It was at Rachael's house, and she chose to do a theme of her favorite wines. She had about six different wines to share. I think my favorite was the Kendall Jackson Summation, a dry red blend. The dry reds are always my favorites! You can always tell when I've been drinking wine, because my teeth tend to get a purplish tint (so classy):

Using that foot pod tool a couple of days ago worked perfectly! I found the correct calibration number, and it's very close to what my treadmill reads. And because the calibration was based on TONS of my runs (via GPS), I think it's very accurate. My long run pace is 9:38/mi, so I set the treadmill at 6.4 mph, and my splits were very even. The tenth mile, I kept bumping up the speed to get done, though.
I started watching American Horror Story on Netflix while running, and that's been interesting. I love scary movies, but I'm not usually into supernatural stuff, so I wasn't sure what I would think. I really like it so far, though! There are a couple of seasons, so it should get me through quite a few more treadmill runs.
I was feeling pretty crappy all day long, thanks to the wine last night. I was really craving homemade macaroni and cheese for dinner (one of my favorite comfort foods), so I made that and I'm sure I went way over my PointsPlus today, even with the 10-mile run. We ran a few errands in the afternoon, but then I changed into some sweats and lounged around for the rest of the day.
Yesterday, I got a text from my mom saying that she was at a garage sale that had a ton of Victoria's Secret clothing. I love VS clothes because they are so cozy to lounge around in. They're super expensive, however, so I always look for them at garage sales.
I went to the sale my mom told me about, and I was shocked at just how much this woman had. She works at Victoria's Secret, and she told me her daughter is very spoiled! The daughter had been a size 4/small, until she went to college last year and gained some freshman weight, so she was getting rid of all the smaller clothes. Lucky for me, that's my size!
I bought five hoodies, three pairs of jeans, one pair of sweatpants, a couple pairs of pajama bottoms, a few long-sleeved t-shirts, and a couple of other tops. I didn't even make a dent in the amount of clothes she had, either. I can't imagine how much she must have paid for all this stuff new, even with an employee discount. The hoodies retail for $45-50 alone, and I paid $66 for everything. I'm excited for the weather to feel more fall-like, so I can get cozy in my hoodies and long sleeve tee's.
Since tomorrow is officially the last day of the kids' summer vacation (they have open house on Tuesday, and school starts Wednesday), I think we're going to take them to the water park at one of the Metroparks. The weather looks good for it; I just hope it's not packed because it's a holiday. Anyone have big plans tomorrow?
