Do you see a trend? I couldn't get enough yellow this week because it has been raining non stop! And gray! And cold!! And it's April!! I had to wear my winter coat this week for Pete's sake. So I'm making my own sunshine.
I also picked up a pair of Brooks Ravenna 4's this week. My Mizuno Wave Inspire's wore down quickly and I'm having a lot of pain in the ball of my foot and my toes. I headed back to FleetFeet and we're going to try Brooks. So far, Nike Frees didn't cut it, New Balance nearly killed me, and I loved my Mizunos but shouldn't be having toe/foot pain? My guy says my gait is fine (maybe the slightest bit forward) so we're hoping a tweak in the shoe will help. Wow, getting old is for the birds. I have a good feeling about these Brooks though, I hope these are the ones for me. I'm trying to get all the kinks worked out before official marathon training starts!
This weekend I'm running the Willpower 5K.
It's for a really amazing kid (and a close friend of one of my boys' teachers) who has been through a lot -- his story is here and I'm so happy to run his race. Reason #759 that I love running; being a part of something that matters.
My sister-in-law has introduced me to a few new (to me) blogs to love on, one of which is Kumquat. How good do these coconut donuts look? Lots of great gluten free recipes.
Thank y'all for your sweet comments about my living room -- wish I could have you all over for coffee!
Next up is my bedroom with this inspiration:

Did I mention I signed someone up for Kindergarten this week?
Always my baby.
Okay, done crying!
