Weekend recap round up

Weekend recap round up

Well good morning. Hopefully everyone had a nice weekend


My dog was whining and barking like the annoying like shit she is (mostly kidding, she was just hyper) so we went for a walk. You can’t really tell in this picture, but I have on my Uggs which I so wish were still acceptable to wear past the age of 14. #RIP. Also necessary was my green tea.


Here she is trying to get as far away from me as possible.


I spent a good majority of my Friday sitting at a Starbucks working on blog work, school work, and some job work. It was such a nice day outside so it was a little painful to have to sit inside and work but what the hell do you expect? Shit won’t get done by itself haha.

The three of us (okay mostly me) ended up watching the new Cinderella that night! I might be biased because Cinderella is my favorite princess, but I loved the movie. The other two did agree that it was “cute” and “good” Bed followed shorty after that.


I had my first post marathon run! I love October running so so much. I did a 50 minute run without my Garmin on, so I have no clue what my pace or distance was. I’m guessing around 5 miles though.


I then headed to my dad and stepmom’s house so we could drive down to IU for some football tailgating! Glorious weather, jello shots, family and friends, great food and beer… what more could I ask for? I also got to see some of one of best friends who goes to school there! All in all it was a fun day spent with fun people.


I was pretty tired when we got home, but was determined for one thing. Frozen yogurt.

This is vanilla, coconut, and cake batter with one walnut on top eaten in bed of course.


Except it was too much and I felt sick afterwards whoops. I fell asleep shortly after that.


I knew I wanted to get another run in, but getting out of my warm bed was no small feat.

Eventually I did get another Garmin-less run in! It was 70 minutes and I’m guessing around 7 miles.

The rest of normal Sunday activities happened consisting of errands, homework, making chili and watching football and checking fantasy all day.

All leading up to the Colts Patriots game! It’s been a nervous and anxious day around these parts, but sadly the Colts lost : (

I hope you guys had a nice weekend, too! Make it a great day.


Weekend Recap

Good Monday morning!

Just kidding. Screw Mondays. And honestly, screw Tuesdays, too. Both of those days kind of suck.

What did you guys do this weekend? I had a really nice weekend and am sad that it is over now. Anyways, here’s what went down!


My morning started with an early wake up call to get my 20 (!!!) mile run in. My kind mama met up with me at mile 11 and rode along with me for the remaining 9. It was a really good run, you know, for as good as a 20 mile run can be. The hardest part was miles 16-18 because I knew I was close, but it still felt so far away. And at this point, I just was bored. Like I had already been running for 3 hours and just wanted to do something else! I’m going to do at least another 20 miler (I’m contemplating going up to 22) so having gotten through one, makes me optimistic for my next one.

After a shower, a smoothie, and some Food Network, I drove down to school and did a little work and returned some books. I hated having to go to school on a Saturday, but the lack of people there was refreshingly nice.

Once I got home, the rest of the day was spent sitting on the couch and just watching tv. Usually I’m super hungry on long run days, but I just was not hungry at all and even the thought of food just was really unappetizing. It was very disappointing haha.

After a while though it was time to get ready, because my brother, one of his friends and I were going to the Justin Moore and Brad Paisley concert! It was such a fun night! Brad Paisley seriously put on a great show! We got home close to midnight, and I promptly fell asleep.


Sleeping in until 9 am was such a glorious feeling and I laid in bed and read Grey. What can I say? That series is a guilty pleasure Winking smile

I ventured downstairs eventually for some coffee, eggs and a bowl of cereal, only then to return to bed and watch The Dark Knight.

Eventually once I looked outside, I realized it was a gorgeous day! So I put on my swimming suit and walked down to our neighborhood pool. I am currently reading Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead. I am about 1/3 of the way through, and it is pretty good so far!

Later on in the evening, I put on the last IndyCar race of the season! It was an awesome race, and the fact that it was the last one was huge in terms of points and standings and who ultimately would win the IndyCar Championship Series.

Dinner was shrimp, green beans, and a frozen bag of quinoa. Simple, easy, and delicious.

Now I am seriously craving frozen yogurt. I think that is going to happen sometime soon…

Enjoy the rest of your day! I hope it is sunny where ever you may be Smile

Scenes from the weekend

Scenes from the weekend

Hello hello! How are we doing this Monday Wednesday morning? Hopefully you guys have been getting some sunshine like we have been, too!


My best friend came over on Friday night and we played tennis! It was so. hot. outside. So we jumped in the pool afterwards!


I had my first long training run for marathon training. 10 miles done by 8:15! I love feeling so accomplished so early in the morning.

Then like a champ, I walked into the grocery store and bought two cases of beer. 10 miles and 2 cases of beer all accomplished by 8:30 am. Go me.

My mom and I wondered down to the pool and laid out for a while.

I had to start getting ready though, because my brother, my best friend, and his little brother were going to the Indy Eleven game, which is the local minor league soccer team here in Indy. My stepmom gave me tickets for my birthday and the game was a lot of fun!

I dropped my brother off and we headed back to my friends house for kabobs, fire pits, and just hanging out.


Welp now that it’s Wednesday, I can’t remember what I did!

Once again. Go me.

Shenanigans from my weekend

Shenanigans from my weekend

Good morning! Happy Tuesday. Coming at ya one day late here. How was your weekend? I love that it is finally getting and staying warm and sunny! That means lots of walks, playing tennis, sitting on the patio, running, oh how the list could just go on. Well, I had a fantastic Saturday and a mostly good Sunday (except for a chunk of time where I had to study and take a final).


Knowing I was racing (and getting up at an ungodly early time), I kept things simple and stayed in. Hockey playoffs and reading kept me preoccupied.


My morning started bright and early with an alarm going off at 4:45. Here’s my breakfast, because I know you want to know:


(oatmeal with a banana, hard boiled egg, and an iced coffee.)

I left the house at 6 and headed to my friend’s house to meet up before the race.

Then I ran! OneAmerica 500 Festival Recap HERE!!

Here we are all post race:


The rest of the day was spent resting, eating, watching tv, eating, and going to bed at 9:15.


I woke up at a leisurely 8 am… almost 11 hours of sleep!

I treated myself to pancakes : ) and lots of coffee! Yummy.

Sadly I had my accounting final today from 4-6 (like please pick a worse time to have a final, especially on a SUNDAY! side note- this is my third semester in a row with a final on a Sunday), so much of my day was spent studying. YUCK.

Welp. I’m here to report the test was hard. But I am so happy that I never, ever, never have to look at an accounting book again. Understatement: I loathed my accounting classes.

That’s all I have for you guys for now. Make today great!
