Ashley's Back to School Shopping Spree


Ashley looked so great in these tees by Pure Body Gap



Matchstick jeans from Jcrew


Shorts from Buckle-BKE brand
She got herself these great Lucky Charlie Baby boot jeans and they are becoming my favorite as well.


Plus some kitchen stuff from Target for her new place.








Grandpa got her the new Ipad and we got her this cool pen you use to write notes on it-


My favorite surprise for her as she moved into her new studio apartment was having Safeway delivering groceries so she would have a pantry and refrigerator full of good eats.

A Contract of One's Own


There was a great article by Aimmee Bender in Oprah's July edition of her magazine about making a contract with yourself about something you want to commit too. In the article the author committed to two hours of writing a day.  She had rules and vacation days built into her contract. At the end of four months of fulfilling her contract she gave herself a prize.  I love the idea of this kind of structure and accountability.  So, I came up with My Running Contract.  It's a simple mile a day for the rest of the summer. If I miss a day I make it up. I can run longer but not shorter.  My foot doesn't hurt bad enough to use it as an excuse. It only takes 9 minutes so time can't be an excuse either. My reward-a thinner and fitter me but also I'm going to come up with something special:) It's time.
