Yesterday, I had to tidy up the house really well because my landlord put the house on the market, and a realtor had to come take pictures. So I used this as an awesome excuse to take pictures so I can give you all a tour of my home. Plus, I’m only here for 47 more days, and I’d like to remember every bit of this wonderful house 🙂
(If you want to skip the tour and just hear about today’s run, scroll to the bottom of this post)
So this is what you see when you walk in the front door. My living area and dining area.
I love my Willow Tree figurine collection.
Now let’s venture in to the kitchen…
I love having a bunch of stuff on my fridge for some reason 🙂
I was making some hot tea with my new Tuffy Steeper from The Tea Spot. Stay tuned for a product review!
All of my knives are stuffed in to my KaPoosh. Instead of having an expensive knife block, you can put all of your knives in one place any which way you want.
Right off of the living room is a half bathroom.
Now let’s head on up to the second floor where my office is…
I rarely work in here though.
There’s also a guest bedroom on the second floor, but there’s nothing in there but boxes anxiously awaiting to be packed for the big move!
There’s also a guest bathroom.
Now let’s go up to the third floor. I put these scrapbooking frames together right around Black Friday last year.
The entire third floor is the master bedroom and bathroom. I LOVE the French doors!
I definitely don’t have enough furniture to fill this space!
His and hers closets… too bad I don’t have a “his” 😦
A sitting room where my stuffed kids reside 😉
I had big plans about redecorating this room, but I didn’t stay here long enough to put any real effort in to it.
So that’s my home… hope you enjoyed the tour 🙂
Now on to today’s training run, which was a 3 miler. I set out around 6:20 to conquer the task of running all 3 miles without any walk breaks! Success!!!
The negative self-talk began within the first half mile. But I tried to keep telling myself I had to keep my promise. I had to come back here and post about what a success this run was. I reminded myself that this is the beginning of my marathon training, and I kept going. I pushed through the rough spots, slowed down when I needed to, and sped up when I could handle it. I finished 3 miles in 33:11, a 11:03 pace. I really want to work on my speed!
An obligatory after-the-workout picture…
And I need your opinion… do either one of my knees look swollen to you?
They’re feeling fine because I’m icing at least once a day, normally before bed. But does one of my knees look more puffy than the other?
And now, I leave you with this…
