Things I love about Running

The sound of my feet on the ground.

The way you forget everything but the run.

The sound of my breathing.

The beep of my watch as I hit a mile.

The look of the road after a rain storm.

The smell of the outdoors, summer… winter… it doesn’t matter.

The sweat that accompanies the run.

The way my dog looks at me when I get home from my run in the morning.

The silence.

I love how my mother and husband ask how my run went that morning.

I love everything about my runs. Peaceful, serene AND they give me time to think. Side note: Go check out sneakers and finger paints — I was featured over there on Monday!

Thanks for listenin. Have a good one!

Happy FREAKIN’ Valentine’s Day

Happy Freakin’ Valentine’s Day

We here at OneLittleBecca Inc. have successfully celebrated the Lonely Hearts Club day on February 14, every year for approximately 13 years. The Lonely Hearts Club, Marshall Edition, founded by Rachel, assisted me through many a v-day. This year, while I am no longer a member, I take time to support my friends that are still members and show my support. I have never been an extreme fan of this day of the year when Hallmark and the jewelry companies have commercialized the celebration of St. Valentine…  although, it is an EXCELLENT excuse to have a party at work.

Our office is like the Office (thursday nights, nbc, 8pm). We have a Party Planning Committee and we use any excuse we can to have a party… often times with cake. YUM! I don’t really have much more on it other than uhhhh go team! And yknow what I will be doing with my fiance this evening…? Plowing our way through season 5 of Lost! SOOOOOOO romantic! hahahahaha

The most accurate Valentine Card!

Happy FREAKIN’ Valentine’s Day!

Could you be Loved?

dude, so i know it has been a little bit of time since my last post. here is the deal: i have recently taken on a bunch of extra curricular activities. all of them take time and one of them is helping to shape my future (school).  so i havent made a whole lot of time to create blog posts in the recent weeks. my bad yo. i will try to get better about that.

now, i know today is Wednesday; hump day. but before we get to the hump day posts, i feel the need to express some recent changes i have made in myself.

I am no longer one of the blue balls. i am now a yellow ball! YOU CAN BE ONE TOO!!!

recently, i have tried to take a turn towards a more positive life. i have cut back on swearing, gossip, trash tv, and a number of other things that are bad for me (although i did up the sugar intake hehe).  since i have been actively trying to be more positive, i have managed to handle situations differently then i used to, and THIS is a good thing. causing me less strife. anyway, this video, not necessarily super positive in lyrics, but actually just in the message the video footage itself sends makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. it also allowed me to get a renewed appreciation for my once favorite band and has allowed me to see this band in a new and more positive light rather than associating them with the darkest period of my life. so here ya go:

all of this has also caused me to realize that i have some truly excellent people in my life :-).  i celebrated my two year anniversary with myself earlier this month; two years of amazing times and i actually REMEMBER ALL OF THEM! with that said, it helped bring about this change. with that said, i will now provide you with somethin for hump day 🙂
