I am going to the….


Carnival  It was Quadmania this weekend at UMBC!

I am NOT a roller coaster or any kind of a ride person. Prior to last years event the only ride I had ever been on was the merry-go-around…..

With the convincing powers of a certain friend that is a boy I managed to ride the Ferris wheel and the Zipper. I am pretty sure I lost two years of my life.

I also rode something else for the very first time!

Another thing that I am also not is an animal person. Not sure why, but I am pretty terrified of them.

Sooooo I decided to ride one!

Note the VERY terrified face!

Many shenanigans later it was time to make Banana Bread!

Jamescooking Jpizzle and his epic bread pan making skills!

I was seriously impressed, I even managed to break his master piece. I decided I was better off with just standing around and looking pretty.

I however did get to enjoy some super yummie whole grain banana bread!

We rounded off our weekend with a walk to the campus tennis courts

And a mile run around campus with some butt kicking stairs!

Picture 112Meet Baby G! My 21st b-day gift to myself. Now I know I am not a long distance runner but this baby may be the COOLEST thing ever! I have no concept of how far or fast I am going outdoors, so I use it to steadily increase my time and mileage! 

Question: Do you ever buy birthday presents for yourself? If so, what are they?

  1. YAY I am so happy that you like it!

    I am so jealous!!!!!! I always wanted to ride a elephant!

  2. I love your face when you’re on the elephant! Too funny! I would freak out too! In India, I had a random guy come up to me in the street with his elephant. He asked me if I wanted to ride it for 20 rupees haha! I said no, but I wish I had said yes!

    Happy Birthday!! When is it?! I buy myself gifts all the time 🙂 I’m a brat!

  3. I’ve never bought a bday present for myself, but I totally gifted myself the same Garmin for Christmas!

  4. So jealous of Carnival AND your GARMIN. Super exciting.

  5. That elephant looks so sad 😦
    But that Garmin is just beatiful…I think I am going to cave tonight…hahaha

  6. I’m not going to lie..carnivals freak me out, especially all the rides! Looks like you had fun, though!

    I would love a Garmin..hope you enjoy using it. I’ve heard great things from other runners. It’s really a useful training tool.
