Hello! How are you doing? What’s going on in your world? Running? A race? An eating contest? Cooking? Sleeping? All of the above??
I don’t know why I’m so energetic right now – it’s extremely early in the morning but I can’t go back to sleep so I’m going to chat with you and then get my day started. What should we chat about… I vote running and eating.
How ‘bout running AND eating at the same time? I only suggest this because yesterday I was running along the bike path like I usually do when I came upon something random on the sidewalk…
Wait. Is that a loaf of bread?
Yes, yes it is. Which was perfect because I needed some carbs at that point in my run. I just considered it a surprise aid station!
Then I was running along minding my own business, listening to a podcast when out of nowhere something jumped out and grabbed me. For a second I thought I was a fish caught on a hook! I tried to resist but I was stuck and saw my lil fishy life flash before my eyes.
But I quickly realized I just ran too close by a wooden pole in the path as I turned a corner and it caught my shirt – ripping it as I passed. #Fail
Check out my instagram video for my immediate reaction.
I was upset about the shirt so I did the obvious thing…
Bought a new one and then went to Costco for samples.
Now I have to share some kinda sad news…
You know how I always say I have 1 friend?
Well, that is mostly because I seriously only have 1 friend.
I considered SR my 1 friend for the last few years, but then she moved away (and I will continue to guilt trip her forever for it).
But I do have a few other people that I love and are technically my friends too – one of those people is Bobbi (from N Her Shoes). I’ve known Bobbi for probably about 6 years now. We met through blogging and she lives in SoCal so we’ve attended events together and ran together and text like friends do. She’s is a really great person with a great heart.

So I’m super sad that she is moving to Arizona. I’m pretty well adjusted in life except for this thing where I cannot handle good-byes. I CAN NOT. But instead of avoiding the situation I went to the party she was throwing as a going away / her daughter’s 3rd birthday.
They live inland a bit so we don’t hang out as much as I would have liked but we always end up catching up at Disney events or in LA.
Luckily, my niece lives in the area so I picked her up to come to the party too. She is a little sassy pants though and refused to hold my hand as we walked into the fiesta no matter how much I begged.
If she doesn’t want to do something she just stands still as a statue until you leave her alone.
Ha! I’m going to try that…
(The dress is from Fabletics)
She chilled out after a minute and had a lot of fun in the jumper.
Speaking of… I really want to get a jumper for no reason someday and just jump until I’m exhausted then drink some fruit punch and jump more. And maybe get two jumpers – one for just adults so we don’t have to worry about jumping carefully!! Isn’t this a good idea?!
P.S. – I didn’t get a good picture of the top of this dress, but it has a fun off-the-shoulder neckline. It’s from Fabletics. They sell mostly cute workout gear but have casual dresses and jackets too.
Right now Fabletics has a great sale – $15.00 for your first outfit! They sell my FAVORITE leggings and capris (it’s the same design that comes in different lengths). I have 4 pairs of them now and it’s all I wear for life, yoga, shopping, relaxing, taking walks… (I like the Salar and Winn leggings and capris.)
