the only thing that doesn't change is change itself.

eight miles last week. six miles this week. for someone who used to average zero miles a week, i'll say it's decent. after the fourth of july, i am starting a cute little running challenge with a girlfriend of mine, but i'll talk more about that later.
the other morning i got up at 6:15am and ran. and i didn't hate it. what?
it was probably 68 degrees and nobody in the neighborhood to distract me. except for two deer i saw walking casually walking down our road. it was like a toy story moment. deer are in charlotte? that's not supposed to happen.
my girl, francesca, has been cheering me on too. and recently developed an obsession in rolling around in red dirt. i'm not sure that these two things are correlated, but there you have it.

i don't know if you noticed, but i made a few changes to the ol' blog this week. added some corks, made my own title (high five to my html challenged self), and finally have my own domain! i own a website. and it's about wine. how cool is that.
wednesday, allyson and i went out for our tradition of #girlsnight. most #girlsnights at age 25 consist of a nice dinner, a glass of wine, and you're in bed by 10:30pm. not ours. the past few #girlsnights we always went to all american pub for their half off wine wednesday, but deicded to change it up & went over to cabo fish taco for dinner, then the blind pig in noda to play life size jenga, ride on fake animals on springs, and stay out way too late. 

if you haven't been to cabo fish taco, go tonight for dinner. or heck, go for lunch. and tell them to give me a free meal for sending you.
ps: if you're like me and have the #fomo effect with food (fear of missing out) and can't choose between steak or fish tacos, ask nicely and they will give you one of each.

anyway, now that you know how weird we are, on to the next one. i finally went back to dark brown locks. i had the blonde for about two months tops & decided it's not for me anymore. plus i'm not in college where it's acceptable to have 5 different hair colors in one year. at ages 18-21, you're still figuring "you" out meaning it's totally okay to do that. but i'm an "adult" and should have "figured me out by now" and "probably should stop." my hair is happy being dark brown and it takes 5 less minutes to fix it because blonde = frizzies according to my hair. brunettes are cooler anyway.

& hey y'all, i have blogged 5 days in a row; opposed to like two. that's good change right? i love logging on and seeing people who blog everyday. i never thought i would start to follow what happens in strangers people i haven't met's lives, but i do. i seriously want to know what happens on your honeymoon, buying a house, getting married, what you did this weekend, what you're wearing, and even how your nine months without wine is going. yikes. i don't know how you do it. i'm not ready for a kid, so that one kinda scares me a bit. but i read anyway hoping it preps me when i finally am ready approximately 42 years from now.
maybe i'll change my mind one day.
