Shopping and Baseball and Car Rides, Oh My!

Hey everyone! It was nice to have one last hurrah before school starts – a trip to Detroit! This post will be a recap of the trip, and Wednesday’s post will be the eats 😀

Mom and I headed out right after my cross country meet where I got 4th place! My time was 21:08. It was so. hot. Which figures since we ran at 12:30!

Mackinac Bridge

After what seemed like forever, we finally made it to our hotel. We were so tired, we just went straight to bed!

The next morning we woke up ready to shop.

We went to Great Lakes Crossing, Michigan’s largest outlet mall! I’m telling you, it has the largest Forever 21 you will ever go to. It’s the size of a department store. Oddly, I couldn’t find a single thing there. Crazy. Normally I’m head over heels in that store! I really didn’t get too many clothes. I don’t need any! I did get…

an anchor shirt! I’ve been looking so long for one and I finally found one! It’s from Windsor Store. I’m thinking first day of school outfit! Some more purchases:

pink

Victoria’s Secret actually had good deals. Running shorts for $8, tshirt and capris each $10, sports bra for $5!

white jeans

White jeans at American Eagle for $12!

I didn’t even run that day. Walking around the mall was workout enough!

After shopping we headed to the heart of Detroit – Comerica Park!

Go Tigers!

The Tigers were ahead 5-2 when we decided to leave in the bottom of the seventh. Good thing we left, because literally the minute we were on the road it started POURING! Pouring like couldn’t see the car in front of you and going 45 on the freeway. Luckily we made it to our hotel safe in about a half hour!

On the way home we stopped at the Mystery Spot to say hi to my cousins – they own it! We also stopped to find a Geocache.

I finished two books during this road trip – “The Michigan Murders” and “Almost Anorexic”. They were both amazing books. Highly recommended reads.

Now I’ll just be enjoying my last day of summer – I start high school on Tuesday! Wish me luck 😀

Fashion Friday {Fair Week}

Fashion Friday {5/28-5/31} + some honesty

Long time no see! I didn’t participate in WIAW first because I didn’t take one picture the whole day and two I’m not putting blogging first thing in my life. It was getting to be more of a habit, not a hobby, and I don’t want to become obsessed with it. I know, summer normally equals more blog time.. but I am so busy. I’m only going to post if I have something to say or did something awesome. I’m not going to post just  for the sake of posting. I’m gonna enjoy my summer! I will definitely keep reading blogs though. I love reading about your lives! 😀

How is it June tomorrow?! May seriously flew by! I didn’t have school on Monday which resulted in running shorts and a tshirt.

And there you have it! I don’t know if I’ll continue Fashion Friday during the summer.. since I wear running clothes everyday. Maybe here and there I’ll share a cute outfit. I’m just so excited to be done with middle school!

Later tonight is my basketball team party then tomorrow I’m heading down to Green Bay for my brother’s birthday. It’s gonna be a really fun weekend! I’ll (most likely) see you on Monday 😉

Have a wonderful weekend! 

Also, be sure to check out Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day!  I didn’t participate this month, but I had a great experience in March. See ya later!

I am loving spring outfits!

So, I had a track meet yesterday. To sum it up, I did pretty good. My first event was shot put which I threw 20’11”. Considering we had to throw the guys ball, it’s not bad. Then I had to wait for about 2 hours for my next events. 800 was first. I didn’t break the school record, but I did win in 2:45. My heart seriously felt weird after this one. I think it’s because I’m used to running long distances and not sprints! I had an event’s break, then I ran the 2400. I wasn’t going to go super hard since I just ran and to save myself for the half marathon on Sunday(!). Somehow I ended up winning though, in 9:38! And even better, I felt like I could’ve kept going at that pace. Score! Right after that I ran to the discus where I threw 50’something. Hey, it was my first time doing it! This was such a long meet. After a Subway stop (where I tried avocado on my sub- I like it without better!) and an hour’s drive home, I hit.the.sack. I slept so good last night. Now I’m taking it easy today and tomorrow because my first half marathon is on Sunday! 

I’m getting new shoes this weekend. Any suggestions? Please help! 

Any tips for a first half marathon?!

Have a super weekend! 😀

Tomorrow is the big day. It’s the 5k. That I organized. Oh I just really hope the weather holds out! It rained today! I’ll write a whole recap tomorrow, don’t worry 😉 I think it’s gonna go really well.

Any races coming up for you?

The half is next weekend! Ahh!

I forgot to take a picture of the whole outfit so here’s a selfie. It was just jeans and Toms. Love Toms.

This shirt is very significant. I bought it last year. But I refused to wear it because I looked fat. (I wasn’t fat, but the shirt was not very flattering). When I tried it on…  it looked good. It just showed how much I’ve changed from last year.

I really like this picture

I bought a bike!

I’ve been using my cheap old bike for so long and I needed a new one so bad. I’ve looked before but I am the worst decision maker ever and couldn’t decide to save my life. Too much money? Ugly? Uncomfortable?  But I just said whatever and bought it! That was a really big step. I let change happen. And it has a super cute design on the spine!

I have a busy weekend ahead. Birthday party tonight, big Geocaching event tomorrow, 11 miles (longest I’ve ever done) on Sunday! If I make it you’ll hear a recap 🙂

Do you bike ride? Have a hard time making decisions?
