Nothing I could say would do justice to the lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary on Friday. I simply hope that change is on the horizon. It is scary to imagine we're living in a place where public spaces no longer feel safe.
Thanks to the weekend, I'm feeling almost 100%. Just to be safe, I stuck with indoor workouts to not make this chest congestion worse.
Saturday morning I did an easy 20 min of easy spinning on the trainer. It felt good to move the legs. And then it was off for a pedicure with mom at Bello Spa (so relaxing) and wedding dress shopping with mom, Stefanie and Lindsey.
We went to two shops and I tried on maybe 30 dresses in total. I didn't find any dresses that really wowed me so I thought I'd show you a few as none of them are close to being it.
Some I liked certain aspects of...
and others I didn't like much of anything.
Loved the detailing on the back of this one.
While I didn't find the dress, I do have a better idea of what style of dress I like, the fabric, color, length of train, etc. There are so many options. I'm honestly kind of relieved I didn't find one as I want to see what else is out there.
We also really appreciated the sales person at the second shop who was really nice, whereas the woman at the first shop was just pushy. It definitely makes or breaks the experience.
Thanks to the ladies for helping me! And thank you, Lindsey for snapping the photos.
It was definitely nice to have feedback as I was under the weather and it can be hard to tell if a dress actually looks good on you. And the dresses look totally different looking at the photos after the fact.
Sunday morning I went to hot yoga, which felt great on the body and the lungs. Poured sweat per the usual.
Oh, and look who's back to running...
Pete's getting ready for the Hagg Lake 25K trail race that I did last year. I'm opting to be a cheerleader this year (although I might regret it) and let him get muddy instead.
We went to the mall and Trader Joe's in the afternoon and it was obvious that Christmas is a week away - no parking spots to be found.
Dinner was perfect, satisfying and easy - TJ's garlic herb dough w/ caramelized onions, mushroom, sun dried tomatoes, spinach and goat cheese.
I hope you had a relaxing weekend. Tell me something about your weekend or workouts.
