|Hi everyone. Pippi here. I like to poop. And chew on my|
Nylabones. And eat and drink and poop some more.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled program :)
So, HI! How was your weekend? Mine started out with my first ever chilly, rainy run Saturday morning. I felt ok during the six miles, but as soon as I got home, I couldn't wait for the ten minutes to tick by with ice on my knee (which started hurting again. argh!) so that I could get in the shower. Oh and a marvelously warm shower it was. I was actually surprised by how comfortable I felt on the run even though it was pretty chilly out. When cars passed by me, I felt like a badass and hoped the people in the car said things like, "look at that crazy-in-the-rain runner" and "wow, that's dedication". You see, in my head, everyone's a fan of my work. Everyone.
(17 miles last week, kids! It's a personal weekly record. Wahoo!)
Amanda and I then ran some "fun" errands. One place we went was the running store, with the money I had in my "running money" jar. They didn't have the things I actually went in for (socks), but I did get these bad boys:
|I think I'm going to start wearing hats more |
often so I can look mysterious all the time.
|It was on sale. And it's purple. It was calling out|
My favorite part of the beanie is the "hair hole"
|It's impossible to take a picture with a wiggly puppy.|
We also went to this awesome store in Chapel Hill called A Southern Season. It's an amazing place where you can get things you "need"
|The most amazing thing ever invented.|
And things you never knew you needed
|I mean, who DOESN'T need tiny frog salt-and-pepper shakers |
After we showed Jeremy our purchases, I turned my back to make dinner, and this happened in literally .5 milliseconds.
She leaps like she's a freakin leopard (leopards leap, right?) and then ten minutes later, after I recovered from cracking up, I set her back on the ground and removed her spring.
On Sunday I tried to take her running. The plan was to do an easy 2-mile recovery run. I figured Pippi would be pulling me over. HA! She was trailing behind. She stopped to poop, smell things, and refused to move her legs faster than a fast walk. So much for the fun running partner.
And now I have something serious to discuss with you guys. So, while I was at my running store (Fleet Feet, in case you're curious), I got annoyed like I do every time, about the price of Sweaty Bands! Are you KIDDING me, $15? I really gotta make it big somehow with my headbands. Mine are clearly the best, as they are made with love. And sunshine. (And sell for $6!)
I'm thinking the first thing I need is a fun name for them. All I can come up with is "Emy Bands," but that's admittedly kinda lame, right? Or do we like it? Any ideas?
Oh, and while we're on the subject, I added two new headband designs and a new collar design today.
|There's also a piggie headband!|
Also, don't forget about the Create-your-own Halloween themes.
P.S. Two giveaways are coming and a little birdie told me the first one starts tomorrow!
