Happy Anniversary

One month ago we were here relaxing on the beach, eating gelato, dancing until 4:30am, having the best food & meeting the best people...  Italy Part I- POSITANO

Hello Charlie

Inspired by my new red leather jacket that I just had to get in Rome (thanks E for helping convince me)  I have decided to become a Charlie's Angel.  I know I know I have no idea how to shoot a gun or even make the appropriate Charlie's Angel pose with the hands (failed attempt to the left).  Today I will fix that with the help of Marine M... what a brave man for taking on this arduous task.  Today will determine if I can achieve my life long aspiration of Angeldom...  Charlie I hope I make you proud! ;)

To find out if Gina achieves the infamous title of "Angel" or shoots her foot off tune in next time...........


... and so it was a SUCCESS!! I had a great instructor learned to load and all the ins and outs of gun safety and shooting!! We shot a 40 and 9mm gun.   I now even have my own membership to the shooting range. I'm sending the following pictures in to Charlie as evidence of my superior marksmanship, and proof he should beg me to join his angels.

I call this one "I bet if someone sees this on my fridge they won't steal my grill again."

and this one is "X Marks the Spot"

You're still by my side...

Come undone, surrender is stronger
I don't need to be the hero tonight
We all want love, we all want honor
Nobody wants to pay the asking price

Fall on my knees, fall on my pride
I'm tripping over all the times I've lied
I'm asking please, but I can see in your eyes
You don't need tears for alibis
It's true what they say
Love must be blind
It's why You're still standing by this sinner's side

You're still by my side when all the things I've done have left you bleeding

Bstuds are famous!!

Thanks to Em's Dad we found out our Race for the Cure team was in the newspaper! See the right side under the names! 

Saturday was great experience, loads of people out there for the race and everyone did a great job on the run even in the SERIOUS humidity.  Oh and everyone loved the shirt I designed, even got the guys to wear them! One of our members was running after just having her baby a few months before, the little man also joined us on the run in his stroller!!

Oh and let's give it up for the USA! Congrats USMNT and Clint!! My Mom called and texted me bragging that she was "at the Dempsey's house when Clint Dempsey scored in the World Cup... AWESOME!"  I think she was excited what do you think! I know Beth must be proud!!

PS Training has begun: 5K in high humidity Saturday morning, then 35 miles biking Sunday morning... feels good to be sore again after Italy :)

Something about a good quote Part III.

God doesn't give you the people you want.  He gives you the people you need to help you, to hurt you, to leave you, to love you, and make you into the person you were meant to be.
