It's hailing here. I was planning a long run today and got rained out all weekend. I have an indoor track at the park district that I could drive to and use but I just don't get into indoor running and end up bored and ending early.
I was just on etsy heart-ing a lot of Belle stuff to get ideas from and I'm pretty sure I hearted one from that shop! There's so much cute stuff on etsy...I'll have to start narrowing it down and then find out who will do adult sizes since so much of what I end up liking is meant for kids costumes

I swear the hardest thing for me was cutting the all tulle the right length.
Also, the great thing is if you don't like it you can basically start over from scratch and start again.
That's what I've heard...I keep thinking I'm going to try it out once...maybe I'll see if I can whip one up for tinkerbell!

Oh, Hahahaha! Yeah, I could see how that would happen. Maybe I'll buy a little extra and let them keep themselves busy with it

I just made a no sew tutu yesterday for my daughter, it was super easy and quick, maybe two hours total including the cutting time. I bought stuff today to make another one for my older daughter.

Chicago 10K

I just signed up for the Chicago Perfect 10...the 10K not the 10 Mile! (lazy me..)...to get a chip time in case any Chicago folks want to meet up down there.

Or, if you have nothing better to do on a chilly November morning and want to cheer

And I'm done with my pair of 7's! I could return them still, but I got such a good price on them I might use 'em instead for strength training; they're way too PINK for wearing around town, but they're super comfy. They're just not working for running.

Hi again! Absolutely, it WILL be cooler and very likely less humid - we really only have much humidity in Feb. if it's actually raining. But even then, it's no comparison to Sept.

Yep, that sounds like me! If it's below 60, you'll find me completely covered and barely breaking a sweat. I ran a 4-miler last winter in tights, double shirts, a fleece jacket and a hat and never did warm up... the temp was 50.

But I stood up and decided o give them a chance. But I did not like that heel business!!
Honestly, the heel is the thing I dislike about 90% of shoe brands - any shoe on which the rubber angles out from the upper is immediately off my list. It's why I keep going back to Mizuno; even though their heels are high, they cut straight down, or even round under, the upper, so the're not that lip sticking out, aiming to trip me when I transition form run to walk.

I found my Princess outfit! I was totally anti-skirt after my experience at the TOT (it drove me NUTS! Kept twisting around, bunching under my Spibelt, and the sequins brushing against my hands were annoying), but Target had girls' lace and tulle skirts on clearance - a little poof, soft lace and a color to match a shirt I already have! Every once in a while it pays to be short and built like a 10-year-old boy, I guess.



Best part? The skirt was $6 using my Target Visa. So if it annoys me, I'll have NO problem tossing it on the side of the course!
