Fall is here! I am hoping!

Just have time for a quickly bullet post

  • Twice a year I do a kid's clothes/toys consignment sale.  Last week and this last weekend I spent most of my free time (like I really have any!!) volunteering at the sale.  Historically I make between $500-$1000 dollars and I meet some nice mothers and all in all it's a pretty good time.  I will say that I was exhausted last week though...between working there, real work all day, home stuff, workouts, running.....I was extremely run down.  I am glad it's over and I have this week to get back to my normal schedule.

  • Sunday I was supposed to do a trail run with Luke's Locker but it had been raining for a few days, and being the inexperienced trail runner I am, I knew I would probably fall or hurt myself so I opted to run with Erin and Mick in Georgetown instead.  It was a tough run for me....after a week of weird sleep and junk food I was just not feeling up to running 8 miles.  And this is where my thankfulness to running friends comes in...they kept me going at a great pace, and the miles went by pretty fast with good conversation.  I will say I was done with 8 though...I don't think I could have gone much further!

  • Sunday afternoon we took Phene to see finding Nemo.  I convinced Sean to come with me so he could help me keep her in her was ok...I think Sean and I both agreed that maybe we should hold off on movie theatres until Phene is 4 years old and perhaps has an attention span that last a teeny bit longer.  Again I ate way too much....we stopped at the market before the movie (Yep, I am that type of person!) and got yogurt covered raisins...I probably ate more than 100...better than movie popcorn with butter though right??!!

  • 3 More weeks until my next half marathon!  I have been sticking to the running plan and so far it's been working pretty well.  Though my hip is flaring up a lots of ice and rolling out for me this week.  I feel confident I will do well, and hopefully best my time 1:52:50 from last year's SUPER hilly Decker 1/2 Marathon.  This Tyler course I am running has some hills though too, so we shall see!  I am getting nervous already and just pray/hope/pray/hope that I stay uninjured and I am able to run it!

  • The weather has been cooler which I am loving!!  But now I feel like I have to dig out my winter workout gear.   And of course I am now on the hunt for some more running tights.  I have a pair of Under Armour pants that I wore last year that I really like and I just might buy another pair of those.  Anyone have any recommendations for winter running pants?  I saw these on the Lululemon site this morning that look nice...But Ahhhhhemmm......$98!  And I didn't see one pair of these in my size on ebay :(

  • This weekend I ran in to an old friend...and by old I mean we used to be friends awhile back, not that we have been friends for a long time.  We had a falling out and haven't really talked or seen each other for at least a year.  I happened upon her in the parking lot at the consignment sale and I was prepared to say hello and at least be cordial.  I walked around the side of my car headed towards the sale and her car was on the way.  She was sitting in the car with another girl and they looked at me and laughed...I mean like ridiculous high school girl laugh.  It was the weirdest thing.  In a way I felt really hurt, and in another way I felt sad that she had to act that way.  They were obviously laughing at me, and I know she wouldn't have acted that way if she was by herself.  You would think woman in their 30's would start maturing to the point where you can at least be cordial to someone you once had a relationship with.  Ignore me and I am fine with that...but laugh?
  • We are on the first season of the show Homeland.  I am loving it!  It's a little twisted and Claire Dane's character is a little wacky and keeps you guessing.  I can't wait to see the next season when it comes out!

  • Who do you think the top 2 are going to be on SYTYCD? We think it's going to be Chehon and Eliana.
Alright that's all I have.  I hope everyone has a great week!


  1. OOOH get some pants. I just adore them. Check them out. You won't be sorry :D

  2. Hope you make some $$ off the sale! It sounds great!

    I am loving the cooler weather, too, but not the price of winter running gear!! My favorite pair of running tights are from our local running store. I think maybe Asiics or Saucony is the brand? I'll check!

  3. I'm just diving into Breaking Bad, and moved through the first season in three days. Homeland I hear is excellent. Is it tacky to say, but this seems to be a new golden age of TV.

    In other news, your live traffic feed is a tad bit creepy. But creepy in a good way.
