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! 🙂

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. 😀
