15 Thing Friday

1. Seriously-- thank GOD it's Friday. It's been a LONG week. First full week back since the winter break holiday and it was brutal. I've been counting down the moments to the weekend since like Tuesday.

2. Obsessed with this look. Seriously. 


I love that dress. She's gorgeous. He is hot. Love everything about this.

3. Shape magazine retweeted me. My life = MADE.

4. Heard this song on Pandora and LOVE it. Not a HUGE Ingrid Michaelson fan, but love this song.

5. I've been looking for a running zip-up hoodie with pockets that zip forevvvver and can't find one. Well, that's a lie. I got one from the in-laws for Christmas but it doesn't quiet fit right. I'm SUPER picky about running clothes that cost anymore than... well, free. If I pay anything for it, it better fit perfect. Plus, I'm CHEAP. So, that doesn't help. Bleah... the search continues.

6. I am OBSESSED with One Tree Hill right now. Still. I can't get enough.
I'm a little more than half way through season 3 and OMG. I literally just GASPED out loud. OBSESSED.

7. The Hubs and I are officially THOSE people.
Our lives pretty much revolve around Sadie. Exhibit A: We talk about her bowel movements via text. Regularly.

8. I bought a Groupon this week for a shellac manicure and a pedicure. I'm beyond pumped. For $35 it's a pretty sweet deal. I've never had a shellac manicure before, but I've heard they're amazing.

9. This is crazy. Seriously. She felt the need to WAX HER 3 YEAR OLD'S EYEBROWS?!?! Seriously. 13, maybe. But, 3?!?!? COME ON. I'm legit disgusted.

10. OMG. You all know I LOVE me some Taylor Swift. But, she outdid herself with this look. GORGEOUS. Looooove it. The earrings, the dress, the hair, the makeup. Love, love, love.

11. I didn't get up for the gym Wednesday or Thursday morning. FAIL. I told the Hubs last night he had to MAKE me get up when my alarm went off at 4:55am. While he didn't have to physically force me outta bed, it was a too close for comfort call. BUT, I did get up! 
My spinning class schedules been getting all rearranged this week because the normal instructor quit, so it's now Wednesday/Friday instead of Monday/Wednesday. You don't care, I know. Looooong story short, I got up at 4:55am, went to spinning and then hit the treadmill for 2.5 miles in 20:06 this morning. I was a sweaty mess at the end. Kinda love that. As much as getting up that early BLOWS, it sure makes me feel great at about 6:55am when I'm in the shower and know I already got a killer workout in. 

12. Why is this news? I mean, I get it-- it's a cool kinda social experiment or whatever... but, news worthy? C'mon. Although I suppose when you consider the same "news" source has THIS on as a headlining news story, I shouldn't be that surprised. (For the record, Yahoo! is not my personal news source. I promise.)

13. New stills came out for the next Hunger Games movie. Words cannot describe how pumped I am to see this movie.


14. The Hubs and I have to go grocery shopping tonight. What's on the list?
Exciting stuff, huh? Well, actually it is pretty exciting, since there's a whole recipe down there! What are we cooking up? This soup and this bread. I happen to already have all the ingredients for the bread-- that's how easy it is! And, we just made that soup for the first time a few weeks ago and I've been craving it again ever since, so we're making it again. It's SO good and pretty easy. I use turkey Italian sausage and up the heat by adding extra red pepper flakes. Yum, yum, yum.

15. Was this like the LONGEST week to anyone else? Maybe just because it was the first full week back since the holidays. Whatever the reason-- I am so incredibly glad it's Friday. We have NO plans for the weekend. Well, no scheduled need-to-do kinda plans. Grocery shopping, laundry, a redbox, a long run, seeing a movie at the cheap theater, some cooking (see #14), maybe going out for dinner or lunch, taking Sadie on lots of walks, and lots and lots of couch time. Perfection.


  1. One Tree Hill is an awesome show!! I love John and Emily, everything about them. And I am a closet Taylor fan. When I tell people that I get made fun of, so I am glad I have an ally in you :) Happy Friday!!

    1. I am seriously ADDICTED to the show! I've been FLYING through it on Netflix Instant. OBSESSED!!!!

  2. So glad that my husband and I aren't the only ones who discuss our puppy's "yard fertilization" habits regularly! Poor little guy -- we are like two helicopters, hovering over him all the time!
    PS -- I'm a new reader, another Megan (just off by one letter), and a fellow runner and (obviously) dog parent. Love your blog and Miss Sadie, she is such a cutie!

    1. OMG! I'm glad WE'RE not the only ones!!!!

      Aw! Thanks!!! Welcome to the blog! Hope you enjoy it! Always fun to get a new reader, but especially when we have the same name (we'll ignore the extra letter my parents decided to throw into mine)! :)

  3. Once you have a shellac you will never go back! They really are amazing!!! I always look for deals on them through groupon also because they are pricey otherwise!

    That Taylor Swift look is SMOKING!!!!!

    1. Oh really??!?!? Well, now I just need to get my booty into that salon! I'm pumped!!!
