No Big Deal ... My Blog Is Now HOT

Isn't my blog amazing? My cute cousin, Brooke Firth, helped me change my blog from an ugly polka dotted nightmare to this cute thing. She designs blogs and has quite the knack for just about ANYTHING. I'm quite fortunate to be related to her. Thanks, Brooke!


Updates, updates!

I got a job - working for Farmers Insurance. I had been there for about two months ... but now I don't have a job again ... because it turns out they didn't need me. SO, I'm back to the fun thing that is searching for a job. Yay! (Insert sarcasm here.)

I've also joined a coed soccer team. Wait - you might be asking - have you ever even played soccer, Liz? The answer is, no. I never have played soccer. But, do I like to get in people's faces? Yes. Am I extremely competitive? Oh yeah. And do I need to work out? You betcha. So, I'm now playing soccer. It's been a ton of fun, actually. I'm not great, but I've gained a HUGE amount of respect for soccer players. They are athletes in every sense of the word. Running around (sprinting) nonstop for 45 minutes and then doing it again for another 45?? Wowzers. I get winded after about minute number 3. It was also nice to do something different. I usually do coed softball this time of year. Look at me branching out and trying new things! Yeah. Big deal.

Half-marathon update: Um, the half-marathon is in less than a month. Am I prepared? No. I ran 7 miles the other day INSIDE and that about killed me. So, I have only a few weeks to whip my butt into shape. I will run this half if I have to crawl across the finish line on my hands and knees! (I'm really hoping it doesn't come to that.)

On a completely unrelated note, I took two showers today. It felt great. Deal with it.

Is it just me or are there NO movies out right now? We were completely bombarded with movies at Christmas and now there's some Miley Cyrus (spelling) lame film they want me to see? No thanks. Robin Hood comes out in May (can't wait) and so I guess I'll avoid the movie theater until then. Oh, I heard that dragon movie was cute, though. Maybe I'll drag my butt over to see that.

Ben has less than 10 months left on his mission! It's going fast now!

Toodles for now, peeps.

Liz

Yay! You updated... Finally! You might think your life isn't intersting but quite the contrary my sweet little Lloyd. The blog is adorable!! Maybe now you will find some motivation to keep it updated. :) have fun with soccer. Doesn't sound fun to me. You and your baby cousins have something common- except they play soccer with my bladder, not a round ball! Loves!

Two showers are amazing. Maybe one day you'll experience the three a day. And if you get crazy, you can beat my score of five in one day.

Also, there are movies coming out I want to see...even before Robin Hood.

Heck, I take two showers a day almost every day. They make my day. Can I say "day" again? Ok. Day.

Lizard! I miss your lovely face!!! I'm glad for the update. When you described crawling across the finish line at the half marathon- I thought of Michael Scott and his 5K....

Oh my heck, love your guts! And love the new blog! Glad to see you updated it because I was concerned about it before - not. cute. :) And I think you should take 2 showers any time you feel like it!

It is pretty damn cute if I don't say so myself. I'm super glad you like it and that you got an update in. Maybe we should see a little more of that. I'm super proud of you for the whole half marathon thing. I kind of think I ruined myself doing one and I don't see it happening again. I think you're funny. I'm glad you're my cousin.
