Yesterday afternoon I went up to Park City with my mom. She wanted to go there (about 45 minutes away from where we live) to go to the outlets to get some new shoes. Since she knows that my social/work/life calendar is completely empty she invited me to go with her. The whole drive is beautiful.
But the stores are even more beautiful… especially J Crew (someday when I make millions from a running invention that I am currently working on I will buy all of my clothes from J. Crew). You can even see the ski jumps from the 2000 Winter Olympics in the background. This trip reminded me a lot of when my Mom and I went to Park City the day before I moved away to college (a whole 15 minutes away) when I was 18. The poor employees at Arby’s were wondering why we were both bawling at the table, luckily yesterday we decided not to talk about moving so that we wouldn’t end with mascara all over our faces.
Billy’s colored pants inspired me to get some of my own. Funny how I bought new pants for post-pregnancy when in reality I will probably never make it out of sweatpants or running shorts for the first 3 years of my daughter’s life because I will be so tired.
I don’t think they are bright enough. Do you?
After I got home I took a nap, hung with the Billster and then it was off to my parents’ house to store some of the stuff we want to keep but won’t fit in our new place. For example we are leaving behind some of the hats that Billy had to wear when it would get down to -40 degrees when he lived in Ukraine for two years. I don’t think we will need them in N. Cali.
I think they all look really good in these hats especially on a day that it is 98 degrees outside.
Take-out + Olympic track and field + my perfect personal table tray = I can’t even think of a word (neither can the thesaurus) to describe how happy it made me.
3 random things I thought I should tell you:
1. There is a a spider that attacks me every night. I am itchy everywhere.
2. I love watching the Olympic track sprinters cheeks (on their face) as they bounce when they run.
3. Swedish Fish taste even better at 12:30 at night. Don’t believe me? Try it.
If you had all of the money in the world, what store would you buy all of your clothing at?
If you could compete in ANY track and field event at the Olympics, what would you choose?
Where is the coldest place you have ever been?
How old were you when you moved out? Did you move far?
