OOTD; diamond eyes

Monday, August 18, 2014

I've rarely had the luxury of long or multiple vacations. But I do live for those brief weekends, more than an hour driving, some sort of adventure, and a few days off work. It's been a long while since I had a reason to escape daily life, so when my Dad invited me to join him on his adventures to Southern Ohio/West Virgina for his second Tough Mudder, I quickly obliged. If you aren't familiar, Tough Mudder is absolute insanity. It's 10+ miles of running and over twenty obstacles. It's the definition of physical fitness and mental determination. As a spectator, you get the opportunity to walk the course and see some of the obstacles and it's pretty crazy out there! My Dad did this Mudder solo -- which is pretty gnarly. Even more gnarly? He finished in less than 2 1/2 hours. His dedication and interest in fitness is very admirable and inspiring. (I type as I eat pizza rolls...)

Plus I got to spend the weekend in West Virgina, lounging around, sight seeing, eating delicious vegetarian food, sippin' on coffees, doing nothin' I had to, and spending quality time with family.

Oh, and I wore this dress one day. It's such a great one, but being so over-the-top pink I've struggled with wearing it often. Like, is it okay to be that pink on a daily basis? Maybe. But sometimes I like to scale it back.
