LLRB 365: 2011 Week 13

Yippee!!! We've made it to April 1st and I'm officially on Spring Break.  I have no plans and all of my students talking about their trips to Disney and Mexico and Cruises and OMG I'm so jealous other than getting my homework done for my grad class and going to a Red Wings game at the end of the week.

Here's what happened in my neck of the woods this past week.

after the best 10 mile run I've ever had (1 hr, 43 min - a 10:14 pace!) we met up with my Sis and her fam and took the kids to see the butterfly exhibit at Meijer Gardens

another great trampoline and tumbling meet for K

Bell's Oberon is out!  It's like summer in a bottle.  M and I went to a release party at Midnight (Sunday night) so these pictures were technically taken on Monday :)

Squirt does her best Elvis impersonation

I found out I'm allergic to this stupid plant after I pulled all the old landscape lights out

today I reached a milestone - I ran a sub-30 min 5k on the trail by my house!
I also ran without any music or my gps giving me feedback

changed out my antenna topper in honor of the start of baseball season
today was the home opener for the Cubs - didn't win-but it still means spring!

There you have it, folks!  For the rest of today, I'll be hydrating and carb-loading. I have a 12 mile run on the schedule for tomorrow morning.  While the weather in the picture for today LOOKS nice, it's actually very cold and they are predicting rain and SNOW for tomorrow.  GAH.  Wish me luck!


  1. I love the tumbling photo - and Squirt. :)

  2. Cubs?? BLAH! Tigers, baby.... Though they have been sucking against the Yankees their first two games. :p

  3. Love the Cubs topper. They won today!!!!!

  4. Hello- New follower here! Can I just tell you HOW excited I am that Oberon is back on tap! YAY! We are laying low too! Only big plans for us is a trip to the UP this weekend. ENJOY your time off. My husband is a teacher and right about now he starts getting the summer break bug and so the count down begins!


Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Happy New Year 2020
