10 Random Things.

Staying up last night until 2 was my worst idea ever.  I am tired today but I hate complaining about that because I guarantee 99% of you reading this are also tired so let’s just leave it at that and just know that the post you are about to read makes no sense whatsoever.  

10 Random Things 

1.  It is a proven fact that the elliptical makes me 10 times sweatier than running.  Maybe it is because I am using my arms and we all know that my arms are only good for holding a baby and getting food from my plate to my mouth, not working out.  I did 48 minutes on the elliptical this morning and thought I was going to drown and you are welcome for cutting out my greased back hair from the picture.

2.  The Brooke photo of the day because I haven’t done a close-up of her face shot on the blog for at least 3 posts.

IMG 4824

3.  A few of you have said that Brooke looks like Curly in some of her photos.  This is the only baby picture I have of Curly (before she was dubbed the name Curly) and I do think they look kind of alike but then again most babies kind of do but it is fun to compare.

4.  I wanted to show you a pillow I found yesterday at Anthropologie that I almost sold my computer to spend the $190 on because I loved it so much.   Brooke understood my desire for the pillow because this is OUR song.  $190 for a pillow?!?!?! Those feathers in there better be made of gold and Milky Ways.

5.  A friend sent me this awesome picture and I NEED this.  Just imagine Brooke and I zooming around the streets of San Jose.  Mom, do you need my address again so that you can send one of these to me?

 6.  I have officially eaten every last bit of food in our house which is actually a really awesome thing because that means we are forced to go to Costco tonight.

7.  Christina sent me a link to THIS recipe!  The ingredients are UNREAL: white chocolate, oreos, candy corn, peanuts, reese’s pieces and sprinkles… all of my favorite foods in one bowl!

9.  I won’t admit to you how long I have spent searching for Brooke’s perfect Halloween costume today.

10.  It is Brooke’s TWO MONTH birthday today and we will celebrate with a picture of the first time I ever changed her diaper.

I’m always tired. I stayed up later than I should have last night too! It sucks.

That candy corn, chocolate, sprinkles recipe looks AMAZING. I NEED some NOW!!!!!!

I do believe that Brooke is quite possibly the most adorable baby I have ever seen in my life. I literally say “aaaawwwww” every time I see a picture of her. And those candy corn-orea-chocolate concoctions should be illegal.

Reply

Today was my rest day. I’ll be sweating it out tomorrow morning w/ a speed work session.

I am usually tired at about 9pm.

I recently tried candy corn after years of avoiding it. I’ve been missing out.

I was going to dress Anna up as a Banana, but now I am not so sure. It’s her first halloween so her costume needs to be extra special.

Going to get my sweat on with some hot yoga! Congrats on a sweaty ellipitcal workout! :)
I usually get tired between 2-4 and then energize before tiring out around 8.
I have yet to figure out a halloween costume.
$190 for a pillow?! Girl, you can make one of them yourself! Or maybe find on etsy for cheap, lol.
Random thing 1: I trip over my own feet (truth. one leg turns in a little more. running is supposed to help straighten them out)
Random thing 2: my lips are slightly tingly right now. i think i ate some that caused a small allergic reaction.

I love how Brooke is in your gym photo! So cute.

There are a lot of adorable “You Are My Sunshine” handmade items on Etsy. I was browsing for a friend a couple months ago and fell in love with a lot of the wall prints. (There’s even a homemade burlap pillow that looks similar to the one from Anthropolgie!)

http://www.etsy.com/search/handmade?q=you%20are%20my%20sunshine&view_type=gallery&ship_to=US&ref=auto2&explicit_scope=1

Much more affordable than the pillow that probably, most likely, isn’t stuffed with gold and Milky Ways. :)

You are officially my favorite person ever. Thank you so much for sending me the link and I am about to buy everything on there:)

Got a good little 4 mile run in on my lunch hour!!

And my princess is going to be a Princess and my little Runner boy is going to be TurtleMan, have you ever heard of him. check him out on the Animal Planet channel, called Call of the Wildman!!! Note not all Kentuckians are like this!!!

I’m exhausted. I can’t find a happy spot with my job. Driving makes me tired and then if I don’t fly I feel tired but this last stretch I had a 9 hour flight with a critically obese patient and I feel like it kicked my butt. I slept all day yesterday, last night, drove home and now I’m trying to fight a nap. Aggravating! I’m working out tonight in TRX which means I’ll be sore for a week.
Random – I can hardly do the elliptical for even 30 minutes. I get too bored.
On the other hand, I have a new pair of running shoes coming in the mail today so I’m going to sit by the window and wait for the FedEx guy! Come on already!!

