this weekend

a fast run on the buehler trail + a quiet evening with my dvr. an early saturday morning workout. the 6th birthday bash sale at bull city running co. scoring a new pair of saucony's for $40 + snagging some new running apparel for cheap. tailgating with friends. a glorious nc state win. lowkey drinks at the goat with a handful of favorites. having our minds blown by our friend [magic] mike. crawling into bed before too late. much needed sleep on sunday morning. another run on the trail. stocking up on a favorite summer beer found on special at target for $3.99. realizing i’m a terrible gardener. spending the afternoon with the guy. [insert heart eye emoji here] picking up rhyan from his boy scouts camping trip. cooking a big batch of bolognese + crying over the panthers loss to the steelers. 

all in all, a damn good weekend.

friday five

.5   things with the guy have exceeded my expectations + i truly couldn’t be happier. i feel i’ve found a diamond in the rough, and that’s a first for me. 

.4   excited to attend the first nc state football tailgate of the year tomorrow! i was out of town for the first two home games, so bring on the food + beers. 

3.   equally excited about hangin’ with leah + molly this weekend. i have a sneaking suspicion we could get into some shenanigans, so watch out!

.2   rhyan’s headed to boone after school for a camping trip with his boy scout troop, he was so excited when we said our goodbyes this morning. 

.1   obsessed with this song, for a very special reason.

sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. as lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. you just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. you meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. i don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.
