2010 Turkey Dash 5K

I completed my second 5K on Thanksgiving Day. I was very nervous about this one because I have been slacking on my running... it had been almost 3 months since I had run - at all!!

My friend Emily ran with me the whole time, we kept each other entertained by talking to one another and before we knew it, we had less than a mile left to go!

My time was 35:42, which is only 1:04 min slower than my first 5K. I was really shocked considering I haven't trained! I couldn't be more please with my time :) I didn't get any pictures this time but we had a pretty good sized group again.

It was fun and I am ready to do another one! But I need to train for the next one, I was extremely sore for 2 days after this run! My muscles made me pay for not using them up in months! It's crazy to think that I have completed 3 races this year! Two 5K's, and one 10K. Wonder if I will beat my number next year!! I am determined to beat my times :)
PS - I know the picture says 2009, but I could not located a 2010 emblem...

Halloween 2010 (a little late)

My camera was dying on Halloween, so I was only able to take three pic...
Mandie brought over this really cool Pumpkin Pizza for all of us to eat - I thought it was so cute! Sleeping Beauty and her Bat Brother :)

Steph and I wanted something festive, however we waited until Halloween night to go grab something, and all they had left were devil horns... at least they were sparkly!!

I was able to go to my second Texans Game of the season yesterday. Although we lost, I still had such a great time.
Thanks to Emily and David, we had AMAZING seats!! This pic was taken RIGHT before we scored... I tried to get a picture of us making the touchdown, but I was jumping up and down and cheering, so the picture didn't turn out all that great...And I was excited to wear my new Pink Texans Jersey!!! I love it! You can't really tell from the picture, but the number is glittery :) who said you can't still look girly while you tailgate??

Thanks again to Emily and David for the tickets!!!

MM on Friday!

This is a special Muggle Monday because in only TWO WEEKS from TODAY, Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is going to be released!! Here is the trailer for the movie - I get goosebumps every time I see it!
And, to no surprise, I have had my ticket for quite some time. I am doing the assigned seating again, it's so worth it for a premier as large and important as this one - I can't wait!!!!

Special thanks to the Leaky Cauldron for the trailer.

Lately, I have read so many books, it would take too long to tell you about them... so I just wanted to shorten it to the ones that have really caught my attention and that I would HIGHLY recommend to you.

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield: I could not put this book down. There is a crazy twist in the story that I did not see coming, and it made it that much better. You constantly want to know what was going to happen next. It started out just a tad slow, but once it picked up, it never stopped!!

Stephanie introduced me to The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins: I had only been captured by two other series, Harry Potter and Twilight, until I picked up this series. This series does not have vampires or wizards, so if that's not your thing, don't worry. I honestly had no idea what these books were about when I started them, only that they were so great. It is unlike any other series I have ever read. I am completely in love with them. I love the characters, the story, the way it was written - everything!! I would even find myself making excuses not to leave the house because I was so engrossed in this story. I think everyone would enjoy this series (not just girls!). Thank you SO MUCH, Stephanie, for introducing me to them!
