Making goals happen/Weekend Plans/Haircut

Monday, February 11, 2013

The other day I posted a blog about some of my goals (ie- pushups/situps, run a 5k with my mom, etc.) So the next day I was looking at different kinds of runs that I want to do at some point. There is a Dirty Girl run in Lincoln, NE in September that I'd really love to do.. but may wait until next year to do that one. It looks like fun anyways. But back to the point. I was telling my mom about these runs I was finding and she sent me a message with a 5k the hard way run that is in April.. a little too soon for someone with hardly any running. Then she suggested the Color Run in Omaha. If you've never seen what a color run is.. here is the link to a youtube video that kind of shows it. And here is a link to the run if anyone is interested.
o2UAHw It is at the end of May and I REALLY want to do it. In fact, I don't just WANT to do it. I already told my mom I WILL do it with her. I want to start getting in more running because I'd like to run a good part of it. I think it would be a good start to RUNNING a 5k with my mom.

And if you follow along with my blogs, you've probably seen that I will soon be celebrating my 6 year anniversary with my husband. We got married on Valentine's Day that year but are celebrating on the 15th and 16th. Jeremy took the 15th off so we could have 2 days to celebrate together. We reserved a 2 bedroom jacuzzi suite for 2 nights. Will be a nice break away from home. My mother-in-law is going to take the kids Friday night and my mom is going to take them on Saturday night. Kind of excited to get all dressed up for my husband in my new dress, shoes, do up my hair.

Did I mention I got a haircut yesterday? So much lighter and I love it! No more messy bun for awhile (which is all I ever did with my hair because it was so thick and poofy.) I kind of feel like it's a new haircut for a new me. Almost 80 pounds lost and I am definitely looking and feeling different. Probably another cut and some color when I am done. May do some color before then but we'll see.
Here is what it looks like straightened..

Here is what it will normally look like because my hair is so thick and wavy..

I am not quite sure what our weekend will bring.. but I do know we plan on bowling, playing games such as war and dice in the room, of course swimming and sitting in our jacuzzi, and eating some good food. We'll see what else happens. Olive Garden for one meal for sure.. I think we are going to do a carry out order and take it to our room so I can order a kids chicken alfredo for myself and so it won't be such a long wait for getting seated. I normally just order their soup. I absolutely love alfredo and since it is a special occasion I am going to indulge but don't want to be overwhelmed with the amount of food they put on a normal plate so that's why the kids order. I do that with most places we go. I think Jeremy wants to do Buffalo Wild Wings for our other main meal. Not necessarily romantic.. but it is something we both want and I've only eaten there once before. If you can't tell.. I am overly excited. I love my kids but looking forward to some MUCH NEEDED quality alone time with Jeremy. This usually only happens on our anniversary.

    You hair looks so lovely : ) I wish mine would go wavy like that, but it only has two options: straight or frizz. Sigh.
    Enjoy your break.
