Oh, Hi. It’s me. Just sitting over here in New York finally enjoying some Spring time weather! It feels like the weather had been cold, rainy and dreary for weeks on end so to really feel the start of Spring over the weekend, reminded me why I love this time of year so much.
While Fall is probably my favorite season, I do love Spring for the happy sunshine and warmer weather, Mother’s Day, my birthday, approaching beach season and….
Flip Flops & Sandals
I love flip flops and sandals weather! If I could get away with wearing them year round I would. The Nike Comfort Thongs with the extra cushioning have become a favorite of mine over the last few years. I am now on my third pair which I recently purchased (on sale!).
They are so comfy and perfect for casually wearing, especially in the hours after you run! They are much easier on the feet because of the cushioning. I don’t know about you but walking around in stiff flip flops, especially after running a bunch of miles, is not fun.
I am equally excited to start wearing these pretty Kate Spade flip flops too. I bought them at the end of last summer (on sale!) so they still feel really new to me. They are actually really comfortable!
Essie Nail Polish Spring Collection
I love when the new Essie colors come out for the season.
I am one of those girls who takes serious time selecting her nail polish color because the name of the polish may make or break my week.
Dior Lip Glow
I love makeup, as you know. Spring colors are always so pretty and fresh! While I wear this Dior Lip Glow year round, it’s really the perfect option for spring and summer because it’s not a heavy color. It’s a lip balm with SPF and a hint of color unique to each person as it reacts to the pigment in your lip.
Lip Glow comes in three shades – a pink, a coral and now a lilac. Check them out here. The lilac Lip Glow is not appearing on the Dior Website so check in a department store or Sephora to find it!

lululemon Spring Colors
I don’t really need a new run swiftly short sleeve shirt but the colors make me so happy when I see them in the stores.
I wear the Run Swiftly short sleeve year round — on the treadmill in the winter and as a perfect layering option — so I would say they are a good investment. If you watch the We Made Too Much section of luluemon’s website, at some point you will find these colors!
Little League Baseball Season
I don’t know Spring without sitting at field 1 or field 4 for my son’s Little League Baseball season. My son has been playing for the same league since he was six years old and it almost happened that this year, he wasn’t going to play for them.
A part of me was really sad, it was like a chapter of his childhood would have been ending and I was not ready for that!
Thankfully, at the last-minute, he made the decision to return which made me happy.
My view from Saturday’s game.
While I have certainly sat in the bleachers over the years complaining about the cold nights, windy games and yes, boring innings which featured broken pitching machines during the early seasons before the kids were old enough to pitch, I am embracing every second now because it is all going by too fast.
When the Islanders make the playoffs, Spring becomes exciting! I dream of the day when the Islanders play a game on my birthday (in June) because that would mean they are in the Stanley Cup Finals. It hasn’t happened since the early 80’s but we are hopeful fans who celebrated a game 1 win from Thursday night with pancakes for breakfast on Friday.
My son is a lucky boy — he talked me into going to IHOP on Friday before school (he went to school late again because of the New York State tests I told you about that we opt out of taking).
This week is back to regular scheduling though and boy is it a packed week of stuff. Work events, Little League games, the start of Passover and Wednesday night’s Islanders playoff game in Brooklyn! I swore I wouldn’t go to a playoff game in Brooklyn yet look at that — I ordered the tickets. Although I am excited, I am trying not to think about the late 8:00 pm start or about the possibility of overtime periods and I am really hoping for direct trains without the change in Jamaica.
But hey, it’s going to be 80 degrees today! Yay for Spring 🙂
Good luck to Michele and all of the runners today running in Boston!Spring Favorites! #Dior #Nike #Spring #NHLplayoffs #Islanders #lululemon #IHOP Click To Tweet
