My June race for the "Run for the Bling Challenge" was last Saturday, June 11th.  The Simpsonville Sunrise 8K.  Though the race started at 6:30AM it was still very humid and warm outside.  The course was more challenging than I anticipated.  The first 2 miles was flat and then we turned into a neighborhood with rolling hills for the next 3 miles.  One house in the neighborhood had a sprinkler set up on their lawn that made a huge waterfall for the runners to go through.   A refreshing thing I might add!!   My goal was to finish in under an hour and I did just that. 

After we finished the race everyone came back over to the house for a post race brunch.  I prepared Shrimp and Grits the night before and everyone else brought their favorite breakfast item.  Our Motto for the day  was "Will Run For Mimosas".... the after race cocktail we all had to go with our breakfast.   It was the perfect way to start the morning!!

Today has just been another Lazy Sunday.  I’ve managed to catch up on a few movies.  Black Swan (I may be one of the few out there that actually enjoyed it)  Now I’m watching Julie and Julia.  Maybe it will inspire me in the kitchen…..

Here’s to Lazy Sunday’s on the Couch.


  1. The Mimosa's! you forgot to mention "Will Run for Mimosa's!"

  2. Love your ABCs! I could go for some shrimp and grits! The first time I had grits was when our softball team went to Myrtle Beach for a Spring Break tournament. We had them for breakfast and I had a great 2 games....ate them every day we were there sure it was the grits! We don't have them up north here!
