Rain is painful

I was trying to get a picture of the dogs last night. Amanda had food, so Rocco was buttering her up with his "look how cuuuute I am" look.

"I'm sorry for throwing up on the rug again last night."

And now, for the one I like to call Pippi's self portrait.

Sums her up perfectly.

I get a little annoyed because when I'm home, she just wants to jump and paw and lick and annoy the crap out of me. And then, when Amanda sits down?

So annoyingly unfair.

This week is totally killing my mojo. I don't know if it's the weather or the fact that I need more sleep, or a vacation...perhaps all of the above.

Yesterday I was supposed to run. I did not run. I felt horrible, and I've decided to take the whole, "listen to your body" thing a bit more seriously since the news of my broken ears. (Yes, I know they're not actually broken). I have a sneaking suspicion that humid, rainy weather makes it worse since I always get headaches on dreary days. I guess that would make sense if the part that's "broken" is the thingie that regulates pressure in your head.

Anyhow, today is spin class, which I am very much looking forward to. I'm supposed to run again tomorrow, but if I'm still feeling awful I'm not going to beat myself up over not doing it. Saturday's weather outlook is much happier: 72 and sunny. Yes please! Perfect for tackling seven miles of hills!

I know some of you are running races this month. You just may need to rock a Halloween-themed headband. I've got some in the shop!

Also, I'm kind of psyched I think I finally discovered the secret to taking decent pictures for displaying items. Don't these look much cleaner and crisper?


  1. Oooh, I love the new pictures! So pretty :)

    Peanut always sucks up to my husband and he doesn't even like her. If I try to get her to cuddle, she acts like I have leprosy or something. Contrary dog.

  2. Pippi licking you and annoying the crap out of you is because she loves you the MOST! You win. :)

    Definitely take it easy. Nobody wins when you collapse with the spins on the side of the road.

  3. the pictures look good! what's different - the white background? lighting? I love Pippi's human-sit.

  4. I'm guessing macro button?

    Pippi does that because Amanda is bribing her to love her. At least you can rest assured that the internet likes you better than Amanda and will not fall for her table scraps.

  5. I love the new pics! And the Halloween design. So cute! Good job listening to your body - that's an important part of training!

  6. andddddddd I just ordered from your etsy shop :)

  7. Aww, what a cute pup. That means she loves you! Those headbands are awesome, how cool!
