1. Margaritas cure all. Even bronchospasms. <– Life fact.

2. The list of “Things I Ate After The Half Marathon” may or may not have included five plates of tapas, one dish of spicy churros, many scoops of dulce de leche ice cream, and two cupcakes for the road. So, basically ALL THE THINGS.

3. I may have taken the whole “calories don’t count after you run 13.1 miles” mentality a little too far.

4. Can we discuss how unsatisfying the season finale of Parenthood was?! Julia and Joel – are they or aren’t they? Amber – is she or isn’t she? Sarah and Hank – will they or won’t they? If there is not a season 6, I will cry.

5. Also, Lauren Graham will always be Lorelai Gilmore to me. Always.

6. Speaking of tv, the.boy and I have totally been slacking on Breaking Bad, through no fault of my own, might I add. Someone feels the need to watch a certain baseball team EVERY NIGHT. Even though they lose. EVERY NIGHT. Didn’t Albert Einstein say that the definition of insanity was doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? Yeah. Thought so.

7. So….remember that little ol’ bake sale to cure cancer I had last week? Well thanks to YOU, I surpassed my fundraising goal. By, like, a lot. And raised almost $1000!!! So THANK YOU!!

8. Have you guys started celebrating Fro-Yo Fridays yet this year? Let’s make it a thing.

9. Spring and rhubarb are like peanut butter and jelly. Meaning, I want this pie, with a side of this cake and a pitcher full of this sangria to wash it all down with.

10. But also a PB&J. On the side.

    Isn’t every Friday Fro-Yo Friday? There may or may not be a Red Mango on my walk to the subway…

  2. Jessie says:

    I kind of teared up when I saw you wrote the Mets loose everynight as they just beat my Phillies last night 🙁 🙁 Ha Ha!

    Happy Wednesday, dear!

  3. AH we are so addicted to Breaking Bad but I think we need to slow it down… I’ve been having way too many related dreams lol. We are already halfway through season 3 (I think). Oh yeah, and I may or may not be counting down the days until I can have a margarita…

  4. Couldn’t agree more on the rhubarb front!
    Congrats again on your half – hope you’re feeling better!!
    And also, hooray for the bake sale success!

  5. Megan says:

    I will cry if there’s no Parenthood season 6 too. Need to know what is happening! I keep going back and forth over what I want to happen with Joel and Julia. And yes, the Amber thing… cliffhanger.

  6. ugh they better renew Parenthood–I agree with the dissatisfying ending!

  7. Congratulations on raising that money! I would have eaten all the things after a half marathon too!

  8. I LOVE coffee talk Wednesday. Wait. Why isn’t my coffee in hand right now. I totally need to fix that!.
    I can’t believe you raised $1000. Way to go!
    I haven’t hcelebrated Fro-Yo Fridays. I need to check out that link and see what it’s all about. 🙂
    Have a beautiful Wednesday Joanne!

  9. I looooove parenthood but the boy won’t let me watch it when he’s around because he claims all of the yelling hurts his ears and now whenever I watch it the yelling starts to hurt mine wahhhhh. He ruins everything…

    I’ve never watched Parenthood, but I’ve thought about it because its on Netflix. I don’t know if I’ll be able to rid myself of the Lorelai Gilmore comparison, though. Gilmore girls, forever.

    I had no idea that rhubarb sangria was a thing, but now I want it (even though its 9 AM, and I’m in the middle of work). Yum!

  11. Anita says:

    Might try a margarita the next time I have an asthma flare-up (jk!!) Sounds like an awesome post-race feast!

  12. Mmmmm. . . rhubarb. It’s arrival every spring makes me so happy!

  13. YAYYYYYY for raising so much money, that is AWESOME! You deserve it! I also would stuff my face with EVERYTHING I wanted after a half marathon too!

  14. calories after marathons dont count for worries.

  15. I love the amount of times you’ve been able to work in the word, bronchospasms! I fell of the Parenthood train a while ago….I kind of want to watch the old episodes and catch up, whiiiiich is also making me want to have a Gilmore Girls marathon.

  16. so glad you reached your fundraising target, Joanne! 🙂

  17. Meg says:

    So glad to hear about your epic fundraising — that is awesome! I can’t wait to eat my cookies. I’ll be patient, but I need rosemary shortbread in my life. 🙂

    Also, agreed on Lauren Graham! Have you read her book Someday, Someday, Maybe? It’s totally like Lorelai Gilmore wrote a novel, and I LOVE IT.

  18. Kathleen Kennedy says:

    Congrats on the half marathon, on the fundraising, and on being hilarious!

  19. Margaritas do cure everything. I was just having this conversation yesterday with a friend!

  20. Heather says:

    The Parenthood finale was such a letdown!! I hate being left hanging – they have to have a Season 6 now.

    I’m also very excited about Rhubarb. I feel like I should try and grow some so we can have ridiculous amounts of it whenever we want.

  21. sandra says:

    Yes, I still don’t see rhubarb at my market – that darned winter!

  22. Tahnycooks says:

    I totally agree with you about the rhubarb and spring! One of my favorite flavors is rhubarb!

  23. Simply Life says:

    haha, I’ve been watching Parenthood too and can’t handle it this season!

  24. SallyBR says:

    DId you know PHil and I started watching Breaking Bad – or Baking Bread, as my mouth insists on saying – just a couple of weeks ago? We are on episode 17.

    that show is mesmerizing. Best acting ever. I am always nervous, stressed, hyperventilating in the end, but I cannot stop watching it.

    (I do realize we are the last couple to jump into this, so please no jokes or snide remarks. – thank you!)

  25. P says:

    Every Friday should be Fro-yo Friday 🙂 !

  26. First, your post-marathon binge sounds like my lunch. Second, congratulations on hitting your fundraising goal (and then some)! And third, now I want a PB&J. For second lunch, naturally.

  27. debbie says:

    I’m addicted to Breaking Bad and cannot believe how great it is! Where have I been all this time? We are on episode 3 of season 3….it is so hard to stop watching. I could just watch episode after episode…..

  28. Pam says:

    If I ran as much as you, I would eat SO MUCH FOOD!

    Phew! That was a close call. I haven’t watched Parenthood yet so I had to skip that one!

    Nicely done on raising $1,000!

  29. Kate says:

    I used to do Fro-yo friday, but it’s been years! I should reinstitute it.

  30. Fro-Yo Friday! Yes!
    Congrats on reaching er… surpassing your fundraising goal!! 🙂
    And I have got to try rhubarb already! Because that pie! Mmm!

  31. DUDE. $1,000? Nice!! I’m shipping off my candied pecans this weekend…in an OXO container. It costs more than the nuts!

  32. Hotly Spiced says:

    I have a friend who jogs and she only keeps going because of the guilt-free eating. Nothing is off-limits after she’s been out training! We don’t have the new season of Breaking Bad here yet and definitely, very definitely, I would prefer it over sports! xx

  33. Christina says:

    Margaritas do cure all. Guilt free eating post running…? Step one, I bought new running shoes, so maybe its time to start the running…

  34. Congratulations on your fundraising efforts!

    Now I want rhubarb too…but it isn’t spring here, so I may be stuck with just the PB&J.

  35. I have a rhubarb plant in my garden and it is starting to grow… I am so excited. Now I want rhubarb too.

  36. Congrats on the fundraiser!!! My family participated in our local Relay for Life last night. My 6 y/o son’s best little girlfriend is a survivor and they hung out together. It was very sweet!

  37. Reeni says:

    I can’t get past the Lorelei thing either! It didn’t seem like a character but like she was being herself. Congrats on the bake sale!
