This summer has gone by sooo fast!!! As we entered into our fifth month of marriage, we faced a lot of new changes and adventures. I took the NASM CPT exam and passed!! I am officially a certifed personal trainer! Woo hoo! I also recieved my CPR/AED certification this month as well. Tim has been such a great encouragement through this whole process- I coudln't have done it without him! I was also "Bar Certified" at Peet's, which means I am officially a Barista!
Today, I had my first interview for a personal training position at Cascade Athletic Club! I am waiting to hear back if I get a second interview- I'll keep you posted! Lastly, I am super excited to be running in this years Nike Hood to Coast relay! It's a week from today! The gala @ Peet's! It's been a blessing to work with such awesome people!
As for Tim, he started back @ Multnomah this week, getting ready for the start of the new school year. The counseling department has been going through some changes, and Tim is excited to see how this will play out with new students and staff. Tim and I have been doing Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred workout and diet plan. Tim is down ten pounds and doing amazing at working out. I couldn't be more proud!!

We have enjoyed spending a lot more time together, as his summer schedule was a little more flexible than during the school year. We used our new fire pit (thanks to Becky and Rian!!) for the first time! Soo fun! We've gone hiking with friends, learning to cook nutritious meals and spending lots of time in the gym!

We also went to our friend Kristin's wedding (well, the end of it actually, since I had to work). It was so fun to see our friends so happy. Tim and I hit the dance floor and had a great time!

Well, thats about it for now. I will keep you posted on the job and Hood to Coast!

Family Dinner!

Tim and I being silly, as usual.

The fam: Dave & Cindy, Vic & Carolyn, Rian & Becky, Victor & Jeanah, Beth and Tim & I.

A couple of weeks ago, we got the opportunity to spend some time with our family and have some sweet mexican @ Cha Cha Chas! After dinner, we went to Rian and Becky's new house for smores in the back yard! It was so fun! Tim got a fire pit from the Merrills for his birthday! Guess this means our house is next for a summer bbq!

Bye bye car....

This is what was left of my car. A week ago, a guy driving down the street hit it while it was parked outside the house. It rolled 250 and came to rest three houses down. The insurance company isn't giving us very much for it, so we are definitely on the look out for a good deal! Praise the Lord no one was hurt and that we have rental coverage.
