[5] Milestone.

It was another gorgeous day in central Florida.

Sunny, low 70s, and not a cloud in the sky.

I worked outside today measuring, lining, and painting our lacrosse field
and actually got sun! Not to mention a sweet farmer’s tan too.
I’m ok with that though, at least it’s something!

After work I decided to run on campus instead of heading home to run.
We have something called “Hatter Tracks” …
(that’s our mascot, we’re the Hatters, a story for another day)

Well, one Hatter Track is basically a large loop around campus & it’s 1.25 miles.
Somehow, I ran four of them! I know, I’m just as shocked as you!!

That is a grand total of 5 miles!! (gasp) Yes, 5 miles!
The furthest I’ve ever run!

Needless to say, I was pretty excited. Still am actually.

This is the middle of campus. Palm Court.

Pretty sweet eh?

Be Magic.

Greg and I went to the Orlando Magic game tonight,
(thanks to our friend Michelle who gave us the tickets).

It was my first (and Greg’s second) Magic game at the new Amway Center
which is unbelievable. It’s hard to believe you’re in an arena!

The Magic beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-87!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Orlando
and this was the perfect way to end the weekend!

Be Magic!

A first time for everything.

Tonight. It was Indian food.

Well, at least for me.
Greg frequented the Indian restaurant on Long Island many of times.

But tonight was a first for me.
I do have to say that I did enjoy it!

I got the Lamb Curry and Greg tired the Chicken Curry.
Mine, medium. His, hot.

We also shared the nan, which was surprisingly delish!



For those of you who don’t know, we love college basketball.

Like… March Madness is almost better than Christmas.

Tonight, Indiana is playing #21 Illinois in Bloomington, IN.

Thanks to the Big Ten Network,
we get to watch all the way in (warm) Florida!

We’re hanging with them so far… Let’s hope they can keep it up!


Knocked Out

Today, I was down for the count with an upper respiratory infection.

Thank goodness for Z-pack and OJ (with half the calories, of course).

Hopefully I’ll be good as new tomorrow…or at least close to it.


Rain, Rain Go Away

Today was quite an eventful day (according to the local news & weatherman).

Thunderstorms, rain, and tornadoes, oh my!

We just got a lot of rain (still getting it actually) where we live,
but there were lots of tornadoes in the area.

It should make for a good night of sleeping though!

Loads of…fun?

The downside to a long weekend away is the amount of
laundry you come home to.
Especially when you wore about 32 layers per day.

Well, that’s exactly what happened to us. We did 3 full loads tonight…
and have about 3 more to do tomorrow.

Fun?… Not really. And the worst part is yet to come.
Actually putting the clean clothes away.

Mmmm. Maybe tomorrow… 😉

So long Colorado!

Today we made the trip down the mountain
and back to the Denver International Airport.

We had an awesome weekend filled with
family, friends, and fun.

More specifically, snowmobiling, eating, drinking,
skiing,  snowboarding, tubing, more eating, and more drinking.
It was so great to have Addy & Drew snowmobile & ski with us
and see Cullen ski for the first time ever!

It’s sad leaving this amazing view,
but we are happy to get back to warmer weather
as it was a frigid 7* when we left Frisco today!

Back to the real world we go…

It’s like riding a bike…

That was definitely the motto of the day.
After somewhat of a rocky start this morning, we hit the slopes!

Greg snowboarded and I rocked it on skis.
It was indeed like riding a bike, we got the hang of it again very quickly.

It’s been dumping snow in Frisco so the ski conditions
at Copper Mountain were great, we even had some serious
white outs today as the snow was coming down all day.

A couple hours later, we went tubing!
Which was so fun!!

There were four different slopes, each one faster than the other.
At one point we made a 7 person train, which was super fast!

Tonight, we celebrated the twins’ 6th birthday with cake and ice cream!


Also, a big happy birthday to my daddy today!
