Brooke was in charge of setting up all of the plans for yesterday’s activities so she made a few phone calls after we woke up and got things moving.
First we went to church.
And then we were completely starving (because all we had eaten thus far were those Reese’s cups you see in the above picture) and ate at the first place we saw.
For the first time in the history of The Hungry Runner Girl you will hear me tell you that we went to a restaurant that I didn’t love and think was the best thing ever which is saying a lot because usually everything is my favorite. It is okay though because I was still very satisfied from our steak dinner the night before.
At least Brooke was excited about it. PS in college people thought me and this friend were sisters all of the time…
After lunch we did the shopping thing at Caesar’s Palace.
I have told you a million times that Brooke really likes animals but now I am even more convinced that we need to get her a pet asap so I am thinking we are going to start with fish.
We said our goodbyes (until our next girls trip) and Brooke and I got on the plane for our next adventure.
To keep things real so we can remember that bloggers/everyone on social media are still human (because sometimes blogs make us think that the writers aren’t human) Brooke and I both had meltdowns on the airplane. The poor man next to us felt so bad and tried to help but really all both of us needed was a little cryingfest. I felt a million times better afterwards and Brooke fell fast asleep. The grieving process is an interesting thing.
We flew to visit my Brother’s and his family in Arizona.
They had dinner ready for us and these were seriously amazing. Ham and Cheese Sliders. Make these.
And the sister-in-law and I finished off the night by making cheers with our ice cream.
This morning’s run should be really fun after the nutritious meals that I have eaten for the last few days.
What are your Labor Day plans?
What did you have for dinner last night?
What is a restaurant that you have eaten at that you didn’t really love in the last little while?
Ashley @ Eat Run Live Happy
you are just a traveling fool! I plan on getting a little run in today then picking up my kiddos! They’ve been with their dad all weekend. It’s been one hot weekend filled with running for us. (17 miler!) Have fun on your second trip!
Lauren @ The Highlands Life
I’m a nurse so I’m working today for time and a half.
We had dinner with friends last night and it was honey baked ham, roasted vegetables, salad and cornbread biscuits. Delish.
Ellie @ Double Trouble Running
Ah well done for having a little cry. Sometimes you just need to take a break from it all. I bet you felt loads better afterwards. :)
We ate breakfast for dinner last night, which I LOVE. Bacon and egg muffin – amazing.
So we don’t have Labor Day here in the UK! So I am at work.
And the restaurant I’m not in love with is Chiquitos – a Mexican chain here. It’s SUCH a shame cos I love Mexican, and this is the only one near us!!
Have a great time with your bro.
You are really busy these days with your travel! It sounds like you had a pretty great weekend (despite the mediocre restaurant) and I hope you have a great time in Arizona! I’ve been in that place where all you can do is cry, even in public. It happened to me last April actually and while it was kind of embarrassing, it really did make me feel better after. Everyone does it at some point or another! My labor day will probably be spent watching Revenge all day. I live a really exciting life. Have a ton of fun today Janae!
Jamie @ fitfortherun
Today I plan on getting a run in (not sure how many miles yet) For dinner last night I had BJs Parmesean Crusted Chicken and it was AMAZING!
Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs
Sounds like a great trip! Sometimes a good cry makes all the difference :)
Enjoy your time with your brother & family!
Kim @ Hungry Healthy Girl
Dinner was a really good pasta and shrimp dish that I threw together. I’m sorry that you and Brooke had a difficult time on the flight. I bet it made it almost all better getting to spend time with your brother. Have a great visit with him!
Debbie @ Deb Runs
It sounds like you had a great time with your friends. Crying is a necessary part of grieving, so let it go when you need to!
I’m training clients this morning, but that’s okay since I really love my job! Last night we had a big salad with grill chicken on top. It was delish!
Jessica R @ FromtheKitchentotheRoad
I am always amazed how much better I feel after a good cry. It’s like a release of some sort the you can function again. Last night we had a picnic dinner with the fam for mine and my sister in laws birthday. It was fun. I also had about 400 desserts. I couldn’t stop myself.
