Hashtag It

Whew! This week has felt like one huge roller coaster. It started off with my post half-marathon runner’s high and then had a lot of thinking and reflecting going on, plus a bit of stress. Nothing too much to worry about or bore you with, but let’s just say I’m ready for the weekend. I bet you are too. So let’s have some fun with Fun Fact Friday to get the ball rolling already, huh? I thought you would agree!

This week = Twitter hashtag edition. An idea I stole from the lovely Chelsey. Fitting since I got Fun Fact Friday from her as well. We’re kind of incestual with our ideas.

It’s 11/11/11, which means Braedon is now ten months old. What happened to this little bundle?

I refuse to accept that he will be a year old in two months. I also refuse to accept he will be walking soon. #herecomestrouble

A teenage girl store clerk told me that it would have been “SO cool” if I stayed pregnant “a little longer” to have had B on 11/11/11 instead of 1/11/11. She clearly needs another visit to Health class. #kidsthesedays

I cannot wait for my next half marathon. The Zooma Atlanta Half in two weeks! In fact, I wish I could run a fun race every other weekend. #soaddicted

Not only for the fact I love the experience, but wearing race t-shirts makes me feel like a cool kid. I’ve been wearing my race shirts all week. #irunfortheshirt

On a completely different note, I take my personal training certification exam tomorrow. Which means I have been studying my butt off this week.

Even though I know that I know the material, I still get more than slightly nervous when in a testing environment. #thankgodformultiplechoice #wishmeluck

I sent Peter grocery shopping for me earlier this week. Normally, that decision doesn’t end too well. This time, it did. He brought these home for me.


Gingerbread pita chips. And they are divine. #musthaveselfcontrol

For some reason, I have gone into total sap mode recently. I am completely sucked into this book…


…and badly want to see this movie.


As it turns out, they are making a movie out of the Nicholas Sparks book too. I will probably end up seeing that one too. #canthelpmyself

I know the winner for the SHAPE and Fiber One fitness package. #drumrollplease

#215 – Diana @ Bubbly & Buttercup


Congrats, girl! Email me to claim your prize. Open-mouthed smile

It’s time for the weekend!!! Have a great one! #helpmestopfreakingout

Never Have I Ever

Morning! And happy Friday! It’s that time of the week again. Fun Fact Friday! This week, I decided to follow the inspiration I got from Michelle @ Crazy Running Legs and complete a “Never Have I Ever” list.

Never Have I Ever…

Eaten at a fancy-pants, five-course, deck-yourself-out restaurant.


Not that I would complain if I had the chance.

And on that same note…never have I ever eaten at a Whole Foods Hot Bar. It always looks really good, but if I’m just too cheap to eat at a high end restaurant, you better believe I’m too cheap for an expensive buffet.

Never have I ever…cheered on the Florida Gators. And that won’t be changing this weekend. Go Dawgs!!!

It Really IS The Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party!

Never have I ever…traveled west of the Mississippi River. I’ve traveled to more foreign countries than US States. #sadbuttrue

Never have I ever…driven a stick shift. I have a hard enough time driving an automatic. I don’t need to occupy my mind with anything else!

Never have I ever…cared for history. It bores me greatly. Although traveling and seeing artifacts/old architecture/etc doesn’t!

Never have I ever…felt fully recovered from my past eating struggles.

Never have I ever…signed up for Pinterest.

I’m holding out with all my might because the last thing I need is another online time suck. I feel my willpower waning more and more as each day passes.

Never have I ever…been able to do a split. Even during 14 years of gymnastics and cheerleading while growing up.

Never have I ever…wanted more than two kids.

I feel perfectly happy with my family just how it is. Here’s hoping God doesn’t have other plans. Winking smile 

Speaking of God…never have I ever understood how He can love so completely and so unconditionally. But, I’m glad He does because it has truly turned my life around.

Never have I ever…seen a Star Wars movie. Nor do I have the desire.

Never have I ever…worn underwear. Just checking if you’re still with me.

Never have I ever…broken a bone. Even after getting hit by a car.

Never have I ever…ridden on a motorcycle, despite the fact Peter owns one and used to ride quite frequently.

Never have I ever…gotten a speeding ticket. Surprising because I tend to have a lead foot. And now my next post will likely be all about me getting my first speeding ticket. I seem to have that kind of luck.

Never have I ever…been skinny dipping. Er, wait. Done that. Who me?

Oh. You’re still paying attention? Dang.

Never have I ever…done anything like bungee jumping, sky diving, or jumping off a cliff. I have always wanted to do something daring, but wonder if I will have the cajones to actually pull the trigger.

Never have I ever…taken Makenzie to Disney World.


And I CANNOT WAIT for that day to come. I think I will be more excited than her!

Never have I ever…liked strawberry ice cream.

Never have I ever…realized I have so many “never have I ever”s. Apparently, I need to get out more! And stop now before I bore you to tears. Happy Friday!

  • Hope you will play along! What’s a “Never Have I Ever…” of yours?

It’s kind of funny. I become a certified personal trainer and the first workouts I turn to this week come from someone else. The book came in for me at the library last week and, after flipping through it, I couldn’t wait to give the circuits a go. Making The Cut includes a lot of […]
