Gimme a shish-kabob, a margarita and two of my lovely gal pals and you’ve got yourself SHISHKARITA night!
What? What? Okay! It’s girls night on a school night and I love it!
Jessica, Ashley and I decided we needed a nice night of catching up on girl talk while indulging in healthy eats and yummy drinks. Hence Shishkarita night was born.
Cheers to ladies night! I had a blast hanging with them both and was definitely due for a fun night with friends. I will be lying low on the alcohol scene once I start marathon training with the exception of birthday drinks this weekend. (The big 2-7 commences on Sunday!)
P.S. Happy Birthday today to the lovely Brittany and my awesome Uncle Rob!
Confessions of a newbie bike commuter:
I rode Sea Breeze to work again yesterday (this makes two for the week!) and had a lovely commute to work. I was stoked that I made it in record time, under 18 minutes.
I went to change into my work clothes and was pleasantly surprised to find this in my bag.
Yup, two right shoes. I don’t know how this happens to me, as this is not the first time if you can remember this incident.
Anyways, I went and preached to the choir yesterday about packing your work clothes the night before and did I follow my own instructions? No. I did not. If I had laid my work clothes out the night before I would have noticed that I was grabbing two different right shoes.
Who knew this girl had more than one pair of tiny heeled shoes. 😦
So needless to say, I was at work all dressed in my work clothes to find out I either had to walk around barefoot or wear my running shoes with a skirt. Lucky I was able to take the company car for a quick drive back to the house to pick up my left shoe. (I realize this completely negated the whole idea of saving the earth by not driving… blah blah blah).
I repeat, LAY YOUR CLOTHES OUT THE NIGHT BEFORE, oh yeah and DON’T FORGET YOUR KEYS either.
I think when I start a new routine I manage to forget everything else that matters and real destruction happens. Hopefully I have all the kinks worked out now.
Another challenge on my commute yesterday morning was trying to figure out how to travel with my morning green monster. (I usually just drink and drive) 😉
So I came up with this idea….
Can’t beat Green Monster in a Tupperware? It got some funny reactions at work though when I was actually drinking from this container.
Between the shoe issue and the GM in a Tupperware, I think my fellow employees must think I am whacked out.
I can definitely say that I laughed a lot yesterday. And laughing is good for the soul.
My Running Report:
Between work and Shishkarita night I met up with Jessica and Brooke for a 3 mile run.
Lookie closely, I finally busted out my new Nike Running skirt. I was SO excited to finally wear it.
The review was a big a thumbs down unfortunately. 😦 The little shorts underneath kept riding up every step I took. It caused a ton of chaffing and discomfort. I am super bummed because looking at the pictures I feel super cute. But the uncomfortable feeling was too much to bear. I am retiring this skirt on it’s first debut.
I know a lot of you run in running skirts – what brand/type do you wear? How does it feel when running?
I am just thinking I may need to buy a different brand, because I don’t want to admit defeat to the running skirt just yet.
