Three Thing Thursday

1. I did not (x 1000) want to run this morning. Today was no different from any other day but I just didn't feel the urge to lace up my tennie pumps. I snoozed hard the alarm at least 111 times. Finally, I got up about 6:45. I procrastinated--played with my phone, got on the computer, lolly-gaged around the house. Then, I remembered, I ate a brownie with some ice-cream last night at church. Okay Okay, I have to run this morning and out the door I went.
Mile 1-8:33
Mile 2- 8:51
Mile 3- 9:07
Mile 4- 8:50
Average pace- 8:50
NEVER regret lacing your shoes up and hitting the pavement! I feel great now and ready to conquer the day!!

2. After finishing a great run, I was ready to eat. I usually have scrambled egg whites and a banana, a smoothie, or oatmeal for breakfast. Nothing sounded appetizing. I finally settled on this....
-1 cup of coffee brewed straight from my Keurig--man, i love that machine!!
-1 bowl of flavor packed oatmeal (this means with brown sugar, crumbled pecans, a few drizzles of honey, dried cranberries, cinnamon, a scoop of all natural peanut butter, and a few sprinkles of ground flax seed--It turned out to be a pretty good choice if I do say so myself.

3. Two days until my birthday, whoot whoot! Looking forward to a fun weekend!

I recently joined Pinterest and had no idea what I was doing. I am bad about joining something and if it is not self-explanatory then I forget about it. I spent some time browsing Pinterest yesterday and I have figured out it's purpose! Woohoo! It's kinda f-u-n.
fabric idea for kitchen window treatment
 My first pin...Inspiration for my new kitchen window treatments! My wonderful husband is making the boards for me and we are going to wrap the fabric. I have two big windows and two small windows on doors in the kitchen! Any ideas of any other fabrics in the green/red color scheme?

HOW ABOUT THE CAROLINA BASEBALL TEAM?!?! What a run in the 2011 CWS and now we are officially the last team to win at Rosenblat and the first team to win at the new TD Ameritrade Park!! Needless to say, I am one proud Gamecock Alumnus!!!!!
I feel like a fairweather fan because yes, as big of a baseball fan as I am, I fell asleep last night and missed it. It was just as sweet this morning watching the highlights, but not exactly the same. Thank you husband for being considerate and not waking me up, but that was one time that I wouldn't have minded!

In other news, I recently won a giveaway from Christina at Hungry Meets Healthy. I won two boxes of Fiber One Brownie bars. They are delish!! Thanks girl!

The jump rope is missing...husband walked outside with it before I could snap a picture!

This past weekend we went to the husbands 10 year class reunion. It was a small private school with a class of about 40 people. They decided to do a cookout. It was fun meeting some old friends from high school and hanging out with some very close friends that we see all the time! :)
Before we that we are married my mom is no longer around to snap pictures of us every time we go somewhere. (Enter very aggravating self-timer function!)

Hello Flo-town!

Happy Saturday!!!

We are safely back home from the beach after a weeks worth of fun, sun, and some much needed family time with my family! I have been MIA this week just because I needed a break from the computer! I did a lot of sunning, running, eating, drinking, and loving life by the beach this week!

Now, it is on to unpacking, laundry, and cleaning. Oh joy. Tonight we are headed to a cookout for my husbands 10 year class reunion. He went to a small private school and they decided to celebrate with a cookout by the pool!

Tomorrow we are headed to church, then to lunch with the husbands side of the family, and enjoying our Sunday before reality sets in again on Monday!
Wishing today that my laundry room looked like this! How can 2 people dirty up so much stuff?!?!
