H54F: New Kicks & Duds

H54F: New Kicks & Duds

1. New Kicks
I got two new pairs of running shoes this week. I bought a pair of stability running shoes and tried them out. They were super comfortable when walking, but they hurt my feet when I ran. So I went into DSW and tried on just about every pair they had and ended up falling in love with a pair of Brooks shoes. At first I was kind of put off with the color, but now it’s pretty fond of it. I have my eye on the new pure cadence shoes… they are beautiful! If I really enjoy the brooks I bought I might just get another pair.

2. Digging My Heels Into Running
I’ve really committed myself to jogging. I’ve been going almost every day and I’ve been enjoying it – surprisingly. I’m very excited for when we get to D.C. next month – we’re about 1.3 miles from the National Mall. I think it will be awesome to be able to run in the city. Btw – I’m on Strava & Nike+…. I still haven’t picked out which one I like best. If you’re on either feel free to follow me.

3. Swimsuits for Summer
Last fall I bought a cute retro 2 piece. It has black bottoms and a polka dot top. The top is a bit loose though and it doesn’t stay in place. I picked up two super cute tops on ASOS clearance. I really hope they fit because I’ve always fallen in love with them.swim

4. Quality Time with the Bunny
On Wednesday night I babysat my darling nephew. He was a little cranky, but you know what? That’s allowed. He’ll be a year old on the 27th and he’s such a cutie. I hate to leave him this summer. I think I’ll miss him most of all.

5. Make a Painting, Take a Painting
I know this is kind of cheating, but my 5th pick hasn’t happened yet. On Saturday I’m going to a painting event with my friend Jacquelline. It’s called “making a painting, take a painting”. It’s the first time they’re holding the event, but it sounds like fun. They give you some instruction and you paint. And eat, of course. I rarely do anything that doesn’t involve food. Anyways, once you’re finished you can take a different painting or your own, home. It will be nice to have some girls time.

Today I am linking up with:

  • Sneakers are on my to do list this weekend.. it’s so hard to find a good pair! The painting event sounds like so much fun – enjoy!!

    • I’m in love with my new shoes… but I’ve had a little bit of tenderness on the top of my foot after running. I’m hoping I can just readjust the laces so they aren’t so tight. I don’t want to have to stop wearing them!

  • I love these fun painting events! They seem like such a good time. And running in DC amongst the monuments seems like the coolest thing ever! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
