Growing Garden & BE A MAN Tri-Hard Training

So a few weeks ago I planted some starters and some seeds. I am already seeing growth! This is so exciting!
Because so much is growing I decided to do basil and cilantro as well. Just planted so we shall see!

Do you see the tomatoe growing???

Now down to business. I was in the car with my mom yesterday and we were talking about what we could do when all the family comes into town for christmas.  I have always said I want to do a triathalon but too expensive and the main thing I think is cool is the shirt.  So I said, "lets do a family triathalon. Make a course. Make shirts. Make it a Beaman competition!

So I have a rough draft of the shirt I want to design. Its not set in stone but I am liking it more and more :) The course is not set up completly so the amounts of each is an estimate. The bike ride may be altered a little.  The teams are as follows:

Randy and Reva
Blake and Garret
Rachele and Scott
Tyson and Taylor
Matt and Hollie (me)

For those of you who know the Beaman's we are a pretty competitive bunch so this will be fun. Rachele and Scott are marathon/triathalon fanatics, so we have our work cut out for us to keep up. The race will start with our swim at the ymca. Then we hope onto our bikes on our ride into Kingwood. We will drop off our bikes at Gille residence and begin our run! This is gonna be a blast!

Let the training begin!

Green Thumb

So this past weekend we completed our garden.  Matt built it last weekend but I had to order dirt and what not. I planted broccoli, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, bell peppers. We shall see how it goes with the growing of these yummy treats :)

The doctor has me on a low glycemic diet to try to treat my PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome).  I must admit this new way of eating is really difficult but the end result is whats worth it.  I am hoping the fertility specialist can figure out what is going on with my body, so matt and I can be blessed with a family.  Until then I have to keep up the hope and take care of my husband, doggies, home and garden.  

I have just been subbing lately, a few times a week.  I have a long term sub job next month at creekwood middle school.  It is right at the start of basketball season so I get to coach 7th grade basketball (with one of my teammates back in the day) and teach PE to 6th graders.  Couldn't be more ideal.

Matt has been working at Malone and Bailey still.  He is about finished with an online class and then off to studying for the CPA.  He isn't a fan of his job but he does it anyways.  I appreciate his willingness to provide for our family. He is a great husband and will one day be an awesome dad.

I thought this was funny one of max. We were workin our butts off and he was just reeellllaaxxxin..typical

I have officially decided to cut out all soda out of my diet. So long Diet Dr. Pepper, soo long Diet Mt. Dew, I will miss you Diet Sunkist   :( 

Withdrawals may happen, but I am hoping this will help with a health issue. Oh It better!

Babysitter and Birthday

 So like I said in the last blog post I went to San Fran to help babysit for my oldest brother jake and his wife erin.  My mom decided to come help as well because my dad feared it would result in me deciding not to have kids.  No worries out there, I still WANT to have kids.  Children are a wonderful blessing and I look forward to motherhood one day. Dont know how good of a mom I will be but I will do my best.  I have a good example of motherhood that lives right around the corner :)
On swings...check out my face haha

Micah loves the swings
Doggie cupcake
Wyatt enjoyed them

Down at the Beach..walked to it because so close by

Also, on the 8th I turned 24! Ahhhh crazy. Feel old. My mom suprised me with shih tzu cupcakes. Isnt she so talented?  I am so lucky to live close by to my mom and dad. Matt and my parents made me feel special :)

Fall is in the Air

Can I just say I LOVE this time of the year!

One being because we celebrated our ONE year anniversary.  TWO its birthday time. THREE have 3 of the best holidays wam bam thank you mam!

Everyone complains about how hot it is here in Houston, but when it turns to this time of the year till May of next, Texas is perfect. Thats why God Blessed Texas with his own hands :) 

Lately we have been going on many bike rides and walks whenever we can. For our anniversary Matt and I both came up with the same genious gift idea of new softball gloves! We like to play catch outside so we both thought of it and suprised eachother with new gloves.  Great minds think alike!

Dogs are doing great.  Charlie and Tex have now grown up to be fully grown shih tzus and are actually bigger than Max now.  Max is the little daddy now.

This past month we have been very busy traveling.  We went to Florida to visit Matts family and then I went to San Fran to babysit for my oldest brother Jake with my mom his two boys Wyatt (age 3) and Micah (age 1).  Mom and I had fun with the lil guys.  But let me tell ya. There were some good times......and some bad times... but all in all we had a blast and it gave me a taste of what motherhood is like.  I cant wait till I have my own little Gille's running around!

We also had matt's parents come stay with us over conference weekend.  We enjoyed spending quality time with them and the doggies got lots of walks so they loved the extra attention.

Anyways, that is about all that is going on in the Gille gang. Till next time
