The Weekend: Shopping, Peer Pressure, 8 miles and Mom's Day

So looking back, my weekend was pretty eventful! Here's what's up!

Friday night me, Kaylie and Ashlee (love these girls) went up to Park City. We had a successful shopping trip and had a good number of laughs. First stop was J Crew, oh man we love it there, already planning a trip back. My favorite part was when Kaylie and I walked out of the dressing room with the same outfit on haha, no joke!
Then once we had managed to enter every store, my lovely friends discovered that I don't have my ears pierced. And that's when the peer pressure began....yes. I don't have my ears pierced and I'm 21 haha. So here's Ash convincing me to get my ears pierced.

And here I am giving into peer pressure...

Let's just say it didn't work out at Claires, but that didn't stop Kaylie and Ashlee, they were able to find a piercing place that was open late...but first we had to eat haha. We went to the famous Davanzas, my most favorite place!!! I recommend it! Super cheap but super mmmm

 Next we were off to the piercing place oh boy..what an adventure. You can tell by my expression that I was a tad bit terrified of the neighborhood this place was in and the place itself hahah

We were going to get it done until I was told that they put a little ring in instead of a stud...anddddd that's not really my style, I prefer the fake diamond studs haha. So we left without my ears pierced, but it definitely was the funniest adventure! And who knows maybe there's a reason it didn't work out, maybe I'll win the Guinness book world record for oldest woman without pierced ears!

So if you didn't know, I am running my first half marathon on June 9th and have been trying to train for the past few weeks. On Saturday it was my long run day and I was supposed to run 8 miles and...not to toot my own horn but...I freaking did it! Toot toot! I am so proud of myself because I didn't think I could do it. The first few miles were hard but with the help of my Clif Shot Blocks (best invention ever) I was able to pull through! Can't wait for the 9 miles this weekend!

And as we all know, Mother's Day was on Sunday. I think it's amazing to have a day to celebrate the people who sacrifice anything for you, guide you through the world and love you unconditionally. I love my mommy! Being an only child I am super close to my parents, we're each others' best friends and I am so grateful for that! Love you mom!
Since my mom has been converted to the iPhone, I thought it was only appropriate to get her the cutest case ever made. My mom loves elephants so it's perfect, super cute huh?!
Oh and look at my cute dress I wore, just thought I'd share :) Got it from Hautelook.com, I would recommend you sign up so you can get amazing deals on clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc!

Well that was my weekend, I hope yours was good! Can't wait to see what this weekend brings...in fact it's Tuesday and I am already wishing for Friday...typical. xo

    Me and my friend have done that before...then we flipped a coin to see who would buy it (b/c we both wear the same size!)