OOH! Maybe I will be the first one to comment on your blog post :D hehe. I just woke up at 1pm as I am doing a night shift tonight, I am doing chores chores chores, and may push some pilates in there later on :), have a great day!!

Today was a rest day since I ran my first marathon on Sunday. And my 3 year old daughter is going to be a ballerina witch for Halloween – she likes options!

Um that picture of Brooke is too die for! Her eyes are so pretty! My workout was an easy 4 mile run and body pump! I’m exhausted today and I’m blaming the gloomy new england weather right now.

This year my roommate and I are being dinosaurs! Weird yes, but I have always wanted to be one hahah and we are making our own costumes and they are coming out pretty cool! Last year we were trolls (the ones with spikey hair and colored bellies) it was so funny!

Reply

I did 30 min on the elliptical and upper body strength – my first post marathon workout! And that bowl of candy looks amazing…

What was your workout today? Was it a sweaty one?

It will be boot camp on the Stanford campus. It is always sweaty.

Are you tired today? What time of day are you the most tired?

I am usually tired. I have a 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 year old and someone always wakes up for something or I’m up late editing photos or whatever. They also get up between 6 and 6:30. We are also moving across town in 10 days, our preschool teacher passed away on Friday and she owned and ran the school out of her house so no more preschool which was my 3 hours 3 days a week of time to myself.

Tell me a random thing or two!
– I always read these posts to procrastinate.
– I always have to stop and get something for somebody or do something else and have to come back a few times before I finish my replies. Sometimes I find them half finished in a browser an hour later. :)

Do you have your halloween costume figured out yet? If you have kids, what are you dressing them up as?

I don’t dress up. But the kids are Dora and Diego and pretty blonde, it’s kind of funny.

That picture of Brooke is my absolute fave!! :-)

First things first, she is so adorable! I say it everytime you post a photo but that close up picture is so sweet!
What was your workout today? Was it a sweaty one?
No work out today per se, I am in the middle of unpacking boxes from moving so that it my workout.
Are you tired today? What time of day are you the most tired?
So tired! I haven’t had a moment to sit down in forever and just relax because of moving.

I am eating a fruit punch dum-dum right now because my Mom bought a HUGE bag of them:) I am also left-handed! I forgot to post that on yesterdays blog but oh well!

I feel like I’m usually at my tiredest (is that a word?) around 2-2:30… and also around 8:30pm, which is my normal nap time on the couch while my boyfriend watches boring shows like Criminal Minds and Sports Center.

Random tidbits about my day:
1. I just ate a white chocolate covered strawberry… heaven.
2. My dog has his 1 year shots at the vet tonight, I’m not sure who is more nervous… me or him (he cries SO loud when he gets a shot and I always feel terrible).
3. I’m excited for the show Nashville to premiere on ABC tonight.

That’s all.. for now :)

Reply

Bummer about the dog shots today… That has got to be hard!

I need some white chocolate covered strawberries now!

Reply

I am stalling my sweaty workout right now. But I am planning on a sweat fest when I finally get off the couch. I get tired around 3p-4p so I usually have a little snack to perk me up since my boss isn’t a fan of naptime. I am still narrowing down our Halloween costumes options, I’m very indecisive. Too bad Halloween isn’t a week long celebration so that I could wear all of them!
Random thing: I read your blog so much that sometimes I forget we arent actually friends :) oy, I sound like a stalker!

Reply

Your boss doesn’t allow nap time? Girl, we ARE actually real friends!

Happy 2 month bday to baby Brooke!

I went to BodyPump this morning and am running tonight.

My kids are going to be a whoopie cushion and a zombie skateboarder.

Reply

Just getting snacked up and geared up to head out to my running team training. I biked to work today (40min, ride, 8 hour shift, but hopped the train home), and I’ll be riding back and forth to practice too (about an hour round trip, and practice is usually 7-10 miles is of running) — so while I might be fatigued now, I’m thinking I’ll be at my most tired around 9pm tonight!!
Random thing: I bought a large bag of carrots to encourage myself to eat more of them (I’ll usually buy a small bunch and will leave them until they’re nearly bad) because I know I won’t want to just throw them out, total waste. My dog has eaten more of them than I have to this point … haha.
Random thing: My laundry is STILL in the dryer … And I have another load that’s ready to go in tomorrow. Oops!! :)

Reply

I’m tired today cause I had a nightmare in which I was James Bond. It was weird and terrifying, all at the same time.

