Exer-FIT

I have been eyeing up the Exer-Fit sandals from Earth Footwear for a long time, and recently had the opportunity to try them out for myself! I was so excited when they finally came!

After much debate and confusion, I decided on the washed gold leather. Seriously, it took me WAY too long to decide which color I wanted. I am a HUGE fan of gold, and I figure I can wear these as a ‘sporty’ look, but also wear them with jeans and a plain t-shirt and keep it ‘sexy-casual.’ Haha, these are my looks! I love how jeans and a t-shirt and my exer-fit sandals equal sexy casual in my world.  Sometimes I am  just delusional!

Ok, seriously, I feel like my feet/ankles look fat here. I swear I usually think I have cute feet! Maybe they were just having an ‘off’ day! Either way, I really like the gold.They will look even better when my legs have some color in them from the summer sun!

Exer-Fit Sandals: Skip the gym in this one of-a-kind, calorie-burning, flip-flop! Customize your fit with a stay-put, cross-closure that adjusts to width. Triple density cushioning activates small muscles in your feet so you get an extra workout.

When I read that these babies would strengthen and tone the body while burning extra calories, I was totally intrigued. I mean, now maybe shopping COULD REALLY BE my cardio on off running days! How great is that?!

The toes are positioned 3.7 degrees higher than the heels, and this slight angle increase subtly shifts your weight to get your muscles moving a little differently. Earth Footwear is also made from Biofoam cushioning , which molds to the shape of the foot, absorbing shock with each step. It is also made from 70% recycled material. Gotta get that going green love in there!mas pics 724

These are the Rose Leather ones I was debating between. I initially ordered the Rose in size 7, because I am usually a 7 or 7.5, sometimes a 6.5, it just depends on the shoe. But the pink ones came in and they were WAY too big. Plus I think the white would get way dirty. So I got the gold in a 6, since they only come in whole sizes. They fit pretty good. I think I have short toes.  The gold also goes with more than the pink, so I am even more pumped for them!mas pics 731

Here is Jackson makin’ sure the new goodies are acceptable. I believe he approves! He seems to like the gold ones best too!

I can’t wait to try these out. I put them on when I got them, and walked around a bit, and I could feel the incline, but I want to take Jackson for a long walk in them and see how they feel then! I can’t wait to put them to the test! Thanks Vern! You are the best!  earthbg2 (1)

Coastal Catch Up

I went out to dinner tonight with the bride to be to catch up. I haven’t seen her in forever and it was nice to be able to spend some quality time together. We hit up Coastal Flatts because it is an area favorite. Its close to where we both live, you can’t beat the mojitos and the food is tasty! Winner all around! I do have a nasty habit of finding something I love at a restaurant, and ordering only that from now until the end of time, never trying anything else on the menu. I am a definitely guilty of that at Coastal Flatts. Proof of that is here.

The bride and I started off with classic mojitos, and I may have delved into the aussie rolls. I love that butter! It’s addicting!mas pics 767mas pics 768

Next up is the appetizer round. Blue Crab and Rock Shrimp Fritters. Seriously, that sauce is pure genius!mas pics 766  

I also ALWAYS get the Warm Goat Cheese and Spiced Pecan Salad. It’s pretty small, and after all the other stuff I eat, I just want something small and somewhat healthy, but full of taste. That is exactly what this salad is. I love it!mas pics 769

Dinner turned into additional cocktails outside on the back deck. I had the stoli lemonade something or other, and the bride had the pomegranate margarita! mas pics 770

I love catching up with friends over a fabulous meal! It doesn’t get any better than that mid week!

Jen Lancaster Does It Again!

Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomanical, Self-Centered Smart Ass Phase Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomanical, Self-Centered Smart Ass Phase

I love Jen Lancaster. I loved her previous three books just as much as I loved this book. This book was about Jen’s life growing up. She discusses her family, her school years, moving, and college life, all the while pairing certian outfits which remind her of those specific events. I was so lucky to be able to go to her book signing in DC for this book. I got my picture taken and everything! I had to wait in line behind hundreds of other adoring fans, but it was an awesome day for me! This book was just as fabulous as the previous three. She makes you laugh…A LOT! I also felt I had just a better understanding of her because she makes references to some things from past books. I just felt like we were old buds, reminiscing about the good ol’ days! Seriously, if you haven’t checked out her books yet, you are missing out! She rocks!
