Holi Festival or The Festival of Colors

russell, sam, mike and i went to the holi festival at the krishna temple in spanish fork.
it was an absolute blast!!! i think i will just let the pictures speak for themselves.

fresh faced and not knowing quite what to expect

this was after our first attack.
we hadn't even bought powder to fight back with.
love the blue eye though

russ actually did that to himself.
it looked awesome though!

after one of many powder fights

we're in there somewhere

tossing bags of colored powder

trying not to breath in too much dust

way too much fun!
throwing handfuls of chalk at total strangers was a riot!
i will definitely be attending next year.
want to come?
hopefully it will be warmer {it is a spring festival, after all.}

On Our Way.... the Festival of Colors!
Pictures coming soon!!

I've never observed lent before, and I am not entirely sure why I chose to this year,
but I have given up carbonation.

That means no

for 2 whole months!!!

The first couple of days were the hardest...I was tired and my head hurt...and I had the soda fountain at work taunting me every time I filled a customers drink...but I'm over it. almost.

{We probably shouldn't talk about the dream I had last night about root beer}

I never thought that I was addicted to soft drinks, but maybe I was, just a little.

Are you "addicted" to anything?

Have you tried to give it up before?

How'd that work out for you?

Two weeks down and Only 33 days to go!

How 'bout Eggs?

I'm getting ready for Easter.
I've decorated {for the most part; I need to get my Easter Tree up}
and have planned a couple of Easter Projects

This video has me laughing.
The whole thing is pretty funny, but I posted it specifically for the part at 1:15.

That being said, I am excited to dye eggs this year! I found this post on one of my favoritist blogs Our Best Bites. I then found a box of 60 100% silk ties for $20 on Ebay. I spent a Saturday prepping the ties for my project and now I just need to patiently wait till April to dye eggs. {really really don't want eggs sitting out for a month and a half}

Do you have any fun ideas for Easter decorations? Care to share?

Races Anyone?

I made a sort of goal this year that I was going to sign up for a race a month all year to help keep me training.

So far I have:

June: ?
July: Park City Mountain 5k (Third year in a row)
Deseret News 10k
August: ?
September: The Dirty Dash (SO excited about this one!)
October: The Halloween Half (Will be working up to this one all year)
November: ?
December: The Winter Sun 10k in Moab (Also the 3rd year in a row)

Remember when a 5k seemed like the impossible dream? Now, with three 10k's under my belt, they even seem doable. It's the half marathon that scares me. I know I can do it! Last year I signed up for the Halloween Half but gave up my training due to pretty severe shin splints. This year I am taking it slow and working up to my long runs.

If you hear of any races in those missing months let me know. I would love to run a race in California, Washington or Oregon. Anyone want to join me?

PS Last year I told myself that I couldn't run at night so I didn't. Well I just totally proved myself wrong! Yee-haw!
