Plaid Modified

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a great week. I want to share a few things.  For the last two months, I have starting running. Prior to having kids I ran, but I must say now, as a mom, I love the 30 to 45 minutes that I get for myself. Even when I am so tired, after I run I feel like I have so much energy. My brothers and I use the Nike + app, which allows us to provide challenges to each other and win medals. This is fabulous because I am only a little competitive.(Sure!) My poor brothers are the most laid back people and think I am a little crazy with all my smack talk, but man has it motivated me. If you don't have a running partner this app is the next best motivator. So, if you wonder where I have been, it's running like a champ.  In two months, I have run a little over 100 miles. Next, I am excited to say that I have been nominated for Voice Bok's Top 50 Moms Who Blog About Fashion & Beauty Contest. The blogs that are in this contest are fabulous, so I am excited to be included.  I would love for you to vote for my blog and you can vote by clicking below the icon, where it says vote here. You can vote once a day and the contest lasts for 38 days. Now for this post, plaid is a trend continuing this fall. I love plaid, and when I came across this little number at T.J Max, I knew it was for me. It actually seems the plaid was tie dyed with bleach. This would be a great DIY with you husbands old plaid shirt in the closet.
