Recent Pinterest Successes

So, I love spending time looking at Pinterest...as I'm sure many of you do! And 90% of the time, I'm looking at recipes and I end up getting hungry, grrr! I really wish I had the time and calories to make every single dessert recipe! There seriously isn't one recipe/picture that doesn't make my mouth water!
I wanted to share some of the recipes that I have tried recently!
1) Zucchini Tots
2) Chocolate Chip Cookie n' Oreo Brownie Bars

I think these all turned out great and I recommend all of them!!

Spring 2012 Adventures

For all of our followers out here...I promise promise promise I will keep our blog more up-to-date this summer!! We have a lot of fun trips planned and I will definitely document them :)
For now, I need to catch up on our adventures this year and the best way to do that is with pictures! Who doesn't like pictures?!

Hobbies: Kayaking, Tennis & Training for a 5k!

I dropped him off at the top of the river and picked him up 2 hours later at the bottom! Can't wait to try it out with him!
We went to the Twin Rivers tennis courts for the first time with the pups! We had 2 courts to ourselves so Mick and Wookie just ran their little hearts out.  Talk about good ball boys!

Chris and I after our first 5k! We completed the 8 week "Couch 2 5k" program (an app on the iphone) and reached our goal! Now we just have to keep it up!! 

I'm just mentioning this because....I really dislike running with a passion, but the Couch 2 5K program has really helped me get over that mental block, somewhat....
Anywho, I, surprisingly, finished 2nd in the 20-29 girls age group...WHAT?!?
Cameron Park Hikers
We've really enjoyed going to Cameron Park, it's a hidden treasure in Waco! Once you are on the trails, it's like you are in a different world.  Yes, don't worry, we only go when it's daytime :)

Mick is loving this!
