A sparkly day!

I'm back!!!!!!!.....Meaning that I finally had a good the 37 degree drizzle! The best part~My sparkly headband and I ran a nice little 5k loop in 25:51 this morning~ Yes, that would be a 8:19 pace~ the pace I like to train at!  And I added another mile to it making it a nice even 4 miles.

My new favorite outfit- Lulu Run tech top and my sparkle headband!
I had bought the technical top a few months ago, but being sidelined from running I had no use to wear it- This is my second run in it and I love it!! Perfect for 37 degrees and rain. One of the best parts:

Nice little thumb holes to keep those hands warm. (This wont be warm enough for my paws once the snow hits but for now it's perfect!) If you don't own any Lululemon- BUY SOME...I used to think it was insanely priced but this fabric is 100% worth it.
Another cute part of this shirt:
Around the inside of the waistline is the saying: " I am a runner because I run. Set your goals. Life is too short for the treadmill, get out and run! Do it now."

Agreed. Life is way too short for the treadmill!!!!

I have gotten several compliments on my sparkle headband. Love this thing~ it does not slip at all and was created by a triathlete. Gives a nice extra "pop" to your outfit and keeps your hair out of your face.

After my run today I went to yoga at my gym...such a treat to be able to go to Karyn's power vinyasa class since I am on vacation!!!!! Sparkle headband attended as well.

Speaking of sparkles...another sparkly part of my day was lunch at the best sushi place in town~ SHIKI!! I hadn't been there in awhile and everything was fabulous as usual. You know it's a good sushi place when all the Asians in town are eating there. Love that it is not mainstream.
My favorite thing to order: Spicy shrimp roll- no other sushi place has perfected the mayo based spiciness like they have (and I have eaten at Nobu and several other "decent" sushi places).

And to top of my day I spent the afternoon making a dent in my xmas shopping.
I love candles and think they make a great "generic" gift...but really $20 for these things!!!???
You can't really tell by the picture but they actually aren't big at all.. Yeah, I could easily go to many other stores and pay half of that...Great smell but I refuse to drop $20 on a small candle!
I spent my $20 in much better ways buying several gifts for people-yay for a dent in the xmas shopping!!!
Hope everyone had a sparkly day!!

Do you wear Lululemon?

Favorite type of sushi??

Xmas shopping started?

    I went to this place before, it is pretty good and filled with asians lol
