Last week it was gumballs making me smile. This week I have moved on to nail polish.
I get real excited when I encounter a wall full of pretty polishes! But lately, as much as I love getting a pedicure, I have become overprotective of my feet.
I think it’s the runner in me on guard, afraid someone will mess with my toes the wrong way and affect how I run. Sounds nutty, I know, but it’s all I can come up with to explain why suddenly I spend my pedicure directing the nail technician not to file so much, please don’t cut my cuticles, be gentle on the scrubbing…who have I become?!
Pedicures used to be my happy place! It’s a good thing I still look forward to Red Mango…
I actually had lunch at Red Mango twice in the last few days which makes me extremely happy because I can load up on fresh blueberries all I want which is not something I can do at home since I still can’t locate them in the grocery stores for a decent price!
I am so honored that Red Mango knows me so well that when looking at a picture of two parfaits, they are able to pick which one is mine!
So my Islanders lost the other night in the seventh game against the Capitals. Season over.
You should also know that shortly after the season-ending playoff loss, my son decided to randomly come down with a stomach virus.
Why does it always seem that stomach bugs hit late at night when you are going to sleep?
Please continue to pray that I do not catch it, not only because it’s the absolutely worst but because I have a half marathon to run on Sunday!
It’s been a long while since my son has been sick to the point where he actually needs me.
Immediately I was thrown back into mommy mode, reminiscent of those baby/toddler days when he needed me a whole lot when I wanted to sleep; first when nursing and then when sick in the middle of the night. I really don’t know how I did it, how I hardly slept and even worse, how I slept and got woken up with no choice but to cater to his needs.
I will admit though, it was pretty cool to see that as deep asleep as I would fall the other night in between his moments of sickness, my mom instinct knew when to wake up and run to him because he was up and needing me.
Or maybe it was my cleaning instinct that alerted me to get the heck up before he was sick on the carpet.
I can’t help but #TBT for a second back to the summer of 2005…
That little bunny face gets me every time. Bunny has been my son’s nickname since a few days after he was born (like Benjamin Bunny). I still call him bunny and since he responds without noticing, I have no plans to change things.
My bunny must be on the mend from this virus because the other night when I needed to be in the city for that event, he sent me this text after mapping out the location of the venue I was at in Manhattan.
Is he my child, or what?
I wish I could say that I am happy about today being the last day of April because normally I like May.
I love Mother’s Day, the warm weather, the approaching start of pool/beach season and that June is on the horizon which means my birthday (June 5th!) but right now, all I can think about is that today is the last day of April which means it is the last day of my free Panera coffee.

If you are a runner, do pedicures ever bother you? What color is on your toes now? I got Essie Off The Shoulder!
What are you looking forward to in May?
Ever been to Magnolia Bakery? We really like the banana pudding 🙂
