Wanted: Park with Trails!!

I drove to 6 different parks in my area today. It is great that there are TONS of parks in my area, but NOT ONE of them had trails for me to run!!! 

This is Lake Arlington Park...Very Pretty, but no running trails!


So what did I do after not finding a park?
Why I went shopping of course!
Mostly window shopping. Since I don't have a job at the moment, I don't want to waste money on silly things. I did however buy a piece for my Halloween costume!

This is just a hint of who I will be...More to come this weekend! :)

I did, however, make time to get to our apartment office. There is actually a Treadmill in the "workout" room in the complex, but it has been broken. The office manager let me know that it should be fixed by the end of the week...I hope it is! That would give me more time to find a good park!

I also had a nice time on our patio "car watching" with the puppies!

The puppies had fun too!!! :) 
The wind has been blowing today, so the weather was surprisingly nice!
I can't wait until it gets cooler out!

I did another 2 miles on the elliptical last night. At least I am able to keep up my cardio. I just so need to run! I am just afraid to do it alone without my hubby on these streets! Now that he has a "real" job, I will have to wait on him to get home! :) 

I am still in the process of job hunting. I got 2 calls today, but I'm not sure they will turn into something. They always want me to have "1 more year experience, or one more certification in something else". Get's you down when you keep hearing that. I'll keep trying though! I know there is a need for nurses somewhere around here!! :)

My day tomorrow looks like this:
Eat breakfast
Apply for jobs
Eat lunch
Apply for more jobs
Possibly go on the elliptical
Eat Dinner
Probably apply for more jobs! :)
Oh and take the dogs out to potty every 10 min...
I am attempting to re-potty train them in the new place!! :)

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!! :)

  1. Applying for jobs is so stressful! I hope you don't have much longer.

    And I can't stand parks without trails. Even though I'm not running on them yet, I love having them to walk with my daughter.

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
