Snakes, Steeplechase, Sunday…Starbucks

20 May

Ha! I love alliteration!

This morning I braved the gloomy weather (it was seriously hard to do) and did a 4 mile loop at First Landing State Park.

Which brings me to my first S, Steeplechase. The normally dry trail at First Landing had two huge puddles or rivers today. It reminded me when my brother Andrew did Steeplechase in high school.


On the return loop I was about to step over a green reed that turned out to be a snake! Ah! This is my biggest fear in VA Beach since I know there are snakes a plenty. I’m pretty sure the guy I almost stepped on was non poisonous, but I know they are out there!

Because it was so gloomy, I wanted/needed/craved some coffee. Starbucks had a “new” mocha coconut frappe. I got no frappe and substituted soy milk. It pretty much tasted like liquid Samoa! Sooooo good!


Aaaand I just thought of another S. SNL. Last night was the season finale and it was pretty awesome. It started with my good friend Jon Hamm…

Silly NBC doesn’t like it when people take their videos. You can watch it here.

It was all around good times. Mick Jagger was the host and sang four songs! He did a pretty decent job and of course the musical numbers with the Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire were awesome!

Have a great Sunday! I’m off to watch The Descendants and cry. It’s depressing right??
