Something to Talk About...

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Soooo much going on these days I don't know how I can keep up with it all... but somehow, between Outlook calendars and my handy-dandy Moleskin planner, I seem to--I assure you, this post may be be a bit bumpy and I'm going to ramble, but it's a great day and I am as happy as any girl could be so we'll just dabble in the goods for a bit...
I'm bad, very bad--Victoria's Secret knows just how to get me. Being a customer on their email list is an inconvenience when you're trying to save money, BUT, some of their bathing suits were 25% off so I decided I needed to reward myself and splurge a bit since I will be at the beach in a month--WAHOO!!
Here's my little polka dot bikini:

And I just HAD to add another pair of wedges to my already huge collection--oops!!
{hey, they were on sale for $29--I got the natural suede color}
And in other fun news, my friend Candice surprised Jeff and I with a FABULOUS housewarming gift: these great coasters!! Look familiar?? She ordered them from the same place I got his personalized map cufflinks... they are already coming in handy and each one represents a place we have visited together--thank you Candice--we love them!!
Last night, my friend Brittney and I had dinner at our favorite mexican locale, Las Maracas... the weather was gorgeous and I decided I couldn't eat leftovers at home so we splurged and had a girly dinner, just the two of us--living with a boy has definitely made me realize I HAVE to have my girl time =)
And I saved the best for last!! Today marks the 1 month countdown until D-Day--April 24th will be here before I know it... and even better, today was the day I OFFICIALLY REGISTERED for the Country Music 1/2 Marathon--as if my training didn't mean enough, spending almost $100 to run in a race sealed the deal on my participation this year! It feels so good to know it's getting closer and my body is getting ready to take a beating...
the course map--yikes!!
Well, that't all from me for now--back to the daily grind... I'll be back later!! Have a wonderful Wednesday friends... OXOX


  1. Those coasters are too cute! My first half is in June - any particular type of training you would suggest? I've heard of all different types = what worked for you??

  2. Hey sweets! I need to know where you got those coasters - they are adorable! :)

    And great job on your training - I love keeping up with you and how we all inspire each other!

  3. Those coasters are adorable....and congrats on registering for your race!!!

    Ps - I followed along w/ your post yesterday and blogged about the things I *think* I can't live without. I linked back to your blog, so you might have some new visitors today. :)

  4. I love those coasters! Very unique :)

  5. Love the swimsuit! I have one from VS the black solid one it's so cute on! You'll love it! I bought those wedges too but I ended up thinking they were too low and now I'm on a hunt for wedges! I totally look up to you on the 1/2 marathon, maybe one day I will dedicate myself to one. For now I'll live it through you! (And girl time is a must) after you move in with the boy..

  6. You just convinced me to buy a bathing suit...Victoria's Secret is where I always get them!! You are a bad influence on a girl trying to save money :)

  7. Are you and Britt naked in that pic? Haha, jk :)

    I am obsessed with those coasters. Are they from Etsy?

    By the way, I am thinking of picking up my blog again, but I think I may want to do something different with it... not sure. I'll keep you in the loop.

  8. i am a big wedge fan and i have those shoes in gold. love them!!

  13. Congrats on the one month countdown! The race looks like a blast...I want to do the marathon there someday!

  14. Love the suit and VS :) I am also training for the Country Music Half marathon! I remember when I registered, it was a feeling like "No turning back now! Gotta finish this after paying that much money!" This is my first half-marathon! Love your blog, by the way! So cute!
