Wheeeere did April go? I swear I just saw it on my calendar… I cannot believe today is May 1 already. That means Spring should be coming soon too RIGHT? 🙂 Whenever you’r ready, Wisconsin…
Thanks Amanda (as always) for hosting this beautiful Thursday theme 🙂
1.My sister sent me this super awesome infographic of the history of the marathon. It’s hilarious, accurate, and gave me a great insight as to how this psychotic and incredible event came about 🙂 Check it out!
2. Guys, I think I finally caught the cooking bug. I made stir fry last night, and I have to admit, it was pretty dang delicious.
And added in a TON of vegetables (kitchen-sink style). Cauliflower, green beans, peas, red pepper, brussel sprouts… SO DELICIOUS. Threw some soy sauce and a few more spices…And here’s what I got! I was thoroughly impressed with myself, haha!
3. So my dad has had this life-long dream of having our own chicken coop. He wants eggs, guys. THAT is his reasoning. Anyways, that day has finally come, and tonight we are going to a nearby farm to pick out our own little baby chicks.
We have already picked out names for them (each member of my family gets to name one). My sister picked General Tso, and I have picked Cordon Bleu. (I know, cruuuuuel humor. But all in good fun!) We won’t be eating the chickens, don’t you worry. They will have happy lives just laying eggs for us, and hopefully staying clear from our big moose of a dog, Gus. 🙂
4. Do you ever have those days where you just want to throw your hair up and get it out of your life for a day? Yeah, that’s today for me, and I looove it sometimes. I am one of those girls who 9 times out of 10 has her hair DOWN, but sometimes, psht! I do not want to deal with it.
5. I have a half marathon on Saturday andddddd I haven’t exactly been training the most intense for it… it’s hard to juggle running and Body Pump training, to be honest, but I am confident the run will go well…
I mean, come on. It’s the Wisconsin Cheese Half Marathon. That can ONLY mean good things, RIGHT?
Also, I thought this was freaking hilarious. And reminds me of when my dad, sister and I go on runs around a city when we travel. “It will only be a quick 4-5 miler,” my dad always says… TEN MILES LATER.
What’s new and happy in your life? 🙂 Anyone have runs this weekend like me??
Have any of you ever had chickens? Please tell me my family isn’t crazy… haha!
