It's actually nice at 645 am

I've started running. Yes, I know what you are all thinking? Running? Mycah? Do those words even belong together in a sentence? I have been waking up at 645 and I run. Not far. And I am usually completely out of breath about 5 seconds after I start, but it's all good. I have my earbuds in, so I can't hear people snicker as I huff by. I am thinking about starting a training program for a 5k. It's an 8 week training, but I think I will do it for like 10 weeks and do one in August. I have such a love/hate relationship with running. I have been really focusing on clearing my mind while I run. That way, the whole time I am not thinking. "I hate this. I can't breathe. This SUCKS!" haha I only think that about half the time now! I would love to do a 5k with someone, but I donno. We'll see. If you are interested, I am going to be looking at races today, so comment and let me know.

It's getting to be gardening season! I am SO excited! Green thumb over here!

It only took 6 months...

and we FINALLY have callings! Yes, that's right. We hung under the radar for 6 months before getting called in our new ward as Family History Consultants. CRAZY! I was totally not expecting that calling! I am super excited about it though. For our wedding, my Aunt Maureen and Uncle Jack gave us a Book of Remembrance. She is the family history person on the Workman side of the family. She has gotten family history done down through about the late 1300's. My grandma is a convert and we don't have a lot of history on her family, so I am excited to head down to the Family History Library downtown (I'll walk since it's SO close!) and find information on the Mullis side of the family. I also can't wait to learn more about Andy's family. His side of the family is a little bit easier because he comes from two long lines of Saints. Lucky dog! I have always been really interested in history in general. And I know this is something I am supposed to be doing!

Will is a crazy little bugger. He is running all over the place and getting into everything. Yesterday was such a gorgeous day, after nap and Church, we played outside and all he wanted was to play in the dirt and carry rocks around! Such a little boy. I love it.

In other news, I have lost 15 pounds! That's right! I did it! I am now at a reasonable weight that I am not so intimidated by saying, I need to loose 25 pounds! Talk about scary! I have developed a habit of choosing good foods and it is really sticking. When I eat junk, I get a tummy ache. I learned over the last three weeks that I LOVE CARBS! I just LOVE bread and pasta. Oh, yum! I got a new recipe for Honey Banana Bread and I can't wait to try it!

Spring Break: The Finale!

This is our cutie pie after his bath. So fresh and clean in his sweet robe! He is seriously so big!

On our last day of Spring Break, we hiked Ensign Peak. Will loved the hike!
I took Will on the hike down. Our Dueter is amazing! Best investment yet!

Andy took Will on the hike up. I love my boys!

We hiked Ensign Peak which is just down the road from us as part of our SB adventures! It was our time to test out our new Dueter carrier. It was a nice day, and when we got to the top, we had a little picnic. It was so nice.

On Friday, Andy and I celebrated our 2nd Anniversary! We dropped Will off with our sister and saw Alice in Wonderland! The, we picked him up and he stayed with Andy's mom for the night. We went to eat at Red Lobster! My favorite place ever! I got the ultimate feast! Yuuuum! After dinner, we headed up to Huntsville and stayed at a cute little bed and breakfast! It was so nice.

This past Wednesday, we FINALLY got to go to our concert!


He was amazing! He was the BEST performer ever. I have never seen such an amazing show, and I have been to a lot of concerts. It was great to hear good songs. He kept thanking the audience for spending our hard earned money to come see him. He had a great opening group called Naturally 7. They are a Capella and amazing. I suggest everyone go google them right now. He came out for an encore. The last line of the last song, he stepped away from the mic and he sang to us WITHOUT the mic. That right there puts him in the number one spot of my top singers. To be able to SING to an entire stadium of people WITHOUT a mic and actually sing it, not yell it, and have everyone hear it, takes talent. Andy and I will go see him, again, and again. It was the best anniversary/Christmas gift we could have gotten each other!
