Not too much goin on!!!


I guess some times it is a good thing when you do not have much to blog about:) I have been doing a lot of nothing....trying to get my house organized...going to soccer....... getting ready to travel to San Fran for my brother-in-laws wedding....going crazy trying to get the suits and flower girl dresses ordered ALL my kids are in the wedding... talk about a lot of $$$$$$$ being spent on something they will wear ONCE..I could rant on that forever.....but I guess it is a happy day (eh right..ha) I also have the challenge of picking clothes out for my mother-in-law...she needed some major help:) so where does that leave me...YIP still dress less....What am I going to wear????? Any IDEAS????????

My running is coming along....as much as possible...Todd has been traveling a lot, but I am still managing 30 miles of running in a week three 10mile runs...I am enjoying the weather change...still warm enough to wear sleeveless shirts, but cold enough to bust out the running tights....For some reason I don't like having anything on my arms when I run....So if you see a nut running in Splish in the middle of winter that possibly could be me:) By the time I reach mile one I am hot as heck and have to start stripping:) I am also trying that thing called STRETCHING...I hate it...but I think since I am getting old I need to fit it in...(so that is me stretching in photo) Thrilled I know :)

Not much more to report....Looking forward to a little(solo) trip to Florida to visit with my Mom and watch Clearwater championships...so if you will be there let me know so I can cheer you on:)


Happy training everyone!!!

I hate having to spend all the $ on weddings. I spent enough money in 2007 to pay down our monthly mortgage because my kids were in so many weddings. Great job on fitting in the running - it is so tough when they hubby travels.

Wear the splishy and you'll blow them all away!

rr said...

Sheesh - hello supermodel! Great photo :) Have fun at the wedding and in that gorgeous city!!

Wes said...

Just don't get carried away!! LOL! Make sure you leave SOMETHING on :-D

A solo trip to Florida sounds heavenly for you!! Getting to see the Championships? Entirely jealous!!!

Damie said...

Mel, your pictures speak a thousand words! :) I love the way your racing flats coordinate with everything. Glad you are getting the running in- it reminds me of Madonna back in the day when she would run 10 miles per run. I think, though, that you could beat Madonna in both a race and fashion contest.

I still remember the pics of you sitting in your suit out in the snow last year!! LOL!! I hate stretching too, but I am finding that I have to do it now. I guess it is part of getting older. Nice pic by the way. :-)

Mel - in the interest of me not being able to visit your blog anymore.. no more amazingly hot pictures of yourself!! My wife came walking by and she says, "so who's the hot piece of meat.." So I had to go into the whole explination of how she's the most amazing wonderful and beautiful wife that I could or would ever have.. geeeshh.. ;-)

I hear your pain on the whole wedding thing.. Us guys have to pay to rent the tux.. at least you get to keep what you buy!

Mira Lelovic said...

Lucky you, having a solo get-away to look forward to! Bet you can't wait?

Glad to hear you're still getting your miles in! Love the outfit!

I so have no opinion on weddings. They really do have the best parties (well, at least MY friends do)! Although as all my friends have gotten married and I have stayed single I really have spent a ton on bridesmaid dresses, gifts, bachelorette parties, and lingerie showers... Now that I think about it, I really should pull a Carie Bradshaw from SATC and have a shower celebrating my single life and my commitment to me. Ha!

Have fun in San Fran and FL Mel! Take lots of pictures of your adorable kids!

Marni said...

Hey sexy momma! I will be in clearwater! We can cheer on kate and everyone else!

kerrie said...

how fun that you are going to clearwater!!!
don't even get me started on weddings, lol....i just think the $$ could be better spent on other things instead of clothes "they will just wear ONCE". oh well, hopefully it will be a fun trip and great to see everyone :)

Marit Chrislock-Lauterbach said...

Yikes - sorry about the wedding money! That is no fun. :( And, for the record - I hate stretching too. But its something I make myself do. Most of the time... :) Great job with the running! Keep it up!

Trigirlpink said...

Even your nails look good. I think I'll go hide under a rock now.

Have fun on your trips! Signin' up for IMFL perhaps????

Sarah said...

MEL!!! WHEN ARE YOU COMING TO SF?????

I want to meet you, even if it's for a little bit!

I hear ya on the wedding thing...isn't that the dumbest thing EVER? Like, here, spend ALLLLLLLL THIS MONEY so you can wear this ONCE IN YOUR LIFE...ugh. I swear when I get married I am not doing that.

Anyway, tell me when you're coming out!

Jen said...

A solo trip to Clearwater! That's going to be great :)

The wedding thing is SO frustrating! I was so happy when my sister decieded to go casual for their wedding...skirts and flip flops.

Eric said...

I hate stretching too but it has become a necessary evil :-)

Eileen Swanson said...

Oh Mel, we have got to hook up when you are in town? When will you be here? Tell you kids they get to meet Belle ;-)

Seriously, let me know.

XO,
E

Can't you just ask them to elope? LOL

Yes, you'll find it is a love / hate with stretching but eventually it will win you over!

Have a fun trip to the nuptuals...

BreeWee said...

Oh my gosh, you look super! I bet Todd just loves having his super model wife in the road!

Enjoy the trip...and the wedding... eat cake :)

Emilee said...

I hope you post photos of Jason's wedding!!!! I can't wait to see!

Melissa said...

Hey Mel. You're hot.

I just got married in July and felt bad about asking people to spend $$, that was the hardest part of wedding planning for me (seriously, it was). I don't know if there's a Jack and Jill shop near you (ours is in Cincinnati), but my flower girl got her dress from there and they had some nice sales. It was so cute! And I put my nephew (ring bearer) in the cheapest rental tux possible, it still looked like the other tuxes b/c they are so small you don't notice the "cheap" differences.

Good luck!

p.s. IM Louisivlle??? ??? ??? I read Eileen is doing it too! You know you want to :-)
