a 5K, proposal, blogger date, and lovin on my jeep-jeep

all in a day…
Ran the Art City/Nestle 5k with my Momma this morning.
I forgot to stop my garmin right as I crossed, but as I was CHICKING runners on the straightaway (except the one guy… and i almost had him) I glanced at the clock and it was 25:00… so I’m sticking with that time. I had a really good race, definitely pushed at the end, but accomplished my goal of not KILLING myself and I should be able to have a good long run tomorrow.
My Momma is a ROCKSTAR (Holla!!)
placed 2nd in her age group with a time of 24:22 (garmin)
Ready for the FRICKIN’ CUTEST, MOST-DARLING-est STORY ever???
k… so my friend Allie and her parents were running the 5k today too and Allie’s boyfriend came down to watch her run in… and HE PROPOSED at the FINISH LINE! How freakin’ cute is that?
Her dad came over to us and told us we should go talk to her.
(We had lots of friends running the race so we were making the rounds)
but… I ran up behind her and gave her a huge hug and she turns around and says
“LOOK WHAT JUST HAPPENED!”
I was jumping up and down and screaming like a school girl. I should probably be embarrassed, but I’m not. 🙂
I’m so, so, so, so, SO excited for Allie and Chris!
bling bling baby!
after the 5k, headed home, got all purty-fied, and headed to Terra Mia to meet up with these gorgeous ladies!
Elena, Holly, her lil boy Nicholas, Julia, Sarah, Rachelle, baby James, Amber, Emily, me, Janae, and Rachelle
Had a blast chatting with the girls. I ordered the chopped salad. It was SO good. Had chunks of blue cheese, salami, some other white cheese, and hard boiled eggs… and a yummy vinaigrette dressing. Yum!
Then this little guy
kept hinting he wanted Yogurtland… so of course we headed there!
(seriously?? this kid is adorable. gorgeous eyes, dark hair, faux hawk…. ADORABLE)

 this little guy is a cutie too! cutest chubby cheeks and beautiful eyes!
(amber and baby james)
the Yogurtland group (minus Rachelle-HungryRunnerSis)
I was feeling super sleepy while we were wrapping up at Yogurtland, so I high-tailed it home with the windows down and cranking my stereo… and decided my jeep-jeep needed some serious lovin’
wiped down and polished the inside, picke
d up all the trash (water bottles, random ziploc baggies, receipts), found a pair of gloves, ear warmers and TWO ice scrapers.
Then I took off to my Mom’s house to wash and vacuum.
(I didn’t want to take over the landlord’s driveway… I’m sure they wouldn’t mind… but seeing as how I was rocking out to Adele, Britney, and Gaga I decided I should do that in front of my parents house instead)
 Can’t wait for the summer to drive top-less!
(the jeep… not me! Ha Ha!)
Look Ma! I even cleaned the cup holders!
 They only had to soak in the sink while I was at my parents house… so gross…
(the white stuff on the seat cover is spilled coffee… how can I spill coffee when my cups all have lids?!!)
the back seat cup holders… clean as a WHISTLE!
Did anyone else have a race this weekend?
Anyone get engaged??
Who wants to go for a drive in my super-sparkly-clean JeepJeep?!
p.s. Ann convinced (aka begged) me to get a twitter. tweet tweet @Ash_and_Diz
