Happy Fourth of July!!!

by Elizabeth on July 4, 2013

I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating our freedom with family and friends!

I went a little crazy yesterday at Luke’s Locker. A new GPS watch:


And new shoosies:

I went for a quick 3 mile run in the afternoon to test them both out (they work!) and I think Noah was jealous he didn’t get new shoes. He threw both of his sandals out of the stroller and came home shoeless.

I made this cake and luckily our neighbors were hanging out in the cul-de-sac last night and I didn’t have to eat it all alone. It was a marble cake with oreo pieces inside! The kiddos loved it.

First: Is that a Garmin Forerunner 10?! I need a new GPS running watch, and I’ve been looking at those. And I’m in LOVE with yours! What’s your favorite thing about it so far?

Shoes: Brooks? Pure Drifts? I’ve been thinking about maybe breaking away from Mizunos (only for my second pair though! I love my Wave Riders!) and I’ve heard nothing but great things about Brooks. Thoughts?

And your cake. Amazing. And Patriotic, so the calories CLEARLY don’t count ;)

What a fun day! You look just like me! I just bought the 10 and LOVE it! I went from super complex Garmin to the 10 and it makes a world of a difference! I also just bought the PureFlows in May and love them! They are a great shoe and so nice to run in!
