C25K Long Run!, Yahtzee, 9 New Dresses + My Hudsons are Back!

Sounds like most of us are having a hard time printing pics in this digital age! I think, now that I realize how easy it is to order prints online i'll do it... we'll see! Can't wait for them to come in - hating the waiting!!

So Yesterday was a pretty good day! I felt well rested, got lots of work done, then went down during lunch for 3 miles and an upper body circuit – woo!

Then it was just work some more and back to the gym where I am FINALLY back up to where I was. I ran for 28 minutes straight at 6.3 mph – WOO! Even with the 3 minute walk on the front end, by the time I got to 29.4 minutes I was at 3 miles! Then I kept running to 31 minutes and got 3.15 miles, then I walked it out to 3.25 miles, which took 32.43 minutes. Great workout! Then me and Stacy did abs – BLAH!

I raced home, had dinner and settled in for a night of 24. Then Katie/Chris called for a mini game night so we thought why not?! We stopped by Publix for me to grab some stuff to make Mac & Cheese for my sister’s housewarming party this weekend, and to order Austin’s birthday cake (multi-tasking!) then we were on our way! We had a great time, had a drink (only one glass of wine for me – what a record!), then played yahtzee, only the best game ever! I got TWO yahtzee’s – that almost never happens to me! Very exciting! We headed home around 11 so I could sleep – good times. I ended up at 1,682 calories, 196 carbs, 49 fat grams and 97 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.

So… today has been GREAT so far! I worked and then took my lunch to do something exciting!! I picked up 9 dresses and 2 pairs of jeans. Why? Because the boutique sale is coming up and my favorite Atlanta boutique, Fabrik, was having a pre-sale that started TODAY so I raced over and they had everything I loved and in my size.

The loot...


I would have saved LOTS but three dresses weren’t on sale but still GREAT deals that I think I can totally winterize too! Here’s the goods!

  • 2 pair Hudson Signature boot cut (light and dark) (buy one get one free)
  • Aryeh green dress
  • Yellow Tulle cut out dress
  • Yellow Tulle snap dress
  • Ya tube dress Hawaiian print
  • Tulle jersey top dress
  • Fabrik ruffle green dress
  • Fabrik print tube
  • Fabrik flower taupe dress
  • Fabrik lace grey/peasant dress
Yay - my fave jeans are back!

And in another wash!

Love the pockets -favorite part about them!

Cute green dress - LOVED all of the eyelet!

This dress was super cute in person - cute pockets and fab!

And this is the best part - the cute cut out back!

Hawaiian tube dress - so fun and only $20!

Loved this dress - fit SO good and has a cute tie-back bow in the back!

I got this dress! (those are snaps) but in the COLOR below

This color - dress style above!

Fun, simple summer dress - only $20!

Love the detail on the front and the fit!

has a cute, simple cut out in the back!

This is so pretty on to me - very romantic and flowy - the buttons are fun too - kind of peasant like

This one was different - kind of bebe style - had these curvy ruffles at top and this detail at bottom - I thought it would be nice for a summer wedding or rehearsal dinner!


WOO – I think I got some fabulous deals! Can’t wait to wear everything starting with tomorrow at Taverna Plaka for dinner and Saturday for my sister’s housewarming party!! I'm THRILLED about the dresses, but also the jeans. I LOVE Hudsons. Love the pockets, the stretch, the fit - everything about them and for them to have them in TWO washes in my size for buy one get one free?! I'm on a cloud. And i'm excited to get back into boot cut. I love skinnies but i've missed my bootcuts - yay Hudsons!

Q: Wear designer jeans? If so - which are your faves? I'm a huge fan of Hudsons, but also like AG's, Rock & Republics, J Brand's and Joe's. Austin likes AG's, 7's and Joe's!

Q: What is your thoughts on the cut outs this year? They seem to be in all of the dresses! I think it's cute if it's done tastefully (i.e. subtle!)

Q: Do you play yahtzee? If so - have you ever gotten one? I've never gotten more than 2 yahtzees in one round!

You are such a good shopper! Those dresses are cute.

I have two pairs of designer jeans - one are sevens and the other are joe's.

I love all of the new dresses!! Especially the one you said fit so good and has a cute tie-back bow in the back!

I've never purchased any designer jeans. Mostly b/c my jeans size has fluctuated so much... maybe after the baby when I can stabilize my weight I'll indulge in a nice pair of jeans!

Kacy said...

Gosh, all those dresses are SO cute. I'm green with envy right now! I think the cutouts are super fab!

Great job on the run!!

prettyface said...

LOVE the dresses, Kel!

I only wear designer jeans because they just fit differently AND better IMO. I LOVE Joe's and Citizens the MOST! I have a J Brand pair, and would love them, but they're a bit snug at the moment.

Cutouts are HOT and cute! If placed properly. Love that they;re in style!!

I want your shopping skills. That yellow dress with the cut out back is my fave...so cute!

As for yahtzee...my grandma wins every time.

Erica said...

oh my gosh- I can't focus on anything except the dresses. I am dress crazy (its pretty much all I wear from April--> October! I want to go to this store. I don't own any designer jeans. My friends keep telling me once I buy one pair I will be hooked. I think I'm just too cheap ;) You got so much accomplished! Hooray for you. Hope your legs are feeling better :)

Christina said...

Diane Fit to the Finish said...

Love, love, love those dresses. I think the cutouts are really cute - my oldest daughter has some with it.

Lisa @ I'm an Okie said...

ummm everything is so cute. I love how much you love dresses. I pretty much LIVE in dresses in the summertime.

You are doing SO good with running! I remember when 5 minutes a time was a long time for you!

runsarah said...

Love them all! I like cut outs as long as they cover the bra strap. My favourite jeans are 7's by far - they fit me so well!

Pam said...

Cute clothes! What a fun day of shopping. I love Yahtzee too... I once had 4 Yahtzees in one game, it was awesome.

Andrea@WellnessNotes said...

I haven't played Yahtzee in a long time. Now I want to play! :)

Love the clothes; very cute! And I agree, subtle cutouts are nice.

Tyler said...

I love the little cut outs! They are great if done tastefully. My favorite jeans are Editors from Express. They are more for dressy jean occasions but totally make an outfit look super pulled together. I haven't quite ventured into the designer jean department. Perhaps when I rock out some Mary Kay I'll take a peek! Congrats on the run also!

Anne Marie said...

I love the dresses! They are adorable!

Mica said...

I don't own any designer jeans. I've tried on a couple pairs, and I just feel muffin top-y. Eventually, I'll probably invest in a pair. For now, Banana Republic supplies all of my denim.

I had no idea cut-outs were the new thing in dresses this summer. I think they're cute on the ones you bought, but I could see how the style could get overdone.

And yahtzee? I've never played it!

OMG i am so jealous of all of your buys!!! i am obsessed with the dress w/ the denim bottom & the bow on the front. sooo cute. I think cutouts are ADORABLE if they are subtle (& not skanky!! ew..)
i loove board games- not so much yahtzee but say scrabble and i'm in for sure!

biz319 said...

You are such a fashion diva! All those dresses are completely you. I hope you post your mac n cheese recipe, I know everyone makes it different.

I almost always get at least one yahtzee every game :D
