|Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS.|
Sweet, short, and simple…that’s all I have for you today. Here are the random things I’d like to think aloud about today!
F&$^// Eff! I know you other Bloggers can sympathize with me and my frustration. I had, what I thought, was a really cool post and ALL of a sudden…GONE! Adios! See ya NEVER! My computer was acting wonky, but I never hit the delete button! So, I’m pretty sure it’s gone forever, since I tried to recover it using various ways I found via the Internets. But unless any readers are Blogger savvy, please help a sister out!
Fake Flower Crown // Ever since they’ve become all the rage, I’ve secretly coveted them. I try them on, any chance I get, but I can’t figure out where would be appropriate for me to wear one, so thus I have not bought one. I’ve seen some gorgeous ones, but I just can’t get myself to drop bread on one! First world problems, I know. They are so cute, I think I just need to buy one and rock it!
One Boston Day // I saw this all over social media yesterday and it reminded me it was the 2 year anniversary of the horrible bombing event, that changed the Boston Marathon forever. This day has been dubbed ‘One Boston Day’ and will be recognized as such: ‘April 15th marks the beginning of a new annual Boston tradition: One
Boston Day. This day will be a celebration of the resiliency,
generosity, and strength of the people that make Boston the great city
it is.’ [From the website] In support of this new movement, I wore my #BostonStrong to show my support in California and as a way to pay respects to everyone in Boston and affected by the past events.
Treat Yo Self // I did a lot of this on Tuesday night when I went to the mall. Sales, they get me every. single. time! Half off of the sale price and 10% off for using your Gap card, damn you Gap! The never ending coupons from VS are a trap too! $10 off anything, so of course I need the newest SF Giants collab shirt, thanks! Oh, hey Nordstrom Instagram, yes, I need that tank talking about fries…I’ll run to my local Nordies and cop it! I wish I knew what buyers remorse felt like…
Double Date // Last night we had a double date with Jen & Eric. We chose a diner spot that happened to be celebrating their five year anniversary this week. They are well known for the Dad’s Burger, featured on DDD, and it was on special for $5 last night. Lucky us. Also, J and I got there early enough so we could secure a seat and even made it in time for HH! All around a great Hump Day evening – good friends && good food!
|We got to the restaurant 45 minutes early to save seats, so we watched the game like this!|
|Happy Hour // Mac n Cheese|
|Dad’s Burger & Seasoned Fries|
|Meatloaf Sandwich w/ regular fries|
|Freeport Bakery // Sugar Cookie for dessert|
Co-parenting // As my friends and I have gotten older, I’ve been around this situation, all varying slightly. Some worked and some were/are a struggle. It wasn’t until I started dating J that this was something that I have had to learn about firsthand. Because his situation is exactly that, HIS, I won’t go into details of what he goes through. Just know that I have a litany of things I’d like to write about this, but out of respect for both of them I don’t write my thoughts on the blog. I just hope that when two people are in this situation, they do what is best for the child. I hope they take emotions out of the situation and remember there is a child at the center of it all. I will be the first to point out that I do not have a child of my own and have no direct experience with this, but I think being close to a few of those that have, has given me a decent amount of insight to the topic. I realize it’s hard and I admire those that can co-parent to the best of their abilities, while putting the child first. Bottom line.
Happy Thursday, one day closer to the weekend my friends!