The run might go better than you think, I had one of my best long runs after eating cookie dough for dinner the night before.
A good cry can be such a relief! Hugs being sent your way!
I had a HOT HUMID ( 96% humidity) 18 mile run yesterday followed by hours jumping waves in the ocean so today is pure recovery! We are heading home from the beach to go on our annual apple picking adventure!
Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More
Today I continue to pray for you. And I cry a little with you because I know how hard it all is, but at the same time you are so right. It is all part of the grieving and healing process.
Glad to hear you get to spend time with your brother! Family has an amazing way of making so many things better.
Today my girls and I are going on to explore a new bike trail. We are pretty excited that the hot temps dropped 20 degrees overnight! I might join my mom for a couple hours at a festival this morning, if she still insists on taking me.
Last night I had my favorite veggie bowl from Chipotle. It’s always good!
Anne @ CandyCrazedrun.wordpress.com
That is so wonderful you got to spend some time with your college girls! I miss mine like crazy right now. I hope your time with your bro is the best in the whole wide world. I absolutely love seeing my family and wish I got to see my siblings more.
Best of luck!
When I was going through my very sudden divorce 3 years ago, I had a scheduled job interview that could not be moved. I held it together during the two days of interviews but when the cab picked me up to take me to the airport for the ride home, I had a complete meltdown and cried hysterically. The cab driver was so kind to me and he even checked my bags in for me at the curb and wished me well. The grieving process for the death of a marriage is long and weird. But after the darkness, light really does filter through your life much more brightly than before. Sending you lots of heartfelt peace and love. PS- I did end up getting the job and met my-now-husband there a year ago.
This is a great story. Thanks for sharing! The P.S made me smile….everything is part of the plan!
Kelly in Canada
I’m a teacher and I just found out on Thursday where/what I’m teaching, so I’ll be continuing to do today what I’ve been doing for the past 3 days: set up my classroom! Last night I almost didn’t have dinner at all b/c I got so distracted in my classroom that I forgot to eat! Finally I made myself go home, eat leftover blueberry pancakes, and go to bed.
eh win some, lose some, right? having fun with your friends all weekend definitely won against eating right for a run :)
have a great time with your brother. sometimes all you need is a good cry to get it out and move on. honestly, i feel so much better after a cry. i love that the man was trying to help you; it was very nice of him!
I had subway last night for dinner :) no labor day plans, but i’m ok with that!
Lindsey S @ Run by Faith
Well… I actually had my most recent public cry and bad dining experience at the same time! After being practically ignored by our server, at the end of the meal he accused me of not paying our bill! (Might I say, AFTER my sister had actually paid AND I had convinced her to go ahead and leave a tip despite the BAD service!!) I was so angry and embarrassed that I broke down in tears! Eventually it got straightened out and they gave us a $50 gift card for the trouble…but we probably won’t be back!
Katie @ Bevo Loves an Aggie
Sometimes crying it out is the best medicine!
No big labor day plans. Dinner the past two nights was baked potatoes…I get addicted to foods and crave them!
Today I’m starting off my day with a five mile run. I came to your blog to get me moving. :-) When I get back I am going to spend the rest of the day with my dad!! He is down visiting me for the week. Last night we had Chinese food for dinner since no one wanted to cook.
Sometimes crying is very refreshing like something gets released inside of the tears. You are awesome!
Sometimes all you can do is cry! :) Ending my nights with ice cream is one of my favorites, especially with good company.
I don’t have any major plans today for Labor Day, but I have had a great weekend spending it with an old friend!
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine
It’s a very rainy and storming day here in Jersey, so no outside Labor day plans at least!
Last night I ate one of my favorite vegan stuffed portobello caps and baked cinnamon sweet potato fries! So good!
Jen @ milesandblessings
It is so hard to leave friends…I hear ya on that!
