miscellany monday

happy monday everyone! i hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.  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} race recap. i ran in a local half marathon on thanksgiving day and i had a blast. my plan was to finish the race under 2 hours and 30 minutes because i really didn’t train for this one.  my plan was to use this race as a training race for another half marathon that’s scheduled for december.  anyways, here’s my recap - there were 2081 total race finishers and 1046 female finishers.  my official chip time was 2:07:07 and my gun time was 2:08:19 and my split time for a 10k was 58:00.

{two} nwm half dc. i just signed up for the nike women’s half marathon that scheduled for april 28, 2013 in washington, dc.  the registration for this race is done by a random draw and it’s open until december 6, 2012.  each finisher of the nwm half dc will receive an official finisher's necklace designed by tiffany & co. this race is raising money for a great cause - the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  i really hope that i get picked for this race.  it looks like it will be pretty fun. 

{three} black friday and cyber monday. did any of you brave the crowds on thursday evening for some early black friday specials or did you go out early friday morning?  i only went out to macy’s and target a little after midnight.  macy’s was a little too crowded to really start shopping and i found a bunch of great gifts for my nieces and nephew at target.  there were some pretty amazing deals for cyber monday.  i only bought a few things today, but i was able to get some holiday shopping out of the way.  did any of you buy anything today for cyber monday?

Fresh Picks to Follow – Paisley Print

Another classic look that has trickled over from spring and summer 2012 is the beautiful kidney-shaped paisley print.  Although this pattern is named after the town of Paisley, Scotland, the paisley pattern is of Iranian origin.  It’s a favorite pattern used regularly in Persian shawls and scarves.  The paisley print was really popular in the sixties and seventies and it’s back again in new groovy designs.  For this week’s Fresh Picks to Follow, check out my top 10 ways to wear paisley prints this fall. Do any of you have any clothing with paisley prints? Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: A View From the Top

I’ve been slacking on taking pictures of my outfits lately, so here’s one last picture from my trip to San Francisco.  This picture was taken at the top of the Coit Tower.  It felt like we took a long hike up Telegraph Hill just to get to the tower, but it was worth it.  I was completely captivated by the breathtaking view of this fabulous city.  If you plan to make it out to San Fran, then you should make a quick stop to Coit Tower for the best views of the city.  Have you ever been to Coit Tower?  Let me know in the comments.
