Spring…is that you???

Well- I have been in some kind of mood here lately. Generally cranky and have absolutely zero motivation. I have abandoned the vegan challenge and the every day run challenge. It just wasn’t working for me. Too much self-inflicted guilt. Instead, I finally went hiking/climbing (how do you know which is which? I think I did both) and heavily drinking with my brother. That helped!

Also saw Oz this weekend. Not impressed, but not terrible. I think that is one franchise I will not buy into. On the other hand…super into Vampire Diaries right now…it’s bad. Like, losing sleep to watch one more episode bad. 

I’m in major tattoo mode. Can’t decide what I want. Something with a dandelion and a quote from either “The Little Prince” or “Alice in Wonderland.” Or both.

Also, hunting for a second job. To correspond with my hunt for a house to buy. Both of these are very lackadaisical hunts….more like a gaze, really.

2 year anniversary tomorrow- excited to go out to dinner and hiking w/ the husband. Work is generally crazy. Weekend ahead looks pretty dull (yes it’s only Monday and I’m already thinking about the weekend), but this one didn’t have horseback riding planned, and look what happened!

Off to appreciate the spring showers (aka monsoon…but whatever)

mashed potatoes..yumm!

Back on the vegan train!! Not all the way; I’m still cleaning out my refrigerator…that’s my excuse, anyway! Eggs are out, cheese is borderline at the moment, and I’m not reading ingredient lists yet. It’s a process, y’all!

Think we found a house we want to buy…I feel like I have learned SO much about personal finances in the past year or two, and our bank account is starting to show it. I’ve been reading blogs and watching videos and piecing together everyone’s “methods.” News flash: there is no magic pill (for anything: money management, weight loss, happiness) that will work for everyone! But, I’m finding the tips and tricks that make sense and work for us.

So far (and yes, I know it’s only the 5th) I’ve run every day this month! Yay, me! hope I can keep it up. My reward will be the Color Me Rad 5k on the 30th.

I’m getting SUPER excited about the Hangout. Beach and good music, hooray! Not too sold on the people I’m going with, but the more music I listen to the more I think it’ll be good. Now if only this veganism and running challenge could make me skinny, toned, and tanned just in time for the festival!
