11 Very Random Things

2- Our spending money goes towards running and racing together.  It's sooooo fun.

3- I saw an inmate walking down the street yesterday.  Of course it didn't compare to what Sarah and I encounter on our walks.  See you tomorrow boys.
4- The Nine Secrets of Happy Couples.  <--- A marvelous list!!  Partake of a read!!

5- So I've been to the dentist 7 times in 5 months.  I had my first two cavities filled (adjusted, re-adjusted, removed, re-filled) and still cannot chew.  My seester and I have extra-sensitive-dentists-are-stumped, kinds of mouths.

6-  My sister's Mini Greyhounds turned 5 this week.  (I sure miss mine.)

7-  Today it is in the 80s.

8-  We hit one year living in Arizona in less than three months, thus I have started to apply for jobs in two specific locations to maybe open some doors cities wise.  I'm dying to join a runner's club somewhere!

9-  I've lived in Washington (Spokane), Kansas (Kansas City), Utah (Layton) and Arizona (here).  Ben's lived in ...allover Arizona, Micronesia Guam and Vegas.

10-  I think we will both be in our 30s when we start a family.

11- I haven't taken my toe rings off once since I put them on 11+ years ago.   (There perhaps is a reason I choose navy blue nail polish...)
