5 things

Sorry I haven't posted a lot this month. I don't know why. Or I kind of do know why but don't really know what's gotten into me. I do care a lot about my blog, and I love having it and connecting with people through it. I love posting on it and hearing your comments, but in the last two weeks I've been more interested in reading other blogs or enjoying down time than posting anything myself.

It's not that I don't have anything to say...I'm sure I could come up with something. I have ideas from time to time of what I want to say, but I just haven't followed through with them a lot. So, to jumpstart my posting...here's 5 really random things.

I was just thinking yesterday about how 8 short months ago I couldn't get up and run one quarter of a mile without falling over sideways in agony. And now, I go out on Saturdays or Sundays and run 10+ miles on a regular basis. 

If you're trying to get into running, just do the couch to 5k plan. Seriously. Start tomorrow. It's slow, it takes time, but it's so worth it. The feeling of accomplishment when you run your first 30 minutes straight into your first hour, half marathon, etc. are so worth it. Just trust me?

2. kate spade iphone case
I bought this one on Monday...after the 30% off sale...because I forgot about the sale when it was going on. Isn't that the worst? Luckily I still got 15% off.

3. day off
I'm taking the day off of work on Friday to head down to Naples to go to a wedding at the Ritz Carlton Naples. I'm pretty thrilled, because it'll be a wonderful wedding. It'll also be a perfectly relaxing weekend to enjoy time with Tim. He's been working so so much and doing so so much school work, and I miss him.

4. grocery stores and cooking dinner
I still hate them. I wrote a blog post about grocery shopping a long long time ago when I first started this blog, and it makes me laugh. I like to cook when I have time, but a lot of times lately I have wanted to do anything but make a grocery list for the week or cook dinner each night. I saw this on pinterest today when I was looking for easy dinner recipes, and it fit my thoughts perfectly. I definitely get into bed each night thinking this...


5. Wedding Planning
I have done quite a lot on this front without updating you all. I'm sending out engagement party invitations tomorrow, and once I'm sure everyone that reads this has gotten them, I'll post them on here. I'm so pleased with them, and the eggplant color matches the color of the envelopes that I ordered off of etsy perfectly. It was like they were meant to be together. We have a few other things pieced together, but I'll wait to post until I have more time to devote.

How are things going with you? 
Is this post entirely too random?
It's the best I've got right now.

So so excited for you that you can do 10+ miles at once!! What an accomplishment.

Can't wait to catch a glimpse of your engagement party announcements. Glad things are coming together.

Random posts are my fave! :)

I really need to get back on track with C25K. I have the app and started it, but quit for whatever reason.

Love the iPhone case you picked. Polka dots are my fave. :)
