Heather (right) has been a dear friend and one I have looked up to since 1994. She is a strong and dedicated woman and mother. She and I have been there for each other through very hard things as well, and we have been a good source of strength when we have both needed it. We keep each other in check!
These two wonderful ladies have been dear to me for half of my life, yet they just met each other for this race. It's odd to me, but that's the story of my friend life. They both came out to my house for a....you guessed it...a sleepover!!! A real life girl sleepover! With nail polish and candy and everything! It was so much fun. I haven't had a sleepover party for years. :) They came to spend the night so we could all ride together to UVU for the "Color Me Rad" 5K race!
Who better to run a super fun colorful race with than two of my best buddies?!
Well, I just HAD to have my best buddy of all there with me too...my hubby buddy! My MAN!
Off to the races in the morning!!! Pics to come...

I HAD to try it out, these drinks look delicious! And coconut flavored tonic water? Yum! I haven't ever been able to choke down tonic water on it's own, it tastes like Alkaseltzer, which is a nasty heartburn medicine.
I am starting Lifetime Wellness next Monday and have been looking for alternatives to the Dr. Pepper I am going to miss dearly. I love coconut, so I thought I would try this cute little drink out. Just the coconut water is nasty, but once I added fresh squeezed orange juice, chopped strawberries, a drop of lime essential oil, and (of course) a pinch of raw sugar, it is DELICIOUS!!!! Here is my creation:
And yes, you must drink it out of a mason jar. That makes it cooler.

They made ice cream sundae's and loved putting on their own toppings!
Syd turned 8, and 8 is the age we decided to have the "big talk" with her. Andy, Syd, and I all got dressed up and went out to dinner at Tuscany. (The photo above is the chandelier at Tuscany.) We told her all about the beauty of how life is created, and it was fabulous! The idea behind telling her so young is this: If she hears the truth about everything before she starts to hear the wrong/distorted/worldly views on sex, she will have the confidence to ask us questions, know she can talk to us about it, and realize that she knows the truth. Because she knows how beautiful it is, she has the respect for it that it deserves.
