deary me, it's Friday

Friday, October 19, 2012


Dear Husband: I'm sorry you had to deal with my armpit hair this week. I know it got out of control at one point. I was scared, too. Thanks for doing what all good husbands should... force their Bohemian wives to get their armpits of doom under control.

Dear Future House: Let's call you Waldo, because we're lookin' for you (although I really hope you don't have red and white stripes). I know you're out there. You've pretty hardwood floors, a huge walk-in closet, no hideous wallpaper to speak of... right? Make it easy on a sister, reveal yourself. I promise I will keep you squeaky clean (right before company comes over).

Dear Buzzfeed: I've never laughed so hard. (That's probably not true, don't wanna build this up too much.) But seriously, people at work were concerned. Hi-freakin-larious. If you need another excuse to remember your birth control today, please do yourself a favor and read this.

Dear Marathon: You are approaching sooner than I'd like. Somehow I've convinced myself this last week that running isn't actually essential to this whole training thing, and that McDonald's fries will increase my speed. Mistake. I was feeling pretty good about my 6-mile run until a 8-month preggo lady passed me on the trail. Embarrassing. Maybe there's an award for last place?

Happy weekend, everyone!

Love it! Fries def. hold some appeal over running! Newest follow from ATX.

i used to always get so mad when old people would pass me running. I'd try so hard to stay close to them. definitely not a self esteem booster!

Nicole said...

That list is HILARIOUS!!! Definitely made my morning!

Kate said...

Good luck on the house search. I remember how terrible that experience was, finally after lots of looking we found the perfect home and you will too! We had to get rid of some nasty wallpaper and pull up carpets to reveal hardwood, BUT it was worth it!

I find McDonalds to be a necessity when marathon training. Maybe that pregnant lady was only running fast so she could get to the hospital and get an epidural? Or inevitably she had to pee thus accelerating her pace? : )

Lauren said...

that buzzfeed list was awesome... and somewhat disturbing ;)

Leia Glover said...

You will find THE house. & I will come over and paint your walls chevron, since mine finally happened and they are uh(dash)mazing.

What is it with the week before a race non-running-ness, I caught it too! My VERY first race ever this weekend and I haven't so much as looked at my running shoes for the last week. womp.

Syndal said...

glad you shaved your pits. ;)

Hope you find that pretty little house soon.
Granted, I don't know if I would have made the investment knowing all the hidden costs behind a house. No matter how much you think you have saved, SAVE more! You can thank me later :-)))

Have fun with the house hunt!! We loved looking at houses! Fries are my weakness. McDonald's ones...the best. :)

Jodi said...

I'm think it is pretty impressive that you are going to run a marathon. I could never do it. I hate running. I did a 50 mile 3 day walk in Sept for MS and that was pretty intense but amazing too! Good luck w/ the marathon!

Renee said...

Bahahaha!! LOVE that wee kids thing! I actually cried i was laughing so hard! You'll be totally ready for your run! That preggo lady was probably hyped up on hormones!! Good Luck with hunting down your soon-to-be home!!

Allison said...

Wait what? McDonalds fries don't increase your speed? I have been fooled too then. Haha. Good luck on your marathon and finding Waldo!

Ashley said...

Sooo funny! Thanks for the laugh! Arm pit hair is awesome. We all have that issue, but are too embarrassed to talk about it! Haha

Andrea @ Love is... said...

I totally feel you on the running thing. When I was dq'd from a triathlon, because I couldn't catch my breath & then saw a girl that finished that was 4 months pregnant, I wanted to slap myself.
