Anyways, how has everyone been? If feels like I've been missing forever!! Other than the NaStY guest in our house, things have been going pretty well! I had a great weekend which involved getting a majority of my Christmas shopping finished (oh yea!!) and having a ball at the most amazing outlets with Nicole!
We left EARLY Sunday morning and headed to the Birch Run Outlets (which is about 2 hours away). The first store we happened to stumble in was Pottery Barn Outlet. Sigh. I love Pottery Barn, but they are usually so expensive I can never bring myself to buy anything from there! As we were wandering through the store, I stumbled across this amazing find!
Mind you, my couches are hand-me downs from my mom, which came from my aunt, which came from my grandma...you get the idea. So when I saw the price tag on this cutie, I could not resist. Any guesses? $190.00 regularly $1,400.00. Seriously. I checked on shipping, it cost more to ship than to buy! So I called my AMAZING friend Lizzie, who went, picked up a truck and drove the 2 hour drive to pick up this couch for me! Yep, I'm spoiled, but I am so grateful and blessed! And it looks great in my living room and gives me more space! Nicole and I then proceeded to make our way around the mall, finding a few awesome deals like my $10 pink tempo shorts from Nike and some awesome outdoor/winter running gear from North Face! I love when you go to checkout and it rings up $12 cheaper than it's priced for! Sweetness!!
On the running front, Nicole and I had plans to run at lunch on Monday, but since I haven't been off the couch/out of bed for the past 2 days, we had to put it on hold. Since it's in the 60's in November (what, what?) I'm hoping to go for a run tomorrow! I think we are planning on running a 10K Saturday and I'm excited to get out there and back into a routine. I really need to have a race I'm training for because without a training plan, I feel a little lost on the running end. How far? How long? What do you guys do between training cycles?
I'm also debating about putting my name in for the New York lottery. I made some potential plans to run Chicago next year, plus I already signed up for Kalamazoo, so New York, too? That's 3 marathons in one year...hmmmm. Maybe I'm nuts?
The things I am thankful for this week include:
~Today I'm thankful for the douche bag at Walmart who scratched the eff out of my car with their door or cart. I hope someone shows you the same courtsey.
~Now for real...♥ tonight and snuggle time with the 3 monkeys watching polar express...
~Today I'm thankful for the Andriod game Wordfeud...(which I'm guessing is like words with friends) so if you're on the andriod market and want to play, my name is runnererika
~Thankful for my amazing find at pottery Barn...$190 for a couch, yes mam! Thank you! And an amazing day with Colie!!
~I'm thankful that the flu bug is finally on the way OUT of my house...beware, that shit is nasty
Hope everyone is enjoying their week! GYRO and have an amazing day!
