The post office is closed, in case like me, you forgot.

I woke up this morning and for a moment I thought that MacGyver and I had the day off but then I remember that we don’t work for the bank or the post office and reality slapped me right in the face!

Columbus Day

Let’s be honest though, don’t you love the Columbus Day sales?  I mean if you need some new running shoes, right now might really be a good time to go shopping.  I found Brooks Launch 4’s and Six02 for 79.99!  That’s a pretty good deal.

What I maybe should have been shopping for is a new fitbit because this happened:

Wouldn’t you know, it still works!  I just can’t wear it because it’s broken in half and it falls off.

But instead I have something else in mind and I’ll have to keep you guessing for now.  Details will be coming soon.

MacGyver and I spent a few days at the end of the week last week in Nokomis getting some things ready and having the home inspections for the new buyers.  It was all a whirlwind and then we headed back home.  Of course once we got back home we were just exhausted and ready to relax but we had a ton of stuff that needed to get done.

Sometimes however, things happen and you have to slow down and prioritize.

Let’s stay in bed and cuddle momma!

We decided to take it easy this weekend and relax.  We hit a few garage sales on Saturday morning and then watched a few movies on Saturday night.  On Sunday I picked up around the house and then we cooked out on the grill and chilled in front of the TV.  It was a nice, relaxing weekend.

The one thing I did watch this weekend was the Chicago Marathon!  Galen Rupp is just awesome and he deserves all the accolades in the world but oh my God, does Jordan Hasay have all the promise of being the greatest distance female runner ever.

I am so excited to follow her career and see what exciting things she does.  Congratulations to the both of those two.  I am just in awe.

How was your weekend, did you do anything exciting?

Did you watch the marathon?

Friday Favorites and what I’m in love with…this week.

It’s Friday and you know what that means….FAVORITES! And boy do I have some good ones.

First, my favorite shorts, the Brooks PureProject 3.5” short. I know y’all hear me talk about these all the time but I have the absolute best news ever…My favorite shorts are on sale now at for TWENTY BUCKS!

Go here to order them (especially if you love pockets.) And is having a 20 dollar sale on lots of things, so you may find all kinds of stuff you need…you’re welcome!

Another Favorite: This weekend is the Chicago Marathon

I’m super excited about this one because my girl Tina Muir is running. She’s actually running as an elite because she’s super badass. She is also one of the sweetest people ever and her blog is amazing and full of the best info for runners. If you are at all serious about running, her blog is a must read. Seriously, go there and follow her.

These are some of my favorite articles I read this week. You can click on the pics to read the articles:
