My first 100 Miler on the Bike...

I had a blast riding my first 100 miler on the bike yesterday! I went with a bunch of great friends to Madison to ride on the Ironman course and the Olympic Course. The Olympics are coming to Chicago and the bike course is in WI!!! It is near Bluemounds which is a HUGE LONG hill! We made it to the top and coming back down some of those hills was the craziest thing I have EVER DONE! I think my top speed was 44 mph!! The wild flowers were tend to miss those in the car! I am so lucky to have met some of the most amazing people who are showing me the ropes! I really could NOT have done this ride with out them!! I would have been on the side of the road in the fetal position a few times! My coach, Jim Boldra, who is training me for the Half Ironman at High Cliff (and begging me in his ever so subtle way to do the full Ironman) is amazing and made sure I was ready for this crazy ride! If you ever have the chance to try something that is new, kind of scary, and really outside your life give it a might really surprise yourself! I have surprised myself beyond my wildest imagination...and you know feels really good!

I am thinking V-Rod

The Garage Party at Harley was AMAZING! What a blast! If you have EVER been interested in getting a bike you should do this! We learned how to pick up a bike...and it was SO easy! We got to ride a bike on the you wont CRASH! It was really great to feel the bike and to learn how to use the clutch in such a safe environment! The best part of the night was meeting all the people who work at Harley! The are all so nice and so much fun! You can tell they all LOVE working there and are really just sharing their passion of bikes with the rest of the world!

Which BIKINI girl are you?

So Bikini girl from American Idol is PISSED about Kara coming on stage and ripping off her dress! She said Kara has a terrible body...that she needs a spray tan and that she looks to be over 50 years old! WHATEVER! Kara is a ROCK STAR! I think she looks amazing! You can tell Kara works out hard! NO fake boobies on her!

BTW Kara got a TON of money for her favorite charity for doing this! LOVE IT!

Updated title for the worst patient in the world...

So Doug gets a new title! He has been such a good patient! He had his surgery yesterday morning at 8am and we were in the car driving home at 10am! That is insane! He was pretty wooggie on the way home and I was NOT sure how he was going to get in the house....but he made it! He was out of it for most of the day but then he just seemed to snap out of it! He was up and moving around...looking for food! He even helped Cole with homework last night! He sat outside and even sat on a stool in the kitchen!

He said to me last night...I think I could go back to do the show tomorrow! YIKES. I think we need to move a little slower big guy! I do think it is a distinct possibility that he could be back for Monday's show!

He has been such a great...(I hate to say it) LOW MAINTENANCE patient!

The WORST patient in the world..

So Doug is the worst patient and he is having surgery tomorrow! I am preparing myself to have as much patients as possible! I am hoping they give us enough drugs to get him through! He is hoping to be back on Monday but the doctor said he should take a week to recover! I bet you a million dollars he will be back in this studio on Monday!!

I should say wish him luck but I really need you to wish me luck to deal with this guy!

How can someone this cute be so high maintenance?

Check back here for updates!

So, this adorable girl, Kelsie, is our next door neighbor. Her mother, and one of our dearest friends, passed away this past summer! We wanted to make her prom so fun and so fancy that she didn't have time to think about her mom not being there. Her older sister did her hair and make-up and we all took a million photos! She really looked amazing! She was so happy! Her boyfriend, Josh, was stunned when she walked out! My jeans and sweatshirt wearing girl next door was looking so GREAT!

Her mother was smiling up in heaven! I just know it!
