Bunny Good Day

in All Posts

I only have three superstitions.  One, that you shouldn’t wear the race shirt of a race you didn’t do, and you also shouldn’t wear the race shirt during the race (this second point is hotly debated – just my opinion though!).  Two, that I have to kiss the side of an airplane before boarding… you know, to prevent it from crashing.  Obviously.  Yes, I really do this.


And third, that spotting a wild bunny rabbit is a sign of good luck.  I guess we’re in for DOUBLE the good luck today.


Spotted bunnies on the golf course today.  The Husband, his two buddies, and I went out for a round to celebrate his birthday.


Well, I sat in the golf cart and did the golf clap at appropriate moments.  The belly makes swingin’ a club hard.


Snacks included a PB sandwich and a cookie <— These cookies have held up really well.  Some cookies get better over time; this recipe is one of them!


They let the birthday boy win. Smile 


Came home and had a wonderful salad.  I have been craving this particular salad for days.  Nothing is better than the combo of dried cranberries and cheese, if you ask me.





Balsamic (from Trader Joe’s)


Cheddar cheese


On the agenda for the rest of the day:  VOTE, Girls on the Run, work, birthday dinner, and perhaps buying a lottery ticket?  Those bunnies must be a sign for something!

    So glad you’re making time to VOTE today. It’s an important vote for your state and I’m very interested in the outcome!

    • Caitlin May 8, 2012, 2:32 pm

      Ugh. I think I know what the outcome will be and I am not happy. But every vote counts!!!

  • Sarah May 8, 2012, 2:35 pm

    I live near park full of bunnies. I see several every day. I hope this means I am really really lucky.

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) May 8, 2012, 2:49 pm

    I’ve never heard of the wild rabbit thing. I have heard that white butterflies crossing your path is good luck, so there’s another thing to look out for!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats May 8, 2012, 3:03 pm

    If seeing a wild bunny is good luck, then I get a lot when I’m at home! We have TONS of bunnies in our yard!

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat May 8, 2012, 3:04 pm

    I saw 2 bunnies on my run on the weekend – maybe I should have bought a lottery ticket too! Hope yours is a lucky one!

  • Anne @ strawberryjampackedlife May 8, 2012, 3:14 pm

    I told my husband that only dorks wear the race shirt during the race.

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) May 8, 2012, 3:15 pm

    We saw some bunny action the other day in the the yard! I foresee more bunnies in my yard. Looks like some good birthday celebrations are going on today! I hope you two enjoy the rest of your day!

  • Lisa May 8, 2012, 3:26 pm

    We have bunnies in our back yard! Luckily they have not found my vegetable garden yet.

  • Kendra @ My Full-Thyme Life May 8, 2012, 3:45 pm

    HA! I love how you included the type of balsamic dressing on this post. 😉 Those are some rather BIG bunnies! We have bunnies all over the place here and I don’t think I’ve ever seen one that big. Happy Bday to the Hus! Hope you have a fun dinner tonight!

  • Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles May 8, 2012, 3:45 pm

    That salad looks amazing! There are bunnies who run around near my parents house– I love seeing them!

  • Stephanie @ Legally Blinde May 8, 2012, 3:53 pm

    Aw, the bunnies are so cute! I’m glad you were able to snap a picture of them. Hope you’re having lots of good luck today 🙂

  • Annette@FitnessPerks May 8, 2012, 4:03 pm

    Cute bunnies!!

    Good luck to ya! And YES, cranberries and cheese is a GREAT combo. I love that type of salad. + nuts. YUMM.

  • Jack Sh*t May 8, 2012, 4:14 pm

    Wouldn’t it be luckier to kiss the pilot rather than the plane (I mean, that’s what I do…).

    • Jen May 9, 2012, 12:57 am

      Hahahaha…love it! 🙂

  • Kattrina May 8, 2012, 4:22 pm

    Hmm, if bunnies are a sign of good luck I should have the best luck ever. I see bunnies (or rabbits at least) ALL the time. Not sure why, I live in the suburbs. However, I do live on a golf course so maybe that’s it?

    And a preggo belly makes it hard to golf? Really? I coach little girls golf and my husband and I play on a couple’s league and I was really, really hoping that pregnancy wouldn’t affect golfing. I keep telling everyone that there are plenty of men with large beer bellies that have no problem golfing! However, I have found it near impossible to find golf maternity clothes though – pants/shorts are easy but a nice golf polo seems to evade me. Running tank tops/shirts just aren’t appropriate for the course. Frustrating!

