Five Quote Friday: Fangirl

You didn’t think I would miss this opportunity, did you?? It’s finally here — and here are some Hunger Games quotes to kick off the weekend. Yes, I am a fangirl. Yes, I am 33 years old. Don’t judge me. Or if you do — please do it silently.









And while this one isn’t from HG (it’s from Mockingjay), I have to include it as it’s my favorite….



Happy Hunger Games weekend to all — May the odd be ever in YOUR favor :)

Five Quote Friday – Running

It’s the day before the day… I’m ALMOST THERE! So you KNOW today’s post is going to be some running inspiration…

Five of my favorites. It was really hard to pare these down!






I love being inspired by these (sometimes completely sappy) quotes. Happy Friday!!!

Five Quote Friday

Happy Friday!!!

This has been a really long week and it didn’t help that I thought yesterday was Friday. I swear that just makes the week longer! Maybe my week a little better though?? TV. Of course! And here are some of my favorite quotes from television.

{There are so many good quotes to choose from….here are ones that come to mind this week.}

1. Pivot!!!


{followed by the equally awesome “Shut up! Shut up! Shut upppppp!”}

2. Bang bang bangity bang. I said a bang, bang bangity bang. (from How I Met Your Mother)

3. Blerg! (of course)


4. “It tastes like feet!” (Ross isn’t my favorite Friends character – but some of my favorite quotes are from him!), which ties with “What’s not to like? Custard? Good. Jam? Good. Meat? Goooooood.”


5.  “Growing up happens in a heartbeat. One day you’re in diapers, the next day you’re gone. But the memories of childhood stay with you for the long haul. I remember a place, a town, a house like a lot of other houses, a yard like a lot of other yards, on a street like a lot of other streets. And the thing is, after all these years, I still look back, with wonder.”

(who doesn’t love the Wonder Years?)

Five Quote Friday

I’m getting a little burned out on the 5 for Friday thing, so I decided to switch it up a little. Actually, I had a post all ready to go about running (which, for the record bored me to tears) and then I read this article on the Top Ten Lessons Steve Jobs Taught Us and I was inspired. (This is a great article, by the way – love him or hate him, he’s changed the world)


I especially loved the quotes — and since he really HAS offered up a lot of good advice and insight, here are my top 5. It was hard to choose – he’s very quotable!


Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful – that’s what matters to me.” – Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993


Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.


I’m sorry, it’s true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We’re born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It’s been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much — if at all.


The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it to a nationwide communications network. We’re just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people––as remarkable as the telephone. – Playboy Magazine, February 1985

(AMAZING that he said this in 1985. True visionary, indeed)


No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. – Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005

What inspires you?

Hope everyone has a great Friday and a great weekend! Good luck to everyone running the Chicago Marathong this weekend!! (Angie/Randee/Alecia/Cely/Britt — I mean you!)
