• Hey, You Guys! {And Some Treadmill Mistakes}

    Did anyone catch The Goonies on TV the other night? Mal was watching Monday Night Football, so I recorded it to watch later. I finally watched The Goonies last night, and I must say it’s still one of my favorite movies ever.

    Growing up, my sister and I spent a lot of time with my cousins Meeghan and Heidi, so any time the four of us got together, we’d watch The Goonies—like ALL the time. We probably watched it a little too much because we’d constantly recite lines from it. I’m sure our parents and friends thought it was so annoying. Haha!

    The Goonies is easily the movie I have watched the most in my lifetime, and I still find it entertaining! Best movie ever.

    My siblings and I could have an entire conversation using just quotes from Goonies, Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, and Breakfast Club :o)

But is is the best thing ever!!! So glad oyu posted about it, It’s my favorite thing in the kitchen besides my Vitamix :).

    One of my clients told me that she fell off the treadmill while running and ate it bad….TWICE! Scraped her knees and elbows. She said she just lost control at 7 mph. She doesn’t know if she will be going on any treadmills anytime soon.
