I'm not a runner. I'm a walker. But I'm doing The Color Run in August. I'm training using the Couch to 5K app and I'm kind of excited. Like really excited.
I've only ever participated in one other race, and I walked that with the kids (it was the Susan G. Komen race a couple of years ago). This will be my first run. And while I'm probably in the worst shape of my life, I'm excited that this fun race is going to be the one to get me in the best shape of my life (so far)!
I stumbled upon these funny little images while spending time I'll never get back on Pinterest. They're from a series of photos that Aled Lewis took, after being inspired by a toy unicorn. As he tells it,
"It all started in a toy store when I saw a figure of a unicorn rearing up as though he was showing off his magnificent horn. I arranged some of the other horse figures around him looking suitably displeased at his show-ff antics and it amused me enough to make it a project!"
Needless to say, I find them hilarious and ended up buying the bookonce it became available. Here are just a few gems from Toy Confidential that makes me LOL. (really, I LOL when I flip through it!)
If spring never shows up here in WNY, does that mean I don't need to spring clean?
Oh I kid.
Or do I?
But really, there's something about knowing your house is clean from the tippy top to the bottom. Or is that just me. It may be just me because no one I know is really down with the whole 'so clean you can eat off of the plantation shutters' mentality.
I get it, I'm a little intense when it comes to a clean house. Just ask those who live with me (poor souls). But I do think there's something to be said about cleaning your house, all of the nooks and crannies, and sitting down at night to a peaceful, organized space. But then again I have OCD when it comes to areas of neatness (don't even ASK me to get any work done if my desk is a mess), so it's probably just me again.
Someone back me up. Anyone. Please?
My spring cleaning list (culled from multiple Pinterest pins) is pretty extensive, and with spring taking it's sweet time getting here (many of my posts recently, as sporadic as they've been, are about this sad fact), I'm worried that I won't be able to cross off my list completely.
Dudes. This winter has been ridic (as Madeline would say). So I surrender. I give up. I'm getting the hell out of here (granted, not for 3 more weeks).
We decided we're heading out to the Outer Banks in NC for a week in April. I cannot wait. Booked the house, took off work, I'm out. of. here.
Emma on the beach during our trip to SC a couple of years ago. Just because I hate posting without a picture.
Thank God I work for an amazing company, because I'm already taking 2 weeks off in May to visit my brother and sister in law (and yes, you too Emma, but you shouldn't be reading this blog as you're only 6. Sorry. 6 and a half.). My boss was like 'GO'! So I said, 'OK'!
This trip was literally conceived and booked in one day. That's how much I need to get out of here.
So you can suck it winter. I'm breaking up with you.
