A Day of Fun

When I do something exciting in “real life” I feel the need to blog about it immediately.  Since my life isn’t normally that exciting, I don’t have daily updates…they tend to get lumped into a weekly exciting blog post (and that’s really pushing it). Yesterday I had a great and funfilled day.  I don’t think my day has been that packed in a very long time.

I woke up early to run with my neighbor and friend Jamal.  I haven’t run with anyone in a while (minus my race but even then I was running alone).  This was a nice change to the routine. I always have a great time chatting with Jamal and the miles actually flew by so quickly.  By 7am, I found myself done with an 11 mile run.


I met Alexa at the Silver Diner for lunch.  I love the Silver Diner and the plethora of options they give.  I went with an omelette and a side of roasted vegetables.  They were lacking on the brussel sprouts but still so good.  I think I devoured the food in about one second (no really).


After a couple of appointments including a hair appointment I finally decided to get my curls back.  I had been back and forth with getting my hair done for the last 6 months.

I have been avoiding getting my hair cut (yes cut) for the last year because it’s expensive.  Yes, I could get a cheap trim but I just didn’t make time for that either.  Then when the said they could squeeze me in today I just went for it.  I cannot say it was cheap but I haven’t bought anything for myself unrunning related in ages.

Does this air conditioner make me look like a super model?

All in all, it was a great day and one of the best I’ve had in a while.  Honestly, this week has been really rough for me.  I’m trying to stay postive and not whine but I’ve been struggling a lot with Tim being away.

On another note, I’ve had quite a few new bloglovin subscribers lately so please say hello.  (I get an email everytime someone does..it makes me feel like I have friends).

Questions for you:

What was the last thing you treated yourself too?

Speaking of budgeting, what is your biggest advice?
