Let's start from the beginning....
Kelsie: "Hey Amy, wanna run a half marathon with me?"
Me: "Uh.....nope!"
Kelsie: "Matt will pay you... :)"
Me: "........."
Kelsie: "$100 a mile :)"
Me: "...OKAY"

Yes everyone I have decided to run a HALF MARATHON!! And Matt has downed the cost to I think $800 total..So whatever that is a mile.. haha

Kelsie has convinced me that it will be fun and a good idea...(good idea, in the fact that I am getting $$ out of it haha). 

So we started our running last week on tuesday, so today was the second week of running.. We were supposed to run just a mile today and then our long run (on Saturday) was supposed to be 1.5 miles. BUT Kelsie and I didn't know how to mark out just a mile... So we actually ran 2 MILES! HAHA

It felt way good to run that far, but definitely HARD. 

So far I have been staying pretty on schedule with what I am supposed to run everyday... Today I ran 1.5 without stopping, so that is good... Hopefully it will get easier.. 

Mother's Day was on Sunday. Yes, it was my first Mother's Day and it was amazing!! Matt and I sort of celebrated on Saturday though. He took me out to California Pizza Kitchen (YUM) and gave me an awesome present, some new running shoes! I love them tons!! 

Nike Free TR Fit Women's Training Shoes
Okay so these aren't the exact pair that Matt got me. He got me some way cute purple ones, which I loved as well, but I just kinda like these ones a little bit better. And actually I ordered a different pair before I ordered these ones lol! Woops-a-daisy.. Anyway let's just say I LOVE THESE SHOES!!

On Sunday we went to church and Matt's co-teacher (who owns a cafe) brought in some chocolate covered strawberries. MY FAVORITE! 

After church we went over to my parent's house and had an amazing pot roast dinner and played the WII with the family.

All in all I must say that I have the most amazing family! I am so grateful to be a mom to the cutest little boy ever! I just hope that I will be the mom that he fully deserves! I love him and Matt so much and I am loving every minute of having my very own family!

Thanks so much for the best first Mother's Day!!


  1. Yay for Mothers! And better yet, yay for mothers who are getting in shape!!! We can do it! :)

    I'm happy you had a Happy Mother's Day, and I want you to know that you are an AMAZING mom! Seriously, Cohen and Matt are lucky to have you! :)

  2. You are so lucky that you are getting that much money for running a half marathon! You will do great! Trust me it definitely gets easier! I love your new running shoes! Shoes make all the difference when you are running! Happy first Mothers Day! You are a great mother!

  3. That's so exciting! One day I want to try and run one too, but who knows if I'll ever get around to it. Good luck!
