1. I ran 5.25 miles tonight in 1 hour. I have to say… I felt good. I didn’t try to push my pace. I just kept it slow and steady. It paid off because it was my best run in a while.

I didn’t mention it on here, but I got sick after my race Sunday. I was down and out Sunday and Monday. I had zero appetite and got tired really easily. I thought I was gonna roll over and die after just bringing laundry upstairs. It was not fun. Finally on Tuesday I was able to eat something substantial. I ran 2 slow “comeback” miles on Wednesday just to test my body out. Today, I officially feel 100%. Woooo! Just in time. 10 days baby!

2. My boss’s boss’s boss (did you get that) sent our team a GIANT edible arrangements bouquet as a thank you for a huge project we just released. Edible arrangements are officially my new favorite thing.


It was so delicious! She also sent us a bunch of chocolate covered strawberries (these strawberries were on steroids) and chocolate covered apple balls. The apple balls were out of control. I am no longer going to send flowers to people. Instead I will be sending apple balls.

3. I forgot to mention a couple weeks ago that I got my hurr did. I went to a different salon than normal because I was tired of spending $200+ with less than stellar results. This girl told me about a salon in Kirkland called Haute Philosophy.


I’m in love.


No, I wasn’t driving. I was just trying not to look like that idiot who takes pictures of herself in a parking lot.

Immediately when you walk into the salon, they offer you drinks and snacks… But not just any drinks and snacks. They have Italian sodas, lattes, mochas, and freshly made Otis Spunkmeyer cookies!


Holy yum. It is safe to say that I have finally found my salon. They are super reasonably priced too! That’s just icing on the cake. If you are in the Seattle-ish area and in need of an awesome salon, seriously check them out! First time customers get a free cut with color treatment!!

KS in WA!

In about 5 hours, one of my best friends everrr will be in Seattle!!!! I am so flipping excited! It is my first friend from SD to come and visit. She has never been to Washington before, so we plan on doing lots of fun touristy things.

We have kind of a funny nickname for each other. We call each other KS. It stands for Kindergarten Soulmate. Yep, we have been super close friends since KINDERGARTEN! She is definitely one person I know I can always count on. She is hilarious, sweet, and one heck of a creative person. She gets it from her mama.

Her mom actually invented Puppy Chow and sent in the recipe to Chex. She won $25 for it or something like that. Now, her recipe is featured on every box of Chex cereal. I’ll tell her thank you for you.
