Hello and happiest of Fridays to you! I am excited for the weekend to roll around…looking fwd to spending time with the fella, running with my group tomorrow morning, and maybe experimenting with some pinterest recipes! I don’t have too much else planned for this weekend, but that is okay with me! I am embracing having an easy weekend and maybe I will find some time to clean up a little bit around the house.
Here is a recap of my favorites this week…
I am LOVING…
-These purple compression socks. Well all compression socks, really but I love this color! I already have them in pink and when I found out about this Pro Compression deal I absolutely couldn’t resist. 40% off when you use the code SOM812 at checkout, plus free shipping. The deal is going on until August 31st so check ‘em out while you can!
My favorite indulgent Starbucks drink right now has to be the soy chai tea latte with a shot of espresso in it, lovingly referred to as the “dirty chai”. Nothing like a little jolt to start your morning.
-Sinful colors nail polish
I found a new toe polish color that actually covers up my ugly runners toes! I love the sparkle bling color. Makes my toes happy.
I seriously cannot resist this stuff when it comes around in the fall. It dawned on me the other day that it was officially August and this is the month they start stocking it on the shelves. And not all candy corn is created equal, people. Brach’s is the way to go because it has real honey in it! I’m obviously an expert so you should heed my advice and go get you some candy corn ASAP. And maybe even use it to decorate your house this fall.
-(The thought of) Cooler fall-like weather
I have to tell you that I simply cannot wait until it cools down here in Texas. My little runner’s legs are ready to bust out of the gate and run just a little bit faster. With the cooler weather comes faster running, and I can’t wait for that! Plus I want to get out my scarves and boots again. So excited for that.
I have a strange new obsession with Bob Marley music…ever since I have started listening to the Sade station on Pandora radio and he comes on every other song, I am feeling the “Irie” Caribbean vibe…makes me feel all happy and mellowed out.
-I’ve had this book for a while but just started picking it back up and reading it again. This quote stuck out like a sore thumb so I had to highlight it.
What is your favorite fall food or sweet treat? Is the weather cooling down at all where you live or is it still guns blazing like in Texas? If you run, when was the first time you felt like you could officially call yourself “a runner”?