For Halloween I’m dressing up as Hermione from Harry Potter! I’ve been her for 6 or 7 years in a row now.

Reply

I love the look on Brooke’s face when you are taking a pic at the gym. Classic.

I am impressed you worked out while so tired. Pretty sure when I miss a work out 90% of the time it is because I am tired.

Today I did a PiYo class at the gym. It is a class that is yoga and pilated fused together. While it doesn’t get me sweating a ton, I love it! I just started doing it probably 6 weeks ago and it is always nice to switch up the routine, you know?

I have made a treat similar to that before. And it is yummy! You should most definitely make it!

I have sang ‘You are my sunshine’ to both my kids since they were babies. It is a good one. But not $190 on a pillow good ;)

Random part of my day. My kids asked me to make a My Little Pony with those iron on beads I bought at IKEA last week and I spent 2 hours this morning helping them make a few. I may have enjoyed it just as much as they do. Proof again that I am about the same as a 6 year old child.

Love the pink fluffy around Brooke! Such a cutie :)

I am tired today–but it’s from teaching too much. Hah. I ran 5 miles on the TM & then I am teaching BP tonight –for my workouts.

I have NO idea what we shall be for H-day. No idea….

Janae,

I am not sure if I have ever been able to fully congratulate you and Billster on the arrival of beautiful Brooke. I have been following since day one and I guess out of pure lazy-ness I have never commented (er..maybe I did). I can’t remember.

All the best..with everything…you are awesome. Maybe I might have to send you all some treats from New Zealand again :)

I guess there will be no visits to New Zealand for at least a few years?!??

That pic of Brooke made my little ho hum afternoon at the office! Thanks :-)

Reply

I did a 5 mile run today. Wasn’t too sweaty because I took it easy and it was pretty chilly out.

Yes I’m tired. I’m always tired in the afternoon.

Random: I got this really cool new hair dryer today! It’s called a Conair Spin Air Brush! You’re supposed to be able to do a blow out like they do at the salon without having to hold the dryer and the brush at the same time. I can’t wait to try it.

I don’t know what my Halloween costume will be. I think this may be the first time in 20 years I don’t dress up :( We don’t have any fun Halloween plans because a lot of our friends are having a hard time right now.

Reply

Hi Janae!

My workout is coming up after work. Bodypump..I’m SURE I’ll sweat :-)

I am really tired today. Our cat kept trying to sleep on my face last night. Silly girl. I usually hit a wall around 2pm and need some green tea to perk back up.

Random thing..I’ve been married for 2 months tomorrow (Fun that Brooke is two months old today!).

My husband and I are trying to decide. Current ideas: Mad Hatter and Alice, Han Solo and Princess Leia or a bar of soap and a loofa haha

Have a great day and get some REST tonight!

That pillow is cute but not for $190! That’s craziness!

seriously, i’m in college and it has become such a pet peeve when i hear someone ask someone else how they are and the person responds with “i’m so tired” everyone’s tired!!!!

That is the cutest picture of Brooke but really they’re all cute. I love how in the pic of your sweating after the elliptical, she’s leering behind you with her big eyes…she’s saying “I can’t wait to get on that machine like mama”.

Today’s sweatfest aka workout 55 min stepmill intervals and 8 min elliptical…ran out of time.

Still trying to figure out a costume for Halloween but hoping my preggo belly is more prominent so I can wear a orange t-shirt and paint a jack-o-lantern face on it and be a pumpkin. If not maybe Wonder Woman….got some time to work on it.

Reply

Awwwr happy 2 month birthday to Brooke! I can’t wait to see what kind of Halloween costume you pick out for her! I don’t have mine figured out yet, but I hope something comes to me soon or I’m going to end up cutting two holes in a white bedsheet, throwing it over my head, and calling myself a ghost ;) And yessss I’m tired today. I blame the weather. We’ve been lacking sun lately and that always tires me out.

OoOOoh I’m planning on doing a post on random things, too, hehe.
I think Brooke totally DOES look like Curly!!! How adorable :D

Reply

I don’t even have kids, but there is something to that night, alone time that makes me stay up later than I should sometimes.
workout was 4 miles, not too sweaty.

WHYYY are Anthropologie’s things all so expensive?! I would never ever spend that much on a pillow. It IS an awesome pillow, but just, no. Not okay. And, as always, Brooke is absolutely adorable. :)

Reply

My girls were both a flower for their first Halloween. So cute!

