Home Free

OK, as we all know homes are not free. Today we’re closing on our townhouse. GAH! (I don’t know what sound that is, but it’s really excited).

Last weekend I ran a 5k for the Komen Race for the Cure. It was pouring that morning, it was pretty muddy getting through registration, but luckily it cleared up by the time the race started. Great group of people to run with and plenty of cheerleaders along the route (literally, there were squads of little junior cheerleaders, they were freakin’ adorable). I didn’t finish in under 30:00 like I wanted, but I actually won something! I entered in a drawing at the New Balance sponsor table and won a free pair of shoes and a jacket. Now all I have to do is wait patiently for 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.

Jason’s mom is in town for the weekend, her birthday is tomorrow and I’ve got a work picnic to run, then we’re planning on moving most of our stuff on Sunday. Good thing I’m taking Monday off.

Happy Friday everyone!

I think the "GAH" is a ripoff of Ellen's "Kah".

Nice job on the Komen run! That's great! You left a very nice comment on my blog a while ago, which I just now found (I'm a lazy blogger sometimes). So here's a delayed 'thank you' for the comment and a HUGE congrats on your run!!!

Hello! Nice to see some finnish language in my blog-comments! Do you have lived in Finland? That what you said at you are missing that mushroom and berry picking, I like also those activites in summer. I think I`m going to picking some blueberries in late summer(augusti) when they are ready to pick up :)
You have also nice blog, tasty looking food pictures and lovely dog! See yo!
