Day 1:
I am Jenny Diane and from Austin, TX. I have Chocolate Lab named Belle (Jingle Belle...she was born on Christmas) a grumpy male orange cat named Stetson and a Grey Tabby cat named Lucchesse. I have been married since March of 2007 to my BEST friend in the whole world and we are expecting the delivery of our first baby, a girl, in January. Her name will be Kennedy Kate but I have already started calling her KK.
15 Interesting Facts

  2. I love candy and my husband constantly tells me it is bad for me
  3. I'm tall. 5 foot 11
  4. I find myself becoming less outgoing as I grow up and this makes me sad.
  5. I absolutely LOVE what I get to do every day and am so so blessed to be a part of FHTM
  6. My husband and I work wonderfully together and I just can't get enough of him
  7. I am nesting and that means that if I haven't used it recently I am selling it in a garage sale on Oct 30th

  15. I'm not crafty and proud of it. I do LOVE those of you who are. It kind of amazes me :)
DAY 2: Meaning behind your blog name
I started this blog to track my runs and training for races so I chose a quote from a old Nike tshirt I had in high school. On the front it said, "gotta run" and on the back it said "catch me later" I wish I still had that shirt.

Day 3: Your First Love
I "dated" a boy named Ryan from 7th-11th but after becoming a Christian we didn't have much in common any more. I am thankful for that time with him though :) Those were such sweet days. What is more fun is seeing who God had for me as a spouse. My husband Kyle is more than I could have ever prayed for and leads our family and loves me so well. "Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers" thanks Garth. He is my first true love.

Day 4: Your Parents
My parents have made me who I am today and I just love them. They were married for 26 years and a wonderful example of marriage to me as I grew up but chose to go their separate ways when I was in college (yes this was extremely hard for me and another post for another day) but this made me such a fighter and I'm real thankful for brokenness. That time in my life forced me to cling to the Lord and made me see my parents as human for the first time. It also helped strong relationships form between my parents and I. I have my dads personality completely! He is funny and sensitive and so am I. Everyone tells me I look like my mom but I sure didn't get her craftiness :) She is sweet and has taught school almost 30 years. I have my compassion and willingness to teach from her.
