I ran the Dallas Rock and Roll Half Marathon with my Sister In Law Kayla and my cousin. I have to admit, the main reason I wanted to run this race is because I heard that the DCC were there last year and I missed it!!  They are AMAZING!! I love their show on CMT!

We celebrated Christmas with our families and had a fabulous day!

The rest of 2011 and the beginning of 2012 hasn’t been all that great. This will turn around, I know – I’m just in a down mood and need to get over it.

I hope you all enjoyed your New Year’s Celebrations!  I spent the evening with my friends watching the ball drop and playing games! We had a great night!

How did you celebrate?

Happy New Year!!
