It’s been a girl themed week.
Last Thursday my 4 daughters and I went big city shopping. It was a birthday shopping trip for my oldest daughter Grace since I was going to be gone over the weekend of her birthday. We spent the whole day hitting everything from anthropologie to thrift stores. The girls are now set for clothes for the rest of the warm weather season, which is a relief to me since shopping with them is a test in endurance. Of me and my wallet.
For myself, I am on the search for t-shirts with sleeves. Not long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. Just plain old short sleeves that are long enough to cover my arm flaps. It’s a sad day when you nearly slap someone with your extra arm skin and I am trying to avoid that with sleeves and prayer.
Saturday and Sunday I went to Austin. I ran my first 5K this weekend. I did it with my sister….she gave it to me for my birthday and it was a double treat to get to spend the time with her.
I have never had any interest in doing any kind of running or, really, moving at all. But after walking every morning since last July it was pretty easy. And on a cool spring morning….almost heaven.
To keep the girl theme going I will be going on a photoshoot for my daughter’s 17th birthday this week. Shopping is not her thing. She asked for a photoshoot in the city and as an added bonus she wants to be there when the sun rises to get the best lighting. Leave the house at 6AM….oh sure. Because giving birth to you wasn’t enough of a sacrifice.
Next week I need to have a boy themed week. Those are much easier. Just dump some Legos in the living room and throw food into the middle every few hours.
Have a great April!
