The Year of Running

We did it!

One year of running.

We may not have been the fastest girls, but we had a great time!

Here's to another year of running.

Step 1

Folks, you are looking at the start of the vegetable garden. In those containers are tiny lettuce and onions seeds. Aren't they cute? Truth be told, their cuteness factor will dramatically drop when I receive my first electricity bill.

The City of Roses

For the past five years Sister #1 and I have celebrated MLK weekend in Portland.

You might be asking yourself...why Portland?

Why not.

Each year we try to find something new in Portland. Last year, our search lead us to Kava. If you remember, I was quoted saying Kava was like drinking dirt. It's awful, don't try Kava.
This year, we discovered Rogue Maple Bacon Beer.  This was a HUGE improvement from last year's Kava. HUGE.

Well, another Portland trip under our belt. Thank you Portland for being such a great host. We'll see you next year!

Chili Bowl

Last weekend, I attended the Chili Bowl. 
What is the Chili Bowl? 
I'm so happy you asked. 
Blogger World, this is the Chili Bowl...

It's a four day car race. 
It's loud.
It's dirty.
It's fast.
And...it's kind of exciting to watch.

New year, new Ramblings. Enjoy....

Last week I read a very interesting article from Huffington Post's website. Blogger World, did you know R&B singer R.Kelly owes $4.8 million in back taxes? Yes, $4.8 million! Did you know Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne owe more than $2 million in back taxes? Also, if you keep up with Hollywood gossip, like me, you heard Lindsay Lohan owes the IRS money too. Her total is reported to be $230,000.
This past election Hollywood celebrities were preaching loud and proud about how they wanted to pay higher taxes. Do you remember? My question to you, shouldn't they work on paying their taxes before preaching loud and proud?

Since Christmas is over you can find bargains everywhere. My best find has been at Target. I hit their Christmas food aisle. Lord have mercy, I hit the jackpot. I found Stacey's Pita Chips for $.29. Currently, I have 5 bags at my house.

Confession, every once in a while I watch The Kardashians. Now before you judge me, hear me out. Sometimes, I can relate to The Kardashian sisters. For instance, I completely understand how Kim felt when Rob borrowed her Bentley without asking. You do not understand how fired up I can get when The Sisters borrow my Target shirts without asking!

Tomorrow, January 10th, is Houseplant Appreciation Day. Please remember to water your plants. Thank you.

Soon and very soon, I will be attending the 27the annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals. It's my first time to attend the Chili Bowl, and I am extremely excited. No, I really am excited! This will be another cultural experience, and from what I've heard a great party. I love parties! Also, it's a car race that features really good looking guys. See, there's nothing to dislike about this event.

FYI....The Sisters and I have discovered SmartWool running socks. If you run, you should own these socks.

Sadly, I must end this post.

Over and Out
