New ring, new shoes, uh, best weekend ever!

Let me just start by apologizing for this post because even though I had several opportunities this weekend to write and tell you about all the things going on around here, I didn’t. So, this is going to be last minute verbal vomit and I’ll probably butcher the hell out of the English language but if you’ve read this blog before, you’re probably used to it.

MacGyver and I are going to have a crazy week this week.  We are in the process of our closings on the houses in Nokomis.  I’m looking forward to this new chapter but also sad to be close one because I kind of feel like the Nokomis house is what started to bring our family all down to Florida and we really love that place.

On the other hand, the new place is pretty darn sweet and much bigger and I can’t wait to put my Pinterior Designer skills to work and make it really ours!  Trust me when I say you’ll get sick of the pictures.

Over the weekend MacGyver and I hit up a lot of the community garage sales and I scored some stained glass windows for 15 bucks!

We also stopped in for lunch at the cutest little café in Dunedin called Bonnie’s.  It’s a French café and they only serve breakfast and lunch but if you’re ever in the area, you should try it, it’s really good.

On Saturday we helped a friend remove some trees and limbs from her yard and then MacGyver and I chilled around the house and hung out with the dogs.  Hank is perfectly fine to hang out on the sofa with us if there’s a blanket around but Boomer steals the throw pillows and hides under the table.

Also on Saturday I got two packages in the mail that I’m so excited to tell you about.  The first is something I told you about months ago and I’ve been waiting on for what seems like forever.

Motiv Ring

That’s right, I got the Motiv ring!  I haven’t had ample time or the opportunity to test it out completely but I promise once I do, you will get a full review.

Secondly I got a little present from Mizuno.

Wave Rider 21’s, ah hell yes!

I am so stoked to run in these shoes and I cannot wait to give you guys a full review!  It may be a few weeks before I can give you the most thorough review but I’m crazy excited about it.  I love Mizuno and these shoes are so pretty and they’re the best fit for me with my hip issues.  Can you tell I’m a tad bit excited?   Well, I am!

And with that, I’ve got to run.  I have an early morning appointment.  The next time you’ll hear from me, we’ll be in Nokomis, knee deep in boxes and packing tape.  Oh joy!

What was your weekend like?

What’s your favorite pair of running shoes right now?

Have you tried the Motiv Ring?  Do you like it?

  1. That motiv ring looks huge! (I know your fingers aren’t that big lol)

    I’m sad that I missed out on this great house in FL! I tried contacting the listing agent twice and didn’t get a response 🙁 I’m sure it’s 3rd time’s a charm for the seller.

    Are the stained glass full windows or panes? They are pretty!

    I’ve wanted to try Mizunos for awhile. I like Brooks Ghost.

    • It is big, but I got one of the bigger sizes because I want to wear it on my middle finger. So far I’m lovin it! The windows are actually about two feet long by a foot wide. They are going to go in the middle of two long windows we have in the bedroom of the new house on each side of the bed.

      I am hoping I get to run in the Mizuno’s soon. I’m on levaquin again right now and the doctor won’t let me run until i finish it. 🙁 Friday cannot come soon enough! lol
