What Have I Gotten Myself Into?

Okay, big news.  Well.  Many big bits of news.

#1.  We went to check out the Green Building this morning and we love it!  They're internet was offline so Stephanie, their event coordinator, couldn't tell us for sure if they were booked for April 28, 2012, but she was pretty for certain they were open.  So hopefully I'll get an e-mail either later on today or sometime this week saying that it's a-go!  Then it'll be wedding planning madness from there on out!  Well, maybe not.  We're going for a simple, but elegant affair, so I'm trying to tell myself it'll all be fine.
The Green Building - Practically the entire first floor of this building will be our space!  With the white building (their courtyard) reserved for our ceremony!  We are uber excited!
#2.  I'm running a race.  Yup, it's been 2 years since I ran my last race (the Run for the Knobs 4 miler - which I did AWFUL in, let's not even talk about my time), and I know a few people doing the entire Louisville Triple Crown (it sort of marks the start of Derby season, with a 5k, a 10k, and 10 miler in successive weekends).  While I'm not crazy enough to do the entire 3 races, I'm willing to bust out a 5k.  And turns out... I'm extremely out of shape.  My sad pathetic one mile run this past Saturday proved it.  Usually, when I go to the gym, I focus more on strength training and toning up, but apparently I need to focus on my endurance.  I mapped out a 1.15 mile run through my neighborhood on Saturday (the weather was beautiful, it was in the upper 50's) and I thought it was going to be an easy and brisk task.  Nope.  I was dead wrong.  I couldn't even make it to the half way point without stopping to take a walking break.  Although it was in the 50's, it was still cold to me, and I couldn't get my breathing down.  Pathetic, huh?  Well, I have until the 26th to get my butt in gear, so any helpful running tips would be of great appreciation!  My goal is just to finish, without stopping to walk.  Kind of sad that I used to run cross country in high school, but can't even do a half a mile now?!

Gettin' ready that last race - I've noticed I was a lot more in shape then!
I made a bunch of bread dough this past Sunday to use throughout the week, it's definitely more helpful and quicker!  So the two loaves I made this morning kinda came out funny looking, so I thought I'd share! 

I love the "rustic" lookAnd it's rainy and gray outside today, so the dogs are being kind of lazy.  Little Zappa has been posted up under Andy's desk all morning!  Must be the life, eh?!


Have a great Tuesday guys!
