Whoa! Hello! First, I have to say thanks for the overwhelming support on my big, sole-baring post. Don’t expect me to get so personal TOO often, but your thoughts and encouragement were wholeheartedly appreciated. Even my father-in-law chimed in. How sweet is that?? For some reason I was afraid to hit “publish” because I thought I might get some negativity. Nope. Thanks for keeping my corner of the internet a positive space!!!
Guess what? Kevin finally made it to work on his bike! With his MBA wrapping up, he had a little time this weekend to put the bike together:
How hot is he in THOSE SILVER SHOES!!!! Hahahaha. If I was a biker, I’d glitter them!!! He left a bit earlier, but it really doesn’t take him much longer than it does fighting traffic (it’s only 15 miles, but that can be a lot during rush hour)!
After Kevin left, it was time to get the dogs up!
Notice how one is horizontal and one is vertical in the mornings?!? That says something about their personalities!! Haha. Boyd used to routinely lie in bed until 10AM or later. He’s been getting up a bit earlier with Pippa C. around because he’s afraid he’s going to miss something!
I was so proud of Pippa because this morning when I went to put on her gentle leader, she literally slipped her own nose right into it! We are not accustomed to cooperative canines!
We ran about 4 miles together before stopping at home for some water. Why? Because I found pullup bars at a park nearby!! Hooray!!! That calls for a WOD! I made Pippa go back with me and hang out by the bench because every time I leave her home alone she has an accident. Worked like a charm!
I did have to pause once to get Pippa to chill out after a dog went past, but it was all good. I felt like a total nerd doing jumping pull-ups… but who will the nerd be when I can do REAL ONES?!?!? Plus GPP says it’s the way to go, so I believe it. Haha.
In between workouts, I grabbed one of my favorite Fages.
Mmm Mmm… and trust me. I made lunch ASAP when I got home. But I haven’t been bothering to take pictures of my sweet potatoes & leftovers lately.
Tonight’s dinner was an effort towards PaleOMG’s Sweet Potato Enchiladas. I did kind of a sketchy job preparing the sweet potatoes, but it still turned out fabulously. But it got really hot in the kitchen with two burners, two dogs, and the oven going!!!
Uh oh… I have a little complaint to make….
Does this shoe look pink to you!?!?!
I see pink edges… They definitely sent me the condensed grey when I ordered condensed pink/white. It even says so in my confirmation email AND on the packing slip. The packing slip has some blurb about part of my order being out of stock but says nothing about grey shoes?? That was the only thing I ordered. Sigh. Yes, I buy shoes almost completely based on looks. That’s why I was afraid to stray from my beloved Nike. And this is how they repay me??? Lol.
I know this is not a REAL problem, but I don’t know what to do. I know if I try to exchange, it’s going to take weeks! And I’m already seriously overdue for new shoes. My current ones have many holes. But I don’t want to spend the next three months looking at my feet and hating on them. I will totally do that. I don’t doubt it for one second. Haha. If they were going to mess up, at least they could have sent me green. Grey?!?! Boo.
Let’s stop complaining and have a picture of a puppy:
What a sweetie pie!!
What would you do it my shoe situation? Cry me a river, right? But running shoes are important!!!
