This post is a little bit of everything. A little bit of me, a little bit of clothes and fashion and a little bit of food.
Today (a rainy day), I ran the Knott’s Berry Farm 10K Coaster Run with my friends. We had a fun run and that’s all we could ask for. I’m not a fast runner by any means, I run slow and steady. But my pace is getting better, a lot better. I ran 6.2 miles in 62 minutes (better time than my last 10K last month).
Hooray for improvement!
I will be doing a race recap in the next few days. After this morning’s race, I am one 10K race away from reaching my goal of running three 10K (30K) before I turn 30.
After the race, we were hungry for our post-run breakfast. Since it was cold, we were craving for something warm in our belly.
I reached out on twitter asking which bakery served a bowl of steel cut oats. After a few responses, we headed out to Corner Bakery.
I was happy with my huge bowl of oats and all the side toppings they included. My toppings included brown sugar, walnuts, almonds, dried cranberries and dried currants. If only they had coconuts too.
Even though it wasn’t steel cut oats, their oatmeal was still good and really creamy, it’s made with skim milk and a dash of salt.
I also ordered eggs on the side. Two plates for this hungry girl.
My running buddies, Cher and Lora ordered lunch plates and devoured their food as well.
We got separated during the race and it was fun to hear about their race experience, we all had fun stories during the race.
We all agreed, the flooded tunnel was not fun 😦
Cher lives in L.A. and Lora lives in San Diego. So I had a mini-slumber party last night at my house before the race. It was great spending time with the girls this weekend.
Whenever it rains, it never fails that I start daydreaming about being somewhere warm. Somewhere, where it’s tropical, like my wedding venue. I thought about the wedding a lot during the run. I thought of all the fun clothes I get to wear and how good the sun will feel against my skin.
The dress code for our wedding is -> Beach Chic
What is beach chic? We gave our wedding guests some ideas on what is appropriate for our beach wedding.
Women = dressy sun/summer dresses, dressy sandals
Men = linen suits no jacket required, button down breathable shirt, dressy sandals, khakis and colored shirts
I’ve also heard the term “sand between the toes elegant“ to describe a beach wedding attire.
For the Women
Dresses worn to the wedding should be relaxed, but not too casual. The venue will be airy and your beautiful dress will catch the ocean breeze. I suggest looking for natural fabrics in vibrant colors.
I really really love these colors. Coral + teal accessories.
For the Men
