I have a frenemy, and its name is running. To say I love running would be a lie. I love that it keeps me moving, tones my body, and the feeling when I am done, but the actual running itself sucks. I hate being out of breathe and the occasional pain it causes when I push myself too hard.  I just recently started running when someone in my work was recruiting for a race called Ragnar that would be in October 2011. Check out the video if you haven't heard of Ragnar its pretty amazing. I am still going through withdraws.

Keep in mind that was my first race. My next race was a 5k, then I did a 1/2 marathon. Yeah I am a bit crazy I know, but I am going back and going to start training the right way. My goal is to do a race each month just so I can keep running so I can be better prepared for the Ragnar and other 1/2 marathons and who knows maybe build up to a marathon.

Hash Brown Casserole -Saturday

Taco Ring-Sunday

Black Bean Pizza-Monday

Justin Timberlake

We all have celebrity crushes, there is even a new TV show Love Bites about celebrity crushes. My teenage years all the boy bands were huge, N*Sync, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, etc. but I wasn't really into them especially Justin Timberlake. All my friends were swoon over them and imaging getting married and having kids with them while I played Tragic Kingdom on repeat. Recently though I have developed a crush on Mr. JT himself. Really I don't know what it is about him, but something has changed. My its because his style has changed or my taste have changed, but I can watch any of movies and listen to his play list on Youtube for hours. How could you not find this attractive??

To say the least I am very excited for his new movie.

Nail Art!!

So I found a pretty amazing blog the other day and you should take a look. Melissa did a different nail design each day for a complete year. She is done with her project but it was still pretty inspiring and she still keeps up with her blog. I am the type of girl that never paints her nails mainly because they chip about 5 min after I paint them, but I decided to give it a try and I am pretty please with the results.

Now I didn't clean the sides or anything but I was pretty impressed with them hopefully they will last.

Billboard Awards!!

So I was still sick but when else do you have the chance to go to the Billboard Awards. Our seat were high but it was still an amazing show and the crowd had a lot of fun. The exciting part about the Billboard Awards is that you don't know exactly who is performing because they want to have some surprises, ex Britney Spears (even though I knew she was going to perform), Neil Diamond, Travis Parker among many others.

Now that we know that we can actually get tickets to award shows, next year we will hopefully get better seats. I would post more pictures but you can't really see anything from them.

I think my body has picked the worse time to decide to have its butt kicked by allergies. When my allergies start acting up it can be really bad, my throat burns, I get earaches, and my nose either runs or is so stuffy I can't breathe.
I have to get better by Sunday because we are going to the Billboard Awards! Our seats our in the nosebleed section but I don't really care, I think it will be amazing.

Nap time!
