Updates and Rambles

I don’t have any real goal for this post so we are just rolling with it today, how exciting right?

Update Number One: I updated my about me pages… nothing major just made it more relevant and changed around a few things.

Update Number Two: I got a twitter for this lovely blog o’ mine!¬† Follow me and I will promise to blow your mind daily with witty tand insightful thoughts… just kidding… I’m still learning but if you are willing to watch me try I would very much appreciate it and maybe ONE day blow your minds.¬†

Update Number Three:¬†I ran 7 miles over the weekend which was a very exciting accomplishment! I did not post about it because I used my garmin and got all distracted but it happened and this week when I move up in mileage I promise to actually post about it… I mean the Mad Marathon is just over a month away… gotta keep it up!

Update Number Four: I am down 7lbs since I moved home and thanks to my new found motivation (cough* cough* running in to the ex-boyfriend with a new girlfriend cough* cough*) I joined a gym close by work to take part in group exercise classes and use the scary-ass fun weight machines.  Judge me as needed for this girly admission, motivation is motivation however you slice it right?

Update Number Five: I crossed off something SUPER fun on my summer bucket list over the weekend.¬†I practiced for hours and think I have finally got it down to where I have myself convinced I look damn good doing it… if you read the list I think you will be able to tell you what I did but I’m going to make a completely separate post about it this week (maybe even a video… hello youtube fame) so hold on to your hats!

Update Number Six: I have spent the last four days watching the first season of House online.¬† I have seen House randomly and always loved it and now that I know it ended I want to watch all of the seasons so that is what I am working on.¬† I love it, I am a big fan of crime shows but the more I watch the less sleep I get.¬† House gives me that same drama of what is going to happen next except I’m just not thinking I’ll develop lepracy tomorrow… fingers crossed anyway!

Update Number Seven: I am joining the Foodie Penpals army! It is so exciting! Basically I’m going to be sending a food filled care package to a random blogger/reader ($15 max) and another blogger/reader will be sending me one as well.¬† June 30th is the reveal day of what we got and I am so pumped! I of course will cover more of the details when reveal day comes around but if you are interested definitely click on the link!¬† I hope the people I send¬†boxes to¬†like maple… gotta represent Vermont;)

Update Number Eight: It is the¬†Burlington Discover Jazz Festival this week!¬†This is such a¬†cool event put on by so many different vendors and local businesses to showcase some AMAZING talent from around the world.¬† I think I’m going to at least one show four out of the ten days it is put on so that in itself will be a really fun distraction.¬† I will probably be overposting about it so you have been warned!¬† You know I love me some people watching and music;)

Alright folks, I think you’ve had enough of my rambles now I am¬†busting out my first “questions” that I see everyone else post on their blogs (genious really) you guys are such trend setters.¬†

Have you done anything or looking forward to anything new and exciting lately? 

Is anyone else TERRIFIED of weight machines at the gym?
