Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
{one} We went to a family reunion in West Virgina this past weekend. Actually, my husband left on Thursday but because of the job situation I decided it would be best to wait and come up Saturday. Well, it wasn't my choice to come up Saturday, that was made by my brother-in-law and his wife. It was a great reunion but there weren't very many people there - usually there's over 50 and this year, there were about 30 of us. My favorite part of the trip was riding there and back with my BIL and SIL (brother-in-law & sister-in-law) and the cutting board I got from my Uncle Jim =] He owns a construction company just like my father-in-law (his brother) and when they put in new counter tops they have to cut the hole out for the sink...well instead of throwing that piece away, they use it to make cutting boards! He's awesome and I love him!

My BIL A-Dub (he's goofy like my husband & no his hair isn't normally like this!)

Chad and I

{two} You all may know that Cait from theblessedlife is my real life best friend...yeah I know her! Well her and her husband are running a 5k in October and now it's got me itching to do one. My husband has run several in the 5 years we've been together but me...nope, never. I just watch on the sidelines. I've always had the desire to run one with him and I know he wants me I guess now is my chance. I started training today and it was the first day I've ran in like 6 months. But I feel good! My husband probably won't train unless I beg him to run with me but he doesn't really need to unless he wants to improve his time. A few weeks ago he ran in a 5k that started at our church and well, without any training he got 10th or 11th place overall and 1st in his age group. Seriously! I wish I could do that! We might try and drag our oldest nephew out there with us, he seemed interested. I'll let you know how it goes!

That's all for me! I've got some homework to do before my final summer class on Thursday! Yay! Catch ya later!


  1. Hey you were right in my home state over the weekend!! Hope you enjoyed your visit..I love living in WV!! Your cutting board sounds great!!

  2. What a neat idea about the cutting board! Glad you all had a good time! We passed right by there on our way home from DC. :) Such a pretty area! Yay on the 5K...we did our first run yesterday...and Boone probably had the hardest time. :) Are you planning on the Bernheim one too or another one? We haven't signed up yet. Hope to see you soon!
