I haven’t blogged in FOREVER so I decided that it was probably time! This fall and winter have been so much fun and very busy. Tay and I have been super busy with…

1. School– Taylor got a 4.0 at BYU in his hardest semester yet. He has 2 more semesters until he graduates and applies to Medical School. I also have two semesters left. I am graduating in Communications (PR) WAHOO! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
2. Running– I decided last July that I needed to find a new “hobby” so I decided to try running. I bit the bullet and signed up for a Half Marathon. I printed out a half marathon training schedule and decided to go for it! It turns out that I LOVE running and had so much fun with it. It was a lot of hard work and felt like a part time job but it was so worth it. In 2010 I ended up running a Marathon Relay, 3- 5K’s, 3 -10K’s, and 2 Half Marathons!! I have to thank my two trainers. My dad and Taylor. My dad would ride his bike along side me while I ran ten+ miles every Saturday. He was such a good coach and he better be getting excited to help me train for my FULL Marathon that I want to do next year. Taylor also helped me train, he would wake up at 6:00 AM and run up the Provo Canyon with me. We got stuck in a few Blizzards up there but It was so much fun and I cant wait to do that again next year. Good thing I have LULU Lemon to keep me motivated with their cute running outfits that I am just a little too obsessed with.
3. Holidays– All of the Holidays were so much fun this year. We started Thanksgiving out right by running a 10K in 2 degree weather, yes it was FREEZING I couldn’t feel my face the whole time I was running! We then went to my parents house for a big breakfast with my dad’s side of the Family. Then later that night we ate dinner with Taylor’s Family which was a blast! The food was AMAZING! For Christmas EVE we hung out with Tay’s family during the day and then went to my parents for dinner and the annual Talent show. Let me just tell you the Jackson’s, Parcell’s, Skalla’s, Knights, and Bowerman’s are one talented group! We then had a big sleep over and woke up at about 6 a.m. the next morning to open presents. Then we had a big breakfast, The boys played basketball and we ended the night by playing Just Dance 2. This was the Best Christmas EVER and I LOVE my family SOOO MUCH!! Taylor and I have been so blessed this year and we cant wait to see what 2011 holds for us, I hope its as great as 2010 was!!


  1. I loved all of the updates! Isn’t running wonderful, it’s amazing how addicting it can become! You seriously get a “runner’s high”. And Tay got a 4.0! That is sooo awesome. Good luck with the nursery 🙂
