OKC Memorial Marathon Eve

It seems unreal that in just a few hours I'll be waking up to leave for downtown OKC.  Time went by quickly since that first training day several months ago. There have been ups and downs throughout training, but I still intend on doing my best and having a great time! In the last few days there have been forecasts of tornadoes, large hail and rain. Not unusual for this time of year here. Hopefully, things will change between now and in the morning, and everyone will enjoy the event!

Half Marathon gear ready to go...

Good luck to everyone running in the morning!

A Little Quiet Time...

Where have the last several weeks gone? I can't believe my last post was over a month ago! The last month has been filled with half marathon training, overcoming some health issues, keeping up with the never-ending "to do" list, and squeezing in moments of art here and there. This afternoon, I'm thankful to have a few minutes of quiet time to get back on track. Well, mostly quiet, except for Abbey's cute snoring.

It's the perfect afternoon for napping....I think I should join her!

I was able to spend some time last night creating some cute Easter cards for my mom, dad, and sister. I used the ideas I learned from one of the Life Book 2014 lessons to create two "Quirky Animals" cards....a bunny and an elephant.

My sister chose to keep the pink bunny, while my mom and dad wanted
the purple elephant.




The Quirky Animals lesson..it turned out very cute!


Well, my quiet time is coming to an end. I need to get some house work done, make some body lotion bars as gifts, finish some laundry, get lunches ready for tomorrow, and sneak in an hour run at some point. Too bad the weekends can't be 3 days long! 

I hope each of you had a blessed time with family over the holiday weekend! Have a great week!
