A Lil Round Up

I got lots I've been thinking on but no real sentences formed yet. Don't you hate when that happens? I do have enough wits about me for a list! Yippe!

1. Happy New Boobies Ami! Read about her follow up here.

2. It's been a year and a day since my own surgery, if you wanna relive the wing be gone magic it's here.

3. I L-O-V-E this rebuttal to the infamous Dove video making the rounds. Yes, in theory it's cool, but what's even cooler is not emphasizing that beauty is the most important thing that matters.

4. I am thinking about doing this. I know some of you have done half marathons. Tell me everything and I mean literally everything pretty please.

5. Ami over at Running Healthy wrote one of the most beautifully written emotionally raw honest entries about her history. It's one of those you love/hate. Love the honesty and the writing, hate the actions of those it's about.

6. Thanks to my friend Alexis, I get to see Amar'e Stoudemire of the Knicks tonight in the flesh. I am so gonna get a restraining order thrown at me, #worthit.

7. Really love this on being weird, and she's a delight.

8. Ugh, Boston. What is there to say? Unbelievably tragic. I have lots of friends in Boston and have thought of them all week. My friend Olivia who used to teach me yoga, as usual overwhelmed me with her kick ass attitude. She left NY moved back to Boston, started a theater company, went back to school and still teaches yoga. That's the quick version. After the events in Boston she very quickly used her various social media outlets to show support to those affected, and fundraise. That's how the people of Boston roll. They are made of stern and tough stuff that will not bend to cowardly violence.

9. Old news, but still fascinating.

10. R. Kelly makes everything better.  Or at least more amusing.


  1. AMEN to number 3. And I demand details on number 6.

    PS -- Wedding photos coming your way in a few days! Just waiting on the online gallery link.

    1. My heart nearly burst last night. It was amazing. I was like 3 feet away from my Knicks heroes. So much fun. The doc was good to AND I have tickets to the first play off game tomorrow. Seriously, if nothing else in my life is going right my knicks love is.

      CANNOT WAIT to see the wedding photos. The lil teaser you put up, was amazing. I can't wait to see the whole shebang.

  2. Omg are you kidding?! A half marathon in Iceland! You are the coolest! If I wasn't already planning on being in England at that time I would totally sign up for that!

    I don't know everything, but what I do know about running a half is that it's amazing! It's just the perfect amount if miles to feel free and amazing! But you must train properly. It's very important. There are some great programs to follow online. It's also really important to find the best shoe for you. Figure out if you do better with a shoe with a lot of support or a shoe that's more like running barefoot. I personally prefer a more stable supportive shoe. I have less chance of blisters and knee problems that way.

    Hope I gave some good info. Have a good one girly! Xx

    1. Iceland Air lets you have a free layover there on European flights just sayin'....Thank you for the tips. Starting to run more the past few weeks I have learned I definitely need new sneakers. Muscles I didn't even know existed in my legs hurt! Tell me that goes away please....

  3. good grief is it already a year since your surgery! wow, I bet you're still loving the results.

    A half marathon - brave woman :-)

    1. I can't believe it's been a year either. Crazy! Yeah the half...I might have lost my mind :)
