I grew up blaring The Beach Boys in my daddy's 1964 Buick Riviera in the summertime at Sonic.

The title of this post has nothing to do with my blog content. It's just something that I tweeted last night and I thought it would be an awesome blog title if I had a good nostalgic story to share. At this point, I've got nothing that would go with it. Maybe I'll come back to it at some point. I know I've mentioned recently that I hope my kids read this at some point, and I do. But since, my Grannie died as a result of complications from Alzheimer's, I really have decided to write more about my childhood here and there just because I really do want a place for all of it. Just in case, I am diagnosed with it as well.

Oh, I guess I should add that I tweeted it during the Grammy's last night because they had a Beach Boys Reunion with Maroon 5 and Foster the People. And it was awesome!!! It was so good to see the Beach Boys and to listen to sounds of my childhood.


My mind is kinda all over the place and I was really struggling for a topic to write about today so I guess I'll blog through it.


Nikki from The Pink Growl asked last Friday what my mile time is now and what my goal time for running is.

When I mentioned that I was down 5 minutes, it was a guestimation.

However, thanks to my History in my Nike+ app, I actually have shaved 10 minutes and 10 seconds off my mile time!!!!!!!

I should also add that I'm using the Couch to 5k app. I'm in Week 8 of that app.

My original mile time was 26:17 and now my mile time is 16:07.  That's pretty stinkin' cool huh!!!

My goal time? Gosh, I'd really like to run a 10 minute mile, but I have bad knees from softball, plus I'm still pretty heavy so it may be a long shot.  I'm still going to give it my best shot.

Still on the running subject, have any of you ever had a foot fall asleep while you run? Is there something I'm doing wrong or could change about my form?


I am OBSESSED with this hair cut. Think I could pull it off?


This is the color and pattern of the bedspread in our room....and we're in need of an update. We have some tax money coming in so I want to add some color to our bedroom. So far I've been told a yellow mustard would be a good match and I agree. I kinda want another color though because we have white walls in our bedroom. (We live in an apartment and I don't feel like painting the walls back when we get ready to move out in a year and a half.)

So thoughts?

Happy Monday!

My foot used to fall asleep when I was running a lot! Glad I'm not the only one. But I have no idea why it does it or how to fix it...
