Outlet Shopping

So yesterday the dude and I went to the outlet mall.  Originally we had some plans to head to a college football game, but we had friends out of town or taking it easy this weekend, so we followed suit.  I haven't been real hard-core shopping in probably a few years.  I tend to buy 1 or 2 things here or there, but never in bulk-ish.  We both seriously made out on this trip though.

Here's what he had:
Banana Republic: A nice heavy coat and a puffy vest
Brooks Bros:  Sweater ($18-one of the best deals of the day)
Gap:  Sweater and Jeans
DSW: 2 pairs of dress shoes

And what I had:
BR: 2 tanks, a sweater, and 2 blouses
Gap: 2 sweaters
Loft: a sweater
Express: pair of jeans

There's possibly a few things that I forgot, but I paid under $150 for all of my goodies.  That's absurd pricing. I know one of my blouses from BR was like, $5.  I feel so good and am in sweater heaven.

Our closet is exploding though.  I guess that's one major thing to deal with when combining apartments.  Sharing.  I'm bad at it.

Army 10 Miler Finisher

So another year, another (my second!) Army 10-Miler.  I'm so proud to say that Kathleen and I took 10 minutes off our last 10-Miler time!  I'm not a super fast runner, and I do take walking breaks, but I'm just really happy with that time.  It makes me feel a bit more confident especially since I really did no training more than running like, 3 miles at a time, and only for the last few weeks.  I think this will make the 1/2 marathon in January a bit more easy.

And in 3 weeks, I just have to run 6 miles for a 10K, my first ever 10K.  I think that's backwards though, aren't you supposed to start with the small distances?  Oops.

Yay running!

Fall Blog Swap

I mentioned that I signed up for a Fall Blog Swap last week.  The swap was set up by Caroline from Simply Smithwick, Mateya from The Best is Yet to Come and Molly at The Fuschia News.

Last week, I sent my goodies to Rebecca from Southern Charm, and here's what I got in return:



Essie Nail Polish in Power Clutch
Pumpkin Spice Candle
Starbucks Gift Card

I've already tried the nail polish.  It's an awesome color.  Sometimes it looks like grey clay, sometimes like dark green.  And I put some awesome sparkles on it to celebrate the bday week.

Thanks Rebecca!!

I love Fall.
