I cannot even tell you which I'm more excited for. We got the Lilly Pulitzer Resort 2011 linebook in yesterday and I spent a SOLID three hours flipping through. Every single delivery is full of GORGEOUS pieces, from dresses to Murfee scarves to wedges! the prints are just beautiful - so many aquas and turquoises, and, of course...pink! i can't wait until the first shipment comes in...fall, i'm so over you and it's only halfway through September!
And now, onto the Disney Princess Half Marathon...
competition begins in: 163 days, 12 hours and 20 minutes. I, personally, have only ever completed a 5k, and that was on a treadmill, during deployment. Regardless, I think that I can do this, especially with Trip leaving for Pakistan for a year and my work schedule being less taxing than it used to be. therefore, i can be...this:

So using my trusty 'how to run a half-marathon' guide from Self magazine, I've started my 'training'. Fortunately, it starts with 'how to run a 5k', which, frankly, is just what I need. The good thing is that there's all sorts of different work outs - some days, it's strength training, some days, it's a Speed 1 workout (warm up for a mile, sprint half a mile, walk half a mile, sprint half a mile, cool down half a mile), and some days, it's my favorite: rest!

on an entirely more boring and unrelated note, i haven't lost any weight and in fact, gained two pounds because of Trip and I's Cabo vacation. Fabulous. Hopefully this training will help that out, because Lord knows that my coming to terms with the fact that I am really really loving this whole eating meat while sober and in front of people thing, combined with the fact that Trip has decided (get this) he is going to eat everything he may possibly miss while he is in Pakistan, I have had wayyy too much access to delicious food.
I'm not going to post my weight, but suffice it to say that I'm getting kind of close to not being able to ride my dream water vehicle anymore:

The closest I will probably get to owning a jet-ski, this puppy maxes out at 155 pounds, but at only $199, it's a reasonable investment for a San Diego resident, concur?
speaking of reasonable investments, I've finally learned to accept the fact that there is no employee discount for this desirable land-transporter:

Looks like it's a good thing I'm working on my running, since I won't be able to get around any other way!
