Yesterday I ran 8 miles before work and took a trip down memory lane by listening to the “Dashboard Confessional” station on Pandora. Confession 1– I still know every single word to every Dashboard song. Back story- I was a blushing, giggling mess of a teen when it came to Chistopher Carrabba of the band Dashboard Confessional. Even my AIM name (Carrabbakisser) gave away my ridiculous crush. I’m pretty sure I printed these (among other) pictures of Chris off the internet, and plastered them to my wall & even the roof of my first car. Why the car roof you ask?? Love makes you do silly things 😉
Some people have called/will call, my taste in music bad. That is totally ok with me. It is true that I listen to everything from rap to classical and it is true that I still love and know music that was popular like 10 years ago. 😉 Besides my love Chris, this song rocks my running world.
Confession 2– I am a huge fan of anything on sale. Even better? A sale at a thrift store. I went to the Goodwill a few days ago and practically got a whole new wardrobe for less than the price of one coat. I got two jackets, 6 dresses, several shirts, a few sweaters, etc, etc, etc. It was SUPER exciting that a few of my items were an additional 50% off (50% off a silk dress marked $7.99??? I’LL TAKE IT!)
These are just a few of my recent Goodwill finds. Yes, I found TWO nike dry fit, long sleeve running shirts. I think they were $8 combined. Not.A.Bad.Deal.
Confession 3- I currently have about 40 pounds of watermelon sitting in my fridge. I have been eating watermelon three times a day, but it’s not making a dent in my supply. Next time I decide to purchase the world’s biggest melon & have Lali tote it home… remind me that I can only do so much watermelon damage per day.
Confession 4- I am hardcore addicted to green smoothies. I like to talk about them, take pictures of them, convince my loved ones how awesome/tasty they are, and of course consume them. Lali has a new phone app that told him that our green smoothie consumption is at 97%…. I’m shocked it’s not at at least 105% by now.
Confession 5- I currently have a pretty gnarly mullet that I am hiding with bobby pins & hair ties. As you may know, I grew my hair out to donate to Locks of Love, rocked an awesome, short, bleached blond look for a moment, and I am now painfully growing my hair back out. Cheers to another year of awkward hair styles. 😉
This week is chock full of running & cross training. I am loving running more than ever. I hope you survived Monday and have an amazing week!!!
Do you have any funny/embarrassing/awesome confessions? Please share 🙂

Haha WHAT does 97% green smoothie consumption mean? That green smoothies are 97% of what you eat??
Hahahaha good question- sorry that was super confusing 😉 it means that he plans on having a green smoothie every day of the week and that happens 97% of the time!
