Friday Blog Hops & A Special Blog


Hilary poses statements for completing on her hop, this week’s statements are:
1. I have got to be the worst cook in the world, luckily I have friends that are excellent cooks so help is always on the end of the phone!
2. Although for the most part I love it, sometimes I wish I could just get rid of my i phone.
3. The best thing about where I live are my fantastic neighbours.
4. Aside from a new house, car or big vacation, the first luxury I would buy myself if I won the lottery is a boob job, tummy tuck, nose job, liposuction on my thighs, tummy, and bum oh and a pair of Jimmy Choo's!
This weeks Special Blog is The Becker's
Here is what Shawn has to say about herself.
I am a wife, mother,grandmother, sister,aunt. registered nurse and friend. I love to spend time with my family and watch my kids parent theirs! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about thirteen years ago but I do not complain or dwell on it! I have two blogs:the first talks about my family and the fun we have, the second is a journaI for my marathon training. I started running five years ago after a very stressful year. Erin, my daughter, suggested that running could be a great stress reliever. I had never been athletic and probably had never run more than a city block at one time. With her patience and understanding, Erin would walk/ run with me. At first I could only run a few minutes before I was gasping for breath but I stuck with it and soon I was able to run 15 min without stopping! Since then I have completed four half marathons. My goal has been to run in a full marathon. Now is the time!
Please show Shawn some love and give her a visit here, she has some lovely photographs on her blog too.
