Big-Girl Sweats

As a person who loves clothes, I refuse to accept the existence of sweatpants.  I own a pair of $5 sweatpants that I got for working out in from walmart, but that is the only time that I will wear them.  However, there are days where all I want to do is curl up in something warm and cozy.  This was one of those days.  My ten year old sister joined her school's running club, the precursor to the middle school cross country team.  The group of 3rd to 5th graders have been training all month for a 5k run that took place this morning.  Since my sister is only 10, she had to have an adult-figure run with her.  My mom didn't feel up to it, so that feel to me.  We woke up to a lovely 40 degree day, complete with clouds and wind and a bit of rain.  Needless to say, by the end of the race all I wanted was to be warm and dry.

I didn't do too badly with the run, considering I've been "training" for it for all of a week.  I was pretty tired by mile 2, which is where I usually stop my own workout, but if I was on my own I probably could have made it farther, since I wouldn't have been confined to the stride of someone half my size.  I'm not even tired now.

This shirt fits the description of sweats, but without making me feel like a total bum.  It's a men's flannel shirt that a friend gave me.  I attempted french braids, and for once they actually look decent, from the front at least.  The back's a little sloppy, but I don't have wings.

Also, after not being home all week I finally got a chance to catch up on all my favorite blogs, and stumbled upon a new gem.  This girl is incredibly pretty.  I was originally very tempted to shoot her an email, asking her for some makeup tips.  After a big of reading, though, I discovered that she recently posted a makeup tutorial!  I was bored, so I tried it, and considering my drugstore makeup kit, I think it worked pretty well.  I really just wanted to try the eye part, but why pass up a good excuse to wear some lipstick?  So now I'm lazing in my room in full makeup.  But at least I'm warm and dry!
