Oh, Happy Day

Yes, I am not one of those perky people who wake up just a little too happy that everyone wants to strangle.

I did get almost 9 hours of sleep. Yes! 9 hours! And I had some crazy dreams. Daniel Craig (oh, please, he can visit me anyday! He makes me happy!) and Steve Miller, of all people were involved. I don't know where I have Steve Miller hidden in my brain but he made himself known. So random and weird.
Steve Miller

9 hours of sleep and needing to type up a 5 page paper on a community professional who is involved with addiction means that I don't get much chance to workout before work today.

Plus I need to leave for work a little earlier to go to the just opened Whole Foods. I think it has been over 10 years that the mention of a Boise Whole Foods started. I think this one was supposed to open in 2007, but with the bad market at the time they really postponed it. But today was opening day.

I don't have to stock up and gorge on some of my favorite things when I go to the Seattle or PDX Whole Foods. I also don't need a membership like the Co-Op and I don't have to drive across town to go to Natural Grocers.Whole Foods makes me happy!

Yesterday, I decided to register for 2 different 5K's coming up.

I picked the Hot Chocolate 5K. It will be on Dec. 29th. This is not THE Hot Chocolate 15K race, but a local race put on by the directors that did the Idaho Wine Run. I am not happy that it cost $30 for a 5K. I am a cheapskate that way. But I am looking forward to the route that it is run on and that there is almost 200 people registered with over another month to go.

This HC5K will be my 12th race in 2012. That makes me super happy. 12 races in 2012!

I also signed up for the New Years Day 5K that I did this year also. I picked the shirt option last year, but this year I chose the no-shirt option. This race only cost me $17 instead of $25 with the shirt.

There is a good chance I will wear nearly the same thing as the NYD2012 race.

I am also looking for warm running tights. I already had the Oiselle Lesley tights suggested, but the size I need is not in stock. What do you like to wear for cold weather running tights?

How often do you go to Whole Foods? I don't have a local Trader Joe's, but hopefully one day!


  1. I love Whole Foods! But the closest one is 40 minutes away, so I really have to need things from there to make the trip. :) I have never been to a Trader Joes, but hope to one day!

  2. I love my NIKE pro compression tights. They are awesome!

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy Birthday to me.

You know how I celebrated the start of my birthday on midnight at work? (I actually am not taking my birthday off. Why can't all birthdays be on a weekend day?)

Burpees, pushups, squats, crunches. One for every year. So, I did 22 of each.

Ok, 24. ;-)

Sunday, for the BFs birthday, we had a shot of Wild Turkey. And our birthday shot (which I found out Vista Bar doesn't do free birthday shots - shame on them! Looks like Neurolux is my preferred birthday celebration location because I know they give free birthday shots) made me want to really enjoy another, but I refrained.

Actually, I think this weekend, I will be taking in a cocktail or 4 at the Modern.

I also made sure to sign up for lots of restaurants deals for birthday goodies this year because I like being a cheapskate. I like it when places give you a week (or all month) to use the goodies and not just on your birthday day. I don't want to go for a free b-day meal alone on my birthday at lunch, wh…

Kiss Me Organics Organic Dandelion Root Tea - With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Review

This post is sponsored by Kiss Me Organics and no other compensation was given.

I love Dandelion. They are not really a weed, but they have so many health benefits. The BF started eating them a few years ago. And he picked the first one this last week for me to eat. He has even gotten some of his guy friends to start picking them and eating them regularly. Serious! I am thankful for this tea because I don't have to eat them out of the yard, unless I want to. They are full of nothing but health. This tea tastes way better then a flower out in the yard!
