Boy you got my heartbeat runnin' away

Have you noticed sometimes lately I add a purse? It distracts my arm! Dude why didn't I think of this before. Less awkward turtles posing. (notice I said LESS. It still is awkward even after 5 years)

So as you can see I went with a black pair of sneakers yesterday. No one guessed right! They were the most comfortable and I had this exact style in blue suede in high school. They are one of their older styles and the one most associated with the brand.

I have to say I feel a little Sporty Spice. Not in a good way. Hillary = not sporty. They gave me a free backpack and last night I met up with Dave and we were walking home and he kept looking at me. Then he realized between the backpack, sneakers and french braid he said I didn't look like myself. I just need to work on ways to make them more ME.

How is your week shaping up?
I am ready for this weekend. Saturday we are going to a Mike Doughty concert with Dave's sister. Sunday we are supposed to get a hurricane. An earthquake yesterday and a hurricane in the same week? Am I in the twilight zone? This stuff DOES NOT happen in New England often. A tornado earlier this year too. Dude who ever is pissing off the gods KNOCK IT OFF. Don't make me sic Waffle on you. She has a punching fist.

She is ferocious.

The shoes you got are a good choice, too. I didn't really like the other black ones, they were too aerodynamic looking or something, lol.

Hope the icky weather holds off until Sunday, I heard we might get pre-hurricane weather on Saturday, though. Saturday is Matt's birthday and even though we're doing dinner Friday, I wanted to give him his presents Saturday night.

I really like the floral with the black. It's edgy and sweet at the same time. I usually find it pretty hard to find that balance.

Love that jacket! It's a great piece for a pop of color and pattern. Congrats on the new shoes. None of us guessed right! Oh well, I think they're cool and retro looking.

Sometimes you just gotta let yourself put a spin on stuff. Maybe you don't define yourself as sporty, but there can be a side of Hillary that is a little bit.

My week is so very slow. Hope you're staying safe out there!

ha the only sports I ever did like were dangerous. Hockey and skiing. I did both well when I was younger. Chasing people with sticks with something strapped to your feet? Awesome!

barrelling down a hill with something strapped to your feet? also awesome.

I haven't skiied in 18 years? Sometime in highschool was the last time.

You are braid-tastic this week. My sister just moved to New Hampshire a couple of weeks ago from Texas. I hope she isn't what is making the East Coast angry. Waffle looks like she would be good to have around in a bar fight :).

The print on that jacket is amazing! I love it! And I love the sporty spice reference. I tried watching Spice World on Netflix the other day, but it didn't work. Probably for the best!
