Hello sports fans! Thanks for tuning in. Let’s recap what I’ve been up to:
My gal pal Jess came up to visit me and we ran the Glo Run 5k together!
It’s like the Color Run except at night complete with glow sticks, neon yellow and pink shirts, and a bumping party complete with cool dj at the end:
This past weekend, I ran another 5k with my peeps and warmed up with a little pre-race zumba:
At my second 5k, I was a little disappointed missing last year’s time by 2 minutes but I can’t be upset at averaging 8:52min miles according to MapMyRun.
After this Saturday’s 5k, my friends and I met for a Food Network dinner club night, where we conquered Pat and Gina Neely recipes and made their lobster mac and cheese, strawberry pie, fried green beans, tomato soup, raspberry limeade, and bbq pork paninis. Omg, SO GOOD! All the recipes are highly recommended!
So yeah, food and running. that’s what I’ve been up to!
It’s been a LONG time since I wrote up a TGIF post but talking to my moh this morning reminded me of what may be, the world’s greatest line of greeting cards as written by comedians.
My girl Ags and I stumbled upon these gems while wandering through World Market one day. We laughed till we cried as we flipped through all the cards because they’re so ridiculously hilarious. Some favs included:
Front: Now that you’re having a baby, you can’t go to the spa whenever you want or travel halfway across the world at a moment’s notice.
Uh-mazing, right? Be sure to check the rest of the “Frank and Funny” cards at Commendium Inc.
Have a great weekend peeps!
Borrowing a page from one of my fav bloggers Christina (hi!!), I’ve decided to write up a What I’m Loving post for ya.
For my nails, I’m currently loving Essie Lilacism. So perfect for Easter and spring right?
Other new drugstore favs include the Maybelline Baby Lips in peppermint (which I’m pretty sure Christina may have mentioned and I tend to buy whatever she recommends because she’s on point. Take for instance, pretzel m&ms. She posted about them, I subsequently ran to CVS to find them and…it was love at first bite! I’m telling ya, that lady knows what’s up.
As far as my coffee mug’s concerned, I’ve loved filling it with Gevalia coffee. You know, the commercial with the Johan character causing a stir at a book club? Well, my friend at work told me it was the best coffee she’s ever had and I was like…”yeah, okay” but I figured I’d give it a shot. And now it’s my go-to brand. Also, I like that the bag sports such fun mugs. ::shrugs:: Judge me if you must.
And finally, I’ve recently rekindled my love affair with running on a regular basis. After a long, long hiatus, I realized we need each other. Or rather, I need it. I’m on my third week of running 3 times a week using the Jeff Galloway method per another fav blogger‘s suggestion (Hi Kelly!). When I don’t work out consistently, I constantly feel on edge and on the verge of a nervous breakdown (true story). But now, I’m feeling goooood.
