What its not april anymore?

So April was kinda a crapshoot. Especially for me blogging. So I apologize for all 2 of you that actually read this thing.

Honestly though? What happened to April. Thats supposed to be a long month right? I'm still stuck in the march phase. Anyways now its May. I've decided April didn't happen. I don't think I even did anything in April. I can't even remember the month. Didn't happen.

Oh wait, I spent basically the entire month of April with a cold. Awesome.

I did do some exciting things in my absence though!

Last weekend James and I walked/ran a 10k for the Shane Geoghegan Trust/ our friend Mark who is Attempting the Summit of Everest right now!

We bought our plane tickets for America!! (thats right people, in one month I will be stateside woot woot!)

We got patio furniture.....and a grill. I almost feel like an adult. Seasonal furniture. For the 3 nice days of weather that we get here in Ireland. There will be pictures. Most likely of us in coats pretending to be warm.

Good Friday, which my friends refer to as Great Friday, was amazing. I will have to explain the history of Great Friday in our circle of friends and why it is pretty much Christmas, fourth of July and my birthday all rolled into one ball of awesome.

Some not so exciting things would be like the time my car, The Jellybean of Death, tried to do me in.

Also I started the Couch to 5K program- yesterday was day one, and honestly it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I heard a lot of people say that it was pretty grueling the first week, but i felt really good after I finished my 20 minutes. Here's to hoping the rest of the week goes as good and that I can keep up with all nine weeks of the program!

And lastly this is my last few days of being 25. My big 2-6 is Saturday. I'm starting to feel the pinch of time. I KNOW I KNOW I am young, but im just now getting to the age where I'm not so over the moon about the prospect of turning another year older. Mostly, I'm looking forward to a guilt free day full of cake. Cause calories don't count on your birthday.


  1. Look at you Ms. Runner! Congrats on completing the 10K, I'm still trying not to die while speed walking a mile lol.

    Cant wait to see photos of you guys pretending to be warm, I wish you'd send some of your fresh weather to CA. It was 96 degrees here yesterday, I almost died of heat stroke haha. And I hope you have the happiest of birthdays...have fun eating lots of cake :)

  2. 96 degrees??? thats warmer than it EVER gets here. I DREAM of 96 degrees lol! We were actually outside in our winter coats this afternoon drinking a beer to celebrate james's end of semester haha!

    and just keep doing the speed walking, it gets easier even though it doesn't seem like it. I say this as i sit on the couch dying after my second day of couch to 5k
