Since I always struggle with coming up with intros for random posts, I’m basically just going to skip it all together today and just go right into some thinking out loud!
So I ordered my favorite Lululemon shirt in pink yesterday. I now have it in five colors. I immediately felt guilt about ordering it because I definitely don’t NEED it, but I do love it and I will wear the heck out of it, so I’m trying to stop feeling guilty about it. So how many can I get before it is officially too many? Can you tell that I love it?
Speaking of shopping, I think I’m going to bite the bullet and try new running shoes. My friend Cecilia just did a post about switching to Hokas from her beloved Mizunos and I have to say I totally understand when she says she felt like she was breaking up with her running shoes! I have run in the Nimbus since 2006. And even though I don’t love the changes they’ve made for the 17s and 18s, I still feel like I need to stick with them. But I have no idea what to try!? I’ve heard that the Brooks Glycerin and Saucony Triumph are similar so do I go with them? Try something totally different like Hokas or Altras? Help! Since Lane and I are going to Denver in a few weeks, I think I’ll go to Boulder Running Co. and try some on there. Better than ordering a million shoes and sending most back!
I just started laser hair removal on my legs. For as long as I can remember I’ve always gotten these red bumps on my legs. It was never right after I shaved, so I don’t think it was irritation from that, I’ve never had issues with lotion or shaving cream so I don’t think it is a sensitivity of any kind. The only thing I can figure out is that it’s when the hair starts to grow back. Fingers crossed that this works! I have always hated wearing shorts in the summer (well, anytime, but that’s about the only time I’d wear shorts outside my house!) because of the bumps on my legs. Hopefully I’ll be able to get over that this summer!
My sisters dog Millie passed away this week. I think it hit my whole family because it was so unexpected and we all really loved her. She was a Scottie and even though she was a tiny dog, she definitely ruled the roost. My sister also has Golden Retrievers and it was always clear to everyone who was in charge. And Millie was a better retriever than any dog I’ve ever seen. Anytime someone came in the house, she’d pick up her ball and drop it close to your feet. If you didn’t start to play with her, she would pick it up again and drop it closer to your feet. Sometimes if you were sitting down, she’d go so far as to jump into your lap and drop the ball. She knew how to get your attention! And she never got tired of playing fetch! She would play for hours if someone would throw the ball that long!
Our local university is sending both their men’s and women’s teams to the NCAA Division II basketball tourney! One of our good friend’s husband is the coach of the men’s team, so we are cheering hard that they win their next game(s)! Good luck to all the teams playing!
And since I’m a big basketball fan I have to mention that I’m super excited for the Big 12 tournament! It started on Wednesday night and Lane’s team (K-State) got a win, which means that our teams our playing each other (University of Kansas) tonight! We will probably be watching in separate rooms.
Do you ever feel guilty for spending money on things that aren’t a necessity? Any running shoe suggestions? Who else loves college basketball?
