The dress drama concluded happily today. I went back to the little boutique where I first went dress shopping return one of the dresses I originally bought, and saw this hot little number hanging on the rack:
It’s freaking perfect. Done and done.
Also, here’s a better picture of the strapless one from The Limited that I picked up yesterday:
I actually ended up taking back both of the original dresses. Lesson learned: go with your gut when it comes to what looks good on you and what doesn’t. I’m short and musculo-curvy and I really don’t think I can pull off tit-curtain-belted-sacks, no matter how cute and trendy they are.
So that’s that. And because unless we’re talking about skid marks on Tempo shorts, this is the farthest thing from a fashion blog on the planet…so I promise I’m done playing dress up now. Thanks for all of your help along the way!
Moving along. Let’s talk about how it feels to go for a run after a week off.
Um…I guess that’s all there is to say about that! It was both by accident and design that I ended up taking a long stretch of rest days after the Brooklyn Half last weekend. This week has been crazy busy, and the weather has been shitty, and well…if there’s ever a time to take a little break, it’s after the last long race of the season.
A couple of people have asked if I’m planning on running while on vacation next week. Yes! Most definitely! Nothing too long or hard, but I’m going to try to get out there each morning, even if it’s just a couple of miles. Gotta do something to flush the previous night’s Mojitos out of my system! I’m excited to do some beach running and I’m totally packing my Vibrams.
Okay…laundry calls. Happy Friday night, y’all!
Today’s EAT: I needed to stop for lunch today between meetings. And at that exact moment, the skies opened up and released a torrent of rain.
So I hit the drive-thru:
I don’t even pretend that I don’t like McDonald’s. I love McDonald’s. I think it’s delicious.
But obviously I know it’s crappy for you. To keep my Mickey D’s splurges from being total gut-bombs, I usually get a happy meal (or, in today’s case, a Mighty Kids Meal. Two extra nuggets for only $0.60!)
It came with two Batman figures, one of which did not stand up on its own. Lame.
Today’s DRINK: Leftovers from Wednesday night’s party!
Boxed wine on a Friday night. Classy.
Today’s RUN: On the dreadmill for 40 minutes, which was good for 4.6 miles. Definitely not my favorite, but better than getting struck by lightning!
Today’s QUESTION: Do you have a favorite fast-food splurge? Mine is definitely McDonald’s fries. Suck it, Burger King.
