Running, Wedding Planning and Another Review…

I’d venture to say I kind of suck at this whole blogging thing… Oh well, it’s not my job so I’m going to do it as I please!

Wedding stuff:

Last night we picked out Tim’s tux, the groomsmen tux and my dad’s tux colors! I am very happy with the choices.

This Sunday we’re cake tasting – I. Can. Not. Wait.

We get to pick 4 cake/filling/topping flavors. The combos we came up with are:

  1. Snickerdoodle with cannoli filling and vanilla butter cream
  2. Chocolate with salted caramel filling and chocolate butter cream
    3. White cake with lemon and raspberry cream cheese and vanilla butter cream
    4. Coconut with cinnamon and sugar buttercream and vanilla butter cream

Again… Can. Not. Wait. Eeks!

Running stuff:

I almost ran 20 miles last week. That’s quite an accomplishment for me. I ran a 10k route with my friend to test our abilities to run a local race in March. It’s quite hilly and we wanted to see if we would survive. We did, we walked all the hills and ran the flats and the downhill portions. Our time was pretty slow, but we weren’t really aiming for much other than just finishing. We’re now contemplating doing the half marathon version (more hills) instead.

On top of that contemplation we’re already registered for the 10k San Diego Mermaid Race… and we’re thinking of trying the half instead. It’s a flat course but we’ll have a double stroller with her kids; not sure how well that will go… It’s up in the air at this point.  Our plan is to try doing 8 miles this weekend with the stroller on flat ground, switching off pushing it every mile. I think that will be our decision maker.

And a Review:

NYC Expert Last #SugarPlum Lip Color:  $1.99


I’ll be honest. I haven’t been using this product much. But it’s NOT because I don’t like it, I actually love it! I’m just more of a gloss girl than a lipstick girl. I do carry it with me and when I do want a little pop of color I’ll slather some on.

It goes on very very silky smooth and has an EXCELENT sweet taste (just like the name of the color – sugar plum). That was a nice surprise because lipstick taste is not one I like much.

I gave this product a 5/5 on Influenster.com and I may just look into other colors they offer, I think a really light pink or nude color would be great for me!
