still here. still blogging. but not nine-to-five.

Well it’s March. It’s even a new season (although it still feels like Winter) and I haven’t blogged nearly as much as I’ve wanted to in 2013 . In thinking of what to blog about, I started thinking about the blogs I pretend are about my pretend So-Cal life read frequently…

There are a few blogs I follow with the same regularity as which I brush my teeth: Run Eat Repeat, Peanut Butter Fingers, MizFit Online: thank you all for making me jealous inspired by your life filled with writing, fitness, food, and free goodies from companies that send you stuff to review on your blog.

To those *lovely* bloggers: I am 100% envious of your “job.”

Don’t get me wrong– I am sure there are less than celeb-esque moments of their careers… but I am most inconveniently reminded of  the perks I have imagined when some kid’s parent is screaming profanities at me for giving him consequences. For what you ask? For screaming profanities at someone else (insert “apple not falling far from tree” reference here) or any other myriad of crazy situations.

My three favorite aforementioned bloggers are all experts in fitness, they take selfies in cute bargains from cute boutiques, they review local food, they make creative meals and include pics of what they eat, and post pics of their Garmins showing runs of distances that I don’t even drive.

I am not an expert in the fitness arena. I don’t take selfies. I scarf down my food before it has a chance of being in a photo op. I did log 5 miles on the dreadmill today to prep for the Cooper River Bridge Run but that in no way ‘expert.’  I am not currently testing products for any company and writing about them. I cook eat what the husband cooks for me and half the time it lands on a paper plate (not pic-worthy– even if it is Instagramed to the hilt).

I am however willing to be picked up as a free-lance blogger. And by free-lance I mean, pay me or at least send me free sh*t. At least then I’ll have something to blog about.


“get over it.” cooper river bridge run 2013

Charleston better get ready– I’ve registered for the 2013 Cooper River Bridge Run. Ok, so maybe I had better get ready. And get ready to run with 39,999 of my newest friends, I will. It’ll be my first 10K so I’ve got to increase distance. I’ve been saying that for awhile but it’s time to put my money where my mouth is get my shoes on and pound the payment. I’m super pumped about the race.

We’ve booked a quaint b&b downtown (what b&b isn’t quaint?!) and little miss Berkeley will be going, too. I’ve only been to Charleston once before and I’m looking forward to eating and drinking my way through the city exploring and finding out what the “holy city” has to offer. Any suggestions for must dos??
