Mr. Olympia!

A couple of weekends ago, the boyd and I and a couple of friends headed down to Las Vegas for the annual Mr. Olympia competition and expo. We love to lift weights, so this was right up our alley! As it so happens, I'm writing this blog post before I head to the gym, so I am going to make it short and sweet before I lose my motivation.

My. Olympia in a nutshell: muscles, protien, trashy outfits and a whole lot of fun. Can't wait till next year!

(aren't they awesome?!)

Boyd sorting out all of our protien/pre workouts/post workouts. Next time you see us, we will just be two masses of muscle.
Now off to the gym!

In Pursuit of Courage

I love my sweet husband, and I am so grateful to be married to such an understanding and empathetic individual. I admire his resilience, courage and hope. His perspective on life is more than inspiring, and I'm forever in debt to my Heavenly Father for keeping me in mind when he was plotting out the course of Boyd's life.

Just a thought from Winston Churchill:

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm"
