The first day of Spring and my calendar also tells me that it is International Happiness Day!

After a brutal Winter, it’s time to not post about the terrible winter until next winter.  Keeping with this Five for Friday alliteration theme I’ve done the last three weeks, I’m going to keep it going with Spring Facts.  Maybe next week I’ll even have an accompanying photo!

Week 1: Friday the 13th, Pi day and my life

Week 2: Articles, Spring and LOLZ life


Five Articles I found interesting:

  1. How to Celebrate International Happiness Day I actually think I might do this next week.  It sounds like a great idea.
  2. International of Happiness Everything you need or want to know.
  3. 43 Interesting facts about spring I’m all about collecting unusual trivia facts…who knows when they will come in handy.
  4. Best Spring Break Spots Need a vacation?  Don’t we all.  I’ve been to 3/10…how many have you been too?
  5. Race Smarter and Become Less Dependent on your GPS My style of racing…

Five Blog Posts from the Last Two Weeks:

  1. Will Hall ever successfully finish another marathon?  Reader review says no.
  2. Things that Got me Through the Winter Can we still talk about how it’s Spring now?
  3. How I began Running
  4. To Hire a Coach…or Not…that is the question
  5. CW-X Compression Tights Review

Five things going on in my life right now:

  1. I’m in Virginia working on wedding stuff. We are meeting with my wedding planner today as well as the catering tonight (cake and food are my favorite).
  2. My butt (piriformis) is feeling slightly better.  It has become a lot more localized into the hip.  It no longer radiates down the adductor muscle.  It’s pinpointed to the psoas and piriformis.  I’m not sure if this is good.  When I finished the marathon I was at an 8 in pain.  Now I’m probably at a 5.  To be honest, this issue is tiresome because it’s hard to say exactly when I will get better.  I just want to be fixed.
  3. I tried on my wedding dress yesterday and it still fits and I like it.  So I guess that is a good thing…all that travel to try on a dress to make sure…
  4. Being down in Virginia makes me realize how close the wedding is.  I’m not in panic mode but shut the front door, I’m really getting married in 3 weeks.
  5. My parent’s are proud owners of a Pet Donkey.  I wrote about a while back here...but I got to hang with him yesterday.  (And yes his name is really Badonkadonk). pet dokey


That is all I have this Friday.  Enjoy your weekend!

Question for you:

What are you up to this weekend?

I’m down in Virginia…wedding planning, friend meeting, and all that fun stuff.

What kind of pets do you have?

  1. Hooray for Happy everywhere!

    Exciting news about the wedding prep this weekend! I hope there is a beautiful flow to the process for you; some things get kinda wonky.

    This weekend = Nephew’s 2nd birthday party, hanging out with Sophia (Harry’s 7 year-old), and running. And the inevitable awesome trip to Trader Joe’s.

    I have a Siberian Husky (Kayla!). Having a donkey would be pretty sweet, especially if their name is Badonkadonk.

  2. Hooray for your dress still fitting :). I love the picture of you and your donkey and hope you have a good time in VA. Glad your piriformis pain is getting a bit better. Mine is as well, it seems to be improving each day but I’m still not 100%. You’re doing the smart thing by getting it taken care of, though :).

  3. A donkey?!?! That is all kinds of awesome. I’ve got the regular gig going on this weekend just like every other day: kids, diapers, food, running, red wine in the evening (or afternoon if the day is super shitty), making out with husband, writing some stuff.

  4. 3 weeks!!!?? omg didn’t you guys JUST get engaged lol. Time flies. I love that donkey..i must meet him haha! We can’t have pets so I call the tiny plant on our window sill my pet..he’s still alive so that’s a bonus. 🙂

  5. My daughter’s absolute favorite animal in the world is a donkey–can she come visit? A wedding dress that you like is a good thing. And that fits. I’m predicting a fabulous wedding day!

    Can’t believe I’m in the minority about Ryan Hall!

    And seriously, where the hell is spring today?!

  6. Pet donkey. haha too awesome
    yay for wedding planning.!! getting almost to the home stretch 🙂
    and I have a dog, and I work this whole weekend. pooey.

  7. 3 weeks??!!!! The time went by so fast and I’m not even planning it, so I can’t imagine how it feels for you!

    Always love pictures of that fine ass! ;o) My LOLz for the day.

  8. It’s International Happiness Day? That’s pretty cool. And fitting since I am now officially on spring break. Hooray for your dress still fitting! That can be stressful to worry about.

  9. I hope it’s warm down in Virginia! I’m so glad to hear your pain is subsiding. That’s a great sign! As you know, I will be racing in snow and slush tomorrow. I hope we can hang out soon!

  10. Where the heck is spring?! I’m home in Syracuse for a long weekend, and it snowed yesterday. I shouldn’t be surprised, but still …

  11. Thanks for reminding me it is spring!!! I totally forgot that starts today (and the weather here forgot too). After an absence from the blog world for so long, I’m glad to hear that your wedding planning is going well. I actually think that one of the last posts I read here was the one about Badonkadonk… how sad is that?!
