Goodbye Lola

First of all, the boys and I are OK. Friday morning on our way to school, the boys and I were in a car accident. A big white SUV hit us on the back rear tire and the Jeep rolled over! We ended up in the median upside down and the SUV that hit us took off. But, by the grace of God we all got out of the car and walked away with just a couple of cuts and bruises. I am really thankful for all the people that stopped and made sure that we were ok. There was one man in particular that got the Hurricane out first and helped get Travi and I out of the car. There were a lot of people that called 911 for us and one lady let me talk to the dispatcher on her phone. I wish I could personally thank them because that small act of compassion meant so much to me.
My husband was my rock and I know he must have been scared to death from the time he got the call that his family was in a rollover accident and that we needed him to come to the scene until he saw for himself that we were ok. He got our insurance moving and took care of the police report and even picked up my stuff out of the Jeep. Thank you honey for taking care of everything for me!
My Jeep is a total loss. :( I really loved that car and I'm going to miss her, but it did it's job and kept my babies safe.

In other news, I didn't get to participate in the Duke City Marathon. I let too much distract me from training, and then I missed the deadline to even register for the walk. It all worked out ok, since we had the accident on Friday and the weather was really crappy yesterday!

Celebrating 8 years

We decided to go to Las Vegas at the last minute to celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary which was October 1st. It was literally, the last minute. The Hubbs booked our trip on Thursday for us to leave on Friday. So, we flew out on Friday evening and we stayed at Treasure Island. TI as they call it. TI has a Starbux INSIDE. Take a left from the elevators to the gift shop, make a left and follow the smell of sweet ambrosia.
Besides my fav. coffee place, we walked, and walked and walked, and then walked a little more. We ate dinner, and then walked!some more!
I really like Vegas and since neither of us gamble, we just had fun walking, did I mention that before? Also, it was uphill. Both ways. There wasn't snow, but it was like 20 miles on each side of the strip. Honestly.
We went to the Venetian, which has a Dooney&Bourke store, and also a man that looks like a statue and only makes the tiniest of movements. TI also happens to be right next door to the Fashion Show mall! BTW-this mall has TWO Starbux. Just sayin'. We also got to eat at the Hard Rock cafe, which I was especially excited to take The Hubbs to, because they have life size statues of KISS made up in all their glory. I also tried a mojito for the first time.

So, I know I said I would post pictures, but we realized we are very big on taking pictures, so I don't really have any to share. Well, maybe there is one that I can dig up...

I met Chris Nunez from Miami Ink! The hubbs spotted him in the lobby and asked if he would take a picture with me! He is my favorite from the show and I couldn't believe it when we found out he was booked for an appearance at the club in our hotel. M even made reservations for us to go, but we decided we would skip the club and just go walking! again! Anyway, on our way out, we saw him in the lobby. (after I had the brillant idea of taking out my contacts, putting something "comfy" on and not even putting on some decent lipstick! Which doesn't matter because I wasn't trying to impress him or anything, but if I'm getting a picture w/Nunez, I will obviously want to share it, and why didn't I look better?!!? GAHH!) That's all I have to say about that.
Thank you M, for treating me to a weekend away. Thank you for the past 8 years of sticking with me through thick and thin. It's mostly been thin or thick. I guess it's a matter of perspective. But, we are working on it and we haven't given up. Thank you for your commitment, encouragement, love, generosity, and forgiveness. I'm thankful to God for putting you in my line of fire life. You truly are my best friend and my love.
