Busy Summer...

This week has been a busy one and it is not over yet!  This afternoon we have to drive the 2-3 hours (depending on traffic) to CT for a friends wedding.  Because we have stuff to do on Sunday we have to drive back tonight!  Whoa! But anyways, I probably going to wear THIS.

 Sometimes I feel like summer can be misleading, it is supposed to be slow and relaxing and I feel like this summer has been nothing short of hectic.  So I have had to go into the city more often to get stuff from the garment district.  I met Scott for lunch one day while I was there, I am pretty sure it rained later that day.  How's the weather where you are?  It has been raining like crazy here.

Then I desperately needed some shelves for my work studio so I ran out to ikea (drove really, not ran :))  While I was there I always look at stuff I want but not really going to buy.  Like these new dressers.  I don't really love white furniture but I am really liking these.  What do you think?

Voila! Can you see the shelves behind my dress forms?  I finally put all the boxes together last night so I will be all set for the weeks to come.

Last night I had to go into the city once again and so I just met Scott in Union Square so we could eat dinner(whole foods salad) and have our usual 16 handles for dessert.  This time I decided enough with the fruit and tart stuff, I went straight for the unhealthy toppings.  I mean you really need to change it up once in a while, right?!


Confession, with Summer being so crazy I haven't been able to blog around that much.  But I am excited for fall.  With a new season comes a new routine.

I am about to head out this morning for my 18 miles at 8:45 pace.  I slept in a little but I think I needed the sleep so I am ok with that.   Getting so excited for the Giveaway on Monday!  I know you guys will love it!!
PS Don't forget to enter the Giveaway with Gourmet Runner! With training season in full swing you will not want to miss what she is giving away.

Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!  Any fun plans besides the usual long run?



  1. Good luck for your 18 miles, wow! I have a love/hate relationship with Ikea. I always end up with too much stuff, but it's just so cheap and cute. But those cinnamon rolls....
    Thanks for the giveaway love!

  2. Oh my God, that dress is GORGEOUS! Almost vintage-looking, stunning. I need to know what shoes you'll wear with it! :)
    The weather here in Toronto was HOT for July and August it's been a mix of rain and sun- the nights are getting cooler which makes me so sad!!!
    Have a great time at the wedding and post pics :)

  3. I am TOTALLY ready for fall. Like bring on the cool, crisp weather. The scarves. The boots. The sweaters. I'm ready for it ALL!

    No long runs for me this weekend but we did a relatively long bike ride of 35 miles! Good times.
