Random Thursday - 5 Fun Facts About Me

I'm so late for Random Thursday but better late then never amiright!?



Link up with us, we're awesome.

This weeks topic is...




[1]
I started running March 31st this year because I hated the way I looked/felt on my birthday and decided it wasn't doing anything good to complain about it whilst devouring 18 chocolate bars.
I wouldn't say I'm obsessed but I couldn't imagine never running/working out again.

[2]
I love getting mail. I think the reason I sign up for so many swaps is so that I can get something pretty at my door.

[3]
I have a tramp stamp. Spur of the moment idea, walked in, pointed at a stupid flower and said "that one please."
You would think I regret it but I don't like to regret things. Not even after my dad called it a hooker sticker.



[4]
My sister is trying to train me to be more touchy feely. I wish I was kidding but she legit touches me every chance she gets.

[5]
I blogged everyday in December (until Christmas) and now I want to do it everyday in June! Who's with me? I was thinking of making a link up and if you post in June (anything at all!) you can link up and it will be great way to see a bunch of random posts.

Your turn!

I'm stealing Pinterest ideas.

I only wish my drawers looked like this. I swear I buy enough plastic dishes from the dollar store but it usually only lasts a week or so.

next up is this amazingness. the measurements inside the door are such a good idea and not that I ever get mail but I really really want a shutter for my letters?

BUT it is a training tuesday day!

 

 moving on.  I vlogged this week because I ran my first 5k!  I've been saying from the beginning that I know almost everyone thinks 5k is nothing but not to this chick.  I was super pumped.  and disgusting looking.  have fun watching my tomato face.

whoops!

so guess what I did everybody!  I drank too much wine, thought I was on my personal twitter and started adding a bunch of people I know in real life with my blog twitter.  whoops!

anyways I was having a complete panic attack but have since decided to not give an eff anymore.
I got the sweetest email from one of my besties who said she loved my blog and was super pumped about my mistake!  long story short, welcome to my blog Mal and any other real life people who have found it.

this week I want you to tell me all about your...


so I was browsing through pinterest as per usual and found a bunch of things I pinned forever ago and since I still love them


this is hands down my dream bath.  I could live in the bath.  it is not unusual for me to crawl into one for 3+ hours.  no joke.

and can we just take a minute and think about how awesome this would be in your basement...


these two remind me of a rustic feel or like antique-y or something.  I dunno but I love em!

  

I tried to find my dream kitchen but I couldn't.  it would be big and open and functioning.  I plan on baking a million times over with any offspring I may produce.  with a huge fridge I can cover with all the shit they'll take home from daycare!

okay I just went on a pinning spree and can't post them all!  check out the rest here and then tell me what you would put in your dream home and link up below!

random thursday - confessional: tell a secret

this week's topic...



I totally struggled with this topic! luckily I messed up the scheduling of my post and now get to re-write it!

so my top secret secret is that I have no idea how to react to other people's feelings.

now, I wouldn't consider myself a heartless bitch or anything but sometimes I might come off as one! when people cry in front of me I often stand there awkwardly questioning whether or not I need to hug them (also, hugs. not my thing. that's another story).

I have no idea why I am like this, I was loved plenty as a child but for some reason feelings and emotions are just not my thing!

funny story. second year university group of girls who've hung out together since first year was kind of separating from each other so a few of them called a group meeting in one of their rooms so we could all sit around and discuss our feelings.
nope, not kidding.

wanna know what I did? stared out the window trying to determine if I could safely jump.

when it was my turn to tell them how I felt I told them it was the most ridiculous thing in the world to sit in a room crying because 2 people when to breakfast without the rest of the group.

training tuesday

woo for another training tuesday!


no vlog this week but I had a pretty good week!

tuesday
TRX, my new found love.

wednesday
I did a 13x1 sprint for 26 minutes. freaking loved it! ended up going 5.8 kms.


thursday
spin class.  yup, my cooter still hurts.

friday
coworker and I went out at lunch time to a trail right by work and did a sort of bootcamp workout.
we'd do trade offs on different exercises for 45 seconds each.  if you have any ideas for outdoor workouts let me know!  it turned out to be so much fun!

saturday
not much of anything.  just the ab challenge.

sunday
the best day!  went on a 5k walk followed by an hour at the park with my sister and niece and then did a 10k bike ride with my dad!


monday
4k run in the BEAUTFUL outdoors!!  sooo nice out this weekend/monday I couldn't get enough!



so that's about it for my training tuesday but I do have a question, what's your opinions on a heart rate monitor?  I've been thinking about getting one but they are kind of an investment so I would love what you think.  do you have one?  love it, hate it?  ever use it?

happy tuesday!

I used the awesome polyvore to create this.  I'm new to this polyvore crap so cut me some slack if it sucks!


spring apparel

1.  casual tee.
2.  floral scarf.  can't get enough!
3.  coloured jeans!  new found love.  I only have one pair, almost this exact colour that I wish I could wear everyday.  but that's frowned upon.
4.  shades.  I got the knock of ray-ban style ones so they look kind of like this..
5.  bright coloured purse.  I need to stop buying purses but I love this one!  aldo, as per usual.
6.  toms toms toms toms toms!!!  I bought ones that look like these (the walmart version but still awesome).

what's your go-to spring apparel??  link up below.
