New Shoes!!

So which ones do you think I'm more excited for?
While the heels were on sale for less than $30, are for my bro-in-law's wedding next weekend, and go perfectly with this dress
It looks better on than on the hanger, I promise.  I'll show you after the wedding.

I'm definitely more excited for the Sauconys!!  It's the first time I've run in anything other than New Balance 758s and I LOVE them!!  Not only were they on sale, they feel great!

I was really hesitant to run in the new shoes outside in MI - it's been very rainy and snowy lately and I didn't want to get them dirty :(  I quickly got over that though and have loved them ever since.
The only downside to these new shoes is the pink.  I know.  I'm a girl; I'm supposed to love pink.  I don't.  Never have.  Blue is my favorite color.  So since the store only had pink and I love the shoes, I got them.  Imagine my disappointment when I got home and saw that they come in blue online (at the same sale price I paid!).  I was bummin' but clearly, I'll live :)

I can't believe it's been an entire week since I've posted last.  Sorry.  Here's a brief recap in pics:
baking my tail off
close up of delicious cookies for our running group's (called 501) holiday party
cake balls ready for the last step of dipping in candy coating
I've been shopping like crazy all week for our family Christmas that we're celebrating this Sunday - I know, it's insanely early, but it's the only time my two sisters and I, along with our parents can get together before Christmas Day.  So I need to get busy wrapping!! Yes, that is all for two nieces and a nephew. 


  1. Love that dress, the shoes...and those cookies look awesome! Can you come and bake some for me? :)

  2. Ha! When I saw the post title and the picture of the heels, I thought, "big deal. heels." I'm so glad you didn't disappoint! Yes, I'd be more excited about running shoes too ;)

    Have you tried for good deals? Sometimes they have my shoe, sometimes not.

  3. Those cookies look yummy. Did you draw the 501 on them because those numbers look typewritten! Yeah not a fan of pink either.

  4. damn.. that dress is hot.... as are those heels!

  5. I can't wait to see you all dressed up!

    Cake balls! I freaking love those. I od on them at work this week. I need to learn how to make them.

  6. Thanks guys!

    Erica - just place your cookie order - I make everything but Spartan-related cookies :)

    Danielle - I LOVE overstock, but have never even thought of looking for shoes there. I will now.

    Tahoe Girl - The 501 numbers are candy melted into molds. That's why they turned out so nice. Really time consuming, but totally worth it!

    Rebecca and Christy - I can't wait to wear the dress at the wedding! It's my 'I'm feeling sexy, check me out' dress. (which is totally NOT me in real life).
