Lululemon Lust & A New Playlist

September 2, 2011 · 53 comments

Look who is celebrating Friday by finally figured out how to (almost) successfully enhance her (now natural?) waves with her straightener.



Alright, it’s not awesome, but I was running out of time. Is it bad I don’t put much effort into my working look?

Speaking of running out of time, I need to establish a command for Chloe that means “Hurry the crap up. Mom’s late.” It always seems to be the times I’m in a big hurry she thinks it’s cool to dawdle around the backyard instead of pottying.

I’m sure my neighbors enjoy my frantic “NO. GO POOPIES.” squeals at 7 a.m.

You’ll be able to find my hydrating all day in preparation for my 20 miler tomorrow. Anastasia is coming to town (YAAAAAAAY!), and we’re psyched to tackle our new PDR together.

And I already need new running shoes. I calculated the miles I’ve run, and I’m about to break 500. I wish I was ballsy enough to try the New Balance Minimus, but I think I need to stick with what I’m used to for the second half of marathon training (YES.. we’re halfway there!).

I’m praying to the Gods of Asics I can find some cuter ones than my current pair I hate.

In honor of the long run I’ll be doing tomorrow, I’m leaving you with one of my most favorite new playlists I’ve had in a while. Enjoy (and go download the new Matt Nathanson album… this is his best one yet, and I’m completely obsessed).

I’ve got homeboy Gavin’s new album on preorder, too. I’m psyched.

After work today, Jamie and I will be skipping off to the gym for a Lululemon trunk show. Somebody better clothesline me at the door, ’cause I have a feeling I may go all banana sandwich with the fantastic workout gear.

Dear Dad, consider yourself warned. Mom, if someone calls you blubbering incoherently about “no more funds” and “really cute running leggings” or “Jamie made me do it,” it may or may not be your youngest daughter.

This is me with Lululemon gear.

This is me without Lulumeon gear.

See? I’m bald save for some blonde bangs and strange brown whispies. That’s how tragic life would be without some great new workout gear.

My new favorite running song is Beyonce: Love on Top! It’s so catchy and has a great beat.

I visit the Lulu website way too much! Unfortunately being in grad school = cheap workout clothes. I do have one lulu top that I LOVE!! As soon as I get a real job, I will be purchasing more. Until then I’ll just lust after them. 🙂

Gahh good luck on your TWENTY MILE run tomorrow, you crazy lady! 🙂 You’ll be proud of me – this morning I went to get on the treadmill and after a mile it sucked and a wanted to off myself. So I went home, ate breakfast and went back two hours later to try again! Three miles in under 30 minutes 🙂

Such a tragedy to be bald in ugly work out gear. I am lusting over all things lululemon right now. I am also awaiting the day my paycheck grows 10fold so I can afford to buy it all!!

1. You NEED to get a pair of minimus as soon as possible (even if u have to wait until after the marathon). They will change your life.

2. I’m obsessed with Matt nathansons new cd too. I listen to it over and over and over again

3. Gahh lululemon trunk show? Id die!

Happy weekend- good luck w 20 miles!

Jeallloous of this lululemon sale you speak of. I love the photos as always!
My family always just taught my dog “hurry up” means “effing pee already!!!!!”. I would also try tactics such as opening the door, calling her, and when she won’t come in, closing it and hiding so she thinks I’m ignoring her 😛 oh dear, what dogs do to us!

Good luck on the 20 miler!!! Once you hit that distance all other distances just seem so damn short…which is probably why I don’t get any satisfaction at all by running half marathons anymore. Once you do the marathon, you’re addicted!

I just went to “Lululemon” for the first time yesterday, and I was so overwhelmed! I went in to the store planning to buy some things, but I didn’t even know where to start! I think next time, I need to take a “Lululemon pro” with me! 😉
