Through Thick and Thin Challenge

Now that my Big Bridesmaid Challenge is over, I am ready to begin something new! When I look to begin a new challenge, one of the first things that I contemplate is the potential goal date. I am usually more motivated when the goal date is related to an upcoming event, so I took a look at my calendar and began to think. I didn't have to think long about the next big event coming up in my life. My husband and I are going to be celebrating 3 years of marriage on September 19, 2012. That's next month!

So, in light of our 3 year wedding anniversary, both my husband I will be participating in my new challenge; Through Thick and Thin. This challenge is going to be even more fun and exciting because my husband is going to be working right along side me in this!
