I guess I’m not newsworthy….

Well y’all, I was expecting to show you bonafide proof of the shopping abilities that my mom and I possess but sadly, that won’t be the case.

You see, on Saturday mom and I hit up the annual city wide garage sales of Indian Rocks Beach and we finished at the last sale which was at the church.  A reporter from the local paper came up to us and asked if he could interview us and take our photo for the paper…..uh, hell YES!


Anyway he took a few pictures, asked us some questions and wrote down all our pertinents and such and then told us which edition it would be in.  So this morning I got up at 5AM, (not to look for the article, it’s just when I normally get up, I swear), and I found the paper online, scrolled to page 3 and saw this:


Bargain Seekers, wtf? And no picture of me and mom?

I guess the editor thought that a new bait shop trumped the garage sale story.

Whatevs….I don’t need no stinkin’ local paper to tell me I’m the undisputed champ of Power Shopping! I’ve got the credit card bills to prove it bitch!

For the past two days I’ve gotten to 3 and a half minutes in the plankathon. I’m going to refer to it as the #plankathon until I reach my goal.  Because plankathon is a lot easier to hashtag than #AllIWantForChristmasIsA5MinutePlankAndOtherStuff, don’t you think? Yeah, me too. #plankathon for life… or the month of December, whatever it takes.


Preach it Ludwig!

And I can’t let you go today without telling you about this one local runner, Meredith Mikell, who did what so many of us runners do from time to time, she went out for a run and decided to take a different route. A route that she hadn’t run in quite a while.

And I know what you’re thinking, but this is a good story.

A short time after she began running she noticed huge amounts of smoke coming out of a house and as she got closer she realized the house was on fire. Thanks to her quick reaction, the mother and daughter who were sleeping inside that house made it out safely. You can read about the story here.

So what are you up to today? Got anything exciting going on?
Have you ever made the papers?  What for?
