how is it saturday already?!

As you may have noticed, there has been some silence around this here blog.  I’ve had a tough time writing this week.  Part of it was Ragnar exhaustion – is this a real diagnosis?  It should be!  Another part was a busy work week.  The last part is today is the 6th month marker of my mom’s passing and I have been thinking about her a lot.

With all of this cluttering my mind, I couldn’t really find the focus to write.  But that doesn’t mean I didn’t have a good week, just complicated!

1.  Cherries are back in season!  Yay!

2.  I got a new job!  More info on this to come (including a move that is going to be entertaining!).  I am staying at my current place of work but am moving up in the world.  I am really excited for this new opportunity!

3.  My niece graduated from high school!  How crazy is that?  She is simply amazing and I love her to pieces.  I can’t wait to see her in a month!

aren’t they a beautiful fam?!

4.  My first official S’more of the season!  Even though there was a check point at Ragnar with them, my marshmallow wasn’t melted soooo, I’m considering this the first real deal.

haha, I know, alien fingers here – oh well, it was delish!

5.  Umm… my “temp” Ragnar tattoo still hasn’t washed off… everyone thinks it’s real and I’ve gotten a few, “wow, it totally makes you look like a badass!”  Hmmm, should I make it permanent?! ;)

bad to the bone… or something like that

6.  I had a great 5 mile run the other day.  My love for running has returned.  Yay!

7.  We got a new fro yo place here!  It’s pretty weird inside but there are 16 flavors and lots of toppings.  Warning!  It’s expensive!  Oh and don’t get the red velvet – it takes chemically!  BUT the birthday cake option was awesome!

oh – the brownie chocolate fudge was decent too

8.  I found a bunch of fun stuff on sale that I’m going to put together for a giveaway!  Look for it soon!

9.  I’ve been googling “small apt living” non-stop for the last 24 hours.  I have been on pinterest stealing as many ideas as I can and am purging some of my belongings.  Yep, my new apt is a wee bit smaller than my current one.  Nevertheless, I’ve been bitten by the “less is more” bug and I am looking forward to getting creative with my space.  Here is what I want my bed to look like


I know there’s more.  Like I said, it was a busy week.  And even though my mom isn’t here to help me celebrate some of these achievements and fun moments, I know she is proud of me.

OH!  A very special Happy Birthday shout out to two of my dearest friends, Emily and Larissa!  Love you both so much!

  1. Shout out?!?! Hell-s yeah!! ;-) thanks for aiding in the birthday celebrations, love you babe!!

    And again, super happy for you…I’m certain that I’m the one sharing in your moms pride and joy!! <3

  2. I am obsessed with fro yo, but haven’t seen the birthday cake flavor yet. Now I am going to have to go to get some tonight. Sounds awesome. I like smores too, those also sound great. :-)

  3. Sounds like you had an emotional week! The Ragnar exhaustion is real! Today is the first day I feel “somewhat back to normal”.
    I am excited to hear about your move. Change is always an exciting and often good thing.
    Missing my Ragnar team. :-)
