I have to share my point of view right now about how disappointed I am with NBC for canceling one of the only mildly entertaining comedies on television right now, Samantha Who?. Not that I have much time to watch television lately anyway, but finding out that this cute little show with a cute little actress, Christina Applegate, and an even cuter leading man, Barry Watson, will not be gracing us with a third season put a frown on my face and made me think of all the other cute little shows that didn't last but should have including the series Pushing Daisies and even a little known series called Love Monkey that showed a whole 8 episodes in the later winter of '06. But it's my belief that CBS had too high of hopes putting a new series on against the Winter Olympics! I mean, I know not everyone has a tiny little crush on Tom Cavanaugh like I do(also known as the star from the series Ed) but the music of Teddy Geiger should have made it last more than 8 episodes. Wouldn't it be great to turn the channel from the many reality television shows that are pointless and rediculous and just get back to watching a great sitcom again? Maybe in the future they can cancel some of the terrible shows that are on television now that make me wonder who in the world could be watching this crap! Don't get me wrong, I love reality tv (I'm a shameless watcher of America's Next Top Model, American Idoland The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but sometimes enough is enough.)

So, this post is to brag about the cutest little key fobs that I have bought from my friend Heather. She makes them herself and sells them for a very good price and they are so cute and handy! I love the fact that you can put them around your wrist and be hands free while carrying your groceries to your front door. These are a few of the fabrics she has right now, but if you are interested in getting your own Key Fobs (and who wouldn't be) , and to see the fabrics she has available just go to her blog here. I hope you like them as much as I do!
On May 2nd, my niece and I participated in the Cincinnati Flying Pig Toyota 10K event and had such a great time! After deciding on the last day to sign up that I wanted to participate (2 weeks before the event!) I talked Aubree into signing up with me and I am so glad we both did!
It was such a great experience and after wondering if we could even finish the event, since neither one of us had ever run in a race, we actually did it in less time that we had thought we would! I am so glad that my awesome niece is here to hang out with me while Michael is gone, but due to the amount of sore muscles we received I doubt I will be able to talk her into anything ever again!!
We Are So Cool!
The race began at 8am on Saturday and ran us from the Great American Ball Park in downtown Cincinnati where the Reds play, across the Ohio River through Kentucky back across the river past the Bengals Stadium through Downtown and back to Great American Ball Park. I felt so excited when I finished where they gave me my medal with a pig's butt on it and Aubree and I had a ton of adrenaline for the rest of the day.
I am so happy I was able to participate in the Flying Pig since I have wanted to since we moved here and this was my last chance, and I am also excited to sign up for some more events once we move to Los Angeles!
Michael and I were married in March of 2004 in the Bountiful LDS Temple. I most recently worked as a middle school English teacher in West Hollywood and Michael just finishing up is FINAL year of Architecture school at UCLA. We adopted our beautiful baby girl Amelia in May of this year. We've had many great adventures in 8 years and we can't wait for more to come!
