Sister Dear

Loving all of the excitement over my recent post and new blog! Y'all never fail to make a girl feel good and encouraged:)

Today is going to be a great day. My sister M is finally moving to Georgia!!!

We've had this in the works for weeks where M has drove down several times looking for work, going to interviews and helping us move. The hold up has been finding a job really, however, last week she landed one! Yay, for a no stress move:) Basically M is a rambler and wanting some change. So whats better then new scenery, new town and job yet still keeping family close by! She truly is one of my best friends, so having her around for the next year is going to be awesome, especially with R working those 16 hour days:( I will definitely be asking her to guest blog a few times on here, because M is simply the funniest most silliest, uncoordinated, yet very endearing person I know!

Another great part of today will be when R gets home and we go shopping for my new running shoes! Who else here loves that first run in new shoes? I bought my first good pair last year when I started running, Mizuno's, and have since replaced them once. But I loved those shoes! They were so super light and comfortable. I seriously could have ran forever in them *if my legs would have held up* and felt no pain. However, this most recent pair hasn't really impressed me much, and in fact has left my knees and feet aching more then before...So my question is "What brands/styles of running shoes do you ladies use?" I am looking into Brooks, which I hear wonderful things about, and Asics...I am a moderate over pronator so I do require some support...I'll listen to any recommendations/suggestions you might have because fter all, I am and do feel like a newbie again:p


  1. Congrats to your sister!

    As for running shoes, different brands work better for different people. Any runner worth their salt will tell you to go to a running store and get a professional opinion/fitting. For me, Nike is what works, but for a friend, it's Mizuno. If we switched, we'd both be in a world of hurt!

  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look :) Let's run together! ha ha I am picking it back up too and loving it. I built a pair of shoes on nikeid.com :)

  3. I'm glad you asked about running shoes, because I've been thinking about starting to run and needed just that advice. :)

  4. Congrats to your beautiful sister on her new job! I can't wait to hear from her when she makes her guest appearances. I love the new blog look and am so glad that you've got positive things happening in your life!!
