So a few weeks ago, when I was hanging out with my cousins, there was mention of Saint Patrick’s Day festivities, involving a limo something, something, something. All I heard was limo, and in typical Emmarie fashion, blurted out “Whaatt?? Why didn’t you invite me?”.
My family, being the awesome people they are, graciously invited me and Adam to crash their SPD Parade activities.
We didn’t catch much of the parade at all, but that was fine by me, I was having a great time hanging out with my family, and some new friends.
Amongst the tons of parade-goers, there was a man walking around with a green fake mustache. I screamed at him “I LIKE YOUR MUSTACHE”, I think I was being a smart ass, but imagine my surprise when the man whipped around a pulled out a pack of fake green mustaches, he gave one to me….AND IT WAS ON!!!
We got home and I passed out on the couch, those Irish Car Bombs are NO JOKE!!
I had such a blast all decked in green!!
Hope you guys all had a great Saint Patrick’s Day weekend. I gotta tell you…all this Irish celebrating has me SO PUMPED for Dyngus Day!!
As I’ve mentioned before, I am loving the spinning classes I’m taking. In an effort to make up for the lack of exercise since Friday, I thought I’d go all “gung-ho” and take 2 classes yesterday, back to back.
I’m not quite sure how that idea popped into my head, but I was going with it.
After my two hours were up, my knee caps flew off and shattered the mirrors in the spinning room. I picked up my caps, and headed home. I was slightly concerned that I had over done it. I was smiling, and proud of myself, but in the back of my mind, I just kept thinking…
“GURL, you are gonna regret this in the morning.”
Adam was seriously concerned about me and my missing knee caps, but I awoke this morning feeling great!
I also signed up for an 8 week class at my gym. The class is described as a “HARD CORE, in your face bootcamp that consists of a combination of strength training, cardio, plyometrics, core exercises, and flexibility for all ages, shapes and sizes”.
They put “hard core” in caps, not me.
I was thinking that I should do more group-type classes, along the lines of Crossfit, but a touch less insane.
Plus, I figured nothing will get me moving more than a class full of other women and they’re judging eyes.
Right? Women judge! Don’t try and tell me you don’t, ’cause you do, and you know it!
In other useless news: I have a daily calendar at my desk. Ya know the ones, a 365-er, where each day is a different picture. I like to get one every year, a few years ago I had “The Office” quotes, and last years was Boston Terrier puppies. This years winner was “Awkward Family Photos”.
I know they sell ones that are “Brain Teasers” or Jeopardy questions or ones that make me think, but I’m a simple gal, and I just want to giggle at my daily calendar.
Behold the “Awkward Family Photo” for today, Thursday, March 15th.
How’s that for a simple giggle?
*Also, my knee caps are still attached, if you thought I was serious, well, then I just feel bad for you, and your lack of a sense of sarcasm.
**And another thing, I use run-on sentences, if you’re not ok with that, well, then that’s just too bad.
I wonder how many people start blogs, only to find themselves a few months in with a lack of writing material. I’ll let you chew on that for another 2.5 weeks.
I’ll come back… I promise.
I’m finding that I don’t have anything to write about. I suppose I could bore you with another recap of my drunken hot-mess-ness, but even that’s getting old.
Well, old to read, not old to do.
So, hold tight friends, I promise I’ll
try to make the wait worth your while.
And sorry all these ecards are pink.
