I started to write a "Weekend -in-Numbers" post on the train this morning but I got distracted by all of the Oscar buzz and such, so I thought I'd do a weekend update in rambly form to encompass everything.
Okay first up... My 5k.
Let me sum up the weather for you on Saturday in one word:
This is how I started out. I was bundled in about 3 layers and did resemble an Inuit before shedding my puffy coat to run. I still had on a tank, a run swiftly tech shit and my Lulu jacket on but I was absolutely FREEZING.
I still haven't received the official results, but my Nike running app clocked me coming it at 32:28 for the 5k.
I managed to shave off a full 2 minutes from my last 5k. I'll take it!
(It should also be noted that I was one of the last 5k finishers... These people were FAST. I was running right behind a girl up until the middle and then she took OFF. She basically sprinted to the end. Maybe I can get an even 30 next time!)
The rest of the day was spent grocery shopping. All I can say is that Rachel's Organic yogurt is my favorite and it was on offer.
So I bought 4.
Sunday marked a truely special day in Chez BP.
It was 5 years ago on Sunday that I traipsed into Starbucks at the corner of Boylston and Tremont in Boston to get a coffee before going home to do my Contracts reading and struck up a conversation with a certain tall, blue-eyed Englishman.
When I woke up and rolled over for my standard morning snuggle, I was handed a card and a little package.
Clearly I cried for a solid hour.
(Hormones, I tell you)
I pretty much bagged a good one, y'all.
Today is my first non-couch potato day using my FitBit and I can't wait to see how I go this week!
Do any of y'all have a FitBit?!
After working for about 5 hours, we settled in to watch Call the Midwife and then headed to bed. Now... by headed to bed I mean, I started checking twitter to see the Oscar red-carpet looks.
Now, for the obligatory favorite dresses.
STOP IT, AMY ADAMS.
Oscar can do no wrong. I need this dress in my life. Where will I wear it? Don't ask stupid questions. Obviously everywhere.
No words for Katniss.
Reese just had a baby and she looks like THAT?!
And don't even get me started with Jessica Chastain.
I can't think of anyone else that could pull off champagne colored sparkles.
Which dresses did I hate?
Zoe Saldana's, K-Stews, and also... I know everyone loved Kerry Washington's bright pink number... butttt I wasn't that into it.
What is WITH the Anne Hathaway hatred!?
My twitter feed was nothing but a stream of anti-Anne Hathaway tweets from about midnight my-time onwards.
I am not going to lie. I love her as an actress. I think she's brilliant.
However, when I have seen her interviewed?
I sort of get it. She's peppy... She's gushy... She can be awkward.
But you know what?
I think that's why I like her. She's isn't perfectly polished... she embarrasses herself... she gets excited about things that the rest of Hollywood tries to be too cool for. She seems like someone I could be friends with in real life. She speaks in exclamation points and anyone that speaks in exclamation points is someone I can get behind.
Also? She was amazing in Les Mis. I don't care what any of you mean girls say... She brought me to tears and I thought she deserved that Oscar she received last night.
So... tell me, how was your weekend?!
Are ALL of y'all haters of the AH?!
