Bam got a pet turtle

Happy Friday the 13th!  Muhahaha. 

I wrote this post last night so if this doesn’t make sense, you will know that I am under caffeinated.

This pathetic furry face of sadness is because I was typing and not paying any attention to him. 


Nobody likes me, everybody hates me…

I really wanted to get my long run for the week in, but it wasn’t in the cards.  The night before a loud thump woke us up and Mike realized someone was in our backyard.  That was pretty interesting.  Or not.

Of course we couldn’t go right back to sleep after that so we slept in a bit.  By the time I made it out to run it was hot but I rocked 3 long, hot, miserable miles and called it good. 


Then I found out the saddest news.  My beloved watermelon Nuun is going out of season. 


Guess I’ll have to become a Nuun hoarder.  I just shuddered writing that word.  Yuck.

Moving on, I hung out in Pacific Grove in the afternoon.  It looks cold, but it was actually 70 & just overcast.  Welcome to the coast life. 

Too bad I didn’t bring my swimsuit and boogie board.  Those sets were killer.




I don’t know why, but every time I leave Bam longer than usual I feel guilty.  I’m a sucka for him so I picked up a new toy turtle on my way home.  I mean it’s not like he has an overflowing box of them or anything. 

Mike thinks I place how I’m feeling on Bam.  He say’s Bam doesn’t have feelings.  I’m like…


The pictures blurry because knuckle head was so excited about his new turtle friend he couldn’t stand it.  His excitement makes my day!


For those interested, here’s a video of my step grandfather that won the lotto.–abc-news-topstories.html

Fellow Nuun addicts, what is your favorite flavor?

Random, but what’s you favorite 80’s movies?

I have so many, Ferris Buellers Day Off, all National Lampoons vacation movies, Office Space plus a gazillion more I can’t think of right now.

What are you looking forward to this fall?

Are you superstitious? 

Nope, not at all.  But I do believe in karma.

  1. 80’s movies I love – Field of Dreams, Major League, Ferris, Breakfast Club, Back to the Future, The Goonies…the list goes on and on! I’ll give you Michelle’s favourite movie all time as well, as it was from the 80’s, Dirty Dancing.

    I’m looking forward to my Fall marathon, which is one month today!

    • The Goonies!! Forgot about that one. I can’t wait to cheer you on from Cali next month. You have been so committed to training, I am sure you will do really well.

  2. I was expecting a for real turtle!

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is my all time favorite (of all time ever, 80’s or not). I also love The Cutting Edge and Footloose.

    I am sooo looking forward to cooler weather and wearing boots again! (It’s the little things, I guess).

  3. I must make a beeline to SportsBasement and pick up some watermelon Nuun then because I absolutely love it. time to sock up!

    80s movies, Back to the Future, The Goonies, Lost Boys, Dirty Dancing, Beetlejuice, Labrinyth, The Chipmunk Adventure, The Princess Bride, Indiana Jones . . . . the list goes on. 🙂

    Not superstitious. My family has 4 black cats between them and I have broken so many mirrors it’s bad. Aaaaaand 13 is my lucky number. woot woot.

  4. Fav Nuun flavor: strawberry lemonade

    Fav 80s movie: Raising Arizona

    Looking forward to this stupid VMO injury or whatever it is to heal. i’m missing so many fun fall half marathons!

    Not superstitious but i also believe in karma.

  5. That was so neat to see about your step g’pa! How cool for him.
    Looking forward to Halloween with my kiddos..I already have their costumes all planned and everything. My boy twin will be Popeye and my girl Olive Oyl. Seriously, they’re going to be hilarious!
    I don’t believe in bad luck or even karma, particularly. Good things happen to good people but so do bad. Good things also happen to bad people and bad things happen to them too. I’m so deep

  6. I am so sad that the Watermelon Nuun is going out of season!! I didn’t even get to try it. I have been scouring every place that I see selling it to see if they have it and they haven’t. Now I will have to wait all year to start looking for it again 🙁
    I would have to say Top Gun! I was/maybe still am.. a big Tom Cruise fan and i just loved that movie!
    I am not superstisious (I can’t even spell so how can I be) at all but I do enjoy listening to other people and why they are supersticious..

  7. 1. You are my favorite blogger!
    2. I am jealous that ou live on the beach bc I live in Massachusetts…where the fall is lovely, Yes, but the winters are AWFUL!

  8. Hey new follower here! I heard about the watermelon nuun too and I quickly placed my order! I have yet to try that flavor and just thought maybe it would be around for awhile lol guess not. I am a nuun lover too!

  9. That is an awesome lottery story! He sounds like a stand-up guy! 🙂

    Bam is, of course, the cutest dog ever! I project my feelings onto my dogs too and feel guilty when I leave them. 🙂

  10. Our golden retriever is absolutely obsessed with stuffed animals and we drive to garage sales looking for these stupid little stuffed turtles like you had. She has a box about the size of a coffin full of them but yet she loves each one. I can totally touch base with your little fellow on the happiness of that new turtle haha.

    I love the tagline “skinnychickblog” haha. What happens if you gain lots of weight from a pregnancy and aren’t the skinny chick anymore hahaha (thats my story) *cry face
