Leather Bags in London

I’ve been super curious about reflexology lately. Which might be the most Enya thing I’ve ever said.

Do you know much about it? Dudes. There are like, 6 trillion PRESSURE POINTS on the bottoms of your feet (which grosses me out, frankly), each having their own superhighway of energy to all the organs in your bodies. You just press on each specific area with your fingertip for a few seconds, and apparently it will help improve the function of whatever organ it’s attached to. Isn’t that disgusting? And it gets intense, too – like, the super tiny creases under your toes? Press those to improve your SINUSES. Ew. It’s bizarre to me how it’s all so connected. I feel like I need to be wearing a flowy Celtic dress right now.

Do you think it’s a bunch of mumbo jumbo or does it actually work? I’m skeptical (I almost typed spectacle) about it, but I want to belieeeeve.

Like, the other night I tried pushing on this tiny area on my toe to see if I would barf. Ha ha hahaha! I have issues.

Pretty stuff to drink at Daylesford in London (notting hill)

Well, it’s officially been two weeks since a special era of my life has ended, and I have only one thing to say about it: I MISS FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS WAAAAAAAAH.

I liked the way the series ended! Very Parenthood. Er, I guess Parenthood was very Friday Night Lights. Since it came later. Parenthood, that is. Never mind.

(spoiler alert!!!)

  • Did Tim Riggins and Tyra seriously get back together? I didn’t like her hair in the last season. Too dark. She needed that edgy blonde bob again.
  • I wish they’d brought Lyla back for the finale. But then that would have janked up the Tyra/Tim tango. OR MADE IT BETTER?
  • I loved that the Taylors left Texas and moved to Philly. (can I call it Philly? that felt weird.)
  • The Lions won State, right? Remember the football fade from night to day, and then all of a sudden it was months later in a new city? I’m guessing they did win, because didn’t Luke give his ring to Becky when he got on the army bus? Did I see that right? I basically need to stop thinking about this.
  • MATT AND JULIE. Seriously, Matt was such a sweetie bear poo pie and Julie’s stupid bangs and pout fest did noooot deserve him and his lusciousness. Actually, have you seen this hilarious article on Buzzfeed about why Julie Taylor was the worst FNL character ever? I AGREE 100%. And yes it was two entire years ago. Stop laughing.
  • That’s all I have. I think. Are you happy? Don’t answer that.

All the wine in Paris, France

Is it just me, or do any of you have an intense need to wash your hands the nanosecond after sweeping the floors?

Fish market in Paris, France

RUNNERS: I nayad ya hayelp.

I’m in the market for new running shoes. I’ve had mine for two years (which I realize is way too long for a runner, don’t punch!) Do you have any brands you’ve fallen in love with and buy over and over? I’ve tried a ton, like Adidas, Sauconys, Brooks, Asics, Mizuno, Keds, etc.

(just kidding about the keds thing I just said)

If you have any suggestions, RUN THEM PAST ME ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I suck.

In the Ladurée - Paris, France

Weekend plans? My prrrrnts are in town from Little Rock, so we’re going to head out this morning and go grab a cappuccino (<–!!! that’s the person I am now), and piddle around town with the gremlins. I think tonight Aaron and I may step out for a nice drink and/or dinner becauuuuuse 11 years ago TODAY was our rehearsal dinner! Meaning tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. (insert collective “awwww” here)

Also! I’m pregnant again. With triplets.

    DARNIT I REALLY WANTED YOU TO BE PREGZ AGAIN!!!! And triplets would have been insane!!!! I'm so upset ..... hahahah

    HIGHLY recommend Altra running shoes! I recently switched over to them and they have been a game changer. They deeeeefinitely don't have a lot going on in the looks department but it is like running on clouds! (I have the Altra Provision 2.5)
  3. Emily @ Life on Food April 1, 2016 at 8:11 am #
    I love Asics running shoes
  4. Hannah April 1, 2016 at 8:16 am #
    Mizuno, 100%! Those are the ones that work for me and I LOVE them
  5. sharana @ Living The Sweet Life Blog April 1, 2016 at 8:25 am #
    I could sooo go for a cappuccino right now. Also, triplets would make you so much closer to becoming the Von Trapp family ... kind of ... okay maybe not. But it's worth a thought?

    Re: running shoes - highly suggest not taking any specific advice about brands, because every's feet and legs and bodies and movements are different! Go to your local running store and have them watch you walk or run or whatever they do, and let them recommend a style/brand that works for your body. :)
    • Bev Weidner April 1, 2016 at 8:53 am #
      I agree! I have this little running shoe store that records me running on a treadmill, and then slows it down and studies my running gait. It's super awesome. Slash NOT. :)

    Reflexology actually really helps my sciatica? I know, it's super weird. My dad learned it from some hippie reflexology book he bought in like 1972 and he tried it on me when I was having a particularly bad flare-up. The spot you press on is right near the ankle and it hurts like HELL, but it's totally worth it. This was over fifteen years ago and now I make my husband do it for me because the angle is weird to be able to press hard enough on your own foot.

    Love this post- I am also curious about reflexology. One of my yoga teacher's mom's does it and I'm secretly hoping he'll set up a workshop or something so I can try it. Re: FNL, I've watched the final montage like way more times than is normal. They definitely won - if you look when they go into the "future", the guy who catches the ball first is wearing a ring, Coach Taylor is, the girl who helped with the team whose name I'm forgetting is holding a clipboard at her new job that the Coach got her and she's wearing one too. I loved that that was how they showed you they won. Best finale ever - I also immediately had to download the song that was playing too - so good!!

    I have a pair of Adidas Energy Boost that I love, and Shelly (CookiesandCups) just snapped about her new Adidas Pure Boost shoes, which I'm excited to try. As someone who ran cross country for years, though, I'm going to agree on getting your gait and arches checked at a store that specializes in running shoes if you do significant running. Running is extremely hard on your body, so proper support is important. /boring
  10. Ellie | Hungry by Nature April 1, 2016 at 9:45 am #
    I wear Mizunos, but that is only because I went to a running store and was fitted for my shoes. I would def suggest you do that - they will look at the arch of your foot and watch you run and get you a shoe that is specific to your foot, not anyone else's preferences! The only downside is sometimes the shoe that fits you best isn't very cute... womp womp.
  11. Debi April 1, 2016 at 10:35 am #
    100% agree with every word about Friday Night Lights! Oh how I miss that show. I got nothin' on your shoe dilemma...plantar fasciitis can suck it.
  12. Nicola April 1, 2016 at 11:07 am #
    PSA - 'piddle' means 'pee' in the UK *not an April Fool thang* Happy Anniversary!
  13. Rachel April 1, 2016 at 12:59 pm #
    These are my favorite posts. I run in Saucony's but I don't pay too much attention to the brand. I would recommend going to a running store to get fitted, as people have already mentioned, and buy whatever shoe they recommend, even if they're ugly. Just wear a baseball cap and sunglasses when you go for a run and no one will know it's you...

    I love how you just threw some more trip photos in there. ;-)
  15. Tina April 1, 2016 at 4:05 pm #
    Happy Anniversary - enjoy celebrating because every year is worth it, rrrrright? I'm on my 33rd - how can it be?! Anyway, I've done the shoe store thing which is crucial but now that I know what I need - basically huge and supportive (I have plantar fascitis too and a size 12) I simply buy a half dozen pairs from and run around my house in all of them. I choose the best and send back the rejects for free! You know about Zappos - free shipping and free returns and it's awesome because they have size 12s! I loved hearing about your train trip. More on travel later and a packing tip involving running shoes! Keep the photos coming please!

    The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
