A 2-fer!! Pretty much I’m still running every chance I get that there’s a break in the weather. Tuesday was the last time. It sucks to have 40+ MPH winds but hey, what are ya’ gonna’ do?? Still looking for that treadmill….
Nothing like being a strong, capable, honest, compassionate woman who laughs a lot. Mostly at myself. Let them tell me I can’t…. Watch me!! I’m thankful for attitude!!
I had an epiphany today. I’ve gotten questions about what my “vice” is. I still don’t know that I have one. I like my house clean, I take good care of things, I own over 130 pairs of shoes and wear every single pair, I like to cook, I love watching my kids grow up. But when I think of a vice I think of something you do that makes you feel better. Some people drink, some escape into a clouded world of drugged euphoria, some smoke, some eat to feel happy.
The kids and I went shopping at Target yesterday. (Pronounced Tar-jay also known as the Bulls-eye Boutique). I noticed that my kids pattern me. I “feel” clothes. When I walk through racks of clothing and I see things I like I touch them. That’s a deal breaker for me. If they don’t feel delicious, I won’t buy them. All my kids do the same thing. “Oooh, Mom, look at this one. Feel it!”. It’s awesome. Olivia had babysitting money and we found a shirt in the running department. Long sleeved, hood, relaxed fit, long body, 3 colors. It felt divine. She
begged and pleaded asked to borrow the $5 she was short and got two – gray and blue. I was tapped out with all the freaking birthdays so I’ll have to go back. She said it was a good purchase because she can wear them running when it’s just a little chilly AND wear them for everyday. Another 2-fer!!!
finally got dressed after cleaning and cooking. I sat in front of my closet and felt my shirts until I felt the one I wanted. That’s when it hit me. My vice. Last night I wore my silk Ann Taylor tank top in eggplant to bed and most of today. I love clothes that feel good. I feel better when I’m in them. Soft, yummy, delicious clothes are my vice.
