Sunday Funday

Ran OUTSIDE in SHORTS today.  A balmy 55 degrees in West Texas.  Tomorrow's forecast:  70s.  SWEET.  Maybe Monday won't be a rest day after all.  No School.  Even SWEETER!

I even thought a time or two about stripping to my tank, but where would I put my shirt?  I was suppose to run 9 but turned it into 7.  Why? I was actually feeling pretty good, but I was short on time.  I stopped back by the house to get a drink and ended up wasting time talking to the hubby who was resting after his grueling 1.5 mile jog. I'm being mean.  He just stared crossfit and has been SORE.  I had to make these for my niece for her birthday...why do something weeks in advance when you can wait til hours before?
Bummed you can see the detailed stiching.  I should have taken a better picture!

I named my blog Bling on the Run partly because of my hobby side business.  I make jewelry and decorate jeans, camo pants, flip flops, hats, etc.   I have a business partner, but she moved away 2 years ago, and I haven't been very motivated to really work the business with her gone.  My plan is to scale back and just do custom orders and gifts for friends and family.  Next month will be my last month to have a "store front".  I chose not to renew my website at the end of the year.  I'm a little sad.  I just don't have time for work, children, the business and running.  Something had to give.  So, I will be having a "Going out of Business" sale next month.   I will be sure to post pictures of all the gorgeous merchandise!

Yesterday, I did manage to make it to Target.  I went for one item - the jeans I needed to decorate.  I came home with ONE basket FULL.  In my defense the lamp and shade is for my mom.   

After this shopping trip, I am officially back on the Dave Ramsey envelope plan! 
I'm gonna have to sell some jewelry to make up for this!


  1. Woah! Cute jeans :) I wish I could wear stuff like that. When I was younger, I thought it would make me look too young, and now that I'm older, I'm worried it will make me look like an old lady trying to re-live her youth. What's a girl to do?!?! But I seriously LOVE them! Can't wait to see the jewelry you make too!

  2. YOu should totally host a bling giveaway on your blog. Expose your readers to your goods! I'd love to see more!

  3. Ha, Target always gets ya! I walk in there with one thing in mind...and always walk out with MORE than the one thing i came to get. :)

    Great job on your 7 miles!

  4. You could even put your handmade goods in my oven, clone them, then do the giveaway ;)

    AND keep your kids out of my oven. We do not want a giveaway of curtain climbers ;)
