Let's procrastinate another week, shall we?

So I still haven't sent my Thank You's for the wedding. I blame our photographer for doing such an amazing job, and having to choose just one picture for our cards!!

But, I did finally choose one, and ordered the cards. They should be here in a week or so... So as far as I'm concerned, I'm off the hook for one more week!!!

Here they are!

Let me bring you up to speed....

Hello four followers!!! Sorry I've been a bad blogging buddy, but the last couple of months have been pretty crazy!!! In a nutshell, I had about 50 family members out here from Wisconsin, got married, been chasing after my little guy, been working my a$$ off, and ran a half marathon!!

Let's start with the wedding! Paul & I got married on Oct 8th in North Scottsdale at Regale in DC Ranch. We got very lucky as the weekend before was 105, and it was a PERFECT 81 degrees for our wedding. Someone upstairs was definitely looking out for us!! It was probably the second best day of my life (right behind having Aiden). A month later, people are still talking about it. When I get around to it, I will upload our first dance - pretty damn good, if I do say so myself! Oh! You'd probably like to see a few pics...

We've also been chasing around the cutest ringbearer EVER!!! He's a handful, but we love him and are in awe of how fast he's learning about his world.

I took about two weeks off of work to spend time with my family, who I don't get to see as often as I would like. So it took me quite a while to get caught back up and get in the groove. But it was completely worth it. Especially to hang out with the man who made me the woman I am today. Love you, Dad!
And, while I was at it, I decided last minute to sign up for the Women's Half Marathon in Scottsdale which left me about 3 weeks to train. Somehow, I pulled off a new PR - 1:55:14!! I broke the two hour mark!!! Sorry about the big PROOF on the pics - but I refuse to pay $59.95 for some 3 pictures. Not happening. I have races to pay for!!!

So that's about it (?) for now. I'm just kicking off my training for P.F. Chang's in January, where I plan on running my first full (eek!). I'm also signed up with a team to run Ragnar Del Sol... 11 sweaty strangers in a van, running 200 miles?? Sure, I'm in!!!

I pinky promise I'll try to be better about getting on here more often and stalking your blogs!!

My Biggest Fan!

Week 1 of Marathon training down!! I missed my long run yesterday (that's probably not the best way to start out the first week, but whatever)... Vegas is now only 15 weeks away!!

I got home from my run today, and asked Aiden if he knew where Mommy went. He looked at me and said, "Mommy goes running fast!" Awwww! I love him... but if he only knew how terribly slow I was... sigh...

Then when I got done with my shower, he was playing with my Running Times magazine (which features Desi Davila on the cover). He points at the cover, and says "Mommy running fast!" I can completely see how he would confuse me for Desi... LOL!!! Maybe someday, kiddo, Mommy will be on the cover of Running Times. For now, she'll just have to settle for having a 2 year old as her biggest fan...

Who's that girl?

Sorry, I've been MIA the last month or so... Planning a wedding and working has eaten up all of my time!!! But I have managed to keep running, and have also managed a new injury: every time I go for a run, my calves swell up like balloons!!! Has this happened to any of you before?? I'm contemplating getting some compression socks, but want some honest opinions before I drop $50 on socks....
