Friday housekeeping

No I don't mean I am cleaning myself, infact that idea is funny. Ask my husband I am not much of a house cleaner. :)  I just have a bunch of random thoughts today - so bullet points to the resuce.

  • Weekly Weigh In - down 1lb
  • Life As I See It [Fitness, Health and Happiness]I got my run in last night 4 miles, warm up, 2x1600 @12:10 w/ 800 jogs and a cool down. It was tough but I hung in there on the 1600 and completed them both under 12:10.
  • I am so happy the today is a rest day! My body needs it.
  • Like Run with Jess on Facebook and when she reaches 200 followers she will have a giveaway.  Feel free to tell her I sent you over.  I don't get anything for the referral - just being nice
  • Run with Jess is also hosting a Spin Challenge in August. Check it out here.
  • Participate in Blog Hop Friday  - its a lot of fun to find new bloggers, just click on the on the side.
  • Washington has a law that you are not supposed to talk on your cell phone will driving unless you are using a headset. Well yesterday I noticed that I didn't have my wallet and that I had left it in my husbands car. As luck would have it his wallet was in my car. I pulled my phone out to call him sans headset and I ended up getting pulled over and getting a $124 dollar ticket. They guy could have ticketed me for not having my ID, but just gave me the cell phone ticket!  Note to self - put phone on speaker phone when driving in the car and talking on the phone.
  • 4 years ago to this day I was on modified bed rest. Well I was supposed to be on bed rest but I also had a bridesmaid dress to get fitted for.  It was actually pretty comical getting fitted for a wedding I was going to be in 3 weeks postpartum at 38 weeks pregnant. I ended up having to be sewed into my dress on the day of the wedding to keep it from falling down. My baby girl turns 4 years old tomorrow.  Tomorrow will be spent celebrating her birthday her way.
  •  Lastly one of the winners of the Gotien never claimed there prize. So it is up for grabs. The first person to comment that they want it - its yours.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. For everyone racing I hope the weather cooperates where ever you may be racing.  What are your plans for the weekend?


  1. The ticket for talking on a cell phone while driving in this country is closer to 800 USD. Glad you got off with a ticket and not an accident. Congratulations on your little one's birthday and your first four years of mommydom.

  2. Congratulations on your weight loss! :-) And Happy Birthday to your little one! I have one turning 4 soon and I just can't believe it...

    (PS I'm a new follower from Fitness Friday!) I thought I already followed you, but I am definitely now! Have a great weekend!

  3. Ahh I have a 4 1/2 year old and I just love this age! Happy Birthday to yours!

    Sounds like you had a great week and good job for doing so much!


  4. Congrats on your baby's birthday! Hope you have a fun weekend celebrating her. Thx for the shout-outs! If no one wants the Gotein, I'll always take it. I love the stuff after long runs...

  5. I've never tried Gotein, I'd love to try it if Jess will share...

  6. Wow..lots of birthday kids today in blogworld! Happy Birthday to your little one. :)

  7. Sorry for the ticket, that's a serious bummer. Happy birthday to your little one, four is such a fun age!

  8. So sorry about the ticket! And happy birthday to your little girl!

  9. I'm not much of a house cleaner either :)

    Happy birthday to your daughter. Sorry about the ticket. Now I can't remember if we can use cell phones while driving in Ohio. Note to self: find out.

    Weekend plans? Errands and a 12 mile run. More importantly, time with my kids who just came home after visiting grandparents for 10 days.

    Have a great weekend!

    Life…as I see it [Fitness, Health and Happiness]

  10. Happy Birthday to your little one!

  11. Ticket for not calling handsfree is much more expensive here. I never use my phone in my car. I just let it ring and people can leave a message. I don't drive that long distances so don't use a headset.
