How cool is the sun in these pictures? I'd like to say I'm really that good, but reality is that is was
purely accidental. Nonetheless, it's pretty darn cool.
I FINALLY, after months of needing them, got new running shoes today! Yay! We are lucky enough to have an amazing athletic shoe store in town where the employees actually KNOW something about feet and shoes and fit you with the perfect shoe. Even better, they guarantee the fit and will exchange them for a different pair is they don't work after a couple of weeks. Cool, right?
So, I was able to take advantage of the beautiful fall day and went for a nice run. It's been so long - it's gonna take a while to build up my endurance again. Oh, well - I'll enjoy every minute of it!
After the run, I walked Iggy, showered, dressed and finished a chicken and rice soup I had going. From scratch even - whole chicken and all! Then, I lounged on the couch and worked away on some design work I had to get done. Of all the purchases I've made in the last year (or even more), a laptop was by far the BEST, BEST, BEST! I'm so happy I bit the bullet and just got one! Then, I was off to an evening meeting. The perfect Monday, no?
(For those of you who asked what I got, I got a Dell Inspirion. As much as I LOVE Macs, they're just too expensive for me right now and all of my software is PC based. Either way, I totally love my new laptop and would recommend it hands down.)
As for the outfit, I pulled out a favorite skirt from last year and my new boots. With a little extra money burning a hole in my pocket, I found these shoes at the mall and couldn't resist! I love that they're ankle high without being tight or heeled. And they were only $30! Me loves!
