So- Monday morning! I have the day off and all the kids are in school. What better time to write a post on a running blog that has absolutely nothing to do with running! Actually, I could not sleep last night so thought maybe I would start on the online Christmas shopping (yes-I live at the end of the earth and this is my only option)! Unfortunately, I pretty much just filled shopping carts in about 30 stores entirely for myself (sorry kids). Resisted actually purchasing any of the crap but I'm considering it 2 hours of cyber therapy and deeming it necessary. So, in true random fashion I'm listing my current obsessions!
1.) The infamous ½ zip pullover. In my wardrobe this doubles as a running jacket as well as evening attire. I currently have 39 of them and yes they go with heels, running shoes or potentially with last years obsession, cowboy boots.
2.) Lululemon-I had heard of this store but a friend really tipped me off to it last year and I LOVE it. Honestly, the world is a better place that I can wear these Lulu pants EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Again, they can be paired with heels or running shoes. The cowboy boots might be a stretch but since I’m already such a fashion trendsetter, what the hell!
So just for visualizations sake a potential "going out" outfit for me could look like this!
THROW IN THESE
And there you have it. IMPECCABLE style from Northern Minnesota! Oops! I said Northern MN. Might need this as well!
3.) Hudson Jeans. Whatever it takes…..and sometimes whatever it takes is still not enough…..
And yes-I have just a couple current food obsessions as well!
4.) Pumpkin. It is fall-pumpkins everywhere-Yay!! OK- in all actuality real pumpkin, not so good . Tiny pumpkins made of entirely HFCS and packaged by Brach’s ….VERY good. Pumpkins are pumpkins right. Hmmmm…. my rear end is currently telling me otherwise!
4.) Honeycrisp apples. I like to pay $2.75 a pound for apples so these are on my list as well!!!
6.) Caribou coffee. If I make a hundred of these lists on my lifetime, this will be on EVERY one. I am a coffee fanatic. If I had to chose between running and coffee, coffee would win. ( Sorry honey, coffee would win over most anything….. ) As I’ve learned through my recent injury however, coffee WITHOUT the running at times requires Kahlua and or Bailey’s added TO the coffee to maintain one’s sanity.
So-I'll stop for now! As you can see I should not be left home alone!
Anyway, I'm off to ditch the cowboy boots for the running shoes and hit the trail! Happy Monday all!
