Elf-Tastic Friday

Happy Sunday!!

A lack of computer makes blogging non-existent, so we’re doing some catch up.

First, Friday I woke up to a surprise email… My fabulously fashionable friend Caity posted just for me! I was sitting in my car waiting for PT to start and was able to read about the shoe info I had requested from her! Last week I asked her for some shoe help – and oh my goodness, she answered my cry — and then some! This girl knows fashion. And when you ask for help, she’s there for ya!

Not to mention… In October, Caity opened her beautiful San Francisco apartment for me to stay at when I ran the Nike Women’s 1/2 Marathon. There I was inspired to create ArmyPaisley. I owe her.

You can read the post here. I HIGHLY recommend her blog if you love drooling over fashion (among other wonderful things) — especially shoes.

I intend on owning these:

Or these will do too…

At PT I couldn’t participate in the run. My damn foot was SCREAMING at me. Instead, I did this:

3 Rounds:

  • 25 lunges
  • 50 Sit ups

Then, 3 Rounds:

  • 25 lunges
  • 10 burpees

At lunch I came home to make a salad and was very sad to find that THIS had happened to my lettuce.


Another reason why I could do without living in a hotel room. The refridgerator doesn’t understand the concept of a produce bin. Instead, it just freezes when it’s feeling particularly cold. Thus, wet, soggy salad is born. Super.

But, I made it work and just added lots of other topping and made this beast.


Arugula, sweet potatoes, chicken, carrots, beets, strawberries, quinoa, goat cheese and goddess dressing. I should open a restaurant. ha.


Packed my bag for the weekend. (UofA hat… yeah.) My two wild, crazy, curly haired cousins came to town this weekend. EEEEEEEEK! This was the first time anyone has come to visit me in Tucson.  All morning was asking people, “What are you doing this weekend?” AP: “Oh that’s coole, MY COUSINS ARE COMING!!!” — Obviously I was just using it as an excuse to tell the entire world that I have plans with the FleurBow girls.

I was pretty much like Elf…

“My cousines are coming to Tucson, my cousins are coming to Tucson — And I don’t care who knows it!!!”

Is anyone else dying of laughter right now thinking of all the Elf quotes? No? Am I the only one?

“Does someone need a hug?”

“What’s a Christmas graham? I want one!”

“Fruit spray? SURE! AHHHHHHH!”

“I love to smile, smiling’s my favorite!”

“SANTA!!! Oh my God! I KNOW HIM!”

Or you can just watch the awesomeness for yourself (5 minutes of Elf-tastic-ness):

Friday night was a melow Tucson outing. I spent the morning causing frost bite to the foot. I had to prepare for Nicole’s entrance into Tucson. AKA: My foot is buggin’.


Nicole’s plane landed in Tucson at 11am. It was time for some FleurBow.
