Ok – those were actually kind of super hard! They made me thing, but they also helped me to focus on positive things I’ve done and what I would like to accomplish in the future!


  1. I totally had a hard time with things I love about myself, too. Isn't it funny how if we had to name five things we love about anything or anyone else it'd be a snap?

    Happy FMM!

  2. Came by from FMM. What a great year to date you've had, a 10 miler, and a 5k PR! Congrats! Tortillas are also becoming a staple in our house, but only for about the last year. Love them. I just recently did the Great Wall and saw NKOTB in concert, but a couple years ago, both of those things would have made my lists too! And I'm 100% with you on not missing The Bachelor...

  3. Stopping by from FMM! I shall not call you crazy. I've wanted to see NKOTB in concert since I was 8. I wasn't allowed to go as a child, so since the reunion in 2008 I have seen them 8 times. :-) 9 this July. It's pretty much the best thing ever! I hope you get to see them!!
