Special Delivery!

16 Nov

I’m not big on spending money — I mean, I spent a lot this year doing all of the runDisney events but that is highly irregular for me!

So, when I was at the Tower of Terror expo and stopped by the Fond Memories Graphics booth, I was “just looking”. But then….

Fast Forward to this past Thursday. I had gone to Five Guys for a birthday dinner hot dog and didn’t realize until Friday morning that I had gotten a package while I was gone:

I love packages of any kind! Big and little!!

And it was from FMG!

IMAG1354

I know what this is!!!

There was lots of bubble wrap and peanuts so you KNOW it was gonna be good!

IMAG1355

Excellent! Now I have packaging materials for Christmas cookie mailing!!

And then extra wrapping!

IMAG1356

Oh…it’s even pretty through the plastic!!

Voila!!

I had figured that it was very likely that I would never again run Goofy AND Dumbo in the same year again so I should celebrate the accomplishment!!

Now to find a place for it on the wall in the basement!

So….this happened 🙂

Now, I have nothing against rhododendrons, but I really don’t think they’re good “foundation” plants…unless I can keep them bushy and short…which I can’t. But, I am not as anti-rhodo as I am anti-forsythia! The LEAVES!! Oh my gosh! So…that’s next week.

Also this weekend? 15 miles thankyouverymuch. Yeah. I’m tired tonight, possibly a little sore/achy…but overall I feel pretty darn good! Glad I got it done, feeling more motivated and really appreciating the run.

Beautiful 10 miles today for sure! And, for someone who really just does not enjoy the hills? I moved to the wrong place…it seems I went uphill WAY more than I went downhill! Or even flat!! But I went. I covered the distance.

I think I have figured out my 10K costume for the runDisney #DumboDoubleDare. And it’s not even a Disney character so I might save it for my visit to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in October…but I am in need so…

Interesting week ahead – lunch tomorrow with my recruiter/agency. This will be a good one since I just told them I don’t want to stay where I am anymore. Appointment with my GYN on Tuesday to discuss old lady stuff…life is full of surprises when you get to “a certain age” and believe it or not – they are not all balloons and cake!! Friday I have an interview that I’m really looking forward to. I think this might be the role I’ve been looking for.

Oh yeah…and there’s miles to get in and some hot room to be sweated in. And…gonna try to eat like an adult this week – but my prep for that is a little lacking…and so it might be a tuna+cottage cheese week…

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is really ready for the week!

Runnin’ Down a Meme…

22 Jun

Okay…so it doesn’t EXACTLY rhyme…but you know what I’m sayin’!!

And, I get that I’m not actually creating a meme — Defined as “an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” Mine really pretty much stay confined to my own little Instagram/Twitter/Facebook world! But still..!! They are unifying ideas.

When I ran the runDisney Princess Half Marathon my friend Cindy told me I should look for a Prince so I started searching…

I looked high and low…found a lot of candidates and had a really great time!!

In a couple of months, I’m heading back to Disneyland for the Dumbo Double Dare  and am looking for my next own personal meme….or maybe theme is a better word. But I like meme so we’ll leave it at that!

It should be something that allows me to get lots of pictures with lots of characters – or other significant things/places at the Disneyland parks. I’m not really great at interacting with new people and this makes it easier and a lot more fun!

So let me hear your suggestions!
