The nostalgia is strong with this one

Happy Friday you fab chaps!

Okay, first things first.

Can we all agree on the absolute awesomeness of this song?

I actually cannot stop listening to it. All this writing about my teenage years must have flipped a switch somewhere deep inside of me, because I have been rocking out to all the sweet tunes from yesteryear ALL THE LIVE-LONG DAY.

Now, if someone could just pass me my flared jeans and mini backpack, I’ll be off to get us some brown lipstick and giant silver hair clips.


Secondly, look what I purchased last night:


I cannot even remember the last time I had Popsicle sticks! I will be making these delicious, frozen noms all summer long.

I don’t know about you all, but I am much more a fan of the yogurt pop, than the traditional juice based treat, but I’m open to any tasty suggestions you might have when it comes to the art of the Popsicle.


Finally, things are just racing by, I’m having a hard time catching my breath or keeping my balance.

I went for a short run today after work, the first since my race this past weekend.

I felt great – my legs felt strong and my cardio easy. The only tiredness I experienced was just every-day, normal, “I woke up at six and worked all day before strapping on my runners” fatigue.

Speaking of flipped switches, the weather these past few days has been so unbelievably beautiful. I can smell spring in the air, and feeling the warmth of the sun on my winter-kissed limbs is a joy of which I will never, ever tire.

Tonight I am doing a show downtown, and then it is off to fete my brilliant friend Emily of Well Fed, Flat Broke on her spectacular thirty years on this great big ball of green and blue.

I am also hoping that Marc and I will have a chance to go see Jurassic Park this weekend, as well as have ample time to run about outside, like the two sun-starved children that we are.

Barbeques may also be included.

I cannot wait.

What is on all your agendas for the next two days?

I hope that whatever it is, the sweet spring sun will be shinning down on all of you.

  1. Whoa! Blast from the past with that popsicle tray! My mom used to just pour concentrated juices like, grape or orange, and they were quite delish in their simplicity. However, I’m sure there are a myriad of flavors and combinations to be had; oh the possibilities!
    I’ve been gearing up to run a memorial half marathon on the twenty-eighth of this month, so it’s been weeks of putting in long runs for me. I’ve done half marathons before, as well as just running by myself, and I must say it always feels so awesome to be in a group of hundreds of other runners. I’m glad you’ve recovered and back in those trainers. Are there any other races you’re planning to run this year?
    Don’t you feel like a bad A to be able to say “tonight I’m doing a show downtown…” You’re in it to win it girl!

  2. We are crazy popsicle making peeps here! Whatever we can get our hands on in large quantities we go with (think rhubarb and tomato)! I have found everything tastes pretty amazing frozen and in cute popsicle molds! I hope you have a great weekend Vanessa!
