New this week

This is not me. I don't know David Martinez.

In the spirit of trying new things...

On Mondays I go to yoga. Not new. But during class yesterday, I did this and it was new. Not that I look even remotely like the girl in this photo mind you. Something new all the same.

Today I went on a good old fashioned power walk with a new friend through a new neighborhood. I say old fashioned because it's really been ages since I've walked and not run. I sort of feel dumb walking alone. Like I should have a dog with me or something. 

Now I am baking banana bread with almonds. Look out.

Run a marathon: check!

"go, princesses!"

A quick post before my two day work week commences and I am sucked into the evil vortex of 4 days of emails. The marathon was AWESOME! 
I was lucky to have a nice chilly day to run and that had everything to do with me far exceeding the loose goal I had set for myself. Despite a hard fall around mile 15 (come on, this is me. I never get by totally unscathed), my pink tiara and I had a great race. I am already starting to poke around the internet for a nice flat marathon this winter... 
I'm hooked! More details to come, but this photo pretty much sums up the day.

Thanks especially to Katie, I could NEVER have done this with out you. And to Mom, Dave, Kyle, Mike and Brett, our awesome mobile cheering section. And to everyone who supported me with their Team Tiara donations! Thanks again.

Cookie of the Day

One fun thing I get in my email everyday is the Martha Stewart cookie of the day. They have been sooo cute lately! I love tasteful Hallowen stuff, no pun intended :) Would I ever take the time to make cookies everyday, probably not, but I just love the seemingly endless supply of ideas.
My favorite are the brain cupcakes.

In other Halloween news, I have a question for the general audience
(I know, it's like 4 people, but still). Brett has a boxer costume and always dresses up as Rocky for Halloween parties. He says I have to be Adrian. Um, boring! Doesn't she wear turtlenecks and wool skirts? That is pretty much my winter uniform. A friend suggested I go as a pregnant Adrian, not too sure about that though. Thoughts on spicing up this potentially school-marmish ensemble? Smeared mascara from crying perhaps?

lunch with a side of salsa

I just took a salsa dance class at the gym at my office. It is always fun (not quite the right word) to see your coworkers in their spandex instead of their suits, not to mention when the class gets really wild and you all shout "uno dos tres!" right along with Ricky Martin. No, not at all awkward. But even more fun is when the teacher is Ricky Ricardo and Richard Simmons' love child. Not even kidding.

2 bottles of cheap wine, Johnny Carson tapes

Can anyone guess what movie I'm watching?

to clarify...

A few posts ago was an image of Sarah Palin juxtaposed with Miss South Carolina. Many people have been asking me what's up with that. A couple years ago, Miss South Carolina got asked a question during the "gotta try to look smart portion" of a pageant, and her answer was crazy. You have to see it (youtube Miss South Carolina). When you see it, you'll see the connection to Palin's rambling interview with Katie Couric. Ahhh, the election. An endless supply of fodder for people like me who only pay attention every 4 years and find themselve's quite witty. And love jokes about pigs, lipstick and the like.