We had homemade pizza for dinner last night and we don’t have any plans today!!! (you know you are getting old when that sounds fun :) ).
I am procrastinating a hard run right now…hehe
With all you world traveling can you look at this post I did….
If you happen to see a postcard and have a minute :)
Kimberly @ Keeping up With Kimberly
Looks like you had a great weekend!
I have a full day of homework planned (not the most exciting way to spend Labor Day, but in 2 years, I’ll get my holidays back!). I have a run planned for this afternoon – 4 or 5 miles depending on how I feel.
Enjoy your time with you brother. Spending time with family is the best.
Last time I went to Panera it disappointed me(and I love Panera).
I think I had a meltdown after that dinner……not because of the dinner but it somehow is what opened the emotional flood gates.
Glad you are in az with your bro. Keep remembering your phrase “light always follows darkness”
Have you heard the song “Shake it out” by Florance and the machine? It has that line, “its always darkest before the dawn.”
If music is therapeutic, put it on a future playlist, you won’t be disappointed.
5 miles this morning….we had baked potato bar last night…lots of veggies…so good! Cheddar’s is low on my list of restaurants I want to eat at and give my money to!
I hate when that happens at restaurants. The last one that disappointed me was a little pizza place down the road…more for their service though because they were pretty rude. Moving on, I know what you mean about those runs. With moving this next week I won’t be eating the best things so my runs are going to be interesting at best LOL.
Allee @ Griselda Mood
Aw, so happy to hear that you’re keeping busy, surrounding yourself with good people and having FUN! Don’t worry about a little meltdown– it happens and it’s a GOOD thing!
Leigha @ Minougirl
Today I’m enjoying my last day before I start high school! I might become self hosted today :) I also need to get a run in. Dinner last night was bruschetta, broccoli, green beans, and cottage cheese… delissh!!
Luv What You Do
We ate at a BBQ yesterday where there was TONS of cheese which means I am not looking forward to this mornings run. Luckily it’s a short one!
Cry jigs can have a very positive cathartic effect on our emotions so do not worry :) How fun to go and visit your big brother and his wonderful wife, I just know you will have so much fun. Last night we ate at Cafe Rio! :) I just love their nachos with fire grilled steak. Have a great visit!
Nothing wrong with having a meltdown, sometimes they are needed to get all that pent up hurt and frustration to a manageable place again.
Have fun in Arizona! Best thing you can do is surround yourself with positive and supportive people.
Meltdowns on the plane/ airport are the worst. When I was dating/married to my American hubby, we lived apart and when I would head home I was a mess. Poor people on the plane probably thought I was nuts. Anyway, good to get it out! enjoy arizona!
Aw janae, it’s ok to cry! You are so strong!
Labor Day plans are to relax and kick up my feet! I had a 20 miler yesterday so recovery mode has commenced:) Dinner last night was a mushroom swiss burger and sweet potato fries at the most amazing burger joint in Milwaukee.
Your family always has the BEST ice cream flavors:) Our grocery store chain in Milwaukee had a Ben & Jerry’s coupon for “buy one get one free,” and I think I bought 10 pints (which means I got 10 for free). My freezer (finally) looks like your family’s must on a daily basis:)
I love Brooke’s aqua colored polka dot dress! So adorable.
Wendy @ New Moms Talk
Today we were going to visit Rainier, but I think we’ll just hike around the base of it instead. The traffic along one of the main roads to Rainier has been INSANE this entire weekend, and I’m not sure we really want to contend with more of it. (Side note- I love where my in-laws live!)
The last thing I had at a restaurant that was just meh was probably the stir fried veggies at a Japanese place in town. I had such high expectations for flavor and pep, and they were quite sub par on the pep scale.
