It's WEDNESDAY you guys!!
My birthday is on Friday. Just two more days!! I'll be 27.
SHEESH dunno where that number came from.
Going out to dinner with my hubs to a wine bar we love! He's already given me most of my birthday gifts too :)
He got me some Brooks running shoes (Pure Cadence 2, blue) and a big ol turvis cup I've been wanting because I needed a bigger water cup!
This thing holds 24 ounces! 3 cups! I've already had 3 today and it's not even noon. Holla! Doing its job. (and also making me pee every 20 minutes. whatevs)
And he got me a pack of colored turvis straws to go with it. It's pretty, has travel scenes on it.
There's something else he's got up his sleeve too. I have my suspicions, but I'm keeping them to myself. I'll have to wait until Friday!
Anyway on Sunday we had a 5 mile run on my half marathon training schedule. We did so good!!
It's crazy how this happened--because we waited until after dark to start because I DID NOT want to get off the couch. I was literally dreading it. Debated putting it off until later in the week. Then once we started I was so happy we were out there. Like, so happy. It was kind of "easy."
Last Sunday we did 4.18 miles in 1 hr 9 minutes
This Sunday we did 5.08 in 1 hr 15 minutes.
See what we did there?!?? ikr?
We added on another mile and it only took us 6 minutes longer.
I was pumped, for real. Ha, that face ^ probably tells you that though. Kind of can't wait until next week's run now. (BTW we take walk breaks…) It's just a 2.5 mile run on Sunday but I'm excited to do it in my new brooks!!
I put up my Christmas tree last night. This weekend is PACKED with birthday celebrations, and next week we'll be gone for all of Thanksgiving, so I wanted to go ahead and get it put up! (My 10k is next Saturday in my hometown, we'll be gone Thursday-Saturday)
I got BJ this ornament :)
My man loves sushi. Me? I love these veggie straw things that taste like they're bad for you:
But there wasn't a veggie straw ornament at hoblob. Go figure.
A serving is 38 straws. THIRTY EIGHT. For 130 calories. It's been my favorite snack this week. A huge bag is $4.98 at my walmart.
Lastly, here's my new rug! Got it 50% off at hobby lobby. I can't pass up an owl wearing mittens and a t-bog. :)
It's my favorite time of year. And my husband will be home this year for all of the holidays!! This year has really flown by. Anyway, thanks for reading. Hope y'all have a great week and that we all survive until 5 pm Friday. Laters.
