My Beautiful Girls

I really wanted to share this with you all. I think it is one of the best pictures/drawings ever! :) My niece Natalie drew/colored it (sorry it is not in color). It is a drawing of her and her sister Leah. What is funny about it is Natalie (shown on the left) is 6 years old and Leah (on the right) is only 3 years old. I guess in Natalie's mind Leah is bigger than her...haha In real life, she surely is not.

If grandma shows this to you, I love you girls!...and you are a WONDERFUL artist Natalie!!! :)

(((((Picture below is of Natalie, Leah and me)))))

Dallas Farmer's Market

Sunday was a great day! Drew FINALLY (j/k baby!) took me to the Dallas Farmer's Market. It was really cool. But some of the vendors seemed more like used car salesmen rather than farmers. Some were a little pushy and in your face. But it was all good! Drew at one point said, "If all fruit tasted this good, I would actually be willing to eat it!" I said, "It does, silly!" haha Anyway, we had a good time sampling all the fruit and finding the best price on baby red potatoes (I dont know what they are called)...Pretty much everthing was priced the same at each stand so it was pointless. I was really just trying to find the biggest ones. :)
Man, all this talk of food is making me hungry!!! Im off to lunch...
Just one more thing before I go... Tomorrow is Professional Administrative Assistant's Day (say that ten times fast!) So, to all of you Professional Administrative Assistants out there, I hope your boss appreciates you and gets you something nice (I get a half day off and flowers :)). Happy PAA Day!

Now, im not particularly vain or anything but I have a bit of a cosmetic problem that I am hoping you all can help me out with... I get these terrible cold sores on my face- usually around my mouth but most recently on the tip of my nose (gross, I know!). The cold sores dont stay too long which is nice but they always leave a scar in their wake...which totally stinks! Now, if they were shaped like lizards like the one above, maybe that would be cool. But they never are. They are just red blemishes and the one on my nose now makes me look all rudolph-y :( I have been putting liquid Vitamin E on it twice a day for a month now and it doesnt seem to be working. Any suggestion on how to naturally (meaning not Mederma or any commercial product) get rid of it? Please help or im going to have to move to the North Pole and never get to spend another chirstmas with my family!!!

Butterfly Boogie Pic

For some reason, it would'nt let me add this pic to the post below. Im so Rocky Balboa! haha

Butterfly Boogie 5k, March 29, 2008

So, I know you all have been literally DYING to know how the Butterfly Boogie on March 29th went. Well, the wait is over! :) It was AMAZING! I ran the 5k in 39.01 minutes....I was'nt first place or anything but I was 18th in my age group (20-24). Not too shabby for my first 5k EVER! My bro did it in 35:36. Watch out bro, I'm hot on your heels!
My sister-in-law said "How come Bekah is all smiling and Jonathan looks like he is about to fall over and die?" haha I said, "Jonathan was acutally trying to make a good time. I was just happy to be finishing alive!" :) Good time, good times....See pics below:

More Fun For Friday :)

Happy Friday!

Every now and then, I get a little bored at work and shame on me, but I surf the internet for something to lighten my mood and my boredom (Oh dont act like you never do it! :)) I love finding these funny cartoons. I hope you enjoy them too!
P.S. I will be posting pictures from this past weekend's 5K on Monday. It was a blast!

Loving Apples and Avocados...But not at the same time!

You know that old saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Well, I sure hope it is true! Because insurance copays are expensive- Well, mine are anyway! So, I think I will just keep eating my apple a day and keep the insurance around for emergencies. http://www.bspcn.com/2007/08/05/9-reasons-why-an-apple-a-day-really-keeps-the-doctor-away/

Also, lately, I have been really craving avocados. I dont know why...I literally had a dream the other night that I was eating one...and the other day, Drew and I were out of town and looking for somoewhere to eat and I begged him to choose Mexican food so I could have some guacamole :) Avocados have gotten a bad rep for being fattening but it is good fat and they have lots of good nutrients as well! http://www.avocado.org/healthy_living/nutrition.php I went to the grocery store last night and bought a few. I plan on enjoying them tonight :)
