**Next week I will be a guest blogger for one of my favorite girls, Alyssa, at See This Girl Run! I am SO EXCITED! Alyssa is easily the coolest person on the internet these days! She is training for her first marathon (which is now less than a month away!)…. and she literally has the most fantastic and genuine heart! So please go check her out NOW and come find me over there next week!
So yesterday I moved everything into my apartment! You know what? It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong… it was awful, but it definitely had the potential to be absolutely miserable. I am very lucky I have my dad, uncle, and grandpa to help! They were tremendous!
Obviously unpacking like that I was in running shorts, old running shoes, sports bra, and a dri-fit shirt with my hair in a messy bun and headband. Actually, moving or not, that is a pretty standard outfit for me. Anyways…
While I was in line waiting for the office to open to pick up keys, I got to talking to a Phd student who ran his own company for 10 years before deciding to go back for another degree. Yadda yadda yadda we were talking and killing time. Office opened, keys were handed over, and I ran out to the Uhaul to begin unpacking before it got any hotter outside (at 9am it was 65 degrees!! So awesome!)
I didn’t think of him again until my dad, uncle, grandpa, and I were all sweaty and struggling in the Uhaul when this guy drives around and out of the car window hands me his business card saying we should keep in touch. What?!?! Your business card? Right now while I am balancing a box of breakable dishes in one arm and my box of bathroom essentials in the other? Anyways, my 3 wonderful worker men just stared at me really confused and I awkwardly mumbled an “Oh, great, thanks…”
It was slightly weird. I shoved the card in my sports bra, because like I said, I had no pockets, no purse and my hands were full. The whole exchange was… hmm. I think it was just really not the right time for that, you know? I literally had sweat dripping down my nose. And if my dad, uncle, and grandpa could have been absent instead of staring at us totally confused, that would have helped too. Oh well… Whatcha gonna do?!
I guess I have friendly neighbors who are very intelligent in their pursuits of Phd’s!
Other than that, yesterday was a rest day (leaving me excited to run today!) and I worked for hours on a gift for my sister that I will be giving her when I visit NYC over labor day weekend! 🙂 Here is sneak of part of that gift…
I go back to my apartment today to organize and what not!!
Have a great Sunday people! Relax, have fun, and be merry!
Any awkward hit on/asked out/date stories?
What is your usual outfit?
