How Rude

You guys, someone stole my 13.1 magnet off the back of my car! I realized it last night after work when I was walking out to it, and I was so sad.  Also kind of annoyed, because now all you can see is an oval-shaped dirt spot on my car.  Waaaah.  I also realize some people think those magnets are stupid and pretentious, but I really liked mine!

Anyway, last night I took a yoga class for the first time since before I moved to VA and it was great.  I think I need to end every Monday with yoga from now on because I was so relaxed and noodley at the end of it.  It was a 50 minutes Ashtanga class which really left my hamstrings stretched and shoulders burning from all the down dog.  I wore the work out top I posted about yesterday, and loved it because I could bend and twist without worrying about whether I was a giant mess of fat rolls.

I don’t mean this to sound as narcissistic as it probably will, but I generally like yoga because I remain pretty decent at it no matter how long it’s been since my last class.  Despite the fact that it’s been YEARS since I stepped foot in a gymnastics class, I still have a good amount of flexibility in me, and it feels good to really settle into poses.  I’m definitely sore today, especially in the hamstrings, shoulders, and lower back, and I have the typical hip bone bruises from bow, but it feels good.

I wanted to take spin today at lunch, but I just realized I have a meeting at 1 and spin ends at 12:45.  I don’t think I can shower and make it to the meeting on time, blah.  There’s a 5:00 class, but I was hoping to go grocery shopping after work, stupid meetings getting in the way of my work outs.  Would it be inappropriate to ask my boss to move our meeting so I can go to spin?   Haha.

If you’ve noticed, there’s been no mention here about house news.  That’s because WE ARE STILL WAITING. After five days of no response, Dar and I decided to submit an amended offer about $5000 higher than our original.  That went in on Saturday morning, and we decided if we still haven’t heard anything by Wednesday we’re moving on because clearly these people are assholes who suck.  Do you sense my frustration?

In other news, I leave for Vegas in exactly one month for my bff’s bachelorette party! Then Darren arrives on April 20 for a visit, and two weeks after that some of the coolest bloggers around are heading to DC for an epic girls weekend.  I AM SO EXCITED FOR ALL THE THINGS.  April is going to be awesome.  The end.

Exciting Things

Yesterday I started countdowns of all the things I’m looking forward to in the upcoming weeks and months.  I like countdowns, it makes me happy knowing exactly how many days stand between me and something exciting.  Plus I’m kind of OCD and have a weird obsession with needing to know exactly how many days there are until something happens.

  • Cherry Blossom 10 Miler: 12 days
  • NYC Weekend with some crazies: 24 days
  • Home for Easter: 31 days
  • Darren comes to visit: 37 days
  • Chicago Part 2: 86 days
  • My 26th Birthday: 118 days
  • Weekend at Dani’s beach house: 121 days
  • Vacation in JAMAICA!: 263 days

Yup that’s right, come December I will be spending 7 glorious days relaxing on the sandy beaches of Jamaica at an all-inclusive resort.  To say I am thrilled would be an understatement.  I’m not exactly wishing the months away though, because as you can see there are lots of fun things to look forward to between now and then, but getting back to the Caribbean (I went on a cruise in Jan 2009) will be amazing.


cannot wait!


Last night at the gym I did a quick 2 miles on the treadmill (about an 8:50 pace), and then 2 more on the elliptical.  My training plan said 4 miles, but my calves are really sore from Saturday still, so I just shook them out a little on both.  Still pretty sore today, but I have one of my final speed workouts to get in (4×1 mile at 8:15 pace) so I may be running through some of the tightness.

Last night one of my favorite guilty pleasures was on, Betheny Ever After, and she never fails to crack me up.  Last night?  Donating sexy lingerie to the church.  Because they’ll have use for bustiers and t-strings, haha.  Alright well I’m off to my monthly 2 hour staff meeting, so leave interesting comments so I’m amused!  Laterrrrr.
