Hey there, remember when I whipped up a yarn wreath for you – but didn’t let you touch it? Those flowers were so fun to make that I made more. Well, just one more.
I deconstructed an old necklace I had lying around and stitched in a little bead to jazz it up a notch.
Then, I hot glued the hell out of the back and attached a pin so I could wear it places and ask leading questions like “Isn’t this the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen?” and “Can you believe I made it? How talented am I??”
If you want, you could gush lovingly about it right here on my blog. Starting now.
As an ode to the adorable runner women that I met last night at the half marathon training clinic that I’m teaching, I thought I’d get all sentimental and take a look back on one of the many sweet and sweaty memories I have made while running.
Here I am with two friends, Gina and Connie, post 13.1 miles. A half marathon is a long way, but it’s surprising how fast it seems to fly by when you get to share those steps with a friend.
If possible, make some memories this weekend and if you get sweaty while doing it, then all the better. Obviously, that’s up for interpretation.
I’m back with Wore Zone. It’s the Baby it’s Cold Outside edition. Luckily for us (no), we’ve had a lot of snowstorms. Which lent itself as a perfect opportunity to strong arm the Hubs out into the elements and make him take pictures.

Do you have a bulky sweater helping you survive this miserable winter? Hello? Anyone make it this far? That wasn’t very satisfying, was it?
Ok, confession time. I have been so inspired by people’s outfit posts (like the ones that link up to The Pleated Poppy on Wednesdays). They have really encouraged me to shop my own closet and play with new pairings and accessories. I thought the hardest part of Wore Zone for me would be to come up with something fresh and cute to wear without shopping…and although that’s a daily struggle, I didn’t realize an even bigger problem lay in wait. Getting my picture taken. I’m going to be honest, this picture taking process has been brutal on my self esteem. I’m not kidding. I’ve tried the self timer tripod pics, bathroom pics (look how smoothly that went down),
and finally had to sweet talk the Hubs into snapping pictures. BUT, I feel so self conscious during the whole ordeal that I can’t stand it any longer.
So, I’m discontinuing War Zone. It was good (meh) while it lasted.
