Shop Till You Drop – Annapolis Style

Today started out innocently enough. I wanted to get some socks at the Expo. I don’t have any real ‘running’ socks, and these were all they had so I figured I would try them out.

I was excited to see Gracie’s Gear at the expo today! I have been wanting to get some products from Gracie’s for a while now, since I have been reading so much great stuff about it in the blog world! I got to meet Gracie and she is so cute and sweet and very pregnant! I loved chatting with her. I decided to get a teal bra, the black/pink tank top and a pair of capri’s. They are all so cute and comfortable. I can’t wait to use them! I have been running for a while, and have signed up for all these races, but I don’t have a lot of real running gear. I love stocking up on awesome stuff at these expos!

We stopped in the Annapolis Running Shop while downtown today. I had to get a shirt to represent. I love the back of the shirt. Ha-ha. ARS = Annapolis Running Shop. I had quite the time deciding between colors, but I like the green and yellow combination!

I got these two pieces of jewelry. I love the earrings! They are so much fun. I also got the ‘Love’ necklace, since it’s in the shape of the Philadelphia ‘Love Park’ statue! Just some fun necklace and earrings!

I picked up these OKA b. flip flops. The color is called Pineapple! I love it. They are SUPER comfortable. Me likey!

We picked up a little treat for Jackson at The Black Dog. I hope he likes it! We miss being away from him this weekend, so we couldn’t come home to him empty-handed!

I also saw this shirt and thought it was freakin’ hilarious! I bought it for Boyf. He likes it a lot!

So, I bought a fair amount of stuff, but there was ALOT more I could have bought but didn’t. I figure when you are travelling, the shopping is part of the trip! I will probably by more stuff tomorrow!

Historic Annapolis

I went this morning to the Zooma Expo/packet pick up. I already have my packet, but I wanted to check out the deals on gear and stuff. Recap on what I purchased to come! I have never been to the Navy Stadium  before. It was really big!mas pics 776

Post expo, boyf and I headed to downtown historic Annapolis. It was such a beautiful day. Not too hot, with a nice breeze. Beautiful!

I followed these little ducks around for a bit!

Such a beautiful day down by the water!

I snacked on a mini luna s’mores bar while we walked around

We stopped for lunch at O’Brien’s Oyster Bar & Restaurant. They had outside seating by the water, so it was really nice!

I was in the mood for a burger, but also in a mood for some more crab cakes. So Boyf and I got an order of mini burger sliders and mini crab cake sliders. We split them, and it was the perfect amount!

Post lunch we walked around some more and stopped by the State House. There is so much beautiful history down here. They have done a fantastic job of preserving the historical look.

Then we hit up the Annapolis Ice Cream Company. I got 1 scoop chocolate chip ice cream with sprinkles in a cone! It was totally melting and I had to eat it quick, but it hit the spot!

Stay tuned for my purchases!

Bring Your Own Barney Butter

Breakfast this morning was included in our room rate! I LOVE that! It was really good. His & hers plates:

mas pics 776 mas pics 777

I brought my own Barney Butter (BYOBB) and I hooked it up with a little banana action. Glorious!

mas pics 778 mas pics 779

This breakfast buffet was intense. It had a waffle making station which is pictured above, I only made a quarter of the waffle maker, perfect size! It also had a massive toaster, breads, bagels, mini cinnamon rolls and muffins, along with eggs and sausage!

 mas pics 780 mas pics 781

There was also a cereal and yogurt and oatmeal section. I was very pleased with all the choices.

mas pics 782 mas pics 783

The buffet doesn’t open until 7:00 am tomorrow, and since that’s when my race starts, I had a problem! I asked the lady when is the earliest I could get down there for a bagel or something. She said she would be there at 5:30 and it would be fine for me to take anything then. I still took a little to-go bag just in case. Another banana, some cereal, milk, yogurt and granola. I know its not the BEST decision to have have dairy before my race, and I hope I get a bagel, but I took this stuff just in case! I love the little to-go baggie!
