I have sat down to blog a few times this week and just ended up staring at the wordless screen. I don’t like forcing blogging – because it shows! – so I just didn’t blog. Hopefully the words will come back soon!
The words were not lacking from the lack of great things that happened this week. It’s been an awesome week that started off with a fantastic birthday and is finishing up with a long weekend and a trail race! Can’t ask for much more than that.
*Cue the Friday Favorites blog post*
Cupcakes aren’t my favorite dessert (see ice cream cake in Sunday’s post), but I just couldn’t pass up on cupcakes on my birthday. Especially mini cupcakes in multiple flavors.
Java is always my favorite, or pretty much anything with a coffee/espresso flavor to it.
But don’t worry… I didn’t do that damage completely on my own. I got to spend my birthday with one of my favorite friends! For the first time in my professional career, I got MLK day off as a holiday and it just happened to fall on my 30th birthday. Chris was gone at school that day, so Kristin and I headed downtown to get pedicures…
…which turned into a day of eating, shopping, and drinking wine… and one of my favorite days ever! You know those days you wake up with no expectations and then they just turn out great, so it’s even better because you weren’t expecting it? Those are my favorite kind of days and this was one of those.
This day might have put a little damper into my running schedule to start the week, but it was most definitely worth it. 30 isn’t so bad after all.
My mom got me new Gore-Tex trail running shoes for Christmas, but with our lack of rain, I didn’t want to waste their waterproofness on the dry dirt. Yesterday it finally started raining (my favorite!) and it’s supposed to rain all weekend. This might mean that my new pretty shoes will get to see some mud in the trail race I am running this weekend.
What are your favorite things from this week?
