Let us not forget to focus on the all important sparkly shoes! :-)
She was so very excited to find these shoes this weekend. We of course were shopping for sensible tennis shoes, then she saw these and well the rest is history..... :-)
Speaking of shoes and new adventures, I've decided to add running to my workouts. I unfortunately have very weak ankles and knees from dancing when I was younger. My husband likes to run and has pushed through injuries to run a 1/2 marathon. I figure nothing can stop me if I put my mind to it. So I decided to get the proper shoes. Jerry goes to a specialized running store locally. He insisted I have them fit me. A little known secret about me... I have big feet and terrible time getting fitted! LOL Now yes I am 5' 10" but....
So anyway, I meet this man who is a runner and an expert on feet! I have never had such a thorough look over of my feet ever! I stood on a mat that measured my arches, he scrutinized the tread of my current shoe to note the walking pattern, he had me walk and observe my feet (confirming my ankles were very weak) Measured me at a 10....but as I explained the shoes do not agree.... about a million shoes later I ended up with a better fit in men's running shoes, size 10 1/2 Yikes!! (would be 12 in womens if they made them!) Plus my left foot is longer just slightly than my right...hmmm who knew? But I did get a $150.00 pair of shoes for $35.00 since they were last year's model. Happiness there! :-) But stylish sexy, women's shoes....ummm no didn't happen.
So I tried finding something that didn't look too mannish while running down the rd. You know how it is... I'm convinced everyone will see me coming and say "oh my gosh!! She's wearing men's running shoes!!" LOL.
But even funnier is I haven't worn them yet because I don't want to get them all dirty, lol. Can you tell as a mom I don't get a lot of new things? :-) So this week I started a walk/run program on my treadmill. Definitely a sweaty workout! LOL
Since we were blessed enough to receive a tax return we upgraded our cell phones to the Droid Incredible. They had a buy one get one free deal so we really lucked out. However it will take some time trying to get it all figured out! LOL The salesman had to show us how to make and receive calls. This technology amazes me!
Then I treated myself a little more and got this Vera Bradley mini purse/phone holder to keep it safe. :-)
Making some new recipes this week so I'll be posting with pics after trying them out. :-) Still having yucky rain here.... but little warmer temperatures. So that's a positive! Hope you're having a great day!!
