Once Upon A Time (capitalization for full effect, obviously) I said I would be posting Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Something was in the air this week because I posted Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Getting crazy over here!
I’m feeling the more light-hearted, life posts lately so this is Thinking Out Loud and Friday Favorites combined.
I’m kind of obsessed with the Olympics…and the World Cup…and pretty much anything that involves America or sports. Since these things only come around every four years and I have no clue if I’ll still be blogging the next time (hopefully!), this is my shot to profess my love. Let me have it.
Earlier this week Susie posted about the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and it reminded me that I was kind of there, too! Kind of, as in, my parents went and I stayed at the hotel with my Nana. BUT I was in the vicinity! Small technicality. Throwback photo of my parents…
Other Olympic-related memories: 2008 started my affinity with Michael Phelps and I NEEDED to watch every one of his events. We went to Maine in the middle of that Olympics to go whitewater rafting and I remember running to the lodge at random hours to watch him swim. I even bought a shirt with his name on it…and I still own it.
I have such an admiration for the athletes and I’m looking forward to a great two weeks of hopefully Zika and dirty-water free activity. My favorite sports to watch: track and field, swimming and diving, gymnastics, basketball and beach volleyball. What are your favorite events?
Archie has gotten so big! He still doesn’t weigh much (despite loving his food), but he’s taller and broader. Other than going crazy from the hours of 4-6 p.m. and not sitting still for photos, he’s a very good dog. Rocco has taken a
liking tolerance to him, too.
They’re cute together :)
So what do we think of the new Instagram Stories? I was just getting a hang of Snapchat (@healthyishlife) and then they go and introduce this thing. It has been fun hearing people’s voices though! I’m not sure how often I’ll use it vs. Snapchat because, hello, no filters. Edited to add: apparently there are filters? How do I use them?
An important update from my post on Monday. I mentioned buying the Essie Gel Couture nail polish and the claim was it should last 14 days chip-free. I made it six and then all hell broke loose. Six days, including two times in the pool, daily showers and regular daily activity. I’m trying to justify the purchase to myself. It was only $12 so not a huge deal, but kind of a disappointment because I thought it was magical.
Have a great weekend! Check back next week for a fun workout and running update (long story).
