I found this on a friend’s Facebook wall. It is so true. So true.
I have so much to tell you since my last post – It has been ages ago. But while you are waiting for that little ditty, I wanted to share with you this quote I stumbled upon recently:
“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute – even when the waters get deep, and dark.” - N’tima
*And no, there are no wedding announcements coming.
I was recently sent the following link titled “Surviving Whole Foods” written by Kelly MacLean, a stand-up comic/writer/actress/person. If you haven’t yet read it and are looking to be amused, please check it out.
I literally laughed out loud. Mainly, because everything she wrote I related to immediately. As someone that has dietary restrictions, I go to Whole Foods on occasion looking for that one item that doesn’t have gluten/dairy/goodness and is only sold in aisle 5 at Whole Foods. (Personally, I am more of a Trader Joe’s kind of lady.)
I have seen the people that frequent there, I have interacted with their personalities, and I have had those discussions with friends (and friends of friends) about the food/natural food phenomenon that has swept our country.
With today’s society so concerned about all the stuff that we put into our body, it is nice to step back and laugh at how our actions have transformed into this huge pile of au natural judgement in your local grocery aisles.
I’ll still hop into Whole Foods when I need this or that, and I’ll still laugh when I see a 3 year old crying for the $5 bottle of juice that promises to produce a genius. Will I chuckle to myself a little harder when I pass by “the poison in aisle 7″ and the “gluten-free section filled with crackers and bread made from various wheat-substitutes such as cardboard and sawdust”?
Of course, I will. Let’s face it – sometimes that gluten-free stuff tastes like cardboard and sawdust.
Cheering on (and anticipating the new season with) these guys…

What have you been up to lately?
As promised, I have been working on pimping out my Running Playlist in preparation for my half-marathon in October.
I have all the below songs currently on my list (in no particular order). If you think this is bad, then I don’t want to show you what it was like before… If you have any suggestions, please comment or shoot me an email. I’d love to hear from you!
Good news! Finally, we are all going to be speaking proper English! According to my Twitter feed this morning (more specifically, Chicago Tribune), the Oxford English Dictionary has added “selfie” and “twerk” to their list of real English words.
I was very relieved to hear that my everyday sentences will align with Oxford’s standards. More importantly, Miley Cyrus can stop getting ridiculed for her wonderful display of tasteful dancing. This is the new normal.
While I don’t want to give Miley too much more exposure (because my blog is SO connected to important people), I do want to point out that this dictionary change is advancing the world to a level we have never seen before. I would also like to thank her for the role she has played in making this possible.
I can now say “Let’s take a selfie” without any worries of judgement by society. Phew, I am so relieved.
Last night, I updated my running playlist for the first time in over a year. Let’s just say that it needed it more than I care to admit.
Needless to say, the Blogworld helped me create quite the playlist. I am hoping it keeps me motivated while I train for my next half marathon in October. I will be the first to admit that I have been slacking when it comes to the training for that. So… we will see how THAT goes!
I’ll post my new playlist later but in the meantime, I’ll share this little sneak peak of what you can expect on it:
Any suggestions for great running songs?
