My favorite from last week + Workout Review

Apparel :

1) This super cute hat!!! It was $2.50!!! Smiles are free!! 



( I was eating a Banana.. Not the best time to snap a picture)


2) Some if you're looking for somePRO Compression  socks, they are having a great deal on their baby blue and purple socks (yay, epilepsy representation) this month... I scored a pair of purple for $30 with free shipping.. Coupon code is SOMF4. Pretty sweet deal!! I would like some other colors and their shorty socks, but maybe another pay check!



Media: 


1) A Dream so Big:

As I have a heart for Africa, and have experienced first hand the devastation of AIDS and the heart for orphans, this was the perfect read for me this week.. It was a great escape from my pity party.

Steve Peifer and his wife, Nancy experienced the loss their son, Stephen after having only spending 8 days with him due to a chromosomal condition called Trisomy. The way the God transformed their lives, was nothing that they could have even dreamed of. After agreeing to be dorm parents in a boarding school in Kenya for a year, their lives completely transformed and so did their hearts.  They experienced first hand the disease, deep poverty and hunger. The two didn't stop, but instead built a life to helping the people.  I recommend a tissue and a couple of hours because you won't want to put this down. 



The Voice:

I love Usher and Shakira.. It adds a different dimension to contest and I like it much better than American Idol!




Food:

These delicious and I mean DELICIOUS Apple Muffins from Costco! I could eat them all.. So YUM!!!





Hobbies:

I am working on my Run Disney Scrapbook.. I really have needed a lot of encouragement this week.. The awful seizure brought me down... Every time I look at these pictures, it gives me the strength to keep going.. I've been scrapbooking like a crazy woman to get these pictures done...





These are a few things that I have enjoyed this past week....  My workout re-cap isn't that bad for the week either..

Very cute scrapbook! I loved getting in a couple of really strong runs this week. Martian Half next weekend is looking good - provided I can kick the cold that I've managed to pick up.
