I don’t wear a lot of jewelry.  Always my wedding set and usually a pair of earrings, and if I’m dressed up maybe a right-hand ring too.  Necklaces?  Rarely.  But I’ve had my eye on one for a little while that I’ve really been wanting.  It’s at endureshop.com.  Specifically, this one:

I just love the simplicity of it.  The only problem is I’m way too cheap to spend $52 on a necklace.  I mean, come on, that’s a race fee!  Or a big chunk of a pair of shoes!
I mentioned my friend Shelly’s etsy shop before last year when I bought some earrings from her.  I knew she made custom necklaces, so I asked her if she could make one for me that just said “run”.  She was more than happy to do it!  She even made a few for me to pick from.
I chose the one on the lower left.  I received it in the mail on Monday, and I absolutely adore it!  I’ve worn it every day since.  You know you want one too.  What better way to fashionably show your pride in what we all love to do???

Three Things Thursday

1.   I am HATING myself for not running RnR St. Louis this weekend.  I am a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan, and in case you missed it, they are in the World Series.  Even though they will be playing in Texas this weekend, I can guarantee that city will still be rocking.  It would have been a heck of a good time.

2.   Everybody needs earrings for Halloween, and my friend Shelly makes some awesome ones.  You should totally check out her etsy site.  She makes way more than Halloween stuff (Anything you could possibly want, really.  Even custom stuff.), but I’m loving these right now.  I bought a pair of each!  (And a pair of the spidery ones for my sister!)

“Canaima” – For the obviously Halloweeny look

“Jack” – For the more subtle fall look

3.   I started Christmas shopping this week.  I bought two things, and they are for people I usually have NO idea how to shop for.  I always say I’m gonna get an earlier start on the shopping, but I think this year is the first year I’ve actually done it.  I’m very happy to have two of my most difficult ones crossed off my list already!
