My friends inspire me so much that they became an integral part of my proposal to Foodbuzz for their April 24 x 24 Feature, in which 24 bloggers create a special meal during the same 24 hours.
But first, a little more about the girls...
Tracy: puts in countless hours volunteering at her children's school (and often steps in to help me look out for Miss P in the afternoon). Exercise of choice: swimming with her kids.
Alaina: Supermom extraordinaire who teaches, helps run an after school program, takes fabulous care of her three active boys, and does not know how to complain. Exercise of choice: running with her dog.
Me (in green). Exercise of choice: hiking with fabulous girlfriends.
Lorrie: master seamstress and baker, who stays on top of her two boys, volunteers galore, and is so kind, offering to help me in my classroom over the summer and bringing me Starbucks during teacher appreciation (even though her kids go to other schools!) Exercise of choice: Hula dancing.
Beth: Crazy hard worker, juggling her two girls, and a busy job teaching disadvantaged students. Exercise of choice: Zumba
In our twenties, us girls might celebrate with a night on the town.
Two hours and two water bottles a piece later, we were ready for some refreshments. With fitness over, the gang headed back to my house for the fiesta, featuring smoothies and banana bread.
