Best Shorts Ever and other purchases

I purchased a pair of K-Swiss Bound Split Shorts at the Ironman Arizona finisher's store.
I thought they were cute. black - my fave color - witht he IMAz logo ont he bottom.
Little did I know what I was getting myself into...a new favorite pair of shorts.
I love them so much I have to wash them after each use so I can wear them again. I have about 25 pairs of shorts but I only wnt to wear these. So I finally purchased another pair sans IM logo.

this ws a hard decision for me. I love Nike apparel. and one of my dear friends works for Nike marketing their apparel...for basketball at least. I broke it to her that I had a new pair of shorts and Nike needs to change it up to get a pair as wonderful as these. I also like the lining part is also black. not sure why but I think the black looks cooler than the traditional white.

not to fear, Nike, I still found a cute sport top to wear with my K-Swiss shorts.
Livstrong black sport top

Terry stepped up and came out with a pair of tri shorts that I jsut purchased. they may nto be new, but it's been a few years since I have bought a pair, so they are new to me. Terry Club short has the wide waistband as my fave cycling shorts from them. so I hope they make me faster.

I hope this motivates me to start training again.

Mrs. IronGreg

October 11, 2009 IronGreg got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
June 19, 2010 we said I do.

So far married life doesn't seem very different. Although we get to snuggle every night. we enjoy walkign around calling each other husband/hubby and wife/wifey every chance we get.

We still need to unpack from the week away. the laundry is kind of scary.
This weekend the movers come to move me into the new-to-us house.

And what can I say about it
It's humbling that so many peopel came from out of town for the weekend. Girls bought new dresses and everyone got all dolled up for us! as we were heading home on sunday we were tlkaing about hwo we really have the most amazing friends and family. i really don't have the words to describt it. they are awesome. period.

and now back to the real world and tri training. track last night was hard. and hot. 100 degrees hot. on a black track. and swimming this mornign was moved up to 5:30. that 30 minutes makes a difference. especially when going ot bed 90 mintues late. i think i was sleepdriving on my way to work.
some other exciting news...IronGreg and I have decided to go for IMCDA 2011. here goes nothing!

Charlotte or Bust!

Today is the day IronGreg and I head to the Queen City for the wedding.
Tomorrow we get our marriage license and meet with the priest who will officiating the ceremony. He and I went to high school together - I think that's pretty darn neat.
the to-do list is getting eerily smaller.
Family and friends are packing and soon to be traveling.
I have goosebumps.
I knwo this is going to be an amazing weekend. that's the only word I can use to describe what is ahead.
I am in awe of the love from our family and friends travelling...some from other countries...jsut to stand by our sides.
I am in awe of the friends who have gone out and bought new dresses for this weekend.
I am truly touches already. I can't imagine the feelings to come on Sunday.

All the Single Digits, All the Single Digits

okay not quite the beyonce song...but it works in my head.
today single digits start.
9 more days until the wedding.

but the most exciting thing about today...
my nephew's TWO!!!

Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday TD.
Happy Birthday to you!

He really is the cutest and smartest kid around.
I might be biased, but I think my opinion is obviously the one that counts the most.
However, TD and I might have a probelm in 9 days. It's poor manners to show up the bride, but TD sure is going to. My goodness does he have the cutest outfit to wear! Melt Auntie's heart! I can't wait for him to be my honorary ring bearer...he's a bit young to walk down the aisle, so he gets to pay outside with his Mimi and Big (GP's from the other side).
However, now that he's two he has to give up the paci. he is doing a good job at going in the singing potty, though! hey how come I don't get a singing potty?

anyways, back to me. since this is my blog after all.
In 9 days I will be Mrs. IronGreg.
