moving along into 2013 with hope and faith

Wow, am I really going to be 34 in 4 days? where does the time go. it seems like just yesterday I was turning 20 and I thought I was OLD THEN! HA! I surely didn't know ANYTHING back then. It makes me laugh how we always think we know everything at that age when really we are just BEGINNING to experience life.

I have a lot of big things coming up in my life here soon...one is my 10yr anniversary to my sweet husband on Feb.14th.
It's amazing how the longer you're married the deeper your connection grows. we have more patience with each other, more tolerant. We know all of the little quirks of each other  and are better at overlooking them.

WE are about 4-5mos away from having our chiropractic clinic PAID OFF!!!! Holy crap, can't even tell you how excited I am about that because......it means we can finally buy a HOUSE!!!

Yes, we have been in this 950 sqft apartment fro 7yrs! yes SEVEN YEARS, you heard me right.
we have long ago out grown it, but we didn't want to spend money on a bigger place when we could put that money to our clinic payments and get that paid off faster. so we chose to sacrifice alot of things and stay in this tiny 2bdrm apartment. It's been hard, but will be so worth it in the end!

I have started peaking around at houses online and i'm soooo excited. I definitely want/need at least 5 bedrooms, which I know sounds obsurd, but let me explain:
bedroom 1-Steve and I
bedroom 2-Megan
bedroom 3-Eriika
bedroom 4-OFFICE-this is a must I am going mental....NEED an office!
bedroom 5-spare room for FRIENDS/FAMILY when they visit!!!

I have never lived in a big house, ever. we never owned a home growing up, so this will be HUGE for me!
I am sooooooooooooooo excited!!! hopefully we'll be in  a home by summer:) I'm afraid I won't know what to do with all the space though!:/

As I said in my last post, 2012 has pretty much been a wash for me with my running, but i'm excited to start over again in 2013!!

I had surgery on friday so I have to take a mandatory 3wks off and then i'll ease back into running....hoping to have Nikki start training me at the end of January for the Eugene Half marathon.
I want to KILL that race! I need a new PR, I need something to keep me going:)

Even though I haven't had the best running year, I am still content.Sometimes I have found myself getting so discouraged and feeling like i'll never be fast or hit my goals, but I know I can. Timing is everything and I guess 2012 just wasn't my time:) but it will come, I know it will.

well, I guess that's it for now...nothing major to report!;)
Merry Christmas friends!!!


  1. That is awesome about having the clinic paid off so soon!! And you are going to LOVE all that space in your new home! Sounds like 2013 is going to be full of exciting things for you.

    And HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 34. 24. same thing! :-)

  2. I love your new photo! Sooo cute. I can't wait for my girls to be old enough to go running with me! Don't feel bad about your 2012 not being what you hoped for in running, that just means 2013 will be that much BETTER! And congrats on almost having the clinic paid off and getting ready to start house hunting. We have 4+1 bedrooms and pretty simple decor/furniture and we are happy. Lots of room for the kids is great, just don't fill it up with extra junk you don't need! :)
