Getting Lost, Floral Pants, & A Giveaway!

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm linking up with Lissette & Caitlyn for their Just Because Link Up!

1 - Getting Lost

Last night Charlie & I headed out for a run because of the heatwave of 55 degrees sweeping through Rochester. We headed out on a route that we're familiar with, but then I got impatient & didn't want to wait for the stop lights. I decided to circle around, assuming that I could just cut up a side street back onto the main road. WRONG! Elmwood runs at an angle AWAY from Monroe! My quick 3 miler turned into a 4.5 miler and ended with a totally unexpected hill. It was a great run and I felt challenged, so I guess it was just God's way of pushing me - but OMG it was scary for awhile. I had never been on that part of Elmwood and had no idea where I might intersect with a familiar street. I have never been so happy to see Clinton Ave in my life!

2 - Floral Pants

I have decided that I need a pair of floral pants for spring. I have been loving them in magazines, but that wasn't enough to persuade me to buy them. But yesterday, I saw a student walking down the hall in a pair & she looked too cute! We're about the same size, so I am confident I'd look cute in them too. She was sweet enough to tell me that they are from Kohl's & even added that I should definitely get a pair because I always have the cutest outfits. She's not even one of my students, so she wasn't just kissing up either!  

floral jeans from J.Crew that I can't afford but I'm still obsessed with

3 - Giveaway!

Today I am hosting my first giveaway! I am a huge fan of the Gap & their spring line is out of control! It is full of pastel colored goodness. I've already talked about how I love my skimmers & Ella is always showing off her sweet duds from Baby Gap. So, to spread the love I'm giving away a $25 gift card to the Gap!

  1. So cute that you're getting fashion tips from students!

  2. How sweet of her to say that! I've wondered if I'd look nice in print pants, but I'm not sure I would...I suppose I'll just have to try and see someday!
    By the way, with those link-up things, is it something you're invited to do? Or do you ask? I've always wondered.

  3. So cute! I love your getting lost story! Sounds like something that would happen to me!

    If I got the GAP gift card, I would go buy some of their skinnies!
