Yay! First Visitor!

image Today we received our first visitor! yay! We were so excited to see Jim, he came by to say karibu from our new church with some goodies! How awesome!
Today was a day of no unpacking, decided to go shopping and it was crazy! I decided to go back home using the interstate and for some reason my GPS got confused and I found myself heading towards Nashville. At least I got to see Franklin, which is 15 miles away from Bowling Green, how fun!
I hope you all have a merry Christmas and a happy new year, I am going to check out for awhile!

Wauhatchie 6.7 miles Trail Run

I have always wanted to do a trail run and a 10K Trail run did not sound too bad. After all the others I know about are like, 50K!! Come Saturday morning, I started panicking, fingers were all frozen, but it was too late to turn back. The start was in waves according to age/gender. I think I like the wave start method, reduces the huge crowd at the start line. My age group had only 3 women. The first two miles were the hardest, it was so hilly but I kept on pushing. Ran some, walked some, walked some, ran some, took pictures 🙂 A trail run is a totally different monster. Small hill, big hills, streams, mud The last 2 miles were easier, I guess when you go up, you have to somehow come down! At some point after mile 4, I thought I was lost because I could not see anyone behind or in front of me then I came upon the only water stop. This was a challenging race, my time sucked!! but I hope I can do it again or another trail run! It was awesome running on unmarked trails hanging out with nature!



What a super lazy saturday, I did not even go running which means I woke up after 10am. Not good! To make up for it, I went visiting Rachel’s blog, Rachel, the gourmet country girl lives up to her name. Her recipes are gourmet and easy to follow and they work! I decided to try her pretzels recipe. Those pretzels came out soft and yummy! Who needs frozen pretzel anymore? I added cheese on mine and the kids wanted cinammon and sugar on theirs! I also used her pizza crust recipe! Rachel, you rock! I can honestly say my day was made.

FB part two!

Did you find your FB personality in my first post?  Never fear!  There is more from where that came from.

The next personality that I have encountered are the “News Anchor”  The news anchors know EVERYTHING that is happening when it happens.  If you don’t have time to sit by the TV and watch some boring news?  You are in luck.  Check their status.  They will let you know which famous person has died or what just happened in Africa.  They probably do not work for a news organization.

There is another personality that I do not have a name for…once in awhile they make me feel guilty…just a little.  Every week they have these words in their status’ “Put this as your status for …. hours… I know most of you won’t.”  How many causes can one person have? Enough said!

Then there are the whiners…they basically do not appreciate ANYTHING!  They complain about EVERYTHING!  men, women, their job, walmart, their car, their professor, everything sucks all the time!

Don’t get me wrong, I love facebook and I love my facebook friends.  I confess that once in a while I am a lurker, I go in and just check what is happening with my friends that I have not seen or heard from in a while.  I appreciate the ‘news anchor’ once in a while.

Have a great weekend!
