The weekend is coming to an end and I’m pretty excited!!  Anyone else as excited as I am??  I’ve also been excited by some other things lately, and I would like to share those with you. now.

1.) My new Mac book air!  Holy crap it’s nice having a computer that goes at a relatively normal pace.  Okay, I’ll admit it, I like my computers like I like the cars to drive around me on the freeway….FAST!  When things don’t go fast mama gets angry, but that’s not the case with this little gem. Thanks Apple, you da best!


2.)  My Nikon 3300.  You may have noticed that the quality of my photos has improved (and if not well then that’s awkward).  It is definitely NOT because my skills have gotten better, it is all due to my amazing new image capturing device, and for that I am STOKED!  I mean obviously I want to become a better photographer, but if improved technology can eliminate the learning process well then bully!


3.) Sasquatch 2015.  Oh. My. I’m so excited for all the bands playing at Samsquantch this year!  I haven’t been since they made the change from single day tickets to all weekend tickets….it was kind of a principal thing; however, I now realize if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.  Hey I’m not afraid to admit when I was overly opinionated on something (e.g. Uggs in the year 2006), and would like to change my mind.


4.) Our trip to Salish, it was so amazingly relaxing.  Definitely a treat.

5.) My Fitbit Charge.  Can I just tell you how cool the sleep aspect of this thing is?  I’m amazingly restless throughout the night, there’s pretty much nothing I can do about it, but I guess it’s cool to know.


6.) Yumbox.  After visiting Japan Dave and I realized our love for having our food divided into separate compartments (yes, I’m highly concerned for what this might mean for our children).  When I found the yumbox on pinterest I immediately clicked purchase with very little thought, and I’m happy I did.


7.) Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies.  Okay, you haven’t lived until you have tried speculoos!!!  Well, as of late, TJ’s has been amping up the speculoos game and selling it in a variety of forms.  They have chocolate speculoos cups/bars and speculoos ice cream.  The other day Dave and I saw these little suckers, and just died from how delicious they are!  I feel like if Trader Joe’s ever falls on hard times, they could probably get by just selling speculoos products!


8.) Aerial yoga.  As I mentioned in a previous post, Dave and I took an aerial yoga class and it was phenomenal.  I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend that you check out the studio in Fremont.  I’m already looking into purchasing the ten class pass.

9.) Half marathon training.  My runs have been feeling pretty great lately (I feel like there’s this difficult hump that you have to get over in the beginning with running), so I’m really stoked to amp up the miles and get to 13.1!!!  Really hoping that my performance will live up to the name of the half, Negative Splits.


Now I want to share with you a bit about my training this last week.  Some were hard, some I didn’t want to do, but in the end I’m glad I did them!

Friday: 2 mile run with a big elevation gain (down to the falls and back), can’t believe those hills!

Saturday: Aerial Yoga

Sunday: 5 miles 10:30 pace

Monday: Hot yoga

Tuesday: rest

Wednesday: 2.5 miles with 5 minutes of planks

Thursday: 3 miles (in the rain)

Total mileage: 12.5

Here’s to hoping I can push out the triathlon on Sunday and then 6 miles on Monday 🙂

Be well.
