My FIRST Half Marathon!

I ran my first Half on August 16, 2014! It was one of the most physically hard thing I have EVER done! I was also so emotional! It was such a crazy experience!

It was the Hobble Creek Half Marathon. I had to meet at Mapleton City Park at 5:15 AM. We started the run at 7:20. We started running and I felt really good. I ran with my sister Jamie who I had trained with before hand. We just talked the whole time and kept each other running. We both felt good. I know people always say they catch the "running bug" I wouldn't say I caught that but I definitely caught the "race day bug". Everyone kept telling me how race day is so awesome and you get this special adrenaline I didn't believe them till that day. I struggled to run my entire time I trained! But that day I felt like a rockstar. I never felt really tired and I only hurt a little. It was awesome!

That was...up until mile 10 then I felt like my body was quitting on me. I kept pushing and pushing. Then by mile twelve I literally was going to fall over and die! Jamie was up a little bit further cause I had slowed down. Luckily my mom and sister Amy came up to meet us at this point and see how we we're doing. When Amy came up to me I almost burst into tears, I needed someone to get me to that finish line. I told her I was dying and couldn't do it, she then reassured me that my brain needed to tell my body to keep pushing and that it was tough. After a little bit more she was like "here listen to my ipod" it helped. But then the song "Sail" by Awolnation came on and it just jolted me. I could see the finish line and I wanted to be done! So I kicked it in full gear and pushed.

I was like two strides behind Jamie at this point. Then we got to where people were cheering and I saw Jake holding Ashton and I lost it, I started crying. Not like the "Oh look she is emotional about running cry" it was the "put a bag over her face, she looks like she is dying cry" SUPER unfortunate. ^^ Anyways...the finish line was in site and I said "Jamie pull me up to you hold my hand" I was completely joking and then she said "Should we hold hands across the finish line?" I thought that would be super cool because we had both started from the bottom and now here we were! So we did and it was the neatest thing ever!

We crossed the finish line at 2:25 which isn't amazing, but I was actually surprised! Once I crossed the finish line I was greeted again by family and I was walking to the water station when I started feeling sick and light headed. After I got some chocolate milk in me I was good to go! I was so glad I did and I plan on doing more. But I probably won't do more then 13.1 cause I am only half crazy ;)

 Also my cute mom bought Jamie and I this adorable necklace! I ADORE it!

Crazy Lash Biz!!

About a month or so ago, I had a friend Shannon message me. She told me she wanted to come over and try this new mascara on my lashes. I was hesitant. I had heard of Younique 3D Fiber Lashes but I was a skeptic. I was fine with my cheapo mascara...or so I thought. She put the mascara on and I was amazed! It was like night and day difference. I INSTANTLY fell in love! This was the picture I took the very first time I tried it.

Can you say WOW-ZA!!!
I could go on and on about this mascara. It's hypo-allergenic, organic, all natural. PLUS its only $29 dollars so worth every penny. I will never go back to anything else! I kept trying to find the right mascara, and tricks to get them longer, and tricks to make them curl but NOTHING would work! Then I tried the 3D Fibers and it was a game changer.

So speaking how much I loved it, I decided to become a PRESENTER! I am now selling this mascara to all my friends and family cause I really do believe its the best thing out there and I want to share it! It has been such a benefit for my family and I love making people happy! Win-win?!

If any of you are interested contact me or just go to this link and check out ALL the amazing products they have to offer. 
This is me wearing all their products:
The pigments, and the lip gloss are so incredible! But you will just have to try it for yourself!

Just a quick post to say I am back to blogging! I have been missing writing on here but life turned crazy for the past 4 and a half weeks!

We moved out! It was bitter sweet! But more sweet, we are so excited for the new adventure in a new home and growing our family! We moved on Saturday, July 12, 2014. We got it done all in one day. Packed up, moved out and cleaned. It was exhausting.

Last pic in front of our townhome!

We lived in my in laws during the time we couldn't move into our home. So for 3 weeks. It was good. lots of fun memories made!

We closed on our house on Monday, July 28, 2014. We worked with Leslie Jones as our realtor and Ty Hansen as our Lender. Seriously the best people to EVER work with! 

Tues-Fri we're going to be spent cleaning, painting, and moving from my in laws. Unfortunately the house was left a pig-sty and I spent Tues, Wed, and Thurs cleaning instead. I didn't get any painting done. But it worked out and we we're able to get the house ready in time for us to move in Friday, August 1, 2014. With the help of my fabulous family and my father in law we were able to get all our stuff in one huge hall and move in everything that night. My sisters Kylie and Jamie stayed till midnight and helped me unpack 90% of my kitchen! It saved us! We slept in our new home that same night!

The next morning my parents, and sister Amy came to help us unpack the rest. We we're exhausted by this point but so freaking happy to be in our new home! 

We absolutely LOVE our home! There is so much room to grow, and so many memories are going to be made here! It's perfect. I honestly feel so blessed to be able to move into a beautiful home where I plan to raise my family for many years! I have a lot of projects I already want to do of the home! It's going to be so fun!

* I promise to post a tour of the house soon!*
