I’ve had many requests to post pics of my dress options for this Friday night. I will definitely do this tomorrow once I have a bit more light to take pictures. I showed one of my staff members one of the dresses and she didn’t think it was very “Friday night birthday party” rather it was more like Sunday brunch. I explained that once on, it definitely was NOT a Sunday brunch dress… unless I was still wearing it from the night before! ;)
I ran tonight – the weather was awesome. It was almost 40* outside (at least around 3:30 pm) and still a bit of sunshine left even though I took off at 5:30 pm. I wore my favorite Adidas tights, a short sleeve shirt and a fleece-y long sleeve running jacket. I also wore a hat and gloves. When I walked outside I thought I had under-dressed but once I started moving I was okay. I managed a little over 4 miles. I did have to walk .25 of a mile up this damn hill. I usually measure my fitness by this hill because it is long and a bit steep. Tonight I ran more of it than I did on Saturday so baby steps are good. My time was 45.11 mins including the walk break. This makes 3 days in a row of working out for me! YaY! While my motivation right now is a fancy-pants dress, I’m counting on this helping me with my all-around motivation. I felt better today than I have in a couple of weeks and I owe it to the endorphins. Much love to you little endorphins! I also wore these cute socks
These socks are kind of high, which wasn’t my favorite at first. Today I tucked my tights into the socks a bit – what can I say? I’m a kid of the 80’s – we always tucked our pants into our socks back then ;) I did want to give a shout out to the Grand Rapids Marathon. I ran the half this year and it was really well-organized. The race was featured in Runner’s World because they serve pickle juice along the route (at later mileage points) – I know, sounds wacky but ppl swear by it! There was incredible crowd support and I still get e-mail newsletters from the race organizer, Don Kern, who also just broke a world record for marathon running. The newsletters contain motivational info along with other running tidbits. This is a great race!
These lil’ brats are sitting right next to me on the couch. I’m not sure why. They are taunting me. I caved once!
Is it possible for animals to have sleep apnea? I’m pretty sure if it is, Simon has it. He just snort-slept and woke himself up. I’m thinking the lil’ guy needs a trip to the vet where I’ll probably be convinced he needs a sleep machine that I’ll have to sacrifice my own life for in order to put it on Simon in the first place.
Today, I got a package from my dad for my birthday. Inside was a GIANT candy cane that was supposed to be for my stocking, some fuzzy socks that were my mom’s, a card and a lil’ can of food for Simon
The note says, “Simon, give Amy a hug and kiss for me. Grandpa” I read the card first and started tearing up when I read the message. Then I saw this note for Simon and I started crying. Yeah, I’ve totally turned into a crier – boo! But they were just the sweetest messages and I think this birthday will be emotional anyway.
Alright, so tomorrow pictures of the dresses I DO have. Last night I caved a little and wondered if I needed ONE MORE OPTION! Of course I don’t but I headed over to GreatGlams.com and checked out their inventory. Their clothes are inexpensive and definitely club-esque. I found a cute one that might go in the “possibility” category!
