ABCs of Me

Just a quick update before my little post. We had a really good weekend! We headed to Cnooga to Zach's mom's for my birthday lunch. It was really nice, and we had fun visiting with the fam. Then, me & my sweetie shopped a little, then went to the movies to see Beauty & the Beast. I had forgotten how good that movie is! It was even better in 3D. And I cried like a little girl, even knowing exactly how the story went. :) Then, on Sunday, we had church that morning then a yummy lunch at Tiger's Inn. We rested most of the afternoon- all I accomplished was the laundry. Restful Sunday afternoons will soon be no more though, because kids' choir rehearsal starts back next week.
So, I enjoyed this one to the fullest.

A few other things that have been going on... Something weird has come over me. Lately, I have been wanting to start running. I don't know if it's just part of my goals for the new year (which I do want to be healthier & exercise more), but "I just felt like running"... Please tell me you read that in a Forrest Gump voice. (If not, it may just be me, Zach & my little brother who have movie lines memorized & quote them in every day conversation).

I got some new tennis shoes for Christmas, so that may also be part of it too. Anyway, I woke up rather early on Saturday morning, and just had the drive to get up & get out. I bundled up (it was a little chilly), and ran around our neighborhood. I did take a few breaks & walk in between. It felt great!! I had more energy all throughout the day. Then, on Sunday afternoon, Zach & I walked around our neighborhood with the doggies.
I'm hoping we'll keep up this routine.

Another new thing that happened this week- I got shellacked. My mom got me a gift certificate to get my nails done for my b-day. Needless to say, it didn't stay with me too long, because I got them done at the beginning of last week. I picked out a pretty red color, and had the shellac painted on. I love that it's my actual nails, and the shellac keeps them so strong! I am afraid this is going to be a new vice of mine, because I can't get over how great they turned out. My nails have been put through the ringer over the last week too, and the color will NOT wear off and has not shown any marks or dents. They are still just as shiny as they were when they were done. I highly recommend this- just as a treat to yourself, and it's cheaper than getting a full set of nails.

So, on to my post. I know this is one of those time-wasting filler posts, but I love doing these things if I have spare time. I hope to get my butt into gear this week & start/finish not one, but two, projects. We'll see how that goes...
