|C & I started today off with a 6 mile run around the penninsula and by the harbor in downtown Charleston.|
|I love runs downtown, they remind me how pretty my town is - spoiled!|
|Then we went to the farmers' market in Marion Square which happens every Sat from 8-3.|
It's amazing. If you are ever in town check it out!
|I picked up fresh pasta, peaches, plums, blueberries, and these blackberries. |
Look at how huge they are!
|I wanted some of the gorgeous flowers too. |
However, I knew C & I still had lots of walking and shopping and they wouldn't fit in my farmers' market bag as well.
|Then we walked through all the art booths that happened to be in the square from Spoleto weekend.|
|Next, we headed down King Street (great shopping) to the brand new Lululemon which opened this weekend.|
|I had heard great things about their clothes, but never had the chance to try them on before. |
The store was great, tons of cute stuff.
I had to restrain myself a bit so I didn't take everything into the dressing room.
|On top of the great clothes I also saw this manifesto printed all over and I really like everything it says.|
Plus the salespeople were too nice.
One girl talked to C the whole time while I tried stuff on.
|Then we stopped by Taziki's for a quick, fresh, and decently healthy lunch.|
I got the Greek salad gyro.
It had delicious grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, roasted red pepper, feta, and a little bit of taziki sauce.
|Then I went with C to Croghan's Jewelry Box because she had won a $200 gift card.|
They had tons of gorgeous rings and the saleslady who helped us was really nice.
However, it was a totally upscale too ritzy place (we had to ring a doorbell and be buzzed in).
They really didn't have many options for C's $200 gift card.
I thought they might have lots of plain silver rings or earrings, but that was not the case and lots of what they did have for under $200 was not her style.
She looked for a really long time and just could not find anything except this $50 pair of earrings.
|She wasn't sure about them at first, but I thought they were amazing and convinced her to get them.|
Since she couldn't find lots of other stuff she liked, and they had two pairs, she got me a pair too.
Not what I was going for when I kept telling her to get them, but so sweet and amazingly thoughtful of her!
I am wearing them to a Fitz and the Tantrums concert with my mom tonight.
|After that super busy morning/afternoon it was nap time and then time to cook.|
I used my two balls of farmers' market pasta some fresh green beans and tomatoes, a can of mushrooms I had, and 1 delicious chicken andouille sausage (thank you Costco)...
|and it made all this. Woohoo! Leftovers.|
Guess I know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow.
|P.S.- Last night I had dinner at my parents house since I hadn't seen them all week and we try to do family dinner weekly.|
|Mom did a wonderful job keeping it pretty healthy.|
|Then post crab legs she kicked my butt at board games.|
Day 12 = 1 mile run (rest day, plus 2 mile dog walk)
Day 13 = 6 mile run
Total Miles Run = 49.5 miles
What running clothes/gear can you not live without?
