you can't emphasize everything.

unrelated musings & happenings from my week

Thinking I was meant to be a runner, wishing my joints agreed with my mind... hoping my new ugly running shoes will help.

Feeling under the weather, wondering if my new approach to eating sugar again here-and-there has anything to do with that, and missing the strong immune system I had for the past 4.5 months.

Sleeping in until the sunlight through the windows wakes me up, lying in bed curled up next to my husband, just being there together listening to music before the day begins. Deciding that's what all Saturday mornings should be like.

Spending evenings with good friends and a delicious dinner (thanks for cooking, Rome!), talking about where our food comes from, and remembering I still need to read this book.

Now: resting after a busy week.


  1. I feel that way about soda pop. I stopped drinking it in high school, so if I have it occasionally I definitely feel it.

    It's just a good reminder that treating my body right has its benefits.

  2. hi! I agree, I think we would be fast friends if were in the same place! sigh. it's so hard to find people that are like you sometimes! we haven't had luck yet but we are hoping. have you read omnivore's dilemma? also a great read by the same author. cheers!

  3. ugly running shoes have given me the will to live again. i hope they do the same for you.

    on a side note, casey anne just asked me to buy her a different deodorant. when i asked why, she replied, "because I like the way this one looks better."

    is it possible she is related to us?

  4. love your shirt, where is it from (if you don't mind me asking) ?

  5. i love saturday mornings cuddling with the husband.

    and i'm impressed that you gave up sugar. that's intense. wish i could do that!

  6. i love the photos. you take such great pics.

  7. oh! That was kiely, not Rich! :)

  8. Definitely read that book. I got through it in about 2 days. That's AMAZING for me. It'll definitely open your mind.

    Sugar has magical powers, doesn't it? I am in the same boat as just makes me feel "off." Not saying I don't eat sugar, but in general, I go by 'less is more.'

    Great t-shirt, btw.

  9. you are meant to be a runner. joints are just so stupid sometimes.

  10. Treat your body right.

    And also? Please share where you found that bag! LOVE it. Please, please, pretty please?


  11. the tee is from urban outfitters.

    the bag is michael kors... thrifted for only $5. (yeah, i know!)

  12. Shhh, don't tell anyone I'm blogging and my room isn't clean. :)

    Sorry you're feeling sick and sorry I didn't even offer dinner to you when you called. It may have been b/c all we had was green beans, carrots, quinoa and watermelon. And you don't like watermelon, remember?

  13. I've heard good things about that book and think it must be similar to The Stupid Diet book that Craig's dad gave to all of us. It is really fascinating and totally changed the way I eat and was really enlightening. Here's a blog that discusses it a little:
    It's not so much about going on a diet as it is educating you to live a healthier lifestyle. Here's the website (which is a little obnoxious looking) but I LOVED this book. Just thought I'd share!

  14. Just thought I'd share - your post a couple days ago inspired me to order the Emily Post cookbook :) I love it! Thanks.

  15. I LOVE that bag!! What great style you have my dear!

    lovely little post too!

    still on for dinner tomorrow night?

    I enjoy your every post a tiny bit more than the one before.

  17. I tried to be a didn't quite work out for me:(

  18. i wish i was a runner. but every time i try, my knees tell my brain to tell my heart to stop wanting to be a runner. maybe in the next life...

  19. Love this post.

    I'm curled up on the sofa with my laptop and magazines catching up on blogs and things I enjoy. Life has been so busy lately and I've enjoyed my down time this morning.

    The only thing that could make this Saturday morning better is if my husband wasn't at work.

  20. hello, i am brand new to your blog and i adore it. my fabulous friend jess introduced me.
    and you are darling. and i love your pics. i really really love your purse!! the brown one. i have been searching for one just like it. mind me asking where you found such a beauty??? thanks!

    What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.It's what we know for sure that just ain't so fire fall gold, at twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment firefall gold, fear not that the life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning fire fall gold.

    Would you take the pen in hand, plunge right in and just do it, struggling to keep up with the twists and turns of the torrents of words that take you where they take you Buy D3 Gold? Would your plans be so extensive that you never even got to the writing Cheap D3 Gold? But if you do decide to use it, what would you do with it? How would you play the game D3 Gold Sale?
