I have many disparate thoughts to share with you this morning. Grab a cup of coffee and take a gander at what's bouncing around in my head today...
Vermont Butter and Cheese Company Cultured Butter (a life-changing product if ever there was one and worth it's own post), made this magically appear for Mother's Day. Thanks, B!
And as for the lip gloss, somewhere in our move, I lost my bag of lip products. Yes, I had a small bag of lip products. I love the story of when I got stopped in airport security with it and had a convo with the TSA guy that went a little something like this: "What's this? Lip Gloss. What's this? Lip Gloss. What's this? Lipstick. What's this? Lip shimmer," until I finally broke down laughing at myself (he didn't think it was so funny). It was probably just as well the Lip Bag went missing... I had been accumulating it's contents practically since college and that stuff has a shelf life, you know. However, this loss left me with nary a lip shine to my name, and being that I rarely get fully made up anymore, a little swipe of lip gloss is the kind of thing that can save me from feeling like a total shlub when I leave the house. So, my mama and I made a pilgrimage to one of the best stores ever, Making Faces, in Portsmouth, NH and a cute young thing in her early twenties helped me find just the go-to lip product. Say hello to Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in the the aptly named shade of Baby Pout. It looks pink here, but just goes on light, sweet and shimmery. It isn't too sticky or shellack-y, and I love it. I am actually happy the Lip Bag is gone. I am all about simplifying life these days, and having just one perfect gloss in my bag hits the mark. I think this shade would be perfect with just about any skin tone if you are looking for a light, daily gloss. Check it out!
What else... let me introduce you to my newest internet girl crush/blog obsession, a photography blog called From Me To You.
From Me to You and take a look... I promise you won't be disappointed.
my half-marathon progress, or lack thereof. An extremely painful case of Achilles tendinitis and my sinus infection kept me off the roads for 3 weeks in April, giving me a serious setback in my training. Combine that with the fact that our move-in date for the new house is just days after the date of the race I picked out, and this whole June half-marathon thing no longer seems like a good plan. I don't want to hurt myself rushing to catch up with my training, and I must be able-bodied on our moving day... soreness or re-injury is a non-option. So, I've decided to just savor my 3 and 4 mile runs right now, and perhaps revisit the idea of a serious race, maybe in the fall, once the dust settles for us in Boston. Life is all about rolling with the punches, right?
