I have the BEST job!

I love being a mommy but my "real" job - the one that pays the bills is working for the City of Farmers Branch as the Special Events Manager.  I am very fortunate as this is my DREAM job, planning city events and festivals.  It is crazy and fun!  We just finished up our biggest event of the year, Liberty Fest, last weekend.  It was a ton of work and I have great coworkers and bosses that helped support me and make this event successful.  We had the bands Gin Blossoms and Styx and they both ROCKED!  Here is a picture of me and the other staff with Styx :)  Please don't make fun of the Britney Spears microphone...it is the only way I could hear anyone when we were backstage. 

This week has been my recovery week - there were lots of long days and nights to pull this off.  I am going to get back to running this weekend (which I've missed) and back to blogging more often.  Stay tuned!

Family Fun!

The weather over the last few weeks has been so nice! We have taken full advantage with lots of fun family time.

Mike & Addi - First fishing trip at Fishin' Fun in Farmers Branch

For Mother's Day - Mike, Addi and I spent the afternoon at the Lake Dallas Carnival.  Addison had a BLAST riding all the rides and bouncing in the bounce house.  

Riding in the helicopter!

Flying high in the airplane...she talked about this all week!

Bouncing - Bouncing - Bouncing

Addi and I had a fun playdate at the Fort Worth Zoo with Carrie and Emily.  We enjoyed a fun day looking at all the animals and finished with a lunch overlooking the alligators.  Her favorite...the Alligator even though it scared the crap out of her.  The second picture is her and Emily in their beautiful princess crowns - this was the best picture I could get because the girls kept giggling and looking at each other :)

We spent Sunday afternoon playing in the fountains in Flower Mound.  We took Addison for a surprise ice cream at Rita's Ice and fun in the fountains.

We have had some really fun weekends with many more to come!  I love SPRING!

The Jog Blog - Week 3

It's HOT!!!  I'm trying to stay on track with running but summer is coming early for Texas.  I managed to get to 3.25 miles this week but I'm about a half mile off my goal.  I'm going to have to step it up but I think I'm going to have to keep my runs really early in the morning or really late in order to make it through. 

I'm tracking my runs on my iphone with the app Runkeeper and I love it.  You can set it to inturrupt your music and tell you miles per hour, distance, time, etc.  It helps me keep on pace and push myself a little harder.  Here is the app:

Here is my progress this week -

Saturday (4.28.12) - 3.08 miles @ 00:37:04
Sunday (4.29.12) - 2.20 miles @ 00:27:18
Monday (4.30.12) - 3.25 miles @ 00:36:41
