Fantastic Four Thing FRIDAY!!

29 Mar

It is Friday again. How did that happen. It seems to come quicker and quicker every week.

1-Yesterday, a friend sent an email to a group of us that are doing Wildflower. Countdown: 35 days until go time! The title of the email was: Oh Crap! The thread was pretty funny. There was about 8 of us on it. It will be the first time for all of them. 4th time for me. I assured them they will be well-trained up, ready to hit the Nasty Grade and all other “fun” stuff pertaining to the Woodstock of Triathlon!

I accidentally found this, this morning.

I promptly sent this to the group.

2-I went to Starbucks to get a breakfast sandwich because I had a coupon. They always have the daily horoscopes out.
horo
I am pretty sure they are talking about my Nuun application. Dang it!!

3-I was dying to make sugar cookies this weekend. I did not get to make any at Christmas. (I blame you…TT Lee!!) 🙂 I thought it would be fun to make them for Easter. I thought it would be too much work. THEN I came across this recipe. Sugar Cookie Bars! HELLO!!

It is a GIANT sugar cookie!!

I will tell you what I like about it:
1-It has the consistency of a sugar cookie.
2-It tastes like a sugar cookie.
3-It has cream cheese in it, but you can not taste it.
4-I did not have to chill it or cut shapes out of it.
5-Super easy!

I will tell you what I do not like about it:
1-The almond extract (It is ok but I will delete it the next time I make it because this recipe is going in my permanent collection.

If you are lucky enough to be helping me with my “project” tomorrow you will get one!!

4-San Francisco is one of my favorite places to visit. There are so many things to do. Good food and restaurants. Awesome ice cream places!! I will be there one week from TODAY to celebrate my 34th birthday and to run the Rock in Roll inaugural San Francisco 1/2 marathon. Watch out San Fran…Leslie is coming to visit!

The route is going to be awesome! We get to run over the Golden Gate Bridge. I cannot express to you how excited I am to be running this on my birthday!

How was your Friday?
