No not permanently but I have been enjoying my hair straight the last few days. I decided I was was sick of my hair and tired of going to Supercuts to get it cut since nobody knows how to cut curly hair(it must be done straight!) So I booked an appt at Paul Brown salon and after 5 hours this was the result...yes 5 hours! I personally love it. I think I will wear it straight more but curly most of the time. I love the color and how healthy it is now. Feels good! So I have so many pics of my active little kiddos but I feel like I need energy just to write about them! I will do that tomorrow after 15 caffeine pills...ha only kidding but if you have some send them my way hehe OK hope everyone had a great weekend. I never post pics of myself so I thought I better do it while I remember. Umm...yes one more thing... TEAM FLOATIES ROCKED IT!!! Karyn...you are stronger than you think and you were amazing out there...winning your leg of the race! That's what I am talking about! Mike ok you are fast! I didn't give you enough credit for your running ability. Way to go Nicole for bringing it home for the team and Tim...you must be a stud too. Sorry I just had to give my shout out to them. I am so proud! :)

My sister is doing her first ever race tomorrow...the San Diego Rock n Roll marathon. It's so crazy b/c I trained for this race for about 5 years in a row...got hurt every single time and never could run it. Now my sister, who has never been a runner up until recently, is doing it!! I am so thrilled for her love of running now! Karyn is doing the relay and is starting it off with 6.5 miles. So she has a big job to do to get her team in the lead! I know you can do it sis!! I just wanted to post a few tips and words of encouragement for you...
There will be thousands of people with you waiting to start. Feed off their energy. It's exciting. Just don't let the excitement make you start off too fast. Remember your pacing tomorrow. Remember what you told me earlier...about that run we did as little kids and you pushed yourself to stay with me and you finished even though you wanted to stop. Find me out there in the crowd tomorrow...I will be ahead of you but don't let me out of your sight. Stay with me the whole time!!! It will push your comfort zone but that's what racing is all about. Finding your limits...what you are capable of. Remember that it is just an hour or so of your life and that is nothing! You can run your butt off for an hour!!
Don't start out the run cold...meaning make sure you do a warm-up. Do a light jog when you get there and do a few sprints...like what you did on Thursday's workout. Do some high knees and just make sure your muscles are nice and warmed up. I know you are going to have a blast! The fans cheering you on will be so awesome. You will become addicted to racing after this! I am so proud of all your training and hard work. I wish more than anything I was with you tomorrow running with you and cheering you on the whole way. You are going to kick some butt out there and call me as soon as you can, ok?? I love ya and I am so excited for you!!! Team Floaties is going up against Sushi Lounge and they are going to rock them!!

Melia and Troy...so cute. They love each other so much. It doesn't seem that way, though, when Melia takes every single toy Troy can get his hands on and bops him on the head with toys but she gets more than happy to see him and same with him. Such a contrast these 2 are...