Chelsea @ A Fit LittleOne
Today for me, is a leg workout, some grocery shopping with the boyfriend (my favorite), and some homework – for me this is a good day haha :) I understand what you mean, sometimes you just need to cry a little. I do it, sometimes I’m not even sure what the heck I’m crying about, but I always feel better afterward :)
You are being so strong and positive, a meltdown is only natural… I had one at the airport earlier this year, (about a man..) and I thought immigration wouldn’t let me in Kuwait. I was told to ‘get a grip’! Ha!
I am not surprised you haven’t had more meltdowns, unless you just aren’t talking about them. I hope you have a great time at your brother’s.
The grieving process is crazy!! I haven’t flown since my dad died but I cried in the car ALL the time. It is like you might not realize you are sad that day and then all of a sudden you think of something and boom here comes the tears. With time the tears come less often but I still sometimes think of something random and have a little crying fest. Keep your head up and things will very slowly start to feel easier.
Hugs, miss. Give yourself permission to grieve.
Alyssa @ See This Girl Run
I made this packet of protein pancakes that I got in my last Stride Box and had sausage. It was less than satisfactory so I had to eat some mint chocolate chip froyo.
Look at you traveling ladies! Have fun in AZ!
Hugs for you and Brooke x
Liz @ The Girl on Fire Now
I’ll continue to pray for you – I’m glad that you were able to cry a bit and let some of the grief out.
I definitely think you should get Brookers a dog – because you love them too, right? :)
So glad you had a great time in Vegas! You are in my home state, yea!
Headed to the outlets today to do some shopping and maybe get more workout clothes..yes!
Had Subway for dinner…one of those nights you don’t want to cook and just get dinner over with.
Sometimes a good cry is the best thing…glad you have little Brookie to help you through this tough time.
Aww Arizona! That’s where I live! I hope you woke up super early to get your run in!
Not much planned today except for our last day of the season at the pool, sob!
Last night our amazing neighbor made ribs, adobo spiced asparagus, grilled corn, and boston baked beans. I brought bacon wrapped chicken with a honey orange marinade and watermelon. Good eats!
Ashley @ Saving Money in your Twenties
I love how open you are on your blog, Janae! You are so honest even when it’s not super fun to talk about. You are doing an absolutely fabulous job keeping everything together and taking care of Brooke and keeping up with the blog and visiting with friends- I have no idea how you manage to do it all. I’d probably be crying 24/7! (also I laugh a little bit because I’m imagining that guy sitting next to you having no idea what to do with both of you crying!) Have so much fun in Arizona with your family!
Ashley @ My Food N Fitness Diaries
My sister and her boyfriend are out here visiting us, and we’ve been busy bees all weekend, so I think today will be more chill and relaxed. We may go show them Scheel’s and take them to the amazingness that is Cafe Rio. :)
I’m so glad you’ve been able to get away and visit some family and friends. Crying is totally a-okay to do…we need a good crying fest every once in awhile. Big hugs to you beautiful girl!
Every tear left is a step towards happiness. <3 Keep your head up, both of you! I'm rooting for you, girl!
Last night I had chipotle for dinner with EXTRA guacamole because the workers were feeling generous, I guess!
I've never been a fan of Applebees, to be honest!
Glad you are able to grieve whenever and wherever you need to, it’s really important to let it out.
Hope you have a great time with family in AZ!
Labor Day plans today are a BBQ at family’s house
I am Arizona too!!! But I live here :) what part are you visiting? Labor Day plans are minimal. Just enjoying a day off from work. Last nights dinner was a disaster. I ended up just eating lots and lots of grapes
Sam @ Better With Sprinkles
No shame on the breakdown – sometimes, all you really need is a good cry! And you may be surprised with your run, I’m pretty sure that the best run I’ve had in months came the morning after I had fish tacos, sweet potato fries and froyo.
