Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Thursday Things, 12 Feb 15

The Aerogarden is doing fantastically.

Mint is a late bloomer

Except the blasted mint.

To say it’s a late bloomer would be an understatement.

It’s pretty much the herb I wanted most, too.

Figures as much.

Last weekend I thought I might just up and die right there at the gym for all the patrons to see.

I completed a good resistance workout, and then decided to quickly hit the elliptical.

I usually like to gradually increase the crossramp and really work to keep my heart rate up.

About 20 minutes in, I was dripping in sweat, and I was working double time.

Turns out I was increasing the resistance instead of the crossramp. Ha

Speaking of workouts, last weekend Will and I went to the park to enjoy the warmer weather.

Long talks at the park (and a secret selfie I took of the mister 😊)

We sat and talked and watched the kids playing.

Will looked over at me and asked, “Remember when we were kids and running was actually something we did for fun?”

πŸ˜‚

Totally killed me.

I remember the days when I was a kid and would run just because it was something fun.

While I have my moments, I can pretty much say I no longer consider running “something fun to do.”

Soo what are you doing for Valentine’s Day?

Do you love it? Hate it? Do tell.

Will and I aren’t huge celebrators, but we do acknowledge the day.

We don’t get crazy with gifts, either. Although, my sneaky husband did decide to buy me the rest of our bedding accessories for the new bedspread we bought last year. It wasn’t cheap and I was very touched by his thoughtfulness!

He also surprised me with the first season of The Americans. Anyone watch this?

My parents love it, and since it’s set in the 80s, I kind of figured I would too.

So yeah.

We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but apparently Will forgot.

As for going out on Valentine’s Day, don’t enjoy crowds or waiting forever at places in our old age, so we will cozy up on the couch Saturday night and let you guys have a night on the town without old fogeys cramping your style. smile

It only seemed right that today’s TBT pic be Valentine’s Day related.

Brittny-Valentines day OU cake-2005

This was our first married Valentine’s Day in 2005.

Look at that baby face!

I bought Will a cute Valentine cake as well as some red OU oakleys.

Which, surprisingly, he didn’t like because they fit weird (according to him).

Yes, I still remember.

And yes, it’s really me in that picture.

Remember that one time we all got crazy and dyed our hair RED!?!

Yeah…

In this week’s “Food Lately” post, I failed to mention the amount of peanut butter and jelly toast I’ve been eating.

It’s out of control, y’all.

That’s it for now.  I sure hope you’ll check in tomorrow.

Anything you care to share?
