The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5K on the Planet, is a unique event that celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality. Now the largest running series in the world, The Color Run has been experienced by over 7 million runners worldwide in 40+ countries.

This was a fun run I got to do with Cornerstone Young Professionals. The Color Run comes to Phoenix every year and does these crazy 5K’s where you get doused with colored powered. Then you run through bubbles at the end. This tour was their Dream Tour and it was held at Rawhide Western Town in Chandler. I wore my multi-colored wig and had fun doing this 5K with good friends.

Christmas Party

MYA Christmas Party 2012

I love Christmas parties. It’s fun to see everyone get dressed up and celebrate the holidays together. I am blessed to be a part of a wonderful group of friends that I get to do life with and grow in my relationship with God with. We had a white elephant gift exchange and lots of great food. What a great night of fellowship!

Our family Christmas card this year

It’s that time of year again. Turkey Day is over and December is upon us. The decorations are up and I’m excited for advent season this year. The boys and I have tons of fun things planned as well as some great serving opportunities out in the community. I’m thankful to have family and great friends here to spend time with and enjoy the holidays with. I’m also looking forward to eating some yummy food!

Thanksgiving

I love cooking on Thanksgiving. I’ll have the Macy’s parade on in the background followed by some football games while I cook. It’s fun to plan and organize all the ingredients and what to cook first so that everything comes out hot. I just love how cheap all the food is at this time of year. Best advice I heard is to take your list of sides and cut it in half (I have a tendency to make too much). This year I had the honor to cook for several people without family, so I bought an almost 25 lbs turkey. This year I brined my turkey with a killer blend from World Market. Some of the sides I made were a green bean casserole, sausage stuffing, deviled eggs and pumpkin pie. I’m thankful my turkey came out great!

We had over fifty people show up for our Thanksgiving dinner. It was a blessing to serve them and eat and fellowship with them. I saddens me that Thanksgiving gets overlooked because it is such a wonderful holiday. I love spending time with friends and family in community over food.

Neon Splash Dash

IMG_0908

IMG_0793A bunch of us ran in the Neon Splash Dash at Firebird Raceway. It’s a fun 5K race that is very similar to the Blue Man Group show in Vegas. You run through 4 different Glow Zones, where at each one you get sprayed with a different color of U.V. glow paint. Then there is an After Glow party afterwards where you glow with the backlight. They have live bands and continue to spray the crowd with paint as you dance the night away. I had a blast with my friends running the race and hanging out afterwards at the party.
