friday the good

every good friday, i think of my most excellent running chum, sandy (from back when we ran together at the y) who called good friday “no fun friday,” and did not permit herself to do anything that she enjoyed for the whole entire day. that logic is a little too extreme for me although the #1 item for me today is spring cleaning, a job that does not exactly fill me with mirth. i will keep visualizing the “after” look of the condo casa to keep me on task!

i was going to entitle today’s post fun! facts! friday! (and yes, use an abundance of exclamation points to make up for yesterday) but good friday does contain solemn overtones to it, given my christian upbringing – even if fun is allowed, in my books. i also ruled out five foto friday or friday fotos because i am trying to never repeat a blog title (i think i’m on track, do correct me if i am wrong).

shopping is always entertaining to discuss, and i managed to finagle it so that the items begin with “f;” here are two purchases from this week!

#1: feather earrings:

i had my heart set on the peacock type!

in the fashion post from not so long ago, i mentioned these earrings, and i’ve been fixated on them since then. so, i caved and bought them…there were cheaper ones at conestoga mall, but they were not PEACOCK feathers, and i know from previous experience that if i “settle” for x when i truly want y, i will regret it – and end up buying y, eventually.

good progress is being made with the spring fashion wardrobe, 2012 edition!

  • aviator sunglasses
  • cutoff shorts (i did get the roxy’s at o.w. sports – 50% off? i had to!).
  • peacock earrings

i think i’ve satisfied my shopping bug! ok, not quite…

#2 nike free shoes

wayyyyy back here (september 2011!) i first talked about and showed you these shoes. every. single. day. i have gazed at them at the storeS and thought about how very cute and happy they are. well, they finally went on sale….and i bought a pair:

welcome home!!

(karen, you and i can be twins on our next coffee get-together!!).

this purchase is justifiable – i had to grab my fifth pair of these fantastic frees! look at my purple pair!

i can't be wearing hole-y frees around - how unprofessional!

now, can you guess why the nike free + 2 shoes went on sale??? yea. if you guessed at the arrival of the updated version, you would be correct.

the nike free + 3 shoes - in stores now! luckily, i have a pair of neon pink, so while these are fun, they are not essential to my life

it is just impossible to keep up around here!

how are you spending good friday? how much fun will you have? i am breaking up my cleaning marathon with a mid-day coffee outing!
