I had several work related classes and meetings to attend today, but after they were all done, I took a couple of hours to run some errands for myself.

On my drive this morning I noticed how the sunlight was shining through this mirror charm a friend gave me for my birthday.

Lunch was on the run and I totally forgot to get a picture of the sandwich (I was starving and practically inhaled it in one bite), but it was a teeny tiny, boring chicken 1/2 of a chicken salad sandwich and a fruit cup.  Thank goodness I packed a protein bar and a bottle of H2O in my bag this morning before I left out!

I have fallen in love with a new store, but today I was determined to stay focused…go in only for what I needed…check out… and leave.  Period.

Out of all the energy gels and such I’ve tried, this Strawberry Gu Chomp is my favorite, so I stocked up.

I also bought a few of these chocolate flavored gels to see how they tasted.  There’s just something in the name Chocolate Outrage.

I wanted to go here, but I resisted the temptation and kept driving.

But then ……..

I lost all ability to resist.

I didn’t even try to resist.

I intentionally drove right up to the front door.

Look at this…how could I resist?!

Note to self:  You’ve been in the Vera store too long if the sales lady asks you four times if you need any help with your choices.

While I luv luv my big Vera Bag I’ve been carrying for a couple of years now, I’ve found I wanted something just a little smaller with a cross body shoulder strap.

It took me a while to decide, okay.

But don’t worry I found the one.

Then I celebrated my purchase(s) with a Vanilla Soy Latte and Pumpkin Scone (I only ate 1/2).  🙂

Buttercup.  Isn’t it so cute and Fall-y and buttery?

Oh!!! I almost forgot!  On a totally different note, one of my recent posts Coupons for Soldiers was featured on BlogHer!

Go check it out!

Happy Weekend!  Get out and run!