Not sure what they are going to be this year. 11-year old is thinking a rapper? 14-year old maybe Minnie Mouse.

I LOVE that pillow. My grandmom used to sing me that song when I was a baby, so it’ll always have a special place in my heart. :)

Also: that close-up picture of Brooke is PRECIOUS!

Reply

I love that stroller picture! I totally do that with the shopping carts when I go to stores. And then sometimes (because I’m totally weird) I make the cart go super fast and then make my legs look like they’re running (though they’re not touching the ground).

Yeah, I’m awkward.

Random thing: I watched Swiss Family Robinson with my kids last night for the first time since I was a kid. I still love it. My boys really want to move to a tree house now. Honestly, if it looked like they one they had I totally would!

Aww Curly was such a cute baby! But she’s even CUTER now that she has those gorgeous curly locks!! ;)

I’m always exhausted during the day, probably because I don’t get enough sleep. Vicious cycle. No workout for a while, sprained my ankle after hitting it on the table :(

I just ran 12 miles, and I could easily go to bed for the night. The run made me more tired than I have all day, obviously. Usually though I’m the most tired early afternoon. Naps occur quite often. They’re just feel soooo goooood not to.

Oh my goodness, never noticed how much Brooke looks like Curly until you had the pictures side by side! She really DOES look a lot like her!! Such little cuties :)
I wanted to tell you that I’m rooting for the Giants tonight….I’m really hoping they win this one…watching it right now. Please ask Billy if he will root for the Orioles too…I mean they ARE the same colors as the Giants :D

Reply

What? In the last picture you don’t even look like you had a baby! How is that possible? Isn’t there supposed to be some swelling? Aren’t you supposed to still kind of look pregnant once it’s over? Some please explain this to me. You know I’ve been waiting for a post about losing the baby weight but honestly now I can see why you haven’t made one. As if it wasn’t embarrassing enough that you weighed less than me when you were pregnant! I need to start running but I am too chicken to.

HAPPY 2 MONTH B-DAY BROOKE!

Today was an unplanned rest day for me. Got crazy busy and I am seriously tired now!

The candy corn filled bowl of whateverthatis looks amazing…I had candy corns for an afternoon snack today.. and couldn’t stop at one serving :( Good thing I ran 10 miles this morning.. and have another 10 miles scheduled for tomorrow..

That baby scooter is the greatest thing I have seen……maybe ever!!!!
I am no where near to having a baby but now I kinda want one just so I can get a scooter/stroller (JK!)

I’d love to read a post on what your elliptical workouts look like!

Reply

I did intervals today, 4.53 miles (I’m a new runner) working my way up to 10K. Your blog is awesome and I love that you post two times per day! I made up a song to the Sunshine tune for my son when he was a baby (and one for my daughter to the tune of zipity doodah)…he remembers it and I still sing it to him (only when no one is around and he’s sick). Your blog makes me smile and helps me cope, I’m in NC and my parents are moving to CO in 10 days. I am graduating from college and getting married all with in the next 40 days. You make me smile and want to keep on runnin’!

Random: I’m finally reading the Stephanie Plum novels and they are hilarious! Love them!

I am in awe that you can do 48 minutes on the elliptical! I can only make it about 10-15 minutes because my feet always fall asleep…I know I am a weirdo! lol

That is bananas to spend that much on a pillow (we barely spent that much on our bed. kidding.) My workout ended in tears, not sweat. Only .1 miles and my hip told me that it is 99% sure I will NOT be running my first half marathon on Saturday.

Reply

Happy 2 month birthday Brooke! Oh my gosh that picture of her is adorable. I love that our babies are so close in age. Maybe if we end up in California for Randy’s residency in 4 years they can be friends :).

I totally agree about the elliptical, it makes me sweat to death! I don’t sweat running as much, its more that my face goes bright red. Really attractive haha.

Reply

I always thought it was “my only sunshine” not “my lovely sunshine.” I think I just lost my place in the world with that one. Doesn’t Anthro sometimes seem like a rich person’s thrift store?

Reply

it’s def “my only sunshine” it has to be! lol maybe that’s why the pillow is so cheap ; ) because it’s off.. the correct one retails for $875.. or you can make your own for like $8 bucks..

I think baby girl looks just like her daddy.. at first I wasn’t sure.. so she def does have your features as well.. but man, ever new pic I see and it’s just like bam Billy! lol am um I will never stop nagging you about the frozen sour patch kids.. yay or nay???

