I will probably not delete this blog, but my posts will probably be more sporadic. I don't feel pressure to post like I used to, and that's a good thing. Actually this post feels really forced; so who knows? We'll see what happens.
A N Y W A Y...
We have half a day left of school until summer vacation. I feel like we're already out, and I couldn't be happier. Going for a few hours on Tuesday to pass out report cards will be a breeze.
Geno is back strong into running again. He hasn't gotten his fast, fast pace back yet; but he's not hurting...so that's good news. The speed will come in time.
I love weekend mornings...long runs and home cooked breakfasts.
I also love spending time with our "fellas" as well. I knew I was going to love Pope, but he has stolen my heart completely. He is such a sweet boy.
And Beulah is our wild child. She keeps things rockin' around our house...when she's not sneaking into the bed so I can't make it up in the mornings.
In other news, I received the Spring Vox Box from Influenster yesterday. It included:
Kiss Everlasting French Nail Tips: Sorry. Ya'll know how I feel about fake nails. Professionally done acrylics look great (at first) but destroy your real nails. Never again... I've never tried this kind, but I am not crafty at all, and I just don't see this happening.
The Soft Lips Cube: This stuff is thick, yet light. It is very soothing on your lips, but doesn't feel overwhelming. Geno and I joke that we can't use any type of chapstick or lip balm while we run--makes it feel difficult to breathe. I thought I was the only one, until he mentioned it to me one day.
I'm in the sun and wind a lot, and this cube feels really good when I come in for the day.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes: This is another one that I really love. Rimmel is a less expensive brand sold at Wal-Mart and most other big retailers and drugstores. I have bought all types of mascara in the past, both expensive and cheap, with about the same results. This stuff is amazing. No kidding. You really can tell that it lengthens your lashes, and it isn't clumpy. I also like the fact that it is not waterproof. I like how waterproof mascara stays on during a sweaty run; but it is HELL trying to get it off later; even with make up removal wipes. If I'm not gonna be sweating later, then Rimmel Scandal Eyes I will be wearing! It really is that good!
Playtex Sport Tampons: I won't go into too much about these, but I was pleasantly surprised to find these in the VoxBox. I use this product already, and have for years. Highly recommended.
Nivea Skin Firming Hydration: I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but it is going straight into my race bag. My favorite thing to do after a long race is to change clothes and refresh my skin with good lotion!
Happy Summer, Ya'll!
