking.

I went to my first team meeting a few weeks back and .... was totally intimidated! Why? Because I haven't done this in so long. Don't get me wrong I scrapbook, I do it for me. But doing it for someone else is kind of nerve wrecking. Well those were my thoughts. But now I'm all about the challenge

I hosted my first make and take, and I think it went well. I smiled. I chatted. Big Thumbs Up.

I even scrapped a few pages. If you have ever scrapped next to me, you would see I pull out things and put things away, I hate clutter. I do this at crops, but at home it's a different story.

Here are a few of the pages I created. 

A fun night in Hollywood going beer tasting. So I wonder, am I the only one that still uses her plastic alphabet pattern. All I know is that font is called watermelon.


It was an Unofficial official beerathon. The actual event was cancelled by the ABC. Fudgers right, but it didn't spoil our weekend. With map in hand and beer specials to be had..We still had an amazing night. I pulled out my Fuji Instax camera and had a blast.

This layout was left simple on purpose. Aren't they just adorable!!
My scraproom has crappy lighting. The original, in my opinion, is beautiful. My nephew Zach, is watching Mark and his nephew play basketball. He was so eager to go play. It was just adorable watching him watch them.
 go go go
Each time my parents come home and he sees them he starts saying "Go, Go, Go." Meaning take me outside in my little car.

More Photos because I can't get enough of them

Me and Zach

Mark taking Zach for a walk around the pool. Can you believe this kid is only 13 months old!! He is so big.
baby love. He smiled when he saw his momma coming to get him.

Scarlett - she will eat just about anything I eat. Here I had to share my PB & J sandwich with her.
For whatever reason she was just being a total fuss ball. So I asked if I could stick her in the bath with bubbles. Even with little ones, all you need is a bubble bath to make things all better.
