monday mingling

this is the one picture that i took this weekend.
 i hope you are all thinking, those shoes are really old looking, i bet she works out a lot.
i don't. but i try. i got two runs in last week and the week before and i'm going to try and twist paris's arm to get three in this week, if our schedules work out. even running just twice a week has made such a difference in my mood and energy that i am hoping we can keep it up!

this week i have the opportunity to co-host the monday mingling link-up so i hope you will stop by some of these lovely blogs and introduce yourselves!

The Boots Parade is a lifestyle blog documenting my life in Costa Rica. Topics of my blog include my job as a middle school English teacher, my time in Costa Rica with my boyfriend, my puppy Rocco, and any adventures I encounter on the way!
