Friday Favorites and Funnies (6-12)

Oh my LORD - It's here, we made it - Let's rejoice!!! 

This week has been jam packed - but I am still floating. It's a wonderful thing. 

For the first time since the start of my June Goals (6/2/15) - I did not run this morning. And I have two really good excuses.

1) I stayed up late finishing "You" by Caroline Kepnes - I was 95% done with the book at the 20 minute mark and I had to just push through! I loved this book so much that it scares me!

2) We got back from our Hapkido testing around 9pm - and that would be my fourth consecutive night at the dojang, and the third night training/testing. Little sore. 

I am going to try to run during lunch. But, we'll see how much work comes at me today.

Really quick Let's talk about my Favorites of the Week

Yes, you read that right - Free Starbucks. How? Who? What? When? Well this is a brandy new favorite - because my new boss just sent out a mass email to the department, that she is getting all of us whatever we want from Starbucks. I opened my email to find that amazing gift, and I literally did this:!.gif 

Come to me Caramel Crunch Frap!!!! Mama needs you!

I am super committed to not running more than 20 minutes a (work) day, but, as I get more comfortable - I start trying to see how far I can go in that time limit. Yesterdays run, I finally got within fingers grasps of a 10 minute mile. I want to share so - Let me show you my stats thus far:

If you remember - I was starting to push into the 9:45min/mile, before I injured my foot, and then gave up on running (stupid winter, stupid depression). So, yesterday, when I finally got close - I jumped (in my mind, I was on a treadmill, and would have flown off of it). And I need to note, that I walk twice during this 20 minutes, for 45 seconds. I do mini sprints during minutes 8-10. I feel great, and I am so glad to see my body responding. 


Does anyone watch this show? Or has anyone read these books? Last season I found sort of boring, but this season - I just can't skip an episode. And dragons, come on, drag-freaking-ons. But, I need to note (SPOILER ALERT) when they burned Stannis' daughter, I was yelling at the screen. That beyotch Melisandre needs to go. 


I mentioned above that I finished "You" - and now I get to just go through the list I have and pick a new book... Thinking Bird Box - I don't know, I'm just excited to download another book. Call me a Kindle Convert - Technology is bringing me over to the dark side.  

And now for the funnies!  


  1. I still haven't seen Game of Thrones! I feel like the only person on Earth who hasn't watched that show!

  2. Congrats on your running accomplishments - that's really awesome! Hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I have had You on my list to read for awhile now and I keep meaning to get around to it. Congrats on your running!!! You are rocking it. I think I am going to be an hour late on Monday too hahahah! Have a great weekend!

  4. My husband has read the Game of Throne books and seen a couple seasons of the show. I haven't been interested in doing either! I have a kindle but hate reading on it. I love the feel of reading with a book in my hands. The kindle is usually only used for reading when I'm travelling. Umm, I looked up the reviews for You and I'm both intrigued and a bit afraid! I just put it on hold at the library!

  5. I do not watch Game of Thrones but it's all everyone is talking about today so I'm assuming something important or gross happened.

    Congrats on the running! And You is such a good book. One of my favorites of the year. Definitely worth spending extra reading time on it.

  6. Yay for running faster - great progress!

    Hope this is another good week!
