Happy Friday friends!

I know you are all curious to see if I ran again yesterday.

I sure did. Another 4.50 miles.

Now remember, I do normally run quite often, it is just that since last Saturday, my runs are occurring as if I had not run the day before – completely free of any form of tired, sore, stiff and/or heavy legs.


One of my favorite ecards.

I am trying to keep myself from running this morning so that tomorrow’s long run isn’t affected but I really have the itch to run again.

I hate to cross train when I feel like a good run.

My Lifetime membership is really being neglected. I can’t justify paying it when I find myself only getting there once or even twice a week. I have decided to notify them that I wish to freeze the membership beginning August 1.

They require notification one month in advance so if I let them know now, they will honor my request.

I can unfreeze at any point so if I decide in August that I want to start going more, I can just walk in.

In other news, I took the boy for his monthly orthodontist appointment.

As you may recall, we often get in trouble at these appointments.

I say “we” because they blame me for his neglecting of the night brace.


If you ever felt I was exaggerating, here it is – it black and white. Or shall I say red.

I snapped a photo of the chart when no one was looking. Three separate times we have been accused of poor cooperation.

One time with an exclamation point.

Not this time friends.

Thank goodness. Because if I got in trouble again I was prepared to inform them that I am in summer messy mode and his wearing of the apparatus was at the bottom of my to-do list which I had yet to write.

Speaking of my to-do list, I don’t feel as though I accomplished everything I wanted to this week work-wise. But sometimes that can happen, yes?

Since it is the weekend, I am going to focus on what I am neglecting on my bucket list rather than my to-do list.

yellow watermelon

Ever had yellow watermelon? Me neither.

Rumor has it yellow watermelon is even better than the classic red.

I have big intentions of heading out east soon to a watermelon farm to locate the yellow fruit and see what all the hoopla is about.

pb and co

I have been talking for too long about making my way to the Peanut Butter & Co. Sandwich Shop in the city. I am disappointed in myself for not getting there yet.

carnival sunshine

I feel a cruise on the horizon. It has been on my mind for a while and I am all about checking out Carnival’s newest ship, Sunshine.

I know the cruise industry has taken a big hit and people are wary of boarding the ships these days but I remain unphased.

Carnival especially has been in the limelight but reviews and description of their newest ship make me quite curious and eager to plan a trip.

I don’t know that this weekend will allow for me to cross anything off my bucket list but we shall see.

Before I head out for my run (we all knew cross training wasn’t happening), here is my favorite ecard from this week:

chocolate cake

Have a great weekend!


I need to know:

Have you ever had yellow watermelon?

Do you have a bucket list?

Do you have a favorite cruise line?

    I’ve never had yellow watermelon, ad only discovered it existed about a month ago through a blog. I haven’t seen it in any stores around me so I guess ill have to keep searching. Have a great run today and long one tomorrow. And have an awesome weekend 🙂
