Yup, you get two posts from me today. Lucky you! 🙂
I was tired this morning. Like, I wish I could sleep a couple of more hours tired. While I feel way more confident in my teaching abilities this year, I feel like I’m drowning just a little bit in trying to get more used to the routine. What this means is that tired Ashley = comfortable outfits. I finally hopped on the maxi dress/skirt trend. I always avoided it because I wasn’t tall, but I’ve definitely been missing out.
And the winner of the Lindi’s Delicate Edge Giveaway is…

Thanks to all you participated. It’s fun giving and getting some blogger/reader love.
I write a lot about super happy things on here, but I would hate for you all to think my life is sunshine and roses (although it is pretty damn good). There has been something heavy weighing on my mind lately. I’ve gotten a couple (which is frankly, a couple too many) comments about how “skinny” I am. While it would flatter most people, it actually really bothers me. For one, I don’t see myself that way (body image issues, much?) and two, I work my ass off for it. I run a lot to prep for races and eat pretty healthy. Yeah, I eat crap every once in a while, but I physically feel better when I don’t. Well, that and I still immediately equate what I eat to miles run (which is really unhealthy).
Now, before you go all “BOO HOO! People are commenting on how good you look. You POOR thing.” I’m not so much complaining about that, I’m more concerned about how women focus on each others bodies (myself included). Can’t we all just love each other (and ourselves for who we are)?
What are your thoughts?
