thoughts, lists, and awards

July 13, 2009 in 1/2 Marathon,award,lists,workout

There is so much on my mind on this crazy Monday morning. But it’s been a successful morning thus far! This is my (mostly) lame attempt at coming to grips with life on this beautiful Monday morning.
I woke up really early this morning to go for a run. Got a nice 2 and a half mile run in. It was a great feeling of accomplishment before the rest of the world woke up.

I must get my 101 in 1001 list done today. I’m giving myself a deadline. And it ends tonight!

I’ve been really thinking about all that I have to get done within the next few weeks. So here’s a sort of mini-list:
-find a new/used car.
-look at my 401k.
-visit the bank and make a deposit.
-book a hotel for S&S wedding.
-figure out what I can do for a going away party.

Last but not least! I received an award late last week and have not had a chance to acknowledge it yet! The Fabulous Brunette at Ramblings of a Fab Brunette gave me the MeMe Award! The award is all about the fabulous me! So here are the rules:

1. Share seven tidbits about myself.

2. Share the award with seven blog friends!

About me:

1. I love baking. Cookies, cakes, cupcakes, etc. Love it. But I rarely eat the desserts that I make. I would rather give them away and share them with people.

2. I don’t really eat chocolate. Once in a while (like last night) I’ll eat a little truffle from Godiva, but not very often.

3. I have an obsession with going to the movies. There is something very magical about movie theaters. I love everything! The opening credits, previews, the smell of the most unhealthy buttery popcorn in the world! It’s all amazing. Which is why if you read often you know that I go to the movies about once a week.

4. I am slightly OCD about organizing and organizational products. So I have to planners and I’m always browsing Real Simple magazine for more organization ideas.

5. I’m a huge advocate of power yoga. If you aren’t sure of what power yoga is, visit a previous post here.

6. I’m hosting my first blog giveaway. I’m giving away a monogrammed wine glass from the Preppy Polka Dot. If you haven’t entered yet, you really should.

7. I’m training for my first half marathon. 🙂

Seven fabulous bloggers are now tagged:
1. K13 at Someday I’ll Get There.
2. City Girl at City Girl Lifestyle.
3. Alexa at Cleveland’s a Plum.
4. Dawn at Thoughts From Along the Broken Road.
5. Domestic Goddess.
6. Carolyn at Hang On Little Tomato.
7. Lil Woman at Little Woman, Little Home.

Happy Monday, y’all!

Congrats for training for your first half marathon. I like to tell people, especially fit-looking women like yourself (and like me), that you can do it! In college, I used to run the second half of the Boston Marathon, starting from the half point, Wellesley College, my alma mater. I recommend that you do the same – run in the second half of a marathon… you will get extra cheers and support from people since most will assume that you are running the entire marathon. A little motivational tip. Also, it's just plain fun and I had a lot of great laughs with some girlfriends who ran with me.

If you know anyone who would be interested in my blog, please pass it on. Thanks!