You are right she totally does! NAY!!!!!! You were so right, they are the first candy in the history of my life that didn’t taste good frozen. I should have listened to you:)

This is my first comment ever. I love your blog. You always make running sound so fun and you’re very optimistic, but I have always wondered what is Curly’s real name?

HEY BAILEY!!!! Thank you so so much for your comment, you made my day! My sis asked me not to put her kids names online but Curly does have a very cute in real life name:) Hope you are having an amazing night!

Very tired today!! =( Most of the time I am exhausted around 3pm. Now that I can have caffeine again, a cup of coffee usually does wonders =)
We are all dressing up this year…Ryan – Yoda, AJ – Obi Wan Kanobi, Paul – Anakin and me – Padme =)

Reply

I think I’m getting a sugar high just looking at that photo of your dessert.

Work out today was a 6 miler. First 3 were great, but second half totally blew. Surprisingly my splits were much faster than usual. I’ll take it!

I was super tired this morning. I usually run in the morning, but stayed in bed reading and eating banana peanut butter oatmeal instead.

Something random: My Women’s Health for this month has a photo of the Fage greek yogurt with the little cup of honey that you pour into the yogurt and I’ve been craving it like crazy. It’s a totally healthy snack I just keep forgetting to pick some up and every night before bed I see the magazine sitting there with the photo on the back.

I think we’re going to do the Price is Right costumes for Halloween with one of us $1 higher than the other. We typically do couple costumes.

Primary Yoga Ashtanga class. Sweaty sweaty yoga! I’ve been tired all week starting a new job and working odd hours at the old ones, I am stretched way too thin! My whole day is RANDOM… I randomly killed my battery today with my Garmin now my car is all messed up took me an hour to get my radio off demo mode! Blonde=me can’t wait to run tomorrow though!

Reply

Let’s see…
My workout will be on the elliptical, as soon as I can get my youngest bathed and tucked into bed. Strangely, I don’t really sweat that much. Mainly my face sweats, which is always super attractive on hot days when I have to be in public.
I am sooooo tired in the morning when my alarm goes off! It doesn’t matter what time I went to bed the night before, I am absolutely dragging myself out of bed every morning. The world would be so much better if nothing got started before 9 am.
We’re dressing up as some of the Avengers this year. I’ve been recruited to be Black Widow, but there’s no way I’m going to look as good as Scarlett Johansson so I’m just letting that dream go.
Also, you look absolutely amazing in that hospital picture. I mean, you look like someone who came to visit the baby or something. I looked like death warmed over…the pictures of me in the hospital after giving birth don’t get shown to friends and family, much less posted online. I’d probably hate you if you didn’t seem so darn nice. ;)

Reply

Just to clarify, I’m not picking on you for being in shape…you look so happy and glowy and pretty for someone who just had a baby, whereas I was pale as a sheet and looked like I’d been hit by a truck. :P More power to you for doing it so gracefully!

Reply

The elipitical kicks my butt too! Its the quad work. I pretend it counts as weight training. I have sang Sunshine to my 9yr old baby girl every night. She suprised me with teaching her best friend the song. They sang it to me during a sleepover snuggle. Water works!!!

Reply

Go you for smashing the elliptical despite being tired!

I had a short workout – my last run before my first marathon :-). SO jealous of your halloween! Random fact for you – we really don’t celebrate it in Australia, even though we LOVE the idea (or at least, the kids do).

Reply

Anthropolgie is awesome, but I only use it to steal their ideas. FYI- Last week I found those cute burlap pillows with the same writing on them at Stein Mart AND Tuesday Morning. Both stores, the pillows were around $30!!

Reply

First of all: your daughter is the cutest!!! And I could never use that scooter – it’d be an accident in the making for me, since I’m super clumsy.

About the pillow, there are instructions here for DIY lettering: http://witandwhistle.com/2012/01/16/diy-stencil-pillow/ Seems easy enough, just don’t ask me how you turn it into an actual pillow.

Reply

Who on earth would spend that kind of money on a pillow?? Silly Antro.

Today was a tapering stroller run (half marathon on Sunday). I struggle with tapering, I feel like I’m getting fatter and slower by the hour.

My toddler son is going to be an astronaut – or a rocket man as he calls it.

Your random posts are my favorite! U need to introduce Brooke to Anne Geddes….she is definitely photo material!

