Rock Me Mama Like A Wagon Wheel

I haven't done a "Tell Me About It Tuesday" in a while, so here we go!

Let me tell you about...

*How I signed up for the Armadillo Dash back in December, and totally forgot that it was on March 3rd, and March 3rd happens to be this weekend, and I kinda sorta haven't been doing any real "training" in preparation...

*How not only is the 5K I am unprepared for this weekend...but it also starts at 7 a.m., and we live about 30-40 minutes away from where the race will be held.  Who the hell has a race at 7 a.m.??

*I get a "free" day off because I have a student teacher, and I am going to use it this Friday!  No idea what I'm going to do...but I'm going to enjoy the hell out of it!

*Next week (March 8th) is my 28th birthday, and will also be a 1/2 day at school and the beginning of Spring Break!  Who doesn't have any plans but is excited anyway?  This girl!

*The fact that I ordered the Advocare 10 Day Cleanse that Mel did, for myself and Christopher, and am now realizing that if we were to start it this week when it arrives, it will include the day of my birthday and the weekend when we are supposed to go here to our favorite place or try Veritas.

*How I'm torn over whether or not I want to start the cleanse this week, knowing I will end up cheating (I know my birthday isn't a valid excuse for cheating on the cleanse, but I'm just being honest because I know my girlfriends and I will be celebrating when we get off, and I know Christopher and I will be going to dinner...) or just wait until after Spring Break when I know I will work harder at sticking to the guidelines.  I don't want to half ass it, or as our favorite mean bish Jillian says, 'phone it in'.  Ahh decisions decisions...

*Kason and Kutter start baseball practice this week.  They are no longer playing teeball (this would have been their third year because of when their birthday falls, and they got moved up to machine pitch even though they will be the youngest ones).  I am excited and nervous about this.  They are still babies in my eyes and I'm not ready for all this 'big kid' stuff!

*How Christopher was asked to be a Coach for their baseball team, and he said yes.  Just when I think I can't love him anymore...he goes and does something like that.

*How yesterday when I got home from picking them up, I sat down for a few minutes before I started dinner (if you call tuna helper and green beans dinner) and Kason sat in my lap and as I was rocking him he started singing, "Rock me Mama like a wagon wheel...Rock me Mama any way you feel...Heyyyyyyyy...Mama rock me!"  Now, if you are not a fan of country music, this will not be funny to you.  It's an older song by Old Crow Medicine Show (that I love) and Darius Rucker has now covered it.  It's a great song, but it's even greater that my child knows the words and decided to sing them as I was rocking him :)  Now if I could just get him to stop singing, "I like big butts and I cannot lie"...

Rock Me Mama Like a Wagon Wheel - Tank top -
I'm going to need this for the summer...

Go rock your Tuesday :) 


  1. I say start the cleanse later so you can give it your all. Are you running with a group on Sunday? I'm debating signing up, I know it's last minute but it will force me to run on Sunday!!

  2. I love that song! Good luck on your race this weekend! You'll do beautifully--5Ks are so much fun, the race day high will definitely help!

  3. yaya for race day! I am also born in march! I think you should start the cleanse whenever you feel like you can dedicate yourself to it (i'm starting march 4th!)

  4. I just LOVE your blog! I'm a new GFC follower :)

  5. Love that he was singing that song.

    Amanda and I are starting the cleanse probably after your spring break so you could od it with us. Ill know for sure soon!

  6. Don't do the cleanse on your birthday... wait until it's over. :)

  7. I'm with everybody else.....nobody wants to be cleansing on their bday!!

  8. I love Darius Rucker's cover of that song. I love Darius period. I would wait too for that cleanse. I was going to start it, but I am going on vacation in 2 weeks and I will need a cleanse when I get back.

  9. I love that tank top! Happy early birthday and enjoy your Friday off! : )
