Jamie is one of my very best friends, we have only know each other for a little over 2 years now, but I feel like we have known each other all our lives. She is what I call, ” my sister from another mister”. In those two years we have gone through a lot together, and have truly become best friends. Here is the card she got me, which pretty much sums up our relationship. I love this card!
hehe. She wrote me a very sweet note on the inside of the card. In it she said that I was the one that inspired her to change her lifestyle to a healthier one. I think that one goes both ways. Yes I did help her get the ball rolling and now she has lost about 30 lbs, and ran a half marathon! I am so proud of her, she continues to inspire me to stay healthy. Everytime I see her, or talk to her it makes me want to get outside and run. So in a sense we both accomplished #95 of my 101 in 1001, to motivate others to live a healthier lifestyle. In keeping with that theme, when I got home today after a craaazy couponing adventure, more on that later, I took Ella for a nice run with my new Runtone shoes!
I only ran 1.09 miles, before I stopped, but it was a start and its better than nothing. Tomorrow I plan on going for another run with Ella.
oh goodness, I don’t know why I get so flustered when I go couponing. I didn’t take a picture of all the stuff I got this week, because when I got home I just wanted to put it all away and go running, but it was a good deal week. I think the best deal I got was $5 for 2 spray bottles of coppertone sunblock at CVS, which are originally $12 each. So back to my crazy story, I went over my my in-law’s house and we sat and chatted for a while, before I took my mother-in-law to CVS with me. I had asked her earlier which deodorant she uses and she said Degree, and I had told her I could get those for $1 each. Well when we got to CVS we headed straight for the degree and pick 4 of them up. We continued our shopping and once I dropped her off at home and headed over to Rite Aid I looked at my coupons and realized the degree deal was at Rite aid. UGH. I got the degree at Rite Aid, ( I got 4 deodorants for $4), and went to my mother-in-law’s house to pick up the cvs ones to return. It was such a better deal because at CVS they were 4 for $10. Anyway, I guess you had to be there to see how flustered I was, but in the end it was worth it. Moral of this lesson is that I cannot go couponing with anyone else, I must go by myself. I just get too excited with I go with other people, I need to stay in the zone and focus. Whew.
Tonight for dinner, we went over to my mom’s house! YUMMY. No pictures sorry, but trust me when I say it was amazing.
Alright friends, I am off to bed! Tomorrow is my last Friday off, and I must make the most of it!
