Friday Favorites – Sappy Stuff, The Royals and more!

I know… I know… I’m checking in pretty late for Friday Favorites. I got off work a bit early today and really had the urge to write a blog post, so here we are. I’ve really been struggling to keep up with blogging on a regular basis, as I’m sure you can tell, since I’ve moved and started a new job but I’m not giving up yet.

Being a part of the blogging community is something that I really enjoy and it makes me happy, despite the fact that I usually can’t fathom staring at a computer screen any longer by the time I make it home at the end of the day. On top of this being something that I enjoy, I’ve recently started to realize that it is actually something that means something to other people. Who knew?!?!

Which leads me to my first favorite of the day…

So That Happened… Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Hey there!

Congrats on making it to Thursday! That’s no small feat by any means and definitely deserves a congrats and a pat on the back in my book. Since I’m not there to do it, raise your arm up in the air and give yourself a nice big pat on the back. PERFECT!

Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get into my contribution to Thinking Out Loud Thursday, hosted by Amanda at Running With Spoons where I talk about all things random and at the top of my mind right now. Let’s dig in!

Seahawks 5k Race Recap

Hey there!

I’m coming to you all a little late with my recap of the Seahawks 5k, but better late than never right? I signed up for this race a few months ago thinking I would be more back to normal than I actually ended up being when I made it to the start line. I didn’t go into this race with high hopes or expectations of being able to run the entire race, since the injuries from my car accident have been really aggravated lately so I was just planning to take it easy and not push things too hard. Not really my idea of a great 5k experience, but you do what you’ve gotta do, right?

I’ve never sweat so much watching someone else workout in my life…

OH.MY.GOSH. Seriously. I can’t even get over the Seahawks vs. Packers game. I’ve never sweat so much watching someone else work out in my life! I’ve also never screamed so much at a TV in my life. What a game. Like seriously though. What a game. Continue reading

A Look Back At 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wasn’t originally planning on doing a year in review recap since I didn’t start A Couple of Dashes until August, but after reading a few by other bloggers (Lake Shore Runner, Meals and Miles and Run Eat Repeat), I decided I would be sad if I didn’t have one to look back at next year. My year was filled with some crazy highs and lows. I lost some old friends and made some new ones, let go of some dreams that could never fully make it to fruition, but also saw some dreams I never could have imagined before come true. So here’s a look back at all the shenanigans I got into in 2014! Let’s get to it!

Go HAWKS and Smelly Fridges!

Hello All!

This morning I was fully expecting to be running a little late for work because I decided I absolutely could not sit at work for another second with our stinky fridge and I NEEDED to stop at the grocery store to get some baking soda to try to remedy the problem. We’ve cleaned it out completely and it still smells so horrible that the sticky smell made it’s way out into the hallway yesterday. EEEEEKKKK! We had to spray the office with Lysol spray and turn all our fans on overnight to try to clear out the smell! Horrible, I know! I’m hoping this will make it better!
