I was well behaved, considering…

Considering we were at an Outlet mall.

Considering I went into TJ Maxx for the first time in a whiiiile.

Considering said mall is only about 15 minutes from the apt. This is dangerous….

Considering we were among stores like Banana Republic, H&M, J. Crew, Guess, Nine West…..yah, you get it.

In search for some shoes that I need for this weekend, I had to look up the closest mall in the area. It was a little strange to realize I’ve lived here for almost 2 months and have not even thought about where a mall might be. Or bought a new pair of shoes!! Whoa.

Well, today we did a little shopping. I may have bought some jewelry, a few shirts, and a pair of silver shoes for the wedding. But thats where it ends. I avoided some stores, knowing very well what would happen upon entering. Like, um, Nine West? No way. Yup, self-control is winning over here.

I almost forgot how great it is to buy things without paying for shipping & handling. No online shoppin necessary here! Yet another reason to love how close things are on this crazy East Coast. It might not always be ‘budget friendly’, but what can ya do.

just a few things

Oh aaand yes I survived the race. It was a gorgeous 75º, not a cloud in the sky. The course is pretty hilly, but lined with some amaaaazing supporters (Favorite: guy in a Tiger suit…dancing, car windows/doors open, stereo blasting “eye of the tiger”. good stuff). Not even sure I could’ve heard the iPod if I did have it on (which some ppl totally did, cheaters). Also not sure I’m in love with the “big” race concept, but it was an experience, and the after-partyyyy is definitely much more exciting. More like a mini-carnival to celebrate the fact that your legs are about to fall off. But yay running!

(pics courtesy of the roomie! the second is obviously a cropped version, but ya know what…post-13.1 miles is not glamorous. I just love the medal, it has a crab!! sweeet.)

17,500 runners.

Lovin the Baltimore Crab Medal. And being done with the race.
