Hello friends. Yes, yes, I’m alive. Sorry to keep prefacing my writing with “Hey, don’t worry, I didn’t croak between now and the last time you read.” This week was very busy – lots going on at work with events, staying late to work said events, and getting things together for designing our upcoming season brochure. I also work 3 shifts at my part-time job this weekend, and have to pack for a fun work-ish related Minneapolis get-a-way thing this Monday-Wednesday. I’m also planning to get a few workouts in, as well as going home to see The Hunger Games with my mom and Auntie. Phew!
Here are a few things I’ve been into this week:
- A) we could sing (At least sing that well. Gosh, they’re good!)
- B) we were British, and
- C) we all had dark, long, flowing locks.
Oh well. Can’t win them all. I hope you enjoy their beautiful harmonies and lovely video!
2.) My new haircut. This is actually an older picture (from about a month ago for our staff head shots) but my hair looks pretty similar since I only went in for a trim. Every time I go in for a cut, I’m more and more convinced that I’ll be rockin’ short hair for quite a while. I love it. In fact, I’m toying with going shorter. Look at my “Hair” Pinboard on Pinterest for some of my inspiration ideas for my next cut! Shorty short for summer. Whee!
3.) Running! I’ve been running quite a bit, and am up to approximately 5.5 miles as my longest run. Last week I hit a total of 23 miles pounded out. I’m still painfully slow, but I feel SO good after sweating for 60+ minutes. I’ve been watching episodes of The Biggest Loser on my phone via Hulu+, and I have to say… those trainers really know what they’re doing. It’s so motivating to push through those last miles while all of the contestants are doing their “last chance workout.” I’m kind of addicted.
Anyway, I’m actually headed BACK to work tonight, but this time as an audience member. We’re presenting this cool group called PROJECT Trio. They’re a classical trio of flute, bass, and cello, but they stir things up by putting a hip-hop/pop/jazz spin on traditional songs. Their flutist can beatbox. It’s insane! Check him out here:
Anyway, I actually have some posts planned for the next few days, so I won’t leave you hanging like I did in my last post. Oopsy!
