Exciting news list time!

  1. My little brothers are 19 today! When did they get so old? Last time I checked they were still 8 years old and now they’re in college, where the heck does the time go?high school graduates
    They may be 19, but that’s okay, they still act like 8 year olds.twin egg yolksSide note, is ironic that I get a egg with twin yolks on my identical twin brothers birthday? I think so. So glad I got them too because they totally made up for the yolk I broke, whoopsies.
  2. My design got picked for a postcard my department is sending out to different Graphic Arts companies inviting them to a job/internship we’re having on campus in March. Whattttt!!! So excited when I found out. People in the industry are going to see my design! Eep! I had a “You like me! You really like me!” moment when I found out and I might have gone to the bathroom to do a little dance. Okay I definitely did!(Shameless self-promotion moment: if you’d like to see some of my design work, my portfolio is here: be.net/lgeddie)
  3. I’m now a Sweat Pink AmbassadorI got the e-mail this afternoon and I’m so excited to join the Sweat Pink Community! I let out an embarrassingly girly high-pitched squeal, luckily my other roommates weren’t there to witness it 🙂Photobucket
  4. Here is a re-enactment of my expression after finding out all this exciting news:excited faces
    I almost graced you guys with a video of my happy dance but I decided against that internet embarrassment and just stuck with pictures.

Additional exciting things:

  1. An incredibly sweaty spin class! There’s a spin class right before my Pilates class so I decided to check it out and support my fellow group fitness teachers, it was a tough but super fun class. The guy teaching is on the school cycle team so his workout was intense but I loved every second of it!
  2. My Pilates class went really well! Nothing special happened, the class just flowed really well, which always feels good.
  3. I just made some kale chips, they got a little burnt because I was busy watching Glee, but they were still pretty tasty.
  4. I survived my public speaking speech! There were a few rough moments but I made it through and I think I did pretty well!
  5. My apartment is restocked with coffee! FINALLY!

Brag time, what the most exciting news you’ve gotten lately?

Do you have an siblings? I’m the oldest of 3 and my brothers are identical twins.

Can’t Complain {MIMM}

Hey guys! I hope your Monday is going awesome.

(Thanks Katie for hosting!)

My Monday’s been pretty boring, but I can’t complain, I’ll take boring over stinky any day.

I can’t complain… about my pretty low-key weekend too. It snowed Friday morning then froze over that afternoon so I spent most of the weekend stranded in the apartment. Sometimes it feels pretty awesome to hang out in your PJs until 1 pm 🙂

I can’t complain… about my 8 mile run! A new PDR (fyi you’ll probably hear that every week until my 10-mile race!) It was tough and I thought about quitting approximately 28374 times, but I sucked it up and finished, even though that mean running back and forth across the park parking lot for the last 0.75 mile because the sun was going down and that was the only area with a street light, and I like not getting kidnapped. Did I mention it was 33 degrees out? I’m not sure where all this commitment came from but I like it.

I can’t complain… because I saw a beaver on my run yesterday!

I ran past it the first time and it didn’t even register in my head it was a beaver. Then I had to run back and get a picture (from a safe distance, beavers are vicious). I think he was drunk because he randomly fell over and then staggered off into the woods. I don’t know how a beaver would get drunk but that’s not the point.

I can’t complain… about this nut butter. The Earth Fare near me just started carrying Wild Squirrel nut butters and holy cow. Delicious. You need to keep me away from these things.

Wild Squirrel vanilla espresso almond butter

That would be Vanilla Espresso almond butter, can you think of a more perfect food? No. And yes I cut around all three side of the packet to get out every last smidgen of almond butter. Not ashamed.

Hey there Buddha.

I can’t complain… about Hello Kitty band-aids, they make everything better.

Though I will complain that I only have one left. Boo.

I can’t complain… about kale chips. Who can?

kale chips

Kale, olive oil, salt, pepper and nutritional yeast. Even my kale-hating roommate ate these. Success!

I can’t complain… about running because I’m thinking about signing up for this half-marathon in May. It’s a week before graduation and only 30 minutes away from Boone. I’m just trying not to let the elevation map freak me out.

What made your Monday marvelous?

What did you do this weekend?

What’s the craziest animal you’ve ever seen on a run?

P.S. I made a Facebook page for the blog!

Greens and Coffee Beans facebook page

I’m not so good at social media (hence my sad number of twitter followers) but it’d be pretty awesome if you liked the page. And I’ll work on figuring out how to use it.
