Five on a Friday

Okay let's talk about five completely random things that are rolling around in my head on this Friday! Come on, it'll be fun!

1. I'm still obsessed with my car. I'm trying hard not to talk about it too much, but it's so hard! I do want to post some more pictures eventually just so y'all can see how fun it is! In case you want to get one yourself of course. No bragging. Nope, not me. I'm not incredibly thrilled that I'm no longer driving the Tortoise or anything! Here's a sneak peek...via Instagram...duh

2. Fall is near. Not. I wish I could smell it, but quite frankly all I smell is sticky, hot, humid Houston. Not fall. Fall is actually something of a fairy tale that we dream about down in south Texas. If we're lucky, we can wear a jacket comfortably at Christmas. Oh and I don't mean comfortably as we won't be too cold, more like we won't be too warm in it! Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but some years, it really is like that! Here's what I'm dreaming of wearing - boots, scarves and sweaters:

3. Those of you that follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter already know that I'm counting down until Christmas {132 big deal}. Here are some other countdowns I have on my brain:

  • 13 days until Aggie football starts!
  • 16 days until Labor Day...hello 3 day weekend
  • 22 days until Texas A&M's first SEC home game!
  • 42 days until my birthday!!!
  • 58 days until the Packers play the Texans in Houston
  • 59 days until Andrea's due date - I'll fly out to Knoxville this day
  • 75 days until Halloween!

4. My first "long" group run is tomorrow morning! I'm so super excited. It's only a 5 miler this week, but by September 22nd it'll be 11 miles and by December 22nd it'll be 22 miles!

5. This weekend is tax free weekend here in Texas! I must say that one of the best things about Pennsylvania is that we didn't have sales tax on clothes {granted we had to pay state tax...gross!} Even though I probably don't need new clothes, I'm goin' shopping! There are always so many great sales tax free weekend that I just don't want to miss. The hubs and I are planning on going to the outlet malls in Cypress on Saturday after out run. I'm pumped. Kind of hoping to score some new stuff! I really want a pair of tennis shoes to wear when I'm not running. I like to keep my running shoes for running only and use my old ones for other activities, but my old ones are just about dead now!

Maybe something fun like these!

Well that's really all I've got today. Nothing too exciting. Just a few tid bits here and there! Buy hey, at least it's Friday!!! Hope y'all have a wonderful Friday and a fun weekend! Any fun weekend plans???

Until next time...
With love and God bless,
