It's Gonna Be May

(This never gets old.) Seriously. Where has the time gone? This year is almost HALF OVER. What the heck?

Wednesday, April 24, 2013


I've been feeling a little overwhelmed lately. There are so many things I want to do, and just not enough time to do them all! I haven't been crafting or baking in what seems like FOREVER. Mostly due to travelling a ton (seriously, this will be the first weekend I've stayed home all month and May is not looking any better) and having a busy social calendar.

I kid. I kid. But seriously - I need a week to catch up on all my TV and finally finish one of the 6 half knit projects I have going on. This weekend is the Nike Women's Half and I CANNOT WAIT for it to be over and to not have to train anymore. Not that I've been doing a fantastic job at it, but it's hard to find time to run for 2 hours on the weekend and I just about died running in the 80 degree weather we had a few weeks ago. WHAT WAS UP WITH THAT!?

I'm going to take the summer to lose weight and get my mile time back down to 10 minutes for long distance runs. We'll see how that goes. I do have the May the Fourth Be With You party next weekend. So I'm excited to plan for that. It has been probably about 15 years since I've seen any of the original Star Wars movies. I think we can all agree that that is extremely way too long.

Friday Musings #34

I seriously cannot get enough of Pic Stitch. Who doesn't love a collage!? I traveled to NYC this past weekend with my sister and friend Megan. I ATE SO MUCH.

Waffles & Dinges = heavenly goodness. It's a Belgian waffle and you can pick what toppings you want.... speculoos, nutella, bananas, berries, whipped cream, powdered sugar... etc. Words can't even describe how good this is. If you ever go to NYC, you can find their cart at the south east entrance of Central Park. Unfortunately it is as messy as it is delicious and I proceeded to drop a big piece in my lap. Nothing like having a big brown chocolate spot on the front of your pants as you're walking into Tiffany's to oogle all the sparkly. I am the picture of class.

I ran 8 miles Saturday morning through Central Park.(Which hopefully just about burned the Dinges off...) It was fantastic. I ran by the Bethesda Fountain which was in one of the more recent Doctor Who episodes I watched. I had never seen it in real life before so I was not prepared to just stumble upon it while running and I got WAY too excited. Like it was seriously one of the highlights of my trip.

The other highlight?? MEETING CHRIS HARDWICK. I've been listening to the Nerdist podcast while I run. I highly recommend it. He interviews tons of people: comedians, actors, video game people, scientists, authors... the list goes on. I'll get back into crafting eventually... when I'm not busy travelling all over the place. But not this weekend! I'm heading to Charlottesville to visit a friend. Happy Friday!!

More Baby Shower Treats!

Not that these are much different from the boy baby shower cookies I posted 2 weeks ago, but here are the girl baby shower cookies/mini cupcakes I made for my friend Kim's shower. It was for her second child so it was pretty chill and also the first co-ed one I've planned. Our theme was everything mini so we had sliders, individual servings of mac n' cheese, pigs in a blanket, chicken nuggets, jello shots, and mini forks and spoons to eat everything with! The best part was baby colors = Easter colors so DOUBLE USE!
