May - Sheetload of Cards

Again I just think this is so cool! A perfect resource as I need to make 8 cards because a gal from over at Feeling Scrappy is going to take the cards over to the troops in Germany so they can use them as needed - Sheetload to the Rescue!!!! :) Check it out:
May Sheetload of Cards

I did it!!!!

I did! I actually ran my first half marathon this morning - the Lincoln half marathon and beat my goal (which was 14 minute miles and I did them in under 12 - woohoo!!!!!). I am so excited to say I ran the entire 13.1 miles without having to walk. I wasn't sure I would be able to run it all, but I did. It was a great course and very well put together. The volunteers were awesome - man it takes a TON to pull one of these runs off - there were around 6000 runners - crazy! The crowd support was fantastic which helped me in those moments of doubt! I really did enjoy myself and I am so excited I decided to go for it.....
