Your and Paul's legs in the photo make an optical illusion that those are your legs since you can see yourself in the mirror. I did a double take! Love the wreath, makes me wish I lived near a beach!

Great timing, I'm catching up on all my blog readings right now. Today was my last day of classes and I only have a couple finals that shouldn't be too harsh next week. Hope you have a great finish to school and hopefully we both can pick up blogging over the break!

Those decorations are insane. I'm glad you showed pictures otherwise I wouldn't have had such a good laugh at those. Have a fantastic Thanksgiving with 'normal' decorations ;)

I'm jealous this is your last semester. How are you going to celebrate? Some days are definitely slower than others, running with my boyfriend sometimes help me increase my pace to match his (he's a lot faster than me naturally). I also figured out that starting out too fast tires me out midway through so I try to keep an even pace and run the last .75 mile fast with a sprint at the end. I hope this helps somewhat, the best advice my bf has given me is treat it like it's a race, especially at the end.

Hooray you're back. It sounds like a really interesting topic to do. I love the last image on the left. Buildings always look so interesting in b&w.

Gosh Elise, you're such an inspiration to attempt a marathon. I'm a runner myself and have really enjoyed hearing about your relationship with running over the past couple of months. After reading this post, I have decided 100% that once I graduate college I'm going to train for at least a 1/2 marathon. Thanks for all the insight!

I'm impressed you're working out while in Puerto Rico. I try to work out regularly but the weekends are the hardest because it's a break from the normal grind of the week. I want to get Nike+, but do you have to have Nike shoes to be able to do it? Keep it up! those pushup numbers are seriously impressive.

The movie was incredible. It was so neat to watch you work and see how you do things, especially that tape. I need to get me some of that fast! Thanks for sharing and I can't wait till I have some time to actually make one of your mini-books, they look so special and an awesome-ly unique way to chronicle what's going on during that season.

Wow these turned out so neat! The next time I have some down time I definitely want to try this, it sounds pretty easy to try. I love the brown & orange one, very autumn-ish.

Good luck with all your work! I hope it's productive for both of us.

Ah Elise I loved this! I always stick to the same teas because I'm fearful of trying out new ones and hating them! But I'm definitely going to the try ones that you suggested. Thanks for linking the metal tea infuser, I've been looking for one everywhere and haven't been able to find any for a price I can agree with.

Ha I totally agree with you, Labor Day should be labor free! I spent my day also doing homework. You would think teachers would go out of their way not to assign homework this weekend, but I guess that's asking too much.
