Family Vacation 2014: Ocean City, MD

Last week we spent 5 glorious days in Ocean City, MD. I love the beach and seafood and ice cream, so I was one happy camper. :-).

Playground fun!

Great vacation and I can’t wait to go back. 🙂

Three things…

1. I’m running my first 50k tomorrow! Here’s hoping to becoming an Ultra runner tomorrow!

2. I had my first Stitch Fix today and I LOVED everything!

3. I’m turning 32 tomorrow (Sunday)!

See you from the finish line!

If only we didn’t need to sleep.

Vampires (hello Bella and Edward) must get so much done. I LOVE to sleep, but it just seems that life would be easier if our bodies didn’t require so much. My ideal amount of sleep would be 7-8 solid hours…actual amount of sleep 5. Lame sauce. I hope you all are getting enough rest!

My schedule has changed recently and due to a full time job, a long commute, a very active 1 1/2 year old, and solo parenting for most nights of the week…I don’t really have the time I would like to be able to talk to you guys. I hope to get back to regular posting soon!

Here’s what’s happening:

1. Lots of running last weekend…28.5 miles total. 4.5 miles of track work, 10 miles of flat easy running, 14 miles of sweat drenched humid couldn’t be hotter trail miles.

How much sleep do you get each night?

What’s been going on in your life?

Do you have a vacation coming up? Just go on one?

4. Fresh fruit! I am in LOVE with strawberries. When I was little, my family went to Sizzler on Easter and I would get plates full of just strawberries. Not sure why or how I remember this…

5. It’s 7-11, so make sure to get your free Slurpee. We don’t have 7-11s where I live…anybody else in the same boat? It’s also “dress like a cow” for a free meal day at Chic Fil A.

Tell me something fun about your Friday!

Slurpee or milkshake?
