    Five Things Friday – ACA-scue me?!

    Today more than ever, do I need to remind myself of happiness… Thanks, Clare! Too many thoughts swirling around my head without the perfect forum to verbalize them. Maybe I need a journal, maybe I should blog it…I’m just a little lost today. So, it’s the perfect time to remind myself of things that make me happy! 5 Things Making Me Happy 1. Pitch Perfect 2 – No, not deja vu, I wrote about this yesterday. But I’m a changed woman! I saw the movie last night, ACA-awesomely it wasn’t crowded in the theater! The crew behind us was hilarious, they used a whoopee cushion on one of their friends…

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve linked up with Clare, so here goes nothin’… I literally did it exactly as she does these posts – like a true copy cat!

    Five Things Friday – Be Happy!

    Smiling…for no reason! Thanks, Clare! Not that it should be a bad thing, but I’m in a great mood today. I guess, sometimes I feel bad for being so happy and content with my life. There are so many ugly things happening, in addition to hurt and pain, and I’m sitting here smiling at what I have and what surrounds me. So today, I will only post 5 Things That Are Making Me Happy and keep it to just that: 1. National Sibling Day — Today is that day. If you’ve been around these parts at all, then it’s not really important that I remind you how amazing it is…

    Five Things (Finally It’s) Friday

    Oh hey Friday the 13th! Thanks, Clare! I was going to attempt to do what Clare does each week, but since I always share my life instantly, I don’t have much stuff saved up for FTF’s post. Also, I’m kinda in a writing rut. I know I just need to do a free write, but I haven’t had a post to do so. I know it’s my blog, but I tend to stick to the same schedule, for lack of a better word. Next week, I intend on doing a free write on one of the things I am most self conscious about, stay tuned! Since you already know my…

    5 Surprises (not Things) Friday!

    I love surprises! Thanks, Clare! I’m just not that great with receiving them, even though I love getting them. I wouldn’t say I’m full Type-A material, but I think I am on the cups of Type-A and B. That being said, I like to know the details, the plan, and to think of back-ups as needed. And my intuition is pretty, I mean really, good. I normally pick up on surprises well before they happen. Kudos to J and his accomplices, I was astonished, surprised, and am still smiling from ear to year. Sometimes you need to let others take the wheel and be surprised! Technically he only had four…

    Five Things Friday – Like It’s Supposed to Be

    “Go take a Napa, you don’t move to Napa!” Thanks, Clare! Guess that movie? Obviously, if you don’t get it, then maybe we aren’t that good of friends! HAHA, just kidding, of course. Mr. Big, always breaking Carrie’s heart! I digress. I’m excited to get out of town this weekend and enjoy Napa, enjoy it so much I’m even going to run through 26.2 miles of it – well that’s the plan anyways! But you already know this so I’m going to keep it simple and follow Clare’s style for Five Things Friday! Five Things I Ate: 1. La Fiesta Cheese Enchiladas – these have been my go to during…

    Five Things Friday – 2 Weeks Until Napa

    …Marathon that is… Thanks, Clare! 2 weeks doesn’t sound like a long time…cause it isn’t! So thus, this post is dedicated to the 5 random thoughts going through my head as I prepare for the Napa Valley Marathon on March 1st. Or I should really say, my lack of preparation for the marathon… F@&% – What the hell am I really doing? Oh I know, just doing my long runs. While also running very, very sporadically during the week. So sporadic, it’s almost non-existent. I know I will finish all 26.2 miles, but how fast and effortlessly is another question. I envision some walking will be involved, even though it…

    Happy Flat Tire Friday…Whomp! Whomp! Not even a month old and one tire already needs to be fixed. Ah well, something so minor won’t ruin my Friday or weekend! Big fun things this weekend, can’t wait 🙂 Thanks, Clare! 5 Things That Made Me Smile This Week: 1. This…just this… 2. Actually doing some weekly miles for Napa & SLO Marathons! 3.

    Five Things Friday – Friday Faves

    Faves > Random… Thanks, Clare! I’m gonna change it up a bit this week. I’m going to list 5 things that are currently my fave, not just five random things that I feel like writing about. Technically, I guess they are one in the same, I just wanted to pretend I was doing something a little different! We Made Too Much // I’ve mentioned this little slice of Heaven before, but in case you don’t know Lulu has a “sale” section. They are so boughie, they won’t even call it their sale section. HAHA! Anywho, ever since I’ve downloaded the app, I check that section ever. single. day! I justify…

    Five Things Friday – No More Hiatus

    Five R-A-N-D-O-M things floating around this brain of mine today… Thanks, Clare! 5. Bacon Week // It has been all week and I finally took advantage of it, two days in a row, I might add. I will not spoil my next WIAW post with showing you what I ate. Just know that it was all pretty much as amazing as you would imagine. Even a dessert with bacon. Bacon and ice cream, two things I didn’t think I’d enjoy together, found a way into my heart this week! I’m sure I’ll have a bacon hangover soon, but for now I’m on a mission to consume copious amounts of that…