Holly @ Healthy Living Holly
labor day plans: hanging out on the couch with my cat and drinking coffee!
last night i had a veggie burger salad with roasted veggies and balsamic for dinner! followed by an orange and some of my boyfriend’s crackers, because sharing is caring :)
I totally get the meltdown. It’s so normal, but people still think it’s weird. I always feel 10x better after a little meltdown; like, I know everything will work itself out after I let myself be sad for a minute. Chin up, you have the most beautiful daughter in the world :)
Hugs, girl <3
This weekend I've just been packing, shopping and cleaning getting ready to move into my new apartment. Not very exciting! But I'm going to try to convince my parents we need to BBQ tonight, so at least I'll get yummy food!
Hope you have a great time with your brother and his family!
Those ham and cheese sliders are to die for. Seriously.
I’m sorry you are hurting, girlie. I think those cryfests are normal, especially if (like me) you tend to bottle stuff up. Glad you got it out.
You two are such cute “buddies”! My daughter Amelia is 7 months and really wants to meet Brooke! She’s a longtime reader lol.
Maybe you’ll do a meet up at La Garande Orange?!
I love your brown bag- mind sharing where you got it?
Keep on keeping on- lots of love and positive thoughts being sent to you and Brooke :)
The Hungry Runner Girl
Hey! Thanks so much! It is from Nordstrom! It is Marc Jacobs. Shopping =therapy right;)
= amazing therapy! Dual purpose too- because you get to feel good and then LOOK good :) You look amazing- you are a real inspiration to many. I know it’s not easy…
PS- thanks for letting me know about the bag :)
The Hungry Runner Girl
Thanks so much heather!
Megan (The Lyons' Share)
Ugh, running after a weekend of indulgence is the worst … but it sounds like it was SO worth it, and the run will make you feel better!
Today. We slept in a little. I ran 10 miles with my dad- a first for both of us. We might grill tonight. I need to do some baking for the babies 1st bday party Saturday. Just hanging out. And I’m kind of hoping for a nap…
We had pizza last night on our way home from our little road trip. Incidentally it was the worst pizza I’ve ever had. Ever. Gag.
Gillian @ That's G
A good cry can be such a good release. You are so strong and I admire you so much for sharing this trying time with your readers. Hang in there!
Adriana @Laced Up With Lipstick
Sometimes we all need to cry to feel a little better. Izzy had a huge meltdown on a plane to visit my parents. I’m glad it was only an hour flight. I’m glad you had a good visit with friends.
Sometimes a good cry is just mandatory. I definitely feel you on that one. You and your friends are all so pretty! Looks like you had such a fun time! :) I love cheersing with ice cream too.
Meaghan @ Tale of Two Teachers
Long run today after some awful long weekend eating as well…
Didn’t love the restaurant I was at last night either. Food was decent but the service was just awful and I’m not one who usually notices things like that.
Everyone needs a good cry sometimes!
Good on you for letting it all out. I’m one who bottles it all up, then just ends up exploding into a jungle of emotion, which is never pretty, so good on you :)
You have such a wonderful family and friendship groups that support you and care for you. You’re a tough cookie.
Hi Janae! First time commenter, long time reader — I’ve been wanting to say something for a while now, but struggled to find meaningful words. Just wanted to let you know I think you are an INCREDIBLE person (we’re the same age and I just can’t even imagine doing everything you do!) and I truly wish you the best in every aspect of life. I used to be afraid to cry and show I was in pain after my parent’s divorce, and one of the best things I’ve ever learned is just to get it all out. We’re human. We don’t have control all the time. You’re still strong and so valuable :) Lots of love from San Francisco.
P.S. love love love me the MJ. My weakness too!
At the end of my seven year relationship there were a few months where it was basically a personal victory if I didn’t cry on the metro. And eye makeup was just impossible because putting eyeliner on puffy eyes from crying all night is like trying trying to write on a wet dry erase board or something, and even if I got makeup on I’d just cry it off. So I always looked as rough as I felt. Boo hiss. Keep on keepin on.
Nicole @ Work in Sweats Mama
Sometimes a good cry is just what we need! Have fun visiting your bro’s family in AZ. Please send some hugs to my twin niece & nephew while you’re there. Low key day for us. Catching up on chores, laundry & blogging after a week in Maine.
