You know you are getting old when the only things that you want for your birthday is new bedding (because somehow my bedtime keeps getting earlier and earlier and softer sheets just sounds amazing) and
2 new work dresses from Old Navy that you buy purely for comfort and because they were only $15 each. PS Old Navy had a really cute workout clothes section, I may have to go back!
Let’s hope these dresses don’t wrinkle easily because they are still hanging out in the bag as we speak.
Dinner was the ultimate meal for a head cold sick patient:
I really tried my hardest to convince Billy that he didn’t really NEED to go on his five mile recovery run after dinner last night and instead just watch Glee with me but he said, “Of course I don’t need to run but I really WANT to.” What have I created? I was looking back in my archives the other day and came across the post where Billy surprised me by secretly running for a month to get in shape so that we could start running together, you can read it HERE.
The best part was that he ate a hot dog within 30 minutes of going out for his run. Stomach of steel, what would that be like? I can’t even handle PB right before a run…..I am all about a banana and a plain white bagel.
Another reason that Billy was really excited for his run was because he just got a pair of Saucony Guide 5s in the mail today. I know you aren’t supposed to judge running shoes on looks and colors but I think these ones are really cool looking and they make me want to get a pair. How cool would that be to see a couple running down the street in black running tights and matching shoes.
It really doesn’t get better than the first few runs in a new pair of shoes.
Please tell me that you have had a carmel apple sucker before. I am sure glad I chose an apple flavored sucker over a real apple yesterday for a snack. Don’t worry mom, I ate the apple a few minutes later but it was definitely lacking in a sticky carmel coating.
This morning’s workout is brought to you by my latest randomness of just doing whatever I feel like when my alarm clock goes off.
If it was your birthday TODAY (maybe it is for someone reading, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY), what would you ask for?!?!
Do you ever shop at Target? What are your favorite things to buy there? Do you ever grocery shop there?
-I love their jewelry, shoes and workout clothes the most.
What color is your bedspread? Is it solid or does it have a pattern?
How often do you buy new running shoes?
