dance, dance, dance... okay, stop dancing.

It's definitely spring time and my reality show viewing pleasures are adding up, unfortunately. I don't know what I did with out a dvr for the 24 years of like previous to being married. I mean, I am obsessed with my shows once they get going and I love just being able to catch up and fast forward through commercials. Dancing with the Stars, The Bachelor and American Idol are the only three that I'm super addicted to, but I catch myself "dvr-ing" something just because I can! Silly, I know.

Anyway, DWTS last night was intense... it was like, "I can't wait to see the next person" because the cast is thebomb.com! Typical, I know... but they're fun people to watch. Okay, so Buzz has got to go... poor thing, he's just old and you can tell.

Kate... she struggled. Oh did she struggle. BUT, I totally give her props for getting out there and dancing. I will not bash her... just like the judges said, all of the other competitors have had some type of training or athletic ability, but she's just a mom. You go girl!

Neicy Nash. Eat your cheeseburger. Do it for the thick girls. I love it!

Pamela. Oh, Pamela... was she drunk, or high, or what??? I mean, she was over the top! I will give her props on her incredible legs though. They were smokin' hot! She was all over her innocent little dancer boy, too... he needs to get her under control!

Erin Andrews. I envy you. I would LOVE to have her job... and, she danced well too I believe. I think Maxim is a great partner for her and there's definitely some chemistry going on!;)

85-I liked you quite a bit more than I thought I would. I must say that when you legally changed your last name I thought you were such an idiot and you didn't even spell it right in Spanish. However, your cocky attitude is on FIRE and your so light on your feet. Your confidence won me over. And, I will also add that Cheryl Burke has got him on lock down--- she's the perfect teacher for him!

Evan the ice skater. I just don't know what I think about him... he looks like a puppet to me.

Every season while watching DWTS I always want to take ballroom dance lessons--- anyone want to join me???

Basic Crafts:)

I'm always looking for a craft project to complete... Jason and I did some major spring cleaning this weekend and he found (well, they were never lost. But he compiled them all together) all of his patches from the Air Force that he's collected thus far. He talked about wanting a "patch board" so I made a very simple one and we hung it in our laundry room. Looks good to me!

The best part of the weekend was getting so much of our basement organized and throwing out old "stuff." Our neighborhood does a big yard sale in May so for now, we have tons of our "junk" downstairs waiting to sell. If we don't sell it, we'll take it to Goodwill after the yard sale. One man's trash is another man's treasure, right???


The 2nd Annual "Brewfest" was held on base Friday night and we were a bit hesitant to attend. We didn't know if it would be any fun, if the beer would be any good or if it was even worth the $10 fee to enter. Luckily, we were very surprised! We had the best time with Jake and Kim and the beer was delicious! There were probably 10 or 12 "home brewed" beers, including a root beer that Kim must have filled up on 10 times. Although we didn't even like the "winning" beverage, we had such a fun evening with great friends!

St. Patty's Day 2010

Jason and I are always looking for fun new things to do around town. We're also always on the lookout for new runs or "active" things to do to keep working out exciting. We certainly found that on St. Patrick's Day with the Blarney Stone 5k run sponsored by a local running shop. It was such a nice evening--- a bit chilly but the sun was shining and there was no snow! The run didn't begin until 6pm and when you finished there was pizza and beer! I didn't run with my camera so all the pics are from after the race at the car... obviously, being silly.

It was nice to run on some of the paved trails around Omaha. There are more then 150 miles of paved trails around town. I'm excited to explore as the mileage for the marathon training begins to add up! The Blarney Stone 5k took place on part of the trail--another great reason to run!

Winter is ending.

I hope. Yesterday was beautiful-- 65 and sunny. Today, on the other hand, there's a chance of snow and the high is 43. Ouch.

Spring officially begins tomorrow and everyone around Omaha is just itching for sunshine and warmer temperatures. It was so fun yesterday to sit outside and watch all the kids play--- Marian, Lisa and I did just that for four hours yesterday. Just like summer time... it was delightful!

Jason and I are having our first official "spring cleaning" tomorrow and I'm definitely looking forward to getting some of our junk out of house and garage! It's ridiculous. You'd think we would have been married for five years with all of the stuff we've collected over the past ten months! Our closet is stuffed full, our drawers are overflowing!!! And our basement... wow. We have a LOT of work to do!
