Friday Things & Minion Love

Heyyo! It’s Friday!! You know what that means?! Well.. It means a few things today..

1. I have to proctor and grade today. YUCK! The worst is grading because we don’t get done proctoring the exam until 1:45pm, which means we don’t get started grading until 2pm. We usually finish grading around 7pm, but I have a feeling it’s going to take us longer today since we’re a grader and a half down.


2. HOWEVER. Grading also means PIZZA! Pizza is yummy. Pizza is lent is yummy – 1. Cheese only. Oh well. But you know why copious amounts of pizza is good today?! CARBS.. AKA: Carbo loading.


3. I’m running a half marathon tomorrow! The Martian Half Marathon tomorrow in Dearborn, MI will be half marathon #5 of the year!

4. I love minions.





Five Things Friday.

Holy bejesus it’s been a LONG week! As a quick recap, Tuesday I didn’t go into work/school so that I could study all day. Wednesday I was on campus from 8am-8:15pm, complete with an exam at 7pm. Thursday I felt like I was trying to play catch-up.. Luckily I’ve just decided to go into work on Saturday if necessary so I didn’t pay TOO much catch-up.


1. I got THIS awesome device and have yet to use it! SAD! I will next week, but with my crazy week there just wasn’t any time to go to the pool.. Getting to the gym was even hard this week!

2. BECAUSE of said crazy schedule, I was able to eat breakfast at home all week! You know what that means?! WARM steel cut oats with a banana! WOOHOO!

5. Remember awhile ago how I said how awesome my Moji 360 Massager was?! WELL, I got the knee wrap and the mini massager! I came home to them on Saturday after my long run.. Guess who put the knee wrap to use right away?! THIS GIRL! It’s seriously heavenly!

Valentines & a Half!

I’m SOO excited for this weekend! Seriously! I’m not even getting out of the cold for the weekend and I think it’s going to be great! As you all well know, tomorrow is Valentines! WHAT!? It’s already mid-way through February?! Insane!


So anyways! Tomorrow evening I’m going to be driving up to Mt Pleasant to hang out for the weekend. My boyfriend and I invited another couple, so we have dinner reservations at Lone Star for Valentines! Fun fact: My first ‘real job’ was at Lone Star.. ANYWAYS… I mean seriously, what’s more romantic than shoveling your mouth full of steak, potatoes, and some beer?!


Well. Probably no beer for me to be honest. I mean, I have a HALF MARATHON the next morning! Yup, I’m running race #2 in the Winter Warrior series. I’m SUPER excited for this one because I don’t have to leave Detroit at 4:30am to drive up to Mt Pleasant.

Lucky me, I even talked the other girlfriend to run the 5k! I’m pretty stoked! Well, sadly then they have to leave because she has a concert to go to Saturday evening. HOWEVER, the boy and I are going to hang out and go to Soaring Eagle Casino to drink and get our gambling on!
