Friday Randoms

Here's a dozen things I've tweeted about/thought about over the last week - enjoy my random thoughts...  and Happy Friday!

1. Biggest news!  I officially signed up for my third half marathon and the second half of my runDisney Coast to Coast medal: The Wine and Dine Half Marathon in Florida in November. SO. EXCITED.  [If you are a new follower - welcome!!! and here was the first half of my Coast to Coast: the Tinker Bell Half Marathon in Cali.]  

2. In addition to running the half marathon, my parents and Mike will be running with me in the "Jingle Jungle 5k" that weekend.  Disney + Christmas ?? Oh yeah, I'm in!  Only downside, both races are on THE SAME DAY: 7 am and 10 pm, yeah I am going to be dead.  Good thing Mike and I will be going to a location TBD for a week of vacation after Disney!

3. Are you in need of new sheets?  Look on Groupon.  Mike and I bought 1200 thread count sheets a month or so back.  We got them in the mail and put them on this week.  THEY ARE HEAVEN.  They were $45, but considering we have bought a couple sets from IKEA or TJ Maxx for at least $25, it is a really good deal.  Oh, and a queen set came with 4 pillow cases - bonus!

4. There have been TWELVE snow days here in most of the cities in CT this year... those poor kids will be in school up to July!

5. Mike bought me an awesome "happy first day of spring" plaid shirt from American Eagle.  He had a 20% off birthday coupon, and I just loved the colors he picked!  Me getting a shirt with his coupon?  Seems backwards, but thanks, lovie! ;)

6. Going back to #2, does anyone know of a good Floridian/South Eastern US vacation spot?

7. We went out and bought a whole new patio set since we are anticipating spring soon.  We redid our patio last year [see that here], and haven't used it too much since then.  We are soooo excited to grow more grass this year and have a functional backyard! It was less than $200 for everything - Target is having a GREAT deal on patio sets right now, plus I have a Target Red Card which means I get an extra 5% off everything.

8. Hostess [I hope, I hope, I hope] might be coming back!  I'm sorry Twinkie lovers out there, but I am just praying Ring Dings and Devil Dogs [basically anything Drake's] will be back.  I'm running out of my [now expired] snacks I purchased last year!

9. I broke down and had fast food twice this week.  I had Taco Bell [both Doritos Locos Tacos] last Sunday and I stopped for a 4 piece McNugget on my way home on Tuesday #whoops. I know I'm not a great eater, but I barely ever eat fast food.  This was an anomaly, I promise!

10. After feeling bad about myself for having fast food twice, I went to Target and fell in love with the frozen fruit aisle.  I bought 3 different smoothies, so I can't wait to review and post about those next week.

11. Dave Matthews Band tickets go on sale today for their summer tour!  This will be my 8th [??, I think] DMB concert.  We all went last summer, and it was so fun!

12. My roommates and I are doing a fun Knockout Pool for March Madness in addition to our typical brackets.  Check out this article by Bill Simmons [Holy Cross grad - woot woot!!]; it's a really fun idea.  Wish me luck!

Woo hoo Disney! I really need to get my butt in gear and register for the Wine & Dine. I know a great southeastern vacation spot.. Charleston! Lol no but really? I would totally go to Key West or Naples.

YAY! so glad you decided to sign up for the Wine and Dine! As far as places to vacation down here, Well, there's always the Sipp! :) haha Or great places in Georgia, like Savannah, and they have mountains up North, or there's the city! There are plenty of places to vacation and it sounds like you'll be having a wonderful time! And those tacos look delicious!

That's exciting news about the Disney half marathon! Love the shirt, go Mike! I had taco bell for dinner last night... no regrets :) Hehe! Hope you have a GREAT weekend!

That's exciting about your race, but you are crazy to do two in one day! I love gulf shores in fl/al. Orange beach is beautiful and really laid back!

If you can ever get a chance, DMB always plays at the George Gorge in Washington for all 3 days during labor day weekend. It is amazing. I am also more than a little jealous of your next Disney Half. One of these days I will do it.
