I tell the twinlets to go get ready, this is what I get.

This proclalimation was two-fold. Don't go get a 6000 calorie white mocha with whip, lose weight. Lose weight, reward self with 6000 calorie white mocha.
Seemed like a great tool for motivation.
Only I have no will power.
Awesome. Not only do I have the voice in my head telling me I shouldn't be drinking that Mocha, I now have a 7 year old keeping tabs on my habits too.

So, the time has come for me to get excited about Sunday Football again. In order to do that I'm going to need another team to cheer for. A team that will actually have a winning season.
I'm not jumping ship on my Dolphins, I will always pull for them regardless of who they play, even when they play my "new team." No new team will ever take their place. In picking a new team, this condition is non-negotiable.
Over the past week I've been pondering my options. The husband has been lobbying hard. Here is what I've come up with:
- Go back to the 49'ers. I've liked them since I was a little girl, too. Mostly because I loved Joe Montana. Even if he did when his 2nd Super Bowl at the expense of my Dolphins. He was a great Quaterback, They're a good legacy team.
- Pick a team that's as local as possible: Falcons, Titans, Saints, Panthers, Jaguars (maybe) - Of course for an Auburn fan the Panthers would be the obvious choice. But husband argues that you shouldn't make an expansion team, "your team." Plus, what happens when Cam gets traded?
- Ok. So, expansion teams are out and that leaves me with the Falcons or the Saints, if I want to stay somewhat regional. I really don't know why, but I can't see myself as a Falcons fan. So that leaves the Saints. The team that the Husband has been pressing hard to the hoop to sell me on. I'm not opposed to the Saints, but I feel a little Band Wagon-ney. Post Katrina, Super Bowl Champs and all.
Can you make a case for another team? I'm all ears.

Today was the big day. The Birmingham Color Run. It was a blast.
I have to say that when the storms woke me up this morning at 1am, I was thinking it wouldn't hurt my feelings if the whole thing was cancelled. In addition to not being a runner, I don't play in the rain. It's not a good look for me so I tend to avoid it at all cost. But today, once we got to the track where the race was being held, it was apparent that if I was going to participate in the "happiest 5k on the planet" I was going to have to play in the rain. Frizzy hair and all.
So, we embraced the constant rain and downpours and went with it and it was the most miserable fun I've ever had. We were soaked completely to our skivvies and our shoes squished when we walked but Boy! Was it fun!
Here is our day in pictures:
We did manage to get one good shot when we were all shiny and clean and the rain was just a drizzle.
Some of the girls wanted to run a little. Some of us decided to take our time and document our 5k - Skipping, and dancing our way through the color zones..
I would do this again in a heartbeat. Rain and all. Although, I'm hoping for a dry experience next time. I won't lie.
I'm also hoping that I'll stop picking rainbow boogers out of my nose in the very near future.
We Are Color Runners!
