Happy Friday, everyone! Today I would like to share with you a little family news plus some shopping in Bucket Lists, Buckaroos and Browsing!
As I watched William Shatner (Captain Kirk) actually go up in space Wednesday at 91 years of age, I decided to commemorate a milestone in my own family.
Those of you who have been regular readers of this blog know that Mr. B is quite the runner…even on a bad knee.
He has run in memorable races from Alaska to Israel, and last summer decided he needed to add rim to rim at the Grand Canyon….which he did last week.
Mr. B is in his sixties and has been featured on a running podcast. He has also become known as the older man who runs with a retired Marine and a bone on bone, arthritic bad knee!
I told his running story in the past in this post….which was sponsored at the time and he does still use that product most days of the week.
He’s had a touch of hypothermia in a race and always pushes himself past limits the rest of us would not even consider.
BUT! It brings him immeasurable joy that far exceeds the pain.
Without the Marine, he might still be in the canyon. But the training and encouragement of this incredible friend led my husband to complete the journey through the canyon right at 10 hours.
The smile on his face says it all! This was a bucket list achievement checked off with a smile.
It should come as no surprise then, that our three year old grandson was also spotted last week riding an actual Longhorn steer! He is cut from the same cloth.
Now you know why I always say that I have an active, daily prayer life!
Leigh Ann and I ran into Chico’s last week for a quick browsing experience….we were in a hurry.
Since we did not do full blown shopping, I decided to just mention this within a post and not make it an actual Leigh & Me Shopping adventure.
Leigh Ann liked the Quilted Reversible Vest and would have tried it in petite if there had been one in store.
I tried this Status Jacquard Sweater on for readers who love wearing black and maybe want a fun option in a top. It is very pretty and you can see the shimmer in the online image.
Check out more black tops at Chico’s here. Very nice selections for those who wear black.
I promise we will return soon for a full blown Chico’s shopping trip of new collection pieces.
AS THE SUN SETS…
While Mr. B was running the canyon, I was enjoying a beautiful sunset at home. That brings me joy…not a run- on- the -edge- of- a- cliff kind of girl.
I am also not likely to join Jeff Bezos and soar into space!
But, let me ask you…Do you have a bucket list? Are there experiences on it that you are yet to accomplish? Please share…would love to hear those stories.
I will be here tomorrow with Jennifer for Would You Wear It!
KEEP SMILING, EVERYONE!
