So Lets Face It

Image
I suck at keeping up with my blog...I always have good intentions..No excuses..

So what have I been up too...SO MUCH!...If you don't know me let me tell you one thing. I LOVE WARM WEATHER...I just love it. Sioux Falls has had amazing summer weather. So that means I am playing.A lot...But anyways let me catch you up from the last update.

After Princess I took a little break from running for a couple of weeks.Then I hit it hard again. I had a goal. I wanted to qualify for a special running group called Half Fanatics. After scouting all the races around and with moving and all I decided to set my goal on the easiest way to qualify. That was 3 races in 90 days. So with Princess being my first I set my sites on the St. Cloud half on Earth Day.

Well I tend to jump first then think. Yep..Did that....First off I was so twitter pated with Princess IN FLORIDA that I forgot the rest of the U.S. isn't having the same awesome weather. Do you know what April in Minnesota is like? I do and …

My Princess Recap

Wow its been a whirlwind of a month. Princess was EVERYTHING I dreamed it would be and more..Next year the full Glass Slipper Challenge! It was so hard not doing it all this year. I am glad I got one under my belt so I knew what to expect but talk about green with envy at all the 10k runners...



There are so many more pictures I could share so having to pic a few is so hard! The Expo to pick up our bibs was awesome! A lot less crowded then I have heard the past years have been. The process of packet pick up was basically painless...A little spread out and that resulted in multiple trips to different sections as some of the volunteers didn't actually know what they were doing..BUT they are just that volunteers. So no worries. We are there to run so a little bit of extra walking isn't the worst thing in the world.
After packet pick up we had fun with the back drops and posing. I wanted so badly to meet Jeff Galloway but the Rundisney booth was PACKED out. Thankfully I was able t…

Its Time!

Here's The Scoop

Image
When last I left you (lol that sounds SO much like a soap opera) we were headed to Sioux Falls to find a house..Boy I wish it were that easy! Nothing ever is lol.At least not for us.

So WH and I wasted no time and got to looking for a house. I had sent the realtor a list of about 8. One we deleted because when the realtor called to set up the appointment the owner said our timing was not convenient for her. If we couldnt wait a few extra days for the open house then she really didnt want to show it..Ummmm ok..BITE ME...No problem deleting that house...

Between house showings we scoured the city for a hotel to live in until we could close. Hoping and praying the owner of what ever house we found would let us rent.By the end of the first day I had found the PERFECT house..Seriously WH and I walked in the door and both new instantly it was the one..None of the others even came close.

Best part is that we do not want to change a THING about it! If you dont know us then you wont understan…

The NEW Me!

What do you think? This will be how I look for the next month......We sold our house...We not only sold our house but we sold it too people who paid cash and then said get out! Seriously.......W.H. calls and says are you sitting down? I say great what happened now and do I need to bail someone out of jail? He says we sold our house and have to be moved out on the 28th.......Um WHAT?!?!

We have not gotten pre-qualified for another house. We havent even found one actually...We were supposed to have 60 -120 days...Right?....Well evidently not.So Sunday W.H. and I are zooming down to Sioux Falls and in 3 days we are finding a storage unit, getting pre-qualified, AND finding a house...Most likely I will also be finding a rental.I dont think we will be able to make things happen as quickly as we would like.

Funny thing about all of this is that every move we have made W.H. has had URGENT business that required him to leave for days on end leaving me in charge...Lol...WELL GUESS WHAT.....I …

I may have told you this story before but in case I havent here goes :)......So 5 years ago right after we moved to ND one of my friends here decided I should got to Disney World with her. I was raised around Disney Land and had never went to D.W. before...This was before I started running. While browsing through the shops I fell in love with a purse..It was a Dooney & Bourke with an over all princess design. UM YES PLEASE......
Well I didnt buy it. We had just moved and I was feeling like D.W. was gift enough.Something made me hold back. The next trip back I had saved my money. I was GOING to get my purse..Well guess what not a princess purse to be found. So I just assumed it was a limited edition and it was not to be mine.
The next year was when I lost my dad to heart disease. As I sat there in the hospital listening to the doctor tell us dad would still be with us if he had only been active I vowed to become active. I came home and bought my treadmill..I KNOW I have to ya'…

Big News For Us

Image
As I promised I have BIG news for ya'll. I couldn't announce it before because there was some paperwork still being finalized. 
We are MOVING....This is actually bittersweet news. We have wonderful friends here and like Minot. We had initially moved here though to lessen the work load that WH had. Less work load less stress..I also was having a hard time with depression in Alaska and the move helped that considerably...For anyone that has watched the news though on North Dakota you know that the oilfield has taken over. So you know what that means. WH did not actually lessen the workload OR the stress..In fact it has increased to the point that I have been very worried about his health.
So a couple of months ago we decided enough. Of course I had my plug in for WARMER weather but he still needs some income lol...So no Florida and Disney World Annual Pass for me! Boo :(.....Its a good thing one of us has a level head....
WH has many irons in the fire and has always been such a…
