MIMM 9 8/19/13

Here are some of the mostly marvelous highlights of this past weekend, which flew by as usual! I need to come up with a list of things I'd like to get done before the summer officially ends. Add that to the long list of items on my to-do list this week. Hope your Monday is going as well as a Monday can go!

Marvelous is finally buying a cotton maxi skirt from J.C.Penney (hello, $10 off coupon!) because I've seen so many people wearing them. I got this one because it was cute and on sale! Anything that is supposedly super comfy and looks more pulled together than yoga pants is worth a try in my book. 

Marvelous is getting in 18 long and slow miles this weekend with my marathon training group peeps out by a local reservoir, complete with deer sightings! 

Marvelous is volunteering with my friend for a good cause and pouring beer at Hot August Blues festival. Then a few beers were had, and we got to rock out to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals (Grace Potter is my spirit animal, Sasha Fierce, etc. haha). 


Marvelous is sleeping in on rainy Sunday mornings and enjoying a bowl of organic knockoff brand cocoa puffs with some crappy morning TV. 

Marvelous is spending most of Sunday leisurely doing a massive food shopping haul with a pit stop to treat myself to a Starbucks coffee light frappuccino. 

Marvelous is finding that my local Trader Joe's had their creamy almond butter back in stock and picking up an extra backup jar. (My bf said "obsessed much?" when I told him the good news)

Not so marvelous is getting an email that I've got some work to do for the class I'm taking this semester. Boo. 

Marvelous is having my bf think Nutbutterrunner's Loaded "Nachos" were better than the Chipotle we had for dinner the previous  night. Win. 

My nachos with some guac on top before I ate the entire plate!

Not so marvelous is having a large to-do list for Monday and a busy week ahead of me!

What did you do this weekend? What's your favorite go-to comfy outfit?


  1. holy cow those nachos look amazeballs. and almost completely compliant with my sugar detox - definitely trying out these bad boys!

  2. Looks like you had some good things going on this weekend! 18 miles is a great distance, cool that you got some deer sightings too, I miss those. I used to see them all the time when I lived out in country but now being in the city it never happens.

    I love maxi dresses and skirts, actually on my go-to comfy list...along with jeans and a tee shirt.

    1. Yeah we took our training outside of the city for the long run and it was a nice change of scenery! Ah, I can't wait to wear my skirt!
