Me, me, me

Move that body: 5.01-mile run

I needed a day. A day just for me. So I talked to my boss and put in for a vacation day.


I dropped Miles off at day care.


And I picked up a skinny peppermint mocha from Starbucks.

I went to the spa …


… where I had an indulgent Organic Sugar Scrub pedicure.


I met Mark for lunch. (He had to take the day off for a doctor’s appointment.Three months and his sprained ankle is still wonky.)


I went shopping for an outfit for Miles to wear during his Christmas card photo shoot this weekend with the fabulous Kelly Benton. By the way, this is only part of the ensemble. You should see the hat!


I came home and picked up my running partner Denali for a relatively relaxed five miles along the greenway.

Afterward, I took a bath and read Entertainment Weekly while in the tub. (There will never be such pictures on this blog.)

It was a good day. The best part was that I did it all for me.

What have you done for yourself lately?


  1. awesome! It's so important that you have 'me' time still...otherwise you may lose your mind. For myself recently? I did nothing on sunday besides some quick errands. Just relaxed -didn't clean, didn't worry about the week ahead, etc. it was glorious

  2. That sounds amazing!! Excellent idea!

  3. What a fabulous idea! I'm glad that you had a great day :)

  4. Yay for a day for you!!! I'm sooo happy for you - you certainly deserve that. I had a pre-race hot rock massage today.

    Love that today's weather was warm and beautiful and that allowed you to wear shorts and have a leisurely run with your "other son" :)

    BOOOO to Mark's ankle - now what? I certainly hope it heels soon!!!! Enough already, Mr. Gimpy!

  5. Love it! I need a day like that. And it's so funny that I read this post now, and just about FIVE seconds ago, I was looking at photos and thinking about our shoot this weekend :)

  6. Adorable picture of Miles!

    Your day sounds phenomenal, I am sort of jealous! I got to sleep in today and did a whole lot of NOTHING around the house! That was my "me day" even though it involved "watching" my kids... truthfully they watched alot of TV today. Whoops!

    Hooray for a fun 5 mile run with Denali! The weather today was perfect for a run.

    P.S. Hope Mark's ankle heals soon!

  7. That sounds amazing! Maybe I'll do the same on the Monday after Thanksgiving. It's been a long time.

  8. you deserve it!!!!! Your day sounds amazing! Everytime I go for a run or to the gym I do it for me, and its my alone time!

  9. Sounds well-deserved :) I love taking baths and reading my book!
