Legends and Creepers

Weekend report:
Friday night we were able to watch 4 tennis legends play in person! I surprised Shane with tickets to show him how proud I am of him! (It has been 2 years this month since he opened the doors of his Real Property Management office! He's come so far and he's pretty amazing if you ask me. Totally proven himself). We watched Agassi beat McEnroe, and Sampras beat Courier. Then we got to witness one of the biggest rivalries in the history of tennis - Sampras vs. Agassi. We moved down to the floor seats and watched Sampras win in a tie break! Way awesome to see them play in person.
Saturday night we braved the local haunted house!
We went with our fun friends Kayla and Mike Delano, who snapped these shots of us in line. These creepy guys were outside and spooked me pretty dang good a few times. (I was sitting on a chair in line because my legs were shot after running 18 miles that morning! My longest run ever - it went well, surprisingly. Meanwhile Shane had an awesome 3 hour surf session with my bro Alex.)The haunted house was fun, but not nearly as scary as some we've been to in Idaho and Utah. But it was a fun night, nonetheless.

Running in my sleep

So, I'm running a marathon next month. Yep. My first marathon ever. My brother Brian signed up and talked me into it. I think he's having a suburban-dad-life-crisis.
There's a studly woman in my ward who invited me to run with her hard core ladies running group. She's been inviting me for years. Here's why it's taken me this long to join them: they run at 5am! But I need major motivation to train for this I am now a 5am runner. I didn't even know 5am existed before now.

I get up at 4:45, I'm home at 6:30...and back to sleep at 7:oo! It's hilarious, I know. But since Shane and I are kid-less, Shane's his own boss, and I don't leave for work until 9:30...we haven't gotten that "early to bed, early to rise" thing down quite yet. We're enjoying it while we still can!

So, I'm literally running in my sleep. My workout is done before I even wake up for the day! Pretty awesome actually. I'm having a really fun time running with this group of strong women, and I'm getting pumped for the big race!

Thanks Brian, for having a suburban-dad-life-crisis.

This summer was heavenly.
These are a few of my favorite moments:

Alex is a dad? Woa.

Yep. It happened. Just call him pops.
Doesn't he look like a natural?
Iver Lachlan Osborne was born on September 24th, weighing in at 8lbs 5oz, measuring 20 inches long.
Morgan was a champ and didn't take long at all getting him into the world. I mean look at her!! Who looks that good after labor??
We were pretty excited to meet mini-Al.
We fell in love with the little guy right away.
Morgan, being the photographer that she is,
has already taken some darling shots of the newest member of our fam.
This one of the cousins is my favorite. It kills me!!
You can be sure that it will be blown up and on my mom's wall tomorrow:
Doesn't get any cuter!!

Let's hear it for the BOYS!

3 cheers for these 3 guys!
Kyle and Bryant are Shane's business mentors (and best buds). They started a Real Property Management franchise in Huntington Beach, then helped Shane start his own in L.A, and for that we'll be forever thankful. They recently hit a milestone in their business and invited us to their celebration! It just so happens that Shane hit a big milestone too, which made the food taste even sweeter.
We went big, dining out at a majorly fancy steakhouse (soooooo delicious). We toasted to our business men and had ourselves a grand ol' time.
Us ladies are really proud of these guys for working so hard, making it happen, and bringing home the bacon.
