How fantastic is that? Can you relate or what! I love it ha, cracked me right up!

This video made me beyond proud to be a runner, to be running Boston again this year, and to get to share this day with these rockstars. I am not going to lie I teared up with pride watching this.

Do you want the marathon in person? On TV? Are you excitied for the 2015 Team USA field.

This post on 22 Annoying Things Runners Say also made me laugh! A few top picks for me that I 110% say/ do ALL.THE.TIME  are:
4. Flood your social media feed with pictures of our running watches.
6. Bring our running shoes on vacation.
16. Say things like, “I have to leave early; I’ve got a long run in the morning.”
20. Wear weird things like compression sleeves and hydration belts while we run.
22. Assume that everyone is as obsessed with running as we are.
Any relate to you? Ha I can relate to most!

What are your weekend Plans?

How is your 2015 going?

Tell me something funny!

 

Just another manic Monday

It’s a good day to be a duck…
It’s RAINY in Boston but oh so warm! I wore shorts and a tank at the gym to embrace the summer time feel in the air, don’t worry it will drop back ASAP, but for today I will enjoy it!

Summertime feel in November.

How was your weekend?
Friday night we went HERE and it was a great night of wine, laughs and pizza. There were about 6 of us and I felt like stereotypical girls when we ordered “one flat bread” and the bartender was like for all of you ha. It’s an easy location spot, pretty good crowd but not overly crowded, and dinning upstairs/ in the back, so it’s prefect for whatever you are looking for.

Guess that bar?

Saturday I got to hang with my favorite mini people A and J and we went to a Holiday Fair to get in the holiday spirit early! They had a blast and so did I. Although I will say thank goodness my mom was there, she is a calm person, I am not so much, and when we got to the candle dipping after an hour I almost lost it, ha but it was a great day spending with them and moving at their pace.

Saturday Night, was friends thanksgiving! The company is always the highlight, but the food, and deserts ( think homemade whip cream) were the perfect additions as well! Do you do a friends Thanksgiving? I love it, you get dressed up, enjoy yummy food, and good wine, and realize how much you are grateful for! I didn’t snap any pictures, having too much fun! But I am grateful for my friends, especially A in CO who sent me these beauties last week, it seriously made me cry with how lucky I am to have friends like her.

Thank you A

Thank you A

Another thing I am obsessed with is Mr Michael Buble, and how it is now totally acceptable to listen to Christmas music non stop!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Also on a Christmas note I just bought these and am beyond excitied. I know you are just dying to know what sheets I buy ha, but yes I am very excitied for them, and think the flannel with make for a little warmer winter.

Yup these were a must buy.

Yup these were a must buy.

I also have a new list of must try fall/ winter sidecars. I try and avoid the Gluten so these will be new must tries this winter and fall. Any recommendations for ciders?

Taste Testing to be Done.

Sunday night we went here and I have to say it is seriously my favorite restaurant in Salem, it’s a little pricey, but the food is amazing and so are the drinks. J was telling me all he wanted for dessert was an Ice Cream sandwich and as I am trying to explain to him that’s not something they would have at a restaurant like this, the sweetest waitress in the world is like and for dessert we have, and yup you guessed it, chocolate chip or Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches, J was in Heaven!

How was your weekend?

I am making Pecan Pies!
