Friday Things

Hi everyone πŸ™‚ I feel like the weeks kinda drag sometimes, but then I turn around and I’m writing another it’s Friday again post! And it’s June!Β That means it’s officially summer duh! (Check out the reasons I love summer) Yesterday, I meant to post but I was having some internet difficulties and ended up just giving up and figuring I’d get to it today…whatever works. But anyways here are my Friday things for the week!

1. Mad Men

I’m definitely late on this Bandwagon, but now I’m a total addict. My mom bought the seasons for my dad for Christmas because they were really cheap at Target. I finished the first season yesterday and am already 4 episodes into the 2nd one..gahhh they are so addicting! the story line is so intriguing I can’t stop watching. It also totally makes me thankful to grow up in this era and not in the 1960’s when women were told what to do and who to be all the time. Who else watches?? Does anyone else feel bad for Betty Draper ALL THE TIME or at least in the first 2 seasons?? But she’s also a little of a loose cannon! This show also kind of makes your hate men, btw. But i guess it was just the times. And I can’t help but love and hate Don Draper at the same time! Does anyone else feel this way?? Tell me you some of guys watch too!Β 

2. Running

Yesterday I had a good 4 mile run! Good and run for me don’t normally belong in the same sentence! It didn’t start of that great, but my average pace ended up being one of my best after I was feeling like I was doggin’ it the whole time..woo hoo..except after- my foot hurt. Why, oh, why can’t my foot just feel good?? One of many reasons I belong on a bike! But, I will probably keep running until my foot falls off.

3. These Champion Shorts

Champion C9 Running shorts are on sale this week for like $11! I got a pair for the first time and ran in them last night! They’re pretty awesome and they don’t ride up! I would definitely compare them to the Nike Tempo shorts and they half the price, I got black but they had a ton of fun colors.

4. Golf

I’ve definitely got the golfing bug lately! My dad and I have gone out 3 times since Sunday! such a great hobby to have..and we try to walk most times for the extra exercise πŸ™‚ I’ve also been playing well, so now of course I’m getting addicted to that. i wish there was more time in the day! That’s a picture of last night of a golf shot I hit..and guess who was closer to the hole!!?? I’ll give you a hint: she write’s this babbles blog.Β 

5. June Photo a day

I’m going to try my best to do this June Photo-a-day! It looks like fun and I’ve always wanted to try it. So that being said:

1. Morning

Follow me on Instagram @KatieeAnd!!Β 

Today’s workout: After the 4 miles yesterday and considering I can’t run too often else I get a crippled foot- I will probably stick to a bike ride and a strength circuit.

This weekend Drew and I actually get to see each other!! yay, not for too long but long enough! πŸ™‚ We are planning on going to a Pro Bike Race in Philly on Sunday so hopefully that works out because I think it would be something awesome to see!

I hope everyone has a good weekend!Β 

  • What are you up to this weekend? Do you have any random things from the week you want to share? Who watches Mad Men!? If you don’t-you should!Β

  1. Glad you had a good run, can’t wait to have one of those myself πŸ™‚

    I like the photo a day thing, can’t wait to see yours! Nice instagram on the golf photo and congrats on that awesome shot!

    PS. I wanted to ask you since you bike alot.. I want to buy a bike (yay, finally!) and don’t know whats a good brand thats not crazy expensive. Any suggestions?

    • yay! glad you asked!! the bike i got is actually a ‘no-name catalog brand’ which (as drew told me) just like a low end name brand bike which is all i really need since i’m not trying to win ironmans or anything and just starting out.

      I got my bike from Nashbar (http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product_10053_10052_535095_-1___202401)
      for about $500 and they shipped it right to my door. (However, not all together so you would have to take it to a bike shop to be put together for you). They also have a next model up for about $800 so depends on what you want at the moment. Road bikes are kinda expensive and this is the best deal i could find! also try craigslist! i bet in NYC they have some good options. hope this helps πŸ™‚

      • Thanks for all the info, I love your bike (especially because its pretty blue)! Yea road bikes aren’t cheap!! I definitely don’t need the newer model that doesn’t bother me at all, I’m not trying to win ironmans either haha. I just want to get myself out on the road! I’ll check out all my options, hopefully I’ll get one soon πŸ™‚ Looks like a great website, bookmarked it. Thanks so much!

  2. Wait no way I have those exact shorts. I am wearing them now. I swear. Nice run girl! Love those runs that just feel so right. I have yet to get into madmen. I feel like the last thing I need is to get sucked into more tv. I totally failed may photo a day. June looks fun though!
