|I had to cut my run short for a variety of reasons. This displeased|
|Sunday pampering is always nice.|
|Post-pampering. Happy Meg.|
|It was National Ice Cream Day, so of course I celebrated.|
|Scheduled my exam time. Freaked out a few days later and|
moved it to Friday the 31st.
|Tea and intrigue (Game of Thrones).|
|Ha! Found this on Instagram, had to steal it.|
|Pre-workout selfie in Matt's gym. He converted his garage,|
and did an amazing job, all on his own.
|The state of my brain these days.|
|Monday marked the five-year anniversary of THIS awesome|
|This made me laugh so hard at the absurdity. Never, ever|
push a client!
|Posted without a filter, hence the non-square shape saved|
on my camera roll. It was a glorious morning.
|Sun coming up over the golf course.|
|My new home. :)|
|Minor freak-out about the new job, the test date, etc. etc.|
|When in doubt, foam roll. With Game of Thrones.|
|For a few weeks now, Matt has been meaning to give me some|
of his favorite tea (from a Middle Eastern market) to try.
We both finally remembered this week, so I had to brew it
|I made it super-strong, which was okay, but I found I prefer|
|The eyebrows are 'Shopped, but it's still too adorable not|
|I did not message him. What's hilarious is that just that morning|
during my workout, I was lamenting to Matt (trainer, friend,
therapist), that so many guys are looking for "princesses" and...
I'm so not a princess.
|100% of my friends and family agree: The corn did.|
|Online dating is weird.|
|So instead of dating, I take pictures of Mom's garden.|
|Short run, but I finished it by doing some agility training|
(up, up, down, down, up, up...On. Every. Single. Step.) so
it's all good.
|Cute new top is cute.|
|So, turns out Downtown Dixon is kind of cute.|
|They have a terrific little antique shop.|
|And the best tea place Summer and I have found yet. It's|
one of our favorites because it's kinda-sorta halfway for
both of us, and they have great food, great service, great
atmosphere. I bought some caramel tea. :)
|The Royal Tea: Soup (zucchini), salad, sandwiches, scone,|
desserts. Pot of tea. All of it delicious.
|And so pretty.|
|They sell Unicorn Farts lip balm, too.|
|Tried the "fad" flavor. It was...not so good.|
|Notes. The Brick (the book). Tea. Water. Nearby bathroom.|
|When the race bib matches your shoes.|
|My third year running this one.|
|Running for a friend and her father, who is in advanced|
stages of Alzheimer's.
|Pre-race deep squat. My legs felt good.|
|Great first mile. Okay second mile. Terrible third mile. But|
I got an oatmeal cookie, so all was right in my world.
|Big Jim Hall, local radio personality.|
|Found out on Friday that my great-grandmother is buried at|
East Lawn, where the race starts and ends. I stuck around
after to inquire about where she is buried.
|Found her! According to Mom, my Grandma Bean (Mom's|
mom) spoke fondly of her mother--Ruth was kind, but also
had a temper when riled. "Like me!" I said. Mom just laughed.
|It's a peaceful place to rest. I introduced myself to her and told|
her that her daughter Edna was a wonderful grandma to me.
|Mom, Dad and I went out for Thai food.|
|I had Yellow Curry (chicken) and it was marvelous.|
