Fun Facts Friday - Stylish Blogger Award

Thankful Friday
TGIF my friends. Today is my rest day. I am happy to say that my IT band is not sore at all from my run or the weights yesterday. Definitely something to be super thankful about on this Friday. As I mentioned, my sis is coming up, so that's another reason to be thankful.

Tonight will be Pizza Friday. I picked up Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza mix for my sister based on recommendations from a few GF blogger friends. I'll be sure to let you guys know how it ranks compared to the Bisquick mix we used the last time.

Fun Facts Friday - Stylish Blogger Award

This morning I found out that I received a blogger award. Thank you so much Meghan @ Cooking. In. College! You're always such a sweetheart. The timing is perfect for Fun Facts Friday.

To accept this award there are 4 rules:
  1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award onto 2 bloggers you have recently discovered and think are fantastic.
  4.  Contact the bloggers you picked and let them know they won!

7 things about me
  1. I'm fairly short - 5'2".
  2. My thumbs have weird joints that pop in and out, meaning I can't bend them back like most people.
  3. While I no longer bite my nails, I have a horrible habit of picking at my cuticles, especially when nervous or anxious.
  4. When I was a kid, I hated having red hair.
  5. I think I'm a shopaholic.
  6. I hoard hard back books.
  7. As a side venture, I'd love to have a doggy bakery.

So here are 2 new(ish) blogs that I follow:
Joslyn @ Miss Fit Bliss
Erica @ Itzy's Kitchen

So, while I'm passing this on to two fabulous bloggers that I have recently discovered, I would love to hear a few fun facts about you. Anything fun you care to share???? Any new blogs you've recently discovered?

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …

Jewelry and Overcoming the Fear of Failure

I guess I can blame this little hobby on Pinterest - jewelry making. More specifically, metal-stamped jewelry. Wasting time, skimming through Pinterest or seeing people posting pics of metal-stamped bracelets or necklaces, I thought, "hey, surely I can do that."

So I started pinning ideas, looking up how-to videos, ordering the tools. Boxes of tools, gadgets and goods started arriving on the daily. I know my husband was really excited. Yep, I was going to do this!

I felt like the child set free in a toy store. I didn't even know where to begin exactly. But I had some ideas. Lots and lots of ideas. I'm an idea girl as you'll soon learn. I set out my tools of the trade, all neat and tidy on my kitchen table ready to begin. Luckily, my husband who sits back and watches stepped in with some ideas on ways I could practice the stamping without using the more expensive washers and bars I'd so eagerly purchased. Smart man.

What I didn't take into consideration wa…
