My Little Princess

Hey Everybody,

This is Rand. Just wanting to put up a small post and let Madi know how much she is loved by her husband. She means the world to me and I want her to know it. Even though I had to work on Valentine's Day until 6 p.m., she still was patient with me (after I convinced her to be...) and we had a fun night with dinner and a movie. She makes me smile daily and I love her for it. She also makes me grow everyday in a different way and I am grateful for it even though it isn't always easy. I'm even grateful that I can get up and help her get her lunches ready for work even though I always complain about getting out of bed:) So.....Madi, here's to you and how wonderful of a person, wife, and friend you are to me! I LOVE YOU!!!

Happy Valentines Day! I just really want to thank my wonderful husband for everything that he does for me. He honestly makes me always feel loved, and beautiful everyday, even though i deny it. He is the perfect ying to my yang, and that I have come to understand is something that is such a treasure in any situation but especially marriage. I love him and just wanted to share this with him, and anyone else who reads our blog, he is loved!! So I found some cute quotes that help illustrate this great day of LOVE!

"Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. one who is constantly reminding you of how he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... the one who turns to his friends and says, that's her...."

" Love is as much of an object as an obsession, everybody wants it, everybody seeks it, but few ever achieve it, those who do will cherish it, be lost in it, and among all, never...never forget it."

"We were given: Two hands to hold. To legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was  given to someone else for us to find."

So I thought that I would let everyone know how crazy I am. That's right I called myself a crazy person!! When I told Rand or anyone else my plan they have all said you have to be insane to do that! So to let you all know I competing in the Triathlon that I told you about a couple posts ago, as well as... I am running a Relay in good 'ole California with some of my cousins! Its going to be hard but I think I can do it. I have been training for both really hard as of late thinking that I can get a head start and get my butt in the swimming pool (since that is my weakest event in the tri) and running pretty much everyday if not doing both as often as possible.It will be alot of fun having alot of family around for the relay, that will help with the motivation side I think. As for the tri I think Katie and I keep each other going! I am really excited and hope that I can accomplish all that I want to this year. So if you have and tips or tricks for me leave a comment so I can be better prepared, we all know its better to be over prepared than under!
