Costume Decisions

Now that the Disney Princess Half Marathon is less than a month away (yikes), I am in full costume planning mode over here.  

Of course, I have always known I will wear a tiara.  I don't think I have ever worn one in my life, and if running a half marathon isn't a good enough reason, I don't know what is.  Amy Ferrah Fowler agrees.

Bahahaha.  I died laughing the first time I saw that, and every single time since.  

Right now I have a little tiara that is attached to a hair clip so it shouldn't be too much of a bother.  Other than the tiara, I thought I would make a pink tutu and call it a day.  

That was, until I saw this costume:


Isn't that super cute?  (I would obviously wear a black shirt.)  And classic Disney.  Plus, every girl and her mom will have a tutu and a tiara on.  I am slightly worried that the ears would annoy me, but beauty is pain.  So, I am thinking Princess Minnie is the final costume choice.  Do you think Minnie ever wore a tiara?  If not, she will now.  Hahaha.

I am so sore from my race on Sunday .  I am never sore from running.  But, I have been training at about a 10 minute mile, and during the race, I ran more of a 9 minute 20 second mile.  Who thought 40 seconds could make that big of a difference? I almost didn't run yesterday, but to work the lactic acid out of my muscles, I jogged 3 miles while watching New Girl.  

Breakfast and lunch were nothing too exciting.  But dinner....oh my goodness.

Overnight protein oats (5)

Lunch and snacks: cottage cheese and pear (3), butternut squash soup (2) TJ's fiber bar (3), carrots, radishes, and an apple

I made chicken tamale bake (click *here* for the recipe).  This was one of the easiest recipes I have made, and according to Dan, the "best I have made so far."  I have to agree, it was super good. And super easy to make.  Tonight, you should buy the stuff to make this.  Then, you should invite me over for dinner. :)

My only complaint is the lack of veggies.  Next time I should serve it with a big salad.

To have pre-cooked chicken (for this and a few more recipes to come) I followed *these directions* for bulk chicken cooking in the crock pot.  The chicken came out perfect, and Dan saved the left over broth for soup.

For dessert, I was feelin' Elvisish, so I added a banana to my peanut butter cheerios.  Have you tried these yet?  Mmmm....

Off to finish a 4ish mile run! :)  Have a great day!

Thought for the day:


DP (31) + RP (6) - EP (39) = -2.  Looks like I am starting off the week in the negatives. Typical Monday.


  1. Can't wait to see your costume! (I thought SR's was super cute, too) I'm afraid if I buy Peanut Butter Cheerios, I will not be able to stop eating them!!

  2. I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
