What a whirlwind the past few days have been! My boyfriend was in town over the weekend, which is why I didn’t post anything yesterday. He was here to celebrate my (early) birthday, and also to run the Flying Pig Marathon! He ran the half last year, but this was his first full marathon. Not surprisingly, he did amazing. Also not surprising: I missed seeing him finish while I was running around like an idiot trying to get a good view of said finish line. I actually had just climbed around 200 steps to overlook the end of the race, only to have him call me right when I climbed the top. My life.
To celebrate, we went to brunch, where I enjoyed a mimosa and banana’s foster French toast. You would think I was the run who ran the marathon, since I came home and passed out immediately after. As much as I’m a diehard bruncher, I can pretty much guarantee that I’m going to have an unproductive day afterward. Sitting in the sun drinking really sucks the energy out of me, but boy is it amazing in the moment.
I titled today’s post “Something New” because this is the first time I’ve ever worn my hair up on here. Sounds pretty weird, I know, but I’m a girl who has a routine and sticks to it. Growing up, I lived in ponytails. After high school, it was all about wearing my hair down. I don’t know why but I just feel more attractive when my hair is down. I’m trying to be more adventurous though, so this is me taking baby steps to get there!
