Save A Sister 5k

Last weekend Kesha and I had the privledge of running in the Save A Sister 5k. It was a blast and I am very proud of Kesha! We though for sure that our time would be 40+ minutes but as we rounded that corner to the finish line I glanced at the clock and it said 37 minutes. I turned to Kesha and said "Now's the time to break your time!" and we took off running our hearts out! We ended up finishing in 36 minutes!!



The best part of the whole race was seeing all the pink!!!



Katie, Kesha, Grete and I at the start line waiting to send off our balloons.

Kesha and I wearing our stickers that say: "I wear Pink for....Julie Schmutz"


Katie and I.


Another group shot before the start of the race.

Can't wait for next year! This is probably my favorite race....mostly for the cause.

I WEAR PINK FOR.....JULIE SCHMUTZ!!!!

Monday Must Have

1- This bedroom set is to die for and my inspiration for mine and Casey's room.


2- Cute way to document all the places Casey and I will travel....for now it would only be SLC, Vegas....oh Cancun and soon Kansas City, MO.


3- Khloe Kardashian-Omar's shoe collection! All those red soles.....HEAVEN!!!!



4- Perfect Saturday/Sunday outfit! I have a new obsession with flats and watches....I dont own either of them but I love to owe and awe over them and DREAM!


I have decided I need to find more ways to post. So Monday Must Haves are a great way to do this....and hey with Christmas coming up....its a great way to throw your Christmas list out there to family members....**wink wink**

Nisson Park 9-24-2011

On Saturday my parents took Kory out to lunch for his birthday and asked if Kesha and I would babysit. Sure leave us with the ADHD children! Of course we accepted, especially since my mom offered to pay for lunch!

We decided to let Hailey plan our day. Her first request, Chinese Food for lunch. So we headed to Panda Express, which we later found out she doesnt like. Her exact words "My Chinese store is better then yours. I dont like yours."!

Hailey wanted to eat lunch at the park so we headed to Washington Nisson Park. After eating lunch Hailey and Rilee discovered the ditch....the pictures below show just how much fun they had.

All in all we had a very fun day with Hailey and Rilee.

Casey's Birthday!

Casey's birthday was on Saturday, Sept. 17th. For my birthday Casey bought me a mtn bike so I knew there was NO WAY I was going to get away with only giving him a card for his birthday. I had been stressing like crazy trying to figure out what to get him. My dad helped me pick out a remote control helicopter and I was all excited to by it for him! Monday, Sept 12 I was driving home from work and it hit me like a lightening bolt as to what I was going to get him.....DUH Kansas City Chiefs tickets!!! Casey's family are HUGE fans so I knew it would be the perfect gift!

I am horrible at surprises but am very surprised with myself that I held out and did not give it to him until Saturday morning! The reaction on his face made all the money spent worth it!!

I had planned to make him breakfast that morning so while he was trying to post pictures of the tickets to facebook I hit the kitchen and started cooking. I had full intentions of taking a picture of the yummy breakfast I made....but obviously failed miserably at that....just take our word for it...breakfast was YUMMY!!

The rest of the day was spent at Casey's coworkers house swimming, eating and having a blast!!

The crazy group.....
Of course have to throw in a few of us....





He is like a little kid holding his present....pretty sure he carried it around with him all morning like it was his blankie :)




I am one lucky girl is all I can say!!!

Cancun, Mexico (9/4/2011 - 9/9/2011)

Back in January Casey's coworker invited us to go to Cancun with him and friends. Of course we couldnt pass that up!! Resort/flight were all booked in January....which made for a VERY LONG wait to September. The day had finally come and we couldn't have been any more excited!

Saturday afternoon we headed down to Vegas to start off the vacation. Our flight was at 6 am.

Arriving in Cancun was a very different experience for me, seeing as how I have never been....a) on a big plane and b) out of the country! The final desent into Cancun you could feel the heat! It was so muggy...needless to say if my hair wasnt curly in a bun it was in a hat!

We stayed at an all-inclusive resort called "Excellence Playa Mujeres". If anyone is looking into a trip to Cancun I HIGHLY recommend you stay there! The staff are all very professional and friendly!

While in Cancun we were able to swim with the dolphins, explore the island, go snorkelling and relax by the pool/beach.

It was the best vacation I have ever been on! I hate being back to work but I love being home!

Now for picture overload....ENJOY!!!!

This is our room....
