Saturday I was supposed to go to my good friend Perla’s baby shower (she’s having her 2nd, a little girl!!! can’t wait!) but I wasn’t able to make it, so instead she and I got together tonight. She cooked us some petite sirloins, mashed potatoes and rolls. I contributed a spinach salad with strawberries, blueberries, cranberries and almonds. All of it was super delicious. Just trust me since you can’t see it.
Afterward we were talking and catching up and she was telling me about how her friend had done the needle and thread test on her. Have you heard of it? It’s a test that tells you how many kids you’re going to have and the genders in order. She said that they had been right so far (she has a little boy) and predicted a few more children. Her friend that did it to her had it done multiple times and it always came out the same and accurate for the three kids she currently has. It’s kinda creepy! So of course I made her do it to me.
What you do is thread a needle and hold it above your wrist. It’s better if someone else does it so that you don’t move it. Then all of a sudden the needle will move. If it moves in circles it’s a girl and if it moves in a line it’s a boy. The needle will move for the first baby, stop, then start moving for the next one. I kid you not, it really happened. So according to the needle I will have girl, girl, girl (heaven help me) and then a boy. I tried it again on myself when I got home and I got girl, girl, girl, boy, girl. Guess only time will tell if it’s accurate. 😉
So my new shoes that were so awesome…well, I now have shin splints. I forgot how much these things can hurt. I think going from running on shoes that weren’t giving me any arch support to running on ones that were giving me a lot more support messed with me. Especially since I did a long run for my first run with them. I’m not one to ease into things and now that’s hurting me. But you guys! I can’t be injured!! My next half is in like 25 days and I WILL be PRing. Sooo…whatever it takes to get better and get me there at the same time. Don’t worry, I won’t push too hard. But this is how I will feel.
By the way, I finally saw Pitch Perfect….it wasn’t all that great. Maybe my expectations were too high or maybe I’d already heard all the funny lines quoted, but it just wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. However, I will say that I LOVED the music. So, so good! But the rest of it…acca-meh.
Have you ever done the thread and needle game? What were your results?!!
I need to fix my shin splints fast. Help!
Did you like Pitch Perfect?
