1. New shoes! As part of being an Altra Ambassador I am lucky to recieve to pairs of Altra shoes.. of my choice! You can't believe what a hard decision this was! I quickly had it narrowed down to 5 pairs of shoes. Torins, Olympus, Paradigm, Lone Peaks and and One. Ultimately I went withe the Lone Peaks with the Neoshell in the black and mint ( a color my daughter is in love with) and the Olympus in the shitake and coral (a color my daughter did not like) (but I do and I win)
I picked the Lone Peaks because I have been wanting to try those out for a long time and they have the NeoShell that keeps your feet warm and dry.. and it's winter and will get super slushy here as soon as things start to warm up a little
I picked the Olympus because I have two older pairs and LOVE them and really wanted to try the newer model. and a little bit I just really liked the color.
2. I was looking at pictures last night and find that here in the depths of winter times like this (warm times, green times wearing shorts times) feel very far away
3. I have warned my kids multiple times about leaving things around the house that our beagle puppy can chew on as he chews on everything... although he is getting better. So when my son came to me the other day as said "Mom, remember how you told us that we shouldn't leave things laying around we didn't want Roader to chew on? and how it would be our own fault if he did?" I knew right away that I had been the one to leave something out that Roader got too. Sure enough, my vacuum cord was pulverized by little beagle teeth.
