Well, it's been way too long since my last posting so I apologize for having a boring blog! We've had so much going on lately, it's been all I could do to just keep up with life :) But I'm not complaining, mostly it's all very exciting.
Last weekend I completed my first triathlon... and for those of you who are impressed right now, you shouldn't be!... I really didn't train for it as well as I should have so I was happy just to finish the race! Carly, Derek,and I "competed" in the sprint triathlon. So we swam 1/2 mi., biked 12 mi., and finished up with a 5k. It wasn't my best workout ever ( I puked twice during the run) but it was still a good experience and I'm already thinking of doing one next year. At least now I have a better idea of what to expect and how to train better :)
Another exciting piece of news is that we're in the process of buying our first home!!!! We're supposed to close on July 3, so hereafter the 4th of July will represent my independence from landlords and property management companies!!! I was going to post pictures from the real estate site, but I was too late and they've taken it off the website, so here's an outside shot and we'll post more pics once we move in.
