Running the Race

My friend just finished her first race, a 5k, so I bought her a necklace as a gift.  She has asthma and has consistently been walking and jogging to work herself up to this point.  So, I’m very proud of her for accomplishing her goal.  I don’t think I could ever run a race.  It hurts my back so much!

I’ve realized how much my friend likes gifts.  With me, I’m kind of like, eh, whatever, thanks.  But, with her, it just changes her whole day to get a gift.  I really need to make note of that and be sure to get her little things more.  I’ve gotten her some things in the past like Dermablend cosmetics and organic makeup, which she really loved as well.  She also has a birthday coming up, and I’m thinking about getting her some of these clothes, because we both love that movie!

God tells us to love Him and love others.  The longer I run “the race,” the more I learn how better to love others, especially the body of believers.  Gifts are certainly one way to do that.


1980’s Comeback

Who didn’t love the 80’s?  Crimped hair, riding bikes, awesome cartoons were all a part of the awesome 80’s.  Michael Jackson was king of the world.  Micheal Jordan was King of the sky.  It was a great time, and it seems now that people love the 80’s more than ever.  I think they are having a serious run at overtaking the nostalgic 70’s.

I remember waking up and watching all kinds of cartoons on Saturday mornings.  The Smurfs, Care Bears, He-Man and Transformers are just a few.  Now, there are movies out there that are shifting the pop culture’s eyes back again to the 80’s.  Michael Bay did a great job on his latest movie, and it’s got people searching everywhere for Transformers Toys.  Kids now want action figures of Optimus Prime and Megatron, and I found a great lens on Squidoo that has them: Transformers: More than Meets the eye.  Parents are even scrambling to get items like these for their kids.

It’s amazing to me to see the blend of the cultures.  There are kids out there wearing Disney Cars clothes, and Transformers clothing at the same time.  Little do they know the heritage of the 80’s.  You also see stuff like Miami Vice and G.I. Joe making comebacks.  What a great run.  Keep it real in the 80’s!

yard sales!

I LOVE going to garage sales.  I love getting a good deal, or shopping in the clearance rack or buying from a huge sale or something.  But, sometimes you just have to shell out the money for things that you really want. 🙂  My nephew really loves Disney cars, and so I gave in and bought him a whole load of stuff the other day.  I spoil that kid to no end!  I guess that’s what happens when you are the only nephew!

On my way home from work on Friday I stopped by at a sale and basically hit the mother load of cool stuff.  A whole school had to close their doors, and was forced to sell everything at a huge sale, and I bought so much cool stuff there for super cheap!  Hooray for that!
