Things Getting Me Through Today

We leave for Queenstown, New Zealand for a week-long ski trip in less than a month! June 16th, hurry please!

I first spotted these shoes years ago and wanted them but they were too expensive, in my opinion. In skimming through and old post on Cupcakes and Cashmere, I was reminded of my crush on them. I took a shot and gave them a gander on Google. Turns out, this one random website had them on turbo sale. In my size! I immediately emailed Megan:

we don't mess around with cute shoes on sale.

hello, lover.

My love Jeri is running her 3rd marathon this weekend and she’s BREAKING FOUR HOURS and I’m so excited for her. Go tell her to get out of her own head and shut up and run. (And good luck!)

There’s a slim chance we might get to head back to Houston for a couple weeks this fall! Aiiieeeeee! (We aren’t supposed to get back until December otherwise.) I’m already plotting all the restaurants I want to hit up and all the old running routes I’m going to go clobber. Reeeeeeeally crossing my fingers this works out.

And hey, we’ve been here two months already. Only, uhm, 22-34 left. *Gulp*

Happy running.

    First of all, those shoes are the kind that I covet but just don’t think I could pull off. So, wear ’em with styyyle!😉

    Secondly, I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I had NO idea New Zealand was southwest of Australia (I was thinking more northeast…). Oof.

        what golf shoes do is create cosnsitincy because their job is to help you stay in place. See the spikes help with traction so during the swing your foot doesn’t slip up instead they keep you firm in the ground. What shoes I would suggest would be Foot Joys my favorite kind of Foot Joys are Dry Joys they are VERY water resistant. Last season I had a cheap pair of golf shoes and my feet would always get wet and I’d get blisters, but this year with the Dry Joys my feet maybe got wet once and I didn’t get any blisters. So it is important to get a great quality pair of golf shoes.

    Even though you’re KIND of miserable there, I just love reading about your adventure. Does that make me an asshole for taking pleasure in other peoples’ misery? I don’t mean it. Swear. I’m just fascinated. Please keep telling us all about it. Congrats on the treadmill! Hopefully that’ll take some of the edge off. Hang in there!

    June…ski…hmmmm. Also, I adore those shoes but spend my day in tennis shoes so you can have them! Sometimes I wear fancy flip-flops with sparkles. Oooohh yeah.

    for for the services and the choice is dependent upon a person’s very own circumstances. This shall take time but it would be worth the effort and the money saved.

    This is a small selection of great music I listen to, written from my own perspective as a fan and a user, with the aim of inspiring
    others to listen too. At a bargain 100 bolivianos for 4 hours,
    they have enough power to get 2 gringo-sized riders up the local hills.
    The only issue I have is that they really should have found a way to double face the can, so it will work better in store shelves.

    The re charging can be done via the yard-long USB cable that you can plug to the computer,
    or faster asking for, I put it in the USB power adapter from
    of my own devices (Android smartphone, Amazon kindle, etc) along with continue deploying
    it wirelessly. I haven’t really owned the mouse long enough to test the battery life, but Logitech claims it can run for up to two years on a single pair of batteries, and several other reviews I’ve
    found online attest to that fact. As one of the most innovative
    and quality computer peripheral device makers in the world, Switzerland-based Logitech International.

    For those that like to travel, having a camera with
    them is a necessity. Don’t think you need an expensive camera and equipment setup either. This lets you manage exactly how wide the camera shutter opens and the remaining settings are governed automatically to provide you with an excellent picture.
