3 seconds shy but still feeling really proud

My confession: since last November I have been off again on again with my workouts and probably leaning towards more off than on. I had gained back some weight, not alot but enough to make my pants a little snug. So now I'm totally on again and the scale is quickly diving back down :) Today I almost hit a new goal. The elusive 8 minute mile. I did it in 8minutes 3 seconds, but close enough for me !!!!!! At the half mile mark I was at 4:14 so the last half mile I shaved 25 seconds off my time. More seasoned runners may not be so impressed, but I am on cloud 9! Maybe just maybe I won't look like a total fool at my 5K run in August.

Pet sitting the kids

Cami is our old dark yellow girl and the lighter yellow one is Abbey her daughter. We kept Abbey for the first year of her life hoping she would turn in to nice show dog, but she just didn't have everything we were looking for so we placed her in to a great pet home with a friend of ours. The best part is when our friend goes out of town Abbey gets to come stay at our house and play with her mom. These moments are very special to us and we love having Abbey home as she's a wonderful dog. I love that her and Cami can still be together.

My custom painted front door

Here it is the custom paint job for my front door is complete. It took me much longer than I thought it would, but for the most part I'm happy with it. I'm not sure if I want to add something on the top panels of the door or not. For now though I am spent and it looks pretty good. Hopefully the hubby agrees when he wakes up. I love to surprise him with new paint jobs.
