Clean and Organize!!

A couple weeks ago I started feeling like this house was in DESPERATE NEED of some serious organizing. I found a blog called Delightful Order that has a 21 day challenge. I decided to take this challenge and get our house in order!!! I must admit, it is going to take more than 21 days. With 3 kids, prechool, and all of the other sfuff going on in our lives, I feel like this might be more like a 3 month challenge. So far, I have cleaned and organized..the junk drawer, the kids rooms, the master closet...and MY FAV, the kitchen pantry!!!! The pantry was by far the biggest challenge. It was a mess..and when I say mess, I mean a disaster!! We have a big walk in pantry and it was so unorganized and cluttered that I felt like the walls were closing in. It took me all afternoon....and it turned out AWESOME!!! It makes me smile every time I open the doors and walk in there. I never thought organizing would feel soooooooooooo good!! I took some before and after pictures....





Not too bad, eh?? Next project...master and hall bathrooms.

Run Forrest, RUN!!

October 2010 I set a goal. I wanted to run the Prairie Fire Half Marathon in October of 2011. Up until July, I thought it was just another goal that I had set and didn't follow through with. Then one evening at Bunco, a couple girls and I started talking about running. Something lit a fire inside me again and I decided that this was a goal I was going to make good on. 13 weeks ago, on July 18th, I started my training. I found a website with a training plan...and started running. I have to say, my training has had its fair share of ups and downs. I didn't exactly do all the strength and cross training that it asked me to do, BUT, I have logged 155 miles of running!! I did the math and that comes out to 25 hours of running..and 17,550 calories burned!! Whoa.

This Sunday, October 9th, is the race. 13.1 miles. The weatherman is forecasting a rainy morning..yuck. I have not ran in the rain so I really don't know what to expect. SOOO...please pray for a sunny Sunday and wish me luck!!
