Well I did it! I am officially a mom....I chopped my hair off. Yep, about a foot or more. Don't worry it is leaps and bounds better than the 'Milwaukee hack job of 2007'. (As if paying $8.99 in a grocery store salon is hard to beat!) To solidify the fact that I am indeed a mom I wear it in a ponytail EVERY single day. Oh well, it's easy to fix and brush through etc.

Let's see....David had a birthday! Hooray! I started bawling because I didn't have nice gifts for him and he always spoils me silly. I'm sure that's just what he wanted for his b-day, an emotional wreck to deal with! I hope he had a fun day though, we went to Famous Dave's and I made some cupcakes for him, well I made them for his work but apparently once you are out of 3rd grade it's not cool to take things to work. Oh well, Happy Birthday David!

I'm training for a race in April and I do my long runs on Saturday. This weekend was quite the run. I came thisclose to being roadkill, I found a quarter, based on my time I am fairly certain my GU is a placebo, there was some shady business going on at the park....I did mysteriously start to feel more relaxed when I ran past there. Nevermind the fact that I thought purple heffalumps were chasing me, just kidding! I was also chased by a chihuahua, and yes I was terrified! After a few minutes of it following and yapping at me I planned my escape route. Either his legs got tired or his little penny sized lungs popped because I was free at last! A few miles later his hermano came after me-he was wearing a maroon scarf so I wasn't too scared.

I also started teaching aerobics at the church twice a week. Leotards unleashed! I am seriously motivated by these ladies. They lug their kids/snacks/toys/weights etc. and show up happy and ready-puts me to shame! I have realized that if I ever want Grant to cuddle up or play with me all I have to do is stand in front of a group of ladies and start doing jumping jacks. Seriously kid? He's lucky it's not garage sale season or else I might consider selling him for a buck!

Last week I went to Utah with my in-laws. My sil had her senior recital at BYU. She was amazing. Grant and I had a fun time with family and I feel so lucky that we have a great relationship. Cousin Jordan kept Grant entertained!

Isn't she gorgeous? Sorry fellas she's taken!

Speaking of how great of a family I have....they let me slip away for a girls day for a few hours! I love these gals!

Ok off to watch tv....

I have been chased after by a mini dog too! And I screamed and jumped onto the nearest playground equipment and shimmied myself right up to the tippy top of a slide. I am not particularly proud of my cowardice, but my ankles remained unbitten which was for the best.
Who lets their rabid little mongrels roam the streets anyway?? In scarfs, no less! (and I laughed right out loud when I read that.)

Also, your hair is the cutest and your family is gorgeous.

I laughed my head off reading about the chihauha. His hermano was wearing a maroon are so funny.
