Talk about opposite week… last week was insane, this week is calmer than calm (i.e. boring). Not that I’m complaining, it’s just hard to go from one extreme to the other.
Ok, maybe I am complaining.
There is some excitement going on later in the week – we finally found out (today) who B’s teacher is next year (do I really have a 1st grader?? Yikes) and we get to meet her on Thursday. She’s a Seminole, so I already like her! I know B is excited about finding out who is in his class. I am only mildly prepared for this school year. Such a change from last year when I had everything I needed and more at this point. How things change in a year.
In cheating on my Saucony’s news – I broke in my new Brooks this week and they are different, but dare I say I like them??
I’veonly worn them on the treadmill and during strength training – and it might stay that way. I like the snugness of the Pure Connect and the roundness of the heel (they REALLY change your center of gravity when you strike), but I think I could run further distances in my Kinvaras or Guides, which for the record I really, really love. Don’t make me choose.
Speaking of shoes…my favorite little guy got his first pair of REAL running shoes today and he is enamoured.
Aren’t they adorable? I went with the Brooks Pure Flow for Kids because I read great things about them. Plus, as you can see, they are neon green. Who doesn’t love neon green sneaks? I’m pretty sure he would have gone to bed wearing them if I let him. Or at least snuggled with them. He’s so excited about running in them. That’s my boy! Now if only he knew how to tie his shoes (don’t worry – we are seriously working on that one!)
In the this nothing to do with my life, but I want to be friends with Jennifer Garner news — this picture makes me squeeeeee! (no, not the half naked picture of Miranda Kerr)
I am a HUGE fan of Alias (God, I miss that show) and I love to see that this two really do love each other in real life. I don’t know WHY this makes me giddy, but it does. Maybe it’s because they just seem like genuinely nice people?? Jen, call me for a playdate – our kids are the same age 😉
And finally, in Breaking Bad news – we have 3 episodes left in Season 4 and we can finally catch up on Season 5, which is patiently waiting on our DVR.
This whole Call Me Maybe thing might be overdone, but I couldn’t resist.
We’re in the homestretch — and then we’ll have withdrawal. Speaking of which… time to watch!
Do you remember your first pair of running shoes? I don’t, but I don’t know that there was a big variety growing up. I do remember getting excited about LA Gears and Keds.*In full disclosure, this post contains Amazon Affiliate links. You don’t have to click on them – I just didn’t want to be shady about it*
