Midweek Randoms

*I am taking my title post, "random" quite literally today. This is a very random post.* I am planning on doing an update on my running soon - as I'll be doing my half marathon this weekend!! Yikes! I've actually been really good and have hardly had any cheat days, which isn't easy when my days are already filled being a good Mommy and wife to my husband; 5am wakeup calls have been the hardest pills to swallow in this whole training and I'm exhausted. Exhausted.

But, exhaustion or not, I've been trying to make time to fit in all the things I want to fit in. One day last week, my sweet sister and her brave boyfriend took the kids for us for a few hours while my husband and I went to see Gone Girl. I read the book, upon the recommendation of my best friend Jen and have been dying to see the movie ever since. I was not disappointed. I really liked it.
 Now that the weather has started to change, I've been going through my closet and trying to figure out what to keep, what I need to buy, etc. And you know the realization I've come to? I really haven't bought clothes since before I had kids. Seriously. FOUR kids later, and nothing fits well; absolutely nothing looks great. It's funny how when you become a mommy, some things just take a backseat, and for me, it's been clothes. It's so much more fun to buy clothes for the kids - because those ALWAYS fit! This pink shirt I'm wearing in this photo, I have had since my freshman year of college. Ridiculous. I am in desperate need of clothes and NEED to make it a priority.
I should clarify, actually. Because there is one type of clothes I HAVE bought since children - and that's workout clothes. Ha! I'm pretty sure I now have a running shirt and sports bra in every color! It's unfortunate I can't just wear workout clothes to work everyday, because I probably would have more to choose from.

I have so many posts I've been wanting to write and catch up on, but every time I get a few hours or minutes to myself to write, I am just too exhausted to actually form coherent sentences. Does that happen to anyone else?!?

Hubby worked four of the last five nights until 1am and so last night we spent two hours just talking and catching up. Then, armed with hot chocolate in warm mugs, a blanket, and a desire to snuggle - we watched The Fault in our Stars on the couch. I expected it to be sad and was completely prepared for that, but sobbed through more than half the movie. Holy moly. I do have to say, though, that some aspects were also quite beautiful and hopeful. But be prepared to cry. A lot.

I had high hopes that tonight would be filled with more snuggling and catching up on Once Upon a Time, but I feel like I could crawl into bed and fall asleep until next week.

Too bad I'm running tomorrow at 5:30am.
