Friday Favorites!

It’s that time again. The time when I get to tell you all about my favorite things for the week. And here we go…

Nike Running Skirt

This awesome skirt that I’ve been eyeing for months that I found for 33% off! I just ordered it. My thinking is that this skirt will help me get better faster because it is definitely a racing skirt, don’t ya think?

I’m also in love with my vintage Laura Ashley dishes which took me many, many months to acquire.

Laura Ashley Petite Fleur

I now have a complete service for 8. I still need a few accessory pieces but considering they’re from 1976, I think I’m pretty lucky to have found all the pieces that I have.

A favorite every week is these two guys!

Mommy's BoysThere isn’t a day that goes by that they don’t wake me up and get me out to exercise. Even though I can’t run, they make sure I keep my fitness level up there with lots of walks!

And you know how I love my estate sales! Well, in case you think you’ll never find anything great, here’s another favorite this week.

Second pair of Maui Jim's

Those are Maui Jim’s, the MJ Sport, which are awesome for running. I know this because MacGyver shelled out over 200 bucks for the pair I own. I paid $5 for this second pair…..AT AN ESTATE SALE! Hollah!

Vera Bradley makes really cute, affordable and functional purses. I have tons of them but lately this one is my favorite.

Very Bradley Purse

I carry it everywhere. It’s so easy to organize and I love me some organization, for real.

My Mom sent me this next thing a few months ago in my birthday present package. I didn’t use it for the longest time because I didn’t think I would like it.

Clinique Chubby Stick

I was wrong.

I love the Clinique chubby stick for eyes. Best. Thing. Ever. I love it so much in fact that I just ordered 3 more.

In case your wondering if MacGyver get’s mad about all my purchases….he doesn’t really know about all of them. I just sort of mix them all in with the other stuff. And he very rarely see’s the packages come to the house because I’ve got the mailman on my payroll. You’d be amazed at what a dozen of my chocolate covered peanut butter bon bons can do! 😉

And this my friends is my fave of the week….it’s the thing I’m using a lot while injured.

Hobie Kayak

That’s my Hobie Kayak. It’s got pedals. MacGyver has one too but his is bigger. I opted for a sail instead of the larger kayak but that was a mistake because MacGyver stole my sail. I’m not bitter or anything though. I stole his plugs, bwahahahahaha

And with that, I need to go because MacGyver is waiting on me. We’re taking a kayak lunch, as long as his isn’t at the bottom of the lake.

Have a great weekend.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment and tell me your favorites this week.

Running and Sales and Kayaks, Oh My

Hey, hey, hey! How’s your weekend going?

I ran 9.8 miles on Saturday and 4 miles this morning. I woulda ran 10 miles on Saturday but I plugged a gazillion fans into the power strip along with the treadmill and around 9.8 miles or 93 minutes, the powerstrip went POP! MacGyver said something about the amps and how I had overloaded the fuse box or fusilage or something. All I know is I was only .2 stinking miles short of my 10, .2, now ain’t that about a bitch. I’ll get over it, eventually.

In other random news, look what I found on the bar when I got up Saturday

Tiny EggsI put my old shoe on the bar so you can see how small they are. Two little eggs. I have no idea what would have laid them?? Maybe a lizard? What do you think? (By the way, I don’t normally leave my shoe on the bar, just sayin).

Today being Sunday, MacGyver and I got our deal huntin on. Yeah, we love a good deal. And since we happen to be looking for some kayaks for our Venice house, today was our lucky day. Let me introduce you to the new toys:


Fishing Kayak



MacGyver’s kayak is a ride on fishing kayak and mine is more of a sport kayak. Mine was on sale at Dicks Sporting Goods. It is normally 299 but it was on sale for 149 and we had a coupon for 10 dollars off. So I got mine for $139.

MacGyver got his at Sport’s Authority. It was originally $499 on sale for $349 with an additional 15% off making it $297 and then we got an additional 20% off making it $238 and because I totally worked my charms, the manager honored my $10 dicks coupon so MacGyver’s fishing kayak was only $228!

So can you guess what we did for the rest of the day?

Hope you had a great weekend! What did you do?
