#backthatazzup tough mudder style

Do you ever just have one of those evenings....

::The kind where you're late to an appointment because of traffic, your gas light comes on half way through the commute, annnnnd you have to pee. Not sure if I am the only one, but I PANIC as soon as my gas light comes on, because the one time I didn't panic I ran out of gas. Embarrassing.

::The kind where you walk in the door and the first thing your boyfriend tells you is you smell like beef jerky. (We later discovered it was from the sweatshirt I put on, hadn't been washed since the weekend and it still smelled like campfire.) 

::The kind where you go to the grocery store and you're smelling new shampoos and it squirts up into your nose. facial.

::The kind where you buy these awesome treats:


because you're cutting out dairy, but then when you go to open the container they spill all over the sink and counter, 3 of which ended up down in the garbage disposal. WAHHHHHHHHHH


No?! Just me?! Cool.

Needles to say, all those Almond bites were gone by the time I went to bed last night and I am extra glad it is Friday.

Also, if you're curious I made it to my appointment in time and didn't run out of gas. It was for a massage and don't get all ohhh and ahhh for me, this was not your normal, relaxing, happy massage.  This was a massage done by the sports massage therapist that worked on me in college for track.  It's deep tissue and it's painful, BUT they are the most beneficial massages I have ever had when it comes to preparing for an event.  I have been having knee and back pain and I think it has to do with my tight hip flexors so I am trying to get them loosened up before this weekend's TOUGH MUDDER


::Speaking of, go check out Jessi's weekend links that are Tough Mudder style. Great Transition into this week's links, Brooke

::Just a few pie charts, you know, very educational ones.

::In honor of Fathers Day.

::37 things to consider before moving to Portland.

AND MY FAVORITE LINK OF THE DAY....

::Season 2 of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee has arrived!!!!!


Also, it wouldn't be Friday if I didn't #backthatazzup, so we're gonna #backthatazzup Tough Mudder style. 

Get some!

So ready. 

Yes, that would be the beef jerky, camp fire sweatshirt, in case you were wondering. 



HOOOOOORAH!

Yes, what is your secret to those abs?

Lauren said...

I get so much anxiety over the gas light, it's ridiculous. Meanwhile, my husband drives the car beyond E just to prove it can be done. Even though I know it's unlikely I will run out of gas, I can't handle it! Good luck this weekend!

Tori G said...

I freak out when I am almost out of gas and when the light goes on...forget about it, I am in full on panic!

Cre'shea said...

kailyn marie said...

why you gotta be such a twig. bitch.

p.s. my car tells me how many miles I have left in my tank. I panic when I have 5 miles left, cos I like to wait that long.

Ginny @ Buttergirl Diaries said...

Girlie you are so fricken cute! Yes, I've definitely had those gas tank issues. I've ran out of gas about 3 times now on the road. My mom constantly tells me how bad it is, but I guess I'm stll in my 16 year old mind. Haha. I think, "I can go another 10 miles. I'm good!" ...No, no your not good. you are out of gas on the side of the highway....not fun!

AHHHH I wanna do one soooo bad. When's the next one? I've been wanting to see what all this Portland business is about.. Running/obstacle/muddy/torture blate?! Also, I can't buy those almond bites for the exact reason that they are GONE in a matter of minutes. SO GOOD.

Jenni Bost said...

Bahahaha... you crack me up. (Facial? OMG) Also, I totally freak every time the gas light comes on!
