This place was delicious. I got tacos. Whoops :)
I haven't really started a garden yet so I don't really have anything to post on that front. I'm sure I'll get around to telling you why I haven't started a garden within the next three weeks, but it's exciting!
I've been running lately. Let me tell you a little something about me - I'm not a runner. This body was definitely built for speed and not distance and these days even the speed part is questionable :). I started the couch to 5k app two months ago and yesterday I ran 5k. Well, I actually ran a little more than 5k because an eye appointment reminder came up on my ipod which made the app audio non existent until I realized it. Such crap!! I know that doesn't seem very far, but for someone like me, I may as well have been running to Texas for how far I felt I was running. So usually I don't talk about accomplishments, but I was pretty proud of myself because of the insane amount I despise running. I don't understand runners and their crazy ways. There is nothing about running that I like and every step is miserable. I was bitten by a dog in my running pursuit somewhere around week 6. I could have sworn I heard him growl, "stop running, go back home and sit on the couch." Even the dog knew that running is a pretty crappy idea and he was just trying to help. That being said, if I put on my shoes and earphones and step out the front door, I'll listen to that stupid app and I'll get some exercise which is better than no exercise. The end.
Vacation is coming. Can you feel that 90 degree weather? Can you hear the ocean and taste entirely too many tropical cocktails? Me neither... but it's gonna happen soon :). Documents have arrived in a pretty buttoned pouch with a Starbucks gift card that will be used at the airport when we are half asleep, sort of day dreaming, sort of real dreaming of the beach that we will be on in a few hours. Toes in sand, here we come!
If you'd like to see beach pictures, I'll probably be posting more to Instagram than anywhere else. @beccasgarden #imnotgoodathashtagssodontexpectmuch #beach