I’m glad you had such a good time with your friends, nor did I ever doubt that you were human. Glad you and Brooke were able to get a crying fest in, it always helps to get that out sometimes.
Labor day is spent on vacation for me right now, going to go walk the beach and enjoy my last full day on vacation (fly home tomorrow) with my best friend before I head back, and she moves.
Dinner last night was a yummy celebratory steak for RNR Virginia Beach half marathon!
I know how you feel and yes sometimes you just have to cry! :) it always makes you feel better though, so that is the good part!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
Can I come travel with you?! If you just leave a little extra room in your suitcase, maybe? All I ask is that you leave it a little unzipped so that I can still breathe and don’t get too claustrophobic ;)
Labour day plans include catching up on some random errands so that things aren’t -too- crazy tomorrow. And when that’s done? Hopefully some sun in the park!
Where in AZ?! Come hang out wih me and we can go hiking! :) If you’re in Phoenix, that is.
Isn’t it nice the relief you sometimes feel after a good cry? I know it’s hard, but that may just be the thing you needed.
Next stop on your trip around the US: Orlando, FL. Gabriella and I will be waiting. And we have LOTS of zoos to take the girls to :)
Love you both!
Hi, my name is Michelle. I am new to the world of running and recently started reading your blog. I love how you are so “real” and don’t try to come off as “the expert” where you pretend to live your life in strict perfect nutrition/fitness. And I love that you embrace your love of foods like ice cream and steak! Two of my personal faves :)
Your daughter is adorable..congratulations!
Jaeme + Randy
I had at least 3 public airplane/airport cry fits when Kate and I were on our journey to move to New York (ps I totally realize that moving is nothing compared to what you are dealing with, which should make you feel better about your breakdown). Sometimes that solves all your problems even if its only enough to get through one day.
Janae-my heart is just breaking for you. Sometimes a good cry is very cathartic-I promise the hurt will start to fade. Know that you are still in my prayers.
I came home to Louisiana to visit my mom and just had to show her some pictures of Brooke (I was afraid she was going to think I was weird for feeling so connected to someone I’ve never met) but she let out the biggest Awwwwwww ever when I showed her Brooke. Glad you have her on your team :)
Good for you and thank you for reminded us that we are ALL human. Life’s a journey, right? One day at a time!
Probably meaningless since I’m guessing you already ran, but sometimes I have the best runs after junk food weekends :) probably not great in the long term health scene. Maybe I’m just not serious enough of a runner to notice a difference lol!
any night is made better by ice cream!! Brooke is so cute!!
Runner Girl Eats
A good cry is needed every now and then. Glad you are feeilng better now! Last night we ate shrimp scampi at home and it was incredible. We ran earlier today and the rest of our plans involve pajamas, relaxing and eating more delicious food. Perfect day :)
Amy @ Run Mom Run
I adore your skirt! So cute.
I hate going to a restaurant and being disappointed in the food. It’s like getting underwear for Christmas, sure you still got a present and you know you should be happy about it, but it’s lame.
Crying can be good :-) I remember last spring when it was my last day at the school I had been working at for 3.5 years that I was so overwhelmed and upset that I hid in a closet for a bit and cried (I had a more admin type roll – no students left unattended, haha!). When I was going back to the office, a student saw me and asked why I was crying. I told her and she immediately hugged me and said everything was going to be ok!
Hugs to you sweet girl. Sometimes crying is the most therapeutic thing out there. Well ice cream too. We had Chili’s for dinner last night. I really don’t love Chili’s but my family does. I got the Bacon, avocado, chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun, and I actually loved it!
Nikki @ grab your kicks
We went to my parent’s cottage for Labor Day and though it’s beautiful up there, I hate how it throws my body out of whack. We usually eat later in the morning, then late lunch and eat really late at night. I hate it, but it’s tough when you’re on someone else’s time. I tried to plan some healthy snacks ahead of time, but I’ll be paying for how I ate this weekend. :( Not fun. I’m a routine girl all the way!
