New Shoes!

So this weekend as I was strolling down 3rd street these little shoes caught my eyes - Fuschia shoes? They go with EVERYTHING. I was wearing a cute little  muted jcrew casual dress and decided to wear these with my outfit all day. A little pop of color goes a long way. Not only are Tom extremely comfortable ( I feel like I am walking on clouds) but they give back as well. Another win win in my book. 

Buy them here. oh these are next on my list.

First Name Theophilus, Last Name London

Promoting is latest album Timez Are Weird These Days (and they are) Theophilus showed off his hip hop electro skillz and dominated his show at El Rey. His musical style is one part hipster and the other rapper. That is one winning combo if you ask me. The album even has a song with Sara Quin from Tegan on the song "Why Even Try." It is FAB. Get Familiar.

    {This was my first time to attend a concert at the El Rey Theatre and what a wonderful venue! It is set up much like the Music Box except I can WALK to it. Yes, I said WALK. I will be going to every concert here from now on out}

Lovin' this combo

Yes and Yes.

“I may still not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren’t covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I’ll return to a person I love. So, that’s the dream I’m working on.”
- Amber Morely.

Delta Spirit

 "On March 13, Delta Spirit will release their third LP on Rounder Records. The self-titled follow up to 2010′s History From Below was recorded in an old church in Woodstock, NY. Frontman, Matt Vasquez, describes the album as follows: “We found the sound that we’ve been looking for, that we’ve been growing into, and as soon as we hit on it, we ran with it. That’s why it’s a self-titled record, so we could connect our identity with what we think Delta Spirit is”. A single from the forthcoming album is due later this month. In the mean time, the band posted the endearing video teaser below. Also, in case you missed it in the Fall, Delta Spirit is offering their two EPs, I Think I’ve Found It and The Waits Room for free digital download. See the link below. "

Download their new EP here.

Check out a gpa reviewing the new album - beer in hand. 

Tour starts in March and they will be in Los Angeles May 11th at the Music Box in LA, who is coming with me? Oh need convincing? Listen to Bushwick Blues. It is one mighty song.

Your name only matters if its Blue Ivy...

Jay Z has a song new for his little baby...listen below.

Jay-Z Glory (Ft. B.I.C) by illRoots

"Baby I paint the sky blue. My greatest creation was you."

Training starts TODAY

ok, ok I know I am way behind in my training since my first half is in less than a month and I haven't ran since  TX.I was sick this weekend and was not able to run AT ALL. So my plan so I don't kill myself during the half is run 6 miles this weekend, then 8, then 10 then 13.1. BOOM. I can do it. Just pray I don't get sick again.

Anyone have any other advice on what to do for conditioning before or after the race? As well as what to eat?What to wear?

On another running note, I have kept up with my daily mile widget. In fact, I absolutely love it because it keeps me accountable. Also, since my favorite running buddy lives in Texas it allows us to see what each other is running and chat about it with each other. I ended this year with running 68 miles (started counting 10/21) so if you do that math I technically ran 1.13 miles from October to December. In 2012, I want to average that to 2 or 2.5 (lofty goal) miles a day. I know I can do that especially since I have my two halfs this year on top of a few runs I will do locally. That is over 60 miles a month compared to my previous 68 spread over 2 months+. Eh. maybe 1.5 a day? :)

It's going to be a great running year. I just know it.

Happy Running Everyone!

Youth Rescue Mission

Youth Rescue Mission is the music of three brothers and their big sister who all have migrated from Montana to Seattle. Bound by blood and music, their songs forge their way to the top of musical mountain tops where their voices ring out, often telling stories of the past that weave unapologetically through old wounds, past betrayal and a family caught trying to find its way. Hannah Williams leads brothers Daniel, Luke, and Jesse in precise harmonies and the result is a sound as unique and charming as you’d imagine. Every word every lyric is so personal. Absolutely stunning music.
