I thought I got rid of my cold last week, but it was still going on and turning into a sinus infection.  I finally sucked it up and went to the doctor this afternoon for an antibiotic.  I am hoping it kicks in soon and I get back to normal!

It kinda freaks me out that I am on week 4 of my marathon training plan and I missed two runs this week. If I am feeling up to it, I might try to do a short mid-week tomorrow and still do my 9 mile long run on Sunday.

My Mom took Colby and I to my favorite restaurant for my birthday (it was Wednesday).

After eating salad and appetizers, we ordered a creme brulee and it was decorated pretty for me.  It had a cookie and a candle on top.

My Mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and I told her I wanted to go see one of my favorite shows.  Blast! is basically a broadway show made up of a drum corps.  I wrote a post last summer about what drum corps is and my experience with it as a musician.  Basically, it is insanely crazy marching band made up of brass and percussion instruments with guard members.  Read about it here and you will definitely think of me as more of a music nerd.

Here is a video of Blast…


I made a crockpot recipe of chicken/vegetable soup tonight.  Colby has been sick too, so we are going to rest up, eat our soup and hopefully be all better soon!


I love salt when I am sick, so I ate tortilla chips with my soup tonight.  I also ate a million brownies because I’ve gotten so many for my birthday this week :)  I am not a cake/ice cream person. Give me brownies. Lots and lots of Ghiradelli brownies :)

  1. Again, happy, happy birthday! I hope you weren’t too sick on your bday :(

    I’m not the biggest cake person either. I prefer cookies, cupcakes, and brownies first. A big brownie with melted vanilla ice cream on top is delicious. Oh, I need to have one now!
