Favorite Things!

Get excited! I'm the next Oprah.

I had originally wanted to do this on Friday, but then decided to wait until this week because:

Today is my 8th wedding anniversary! It doesn't seem possible. I don't feel old enough to have been married for 8 years. 

So in honor of that, I present the very first ever (here) FAVORITE THINGS! 

 None of y'all are getting cars. Sorry. 
 Though the giveaway is pretty awesome.

Obligatory first favorite:*
The husband. He is literally the best person I know. We've been together almost 11 years and I still have big, shmoopy, puppy love for him. He's pretty awesome. 

 Seriously. We look like 17 here.

This is my favorite one b/c we are just cracking each other up about how weird it was to be married.
*I promise no sappy declarations of love each time. 
2.) Mizuno Wave Riders 13 
The first shoe that doesn't hurt me when I trot along. I have weak ankles that want to roll out vs normal ankles that roll in (pronate.) M says physiologically this makes no sense b/c the ligaments on the outside of your ankle are much stronger. Yet another way my body defies medicine. 
I have been wearing these non-stop since 2007. Now, sadly, this is D-lish 2. The first one doesn't have that little silver tab and look a little 'dressier'. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the upper is leather and super soft. When I bought them the first time they were like $20. The bottom is like this pillowy soft bed that actually has arch support (nonexistent in flops, unfortunately) and then molds to your feet. For you, my lovely readers, I did the hardship of purchasing the updates since you can't buy the old ones anymore (sob!) I do this for you. I can report that they are just as soft and awesome as the original. You are welcome. 
 You know that a flop has to be magical and wonderful for me to pay $30 for flip-flops. 

I have these in so many colors. It does dry very fast AND has this wide/fat brush that makes it so much easier to do your nails. Though I pretty much exclusively use it on my toes. 
Cheap, fast, easy.

My life's motto. 

5. Rhapsody/I-tunes 

Not much to say here. I could not work out without music! I actually use Rhapsody b/c it is like $15/month and has unlimited song downloads. 

Here in AL it gets very hot, very early. It is 88 degrees outside right now! I love my little Camelbak holder b/c it insulates and gives me something to hold onto. Usually when I run outside I run loops so that I don't get too far away from my water (and car, just in case I hurt myself. Which, let's be honest, happens frequently.) I don't really run long distances such that I need to carry water on me, but this is a good compromise.

 Onto the fun stuff! 

Since it is my anniversary, I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway! 
Wait, that's backwards. Y'all should send me presents. 
I'm giving away:
*Camelbak bottle with holder
*Sally Hansen nail polish
*$25 Itunes or Rhapsody gift card.
Which ever you prefer.

ugh could I be worse at technology, I don't think so. I just typed up this comment, went to post it, saw there was a typo and somehow erased the whole thing, I rule. Anyway here is roughly what it said: I don't have Twitter on account of I just don't, so I cannot tweet about this, and I already follow you, but all of that is a-OK because I just came in to comment because I wanted to, TRUE BLOG FRIENDSHIP RIGHT HERE. And what I wanted to say was that I have the exact opposite feelings about the Fast-Dry nail polish. That brush just KILLS me dead, I get polish all over my fingertips and they look neon and ridiculous. I am super impressed that you can use it successfully! I should try it on my toenails, I bet it would be easier that way. Also your wedding pics are ADORABLE and I want that bouquet of peonies on my desk right now. I think I successfully recreated my comment!!
