People are always asking me "is lyle back yet?" "what are you guys doing?" "how long has he been gone?" I know, I can barely keep up with the coming and going either. This is more of a catch up post of our life lately and to tell you about all the exciting goodness that is coming up!
What you've missed:
*Lyle is in Houston still for the next two weeks doing extended
and he won this apple watch. which made his life
and a trip to the Dominican Republic this Fall which made mine
& money towards a team Lake Powell trip in a couple weeks & he
sold 38 last month, even missing the last week to come visit me &
is on track to hitting his highest pay scale (which he has never done)
and pass 200 again! Holy Smokes babe I can't even top your good news.
*I however have been living in Utah, working and taking a class. Not ideal, no. But its done now and I will still be in school for eternity. I figure I'm taking off all the time now to do things I would be doing with all the money from my degree later so it works, right? I WILL graduate though, because everyone should have a degree, and just kidding, its closer than I say it is.
*I also finished my first ever MARATHON-26.2 MILES
I trained (somewhat inconsistently) this Summer & finally completed the Nebo marathon this past weekend. It was one of the hardest accomplishments of my life. Get up at 3:30 am and drive up the canyon to run? Sure thing. I could barely move the next couple days partially because I forgot to request off work and ended up being on my feet all night after I ran. Lyle told me he would remind me about all the pain if I decide to run one again. I didn't walk once though! Although after this one I learned I would probably stop and stretch here and there but you live and you learn. Next up on my list is a Spartan Race or a triathlon.
and Lyle sent me these
*ITS SEPTEMBER and my favorite season ever is here.
* I won the Country Megaticket on the radio by saying who sang a certain song and what was the name of it ( forever ago & it was Luke Bryan so of course I got it) so I have been enjoying some amazing concerts! This Saturday is Tim Mcgraw and I am so excited!!
*MY BROTHER is coming out next weekend. This NEVER happens. I am planning the best weekend for him, starting with some Brad Paisley. Also, if anyone wants to go on a date with him, I will schedule that too. Thanks
*I won an instagram giveaway too!! Free leggings for me and all 3 friends I tagged.
Now maybe you all wont hate me for constantly tagging you in things.
*Murphy is acting out, still not loving this whole single parent home thing...
by hoarding his toys and not playing well with others
stealing the pillows
AND the covers
ruining post workout selfies to dad
and being in places he shouldn't
harassing some innocent horses
and playing hide and seek when hide and seek wasn't a thing...
Murphy is a Measom too and I know you all were curious about his life lately but soon enough he is going on a vacation of his own when I fly out to MD in a week and a half bc Murphy gets to go too. AND I get to find out the gender of my sisters baby!! I am so excited that I get to be there for such a big announcement!
*Lyle was just out here for a visit after almost 8 weeks of not seeing each other. NEVER again will we do this. We saw Luke Bryan, took anniversary pictures, and explored Southern Utah. But there will be more pictures of all this soon!
*After I pick Lyle up we are going to explore Cali
*THEN NEW ZEALAND. I literally can't event. We just booked our tickets. We are stopping at Fiji on the way and then heading up to Thailand and some other exciting places over there for a few weeks.
*New York/Home for Christmas. New York at Christmas time is the best thing on the planet. And this year we get to spend Christmas Day with my family. We really won't be around much this Fall so SEE ME NEXT WEEK GUYS. Or the end of October.
We are trying to work out a few other things this Fall too so we will share more with you later. All these sacrifices these past few months are so worth it! I know I am always so excited but there are so many amazing things to be excited about in life and I'm just super happy with it all.
Now you know everything, I love you all, I need to go work out, bye.
