Five Fun Friday Fings

Happy Friday! For some reason Ben and I both woke up around 4:45am and couldn’t go back to sleep. Instead of fighting it he got ready for work and I got ready for run.

Run – I did 6 miles and felt GREAT the whole time. No music either – just my big ol’ head movies.

When Ben sat down to breakfast he noticed a lady bug hanging out on our kitchen table! They’re good luck. But, this one came here to die, so I’m not sure if that’s still lucky?IMG_6837 (800x533)

Ben made himself an egg sandwich and served it up on my Christmas ornament plate. I always think that is so weird?! He uses my Christmas and Easter plates all the time. He just sees a vehicle to serve his food, but I see holidays and it makes me confused.IMG_6836 (800x533)

On to Five Fun Friday Things…

1. I have a huge crush on this guy lately. ben and bailey1

I’m not sure if it’s that dimple or his ability to put on a proper lady bug burial before work, but I’m a fan…IMG_5409 (800x533)Photo bomb Cathy!

2. This guy did a full review of Five Guys Burgers and Fries in his car. It’s a little lengthy, so here’s the remix.

3. Skinny Runner and I are doing a last minute half marathon on Sunday! So, I’m swapping out my long run tomorrow to rest my legs (read: be lazy, watch trash TV, eat carbs).

She suggested we dress up for the race, so I’ll be spending hours slaving over my “annoying blogger who takes too many self portraits” costume.

Wait. I’m done. IMG_8320 (600x800)

4. I’ve been obsessed with squeezing lemon in my water this week and now I dance around with the lemon and channel this puppy when I partake…

This is the CUTEST puppy video ever – Puppy vs. Lemon

5. I’m having lunch with my little brother today! We’re going to Panera because I’ve totally been craving it Smile

What’s your weekend look like?

    Love Panera! Good luck at your half marathon!

    We’re replacing our stupid water heater today and going out to dinner at Cooper’s Hawk tomorrow. Can’t wait! For dinner, not about the stupid water heater.

    Oh good golly…Holiday dishes must be sequestered until their appropriate holiday!
    I get depressed when I see some crazy Target Santa mug being used in July. It’s so wrong! Go away Santa…we’re not ready for you!
    I feel very strongly about this matter. Thank you for addressing it.

    I totally posted both of those videos on my FB page. I thought I was the only one who reacted that way when I ate Five Guys. I was so psyched to see one at the airport after my first marathon and I felt no guilt eating it! :)
    Have a great race on Sunday!

    I love Panera, their chicken sesame salad is my all time favorite salad.

    I saw SR’s entry about the fun run and saw a lot of watermelon..please tell me you went.

    It’s a long weekend over here for Eid Fitri (Mon and Tues are holidays) – it’s a staycation for me but will be visiting a few Eid open houses (Muslim friends celebrating the occasion “throw open their doors and invite friends/relatives/family for a meal -lunch/tea/dinner”). Putting in some long runs, yoga and strength training as well. All’s good.
