So, I realized I would post some travel stuff and I have completely slacked on that. So, here's the past 9 months or 274 days!

Our travels started off spending New Year's Eve in Amsterdam!

The ladies who went spent New Year's Day playing at the North Sea (it was a little cold).

We spent MLK weekend in Paris! This is the view from the Towers of Notre Dame.

In March, we went off to Berlin!
We also took a trip to Luxembourg but apparently didn't take many (if any) pictures.

For Memorial Day, we took a trip up the Rhine and Mosel Rivers!

And then my parents came to visit! We traveled to Paris (again)....

And Salzburg!

And Munich!

We will be heading to Italy for Labor Day! Munich for Oktoberfest and London for Thanksgiving. I hope you enjoyed the photo tour of Europe. More to come.

July Tracker

1. Survive Amsterdam. 
2. Lose weight (at least 15 lbs). I think just about everyone makes this resolution. I'm still losing! I haven't hit 15 yet (but that would be a bit unhealthy if I had). But the scale is moving down!!!!!
3. Read at least 12 books. 
4. Run at least 4 more half marathons. I'm going to assume this goal will not happen. I'm only registered for two distance races this year and the marathon next year. 
5. Improve 5k time to under 35 minutes. I'm working on this one. And we're registered for a 5k at the end of September.
6. Improve half marathon time to under 3 hours. I've seen some encouraging times on my Garmin while running. Here's hoping my work will may off.
7. Commit to Jillian Michaels DVDs for 90 days (30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, and Buns and Thighs). Again, this goal isn't happening so much. But I'm not ready to give up yet.
8. Start training for a marathon.  
9. Cook at least three meals per week (only one of which can be pasta). We've gotten really good about this. But I won't be able to cross it off until the end of year. 
10. Only eat out once per week, unless traveling. Again, we're doing pretty good on this one too!
