Selfies with Keith Urban & Friends
IMG_9849

I don’t want this past weekend to end. No, no no, not at all. Country weekends are my favorite. More specifically, Keith Urban weekends are my favorite. 2 concerts in 3 days, and I feel like I have a worse hangover than I ever did in college, and I didn’t even drink! Concert going takes a LOT out of you, especially when you’re a dancing machine at the shows!

Thursday was the first of 3 Keith concerts this summer. This show I went with my parents. We had seats about 10ish rows back from the pit.

And then Alan saved the day and surprised me with an extra pit ticket, so I joined him in there for the show. This is the man that gets all of my tickets for me. He started his own ticket company awhile ago called Ticket Snobs, and he is the best, so if you ever need tickets, he is your man! Probably one of the best connections I’ve made from CrossFit haha.

And drooled over my favorite guitarist. Those muscles! :)

And then naturally I took a selfie with Keith. Alan and I are no strangers for Keith shows, so we knew at some point he would go to his “b stage” in the back. Alan saw the security guards moving on stage, and he said that he thought Keith was about to leave soon… so we headed to the corner, where no one was around, and I planted myself for a picture.selfie_with_keith_urban

I turned my camera onto the “selfie” option, stuck my arm out and smiled, hoping that I would get part of us in the picture. I kept snapping pictures, and the second picture you can see the moment that I realized Keith was jumping into the picture to take a selfie WITH me.

The last picture I’m still freaking out and Keith is looking at me like I’m crazy. I didn’t even realize I got these pictures until looking at my phone. I was dying!

Friday

Fright morning I slept in, got a 10k training run in, and then headed to work for a few hours. I headed to CrossFit after work since it was a lifting day an
d I wanted to test my maxes on back squats. I was the only one for the 5:30 class, so I got some really great 1-on-1 coaching with Mat. I ended up getting a PR on my back squat and reached 200 lbs! A 15 lb PR since the beginning of the year.

Saturday

Saturday was spent not doing much. I got in a run, doodled around, prepped some food for the night, and then headed to the Keith Urban concert in Mass. with my parents, best friend Lindsay, and her boyfriend Justin.

We tailgated and ate some delicious bbq, while watching the kids next to us get busted for underage drinking, drugs, and prescription pills.

Brett Eldredge opened and continues to steal my heart.

And a few of my favorite shots from the 90+ awesome ones I have on my computer. Since I only put them on Facebook, I decided to create an account on Flickr so that I could store all of my concert pictures and that way other fans can enjoy them too!KeithUrban_BrianNutter_Mass KeithUrban_Mass KeithUrban_Mass

Sunday

After getting home just shy of 2 am, I slept until about 10 am, and started editing my pictures for a few hours while watching a movie. Aside from leaving the house at 1 to get a run in, I literally ate everything in site, sat on my butt, and did nothing. It was glorious.

Beautiful Is When I…
IMG_7420

If you’re on Facebook, I’m sure most of you have either seen, or have been tagged in posts asking females to post 5 pictures that they feel most beautiful in. My friend Sara tagged me last week, and I never got around to posting those images on Facebook. Maybe because I was too distracted by a large bowl of fruit and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, but that’s beside the point. Instead, as I was laying [...] Continue Reading…

Reebok ZJet Fuse
IMG_9253

Last month I received an invite from Finish Line to review Reebok’s new running shoe, called the ZJet Fuse. I was really excited to try these out, mostly because I have always been curious about athletic shoes that have air pockets in them. They reminded me of those pretty snazzy basketball shoes that all the cute boys would buy and play ball in.

When the shoes arrived, I loved how bright and happy they were. [...] Continue Reading…

WIAW: Bagels, ProCakes & Hot Dogs
IMG_9703

You are about to see an absolute first on any of my What I Ate Wednesday, let alone Running on Peanut Butter. I even blew my mind on Friday when this went down. I ate a bagel. a real, carby carb carb loaded bagel. Okay, I only ate half of it, but it wasn’t one of those slimmed down bagel thin versions.

On Friday afternoon, I was yank-my-eyeballs-out-starving. By the time I got home from [...] Continue Reading…

Judgemental Judgers & Breakfast Burpees
IMG_9675

I learned an important lesson over the weekend. One that has been drilled into our brains since we were young. It’s easy to think “ya, ya, ya, I won’t do that,” but sometimes we do it, and sometimes others do it. Either way, someone gets hurt. I will probably talk more about it later on, but until then… don’t judge people. See past the image of someone. Their real story is inside. Maybe someone is [...] Continue Reading…

CrossFit Comp, Pool Party & Running
IMG_9641

Nothing beats starting your weekend with fresh fruit and your brother and sister-in-law being in town for a wedding. The weekend was full of family, and it was just a really good few days.

Friday night we stayed up super late after BBQing, and spent the time hanging out, talking, and watching What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. We hadn’t seen it yet, so we were excited to see what all the fuss was about. It was [...] Continue Reading…

Happy Friday my pb lovers, and if you don’t like pb, well, you are weird, and you must love me, so good morning Allie lovers! :) Did you miss me yesterday? Guess what? I didn’t miss blogging. It actually felt good to take a weeknight off from writing.

I typically find time on my lunch hour at work to draft part of the next day’s blog, or at least get images uploaded that I want [...] Continue Reading…

WIAW: All Things Peanut Butter
your-creativity-style1

Reminiscing over this week showed me that I was really boring with “meals” that I ate. One of the things I want to improve with my blog is better pictures of meals, but really, I just don’t have the time to… okay, I’m sure I could find the time, but the time only occurs when I don’t want to (<– life). I think I could get away with buying a nice white plate, and [...] Continue Reading…

FitGirl Tanks & PMS Makes Me Wanna…
Blue Tank

I really shouldn’t even be allowed to write today, since I am currently experience a pms that is capable of karate chopping someone’s head off. Really. It’s bad. I’m going to blame it on this Super Moon, or whatever it is, that we have had over the last few days. I’ve heard that people get crazy during full moons, and now I am one of those people.

I don’t think realistically during these times. Such [...] Continue Reading…

Ahhhh Monday again. It’s crazy how quickly this day of the week comes, but it’s alright really, because I had such a wonderful weekend full of everything, that it’s not right to complain.
Friday
I had plans to go to the Michael Buble concert with my friend Alan from the CrossFit box, so before the 8 pm show, we headed to Mint Bistro for dinner, and then dessert. Chocolate mousse cake with coconut ice cream. Both [...] Continue Reading…
