Today is a very special day in my little corner of the world. My husband, Jered, is the big 3-0! Gosh, I remember being in elementary school and thirty seemed ancient! Now that it's creeping up on me, I am like heck no--I am not old! I need to take a moment and make a list of activities that I want to check off before I turn 30.

Jered had a big goal on his before 30 bucket list: to run the full OKC Memorial Marathon. For the past seventeen weeks, each Saturday (and other times throughout the week) he trained relentlessly. Some weeks were easier than others, obviously. I continued to support him with words of encouragement and eating Italian food every Friday night preparing for his long run the next morning (hey, I am not complaining about that). He kicked off his birthday week in style by waking up at 4:00 a.m. for marathon prep. Watching him cross the finish line brought tears to my eyes. It was so cool watching him accomplish a huge goal like this! I keep telling my friends that I feel like a tiny puffer pigeon. I am so proud of this man that I am lucky enough to call my husband!

Saturday morning it was chilly, overcast, with on and off sprinkles. Talk about terrible marathon conditions, holy moly! The local weathermen here in OKC blew this forecast, they called for perfect running conditions. Jered was less than impressed! I reached in my closet for this great sweater (I always wear a nude tank under it) from LOFT. I paired the sweater with skinny jeans, rain boots, and a trench coat. I must say, I like it more with this neon pink buffalo check skirt from J. Crew. I purchased this skirt earlier this year; it flew off shelves. I knew I had to have it in my life!

I shared this textured shirttail sweater earlier this spring on my Instagram. I have it in two colors (whisper white and orchid breeze). Right now it's on sale for less than $40! Since it's a tad longer, I decided to knot it up on one side to give it a more fitted look (I am wearing a size medium for reference). This top is so versatile, I can even see myself reaching for it in early fall.

If you are looking for a great nude chunky heel, you really should consider ordering these from Target. They are less than $30 and also come in black. They run true to size. However, the first time you wear them, they might be a little uncomfortable. I find them more comfy with each wear. You will have the comments rolling in, and everyone will be asking--where did you get those shoes? If you feel like being a pal, you can tell them what a great deal you got on them!
