Happy Friday! I got this post idea from Kim at Racing Bananas and thought it would be fun one for a Friday.
Grasping at Eternity (Kindrily #1) by Karen Amanda Hooper… I love YA books. I always have, but since my sister-in-law Jenna started her amazing blog, I have been an even bigger fan. I’ve had this one on my Kindle app for awhile, and I’ve finally started reading it. And fun fact, since my sister-in-law is friends with the author who is local, I’ve actually had the pleasure of having lunch with them! Another perk of having a sister-in-law who blogs about books.
I love the new Katy Perry song Roar. It’s fabulous and a real mood booster. It’s such a catchy song and I have been lured in by her lyrics before, especially with Wide Awake. Roar is fabulous. It’s also currently the ringtone on my phone, proof of how much I love the song.
Current guilty pleasure:
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Every year, I live for the day they come out. And when they do, I have too many too soon and then decide I need to cut back. I’m not there yet, I probably will be in another week or so. I get mine with soy milk, no whipped cream. It’s still high in points but Oh. So. Good.
Water is my go-to drink, and what I drink the most of every day. I usually drink it plain, if I add anything it’s just lemon. Now if we’re talking favorite drink when hubby and I are out enjoying wings? The answer would be beer. Ice cold beer.
The last few weeks we’ve had breakfast for dinner quite a few times. Eggs, ham, maybe hash browns, and maybe toast. I love eggs and could eat them all the time so it’s never a stretch to have them often. It’s also easy to make and during the week, I am all about making meals that don’t take much effort.
I love The Little Couple and Who Do You Think You Are? We also watch Bar Rescue and I’ll admit it, The Real Housewives of New Jersey OR Orange County. But not Miami, I don’t like that one. Those housewives are a train wreck and I just can’t look away. Also recently, I have gotten sucked into Grey’s Anatomy. I don’t seem to watch shows when they’re all the rage so clearly I am way behind on this one and I’m sure I’m not catching them in order. I really want to watch Orange Is The New Black, it’s already in my Netflix My List.
Current wish list:
A new pair of Brooks Glycerin 10 running shoes and a handful of race entries. I hope I can swing the races I have planned for the fall and it would be fabulous to have new shoes to run them in.
Running. I’ve been running a pretty consistent pace for awhile now and it makes me feel like I am doing something right. I am enjoying the structure of my half marathon training. It’s not necessarily my goal to run faster, but to be able to run longer and better.
Three blogs that I love are:
- Racing Bananas – I just recently found this blog and it turns out Kim and I have a lot in common!
- Words To Run By – Sara is wonderful and is very open in her blog.
- Orangespoken – I know Steph personally and she is so awesome. Her blog will make you laugh out loud at times.
I *need* for the weather to cool off. I *need* for it to not be so humid. I long for the nice fall days I know we will have at some point. I just wish we didn’t have to wait for so long.
I love, love, love my iPad Mini. It’s very high on the list of the coolest things I‘ve ever bought for myself. I can read on it, catch up on blogs, play time-wasting games, watch Netflix, and more.
I’m totally stealing this from Kim at Racing Bananas but my running or yoga clothes. They’re so comfy and I would wear them every day if I could.
I am pretty excited to attend FLBlogCon again this year, this time with hubby. I enjoyed it so much last year and met new people. This year has been so different for my blogging, it’s grown so much, and I am excited to meet even more new people and learn even more for this little piece of internet that I love and put so much into.
I am tired and worn out. It’s been a stressful week with our dog Blue having surgery and he has 10-14 days healing time before his stitches come out, so it will be stressful until then.
What are you currently enjoying? I hope you’ll share!
