Yeah for good shopping! When I was in LOFT buying jeans, a sales lady who wasn't helping me started chatting with me about how terrible jean shopping is. I didn't want to say that I was enjoying it, because everything was fitting, because she was trying to empathize with me! I love Ann Taylor too, but LOFT used to be easier to find around here, and a little less damaging on my wallet! Next time I get to the premium outlets I'll have to check out their regular store there.
My Ball book of Preserving has a recipe for Basil Banana Pepper Jelly in it. I'd be happy to post it, if you are interested, but if it's not something that is appealing to you, no problem. It's not really something I'd consider making myself, but thought I'd put it out there for you!
Good luck with your Couch to 5 K. I've thought about it, but I can't make the time commitment on a daily basis, since we don't have a treadmill at home. I used to do yoga in the local studio, and after I had my oldest, bought a few videos to try at home. Post 10 lb. baby c-section stomach muscles and the videos I had really didn't go well together! So, this past year I bought a super-easy video that I like that is more of a warm-up than anything. I'm going to ease into it hopefully on an almost daily basis, and when I'm ready, step up to my older videos. The easy one is Rodney Yee's AM Yoga. It doesn't get into sun salutes or anything, but is a nice 20 minute morning refresher. I do better in a structured class than at home, but I am pretty sure I can squeeze this one in if I make the effort to.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
