Feature Friday: What's Currently On My Must-Have List & Favorite Story of the Week!

Happy Friday Friends! Any plans this weekend?!? Anyone racing?? I kinda feel like this is the "lull" in time between Summer races & just before Fall races begin. Is that just me? Alex's parents are in town (they got in yesterday- so we've been cleaning like crazy) & Alex is in the kickball tournament so I've got Saturday to spend with them (I've been brainstorming like crazy for things for us to do). I definitely think that the Farmer's Market is a must-do. I've only been ONCE this summer?!?! It's always so filled with tourists, but this time of year they're mostly gone which makes it a bit quieter. 

I am SO EXCITED to watch the NYC Marathon this year. The women's field is SO deep. Molly Huddle, Shalane, Desi, Mary Keitany of Kenya, Allie Kieffer, Sarah Sellers. It's going to be such an amazing race no matter who ends up on top! 

Also this story that I came across Runner's World is incredible. I cannot even imagine riding my bike 250 miles and then going on to RUN UP & DOWN a 14,000' (Pike's Peak)- not mention that he ended up WINNING the marathon. So amazing & inspiring. Does anyone else feel like they immediately need to go out and do something crazy incredible after reading a story like this or is it just me?

Does anyone else ever get in a shopping cart craze like me? I suppose it's better than actually going to the store and spending a lot of money shopping, but I love love love to just fill up my shopping carts with products I really want (but don't necessarily need). Anyways, I figured that I'd share with you some of my top "shopping cart" wants ; )

  • THIS BareMinerals Blemish Rescue Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation. I haven't tried it before and normally go with their loose power foundation, but if anything will help with my break-outs then I'm SOLD. 
  • THIS crop hop top & THESE Legs Lite shorts from Rabbit. I've heard so many wonderful things about Rabbit and haven't tried it yet, but I think that these two would make a PERFECT race day outfit come November. I've been dying to get a crop top and thinking this one may have to be my first purchase. Anyone a fan of Rabbit? What's your favorite piece? 
  • THIS Lux Funnel Neck in Smoke/Curfew. I am SUCH a huge fan of lux and probably could live in it if I had more pieces. This one looks so cozy and the perfect addition to my Fall/Winter repertoire. 

What is something that one your "wish list"?

Anyone racing this weekend?!?

NYC Marathon- anyone RUNNING it?!? ...someday I'd love to run it!!
