Friday! Here you are!  Was it just me, or was this the longest week ever?  Maye time is starting to slow down because it's almost Christmas time to open presents, or maybe I'm just not used to working five whole entire days a week.  Yeah, that seems more likely.  Anyway, the rest of the country you can now stop hating us/congratulate us down here in Florida because we're finally starting to pretend to join in on the Fall/Winter weather.  Well, our 55 degree version of it anyway.  I'm usually not a big fan of any temperature under 80 degrees, but since I lost my mind and signed up for a half marathon I've had to start running a lot more than usual, and I need Florida to stop trying to give me a heat stroke.  I've actually been pretty impressed with myself while training for that bad boy.  I woke up Monday morning with a goal of running five miles and finally called it quits after seven.

And luckily I didn't feel like I was going to die afterwards.  I mean, it wasn't the easiest thing I've ever done, but I can definitely see getting myself up to the big 13.1 miles by March.  Plus, I have my super supportive boyfriend on my side.  Sure he shows his support by telling me I need more carbohydrates and then feeding me McFlurries and apple pies to meet that demand, but it's support nonetheless.

Anyway, I really hope I kick this half marathon's ass and then start running them left and right, but I'll more than likely finish and swear to never put myself through that again.   No more signing up for shit when I'm a little buzzed.  It makes me think I can do stuff that will most definitely end in tears and blood. 
We'll see.

I did take a nice little break from running yesterday to do some big things.  And by big things, I mean I got some bangs. 

I went in and told the guy, 'I've had bangs before and I hated them, but I want them again and I want to like them'.  I'm sure he loved me.  But, he made it happen, and I love him for it.  The boyfriend even took notice.  I usually have to actually have my hair cut in front of him for him to even realize something is different.  This time, he walked in the house after work and said 'Oh wow, those actually look really good'.
Ummm, thanks?  We're only 3 1/2 years into the relationship, he hasn't quite gotten the whole 'compliment' thing down.  But he's just saying what I was thinking.  I didn't really think they would work out and I would spend the next six-ish weeks with them pulled back waiting for them to grow out, but dammit they do actually look good.

Annnnd now you're caught up with me.  Lots of running and rocking some bangs.  Actually, something else awesome is happening:  Today is the birthday of one of my favorite people in the world.

Happy Birthday to my Jennas!! I miss you and love you and hope you have an amazing birthday.  If you're reading this, don't forget to tell me how awesome my bangs look again.

Also, my night job really paid off last night, because while most of you suckers were snoozing, Queen Bey released a new album, and it's just as amazing as you would expect some sneaky, top secret album from Mrs. Carter to be.

You snooze you lose.
