If I hadn't .....

If I hadn't gone running yesterday after I got home from work, I wouldn't have...
  • logged 3 miles for the day
  • had four near death experiences (ok, so I'm exaggerating...but cars need to give a girl some room)
  • seen these pretty flowers growing wild along the creek...

 and these...
  • witnessed two deer crossing the meadow (they stopped and stared at me like I was the one who was out of place HA)
  • enjoyed a lovely, relaxing bubble bath (ahhhh)
And if I hadn't gone running, I might not have been so pooped that I fell asleep on the couch circa 8:30 for.the.night. Thus the 24 hr late post... I think part of it was allergy related though. Ugh that stinkin ragweed.
Gotta run - a cute little handsome sweet loving 3 yr old boy is headed my way.
Oh boyeeee!

A day in the life of me

Today was a work day for me. Whoopee, you're thinkin, right? Well I was cravin a pop tart so after bumming fiddy cent from Kel and then scrapin up a quarter outta my wallet and borr'in another twinny fi from Di, I walked down to the vending machine that usually has my fave - strawberry pop tarts with icing. See, I had a glass of milk waitin for a partner. I got to the machine and what did my beautiful brown eyes see? The last strawberry poppy tart just a-waitin fer me! And the bonus was that it only cost 75 cents, not a buck like I expected. So upstairs I went with my happy little tart and returned the 25 to Di. It was a yummy tart. Ok, I ate both of em. Geez. A girl's gotta live.

Lunchtime for me most days is a workout at the gym. Today was TRX and it is awful. No lie! I make myself go, but it's soooo hard! Today I obviously didn't have enough fuel cuz midway through it I started seeing stars and the room spun a bit. I sat down and thought I was over it, but when I started back doing the thang, I had to cop a squat again. Ugh! The trainer asked if I had had any protein. I said no and I'm not tellin ya what I had, but it clearly wasn't enough for this! She kept askin. .. fruit? oatmeal? please don't tell me a doughnut... what did you eat honey? I bet I told her 5 times I AM NOT TELLIN YOU. And I'm not. So don't YOU go tellin her after readin this, ya hear?

At church tonight my friend loaned me some sweet jeans. Maybe when I rock em I'll take a pic and show ya. They're super cool. And I'm gonna take goooood care of em. 

Peace out!

It's a recap

I hadn't mentioned it, but last weekend after Riley visited he and Anthony both ended up on the sickly side... thankfully I didn't get it. Anthony's still struggling with the recuperation piece so we've kept it low key this weekend. Friday night he had a fantasy football draft. My favorite definition of fantasy comes from our friend Webster: hallucination. Or there's creative imagination. Either way, all these fellas are pretending to run a football team. Must be a guy thing cuz I just don't get it. Anyhoo, he was hogging the computer all night and when the cupboards are bare, momma's gotta get somebody to ride to Walmart with her circa 10pm. Yep, and the winner was.... Christy !!! Thanks for that.

Saturday morning I did some baby pics for a friend with a presh 8 week old girl. Separate post to come on those. Then straight from that, I hustled to a baby shower. Anthony's step cousin (to keep things simple)... she's havin' a girl (their first child) and she got lotsa cute baby things. And during the shower, I got to play with Layton, Anthony's cousin's baby boy who loves me a whole lot. After that Lyndy needed a nap. Done. Now, what to do next... of course, EAT. Zaxby's has yummy chicken and that sauce -- Swung through Belk to see if they had any cute beach wedding worthy dresses on clearance. BURMMP, nope. Anthony's friend is getting married on the beach in October and we is a-goin! Mm hmm yeah. Only bummer is that means we gotta miss another wedding that same night here in town. If I clone myself tween now & then, I'll let yall know. After that hop in Belk, we had to run in Walmart cuz OCD Anthony had to get a new toothbrush, a ritual he has after any illness.

Yesterday we of course went to church but other than that, we were pretty much lumps of nuthin. I did manage to finish a book a friend had loaned me. Today I started my morning with a nice shower and I did a bit of scrapbooking. Then I watched a Bio on Matthew McConnaughey I had DVR'd. Then I fiddled with pics on the puter, played my iPod and did a bent & wiggly puzzle or two. Are you jealous of my cushy life yet? I finally coaxed Anthony out of the house for dinner...Chili's as usual. (sigh) He never tires of that place. If we get to Heaven and there's a Chili's... oh never mind.

And then, I saved the best for last....
