Makes me smile:)

Janey just e-mailed the cutest picture and I just had to post it. It was taken by the lovely Jasmine Star who totally rocked as Janey's wedding photographer. One reason why I love this picture is it totally shows the fun, loving relationship that Janey, Gary, Missy and I have. Seriously when I'm around those three my stomach hurts from laughing so hard. They're three of my closest friends and I love them more then words can say:)

On a side note, the tri was AMAZING on Saturday and I shocked myself and beat my overall time from last year by 17 minutes. I crossed the finish line at 3 hours and 49 minutes BABY:) I was extremely surprised. It was so wonderful having Janey, Mark and Deyl there. I couldn't do it without them. Janey and I set up our transition stations right next to each other and seeing her lovely face at 5:30 in the morning was so wonderful:) Also I was so wonderfully surprised to see Emily, Meredith, Vanessa, Noah, Paige, Summer, Becky, Zach, Erin and Ty all there cheering us on at the finish line. It made my day and crossing that finish line is an experience like no other and I can't wait for the next tri. I thought I was going to retire from triathlons after the SB long course but maybe after next year's Half Iron Man Hawaii:)

Also a big thank you to Emily for not only taking pictures of our tri but for getting up at 5:00 am to make sure I was up, who also was on the sand at 7:10 to see us off, and who was at the bike transition and finish line with a big smile on her face cheering us on. You my dear are one in a million:) I mean a Trillion:)

This week is extremely crazy. Designing albums, designing a new Albumesque website, and launching a new line of ..........BEEP..... It's a secret but stay tuned:) LOL

I hope your week is beautiful and every day filled with moments that take your breath away:)

SB Long Course here I come:)

So this last week I went bowling with some of my friends and all I have to say is I played HORRIBLE. Janey, Steve and Emily rocked the house. I beat Mark the first game by one pin and the next game he beat me by one. UNBELIEVABLE. Seriously Mark and I are pretty competitive but for some reason we couldn't get it together. :) LOL

So tomorrow I'm hoping for better luck. I have to be up at 4:45 in the morning for our long awaited Santa Barbara long course. It starts at 7 in the morning and we have to be there at 5:30. For those of you who know me know that I'm not a morning person at all. I always get extremely nervous right before and I'm hoping I can pull it together for the tri and not let my bowling slump get in the way:) I'm so thankful for the amazing friends who will be racing as well. Janey, Mark, and Deyl, you guys are the best and you make this experience 100 times more enjoyable and I know I will cherish these memories forever:) Also a big thank you to Emily, Vanessa, Paige, Summer and Becky who plan on watching the race and cheering us on, you guys are amazing! See you bright and early. Oh and can we say HALF IRONMAN HAWAII????

Janey and Marky Poo are married:)

The last four days have been a wonderful whirlwind. Janey and Mark got married on 8.8.08. They had four days planned of hiking, luncheons, BBQ's, you name it. The day of their wedding they had a very intimate ceremony and reception with 35 of their closest friends and family. It was an amazing week and I couldn't be more happier for them. I have known Janey for awhile now and she's one of the most amazing people I have ever met. She should write a book on how to be a best friend because being a friend is one of the many areas of where she shines. I never thought anyone would be worthy enough to marry Janey but when Mark came into her life I knew he was perfect for her and he's SOOOOO AMAZING!

I love you guys! You're the meaning in my life you're my inspiration, LALALALALALALALAL!!

Here's a few pics that I've grabbed from blogs and face books from the past week. I was having the time of my life with all our close friends and didn't think to even take my camera. LOL... I knew everything would be documented and it was:)

Click here to see the toast I gave. I wasn't sure I could make it through the whole thing but I did. YAY
