as the tradition goes, "the one to catch catch the bride's bouquet, is the next one to get hitched"
My sister in law Karly got married this past weekend..
& 6 days short of exactly one year ago, she caught my bouquet.

we are SO HAPPY for Karly & Dave
and grateful we got to be a part of their special day & all their wedding festivities.

Dear Dad, 
remember when you would let me ride on your back down the stairs EVERY night when it was dinner time.
remember when we would go to the pools and you would throw me in the air..and again, ride on your back & i'd pretend you were my dolphin.
remember when you would let me sit on your lap and steer the driving wheel through our neighborhood.
remember when we'd go in the 'cuzzi' all the time.
remember when you baptized me when i was 8 years old, and i cried because i was really nervous.
remember when you coached my soccer teams (for many years) and were the best coach around.
remember when you taught me how to ride a bike.
remember when you would wake us up at the crack of dawn to get our saturday chores done..and sleeping in till 8 was "wasting the day"
remember when you came to my open houses and i'd write secret notes to you on my desk.
remember when you'd have all us kids go to the high school track and we would do sprints & you'd time us.
remember when you helped me buy my first car.
remember when you taught me how to be independent and a hard worker.
remember when you gave jason permission to marry your baby girl.

dad, who would i be if it weren't for you?
thanks for being the best and most loving man to our family.
& thanks for always making me laugh.
love you dad!!

AND i can't forget my awesome father in law.
without this man, jason wouldn't be who he is today either.
and i couldn't have asked for a more sincere and generous F.I.L.

happy father's day 

Blood, Sweat, & Mud

Yesterday we participated in this..
we got a spot in the race last minute (as in, 5 days before)
off of Craigslist (probably one of the only races where you can sell your spot).
we joined some of our friends & had a BLAST. running 6.2 miles had never been so fun.
it was 6.2 miles of hills, mud pits, 5ft walls, swimming through water, crawling through mud & tunnels, and climbing up a slippery muddy hill...oh and my favorite; being sprayed with fire hoses along the way.

i love how i run 4x a week to build my endurance, while jason NEVER runs & he could've done this in his sleep...psh, men.
but he was the BEST running partner..we talked the whole time.
we had so much fun that we plan on doing this every year from now on.
who's with us? :)
