Saturday smiles and a day with Donnie

Happy Sunday-Funday-Runday!

It's cloudy, humid and HOT in Houston today (well, I'm hot anyway...but I think I'm a bit sick, so perhaps it's only hot to me). Since Donnie was SUCH a champ last weekend and went with me to Galveston and waited around for me for HOURS to finish my half ironman (and got just as sunburnt as I did, poor guy) I told him that Sunday would be his day, and I'd do whatever he wanted. And then I woke up feeling like I'd been hit by a freight train, so I've been a real stick in the mud all day. (Sorry, my love! I'll make it up to you!)

Yesterday, on the other hand, was a BEAUTIFUL day here in Houston! I called up my girl, Misty, and we met at Starbucks to start our run. (My favorite things: coffee and running!)
I'm such a sucker for the Houston skyline... Alright, any skyline, really..

We tried to get the awesome city in the background, but instead just got the sunshine. This girl is one of my FAVES to run with. ...and one of my faves in general :)

In my opinion, a good run route has numerous photo ops.

One sad thing did happen on our run though- I ripped my Lulu shorts. Sad, sad day. They're still wearable though. (And I did not take a picture, because it was a little too close to my backside and I didn't think anyone needed to see a picture of THAT.) I have, however, been thinking lately of switching to Athleta. Their yoga stuff is pretty drool worthy! (Not only am I a sucker for a skyline, I'm also a HUGE sucker for expensive work out apparel...)

After our run, I wandered aimlessly around Babies R Us for a while (maybe it's just the store I went to, but there was NO organization to their layout and it gets us non-parents really confused!! Am I right?!), bought far more than I needed at Target, and then headed to this FABULOUS high rise (anytime I go somewhere with valet I feel uber ritzy) to celebrate this lovely lady and her bambino number 2!
So wonderful to be reunited with these lovely ladies again!! 

Of course, the food was amazing (I would have taken a picture, but I couldn't hold myself back long enough before digging in). And there was fabulous cake. There is nothing better than sugar and carbs all on one plate. Once again, Miss No-Self-Control over here couldn't keep it together long enough to take a picture of that either. Sorry, gang. All you really need to know is that it was delish. And if you want to know the way to my heart- it's cake. And expensive running outfits.

Happy Sunday! For the rest of the day, I'm at Donnie's mercy- which means we'll probably watch whatever movies he wants, take naps, and snuggle. I don't hate it.

What's your brand of choice for work-out ensems? Any Lulu AND Athleta wearers out there? What's your preference?

What are you a major sucker for?

cake, skylines, puppies, cute clothes..

What's on your favorite run route?

  1. Bummer about your Lulu shorts :o( I stick with whatever work out gear I find on sale at Target or the outlets. But I think that's because I'm cheap, more so than what I prefer. Babies R' Us is confusing as all get out. That place overwhelms me in .2 seconds. I love your chevron maxi dress; it needs to warm up here, because I'm tired of having to wear pants and long sleeve shirts!
