 A brief update for all those wondering.  I did not do the 75 km Bike Ride yesterday.  I opted not to do it yesterday.  Here’s why:  With the weather, near 40-60 km winds, feels like 4 degrees and I hurt myself standing still? No way I wouldn’t have hurt myself on the bike and or both gotten sick. If I get sick, I can’t see Jeff’s mom. So it wasn’t worth the risk to me. Everyone that I spoke with afterwards regretted it and one woman I talked to said she was in the bathtub at that point for 2 hours and was still unable to get warm.  So while I was super disappointed and regretted not going  but whatever, money was still raised. I know I could’ve biked the distance, but I honestly don’t have anything to prove to myself by being a hero and possibly risk injuring or making myself sick.  Priorities, right? On Saturday, I passed my holster certification course with flying colors.  Come on, was there ever any doubt?  😉

  • It’s okay to sit a race out every now and then especially given the fact that you want to see the hubby’s momma and not get yourself (or anyone else) sick for that matter.

    Sounds like you had a great weekend and congrats on the holster certification! Also second picture it looks like you have a two-headed dog 🙂 SO cute!!! XOXO

  • I think you had a great reason for sitting out of the race. You definitely do not need to get sick and miss out on seeing your MIL. You have no idea how much I wish I had a MIL that I wanted to see that much.

    Sounds like a great weekend. And I am so thrilled to have you as part of the giveaway!

  • Thanks girl… still a bit disappointed and frustrated how it unfolded… Oh well

    Lol that second pic was taken as we were on our way to my moms and the boys just get over the top excited to see their Nana. 😉 it’s so cute!

  • Thanks for the kind words and reassurance. I had a ton of people come up and ask me today and so I’m still a hit frustrated about how it went. But priorities, right??

    Listen, there still is hope for your MIL. My MIL and I didn’t always have a great relationship… And then a couple years into dating she snapped out of it when she realized I wasn’t going anywhere. Hopefully one day you’ll be able to have a relationship, even if it’s not quite like you pictured yourself having.

    Thanks so much girl! A ton of coordinating on your part, which we all appreciate. 😉


  • Yes, priorities! Glad the race still raised a bunch of money though! I’d spend the cash on a camera lens. Or towards a camera lens. The one I want is pricey :).

  • Thanks, it was so tough to say no and not do the ride though!

    Ooh new camera lenses are fun! I’ve always wanted a fish eye… Too expensive lol

  • Awww your dogs are so cute!! And I think there will be another bike ride and it is good thing thing that they did raise the money 🙂

  • They are SO cute. The little one in the pics is my moms newest dog, tallulah. She’s growing like a weed.
    Me too, I’m glad it wasn’t all for nought. Next year there will be another big one!!


  • Sara Strand

    Er man…. $170 would totally pay for Olivia’s dance camp. *crossing fingers!!*

  • I’m crossing all fingers, toes and limbs you win Sara!!!

  • Kim Munoz

    I would take pack up the boys and hubby and take a trip to the beach. Oh I miss the beach! And the boys have this crazy fascination with staying in hotels! LOL Im glad you have priorities. Freezing doesn’t ever need to be one of them! Gotta stay healthy!

  • That sounds like a great plan – I’m not a fan of the fresh water lakes here. I like the ocean better so I might come along if you win ;P

    Yep that was my thought. My health is far more important. 🙂

  • Nikki Frank-Hamilton

    Congrats on the holster certification. You rock! And smart move, the race would have been dangerous and the likelihood of you getting sick was high. There will always be another race, and you put in the hard work, you got the gain! Ribbons and finish lines will wait for you at the next one! xo

  • I completely agree. People were sick all last week so I know I made the right decision. 🙂
