Loves of my life!

So in light of Valentine's Day I thought I would highlight the loves that I have in my life!

First of course is my wonderful hubby! Not to be bias but I really do have the bestest husband ever (for me!) I feel very lucky that Kev and me have had almost 8 years together just the two of us (minus the dogs!) We can look at eachother and know what the other is thinking, we love just hanging out the two of us, we tell eachother EVERYTHING (sorry, if you've told me a secret there's a good chance he knows it!) I won't go on with juicy details, but he is the cheese to my macaroni!

I love this little Miss. I know, it's a dog but she is my baby and I love that she never runs out of kisses for me!
These two are my loves too! They are always my best running partners, and will love me no matter how much I ignore them!
Now this crazy group of people can drive me crazy, but I would never want them to far away! I think that I am very lucky to have a family that always wants me around and is always supportive of whatever I do!
This group of people is proof that I am very VERY lucky! How many people can say that they truely love their in-laws (all of them!)? I really feel so blessed to have these people in my life for forever!
There are of course many other people in my life that I have great love and support from but these peps get the highlight! Thankyou for the UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! I loves you all for forever!

2011? No plans!

2010 was a great year for Kev and me! We did alot of fun trips this year and got lots of great times! Here are some highlights of the last year:

Kev went on a bear hunt in Montana and got his first bear! Lucky me, it's a full body mount that'll be here within a few months! Kev has picked out it's "spot" that it is going in the living room. It's going to be awesome.

We went to Disneyland for the 7th year in a row! We love Disneyland and have been going since we were dating!

Kev then went on a elk hunt and got this huge beast! Ya I don't know where he thinks this thing is going but it is NOT my living room!

We also celebrated our 6 year anniversary! We have accomplished so much in these great 6 years! We are so excited for 2011, there are lots of new things that will be coming this year!

One day in November I told Kev that I either wanted a baby or a puppy! So guess who showed up with this sweetheart THE VERY NEXT DAY! haha! I love my little Dixie so much!
Umm there were tonz of other fun things of the year, but lets focus on this new year! I have realized that I suck at making "resolutions" so I'm not! But I do have goals for the year! Like:
-I want to run in a half marathon this year, with a goal time of under 2 hours (putting me at a 9 min mile!)
-I want to compete in a triathlon (specifically Salem's Triathlon on June 14th). My goal time? Haha ya right! I just want to finish it!
-I want to lost XX lbs in fat(yes it is in the double digits) and gain 5-8 lbs in muscle!
-I want to get all A's in all of my classes and I want to be the top b*tch in my class! :)
-I want to make sure Kev has the best 30th bday by taking him to Cancun, all payed by me! That means LOTS of over time, but it's worth it!
-I am going off my birth control in August! Ya I know, where finally ready to start a family (with babies, not dogs)! haha. We are both very excited about this, August can't get here soon enough!

Does that make me crazy?!?

Ok. Been a while, I know! I'm a busy girl OK! On October 30 I ran my first 10k. I was training for a half marathon, but backed out at the last second (literally!) and honestly I'm glad I did! I ran the 10k in 62.52 mins, which is a 10.06 miles/min, which I am proud of!

I'm wonder woman, DUH!
We had to wear a costume to the run and I wore the easiest thing I could think of! I know it doesn't really make alot of sense, but oh well! I am now training for a half marathon that takes place in April and a Triathalon that takes place in June! Crazy huh?
And this is Dixie! The newest member of our family! I know, I know, another dog! Kevin suprised me with her two weeks ago and I just love her! She is the sweetest thing ever! This is her sleeping with her bone!
Here's Dixie making friends with Tucker! Sweet huh? I know you're all thinking 'just have a baby already!' but I want to wait til I'm done with school and that's another year and a half away, and I'll admit I want a baby, but that's what Dixie is for now! haha!
Soo, I guess I'm crazy on two accounts now huh? :)

Kevin's Elk!

Kevin went elk hunting over the weekend and got this beauty in less than 5 hours! haha! he's very happy and excited to say the least! It's a 7*7 and is HUGE!

I don't know where he thinks this is going to be hanging!
Haha. This is Kevin driving down the road. There's the elk body on one side, the head on the other and the fourwheeler right in the middle!

Sweet September!

September was a busy month for us here at the Slider residence. Here's a little look over the last month!
-We went on our yearly trip to California at the beginning of September and had a great time! It was nice to get away for a little bit!

Of course we had to spend a day at the beach. Highlight of the day at the beach? Walking down the beach holding hands and seeing dolphins jumping in the surf!
We went to an Angels game, my first major leage game ever! It was lots of fun, even with a crazy lady behind us, and a way to excited newly weds in front of us!
Of course we stopped in Disneyland! Here's us on a ride having way to much fun! I love that we have been to Disneyland every year since we met! It's out place!

-We hung out with this awesome couple! We met Em and Mike on our cruise last year on the last day and have kept in touch with them ever since. Em was here to run a marathon, so we were lucky enough to have a nite to hang out with them in Park City. There is only a slight height difference between us (may I also say that I am wearing my biggest heels I own and it still did nothing for me next to them)! haha
-I got inspired by Em to start running more, more specifically run a marathon (one day). I got these AWESOME new kicks and am up'in my milage and endurance each week! I am so happy/excited to have this thing to build up to! Love the challange!
Other things that have happened in September:
-I started nursing school! So excited to be able to see a light at the end of the tunnel!
-I went down to part time at work.
-Kevin decided to go on a big elk hunt at the end of October. He is BEYOND excited, he cannot sleep at nite sometimes cuz he get so excited! haha!
-I am trying to get ready for a half marathon at the end of the month! Ya this month! CRazY huH?
Umm that's all I can think of right now! So ya!
Don't be a silent stocker, leave a message! I swear I'm the only one who looks at my blog! haha

Shut up and run!

So I have been inspired! I want to get my butt into shape and I have been inspired by this crazy fun chick: (you must read the LOL'ing post, laughed with tears comming down my face and she has a SWEET give away going on that is a must have!) and this wonderful hot friend of mine: (who just came up from AZ to run the Top of Utah run). So what have I been inspired to do, run a freakin' marathon! Ya I know, crazy woman! and i'm not saying that i'm doing one this year, though there are a few half marathons that have caught my eye (, you get to run in a costume!) I have already ordered these sweet running shoes (i love pink) and have added almost 2 miles to my regular run!

wish me luck! and don't bother telling me that i'm crazy, i already know that!

6 years baby!

I cannot believe that we have been married 6 years (together 7). We have accomplished lots of dreams and been on some amazing vacations together! We have loved every minute of the last 6 years and can't wait to see what the next 6 hold! xoxo (ps our anniversary was on the 6th, so this is a little behind)!
