It feels like it has been FOREVER since I have written a blog post.....and it has.  Sorry to all of you 28 subscribers.  I've let you down.  What has my life been like lately?  Work.  That's right.  Just work.  Way way way too much work!  But no more of that.  I'm back to working my 2 days a week that I had been hired for and life is starting to feel slightly more normal (in that I have way more time to come up with excuses of why I can't work out and have to watch Netflix instead).

We got a new puppy!  His name is Duke and he is super sweet and wonderful!  We've had him for just over a month and he's grown a little in that time.  If you don't know dog breeds, Duke is a Great Dane.  He spends the majority of his day sleeping on our couch and stealing my shoes.  I appreciate his lazy lifestyle.  It's been fitting in well with mine.  We try to go for frequent walks.  I have to bribe him with treats to get him to the "outside" where is it is very scary and cold.  I'm quite sure he consumes more calories than he burns off.  I'm going to bombard you with pictures of his cuteness now!

The first day we met Duke.

Learning how to "lay down".

Mastered "sit"!

Our other exciting news is that we bought a cabin in the summer!  And we love, love, LOVE it!  We spent every night possible out there this summer.  It's a perfect home away from home!  It's in a very quiet area and is only a 5 minute walk to the beach!  I'm going to bombard you with pictures of our cabin now!

 Welcome to Casa DeVries!

The beach with it's AWESOME sand!


The back yard and the fire pit 
that never had the chance to get cold.

Maiden Voyage!

As you can see, there's been a very good reason why I've been MIA this time.  I can't promise that I'll be back on to post regularly, but you might see me here a little more often now that things have settled down!

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga! 

Rules of Drunken Jenga


Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
