Good Sunday morning peeps!? Anyone running today?? I planned to, but you know, Twitter happened last night.? So I overslept.
Darn you, Twitter and your 140 characters of bizarro humor!
Yep.? That was my Saturday night.? I couldn’t look away, y’all.? I had to see it through to the end.
Okay, so maybe it’s only amusing at 10pm when you haven’t eaten in almost 12 hours.? Or maybe it’s just amusing because I can’t believe no one else thought of this before.
But glow sticks.? In the pool.? #NotJustForRaves, yo.
As for my week…. it went like this:
I rejoiced.? First rain I’ve seen since I left Texas, y’all.? You know… FIVE MONTHS AGO.? I was a little giddy.
Two Blogger Household
My daughter, known here on out as #LilMissBlogger caught the bug.
First she had a lot of questions.? You know the ones, fellow Blogger Moms.
“What do you doooooo all day?”
“Why do you dooooo that all day?”
And finally “Can I dooooo that tooooo?”
So I let her guest blog.?? She wrote about our trip to the Grand Canyon.? I think you’ll agree, she’s brilliant.
Thank you SO much for? encouraging her to write more and to let her voice be heard.
She begged for her own site and I spent my Saturday setting up www.lilmissblogger.com? She picked the name, the theme, the colors and wrote all the content.? I added links and pictures and a few widgets.? It’s a work in progress, and I can’t wait to see where she goes from here!
I got my long run in this week thanks to Mr. Shenanigans having an extra day off.? Running 8 miles is no joke in Arizona in July.
8 miles at 4:45am and 84 degrees.
Yeah, that’s right.? I’m a bad ass for running at o’dark thirty AND in 84 degree weather.
Just don’t ask me how long it took.? Ahem.
If the whole “run 2 minutes slower than race pace when the temps are high” thing is true, then I’m golden.
If it’s not… well… I’ll finish?? Ha.
Walt Disney World News
In case you missed it, Frozen moved into Hollywood Studios for the summer. That means there’s only one park left…
A dream is a wish…sigh.? Just me?? Okay, moving on…
The sisters are still meeting guests at the Magic Kingdom, but through a space-time continuum they are ALSO showing up over in Hollywood Studios for a special Frozen Summer Event.? All the details you need are in that post!

4th of July
We spent the evening swimming in our friend’s pool, BBQ and drinks in hand, and fireworks overhead.
A great night- what more can I say?? I hope you also shared your day with friends or family celebrating our country.
Tomorrow I’ll be talking about the Princess Half Marathon.? People love her or they hate her.? I’ll lay it all out and you can decide- because, hey, it’s that time again!? runDisney race registration day!? Be sure to come by tomorrow to get the lowdown on this race.? Until then, check out a few blog posts from my friends re-capping their own experiences.
Tuesdays on the Run:? we are talking CLOTHING.? You have a favorite sock, skirt, shirt, brand, whatever that works for you?? Or maybe that DOESN’T work?? We hope you’ll blog about it and link-up with us on Tuesday.? As always, ANY running blog post is welcome in the link-up as well.
Quick Dietbet update:? my second month was a SUCCESS and I pocketed $96.14 this month.?? Even better?? I’ve lost over 15 pounds since I started Dietbet.? It’s motivating me- can I help motivate you?