Friends are the best, and sometimes a little girls weekend is just what the doctor ordered.
I am always surprised how smart kids are with these iphones. Remember when a phone has a cord?
Anyways, crying on a plane is always an adventure. Just remember that you will probably not ever see them again and it’s good to get it out of your system. Emotions are pretty powerful and they need to come out instead of being trapped up inside, messing with your body, and causing a stir. Thinking of you two…
Janae you are awesome! You are so such a good mom to take Brooke with you on your adventures when you could probably leave her with your mom.
I would not relate to anyone who has never cried while traveling with kids, and you have more the reason to. Hugs :)
It seems like Brooke loves children and animals and most things–which will hopefully result in many potential career options (ten or twenty years from now.. ha!).
Do you know by any chance where that brown bag is from? It is on your back when you are looking at the fish in the aquarium.
The Hungry Runner Girl
Thanks Laura!!! It is a Marc Jacobs bag and I got it at Nordstrom!
Okay, Brooke’s little open-surprised-face as you’re holding the basket with the hamburger……SO CUTE!!! Those eyes! that expression!! So awesome!!
I’m with you and love everything. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t love a meal…. I made Jerk Chicken last night with potatoes and it was amazing.
I made this mistake of eating half a tub, maybe almost a tub, of ice cream on Saturday night before a 10km race Sunday. I’m sure I felt the ice cream in my quads in Sunday morning!
The cuteness that is Brookers never gets old! She is such a photo ham! Love it!
There’s something about travelling that is sooo emotional. I often cry when flying. Sometimes it’s a composed hair over my face cry, sometimes it’s a full on meltdown. Sometimes moving forward, figuratively and literally, just seems so hard, and there’s no way of hiding the fact of forward motion you’re flying. I think it’s a good thing. I hope you’re letting yourself feel what you’re feeling without judgment. Feel what you do when you do, and express it as you need to when you need to. Sending love and positivity you’re way Janae.
Sometimes you just got to have a crying meltdown.
Kari @ Running Ricig
Hang in there!!
We had homemade pizza for dinner last night. Our Labor day was pretty low key. We saw some friends, but mostly just hung out.
I’m visiting my BFF in less than two months and I’m already worried about having to say good bye :(
We are hanging with the family for Labor Day and spending most of the day in the pool. Dinner was Cinnamon Life with raspberries and blueberries mixed in :)
We ate at a hotel restaurant a few months ago that was icky.
I just wanted to send you (((hugs))) and tell you are doing an amazing job with everything you are going through!
I’m glad you are feeling better after the cry! The food looks delicious as always!
I’m visiting Arizona right now too! I love all the sunny days here. :)
I had a public meltdown, also on an airplane, just yesterday, For amusement’s sake: I’ve recently developed a paralyzing fear of flying (at the age of 30). It’s so foreign to me and absolutely terrifying, I spent the time waiting for our flight in and out of panic attacks in the Boise airport. I’m generally cheerful, optimistic, and silly, so this was way out of character and upsetting. As our flight got more and more delayed, I realized we weren’t going to make our connection. I held myself together while we spoke to someone to have our flights changed, and we ended up on a very small plane (scary propellers) from Boise to Seattle. I still held it together until we reached our cruising altitude and the beverage service began. The sweet flight attendant asked me what I would like to drink, I stared at him frozen for a solid 30 seconds, then broke down and sobbed hysterically to him “your plane is too small.” The poor guy spent the remainder of the flight trying to make me laugh, and I honestly felt the hugest sigh of relief once I just let myself cry. Hope that entertained you a bit. You’re certainly not alone, despite different circumstances. =)
Heather @ Run Like a G!
AHHHH, I love Vegas! The hubs and I stayed at Caesar’s! It is beautiful! Did you try the gelato there? Next time you go….it is amazing!
