Monday's Tres Tidbits

Okay, okay, because you guys asked to see it, here's my new purse! Pretty, right? I like the green -- very holiday appropriate, huh? If you were here, I would let you stroke it. It's very soft.So, this evening, I picked up my holiday cards from Walgreens. After making Scooter sit several times in front of the Christmas tree, with no cute resulting pictures, I ended up going with a pic of him chewing on the Santa hat. Part of me wanted to use a pic of all three of us, but there's not a great one in existence (either the lighting is bad, Scooter is only partially in the picture, either my husband or I am making a face, or we're holding beer -- not really what you want to express on a holiday card), and I didn't want to try and force a friend over to our house to take a few dozen new pics of us front of our tree just so I have a pretty card (but I did think of it). Thus, here is the image that will grace the Jess family Christmas card this year:Cute, right? But aside from managing the Christmas card and fondling my new purse, I also got a run in this evening, as promised. Again, like Saturday's run, I felt slooooooow. The numbers aren't too bad, but they do reflect a little ass dragging in my 3 miles:

1: 10:08
2: 10:09
3: 10:15

Total Time: 30:39

I need a good run to revive me: the past week has felt a little *blah* in the running department -- maybe all that energy that I've been devoting to holiday shopping, decorating, baking, and card ordering has zapped the energy usually reserved for running.

Oh well, I'm gonna go hug my purse now.

Love the new purse... you're husband is pretty great!

J~mom said...

Oh no..no..no...people can't touch your purse. The oils will accumulate and make the beautiful green dirty. And that would be just so wrong. It's gorgeous! You lucky girl!

My family just did Christmas pictures when I was home this last week too. We always do some normal ones and a few wacky ones. How wacky? You'll have to wait and see...

Mendy said...

I'm sooo jealous!! (in a good way) Love the new purse, and I like it's classy look.

Great getting a run in, in these hectic crazy holidays. Just getting one in and in great times, is something to be proud of.

Mendy said...

BTW - Scooter's pic is adorable! He'll be the perfect Xmas card!

Marcy said...

That pic of Scooter is totally card-worthy, very CUTE!!

Love the purse!!

Sorry about the a$$ dragging run. It sounded good, but I know you want it to feel good. Hang in there, it will come.

David said...

Scooter is one cool pup. I'm glad he's chewing on the santa hat, and not the new snugly purse.

Margo said...

Pretty! Love Scooter's pic on the Christmas card too!

cute picture, I think it's perfect.

I did an interval run tonight and it was a lot of fun- it may help spice up your run a little bit if that's what you're looking for!

Happy Running!

Excellent run, and if you didn't have to worry about sweating on that luscious suede, you could run with the new Coach bag. :)

mmmmmmmm, expensive leather.....

Paul said...

Nice bag and Scooter is teh cutest!

ws said...

personally, I prefer pockets rather than a purse. I hope hubby doesn't get jealous that you are snuggling with your purse instead of with him.

Jes said...

Wow. I love that purse.

Wes said...

Holy crap, Jess! Seven seconds of ass dragging?!?! Were you carrying that purse on the run? LOL...

LOVE THAT PURSE! OMG! I think I would just hold it in my lap and stroke it all day. Beautiful!

Great pic of Scooter, too :)

Amy said...

Oh, I love the purse. Very sassy.

Laurel said...

Haha, "fondling my new purse". Nice!

I love the pic of Scooter. I think it really is perfect.

Betsy said...

Am I alone in thinking that your Christmas card photo should be of that bag? Because it is freaking adorable.

Laura N said...

Happy belated anniversary, and what a cute bag! That's a sweet picture of Scooter and will make a fun Christmas card. You are so on top of things this holiday, girl.

A slow run is better than no run. At least you're out there!
