I got this e-mail yesterday, it's one of those things that when you read it you become inspired in a whole new way. Let me know what you thought.

The Story A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, despite having a heart condition said 'yes.' They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.. One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'yes' too. For those who don't know, the Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometers) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometers) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometers) marathon along the coast of the Big Island . The father and son went on to complete the race together.

This is the Link to the video, Take a look and listen to the words.

This evening for supper I made this super yummy recipe.

COOK pasta (I made it with penne) as directed on package. Meanwhile, cook and stir chicken in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until chicken is done.

ADD vegetables and salsa (you can use mild/med/hot); cook on medium heat 3 min. or until heated through. ( I made it with frozen veggies and it turn out jsut as good. If you do make it with frozen veggies, then add the veggies and cook until soft, then add salsa)

DRAIN pasta. Add to skillet with cheese; stir until cheese is melted.

Done! Enjoy!

..changing colors

Well week 2 of work is almost complete, hopefully its a slow weekend that I can put up my feet, pop in a good movie and drink some yummy tea. I watched the hanna montana movie a couple days ago I was surprise how good it was. It's one of those movies you can just curl up on the couch with a warm comfy blanket and relax. Rascal Flatts, Tailor Swift, Billy Raye, and Miley are all in the movie. Some pretty good tunes as well. I would def. recommend grabing this movie on a rainy day.
The leafs are changing colors and i'm starting to feel the chill outside. I'm hoping to get out to capture some of the beauty, I love how each season tells a story. With each color, each leaf, each rain drop, each sun kissed cheek, and even when the wind blows, another page is fliped.

Rookie Update

Thanks to everyone that left comments. I'm not sure what changed but so far so good. He hasn't caused any issues. Its crazy how they know whats going on when things are happening. Jon's on nights right now and I'm on days. So when I get up and leave in the morning, hes so sad when i leave. He gives me those puppy eyes, I dont want to leave because he acts like such a suck, all he wants to do is cuddle. I know i know i'm a softy when it comes to that! shessh they can read us all like a book!

Calling all puppy helpers!

Ok, So this is my issue. Our dog Rookie (seen above) have been very bad lately!
I was on holidays for about 2 weeks and while Jon was at work Rookie decided he was going to pick things out of the garbage can and chew it. Now I understand that this could be very dangerous for him. I thought he was just doing it because he was having seperation issues while I was gone (cause hes really my puppy ;-P). 2 days ago when Jon and myself got home from work, to my surprise Rookie had picked out a ziploc bag and decided he was going to chew it to piece. Yesterday, we came home and he had taken my pad of paper and pen off the kitchen counter and decided he was going to chew that as well. There were pieces of paper EVERYWHERE!!!
I've tried to make him understand that this is not a good thing!
He's never done this before!!! blah!! PLEASE HELP
Kenneling him is NOT an option.

Sorry People, i've been MIA (missin' in action) lately. I took a short trip home, while it went by fast I got a lot done. Knocked off some more wedding things on the list, put together the mock invitation (LOVE IT, THANKS TINA). Spent time with the families and a few friends! It was Kami's First birthday, she started (kinda) walking, she knows how but she!
Steven is growing so fast and is so crazy smart!

Please pray.
