Day 151

Caitlin and I headed up to Northwest Arkansas to shop and on our way back home, we stopped at Orange Mango and had some delish frozen yogurt. You get to choose your flavor(s), top it with whatever you can dream of, and they weigh it and you pay for it. It's so good!

Then we came back to:

It was so hard! Not quite sure why. We both completed our days but felt somewhat frustrated at ourselves for almost not making it.

Day 150

It's been a lazy Sunday for all of us. Even Jack who nestled inbetween our legs for a nap.

Day 149

Brian and I had date night and we went to a new Japanese steakhouse in town. We ordered a plate of sushi which I never thought I'd ever see him eat. We had crab and salmon nigiri and a California Roll. The crab was our favorite and the California Roll was probably our least favorite.

Day 148

I had to start over since I took two weeks off while I was sick. I still managed to complete all 9 intervals of running.

Not quite sure how I forgot to post something today.

Day 146

If you read Pioneer Woman's blog at all, you know she does Photography Assignments close to every week. This week's assignment was "Coming Home." Since Jade's hubby, Michael, just got back from Afghanistan, I knew we had a lot of pictures to choose from! Sadly, I wasn't there when he came home, but Brian and our trusty camera were present! So I submitted Brian's picture (that I edited) and she chose it as one of her selected photos!

Check out the original Brian shot:

Day 145

Early this morning, Brian's mom's ceiling collapsed into their newly redecorated living room. Turns out when they had their roof done two years ago, a worker stepped on a pipe for their air conditioner unit, causing it to crack. So for two years, water has been leaking and as a lovely anniversary gift to Brian's mom and stepdad, the ceiling came crashing down. Last night, we went over to the house to inspect the damage.

Day 144

After the end of Lost last night (sniff, sniff) and this sore throat that WILL NOT go away, coffee ice cream was a necessity today.

Day 143

My herb garden is growing strong. I can't wait until I'm well enough to actually cook with them!

Saturday, May 22, 2010

Day 142

I love getting flowers. :) Just love it.

Day 141

This little beauty has been my lifesaver.

Day 140

Sickness update:
No real news, still sick. However, this tea is a lifesaver. This is coming from someone who HATES tea. But if you're sick, I recommend this with a slice of lemon and honey.

Day 139

Still home and sick. I did spend two hours back at doctor and my white blood count is lowering, but it's still high. However, my left tonsil now has a white "patch" on it. He gave me another round of antibotics to try, and if it doesn't work we'll be looking at going to an ENT about possibly getting my tonsils removed. Joy.

So, as entertainment, I took pictures of Jack "hunting" squirrels. (The squirrel is under the swing on the left side.)

Notice the right paw up and ready to strike.

One more step closer...

And he's off!

Day 138

Again, I'm failing on the picture taking.

Still at home.

Still sick.

But in good news, Jade's hubby came back from Afghanistan!

Monday, May 17, 2010

Day 137

No picture again.

Cabin fever is reaallllllllly starting to sink in!

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Day 136

No picture today :(

I woke up this morning with a 99.9 degree fever, by 10am it was at 100.0. My mom took me to the walk-in clinic, and at 11am, my fever was 101.1.

They're not quite sure what's wrong with me other than I have a virus of some sort. They told me to take it easy and rest as much as I can. I go back to the doctor Wednesday to find out test results and to follow up.

Day 135

Brian is somewhat addicted to the Claw Machine arcade games. He's a winner everytime!

Friday, May 14, 2010

Day 134

I'm slightly obsessed with Lisa Leonard jewelry. Ok, probably more than slightly. Brian ordered me a couple of necklaces for my birthday and I'm so ready for them to come in! He ordered me:

The Dewdrops Necklace


The Open Circle Necklace

Today on Lisa's blog, she is having an amazing giveaway! Check it out and enter!

Day 133

I did it!!!!! I ran all 9 intervals of running. Just so happens that the last song played during the runs was "Stronger" by Britney Spears. Totally cheesey but I thought it was a good song to end W1D2.

Day 132

I think this is something important to always keep in mind.

Day 131

So this is really from yesterday, but I was scared to blog about it early. Caitlin and I began the Couch to 5K program last night.

Let me just say that I am not a runner. Why run when you can walk fast? But, I have decided to do whatever it takes to get into shape, which running seemed like the most logical choice. It's a good workout and I can do it anywhere.

In an attempt to keep myself accountable, I'll post what I accomplish on the days we run.

W1D1 (yesterday): Ran 7 out of the 9 intervals

Day 130

Every time 10 minutes, this screen would pop up. Stupid tornado warnings! There was a tornado that hit OKC and the same storm marched its happy butt towards our area. Therefore, every few minutes when a new warning came up, the Emergency Alert System would show this screen. That's it. No voice saying "This is a message from the Weather Station..." Nothing.

Day 129

Happy Mother's Day! So I'm cheating and putting a picture up from yesterday (and my mom is probably going to hurt me for posting this picture) but I had to showcase my wonderful mother!

Mom, I love you and thank you for always being there for me! I love you!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there!!!

Day 126

I got so many awesome cookbooks for my birthday! I can't wait to get cooking!

Day 125

Happy Cinco de Page-o! :)

I've been so incredibly blessed this year that I can't even begin to thank everyone who has wished me a happy birthday or had the thoughtfulness to get me a gift. So thank you to everyone!

Brian sent me flowers today while I was at work. My favorite flowers are tulips, so he sent me a BEAUTIFUL arrangement today! When they were dropped off, the tulips suffered a little too much in the heat, so they were a little droopy. The lady ran out to their van and grabbed about 7 pennies and dropped them into the vase. She said that the pennies would perk up the tulips.

Sure enough, it's working! The before shot is when I first started noticing that they were perking up, and the after is about 30 minutes later.

Day 121

I've been dying to change out the top of my Happy Everything plate. Since mine and Brian's birthdays are in the next few days (his is Monday the 3rd and mine is Wednesday the 5th), I made it a Happy Birthday plate!

The beginning of Birthday Week is upon us yet again!
