Seven Things

1. I want to dress like those illustrations. image via Paper Fashion

2. The first thing I read this morning was this. Um, kind of a bummer, right? I need to get my hands on the actual study, but runners, what do you think?

3. The house is almost finished – we ended up postponing the move for a week, though. We decided it would be smart to let the house off-gas for a good number of days before moving in. Next Friday it is!

4. Have you seen The Golden Door of Happiness? I am so in love.

5. Good thing we aren’t moving tomorrow since I still have tons of packing to do. Hey, you know a fantastic way to procrastinate? Fly across the country! Yep, I leave for New York early Monday morning, so I best be getting things wrapped up around here in the next two days.

6. You guys, the Great Bootie Search of 2012 rages on. I’m putting together another post featuring four (FOUR) more pairs that I tried. Did I find the perfect one? You will soon see. OH, THE SHOE SUSPENSE.

7. Hey, if you are looking to splurge on gifts for the lady in your life, please let me help you with that. I’m down with spending other people’s money.

Happy weekend!

    #2. Even if it is true… I don’t care. I enjoy running half marathons and possibly another marathon or two before I die. It still has to be healthier than other choices I make in my life… like cookies and wine and beer and delicious savory foods.

    I fall into the “no matter what they might say is healthy, I probably run more than that” category, so I’m sure I’m about to die at any moment anyway.

    Regardless, Runner’s World had a reply to that Heart/wsj article that might make you feel better:

    Your Golden Yellow Door of Happiness is SO happy!

    I immediately thought of something I’ve seen online that I thought was so adorable and ups the happiness factor (see 1st photo):


    The decal came from here:

    I think my life’s finish line would be faster WITHOUT running. It just makes me feel better, I need it! Plus it’s better than couch potato-ing.

    Your door is amazing!

    Someone that has seen both our blogs told me they think You & I look alike. So I had to see for myself. But they were wrong, you are way prettier than me.
