Random Things To Share


Happy Friday! I really just have a few random things to share today.

First, my mother read yesterday’s post and wasn’t bothered by the fact that I left the house without pants on.

Can someone please explain to me why in the winter she never feels I am dressed appropriately (WHERE’S YOUR COAT) but has no issue with me leaving my house without shorts or pants in the summer? Is it simply a temperature thing? If it’s cold, I should be dressed warm enough, if it’s hot out, who cares if I cover my bottom appropriately?

It doesn’t seem right but okay.

This is my favorite song while running right now. Of course it is. It’s called Cake. I like cake.


I went to Trader Joe’s the other day. Although I didn’t stop to put together a list of everything I bought to share, I did want to say that I bought the fire roasted with balsamic butter sauce vegetables for the first time in a while.

I always liked the flavor of these vegetables and really enjoyed it this week as something different.

I like to combine these fire roasted with balsamic butter sauce vegetables with plain vegetables and potatoes – the sauce goes a long way.

Speaking of potatoes, I also bought a bag of the potato medley. It’s in the produce section with the other potatoes. In the bag are baby purple, red and white potatoes. Make sure you get them! I love the variety and they roast quick.

The forecast is calling for heavy rain in the morning which means I may switch up my long run day. I’m not interested in running in pouring rain and see no reason to tough it out on the treadmill when I can just run long outdoors on Sunday. I will let you know what I end up doing!

Have a great weekend. 🙂

    I havent even looked at the weather for this weekend or planned my workouts. I think this blister I have developed is going to interfere with running for a couple of days, but Im hoping wearing different shoes will help. I think my mom would be very upset if she read on my blog that I left the house without pants! Not sure she would care so much about the coat thing.

    Jake went rollerblading down a busy road completely naked once. :/ It was some sort of bet or dare or something. 16 year olds are fun. Sometimes it’s better if I just don’t know those things.

    Rhianna has a song called Birthday Cake. It is VERY explicit.

    I’d totally switch around my long run days to avoid a downpour!!!

    I’ve moved around long runs several times to avoid the pouring rain – it just makes me feel tired and cold for the rest of the day! This weekend we are volunteering at church and then meeting some college friends up in the city. I’m just mostly excited that it is Friday!

    Those veggies look delish! I am visiting my BFF in Waco for 2 nights and then we leave for our cruise early tomorrow morning which means my long run will be on the treadmill on Sunday, not my first choice but I don’t want to get up at 4am for a run, especially when I’m still on Cali time!
