A bloggers worst nightmare.

As we were driving to dinner I looked at my camera and realized that I forgot to put the memory card back in.   Let’s just say this made me a little mad and Billy was able to capture my anger on his iphone.  Please excuse the blurry photos for this post.  Billy refused to turn around and spend $8 in gas to go back home and get the memory card.  Okay, that is a lie, I didn’t ask him but I did contemplate being late to dinner just so that I could take a drool worthy photo of salad heaven.

Photo

My cutest friend, Holly, hooked me up with Costa Vida gift cards because she wanted me to see how much better it is compared to Cafe Rio.  I even got a photo with the awesome tortilla lady……don’t worry about it, she is just in charge of making hundreds of people happy everyday with her tortilla skills.

Holly was right.  The mango salsa that is under the mounts of pico, chips and guac was heavenly, the tortilla was fluffier and the dressing was fruity bliss.  THANK YOU HOLLY .

The boys side of the table talked about neurons, Newton’s Laws and stuff.

Photo 5

The girl’s side of the table talked about how big of an ice cream sundae we wanted after dinner.  My mom’s hands are either showing the size of ice cream happiness that was necessary for after dinner or how much she loves me.

This photo is officially in my top ten favorites.  The nieces and nephew were so excited to see Billy after dinner.  They love treating him like a jungle gym.  He clearly loves it too.

There was some cookies and cream ice cream to round off the night while watching Modern Family but the iphone photo did not make the cut.  Ice cream deserves the best of the best…. no blurry photo could ever do its deliciousness justice.

Who is your favorite character on Modern Family?

-Phil is the funniest human being ever.

What is something that you forget to bring with you that really ticks you off?

-Heaven forbid I not lug around my DSLR everywhere I go to take a picture every 30 seconds and I just about die without my phone so that I can obsessively check my emails.  I have problems.

Any fun races you or friends are doing this weekend?

-The AMAZING ASH, JEN and RACHELLE are running Ogden as we speak and I just love them to death!!!

I've forgotten deodorant when going to the gym before… So I'm pretty sure the people around me weren't too thrilled either. LOL

And woohoo for being the creeper who comments first on the most popular blog ever. :D

Modern Family is my FAVORITE show!!! Phil is funny, but MANNY is my favorite…he is just so darn cute and his expressions crack me up! He is an adult in a little kid's body! haha

:)

hope you have a great weekend!

I think the little boy (who I am having a mental blank over names) is really funny. And Manni is funny. But yeah, Phil is such a great character too.
No races for me this weekend, but only 1 week to go until my first marathon eeekk!

When I shower and change at the gym I always forget to bring something like a hairbrush, or shoes so I am all dressed up with running shoes on. Or a bra so I leave all dressed up with a sports bra on.

I need to watch Modern Family! I wanted to run a half marathon this morning, but I decided to be a nice girlfriend and help set up my boyfriend's grad party (he promised me lots of good food too like spinach-artichoke dip!).

I don't watch Modern Family; I'm always working Wednesday nights. :-(

I hate it when I leave my memory card at home! I've done that on several occasions.

I'm not running in a race this weekend but I am volunteering at a 5 miler that Harpoon Brewery is putting on.

Haha that's such a funny picture of the girls side, and it's hilarious hearing the difference in conversation between the two sides!

My favorite character on MF is probably either Phil or Gloria!

If you like Modern Family, you should try watching The Middle! It's also completely hilarious.

I'm racing today in the Oxy High Performance Meet (the 1500) with all of these INCREDIBLE athletes– think Nike, Brooks, and OTC sponsored. I'm a little nervous but also incredibly excited. I'll just try not to get too starstruck on the line and start asking for autographs…

That stinks I'm sorry that u forgot the card!!! Talk about blonde when me and my hubby went to Italy I forgot the lens ok that made me mad! But I laughed really hard afterwards!!! I love how close you are to your family!!!

