I had such an amazing time running with these girls!
I totally get it now! It was too fun being in the same hotel and just getting to hang out. The run itself was so great. I ran the last 6 miles with Kaylynn who ran the full marathon..she was impressive to say the least. But, I refuse to apologize to all all those who were "silently cursing me" for my excitement and energy and it wasnt it just you Kay, Maren admitted to hating some Liz too. :) I was just having too much fun... all those people telling us how great we were. Thats cool.

I am such a dork. I am running 5.7 miles on Saturday in a relay at the Cal Marathon. I started running 1.5 months ago but am still a nervous wreck!
These girls run 26 miles and I am freaking out about 5.7?? The Relay leg distances are: #1 = 5.9 miles, #2 = 7.6 miles, #3 = 7.0 miles and #4 = 5.7 miles. (ME!)
I have the shortest leg which is last so everyone will probably being slowing down by then but I am still anxious. Anyway, I am going to do it and i will be very proud of myself. The website says everyone gets a medallion. That is the only thing I am looking forward to.

Well, unless your Brad....
It was amazing!!! We drove down to Santa Barbara Wed night and boarded the boat.
There were about 30 of us on board an 80 foot boat. There were 6 crew members. 4 guys and 2 galley girls who were two of the best cooks ever! They made a full Thanksgiving dinner on the boat! It was awesome. Most of the people on the boat were Scuba certified so they were able to catch some amazing fresh seafood like Lobsters, munk fish, bass and scallops. Brad and I only snorkled but were still able to get fresh mussels and swim with the seals. I took naps, read my books and played cards the rest of the time!
On our trip back to land we saw abou 150 dolphins!! It was so neat. If anyone is ever interested in doing a trip like this let me know. They Charter the boat every Thanskgiving and are usually looking for addt'l people to join in the fun!! More pics to come!

I had such a fun weekend (last weekend)...hanging with
some of my old college girlfriends. Liz is on the left and
"G" is on the right. I haven't laughed so hard in such a long
time. Liz is one of the funniest people you will ever meet and
Gloriana is so genuine, its overwhelming at times.
Below is Liz's husband Mike and adorable baby Owen.

Wow!! Our first Earthquake...it was pretty amazing. Brad and I just could not believe what was happening. Brad described it as feeling like he was "riding a wave". We both wished is had lasted just a little bit longer so we could have really taken it all in. I am sure there will be a next time.
No damage, but a good reminder to make sure our 72 hour kits our stocked.

Here I am dressed up at Lucy and my friend Paul on the far left
was Ricky Ricardo. He was the perfect Ricky!
Growing up my Mom always made our costumes for us. She would start in September by taking us to the fabric store to pick out a pattern and fabrics. Our basement would be tranformed into a costume making factory and she would work day and night making costumes for all 4 kids!!
It was such a fun time.
The picure above is me as a slice of watermelon. I was in 6th grade. I won the school costume contest for most creative. I am a winner.
p.s That hair is hot dont you think???

If you are a fan of the Bachelor you need to check out this blog.
This lady is too funny. Here is one my favorite quotes from her blog....
"“Come to my house for a pool party.”WHOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!!! The scream that could be heard for miles. It didn’t dawn on me, other than the fact that she’s from Crazy Town, why Hillary was making such a huge deal about this date. We find out later that she is the only one who hasn’t seen our Bachelor without a shirt.I guess there is reason to celebrate. I’ll erase one crazy mark by her name."

Pedro, Liz and Brad
We went to see a Band on Saturday night in SF. It was
really fun. The piano player sounded just like Gavin Degraw.
Molly had a little crush on him until she found out he is....22.
Here is Molly trying to get in a picture with him. Too funny!
