Be-You-Tifully Fit: Trying to Survive

It's been a while again.  I'm here.  And trying to survive the holidays with the littles, senior year of college, sewing, marathon training and blogging.  This may end up a little more of a catching up blog than anything else.  Post marathon...



I ran an awesome sub 30 minute 5K.


Enjoyed the Marine Corps Birthday Ball with my Marine!  (AND IN A SMALLER SIZED DRESS!)