I am always tired. 8.5 months pregnant here and the heartburn at night mixed with insomnia just about kills me during the day. Thank god for naps otherwise my 2yr old would be watching a lot of TV haha.
I’m going to be mrs. Claus! My husband is going to be Santa lol. I will look funny with the pregnant belly but the dress is very forgiving and stretchy. My little guy is going to be a dragon.

You and Brooke are so cute!! I can’t wait to see her halloween costume :) I have not picked mine out yet. My workout today was Body Pump…can’t live without it!

Reply

I think I would plant my face in that candycorn/candy/cookie mixture. That scooter/stroller is pretty bada$$ and I want one even though I don’t have a baby.
Awesome workout!!!

My workout for today was a 7.75 mi recovery run split between before and after work- 3.75 (NO time to finish the last 0.25!!) before and 4.0 after. It was a rather easy effor, so not too sweaty, although I was able to go at a higher speed in the afternoon without exerting as much energy. I have trouble moving in the mornings.

Random fact #1: My room is a mess and I probably will not clean in for a few day. There are things laying on the floor, on the bed, and one every other surface that can be utiliabkazed to throw junk on.

Random fact #2: I woke up at 2:00 am starving, so I went downstairs and ate a bowl of cereal, a slice of cinnamon Bahbka (sp?) and a [large] handful of peanuts.

This is very random but when I heard it I knew that I had to share it with you! I guess some farmers have been feeding their cows candy instead of corn because corn prices have went way up. They discovered that cows that ate the candy produced more milk! Just one more reason for you to eat candy! I swear this was on the news last night and I am not making it up!!

Reply

I can’t believe that pillow cost $190?! I feel like you could make it? Maybe with a plain pillow from TJMaxx, some stencils, and fabric paint??

Reply

That is the best idea! $190 is ridiculous!!!

That was going to be my suggestion too. Because seriously….$190!?!

Two random things:
1. You are awesome and I love this blog! I am a new runner and I love reading about your life! Yes, I know I’m a stalker ;-)

2. I love candy cornnnnnn and only eat it at Halloween. I work at Hallmark and they have “reindeer corn” for Christmas, “Cupid corn” at Valentine’s Day, and “Bunny corn” for Easter. They dye it so it looks different for every holiday but REAL candy corn only comes out at Halloween….in my opinion!

Have a great 10-11-12 day!! :)

Hey Lovely Lady… been reading your blog for a while and I heard on the radio that there is a recal for FMWs :( Oh noo’s… Brooke is adorable and I love her ohh so much!!! Plus I loved reading about your pregnancy and how you kept running and working out!

I know how much you love them ( I have ended my relationship with grains and your massive bowls of FMWs makes me them so bad)

Here is the article. Make sure you watch the recall so you dont get a bad box! Yikes

Rest day today, long run tomorrow.

I saw a peanut costume for a baby today at the store and I almost died. So cute!

I stay up late too. Not 2 am late, but I usually hit the hay around 11:30-12 at night because I don’t have to go to work until 10 am!

That oreo, candy corn, sprinkle thing looks absolutely amazing and I will be making that very soon. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

Brooke is so so so cute!

I have to make the recipe in Random Thing #7 very soon! Holy cow that looks good!

This morning I ran 6 miles. I’ve been getting a cramp/stitch under my rib that starts hurting as soon as I start running. For that reason, my workout wasn’t a sweaty one because I tried to go slow and steady so I wasn’t in so much pain!

I have been more tired than usual lately! I need to get more sleep!

Brooke is adorable!

You could totally make that pillow yourself. I bought a burlap pillow cover off of etsy a while back and found some stencils and a fabric marker and wrote out the pride & prejudice quote. It now sits on our bed and I didn’t spend a lot of money on it!

I haven’t worked out yet today….hope it’s sweaty – like, two shirt workout sweaty!

I’m very tired today…..I just wanna nap. I’m usually most tired right after I have a bowl of ice cream.

Random #1: I feel weird sitting on my couch without a blanket wrapped around me, no matter how hot it is.
Random #2: My feet are cold right now.

No Halloween costume for me this year – I just enjoy giving out candy to cute kids! I get such joy seeing the little ones dressed up!! If I had a baby, I think I would dress them up as a lion! RAWRRR!

I’m teaching a sweaty Zumba class tonight! I am tired today – I think because it is cold and rainy outside!

Random – it’s only 2 days until our five year wedding anniversary…I cannot believe it’s already been five years! It’s only NINE days until my first half marathon!!!!!!!! EEEK!!!!

Daniel and I are dressing up as Leonard and Penny from The Big Bang Theory. :)
