Ready to Rock-n-Roll....

This time tomorrow Jeremy and I will be recovering from the Rock-n-Roll half Marathon. This morning we woke up really early to go volunteer at Luke's Spring Classic 5k/10k. The running group I coach ran in the race this morning. They did really good too!! After the race we headed over to the expo to pick up our race packet for tomorrow.

(Not sure why this is so fuzzy)

We have been training hard over the last few months preparing for this race! This will be my third half and Jeremy's second. Back in December he ran the marathon instead of the half. Every Saturday we get up and meet our running groups with Luke's Locker. I cannot even express how much we LOVE their training program. It's very organized and gets you very prepared for a race. Not only is it fun, but you meet lots of new friends too!! I'll try to post our results after the race tomorrow.

Stouffer's Meals for Two

Megan over at In This Wonderful Life is having a fun giveaway. Click on the link provided and you can enter to win too! BlogHer has reviewed Stouffer's "Saute's for Two. Check it out the next time you go grocery to the grocery store.

It's such an easy way to whip up a quick meal. If you're like us, we don't have much time in the evenings. Between working late, running errands, working out...time gets away from us. We usually like to make quick easy meals. Good luck!

Spring's almost over!

WOW....I didn't intend on taking a blogging break. Leading up to Spring Break, it has been SUPER busy at work. The Thursday before break we always have Open House at school. It's a time for the kids to show off all of their hard work. In order to prepare I hang up a few pieces they have worked on and then the rest goes in these pillowcases. Each gets to stamp their hand on everyone's that's 20 hands on 20 pillowcases. It takes ALOT of time and patience. They are absolutely precious and such a wonderful keepsake for the kids.

A few pillowcases lined up in my classroom.
This is just one of the displays in my classroom for Open House. The kids wrote a story about if they were 100 years old. Let me tell you they were hysterical! Their portraits are just as funny.

"If I Were 100 Years Old..."

This week I have been resting and catching up on some chores around the house. I've been cleaning the carpet in each room as well as organizing a few rooms. It absolutely drives Jeremy crazy...he's always ready for me to go back to work. I took a break from cleaning to go on a mini girls trip and then went to Tulsa to visit my family.

While in Tulsa we always have to visit some of our favorite restaurants that we don't have in Dallas. One of our favorite pizza joints is Mazzio, it reminds us of our childhood. It was so nice to visit some of our family and just relax. Tonight we're hanging our two sweet little dogs.

Tomorrow is our last weekend run before the Rock 'n Roll half marathon next weekend. I'll post more on that later.
