IT IS SUMMER IN THE MIDWEST!
It was in the 80s this weekend- and with the exception of a few rain showers- it was completely perfect.
Let's rewind a little. So I've started to get back into running...not that I was ever really talented at it. Evidently I'm 25 going on 80 because my knees are a load of crap if I run more than a mile or two. Michael finally convinced me to get some new shoes with more support & comfort- and Asics were the only option! My friend Dani recently got these- and after failing searching high and low for a cooler pair, I copied the gal and got them too. Kind of awesome, right??
It took me about 4 wearings to break them in, but now that they're good to go I am SO happy with the decision to invest in a quality pair of shoes. They not only help my feet, but me knees too! I highly, HIGHLY recommend them. And no, Asics isn't paying for this post ;)
I'm not the only one with cool neon shoes in this household- Michael's running and basketball shoes are SUPER bright too!
Speaking of bright, now that summer is here I've finally ditched the dark clothes and reached for the sunny hues. Oh, and I wear my J.Crew factory crystal necklace all. the. time. Not quite sure why I put off getting it for so long! Also- am I the only one who owns gingham shirts in about every color?

The nice weather means it's yard game season! Thank goodness Dani & her husband have a sweet backyard that lends itself to games like Beersbie!
We got to spend time with friends from college this weekend, including brunch at a little townie restaurant right on a lake. Any weekend that includes dock time is good in my book.
