O.K., so its been a while. But I'm back! Life has been hectic, but in a good way. I've been going through a series of life altering events. First, the most important one. I got married on Nov. 4. to a great guy. I must say I have a wondeful husband. The day couldn't have been more better. It turned out exactly how I imagined it. It was a gorgeous autumn day. The sun was shining and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. It was 73 degrees with a slight breeze. Here is a picture of me and my bridesmaids. I felt beautiful and all my bridesmaids looked fabulous! I absolutely loved my bouquet. Hand tied mango calla lillies. They were so sophisticated. I absolutely loved them.
Married life is great. I am on cloud nine. I couldn't be happier. It still feels weird to use the term "my husband..." It sounds so grown up. I am definately going to be scrapbooking during the next couple of weeks once I order the professional pictures.
Second, I no longer teach. I currently work at a lab analyzing various types of water collected from specific locations, tanks and wells. Its not a bad job. I might want to try teaching again later. Third, I've registered to run in Greenville News 30th anniversary 5K on Jan. 27th. Its a little nerveracking. But I am definately up for the challenge. This is my first race in eight years. 65 days until the race. I gotta get serious and start my training program. Building endurance, strength and flexibility. I plan on running 4 days a week and doing some turbo kick and calorie killer classes. Its going to be cool to watch my body tranform from flab to fab with kick ass abs. Here's a map of the course
. I should run it atleast once. Seth is taking on the challenge with me. I am proud of him. Have I possibly convinced him that running is fun? Doubt it, but I do know he has to a little something to prove to himself since the last 5K.
Today was a good turkey day. I sat around and relaxed, cooked and watched TV. The menu was: Turkey breast, mashed rutabagas, broccoli au gratin and homemade pumpkin pie. We ate dessert with our friends from South Africa. They of course do not celebrate Thanksgiving, so they have never had pumpkin pie. I must say that it was a damn good pumpkin pie. My hats off to seth.
Tomorrow hair cut, mall and flower shop. Yep, I'm venturing out into the chaos of black friday.
