Call me Rainbow Brite

End of last week I was in Tall Mom Lab Product testing mode...Next up Sugoi clothes and Thorlo Experia socks.. With the bright salmon-orangey top, day glow yellow socks and start traffic green shoes, I threw out my mathcy-matchy ways. End result...Rainbow Brite. OK there is a reason why I stick to my matching rules... Luckily we were well hidden on our training hill.

My run today was NOTHING to talk about so I opted to post photos of funky outfit day instead... Happy Monday!! I am home on 'vacation' Muscle Man's guest leaves tomorrow...so they are in quality male bonding mode (Sports Center, Video games, batting cages and guy movies). Once Easton wakes we are off to shop for Daddy's birthday on the 19th! I am thinking of letting Blaine pick out the gift, will See how that goes..

Resting after the first hill sprint...Not ready to have my picture taken...
I did not know that I was in the frame...LOL.. Our boys crack me up!! they love to run up and down the hill and give me a heart attack. On this day they were throwing rocks down the STEEP hill... Oh the gray hairs that come with raising BOYS..
More details about the top and shorts soon..I like to wear gear a few times, wash and pull at the seams before I do my FULL report.. Check out the Sugoi website HERE. The Fizz tank is on sale and the Moxie shorts are ADORABLE!
Muscle Man's turn for hills... The Little Studs were released from the stroller.. Look to the left, we currently train in a development that has not been built on...soon that will change.. SAD!! the housing market may keep the progress slow, but the SOLD signs are a BUMMER!!

I'm all about looking like rainbow bright! The brighter my clothes the less likely someone will run me over =).

That is some kind of brightness LOL.

And being a mom of more than one boy is definitely hazardous to your hair color LOL.

I think that's a great outfit! Cute shorts!

Love the family photos... esp. the one where you're in the background and didn't realize you'd be in the shot. CUTE!
