I also officially started to pull out my Under Armour for these cold, morning runs. And guess what guys? This girl has some new kicks too. Helllloooo New Balance. To quote Rihanna, I found love in a hopeless place. Well not so much hopeless, the Internet has endless possibilities. Check out my new babies! Swoon.
I've been a Brooks girl for the longest time, but ya know what? These all terrain running shoes were just screaming my name and they just-so-happened to arrive at my door Friday night. Just in time for my long distance, weekend runs. AMAZING support and couldn't believe I was overspending all this time. I'm a New Balance girl from now on I think.
My parents also met up with my aunts and uncles this weekend to sort out some of my grandmother's things that weren't in the will. Now I really didn't expect anything, however when I was little I was always drawn to this little glass cat. Out of all of the expensive statues, Lladros and paintings her and my grandfather had collected from their world travels, I always associated that chubby little glass cat with her place. And I couldn't help but tear up when my dad made sure that I got to have that little chubby cat. The little things right? My grandmother also ALWAYS wore a classic Burberry scarf during the colder months and I was honored to inherit that as well. It's definitely replacing my own.
Other happenings this weekend included my niece's homecoming from the hospital! Lily made her debut on September 11th and she's happy, healthy and has a full head of hair! And of course the second I held her, my mother-in-law couldn't help but pointing out that I was a "natural." I never really understood this expression other than to mean that Josh and I need to work on giving her even more grandkids. SIGH. She's relentless.
We celebrated by going to the best Hibachi grill restaurant in town where we stuffed our faces full of the most amazing food. Earlier in the week, Josh also bought me The Sims 4. Man I love that guy. Hours upon hours have already been spent in build mode making the perfect house. I'll never grow out of this game. Never. Can't stop, won't stop.
Also, for those of you who haven't discovered Dunkin' Donuts' pumpkin coffee. Don't walk, RUN to your closest location and get one. It's only $2 and pretty much the most amazing thing you'll ever have without feeling like you need to spend a couple of extra hours at the gym to get rid of those extra cals. Move on over PSL....less cals AND less $$?? I think it's time we break up...at least for now...yes it's you and not me. Peace out. America and now Em runs on Dunkin.
