Random Wednesday - Five Things

I have a bunch of things that I haven't had a chance to share with you on my blog.  None of them go together so this is a random one.  I kind of love random posts though don't you!?  

This weekend my niece, Peyton (5), had her first dance competition.  She had two dances - a jazz performance and a tap performance.  They did a great job.  Peyton is one of the youngest on her team and she did such a great job - I loved seeing her smile up on the stage.  They won awards for both dances!!!

On another note - this "dance world" is so foreign to me.  I was not a dancer growing up.  This stuff is crazy.  I saw some young girls wearing some stripper-like costumes and doing some rated R moves.  OMG!  I sent my sister-in-law a text during one of the scandalous performances to tell her I better NEVER see Peyton or Ella in a two piece dance costume. Ha!

Last week I went to an American Red Cross blood drive.  It was one that had been scheduled prior to the Boston Marathon tragedy but came at the perfect time.  It was at Boston College which is just a couple minutes from my house.  I made an appointment and was excited to be doing something to help following the tragedy.

BUT my blood didn't cooperate.  My iron was too low.  It needed to be 12.5 in order for me to donate and mine was only 11.0.  They checked it twice but no luck.  SO frustrating.

I really should have know.  I've been so incredibly tired lately.  I'm sure this is one of the reasons.  Since I don't eat meat or fish (except chicken sometimes) I try to eat a lot of spinach and other iron rich foods.  But I guess I wasn't eating enough.  So I went out and picked up a multi-vitamin.  I use to take one daily but got lazy.  Now I'm back at it.  I'll try to given blood again in a month or two.

A new pinkberry opened near my house.  This is good news and bad news.  Good because I LOVE pinkberry but bad b/c I LOVE pinkberry.  Haha!  I'm going to need to have some major self control in order to not go all.the.time.  It had actually been several weeks since I had any so this was a yummy treat.

Oh and I really think they should hire me to be the official taste tester! 

The other day, while at a red light I noticed this truck in front of me.  Doody Calls - creative yes, gross yes.  Franchises Available.  NO THANK YOU!  This is not a job I would ever want.

This is how my floor bed entire room has looked pretty much since I got back from BlissDom.  Yeah I realize that was in March.  Cut me some slack I'm a busy tired girl.  Oh and did I mention that those are all clean clothes.

If only magic little elves would come while I'm at work and put all my clothes away.  I can dream right!?  I promised Rachel my entire apartment would be clean by the time she gets here.

So I have 30 days.  That should be enough time, right!?

That's all for today!  Happy hump day!

Linking up with Shanna for Random Wednesday.
