Five on Friday!!

Good Morn!

Today I'm linking up with some lovely ladies to do 5 on Friday.

1- Next Saturday is my 25k!  Super excited and a little nervous... I would love to stay under 9 minute mile average, but we will see what happens.  My 12 mile training run was INCREDIBLE!  So I'm hoping to have that feeling with this run, too.

2- My mom and I are going to a Mother/Daughter Banquet tonight at church.  The last time we went to a banquet was when I was 6 and we wore matching floral dresses.  So tonight we are going to coordinate our outfits.  We are going to wear these.

Not completely matching, but coordinating at my Grandparent's 60th anniversary
3- I'm helping with Girls on the Run at school and the girls are just so precious and we are having such a great time training for a 5k :)

4-I flew a kite for the first time in my entire life last weekend at the beach!  Hubby got a ton of pictures of me, but here is one of my love flying the kite.  Not a great moment to catch, but we had a lot of fun!

5- Super pumped for the weekend!  My dad and I are going to try to go fishing if the weather cooperates :)  And I'm hoping to meet my friend's brand new puppy.

Have a great weekend!!

Favorite Things Link Up!

Good Morn!! 

I am linking up with Beauty and the Greek for this month's These are my Favorite Things!

Who's excited for MAY?????? I sure am!  So here goes!

1.  Ramen noodles... totally forgot about this little meal until I decided to save a TON of money for my lunches every day.  Remember we are trying to spend as little money as possible, and I saw ramen and it brought back memories of college and for 33 cents I thought I'd give them another try and I love eating it!  So I'll take a pack of ramen, some veggies, and a granola bar for lunch and I'm good.

2. Running Club- We joined a running club in our town and I am loving it!!  There are some pretty fast runners there and so hubby loves it because it challenges him and I am always in the back trying to keep up.  Usually there's another girl there that keeps me company, but last night I was the only girl to stick around, so the boys took turns staying back with me... and the run still kicked my butt!  Mile repeats with hill work!!  It's good for me though!

3- Garmin Forerunner 10- This is always one of my favorites!  I don't know what I'd do without my GPS watch.  It has for sure paid for itself with how much I use it.  And I got it for a great deal.  I've had it for almost a year now and it's such an awesome tool to have.

4- Dunkin Donuts Jelly Donut Coffee- We used to use our Keurig all the time, but I realized how much money we were spending on coffee each month so we bought a cheap $15.00 coffeemaker and started using it and it does take more time to brew coffee, but I feel we have more variety with coffee and I love this jelly donut flavor!  Delicious!

5- NYX Glossy Brown Eyeliner- I am loving NYX makeup.  I've tried a highlighter, blush, and the eyeliner, and they are all great products, but the eyeliner stays on all day just like my Clinique eyeliner I used to buy.  And the whole line is pretty inexpensive :) 

YAY FOR MAY!! The weather is getting warmer and I have a teeny, tiny, mini tan from running which seriously makes me so happy!! 

What are your favorite things this month?
