Friday Five: June Favorites!

It’s been a while since I’ve linked up with the DC Trifecta Mar, Cynthia, and Courtney but to celebrate the middle of the year, I figured, it’s time! πŸ™‚

June was a good month.

1st: I reached the century mark in mileage!

Ended the month on the 'mill

This month of pre-season training was a success as I’m feeling good going into marathon training next week. I’m ready as I’ll ever be for Hanson’s craziness, eeek!!!

2nd : I tricked my kids into eating fruit. Now my son LOVES fruit and chooses that over regular dessert any day, but my daughter–she loves her chocolate. One afternoon in June, I was about ready to chop an apple when I got a bright idea. My kids love fries (just like mommy) and it occurred to me that I could cut the apple to look like In-n-Out fries.

VOILA!! Apple fries!!

VOILA!! Apple fries!!

The kids ate it up!! Of course, I sold it by saying, “Wow!! Check out these apple fries!!” Apple, gone!!

3rd : I continued my Mom-of-the-YearMonth status by finding these amazingly cheap PJ Masks costumes on Amazon. If you’re not a parent, these three characters are from a Disney cartoon that my kids (and all kids) are obsessed with. When they came in the mail, my kids seriously thought I was the coolest mom in the world.

4th : The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA Championship. This was seriously history. My brother and sister live in Ohio so I’m a Cavs fan by association. Plus, I’ve always liked Lebron (except during the whole “Taking my talents to South Beach Fiasco”).

Game 7 was a mini party at my house and a scream-fest the entire game. When it ended, I was left with no voice but no matter–we got the win!!


5th : I got to meet Corey and see The Goonies on the big screen! Our movie theatre shows classic movies every Tuesday and last Tuesday they were showing The Goonies with a special appearance by Corey Feldman. I of course had to go.

My buddy and I got there super early and already the lines to take a picture with him were looooong. We were told we wouldn’t be able to meet him.


But Goonies never say die.

We ended up in a line near where he was doing interviews and were able to snag a picture as he walked by us. Then, my buddy bought a CD of his (who knew Corey sang?) which guaranteed him an autograph.


Big time cheesin'

The inside of his CD…..yeah……

It was a super fun night and the movie never gets old. Such a good one.


Overall, June was pretty happening. πŸ˜€

  1. I was doing a puzzle when my husband was watching game 7 and he was rooting for ummm… not the Cavs, the other team (I couldn’t care less about sports!!!) so of course I was cheering along with him as I did my puzzle. But then when he said the Cavs NEVER won a championship in any sport I was like… awwww now I kind of want them to have their moment!!!! πŸ™‚ Glad they got it!!!

  2. Congrats on hitting 100 miles for the month!!! That is SO fun that your theater was showing Goonies and how cool that Corey Feldman was there! I love the picture of you “with” him :):)

    • Well, technically, I’ve always been a Cavs fan (which was why I was upset with HOW he left). My family has lived in Dayton for 15 years. So yeah, I was happy when he returned and forgave him, lol!
