[.always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.]

Last Saturday I raced in the 10K Dirty Dash!  I've heard about this and had been wanting to do it for a while!  So, the day came and it was just as awesome as I had expected!!  Although I wasn't even the slightest bit sore.  I love feeling sore after a race and feeling that sense of hard work.  Next time I'll just have to push that much harder :)

All clean before the race...

After a few mud fights and some falls....

Will definitely be doing this again!!

Utah Valley half is now open if anyone wants to sign up!! :)

[.whatever you are, be a good one.]

14 hour days are insane!  Between training, school, interning, church callings and somewhere in between being a wife, life has been incredibly busy!

Here is a little recap of the last month..

Jackson Hole was wonderful!

We've been redoing our bathroom..

My sister Mandy taught Jenna and I how to do our own glitter toes, and I love them:)  Definitely an upcoming young women activity!

I just had a client cancel, so that means...
Dinner is in the crockpot...
that's a first!
Crock Pot Pineapple Chicken

So, Lance and I both have addictions..
Mine is Pinterest, I have now been an addict for a good 4.5 months
(I'm warning you, don't click, you will become addicted)
His is the Friday Night Lights series.

Tonight, as I was browsing pinterest, I heard a girl talking on Friday Night Lights (I know, I know, at least we're both giving into our addictions at the same time right?? Don't judge us) saying this...

"Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything.  I figured wanting would lead to trying and trying would lead to failure.  But now I find I can't stop waning.  I want to fly somewhere on first class.  I want to travel to Europe on a business trip.  I want to get invited to the White House.  I want to learn about the world.  I want to surprise myself.  I want to be important.  I want to be the best person I can be.  I want to define myself instead of having others define me.  I want to win and have people be happy for me.  I want to lose and get over it.  I want to not be afraid of the unknown.  I want to grow up and be generous and big hearted, the way people have been with me.  I want an interesting and surprising life.  It's not that I think I'm going to get all these things, I just want the possibility of getting them.  College represents possibility.  The possibility that things are going to change.  I can't wait."

I sometimes feel that so many people are afraid of failure.  Why can't people see their potential?  What has gone on in their life to make them feel this way?  These are the things that get my mind stirring and always wanting to learn more.

On another note, Jenna came up with the idea of 
No sugar September...
and I love her reasoning behind it.
My idea of no sugar September doesn't entail eliminating ALL sugar, because let's be honest.  Fruit has sugar, milk has sugar, even my good ole PB2 has some sugar in it.  And let's be even more honest, I'm still going to eat those things.  Things I would otherwise sometimes eat like treats, jelly/jam, cinnamon sugar, chocolate milk, and other items I will be eliminating.
I love this idea.  Set a goal and try to stick with it for ONE month!  It's only ONE month.
Thank you Jenna for the idea :)

Found this today, loved it.
