Seriously! When is it going to be here?!
Last week, Anne and I had a girls' day out with L to do some shopping. I stocked up on some new spring essentials. Our very successful shopping trip included me walking away with 3 maxi dresses (that the sales girl told me are very hot right now), 2 statement necklaces (also touted by said sales girl to be "on trend"), some sunglasses, a pair of shorts, a skirt, a few (okay, like 6) shirts, and a pair of cropped pants. Success. And...I discovered that I am consistently wearing a size smaller than my last shopping excursion this winter. Yay! At first, I totally thought it was vanity sizing, but 4 different stores don't lie.

I'm the jerk mom that turned on the light to take a selfie.
What you can see is that I still have not cleaned the mirror.
I'm busy. And I hate cleaning.
A few days later, we headed to California for a little spring vacay. I got to wear a few of my new pieces. See?

Shirt from Banana Republic covered by an oldie-but-goodie Target cardigan
Sneakers because it's Disneyland and that's a lot of walking

I just love this picture with my granola eating L

God I love Target cardigans
Hurry up spring! I have more new things that I want to wear. And I want to continue running outside. That's right. Continue. Time has not slowed down, and this half marathon is looming 10 weeks in the future. Looming. Darkly. Well, darkly when I have to train on the dread mill. Today I ran outside. It was cold and windy, and I don't love that, but it did feel good. Really good.
What are you looking forward to this spring?
