Freshly planted today!

Pregnancy

This post may be a tad late, but for posterity sake – I’M PREGNANT! I have just begun my third trimester (week 28) and I decided a few pictures of the belly progression should be on Shelblog. First photo: 7 weeks pregnant

Image

And then no photos until today at 28 weeks. Oops.

Image

Maybe next pregnancy I will be better at taking more frequent pictures of the belly. But probably not. 

Henry Joseph Schluterman is due April 20th!!

West Virginia Wedding Weekend (and more!)

Let’s get this Shelblog thing going again, shall we? Here are a few photos from Kerrin and Elaine’s wedding weekend. Image

We were greeted by a little bit of snow when we arrived on the farm.

Peter!

Practice makes perfect, right Emmy?

Emeline is not adorable at all.

Wedding Craig struck early. Photobomb!

HogEye Half Marathon

After a year of laziness in Oklahoma (no time, too flat, no motivation, etc, etc… the list of excuses goes on and on) we have turned over a new leaf in Arkansas. With our new jobs comes predictable hours, so exercise has once again become an almost daily staple. For me early morning gym workouts before the 7:45am work day begins, for Craig a nice lunch time run through the streets of West Little Rock. So with our new found love of exercise we decided a goal needed to be made and obtained.

**HOGEYE HALF MARATHON, FAYETTEVILLE, AR APRIL 15TH, 2012!!**

Image

After training for 3 1/2 months, Craig and I drove the 3 hours to Fayetteville and waited nervously at the start of the race, a race known for its hills. Unlike the Little Rock Half Marathon, which is relatively a flat course (but unfortunately for us was booked solid by Dec 2011) the Hogeye is known for its hills. We train in Little Rock. Lets just say we didn’t get a chance to run very many hills in our 3 months of training and on race day we were nervous!

And it was Hilly. And Hard. Very Hard.

Image

Image

But we finished!

My goals were to:

1. complete the race without walking

2. finish by 2 hours and 10 minutes

Craig’s goal was to:

1. beat me.

We both accomplished our goals.

Craig crossed the finish line at 1hr 53 minutes!!!

I crossed the finish line at 2 hrs 8.5 minutes!!!

Image

Exhausted but happy!

Thank you to Marie, Lyle, Ella, Luke, Cindy and Kenny for coming out to support Craig and I! And especially for taking pictures :)