I've forgotten my actual camera on occasion and I'm not high tech w/cell phones so the quality on my cell is cruddy to say the least and have had to make due with it :(

and OMG that salad looks sooooooooooooooo good!

Phil is HILARIOUS on modern family. Everytime we watch, my husband will go, "I'd never do anything like that, right?" when in reality, he is EXACTLY like him. I guarantee if we ever have a son, it will be a Luke Phil relationship lol.

No fun races for me this weekend, though I'm really wishing I'd signed up to do Ragnar New England that was yesterday and today. Have you ever done Ragnar?

Nice pics. Sometimes those blurry cell phone cameos are the best.

I've never seen Modern Family so have no idea what it is. If it's not hockey, baseball or Deadliest Catch I don't think my TV has it ;-)

Good luck to this weekend's racers! Have a nice Saturday everyone.

Eh the pics still work. Love that last picture!

I have been wanting a new camera, much like the one you forgot your memory card for! For now, I'm using a plain ol' digital camera. Boo!

And PS – wish we had a Cafe Rio in Portland! The salads you eat from there always look delicious. Jealousy at it's finest!

I LOVE Phil on Modern Family!
Last week when he went all psycho and turned into Claire and realized that teenage girls are manipulative and "They're monsters, Claire! Deceitful, manipulative monsters and they need to be broken." :D It's great!

I spazz if I forget my chapstick. Seriously, I'm about to take a back-up tube to put in my manager's desk in case I forget to bring it with me to work.

I want an iPhone… my sister just got one and now I'm jealous! Verizon came out with it just about a month after I got my new phone. =(

I HATE when I forget my cell phone. I feel like I've lost an appendage when I leave it at home. What the eff did we do before this technology existed?

No races for me. Patellar tendonitis is back! DANG-IT (I modified the swear word for your blog ;-)

i hate when i forget water. it's just too important not to have.

Reply

I seem to be always forgetting my camera too! Then I make the husband take pictures with his iphone and he is not amused. I also hate forgetting my Garmin..i know, i know but i hate forgetting it!

Reply

i have forgetting my water bottle. I refuse to buy plastic water bottles for so many reasons, I'd rather go thirsty. But I drink so much water that forgetting is a serious issue haha! I'm doing a 5k tomorrow on my old cross country trail in my favorite park! Can't wait to see my old coach and running friends.

I haven't seen Modern Family yet, but I need to! I keep hearing good things about it. My husband and I have been wanting to get in to another show ever since we finished Lost. Have any other recommendations? Something suspenseful would be the best because that's what we loved about Lost.

No races for me today, just a nasty 10 mile run in 85% humid, buggy weather. It's days like this that I miss Utah! I did Ogden last year. I forgot it's marathon season there! Marathon season hear is not until November.

I hate when I forget my memory card! One time I did it when I was on a spring break trip to go to the Arnold, the sports exhibition I had been counting down the days to go to. We had already driven 30 minutes from our hotel, paid for parking, and walked the 20 minutes to the exhibit hall when I realized I had left it. I almost cried when I met some of my favorite athletes and couldn't get pictures with them. Now I triple check to make sure I have my memory card every time I leave the house. Lesson learned!

good luck to those lovely ladies! and I rarley bring my camera. I am a bad blogger. Maybe someday I'll get the hang of it. Phil is the best, I agree. Too fun!

i LOVE MODERN FAMILY! HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! oh when i forget my keys…. or my phone.. its not a happy day for me!

Reply

i cannot count the times i have done that. you would think i'd keep a spare or two in my purse.

The picture of you that Billy snapped with his phone is priceless! For me, I'm always absolutely PARANOID that I will somehow be left without my running shoes if I pack them in a checked bag for a flight. It happened once and I didn't have them (or most of my clothes!) for a few days and ever since then I will be the dork sporting the sneaks for any flight or make sure they are in my carry-on. I guess that's not really forgetting…but it's what first popped to mind. :)
