Today is my last day at home. Tomorrow at 3am I will wake-up and get ready to hope in the car and head on down to DC. Our rented truck will be full of all my possessions, mostly new, a lot old, and tons of food! I am just kind of going through the motions, floating through these last few days, not really thinking about it all. I am so overwhelmed with packing. WHAT DO YOU BRING!? I am sure I am forgetting something. I mean, I am moving my whole life and self to another state (well semi-state). I have to strategically go through my checklist today and make sure everything is in order and ready to go. No time of social media and procrastination today! It is game time. So while I am frantically living my last day, why don;t you take some time and read some good stuff 😉 Enjoy these posts and pins for me! XOXO

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Okay, so enough with the running hints. I have an announcement to make! Last Sunday, I went for my first run in over 10 years! I did it! I tied up my ZQuicks, went for a walk around the neighborhood down my street and then got the urge to just start running for a bit. I saw a line in the pavement ahead of me and told my self to just go when I got to that point. That's what I did, and I didn't stop! I have no idea how far or fast I went, but it was quick, but felt crazy! I didn't have an asthma attack a die either! However, my ankles hurt, they felt so heavy hitting the pavement. (I think I was just sore from other workouts). But then the next days, my hips hurt. So I haven't run again, but I think I will do quick little bursts once a week (IN DC!). Just something different for my body. Once I started running though, I couldn't stop! It really was addicting, I ran all the way home and then I was all smiles and I couldn't stop smiling! Can I call myself a runner now? Eh, not yet 😉
+ What else did I love this week? Well I can't really say since my emotions have been CRAZY up and down all week. One minute I would feel good and confident, the next I was so overwhelmed I just wanted to hide in my closet.
So tell me:
+ When did you start running? Do you remember you first run? How did it feel?
+ What are you doing this weekend? Are the kiddos going back to school soon or have they already? My classes start MONDAY!
So I have no idea what time I will have to write posts for next week. I do have one already scheduled for Monday, but other than that I have no idea. So please bare with me other the next few weeks as I get my college legs and figure out my new schedule and how much time I have for my blogging. I won't ever leave though (even if you want me to!)! I will definetly have a Friday Finisher up next week. So two posts for sure, but I'll try to get a college update in to so you can find out how move-in went! Until then, have a beautiful weekend and wish me luck! XOXO
GWU here I come!
