Tonight Rick & I were given the opportunity to throw my sister & future brother in law an engagement party. We couldn't be more excited for them & we are so happy that she has found forever love. Everyone was happy to toast the future Mr & Mrs.Bebich. And even Holly had a great time dancing with her daddy at the party.
At the beginning of this year my knee was operated on. As soon as I started to heal I decided I needed to sign up for some type of race to train for...a 1/2 marathon, a mud run or better yet a combination of the two. Then my friend Heather made the suggestion that we should get a group of girls together & do the Tough Mudder. My decision to pick a race was made for me. So a group of 5 ladies set out to get ready for this run. We ran, did pushups, situps, stairs, pull-ups & of course the occasional happy hour was attended. The weekend had arrived. We donned our referee inspired outfits & took a picture to document that we started out clean.
We ran 11 miles & completed 29 obstacles that included crawling through mud, jumping into freezing ice cold water, climbing up horrible sand dunes, scaling walls & the final obstacle of running through wires containing 10,000 volts of electricity. It will take a while for me to forget those wires that I expected to feel like bee stings but instead felt like baseball bats but overall it was a great race. And we may not look that muddy but I think our filthy, stained outfits speak for themselves.
We were very proud of ourselves & headed south to check in to the San Diego W for an evening of drinking & dancing. It was a great weekend spent with girlfriends & it was all thanks to our husbands who stayed home with kiddos.
This title holds true for many reasons. The pictures here are from Joey's 1st & last day of the soccer season & quite possibly the 1st & last season of soccer he will ever play. He didn't really enjoy the game. He liked the kids, the oranges at half time, the water breaks & the snacks but when it actually came time to play, Joey was not at all thrilled with the game so unless he begs to play next year I'm not going to put him through this again.
