I got flowers from Bouqs! And ate a grilled cheese.

I went to lunch with a friend today. And I had this, which was more delicious than it looks. Swiss cheese, ham, dill pickles, special sauce, grilled to warm yummy gooey perfection. I called it carb loading for my long run.

I came home from lunch and had to wander around the house to find this little guy:

We used to find him asleep on Princess Grace's bed all the time, but now that she has her own room, she has a different bed that is higher off the ground, so I think he's afraid to jump up without being able to see what he's doing. (For those of you new to the blog, Rowdy doesn't have eyes. We had to have them removed several years ago after he developed cataracts and glaucoma and slowly went blind.)

So since he couldn't get on her bed, he found her blanket on the floor, which wasn't even in her room. What you can't see is that there were several other blankets on the floor, but they were all Ellie's. He is clearly very attached to the Princess, who he sleeps with every night.

I also came home from lunch to this box at my front door. And inside were these:

This is the Hot Lava bouquet. It is my first Bouqs delivery, but won't be my last. The flowers from Bouqs are cut the day they are ordered and delivered 2-4 days later. They have the most incredible selection of so many beautiful bouquets that are only $40 with shipping included. Or you can double the size of the bouquet for just $10 more! And the ordering process is so simple. And everyone loves flowers. It's a no brainer. Order flowers from Bouqs.

And now I'm off to put that grilled cheese to good use with my long run. Happy Friday everyone!

What is your favorite flower? My favorite are tulips, but I also love roses.

What are your favorite grilled cheese additions?


  1. Sweet little Rowdy! He is the best dog ever! That sandwich sounds favorite is ham and cheese on sourdough. I love roses, tulips and sunflowers! :-)

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
