Have you heard the best time to buy a plane ticket is on Tuesdays at 3 pm? I didn’t quite make the the 3 pm deadline but I did get my ticket today to go back and visit my family in Port Angeles, WA! I didn’t even have to sell a kidney in order to afford it!
Port Angeles is on the Strait of Juan de Fuca (yes, I have always LOVED to say this!) and it’s about 3 hours northwest of Seattle, WA. One of the slogans is, “Where the Mountains meet the Sea” since the town is nestled in the Olympic Mountains. I’m not going to lie, this is one of the prettiest places in the U.S. If you ever get a chance, come out and visit!
Not only will I be spending some much needed time with my family, I will be running a half marathon. My family has never seen me run a race and I am really excited to do with this race with them in attendance. All of this fun business will be taking place in July. This is where I am hoping for a 1/2 PR – sub 2 hours!!
Today I also realized I am going to have one heck of a busy summer! I mentioned the waves of panic that swept over me the other night and I figured out today the only way to avoid this is to GET ORGANIZED. Now, classic organization isn’t one of my strengths – I definitely have my own style. This style needs to be tightened up a bit or else I am going to flounder! So I started, “The MONSTER To-Do List” today. It has the fun things I want to do and the mundane things I have to do. Luckily, I also have mega-organized friends who have offered to help – thanks friends, you da bomb! Once I have more of the fun stuff on there, I’ll put the list on here. I am determined to have a FUN summer!
Oh yeah, and can I just say how MAD I am at Dairy Queen for introducing this?!
My hips, thighs and bum hate you Dairy Queen… and kind of love you at the same time. If you can’t tell from the pic, its funfetti cake and blizzard. YUM!
Don’t forget! You have until tomorrow at 5 pm to enter my give-away!
