Three Things Thursday

1. I have the best fiance in the whole world... :-D

Future hubs ALWAYS finds the prettiest flowers for me!
I think I've taken pictures of every single bouquet of flowers that Mark has ever given me.

2. Work has been extremely hectic for me this week, especially today because it's month-end.  With my parents visiting me this weekend, my free time has been spent cleaning.  I still have a few things left to do before they arrive tomorrow evening about 7:00.  I hope next week will be much more relaxing, especially on Tuesday because it's my birthday. :)

3. Anyone sign up for this virtual race?

I'm trying to cut down on race costs this year, so running free virtual races is a great way to save moola and get that race fix.

Mark and I did register recently for the Medtronic TC 1 Mile, which will take place Thursday, May 12.  I'm hoping for a PR (sub-7:25) this year, but if I can get under 8:00 I'll be happy.  I'm also eying the Rock 'N' Roll Savannah Half-Marathon in November.  My brother Ryan used to live in Savannah and my family and I always loved going to visit him.  I've been wanting to go back for years.

Questions for you:
1. Do you like jelly beans?  If so, any particular flavors?
--I'm partial to the citrus ones: green (lime), yellow (lemon) and orange.
2. What are your favorite flowers?
--I love roses and stargazer lilies.
3. Do you like to do virtual races?  Why or why not?
--I've done one so far and had a lot of fun with it.  I've signed up for two more.


  1. Beautiful flowers!!!

  2. Oh yay! The flowers are gorgeous. So sweet of the future hubs!! And yay for virtual races. I will have to look into it!

  3. Way to go future hubz!!!! Beautiful flowers. Hopefully you're feeling all better and you can enjoy your parents visit and your birthday!

    1. I don't love jelly beans, but I enjoy cherry or fruit punch ones. My husband loves the buttered popcorn ones which I hadn't eaten before I got married.

    2. I like tulips - probably my fav. I think it goes back to my my grandma's tulip garden. She had what seemed like a million up against her white house - absolutely stunning rainbow of colors!

    3. Can I be honest and admit this publicly? I don't understand virtual races. I know - I'm a dork, but I see people say they are doing them, but I don't really know what they are. I'm off your blog reading list now aren't I due to my total uncoolness!!! Sorry!

    Have a great Friday!

  4. Wonderful fiance!!! I just enterd the Jelly Bean Virtual too!

  5. I'll be at RnR Savannah!

    Jelly beans are okay, can take 'em or leave 'em. My favorite flowers are gerbera daisies. I have never done a virtual race. Don't know much about them actually.

  6. I like Brach's spicy jelly beans esp. the black.

  7. Beautiful picture.

    1. I have never eaten jelly beans but I promise to try;
    2. My favorite flowers are the sunflowers;
    3. I like the virtual races because they are a way to keep in touch with far friends.
    Now i am going to check the J.B. virtual race.

  8. I grew out of jelly beans LOOONG ago.

    I'm not sure if I have a favorite flower. If so, it would probably be something very exotic or unique.

    I like the idea of virtual races, but most require a GPS for verification which I don't have. The Jelly Bean does not though, so I will definitely enter. Thanks!!

  9. cool! I am going to look into the virtual race, because I've never done one!

  10. Gorgeous flowers! Well done, Mark! :)

    I'm not a big fan of jelly beans. I prefer skittles or ju jubes.
