Thursday Thoughts

  1. Fundraising is hard.  I had two fairly large donations go awry for silly corporate reasons so now I am scrambling to get to my goal. It will happen I just need to reach out to more people.
  2. I have a lot of nervous excitement for my race luckily our trip to France is coming up as well so its been a great distraction.
  3. Speaking of France, my Aunt Lilliana will be joining us for the trip.  Yay for having an extra set of hands to help with the kids.  She has never been so we are excited to have her join us.
  4. My husband has been traveling for work since Wednesday morning so I have been solo with the kids. I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and goldfish for dinner last night and so did the kids #sorrynotsorry
  5. I am thinking cereal tonight.

Happy almost weekend!!

Did you know?

It bothers me when someone takes my spot.  Parking spot.  Spot in the refrigerator at work. Spot on the couch.  It’s mine don’t do it because I will make you move or move your shit out of my way.

When I am running and I’m having a hard time I start doing math.  How many miles do I have left? How long is it going to take me?  How many miles have I done for the week?  I am not that great at math so this entertains/confuses me for quite some time.

I don’t run with music anymore.  It used to be a necessity and then one day I forgot my headphones and that was that.  That DOES NOT include the treadmill. It is a requirement on the treadmill.

I wash my hair everyday,  I guess it’s weird as a woman but I’ve done it all my life and my hair gets greasy and I run a lot.  No amount of dry shampoo can erase a 5 mile run.

I smell like onions when my deodorant stops working.  I’ve started using a natural one and it basically has an 18 hour time limit because when I wake up in the morning – I AM RIPE.

I can fall asleep in less than a minute maybe even 30 seconds.  I have NO problem going to sleep. My husband has a hard time falling asleep so it’s not the greatest combination but #sorrynotsorry

I am terrible with directions in the suburbs but put me in a city and I will figure it out without a problem.

When I was a toddler, my family spent a lot of time in Costa Rica  and when I came back to the States, I refused to speak in English.  I would respond to everyone in Spanish regardless of which language they used.

I learned how to walk at seven months I am very grateful that neither of my children walked that early.

Thanks Life According to Steph for the inspiration!




I am alive..

It’s been over a month since I last posted and I had vowed to myself that I would make time to write. It didn’t happen.  But the truth is I am only a little sad it didn’t happen.  I have a newborn baby and honestly this blog isn’t the most important thing on my plate right now.  That said, I would like to get back in the blog game.  So here are a couple of random Thursday Thoughts all about my Baby Bowen:

1. He excels at pooping when his diaper is off or at least farting. It’s quite unnerving when your changing a diaper and the kid starts farting while you’re in the line of fire staring down the barrel.

2. He is the loudest sleeper. He grunts in his sleep. Hence this post at 5:25 am.

3. He suffers from RBF – Resting Bitch Face. See here:

4. His favorite sleeping position is of course being held, so nap time looks like this:

See why I haven’t posted anything recently?

5. He is a champion at falling asleep in his car seat which I am hoping stays that way.  We don’t drive much but when we do it’s usually far and it will be helpful if I can run with him in the stroller.

Overall he is good baby and for that we are grateful.

Happy Thursday!!
