So like, I know Taylor Swift is in a major conflict right now with Kim and Kanye but I don’t want any part of that. I love my Kardashians and lately I am obsessed with listening to a select group of Taylor Swift’s songs on repeat during my runs so I am not taking any sides and will be staying out of their war.
- Wildest Dreams
- Out of Style
- Out of the Woods
- You Belong With Me
Not your typical running music I suppose but mentally these songs have been making me happy each morning when I run for the last several weeks.
I have also been on repeat a bit with Celine Dion’s It’s All Coming Back To Me. I think this happened last year too, let me check for the post reference…..here it is. Ah yes, I remember that Thinking Out Loud post well, it was the day I said it’s okay to eat cake for lunch sometimes. And I still agree obviously since I had cake for lunch last weekend.
I really liked my lunch yesterday, that’s for sure. I stopped at Red Mango to grab a parfait and ate it outside while on a few work calls.
I didn’t mind taking work calls while eating my parfait because these work calls were actually with my bestest friend Heather who lives down in Florida. I think I told you that we both ended up working in the event industry (she’s a really big deal down in South Florida) and yesterday she was hosting an event for us (us as in AllSeated) and we were going over a few details prior to the start of the luncheon.
It’s always nice when Heather and my other good pal Dina (who lives here in NY but was down in Florida for the event!) send me photos from these events to say hi because they miss me.
The good news is that we will all be together at my son’s Bar Mitzvah because Heather is definitely flying up for the occasion! I am so super happy you have no idea.
My son requested real snacks (that’s how he phrased it, as if the food I buy isn’t real and the processed sh*t he likes is authentic from nature) to have in the house for this week before he leaves for camp.
I agreed to take him to Target and I also agreed to keep my mouth shut regarding his selections.
I will admit that I did have to chime in when he wanted microwave popcorn. I sort of googled and pulled up an article right there in the aisle, reciting how the microwave popcorn bags can cause cancer but other than that, I was quiet.
Now, if it were me heading into Target on a mission for crap snacks (sorry, real snacks as my son says), you would find me in the snack cake and cookie aisle.
I would get a package of Oreo’s to pile into a cup of milk to eat all mashed up. I would grab an Entenmann’s chocolate cake and eat it ever so carefully straight from the box, making rows with my fork (not that I have a history of this or anything) and would have selected Ring Ding’s, Chips Ahoy (the original ones) and a pound of M&M’s for good measure.
I would not have picked Lay’s Cheddar, Bacon Mac & Cheese potato chips. That’s for sure. The smell of these chips alone could kill me.
I must share this link I saw earlier this week of the Top 10 Favorite Barbie Playsets which melted my little girl heart.
I had every Barbie play set listed in the article (I loved that Dream House!) but I don’t believe I had the horse. My Barbie dolls didn’t ride horses, they preferred the Corvette Convertibles.
Time for me to eat and run! By the way, I switched from MapMyRun this week to Run Keeper and so far, I am much happier. Run Keeper is tracking the distance accurately rather than coming up short like MapMyRun has been for weeks. More on this in my recap on Sunday.
