It's not too often I regret NOT taking shots. In fact, it's usually solidly the other way around. But it happened. I declined all shots on Saturday night. I wish I could claim it was to be responsible, but it was actually just because the combo of hard cider and massive amounts of candy was so sweet (even for me) that I needed a break.
So then Sunday, I figured I was golden with running. Nope. I ran a watchless 5 miler that I'm ashamed to admit included walking breaks.
Will I EVER have a good run again? Just wondering. If so, my 30 for 30 in two days would really be a great time to start. I'll admit that running in the hottest part of the day, after a hard race, hydrating with only hot coffee for hours beforehand isn't a total recipe for success, but still.
What I really need to do is nail down a training plan, or at least plan out my runs, because just deciding distance day to day doesn't really work for a slacker like me.
My birthday is June 19, so I declare the entire rest of the month dedicated to celebrating. We kicked things off last night. Eric and I have always wanted to do one of those murder mystery dinner thingies, and he surprised me with a Groupon to one!
We just realized Thursday night that we would be able to go, and you were supposed to dress in 20s attire, so it was a scramble to put an outfit together! My first thought was Pinterest, and they had fabulous ways to create a flapper dress yourself. Then I remembered that
a. I hate going to actual stores
b. I'm not crafty
c. I had plans all weekend and no time
d. Even if I did have time, I'm too lazy
So I posted a dress I already owned on my blog, people commented that it would work, my BFF Casi had a headband I could borrow, and that was that. My hair literally took like 4 seconds - I google imaged "flapper", and did two pigtail/bun things.We got tons of compliments on our outfits!
|They wanted $20 for this picture....yeah no.|
|SEXY. The weird part is I found myself smiling for this picture.|
Sadly, Eric wasn't the killer, nor did we guess correctly.
So I know I already went out on a limb with new foods and tried chicken wings this weekend, but I took it a step farther. I decided to really get crazy and try a new kind of ice cream.
What's a food that you don't think can possibly be improved? I also feel this way about Doritos. Cool Ranch? No thanks. You nailed it with the original cheesy flavor, so now just stop.
