Random question: Why does everyone walk around these days with frowns and scowls on their faces?
I was in Walmart earlier and realized that no one likes to smile and be friendly anymore. At least not where I live. Fort Drum has the tendency to deploy their soldiers like crazy and I understand that that can effect the overall mood at times... but I still don't understand. You walk past someone on the sidewalk and not only do they not smile, most of the time they don't even look at you. I guess I'm just getting ready to leave this place. We're hopefully moving to a much friendlier and warm place: North Carolina! We've still got 6 months or so here but I'm definitely looking forward to this move! Keep us in your prayers if ya can.
There's still a lot of unknown and pieces that need to be pulled together. Gracias!

Moving on to BREAKFAST: Oatmeal with 1 tbs. honey, blueberries, cranberries, and chia seeds

Yummy and nice to look at: double win!

Lunch I'm still working on but here it is:

Chicken caesar salad with spinach, tomato, and romaine. Almonds and an apple on the side. I may or may not also be enjoying a cold diet pepsi too ;)

EXERCISE thus far... 2 mile run with Shane and a little over 8 mile bike ride with Kayla being pulled behind. Whoo! Good workout right there. And I'm loving the cross-training too! This afternoon Shane, Kayla, and myself will go for a nice 4 mile walk at a local trail.

And to wrap things up, here's a picture of me that no one asked for but I'm putting up anyways

hippie/9th grade style..whoooo!
Have a great day guys and let's try to smile more! :)


  1. I'll definitely be praying for you as you guys will PCS soon!! I remember what that was like before we moved to FL. NC is closer to FL....just sayin'!! :) I like the 9th grade hippie look too!! :)

  2. Wow, that dress is from 9th grade?

    Yeah, move South- ppl are much nicer down here!

  3. People are definitely not as friendly here as in the south.. I have gotten some of the dirtiest looks for just smiling at people. Keep smiling!

    P.S. Sorry for the tantrums this evening. Spongebob was MIA and the 'mean vacuum' was out lol
