One Of Those People


As I shrieked at my son for having the nerve to actually use the hand towels in his bathroom for their intended purposes, I realized I have become one of those adults.

hand towels

Actually, I realized in that moment that I am not only one of those adults, I am officially one of those mothers.

This can’t be good.

I promised myself I would forever remain cool and never turn into one of those mothers who constantly nags about ridiculous things, one who feels that only her shoes are clean enough to walk through the house (but mine truly are, I don’t know, I don’t step anywhere dirty), but like really, white hand towels come with an unspoken tag that says —— dry with your eyes, not with your hands.

And, after receiving this text early yesterday morning in regards to dinner last night, it really became clear I am just one those people.


There is nothing I appreciate more than when someone understands and respects my appetite, giving me advanced warning that I may be eating dinner later than normal/expected.

Sushi is always worth the wait. Always.


Anyway, moving on to things you may actually care about:

Don’t forget to use the Pro Compression discount code (PINK2) which I shared in my #HolidayRunList Gift Guide.

It’s good for 40% off your entire purchase and expires December 15, 2014, which oh my, is approaching before we know it.

Which also means that my Disney World trip is oh my, approaching before I know it!

Disney World bakery

I think about the above Disney World bakery case every twenty minutes or so since I booked our trip.

While I am reminding us of things, make sure you enter the two $100 Visa Gift Card giveaways I have going…

Before I go get this Friday moving, I have a few links that I keep meaning to share with you:

Do You Make These Five Running Mistakes?  – Well, do you?

Best And Worst Barre Exercises  – I love this because based upon the different barre routines I have come across, some positions seem  as though they can actually hurt rather than help, especially if not done correctly.

Vegan or Vegetarian Diet Might Be Best For Weight LossI believe it.

Protein In A Plant-Based Diet  – This RD recommends we all focus on making plant-based foods the star of our plates – not just vegans and vegetarians.

How We Test Shoes – Similar to what I learned at the Runner’s World Seminar, read how the Runner’s World shoe lab goes about testing out all of the running shoes they review!

Have a terrific weekend!


Do you actually use the hand towels in your bathroom?

If you have been to Disney World, what is your favorite Disney food/restaurant?

If you are going out for dinner later than normal, what do you have as a snack to hold you over?

    I am that person! I have hand towels that are just for looks in my bathroom too. I actually keep just a plan white hand towel under the sink for me to use 🙂 I feel like it fancifies (I am making that a word) your bathroom so much more.

    Happy Friday!

      And I absolutely have two handle towels under my son’s sink for the same reason!

    I am soooooo jealouuusss you are going to Disney! That is awesome, and talk about a sweet tooths dream! You have to show us all the goodies you find 🙂

    I love the snack text, I get similar ones hahaha, but at least then you know you have a healthy relationship with food, because you WiLL eat it when you need it….but actually….maybe not so much if we get so crabby if we have to eat late….oh well, no ones perfect 😉 Have a wonderful weekend!

      I get extremely crabby if I am hungry and waiting to eat which is why I avoid the situation by having a snack or small meal if I know my dinner reservations will be later than my appetite can handle. I have no patience for hungry!

  • Michele @ paleorunningmomma December 5, 2014, 7:04 am

    Haha I think I am still waiting to become one of those people, or mothers! With 3 kids I feel like I have no control over the state of my house and have mostly given up, save for my after dinner “clean up!” rampages. If I have a late dinner, which happens, like, never, I have been known to have wine as my appetizer. And maybe a lara bar 😉

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles December 5, 2014, 1:35 pm

      I try not to eat too late but some dinner reservations are later than my norm which means I need to #1 know this and #2, eat something so I don’t go hungry waiting for dinner! I would love to be a person who could have a glass of wine before dinner but alcohol and me, especially on a not full stomach, just means a fainting episode. Not fun!

  • Susie @ SuzLyfe December 5, 2014, 7:29 am

    In my opinion, hand towels are still fair game as long as your refold them perfectly. We were give a set of lace hand “towels” for our wedding and I actually had to ask Mom what they were….

    • The Cookie ChRUNicles December 5, 2014, 1:34 pm

      I agree on the refolding but the white hand towels should never be used. Or bought I guess.

  • Lisa @ Running Out Of Wine December 5, 2014, 7:31 am

    I have hand towels in our kitchen that are not supposed to be used, but of course no one else understands that:) I keep an older towel hanging over the drying rack which is to be used for drying hands and dishes. I try not to get too worked up over it, but if someone uses the decorative hand towels I immediately need to straighten them out! Its a habit I got from my parents.

      Ha- I have pretty dishtowels too in the kitchen which aren’t supposed to be used! Eventually though they get used and become part of the “usable” stack.

  • Amanda @ .running with spoons. December 5, 2014, 11:27 am

    😆 I do actually use the hand towels in my bathroom, but that’s mostly because mine are normal hand towels that are nothing special to look at. I’d probably be a little more hesitant if they looked fancy. I’m super anal about people not walking around in their shoes, though. And I can’t handle people messing up my kitchen. Just no.

    Yes – we use the towels in our bathrooms (even the guest bath!). There is nothing fancy about us:)
    Most nights I need a snack even when dinner is at the normal time.

    Those Disney bakery treats look amazing! Those alone will be worth the trip to Disney! I’m excited for when my little man is old enough to enjoy the Disney experience. Have fun!

    I usually snack on half a Clif bar or a Lara Bar. Or whatever I have lying around – banana, apple, carrot sticks – or all of the above at once!

    I am that person, but then again I’ve pretty much always been that person. At least my whole adult life. I’m quite comfortable using the hand towels but they better be lined up all neat and orderly when I’m done. 🙂

    That Disney bakery case is worth the trip.

    A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you need to write more about this issue, it might not
    be a taboo subject but typically people don’t speak about such issues.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
