Friday Free-For-All – 06/12/15

FFFA (1)

It’s the first meeting of my running club tomorrow! To say I’m excited would be an understatement. I’m also a little bit nervous, because I’m kind of shy, but I’m gonna do it regardless. I need some extra motivation right now, and I think this running club could be the thing to push me.

We leave for Prague one week from today!Β  Aaaaaah! I am getting SO EXCITED. I’ve got my packing list pretty much ready to go, and I’m going to do a test pack this weekend to make sure everything fits in my carry-on and that I can stay within the weight limits. We’re changing planes so many times I don’t want to risk checking a bag and having my stuff get lost, but our airline has really strict weight limits, so I need to get creative.

I’m wearing a white t-shirt today. I’m taking bets on how long it will take to spill something on myself. This is literally my only white shirt, and I only bought it because it was $3.88 at Walmart. That way, if I ruin it, it’s not breaking the bank. I’m kind of a slob…

Caramel Vanilla Cream is the best GMCR coffee flavor. It’s delicious and doesn’t taste all fake and weird. I’ll probably have about three cups of it today, cause I’m wiped.

This will be the first weekend both Ben and I are staying at the new apartment. I know, I know, we moved in on the first(ish), but last weekend Ben was house-sitting for his parents, and I stayed at the new place with Creemee. I’m excited for us to spend some time together at the new place putting the finishing touches on cleaning, unpacking, and decorating. We’ve still got a fair amount of stuff to do. Number one on my list is blackout curtains for the bedroom. We have three hugeΒ east-facing windows in our bedroom, which means its full-on daylight in there by 4:45 am 😐 Hence me being wiped.

Are you worried about spills/stains when you wear light colors?

What are your weekend plans?

    I have two teen boys … and while I am a very neat eater, they are much more typical (as is Lisa πŸ™‚ ). So, yeah … we have a solid routine for fast stain treatment – and too many ‘formerly nice’ clothing options πŸ™‚

    So excited for your trip – enjoy every moment, these things are over so fast! Also great you’re together in the apartment! Small steps … πŸ™‚ I was in Corning for a month before everyone moved out … not fun!

    Weekend is full of end-of-school stuff, of course even more exciting due to Danny graduating in two weeks … so this weekend there is an award ceremony tonight (which will be the third thing this week!), then tomorrow night is the high school Pops concert. Whew!

    Yeah, we’ve seen what happens when I wear white….oh hello there orange highlighter. A flight to Prague WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO AMBIEN IT?! OH.DEAR.GAWD. And I fully expect the apartment shall be appropriately broken in with boxed wine, solo cups, and….well…..YOU know. πŸ™‚ hehehe…..

    Prague sounds so amazing!!! Good luck with the packing, I wouldn’t even know where to begin other than weather stalking. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend and hopefully you can get some curtains on those windows!

    Our bedroom is the same. Blackout curtains were a godsend! Hope you had fun with your new running club. I just joined a running clinic to train for the marathon. It starts next week and I’m nervous/excited. Like you, I’m a bit shy but I think the extra motivation will be just what I need! πŸ™‚
