Great Strides Walk 2010 (again!)

Please help me raise money for the Great Strides CF Walk, I am participating in.
Every penny helps! Even though I have reached my personal goal, my team has not met their goal yet, so it would be wonderful if you could donate!

Your donations will go towards finding a cure for the devestating disease CF, Cystic Fibrosis. My friend
Cara has this disease and is the team leader of the group I am walking with, CARA'S CORPS.

CLICK HERE if you would like to donate! Thank you to everyone who is helping out for this cause!!

C25K Training

My sister wanted to start running, but said she needed a buddy to keep her motivated… so she talked me into running with her. Honestly, I was not all that thrilled about it. I am not a runner, I don’t typically enjoy it, and I was lazy…
We are now into our 3rd week of training, and I am shocked! I don’t LOVE it yet, but I don’t hate it – which is great! We are following a plan called Couch-to-5K. There is an app that we downloaded onto our iphones that tells us when to run and when to walk. It slowly builds up your endurance and stamina so that you don’t get burned out and quit.
We both signed up for our very first run – The Run Wild 5K this July. A lot of Joe’s family (that’s really into running) will be in town for his step-brother’s wedding. They will be running it as well, along with some of my family. Run Wild 5K has turned into a family event! I am really looking forward to it! Joe is going to be racing my cousin, Philip, for the 3.1 miles – my goal is just to complete it without walking.
And I will be honest… I am not doing this for my health… I am hoping to get a little toned, and lose about 3-5 lbs. Wish us luck on our new adventure!!!

My Nissan Altima

Here's the new car! It's my very first 4-door car!!
And I have buttons on my steering wheel!
Although I can't put the top down in this car, I can open my sunroof!!
You see the arrow and the caption that says 'RIGHT HERE!!!' - that happens to be my favorite feature.... HEATED SEATS!! Even though I live in Houston, I am ALWAYS cold, and will use the heck out of the heated seats!
So there you have it - my new car!! It drives so differently then the Mustang, so I'm still getting used to it. I really do like my new car, I can't get over how smooth it drives!! I'm still sad about the Mustang, I wasn't ready to give up that car yet.... but I am enjoying this car, its newer and has 1/2 the miles so I know it was a smart choice. Let me now what you think!!!

It's Totaled...

Again! This is the second car that I have totaled from hydroplaning.
I was so sad to say bye to the Mustang, it was the first car I bought. It was such a fun car, and I'm going to miss the convertible.

Here is the damage...It was totaled because the frame was damaged (couldn't even open my driver side door!), the airbags deployed (ouch!), needed a new bumper, hood, side quarter panels, windshield, etc... you get the point...

And here is the damage to me... This is my wrist - a burn from the airbag My knee
My forearm had a deep bruise as well... that one hurt the worst..

I was on my way to Dallas for my high school friends wedding. Thankfully, I was not hurt badly and managed to make it in time for the rehearsal dinner.

Shopping for a new car isn't as much fun when you HAVE to, rather then you WANT to... I pick up my new car today... I am excited, but it's a 'smart' decision rather then a 'fun' decision... I will post pics of my new car soon!!
