This week marks week #3 of my 1/2 marathon training! I have been trying to consistently run 3-4 times a week along with ballet & conditioning too! Because I've been running more I needed some new shoes...

My dad found these Asics on sale at Dick's! After getting shin splints from cross country I finally discovered the right running shoes for me and I've been loyal to Asics ever since! Can't wait to break them in this weekend!

Somewhere in my mess of a life is my long-lost Ipod Shuffle...it disappeared months ago so I promised myself I would buy myself this new Ipod Shuffle if I stuck with my running routine! For only $59 it holds 2G of music! I still have 3 weeks to go though...so we'll see!

Now I just need this Nike hot pink running top to go with my new shoes and workout routine!

The Ballerina Project

[photo cred: Dane Shitagi]

Amelia just introduced me to this Facebook group called "The Ballerina Project" and I am in love with it. Made up of photos taken by Dane Shitagi it captures ballerinas dancing in urban settings (mostly NYC) - the dancers are sooo beautiful! I could look at the photos for hours and the best part is that there are prints for sale! This picture posted it my personal fave and I will be adding this print to the Christmas list this year!

Father's Day & Shopping

So last weekend I went home to Pine Mountain for a visit for Father's Day! Having Friday to relax, Caroline and I drove over to West Point - it's like a block from Alabama - to shoe shop! There is a random shoe outlet there with lightly used shoes from photo shoots and what not all priced for under $20! I had some good finds!

What I consider to be the most perfect shoes in the world (Caroline did not agree). I already have an outfit planned around them!

Nine West gladiator sandals! I've already worn them for an entire day - they're so comfy!

These Coach loafers from many seasons ago - still cute! I've wanted some loafers ever since Jill got some JCrew ones! Also found some pretty silver Kenneth Cole pumps for Jennie to wear in the wedding she will be in next month!

Sunday we went to visit Pappy who has a new little kitten! She is so adorable and fluffy!

Found this Liberty of London robe on the Target clearance rack! I'm wearing it right now just to feel like Blair...

I had originally wanted to order a beach cover up from Victoria's Secret for the summer until I found this one at TJMaxx!

Although summer has not officially begun, school is out and the summer heat is here. With a few changes going on in my life I have decided to devote more time to blogging my thoughts and ideas and reading others more often for inspiration! Spring semester finished up in early May and not much has been going on in Athens - but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy! Between work, summer class and hanging out with friends I've been shopping (of course!) and trying to get back into shape. This October Athens will be hosting their first annual 1/2 Marathon! I am hoping to complete it with a little inspiration from friends and family. Along with getting back into running Amelia and I have been sneaking into the dance building for a little ballet time - I am sewing my pointe shoes soon to get back on my toes! Over the past few weeks I have really contemplated what makes me happy in life and am trying to throw myself into that fully - I am so thankful for the life I live - my wonderful sweet roomate Jill, my loving family, a supportive and inspiring circle of friends, and the opportunity to attend a great university - GO DAWGS! More posts later this week on my fun finds from the weekend!
