Fill in the Blank Friday - it's back!

Yesterday after work I went on another bike ride! My friend Lily is doing the triathlon with me and we met up at the store as soon as she got it to do a ride. Mike, who is a super cyclist and has done tons and tons of century rides and 150 miles rides gave us a little lesson. It's awesome to have all these experienced bikers take their time to teach me like I'm a child and even be patient while doing it. It was a great 5.3 mile ride around a little lake and Mike even said he was impressed with how comfortable I was (maybe because I gave him 5 million warnings about how bad I was....)

Today is faculty relay race day! I'm totally kicking ass and taking names in the egg on a spoon race. 

Fill in the Blank Friday is back! It's from The Little Things We Do - check it out!

1.   What I love most about my home is everything. I'm such a homebody. I love cooking in the kitchen, I love watching TV and blogging in my comfy blue chair, I love my bed, I love looking at the pictures on the walls and remembering all the fun times I had in them. I wish I loved going out more like everyone else my age but it usually just doesn't beat staying home.

2.  I'm excited because,  it's faculty relay race day, it's FRIDAY, I can't wait to go for a trail run with Kara and Lily tomorrow, I get to see my mother AND grandmother for mother's day for the first time in a LONG time, and May is just basically a completely awesome month and I could go on and on. I should just do a whole post describing all the fun I'll have this month.

3.  My preferred method for blowing  off steam when I'm frustrated is   crying is just a given and doesn't really change anything, so usually going for a run. I've actually changed out of my PJs and gone for runs late (for me, like 9:30pm) at night when I've been really mad, and I always feel better. Eric is super lucky that our biggest fight ever took place right before a 14 mile run, he  basically was off the hook by the time I got back. Which is why if I ever can't run, it would really be best to put me in solitary confinement until I can.

4.  Currently I am craving well I won't count chocolate because that's just a constant presence in my life so I'll say breakfast  - it's time! Bring on the Kashi go lean crunch honey almond flax/kashi warm cinnamon heart to heart with almond milk

 Breakfast of champions

5.  The thing I love most about my mom is  another everything. She's my best friend and I wish I could be like her in every way. She's the most selfless person I know and can always think of the perfect thing to do or say to make everyone around her happy. But then she can think of the perfect comment while taking a picture of those special outfits we all see at Walmart. 

6.  If I was going to write a book about my life, the title would be Adventures in Ridiculousness - What it's like to be scared of everything except chocolate and wine

7.  If I were to eat one thing for the rest of eternity it would be well I'm sure we all expect to see chocolate here but to be honest I actually don't crave it in the morning, I know, I know, the shame. Yesterday we even had an ice cream bar for Teacher Appreciation Week (We appreciate you! Now get fat right when bathing suit season starts!) and I didn't partake (ice cream at 11:30 am?? Not for me). The answer would be cereal, the only food I can eat any time of day and never ever ever get sick of. We LOVE cereal in the Lindsey household.
Happy Friday Everyone!


  1. Ice at 11:30am sounds AWESOME. :)

    I am also super excited for's going to be 73 degrees and sunny, i.e. perfect running temp! The local running club here is interested in our run, so we might have a party going on!

  2. Oooh. I love almond milk, too. I am a recent convert.

    "Scared of everything except chocolate and wine"...the perfect subhead :) I was trying to think of one for my blog since the name of it really explains nothing. Hopefully something equally as witty will pop into my head soon.

    Have a great weekend! I can't wait to hear about your run with kara.

  3. Have fun with Kara on your run! It's 22 miles, right?!?!

  4. I'm the same way with running. Sometimes if Mike and I are arguing, he'll ask if I want to go for a run. It's like he's cheating at the fight, but it always works!

  5. yummm kashi go lean crunch and some cold milk. love it.

    pretty sure i could eat chips and salsa every day for the rest of my life.


Thanks for commenting! Comments make me probably more happy than they should.
