One resolution down.

My "7am-absolutely-terrified-what-was-I-thinking" face. 
BUT...done! :)
After finishing my first half marathon in Central Park.

This weekend I accomplished something I never really thought I would...I ran my first half marathon! I put it on my New Years Resolution list that I posted a few months ago, but truthfully, part of me thought I would never actually go through with it. Even in the days leading up to the race, I tried to downplay it or not even tell a lot of people I was running it because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it...or maybe just thought it really wasn't that big of a deal. But then I did it, and truthfully, I did so much better than I ever thought I could have. I felt proud of myself again...and receiving all the encouragement and congrats by friends and family made me realize it IS a big deal! I ran 13 miles. I RAN 13 miles. It's something  I can check off my life list. Now, to beat my time on the next one... :)

Wednesday Wish List.

So usually I have about 10 things on my "If I had any form of extra money I would buy this..." list, but seeing as this is my birthday month (yes, I have a birthday month. I LOVE birthdays (I blame this on my mother)), I usually tend to do more browsing than usual. So...my list of things I wish I could buy is very, very long. Add in my daily browsing of pinterest and it's just out of control. Anyway, here are some of the things that I would buy today if I had the funds :) 

Pura Vida Hippie Headbands. Some of my friends would totally give me flack for this but sometimes I love this style. I could totally see myself rocking some of these this summer. (pic via LaurenConrad.com)
I freaking love everything about this dress. If I was caught on a slightly less weaker day (maybe tomorrow), my credit card would already be charged.
These are cute. 

I'm loving these fun bracelets. I'd love to stack on a few at a time.

I wish this skirt was mine.
Boyfriend jeans are having a moment...and I want every pair GAP has to offer.
In love with delicate rings...and this would my next purchase.
Happy Wednesday!
