Friday I will be heading to Fort Worth, Texas to compete in the South Central CrossFit Regional. Last year I placed 10th. I was third at our sectional in March and qualified for Regionals again. The top four women will qualify to compete in Los Angels in July at the 2010 CrossFit Games.

I've been training hard. It has consumed my thought for the last four months, which is nice because it has helped distract me from my inevitable move to Michigan! I have been through a lot during these last few months and I feel prepared. It is going to be a tough weekend, but I'm up for the challenge. If you want to learn a little bit more about what I will be doing this weekend you can go read this! It lists all four events I will be competing with a lot of other amazing female athletes. I'm looking forward to it!

Even though a lot of people don't know much about CrossFit, for those who do this is a really big deal. It is a real joy to compete again. It puts a smile on my face. There is something so rewarding about getting through a difficult workout and knowing you gave it 100% no matter the outcome. If you haven't tried CrossFit before I highly suggest you look into it. It is for EVERYONE, not just those who grew up playing sports or like to run. If you want to feel good about yourself and get into the best shape of your life try it out. You'll make some amazing friends in the process. Some of the people I consider my closest friends here in Tulsa I have met through CrossFit. I also know they will be my friends for life not matter where I go.

Let the games begin!

I've been absent for quite a long time! How horrible of me! These last few weeks have been insane as I am sure the next few will be as well. It is GRADUATION WEEK which means, yes, my darling husband will officially get his doctor title tomorrow evening! Tonight is the graduation banquet. I'm pretty excited. I'm busting out a dress from college that I have only worn once that I kindly refer to as my "Tinkerbell Dress". I love Tinkerbell. I haven't actually tried in on in a few years, but I'm sure it will fit, right? Yes, it is at least four years old, but I spent far too much money on it to not wear it again. I'm very excited!

Tomorrow friends and family will come watch Kody complete his medical school journey. Although he will never be finished with his education, this chapter in the story is coming to a close. It went by so fast yet felt like it took forever. I'll have lots of pictures and stories from graduation in the next few days. In the mean time, here is the announcement I made for our family. You can click on the picture to enlarge it so you can actually see it better!

What a crazy four years it has been. To think that Kody will start his residency in Michigan in five weeks. Wow. What a life change for us, but we are so excited and so confident in the plan God has for us. We have no doubt that this is where we should be and we are so grateful for what He has given to us!
