miscellany monday

happy monday everyone! i think that i’m finally getting back on track.   i just have to take some time to take a few ootd’s for the week and i’ll be all set for the week.  i’ve added my random ramblings to carissa’s miscellany monday party!  check out carissa’s blog here and join in on the fun. 

{one} hurricane sandy. my thoughts and prayers go out to the people affected by hurricane sandy.  a disaster like this really puts everything into perspective. i recently made a donation to the red cross because i wanted to help out in some way.  if you are interested in contributing to the relief efforts, then you can donate to the red cross online (here) or you can donate to the salvation army online (here). 

{two} running. in september, i mentioned that i was contemplating running in the lady speed stick women’s half marathon on november 18, 2012.  unfortunately, i didn’t’ sign up for it this year because of the location and my current job responsibilities.  hopefully, next year i’ll be able to participate in the race.  instead, i’ve decided to run in a local half marathon on thanksgiving day.  i’m looking forward to the race and i’m happy that i will be running pretty close to home.  another race that i’m looking into is the nike women’s half marathon in washington, dc on april  28, 2013.  the race course looks pretty amazing and you get a tiffany's necklace at the end of the race.

{three} san francisco. i had a blast in san francisco and i plan to write more about it very soon.

{four} vote for somebody. although i’ve already voted, i wanted to still remind everyone to get out and vote tomorrow.  hopefully, by now most of you have a pretty good idea of which presidential candidate that your going to vote for in tomorrow’s election.  however, if you are still unsure, don’t let your lack of decisiveness keep you from going out to the polls.  everyone at the very least should go out to the polls and vote for somebody.  and i’m not the only one that thinks this way.  check out this video from a group of children from harlem's democracy prep school who is reminding everyone to vote this year.

Current Mood – Top 3

I recently received Anthropologie’s November 2012 catalog and I’m very happy to say that I love all of the looks.  This catalog has great pictures of snowflakes and cozy sweaters that have me longing for winter weather.  Unfortunately for me, those days are a long way from here.  This past weekend we had pretty warm weather all the way up to the mid-80s. Have you checked out Anthro’s new arrivals yet? If so, what did you all think about the pieces? Here are my top 3 items from Anthropologie for the month of November. Do any of you have any favorites that you can’t live without this month?  What’s on the top of your wish list?
