Memorial Day!

Today is Memorial Day!
I took a few minutes (which is not nearly enough!) to think about all of the soldiers serving our country as well as their families here who miss them terribly. I cannot imagine what their lives must be like...
I think sometimes we forget that all of the images we see on tv or in magazines are REAL. These people are just as real as me...they just have a different job. I just wish there was more I could do to help the soldiers and their families.
I think I will really try to come up with an idea of something that I can do to show them that we appreciate them and we really do care and think about them!

Summer Time is here...I think

Man oh man oh man! Summer time weather has FINALLY hit here in Bend! It has been a steady couple of weeks of temperatures above 70 so HOPEFULLLY we have officially gotten through with another long Winter!
I know I have said it before but Bend is for sure THE MOST lovely place to live in the Summer. It is usually about 85 degrees, crystal clear blue skies with no signs of clouds! You are happy just sitting on the porch all day not doing anything OR there are thousands of trails, lakes, rivers, mountains, etc. you can go have fun on!
I am so excited and so ready for the Summer....I just wish I could express how much I love SUMMERTIME in BEND!

Going Home!

Man oh man! This week I got a ticket to go home to see my family in Mississippi...I love going home!
I fly into Memphis and then me and Judy, Al, and Maggie will be headed to the Delta to see my moma and them!
Pretty much all of the family will be there the first weekend for the big blues fest 5k. It is usually pretty fun when we all get together for a few days. I bet we will have a cook out or something fun like that!
I can hardly wait!!
I love spending time with my moma and Melvin and Kelly...Maggie moo normally stays with us too so that makes it that much better! We don't really do too much but it is just so nice and fun to see everyone.
It is always a little hard to tell everyone bye especially my moma. We talk on the phone like 4 times a day anyway but it still hard leaving knowing I won't get to see her for a while...
Anyway, we won't think about that we will just think about all the yummy food and good times that we are about to have!!!

Feeling Alright

The weather here in Bend is so terrible....rainy and snowy and overcast. I mean, come on, it IS May afterall!

Other than the weather I am doing good. Friday night I went out with a bunch of my girl friends to celebrate Michelle's birthday. It was so much fun! We ALL wore wigs!!! Mine was HOT HOT HOT pink. We ate and drank and was nice hanging out with a bunch of fun ladies!

Saturday was the Salmon Run 5k and the Kentucky Derby and the NASCAR race. It was a busy day and night!

The Salmon Run was great...the sun came out just long enough for the race and post race activities. I felt really good during the run. I ran in about 26 minutes which is alright. I got 3rd in my age group! I think I have decided that I should wear a watch. It would help with paing I think!

Anyway, the Derby was fun even though I didn't win any money! A few of our friends were there so that always makes it fun!

We went to a new sports bar in town to watch NASCAR and the Bulls game. The bar was fun; the sports NOT SO MUCH! Kyle Bush won, Junior sucked and the Bulls lost....dayum!

So, all in all I am feeling pretty good!
