Eight miles @ 8:35 pace, I brought out an old friend with me… the Novablasts. These shoes made me confident to try out speed again early this year. After my plantar fasciitis injury, I was terrified to try speed and risk getting injured again, but Asics sent me these shoes, and they made me want to run fast again. They were the perfect transition between injury –> Vaporflys, and now that I brought them out again, I’ll be wearing them more often because they feel so good.
I have lived here for a very long time and I feel like winter has come way earlier than normal this year.
I went straight to the hot tub afterward to defrost my fingers.
We decided to organize a Halloween party this weekend for everyone in Brooke and Knox’s school class. Wish us luck. We spent the whole day doing errands to prepare for it, and Skye found her dream car while we were out.
Drove-thru Cafe Rio on the way home because we were famished from all the errands. Remember when Brooke and I used to eat Cafe Rio a few times a week when it was just the two of us?! I think about that every time I see a Cafe Rio now.
We made a big egg scramble for dinner and somehow I melted the dish towel to the stove during the craziness of making dinner while the kids were hangry.
I have a few favorite things to share today:
*These headbands/ear warmers! I’m finding they are perfect for 30-50 degree weather. They are mens which is ideal for me because they are just a tiny bit bigger than my other ear warmers, so they fit my bigger head great… If you have a big head too, try these out. I love the colors they come in, and they are a great price. For colder days, I bought this one.
Beck was ready for me to leave lululemon and take him home.
*Apple Cinnamon Bread. The temperatures drop, and I suddenly want to bake. This. Was. So. Good.
So was this pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting.
*I’ve been wearing this shirt jacket non-stop this week, and I’ve had some questions about it, so I thought I would share it here too. I love it. It is so cozy, it’s long and goes over my bum and goes with pretty much everything. There is always some sale at Madewell, so use whatever code they have to get it cheaper! Also, I have reached ultimate comfort/coziness with the uggs too.
Are you looking forward to anything fun this weekend?
Who has tried the Novablast 3s? Any Asics lovers?
Who has eaten at Cafe Rio? What would you rate it out of 10?
Last baked good that you have made?