    Have a great day!

    P.S. I also think it’s weird to wear the race t-shirt on the day of the race. Especially since many of them are not good quality.

    • Caitlin May 8, 2012, 9:52 pm

      Haha I’m not really sure – I mean, I’m sure it WOULD affect my swing but I didn’t even want to try. I’m sure you could compensate.

  • Maggie @ runningonfroyo May 8, 2012, 4:26 pm

    YAY! So glad you are voting! Just judging by your blog I’m pretty sure you’ll be making the right decision. 😉 I live in Raleigh and voted for the first time today! (I wasn’t 18 at the last presidential election and didn’t bother to get informed for any other elections between then and now)

  • Jen May 8, 2012, 4:27 pm

    Idk if you read the blog peanut butter fingers but shes featuring a bunch of GOTR volunteer stories today and they are great! Im in cleveland so driving 2ish hours doesnt work for me but i think you girls do great work!

    • Caitlin May 8, 2012, 9:53 pm

      Aww thanks Jen!

  • Pat May 8, 2012, 4:31 pm

    Just found your blog today and love it. Around here it’s jackrabbits! Anyway, I’d love to subscribe to your blog, but can’t find a way to do that.

    And your recipes look great!!


  • curlybeth May 8, 2012, 4:43 pm

    What adorable bunnies! I hope the Husband has a great birthday!

  • Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good May 8, 2012, 5:09 pm

    I, too, enjoy cheese and cranberry in a salad. One of my all time fave salads has Swiss cheese and dried cranberries.

    A question, have you ever had to bail on a planned race due to injury, and still got the race packet? This is about to happen to me, and I’ve been wondering what on earth to do with that shirt. Even though I won’t be racing, I will be there cheering and figured I’d pick up my bag. It will have coupons and such that I might want to use, and I did pay for the race. I don’t necessarily feel it’s bad luck to wear that shirt, but I won’t have earned the right to wear it. So sad. In a perfect world, I would be running and earning that shirt!

    If you have any ideas for my unearned shirt, let me know! 🙂

    • Caitlin May 8, 2012, 9:54 pm

      Yup! I give them to my husband 🙂 He doesn’t have problems wearing the shirts. Maybe you could donate it to Goodwill? Or a running program like Back on My Feet?

  • TeenyLittleSuperChef May 8, 2012, 5:11 pm

    Gahhhh, I just saw you on The Doctors discussing the Naked Face Project!!! You go girl! That’s so awesome and I’m so glad you were able to bring this great movement to so many people. Woohoo!!!

  • Corrie Anne May 8, 2012, 5:12 pm

    Whoa!! I’m loving the looks of that salad. Yum!

  • Dari Marie May 8, 2012, 5:43 pm

    The NC vote today is stressing me out because of a certain hot issue, and I’m happy to know you voted!

  • Shannon May 8, 2012, 6:06 pm

    I love that salad too. I especially love it with feta and pine nuts. Also, on my way to work today I saw a mama bear and two cubs cross the street. It must be a triple lucky day!

  • Kate @ life's precious moments May 8, 2012, 6:11 pm

    It looks like the birthday boy is having a great day! I love that you kiss the airplane! When did you start doing that?

    • Caitlin May 8, 2012, 9:55 pm

      Gah – YEARS ago. I’ve probably kissed 1000s of planes!

  • Rachel May 8, 2012, 7:06 pm

    My undergrad university campus was covered in bunnies. COVERED. It was nicknamed Bunny U!

  • Courtney May 8, 2012, 9:18 pm

    Yum – cheese and cranberries is delicious! Your salad looks amazing 😀

  • Jen May 9, 2012, 1:02 am

    Haha…never heard of the bunny superstition, but I love it- I’ll take all the good luck I can get (knock on wood)! 🙂

  • Sara @my less serious life May 9, 2012, 8:06 am

    that bread is super tiny. what kind do you eat?

    • Caitlin May 9, 2012, 9:05 am

      isn’t it annoyingly tiny? gluten free bread always is – its from Udi’s.

  • Amber K May 9, 2012, 1:17 pm

    Your golf comment reminded me of the Newlyweds episode where Nick took Jessica golfing and she complained about how impossible it was with her big boobs. lol
