Donuts. Nom, nom.

IMG_6237
I love eating. Especially stuff that isn’t good for you. Donuts and I are total besties. I love going for a long run and treating myself to donuts. Because seriously who can eat just one? Recently I have found myself following blogs about people who run and also have a love for sugary treats. While browsing one of those blogs I came across this amazing donut chart. Of course I felt the need to share in order to justify my donut habits. Now I am off to eat a donut.

The Levee

What do people who live in Mississippi do on beautiful Thursday evening? Take their puppies on a levee ride. And wear super awesome blue shades. Oh and take super fun selfies. This is totally one of my happy places. Hope you are in your happy place. That sounds awkward. Happy!

Sprouts

What have I been up to? Planting gardens, well and running more on that later, maybe tomorrow? I am so excited to watch my garden grow. We just got some crazy rains which equals lots of green sprouts. Woot, woot! Maybe I do have a green thumb. I’ll keep you posted.

It’s all about those 7s

7 miles before 7 (almost) on the 7th. Happy 7th day of May!

I got new running shoes what a game changer. Whoa! My #1 running tip…get a good pair of shoes and track your miles in them. I’m a firm believer in the 300 miles rule. If your shoes have gone 300 miles they deserve to be retired. Your feet, shins, joints, knees will thank you. Don’t want to wait for shoes? Order from Zappos. I ordered my new Brooks Tuesday afternoon and they were at my door within 24 hours. Now that is service, sheesh! Supporting local stores is super awesome too if you can. #shoplocal All this great advice before 8 AM-who am I?

Happy Thursday!

Music festivals are my jam

Teehee, get it, my jam. Too much? Nah. One of my favorite ways to spend a spring weekend is sitting in the sun listening to amazing music with my fella. Welcome to last weekend. We ventured to Meridian, MS. Super cute downtown by the way. The Farmers Market, and the PIE! Oh MY! If you ever find yourself in Meridian have some brunch on the balcony at Weidmann’s Restaurant and save room for the pie. Oh, the pie. We then skipped across the street (not literally, it was more of a slow walk) to a super cute beer garden that had an amazing beer selection (I am currently crushing on the Traveler Grapefruit Ale, it tastes like summer) and then we found ourselves on the front lawn of city hall taking in some amazing tunes by super talented musicians at the Jimmie Rodgers Music Festival. Weekend well spent! Best act? Steep Canyon Rangers by far! That fiddle player…wow. Also, this past week they announced the Mighty Mississippi Music Festival lineup—Old Crow Medicine SHOW! What?! I can hardly contain my excitement. Happy times, happy times ahead.

Life Unexpected

As we know, or at least you are starting to realize, I am constantly obsessed with random stuff. Currently, I am obsessed with “Life Unexpected.” Actually, it has to come to an end because I just finished the last episode and omg. What a drama! Not only are the main characters familiar faces from my high school WB dayz (yes, I just spelled dayz with a z), um Dawson’s Creek and Roswell anyone? But, the love triangles, the lies, the high school drama. Fantastic! Looking for a series to keep you busy for the next few days? I highly recommend “Life Unexpected” on the good ole Netflix. Also, the soundtrack! Yummy. You can thank me later. Now enjoy these happy flowers on my mantel. It is spring y’all!
