What are you most looking forward to?

The answer will probably surprise you: I’m very much looking forward to my 40th birthday in July. I remember a time when I didn’t think I’d make it. So I’m pretty fucking stoked tbh.

Growing old is a privilege denied to many. I’ve decided to own it and be thankful.

The current plan is to have a party at home with all the besties and have QA play in the basement. It shall be epic af.

I think my 40s will be my best decade yet. 40, fabulous, fit, and fun — those are my goals.

mood booster

We really weren’t feeling it, but D and I sucked it up and did the 30DS tonight. And you know what? We’re both in a way better mood now. It’s hard to get started sometimes usually, but I never regret working out.

I also just want to take a second to say I have the best husband in the world. He’s so supportive and encouraging. Even when I’m being difficult. I’m very lucky. ❤️

3 miles yesterday.

4.85 today.

Not a bad start to the week. I should take my old running shoes to the office and leave them there. I could squeeze in a couple of miles during the lunch hour.

I’m hoping to find some good hiking this weekend. I don’t want to fall behind just because we’re on a mini vacation.

Okay so…

  • Tonight with the fam was just what I needed.
  • 2.5 miles tonight. #RiekAltRunningClub
  • And maybe 2 tequila shots.
  • F and I watched some Sunny. Her choice!
  • Tonight she said, “You give the best fashion advice,” and my heart almost exploded. ❤️
  • Also: “Everyone loves the jacket you helped me pick out.” ❤️❤️
  • The boy and I had a good run/walk and talk on the first lap.
  • He and his dad are moving back in with his grandma in November. I have many thoughts and feelings about this. Mostly, I’m grateful he’ll be with her. I know she’ll always take care of him.
  • My other not so nice thoughts about that situation I’ll just keep to myself. Well not to myself but I’ll keep them off the blog. Carrie and D have heard it all. Thanks, babes. 💙

  • I have been having the hardest time getting into my BOTM Club pick this month. Cross Her Heart. It’s just dragging and I don’t really care about any of these characters. My goal is to finish it by the end of the weekend. It’s put me in a reading slump, and that simply will not do!
  • I think I’m going to do more video blogging. That was fun.
  • I say um a lot and twirl my hair when I’m nervous it seems.
  • I have a bunch of shit to do for my bestie’s bridal shower brunch on Sunday. So. Much. Stuff.
  • But I’m going to curl up in bed and cuddle the pup while I read. The husband is off in his study fighting WWII. I’m good with it because tomorrow night he’s all mine. ❤️❤️❤️
