Hodgepodge

I have some random stuff to share today:

  • Halloween. So yeah, it's TODAY. And this morning I thought to myself, "well, self, you better figure out what the hiz-ell you're gonna wear today. In my closet I have the following items (don't ask why): Devil horns, angel wings, skimpy 60s outfit (but not boots), black pleather shiny pants, 70s shirt (but no pants), cowboy hats, A Sari (but I don't know how to put it on- very confusing), pink wig, colored boa and a pink ladies jacket. Basically - a bunch of crap but nothing that will create a full outfit. So I am just going to be a school girl. I KNOW - totally cliche and stupid - but it's easy and I don't have to buy anything. And I have a feeling we are only going to go out for an hour or so because the Captain has to ship out early tomorrow.

  • Running. I went for a nice 5-er this morning and totally loved it. Since the marathon I have been inconsistent and just trying to get out there. I gave myself until November 1 to be a slacker. After the run this morning, I decided that I'm totally ready to get out there again.

  • Yoga. What? I still haven't been back to Bikram. I miss it like crazy on so many levels. I have been hesitant because my rib/back thing is still wacky. I know I will push myself in yoga and possibly make it worse. My doc wants me to get ex-rays, but I've been lazy about that too. Maybe I will try this weekend if my friend Dr. Dev talks me into it. I guess I should commit to going next week and just get it back into my routine.

So, that's all I have for ya today.

What about angel wings with a white tank/skirt? Is that too boring? (And, you can throw on your pink boa??) Anyway, nothing wrong with a school girl. You got more options than me, that's for sure!

Great job going out on you 5 miler! It just took you a little while to get back into the swing of things. :-)

Happy Halloween to you and the Captain!

Nice job on completing the 5 miler.. I got up this morning and it was raining at my house! With a little bit of a cold I didn't want to go out and get even more sick.

Have a good Halloween... :) I'm jealous your so close to my old scene in Newport!

Better than my options. My friend Stacie and I were talking about going just dressed normal with a cup full of tootsie rolls.

We'll be "two girls, one cup"

Ha.

Need your help picking 300 words out - hop over to my site if you get a min.

angel wings & devil horns are always a good combo - especially with some sexy red/white club wear - which I'm sure you have!

YAY! for your 5-miler this morning. I am so looking forward to getting my mileage up again.

I'm hitting Bikram tomorrow - but if you go, be careful! Ribs are important.

Heather said...

I'm so jealous/excited for you that you're back out there with the running.

And happy you and the Capn are together. :)

I think the last time I dressed up was like 10 or more years ago. I was a biker chick. Fake tattoos on my face and all that. I hope you have fun tonight!

Your closet sounds like the land of misfit toys but is instead the land of misfit Halloween costumes.

Michelle J said...

YAY for 5 milers!!!

I need to start picking up my mileage!! Any advice girlie??

Amanda said...

Let's be honest coming up with outfits straight from the closet...we all do it...how do you think I came up with a gold dress and a kids shovel..gold digger.

I hope I have enough kids to get rid of this candy!

Your closet sounds fun! Enjoy the school girl halloween! Glad the run went well - when you have a really good one, it's super motivating!

Laurel said...

Why not Frenchy from Grease? Is that why you have the pink wig and Pink Ladies jacket to begin with?

Glad to hear you had a good run. Have fun tonight.

I can't seem to find a good bikram place in PDX, so I think I'm going to try "power vinyasa" - have you done that? They heat the room to 95*, but I don't know what the routine is. I like Bikram because it is soo routine, same thing every time. If you're ever in the Bay Area go to Funky Door Yoga (the one in Berkeley). It is the best!

X-Country2 said...

A real Sari?! That's awesome. :o)

M*J*C said...

I think you should wear a little sailor outfit for the captain....if I would have known I could have sent you one...for reals!

Alisa said...

Haha...wanna know what I did last night??? Downed a bottle of wine and sat on the couch watching movies. Was supposed to go to Bikram this morning...sooooooo did not happen!

Hope you and Captain had fun!

Hope you had a great Halloween!

Halloween costume photo?

You totally should have just worn ALL of those things. Pile 'em all on top of each other. Including multiple cowboy hats plus the devil horns. Hehe. That would have been so funny:)
