Random Thursday...

1.  It has been hotter than Hades around here!  It was 95 yesterday and super humid.  I know it's June and that the Midwest has humid summers, but how am I supposed to get anything done that way.  It makes running absolutely miserable, and I can't enjoy the open air.

2.  The bathroom is almost done.  We still need to put up the shower curtain, towel rack, etc...but, the end is near..  Here's a peek at the progress so far.

3.  I'm not sure if the Susan G. Komen festivities kick off everywhere this weekend.  But, here in St. Louis we are ready to roll!  Tonight is Dine Out for the Cure, in which participating restaurants will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Foundation.  Tomorrow is Caliente for the Cure, which is a Zumbathon, and tomorrow is the 5K.  Fun fact - St. Louis has the largest Komen Race for the Cure in the world.  I did it last year, and the sheer number of people made it amazing.  This year I'll be doing the Dining out and Caliente for the Cure. 

A view of the race.
Our team last year.
4.  I love concert season!  This month alone I've got two concerts and a show to see.  We are seeing Richard Marx (total 90s flashback!), I'm going to see NKOTB, Boyz II Men, and 98 Degrees with a friend, and we'll see Pirates of Penzance at the Opera House.  Shakespeare in the Park ends this weekend, so we may also check out Twelfth Night.

5.  I know I'm not old old, but man...weight loss this time around is tough.  I felt like it was easy to shed it off last year, but I am having a much harder go at it this year.  And I don't stand up often enough for myself when friends or Joel want to go out to eat somewhere with no healthy options (like Five Guys).  Plus, I find I use way too many excuses to not work out, when I just need to get my butt up and do it, a la Nike.

Excuse the naughty word.
