Random Life

I haven’t posted a lot in my day to day life because I haven’t done a lot.  Look at me being exciting!  But it’s Friday and the weekend is almost finally here.  It could be the fact someone has had rooster hours and working at 6 am but I’ve been up earlier and this week has gone by extremely slow.  I just hope the weekend goes just as slowly.

Let’s see what I’ve been up to the last week.  Besides a nice week of no traveling and down time, I’ve been cleaning off and on.  I’ve had a doctor’s appointment and I got to hang out with a fellow Oiselle NJ teammate, Brennan.  Way back in the day (read:  At the Nike half last year) Brennan and I met at the starting line.  Now we get to hang out frequently considering we live 45 minutes apart.

We decided to head to Cherry Hill Mall, eat at the Lux Café and window shop.  Lord knows I don’t need anymore clothes or need to be spending anymore money for a while…but I can never resist a good sale.  (Luckily I found nothing I needed).

I think I’ve mentioned that my favorite store outside of working out is BCBG.  I love their style and I love it even more when it’s at an outlet store.  Regardless, we went inside and looked around.  There is a lot of new and fresh style ideas that I’m digging lately. Such as the rose gold trend.  Brennan and I decided to try $500 outfits on at BCBG because we are adults and store managers no longer follow us around wondering what we are doing in the store.  Plus I had my Russian hat on, which screams I make a lot of money.  (or at least it pretends too).

This post was really scattered like my brain as been lately so I apologize.  Since that was the highlight of my week I have nothing else to add.  I’m honestly just happy for the weekend and a possible 5k on Sunday.

Questions for you:

How was your week?  Do you have any weekend plans?  

What is your favorite nonathletic brand?


Real Life Musings

I normally have Monday’s off of both works.  Though I would much prefer a weekend day, I cannot ever complain about having a day off at all.  Normally on Monday’s I try and make it my long run or double workout day since I can’t generally fit it in other places and then of course relaxing and not worrying about work.  When mom asked if I wanted to go to the outlet malls in Williamsburg and was off work as well I wanted a day to forget workouts, forget working and be a real girl.

The previous two weeks I haven’t been having runs that I would really consider enjoyable.  While I finish the runs injury free and not in pain, they haven’t really felt great.  At 5:15 in the morning I was just grumpy and running was not happening then.  When I didn’t sleep well and had no interest in running…I didn’t.  I also didn’t sleep in either because honestly I was just wide awake.  So with that I crawled out of bed and just relaxed at home while mom woke up.

We generally like to turn our shopping adventures to the outlet into an all day event.  On the hour journey north, we couldn’t decide on a restaurant so using trusty foursquare we found a Greek restaurant “The Grecian Plate”.  It was good but it wasn’t enough food for me.  It also wasn’t terribly expensive so I wasn’t too upset.


Before I divulge too much into my shopping adventure, it’s no secret I’m on a budget but I decided to treat myself to a day of shopping and not worry about it.  I work to enjoy and spend money that I earn occasionally and not feel guilty about it.  To give you a remote idea, it was more then I’ve spent in the last week then I have in the last month.  Oh well.

Some key purchases:

Immediately when I saw this romper at BCBG, I fell in love.  I knew it was going to bust my wallet but I also knew it would be a perfect date night outfit in Texas.


I also bought some new MAC makeup at the cosmetic company store.  I know some people don’t wear makeup…but I do and I like MAC.  It lasts a long time and for me that is also a splurge I take.

The other splurge I take is my biannual new wallet purchase from Fossil.  In January I treated myself to a fancy red wallet.  This time I decided to go with a nice tan leather wallet.


Questions for you:
