A Real Motivational Poster

Thank you Runners World

I love this. I also cannot WAIT until I can actually use all of my fitness-centric Christmas gifts- cold weather pullovers, running gloves and a race belt. Santa brought me a pretty hefty fever this year with a stocking full of coughing (not coal!). I'm on the mend, and I may still make the New Years Day 5K I had on my schedule. But for now, wearing those cute pullovers on the couch will just have to do ;)

For the Boys

Yesterday, I was looking through the gift guides over at A Cup of Jo and found quite possibly, the perfect groomsman gift. I always thought engraved flasks were a cheapo and cheesy gift, but this one is chic and classy. And they would make for a great boys photo op :)

Ok, so I'm a little late on the Stylemint bandwagon, but I finally bit on a 30% off deal over Cyber Monday and couldn't resist!

I signed up a few months ago, but couldn't fully justify $29.99 for a t shirt- even if it was designed by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. On one hand, it's a great opportunity to get a "designer look", but some of the shirts looked like something I could find at Target. With the Cyber Monday deal, I came across the super popular Lincoln shirt, and it's draped dolman sleeves and versatile gray hue pulled me in.

Based on the sizing, I went with a 2, and I should have gone up to a 3 to get some more length. That being said, the 2 fits great through the body and is one of the softest t's I could ask for. To keep the fit, this shirt is going in my "hand wash only" rotation, which may be a turn off for some.

No self photos today, but I'll try to get one up as soon as my closet doesn't look like Operation Christmas is using it as headquarters!

*full disclosure: if you sign up through my Stylemint link, I get a free credit (aka shirt!). You don't have to sign up through me, but it would be really nice of you if you decide to :)

This weekend, my parents took the family (and the boys!) up to NYC for our annual "stuff our faces and look at lights fest", show included. The entire weekend was wonderful, but the highlight for me was our family dinner at Birreria, Mario Batali's beer garden on the 15th floor of Eataly. The food was phenomenal, beer delicious, and I couldn't help but sneak a picture of the gorgeous view from our table.

Something Blue...

I came across this sweet image on my RSS feed and immediately wanted to save it for my bridal inspiration. How lovely would it be to make your wedding dress into even more of a cherished keepsake?

Sadly, the blogger never released the post (weird how Google Reader does that), and she also did not cite a source other than "found on SMP". If this is your image or you know where it came from, please let me know so I can credit you 100%!

Side note- it's December 1st!!!!
