Day 2 of snowmobiling plus the flu


We rode 75 miles today! IT was not to cold! Right after I posted my blog last night Seth got really sick. We still are not sure if he got food poison or if he has the flu. He still does not feel 100%. Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

snowmobiling day 1

Seth and I are in Cadillac Michigan snowmobiling! We rode about 50 miles today and went to dinner! We have all day Monday and Tuesday to ride also. Seth is trying to grow a beard. Since he can not have one for work! Here is a self picture of me! It is about 23 degrees here and suppose to snow tonight! Woo Hoo! On non snowmobiling topic I got the Revolution for Christmas and have not yet been able to use it!! So sad. When we get back on Wednesday I will be up to the scrapbook store getting some new dies and maybe I can do a mini album on our trip!!!! Love it!!

Here are my shoes after todays race in Chicago! It was so muddy and slush ice that the organizers of the race changed the race from an 8K to a 5K. Only bad thing about that was, Lisa and I did not know this till the end. Lisa ran through the finish line and kept going and was being yelled at to stop so she could turn in her shoe chip. She kept sayin, "but I still have two miles to go!" It was kind of nice that is was made shorter, gave us some time to stop into the Container store and crate and barrel!!!

On another note this is the last week of school and then a two week break!!! YEAH!!!

Till Next Year

Oh, the fun we had. We were laughing so hard I thought we might have gotten kicked out of The Big Bowl! IF you can see in the back of my card all our bags. We have so much fun! It was nice this year, we stayed at Jenn's brothers apartment that over looked Rush street and had a view of the lake. I did a race on Sunday and got my best time of the year. I have one more this weekend (its an 8K almost five miles) I love Chicago!!!

Thanks Kelly

I was the lucky winner of a very cool bucket full of scrapbooking goodies. I posted some cards that I made using my quickutz. Kelly then put all our name in a bag and pulled out a winner and it was me!!! I got these leaves and flowers in my RAK (random act of kindness) prize!

I made this birthday bucket for a teacher I work with. Her birthday is today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LONI!! I thought she could reuse the bucket for one of her grandchildren!

Enjoy our Week!!!
