Finish This… #7: buying, stars, courage, and swimsuit shopping.

Yup, still a slacker. Squeezing this puppy in with just a few hours left in the day. A more devoted blogger would have gotten this done last night and scheduled it to post a 4am this morning. I have no excuse. Well, actually I have three. Work. Headache. I really wanted to finish the book I was reading.

As you likely know by now, this is a weekly link-up hosted by Nicole (Three 31), Jen (The Arizona Russums), Becky (The Java Mama), and I.

Okay, here goes Week 7.


1. I plan on buying…
…a pair of trail shoes to wear when I go to Hawaii in April. Got any recommendations? So far I’ve ordered these Olukai sneakers so far. I suspect they won’t look very attractive on me, and I’m sure I’ll order several more pairs before I find a winner.

2. I give ____ five stars because…
True Romance! I finally saw this movie for the first time on Friday night, and I loved it so much! I was also lucky enough to see it on the big screen at the Naro theater in Norfolk, which was an added bonus. Loved the characters, loved the story, loved the soundtrack, loved the leopard print, and especially loved the sunglasses.


3. I felt courageous when…
…I nominated myself to manage my company’s CRM implementation. It’s a big project, and it’s why I’ve been so busy, but it’s totally worth it, and it’s going to completely change the way we do business. Things are only going to get more hectic, but I’m enjoying the challenge.

4. I feel about swimsuit shopping like I do…
…pretty much about anything else — indecisive and kind of nutty. My thoughts go like this: Swimsuit shopping? Yay! Summer! Wait? I have to wear a swimsuit? Crap. I should eat a salad for lunch tomorrow. And go for a run. But I really like this one… Are swimsuits really worth this much money? What color will make me look tan? Will I look fat in this? Am I too old for bikinis? Should I get a one-piece? Maybe I’ll use my surfboard this summer. I want to go on vacation. Oh yeah! I am going on vacation. Shit! That means I really do need to go swimsuit shopping. 🙂

    I’m so impressed and proud of you for all the work you’re doing at the office. Seriously, you should pat yourself on the back. If I lived closer, I’d totally take you out to lunch (for salads, of course) for celebratory just-because reasons. I ate probably five pounds of mixed fruit tonight …. does that cancel out the four dozen lactation cookies I consumed last week?! I’m so pathetic.

    I adore my Saucony Perigrine 4’s that I just got! If you are seriously in the market for good trail shoes with a rock plate give them a look. If not look into Chaco sandals! I love mine (I have 2 pair!)
