What’s on my mind today

by Meghann on October 7, 2011



Unnecessary and expensive, but also hilarious and suddenly very high on my ‘must have’ list. πŸ˜‰

YouTube Hair Tutorials

Especially LetsMakeItUp1. She’s so cute and relatable – love her!

Now, if only I was as successful as she is.


Hair fail! Try, try, and try again – right?

Blogger Baby Watch

Sabrina gave birth to a beautiful, baby boy last week and Emily and Kristen aren’t far behind! I’m on pins and needles waiting for a ‘we’re on our way to the hospital’ tweet!

New York City Marathon

Who wants to run 2012 with me?!?! πŸ˜‰


I feel like this week has been a week of leftovers.


The best thing about rotisserie chickens is the fact that they are the meal that keeps on giving. πŸ™‚

I made a sandwich with a portion of the left overs and spicy mustard – simple and classic – for lunch.


With frozen corn and okra on the side.


What’s on your mind?

I meant to say this last night when I read your post – I was in the grocery store the other day and someone was buying a rotisserie chicken and I suddenly got a HUGE urge to get one! I can’t remember the last time (if ever) I bought one but needless to say I definitely laughed when I came back and read your post for the night!

Also? Those underwear are TOTALLY necessary, haha. Those are SO the stupid little things that I can’t help but buy.

Now, this may just be me, but I think I’ll pass on having my “rundies” say “Easy 6.” πŸ˜‰

I love the idea of Rundies, but I would never pay $65 for cotton underwear. I wish they were more affordable because I think they are really cool.

On my mind? My plans for a half marathon next year! I’m signing up for it next week! For sure!

Rundies are def on my “if I had a bunch of extra money” list. I’m headed to the PDX expo today even though I’m not running (just volunteering) and I might pick up some fun running stuff.

And since I just posted about by new love for competing in bun huggers yesterday, these rundies are a must have for me. If they could only make them a little more form fitting they would be hysterical to compete in. How fun. Thanks for sharing.

Oh my goodness! Rundies are too cute! So are your curls!! Haha πŸ™‚

14 Karen @ Run Shop Travel October 7, 2011 at 4:46 pm

I am planning to run NYC 2012! Since I live there I am doing my 9 races + 1 volunteer to get guaranteed entry next year; I’ve gotten denied in the lottery twice already! The other option is to run for charity, which I considered and would probably do in the future if I want to run it again!

I’m going to enter the lottery for the NYC Marathon 2012! I’m hoping that I get it, but I know odds are not good. I’d love to do a long run together sometime if we both get in!!

The fartlek rundies made me giggle a little. Hi, I’m five.

I have a lot on my mind—specifically how much work I need to get done this weekend. Oh, grad school. Just end already!

17 Michelle @ Crazy*Running*Legs October 7, 2011 at 5:25 pm

If I survive Savannah (things are looking up!), I will definitely be registering for NY in 2012!! Everyone in my running group says it’s amazing and I MUST do it.

I probably won’t run it if I’m pregnant (high possibility, but not planning anything around it) so I’d defer if I actually got picked. It definitely doesn’t hurt to register.

Love the undies!

Happy hour+a martini soon, and the fact that is was my last day at my current job! Starting a new one in a couple weeks- woo!

19 Kristen @ The Concrete Runner October 7, 2011 at 5:40 pm

Haha! Thanks! I’m still here though. We are *praying* for the baby to come this weekend – and of course, you’re going to be gone! She’ll probably come as soon as you are no longer in contact with the rest of the world and drinking a margarita in the middle of the ocean! Actually, let’s hope that’s about right… the sooner the better!

I really think I need those Rundies! So cute!

I’ll be sparsely checking my email, so I’m crossing my fingers for good news! πŸ™‚

21 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 7, 2011 at 5:40 pm

what’s on my mind is that i’m so jealous of the okra! I can’t find it in stores this week so I’m waiting for the farmers market tomorrow where I fully intend to hunt some down! apparently these midwesterners don’t understand how good it is…

I froze a big batch of fresh okra a while back and that was the last of it. Bye Bye okra! πŸ™

I love those rundies!! I wonder if they make shorts like those..

rundies <3
too cute!

i am running nycm in 2012! i did the NYRR 9+1 program to guarantee an entry! it would be awesome to have a bunch of bloggers run it!

26 Amylynn October 7, 2011 at 7:38 pm

i will totally run NY 2012 with you! I got in in 2010, deferred bc of a stress fracture, repaid the entry fee in 2011 to run only to find out that it is on the same date as my good friends bridal party. have to defer AGAIN! Most definitely running 2012! After roughly $600 in registration fees (about $200 per year..), it has to be the best race ever, right?

27 Rachel October 7, 2011 at 8:04 pm

I’m entering the lottery for NYC Marathon 2012, for sure!!!! What’s on my mind? I had the day off but was still crazy busy. I hate that. Hoping for some down time tonight.

i’m dying to run nyc, I’ve been rejected from the lottery 2x already but not consecutive years(b/c I missed the application deadline this yr) so I have to either win the lotto and get rejected for the next 2 yrs. awesome.

31 April B. October 7, 2011 at 9:29 pm

OMG!!! That video makes me want to run NYC too!! It’s on my bucket list…

On a side note, I was in Chicago for work this week. Saw all of the signage and set up being done for the marathon. Made me wish I was running it again.

I’ll have to check out that hair/makeup site….I love learning new tips. I saw on twitter that you ordered hot rollers. Did you like them? Is that picture from those hot rollers? I was thinking of getting them but wasn’t sure. πŸ™‚

34 Meghann October 7, 2011 at 10:48 pm

I think hot rollers were made for people with thin hair who want volume, I’ve tried them twice and both time I end up with pageant hair. Third time’s a charm? πŸ˜‰

I would love to run New York! It is definitely on the marathon bucket list!
On my mind- how perfect the weather has been this week in Chicago, how jealous I am of the marathoners ready to run their hearts out tomorrow, but looking forward to kicking butt at the Indianapolis Marathon next Saturday! Have a FANTASTIC time on your vacation next week!

These rundies are fantastic! Definitely unnecessary but SO FUN as well:) Thanks for sharing!
